Price lah, bro. Only the rich buy things without having to know the price.:money:

Anyway, Do try to verify that the mileage is genuine and not tweeted (10 Years car with 120,000km is pretty decent)

For a 2019 renewed COE, I would say the price should range about $58 to $63k range, depreciating at about $6K/year.

Other than all these, it's condition of the car and if all parts are still in good working condition. And google on the car dealer and check if they are on case trusted and not blacklisted.

Ask for test drive and check for warranty coverage period etc; because any repair or replacement later is just equivalent to purchasing the the car at a cost higher.

Just standby a few Ks to have some parts replacements.  

That's the pros and cons of getting a 10 yr old car; you are subjected to much lower depreciation but you are subjected to all the unknown wear and tear of the car. 

 

Hope more gurus here can advise you further. Good Luck, Zappee....

Price is decent!

Renewing the COE depending earlier this year is around $35,000

Foregoing the rebate or 50% OMV is around $20k+

Checking the mileage is very important!

Before buying it get a workshop to plug in the Diagnostic checks.

The actual mileage will show up and any fault errors too.
