I Need Wheels!

Nine months of working and hitchhiking to go to and from work, I have decided to get a car. Not having a car and be mobile is getting into me. It's not convenient to move around grocery shopping or for an outing with friends and none of us having a car. Taxis here use fix rate. That's twenty bucks to the city. One way. And another twenty bucks going back. Madness.

So I set out to find what cars I'd like to have and I decided on three options. Toyota Vios, Perodua Myvi and Proton Satria Neo. But it is unlikely I'll be able to afford the Vios with a hefty price tag of 75 thousand minimum... I'll have to forgo that option. Sigh. I'm rather wary of owning a second hand car and the price is close to owning a new one. No point really...

Between the Myvi and Satria Neo, I'm not sure which. I've driven the Myvi but have yet to try the Satria Neo. I do like the Myvi but it lacks in engine power I feel. It could use a little push in that department I reckon. Anyone using or driven a Satria Neo before?

My dream car... If only the Vios isn't ridiculously expensive.

You know you love me.

I say the Neo...more macho and u need a touch of that since you are becoming more of a house wife these days. Myvi...dont see u in it...eeekks!

Myvi unless it's manual, lacks the oomph! I hv a Myvi..Sometimes i feel paiseh whn a Kancil overtake me whn goin uphill. Myvi's boot space is also limited..However, Myvi is good in quality wise & it looks cute. However, if i hv the $$$, i'll opt of Vios! Neo i hv no comment. So sorry...Bt it looks nice too...

What's your budget like? Normally for a first car if you haven't been drivng much, I'd recommend a cheaaaaapo car. One that you won't shed a tear if it gets roughed up.

ShaolinTiger: Yea I do plan to give it a go. :)

PaperDrawnBoy: Hahahah. Machoness. :P

Simonlover: I know what you mean about the Myvi. We'll see how. :)

Ban: Budget is the price of Myvi and Satria lo.

I was in a Kelisa car crash remember? So no small cheapo cars for me...

Hey, my 1st trip here. ^_^

Satria neo is great! Since you like to rev-up, it's lotus-inspired Campro engine will satisfy you. And the price is pretty ok too. Btw, I'm a car enthusiast and Neo is the only local that visually satisfies me. ^_^
