i also tot of this before...but i bought it anyway even thu i know this model may get a facelift in 12mths time...
it still looks very nice in its category...Honda Accord 2.0. disappoint me......but i pray the facelift is not massive...else next time the 2nd hand car dealers will have advantage to cutdown the price if i ever sell it after >5years hehehehe...
i am not sure whehter the price of Camry will drop in this year or not...but what i experienced during 1997 times when my civic price increase nistead of drop...n that is when the HOnda come out with free service vouchers , extended 3yrs warranty to counter the recession...the car price for new cars did not really come down... just my 2sen tots..
Vijay, I've actually test drove the Mazda 6 as well ... what an excellent car. Same goes to the Peugeot 407. But will be really tough to maintain cars like these. The parts will kill you and difficult to find. Not to mention the resell value of the car. One of my fren who bought the Mazda 6 in 2005, need to sell it off last year due to financial difficulties. After letting it go, he still owes the bank some large amt of money .... can u imagine the depreciation rate !!!
Not try to be negative here, but is just a fact to share. Besides all the minus points I mentioned, Mazda 6 is really a great car to drive, superb handling and damn powerful. Not to mention, damn sexy.
As for the Camry I booked, it is still in Toyota Thailand. Will arrived in 3 - 4 weeks. Well, is not an issue for me. I'm not in a hurry and not rushing to show off my new car during the CNY. Hahaha.
