when buying old cars, get rdy to pay 1k + 2k for repairs. unless you wish it will break down for 4k repairs on the first year of owner ship
Hi, i'm considering buying a 6 year old optra but was concern about the maintainence as its an old car. I was advised on buying a Japanese make car but I dont have the budget for it. Can I get some advice on this? Thanks guys

I chance upon this and the last input was Dec 2013. Nevertheless, there are still some old optra around. I drove one for 5 years and I bought it new.
Fuel efficiency is around 9-10 km/l at most. I would consider the engine powerful because it didn't jerk back when you push for it. I drove at 160 km/hr in NW highway with ease. It is a heavy car thus stable even at that speed. Don't give me any problem till....
A few days after my 160 km/h, the car 'loss power' on AYE. Luckily there is no cars behind me, it was a Sunday. otherwise, you can imagine if it was in NW highway when this happen. Engine still running but no gear engaged. I stop at the side and stop the engine. Re-start it work fine but within 5 meters, the same thing happen.
I was told it is the auto trans switch or something like that that fails. It will cost around $5-6K. If this is a Jap car, it is less than $1K.
I am not sure why this happen or will it happen on other cars/models. It is definitely very dangerous. I told the agent when I bought my other car to please scrap it. I won't dare to drive it anymore.
I have not heard of similar problem face by other and I have driven many other brands. Maybe it is just this car or others can share. If you owns one, do be careful.
