I only having RM7K to buy a car.
Is a Kancil with a L7 turbo a nice bargain for Rm5.5K?
Any pros and cons for the car?
I live in JB is it sourcing part for L7 turbo hard?
Hope some sifu can help
Although I still look for other car like Wira 1.5/1.6
Corolla seg 1.6 those a more likely over my budget but will still look for it.


Currently own a Honda Jazz due to some reason need to gv it to my dad. But he only gv me so little $$$ to find a car

Update_Had bought a Wira Vdo Auto 1.5
Now is the ownership for a Very Old car start.....And Is a long way I guess.....Hahahahhaaha

Yes,those also inside my consideration. I don't mind use my own $$ to do the maintenance.
have you considered cost of rebuilding the engine, turbo, safety of the car?
not cheap and not easy.

Waja, BLM, Kelisa, old accord 2.0 / 2.2, gen2...all within budget and with some nego skill.

Just remember its used car with some minor repair needed. My personal pick is the Kelisa...its simple to maintain, easy to drive and kinda fun for its speed.

If u want some handling then its the waja or gen2. However with high mileage, the suspension parts esp for the rear multi link will set u back few hundreds ringgit.

Dont mind high roadtax then the accord it is. I think the accord comes with wishbone suspension...a bragging point.

I went to Segamat yesterday to pick up my brother bike and the used car there got olebty of choice with very competitive pricing. Its becoming like Kajang.

If u dont mind 2 wheel then a used super moped is well within yr budget. With a givi box and raincoat, rain is not an issue. U can save on petrol and maintenance. Trust me, riding is not that bad....I rode my brother used bike (kapchai) from Segamat to Melaka with no problem at all.

Does it have to be 7k only or can that be considered a deposit?

Actually there's a lot more you can look at but most cars at this price bracket will need servicing or some level of fixing. Don't buy the antiquated Kancil or the L7 turbo la. Unless you know people in the halfcut industry it'll be a pain-in-the-ass to shop for parts. But to be fair if it's not broken it won't really be an issue.

Personally I'd consider something more like 15k or so cars. 7k is a bit hard to find anything decent. Unless you want a stock Wira 1.5.

Segamat - Gemas - Air kuning - Selandar - Durian Tunggal - Melaka.

The bike is a Modenas GT128...surprisingly very comfortable and sufficient power.

My opinion, RM7k go get a new car for downpayment (e.g. new saga premium DP app. RM4k) then d rest of the money use it for monthly installment. Maintenance no need to worry as covered by warranties. New car less items to maintain anyway

Another problem I didn't mention. For the Jazz I still need to pay for the loan. So there is no way for me to buy another new car:bawling:

Because the Jazz I still need to pay for the loan,so I need to source out a car with cash.

Now,I also looking for a 1.5 wira auto. Now arranging time to see. Rm8k otr

Dont spend all your budget.
Get as cheap as possible as used car ( esp older vehicle ) will surely need some repair.

Wira 1.5 is good as daily driver from A to B but the auto got miserable fc. wira 1.5 at 8k otr? thats abt the same range with used Waja 4g18 or Campro non-cps. Whatever it is, nego like no tomorrow and if not satisfy...walk away.
