For those who are waiting at the sidelines for COE prices to drop further, console yourselves that car prices are cheaper now than before.

 

Back in 1997, the G8 Toyota Corolla cost $125K. The G9 Corolla dropped to $100K in 2000. Today, the Corolla Altis costs $100K with 5 years warranty and servicing thrown in. If you take inflation into consideration, the brand new Corolla today is CHEAPER than 20 years ago.

 

With Uber and Grab in the picture fighting for a piece of the small Cat A pie, COE prices are unlikely to  drop to $40K levels.

 

If you really need a car, just go for it now, before more Car Llite policies come into place and COE quote gets cut, then we will be back to $80+K COE seen just very recently 2 years ago.

Why 20 yrs ago before the asian financial crisis set in?.......if go 30 yrs before when there is no coe cars were very much cheaper!  If go back  19 yrs and the financial crisis was in full swing coe price plummetted and remain low for nearly a decade!

But i still prefer 20 yrs ago....the ft presence was not felt then.

For those with short memories back in 1997 you have to come up with a 30 percent down payment and can loan up to 7 years maximum
.

The flood gates started in 2003 when the garment allow 100 percent finance and 10 years loan. Most people use the 2nd scenario as a baseline to compare.

There are too many cars today, hopefully they cut COEs by half and impose full cash payment for COEs.
