After months of calculating and re-calculation, budgetting and re-budgetting, evaluating the pros and cons of getting a new car.........Rach & I came to conclusion to purchase either the all new facelifted Honda Jazz or the new Impul Latio Hatchback. Why? With the uncertainty of our nation's policies and rising inflation, why on earth do you want to buy a car now?.....
Im currently driving an Iswara.......much to my dislike and due to my shortage of cash 2 years back, I have no other option but to settle with a Proton. The car itself didnt give me much problems, yes they were creaks and sounds coming from the car after just 5 months driving, having bumped around the corners from some ignorant stupid drivers......I still must give her the credit, being able to sustain our harsh Malaysian road conditions and my driving "skills".
When is "the" best time to buy a car? Now, wait for another year, another 5 years or maybe not buy at all. As many of you are aware, Proton cars devalue at a higher percentage over other makes. The longer I wait, my car would have no value at all. Furthermore, a new car could consume less petrol than the existing Mitsubishi engine, that drinks petrol as fast as it pisses. So why wait?
Then it came to the final stage......choosing a brand, a Honda or a Nissan. I wanted a white Honda with the sexy curves but Rach wanted a red Impul Nissan Latio coz there were not many Impuls around town, so can actsy a bit lar.....especially in Kuantan. We didnt argue, we talked and talked and talked....but did not come to a conclusion. And so, here we are still talking...to this very day. Based on the technology, I think both cars are almost equal, the price almost at par, the shape.....both sexy. So guys, what say you?
