Hii

I need a suggestion in buying a second hand car. My budget is not too high around 9k max. I am not very familiar about Malaysian cars, just surf on Mudah and other websites, found Saga, Kencil, Wira, Kembara Naza and Atos in my budget.... but just grabbed some knowledge from different forums, that the maintenance of the imported cars like Naza and Atos is too high, where the wear of local cars is higher. So am too much occupied with multi dimensional thoughts....

Please suggest me a gud option, low budget lighter on pocket low FC and cheap for maintenance ( I know I am asking from something from heaven)

IMPORTANT: I am a student and cannot afford much... in all

Firstly, I will transfer you to the proper topic thread...

I would suggest the Kancil if you want good FC. If you want something bigger then the Saga, and a bit more comfortable then the Wira. The Saga and Wira are proven. Many of my sales personnel were using in the past. Parts are aplenty and most mechanic would know how to service and repair them... smile_tongue.gif

You are welcome.
Not sure you are into manual or auto? To me manual have less hassle. For auto you will need to maintain the atf properly to maintain the gearbox.

FC depends on your right foot...ha! ha! but based on some friends using they say Kancil have best FC because small engine but then small car only so it all depends which suits you better. Wira of course more comfortable, larger and can be family car. But since you are a student probably the kancil will do to just to ferry you around.
As mentioned read more in the forum for feedback or you can ask the same in the forum thread I have given you earlier.
