Hav­ing wheels of free­dom

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MOTORING -

IN a coun­try where good pub­lic trans­porta­tion is still be­ing de­vel­oped, cars have be­come a ne­ces­sity for many of us.

While the price of used cars has dropped, get­ting loans to fi­nance a pur­chase can be quite a daunt­ing task.

Lower loan amounts equate to a higher down pay­ment and higher in­ter­est rates mean you need to fork out more on the monthly in­stal­ments.

Be­ing a used car, the war­ranty is al­ways non-ex­is­tent and main­te­nance can add a big dent on your wal­let.

If you have just started work­ing, you do not need such fi­nan­cial obli­ga­tions.

This is why buy­ing new is al­ways the smarter choice.

This month, we come out with some re­views of cars that we think are worth a look.

We have the usual sus­pects — Malaysian, Ja­panese, Euro­pean, Korean and even a Chi­nese car.

The lat­ter will be launched soon and bear in mind, the China car com­pany has re­ally stepped up its game by of­fer­ing good qual­ity ve­hi­cles.

The most im­por­tant thing is to set your mind straight.

A car pur­chase can be a pas­sion­ate buy, but for first­time car buy­ers, you need an ac­coun­tant’s point-of-view, too.

Per­haps, our ar­ti­cles will help you to com­bine those two needs into a car you will be happy with for the next five years.

Happy mo­tor­ing!
