Hi all, some of you might know that i used to drive a Lexus Gs450h , bought 2nd hand 7yrs old with 117K km.
Although i did choose lexus for reliability , it gave me 2 big big issues one being the hybrid battery and another being the engine blew up, hence have decided to scrap the car.
with the lexus , i have learnt a few things :
- 3.5 road tax can die
- horsepower not worth in SG, although car is silky smooth
- dont buy a old hybrid car
hence, I've been looking around for the next car that will not give me so much problems ( at least not so expensive ones) and have come across a friend that drives a W204 facelift model. so far since day 1 of owning the car, the car had no major problems other than a few cheap wear and tears that were very minor.
anyone can share any opinion regarding the reliability of the w204 model, buying 2nd hand , and also, after the expiry of COE, will it be worthwhile to renew COE on this model?
i have yet to test drive the car, but overall looks and interior quality are pretty nice IMO
any opinions regarding is appreciated, or even other car suggestions are welcome too.
looking at c180 or c200 model
