I only need a car to travel to and fro from work (I live in Tampines & my workplace is at Benoi). My work is on a 2 years contract tho... And sometimes, I also go out at night for supper. In this case, is it more worth it to rent a car, or buy?

But make sure the 8+ year old car dont have problems, if not the car would keep going to the workshop frequently.

Get a used car that's about 8 years old.
Make sure it has no major problems.

Depends how you see it lo.  [:p]  Although it seems like it is still cheaper than uber/grab everyday than buying a car. Lol.

Buying a car is an emotional thing for me. When I finally decided to buy my humble car, purely to improve my life.. So that I can spend less time traveling, in exchange for more time with my wife and kids.. But importantly, pls spend within your means..

Tampines - Benoi should be roughly $30 per trip, 2 trip a day and 20 working days a month, that will be $1200, excluding any surcharge. Better buy than U/G.

True. But let say, you rent and wants to return, the rental company will charge for all the dents , etc. It may cost up to few grands. 

And also... nowadays rental cars aint cheap....
