New Honda City in Malaysia


The new Honda City impressed me a lot! I love it...especially its sporty look. Our family has trusted Honda brand for a long time. But my father prefer Toyota. When I visited Jimisar Corp. last week, my wife and I were tempted to buy this car.

So we did a test drive and true enough it met our expectation. We almost book the car straight away when the salesman said he is willing to trade-in our old version of Honda City for RM45,000. However, we did not give up to our lust and decided to go home and think about it over.

After one week, we decided not to buy the car because our old Honda City is just 5 years old and we have finished paying it. I do not think I want to live in this world just to pay for cars. I really hope I have made the right decision and maybe, Honda will release another new Honda City at the time when I am ready to buy another one. Hahaha

Bye bye sayonara new Honda City...sorry to disappoint you.

ouch.. truth be told, i prefer the old honda city. this one looks a bit like proton iswara (yg kotak2 tu) at the front. However, after going thru so many headache with my current honda city, my next car shall not be another Honda. Honda Malaysia sucks! :(

p/s: i believe it is a correct decision. time is bad at the moment, save money for other more important and pressing matters.

Honda city is quite a good ride. It is suitable for a business/family car. There is no wrong or right for your decision. Only you and your wife can decide when it is a comfortable time for you to change your car. As time goes by, better cars will come along the way.

elcynthia said...

my hubby love that new City as well, but not me.. seriously, if we were to change our car (now Savvy), i prefer something 'higher' since our hometowns are at the interior. and getting a second car is not an option for today's economy... ^^

Yes, you made a right decision. I agree with you that you don't live in this world just paying car instalments. Just use your 5 years old Honda City until you are ready to buy another one. Don't make your life difficult. Plan for your future life like bringing up your children and giving them high education and etcetera.I usually change my car when it reached 11 years old. I spend my money prudently and as a result I am able to educate my children at tertiary level without taking loan from PTPTN or other source and also I bought three houses, each of my son will get a house. Wonderful!! Isn't it. It happen that way simply because I don't give up to lust easily.
