Actually in bolehland, the most value for money vehicles are the pick ups because they dont attract some duties which makes passenger cars more expensive. If you can live with their size and the fact they run on diesel, the prices are relatively cheaper.
I thought of buying one but the size put me off. I guess with some practice it should be OK. Having a diesel engine is not a deal breaker for me. I just have to remember not to pump in petrol by mistake.
" In the land of the blind the one-eyed-jack is king."
The nozzle of diesel pump is supposed to be larger so that it cannot fit into the fill pipe on a vehicle tank designed for petrol. However, the larger diameter diesel nozzle is not a complaince/requirement, and many diesel pumps have been fitted with standard petrol nozzles.
Just make sure you are not color-blind as different fuel has different color code…
Camry is not bad actually, spacious and more comfortable(for back seat passengers) than BMW 5 series and 3 series(except 328), but I have driven car with better safety features. Naturally, want to look for something better.
Wish – too bumpy, uncomfortable
Serena - too bumpy, uncomfortable
Passat CC – steady, nice, if I am not mistaken, very little headroom
C Class – not enough headroom
E Class – the car bottom too low, easily hits the speed bumps
BMW – the middle seat at the back is uncomfortable
Q5 – very light and easy to drive, back seat not so comfortable
Evoque – not enough headroom
A4 – too small

Maybe you should go and have a look at the new mondeo. or the infinity q50
Actually, one does not need to worry too much. There is always not enough in the planning of retirement money, you tend to add a new target after old target has reached. Just make sure healthcare is taken care by adequate insurance and set aside a reasonable sum for kid's education, the rest of the money should be spent NOW for things that you like to do and things you want to have.
Don't just plan for the last few years of life..
If you happen to decide on Infiniti, you can pm me.
I know someone there who sold me a car before. He is a good salesman, excellent in customer service.
For cars I tend to think that installments should be 3-4 years only. If you need to stretch the payment tenure to be comfortable with the monthly installments, the car may be too expensive.
