Secondhand Cars for RM30K and Below in Malaysia

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure; this rings true when we talk about used cars. Unfortunately, in this economy, only some can afford a car, especially a brand-new one. Thus, the reason buyers opt for secondhand vehicles, ideally a decent one for RM30K or even better less! 

For some Malaysians, using public transport daily is time-consuming and tiring, especially when your location is not within walking distance to the nearest LRT or MRT.

Therefore, even though a car’s value depreciates faster than real estate’s, Malaysians usually buy a car first over a home due to necessity and priority.

Hence, making used cars in demand due to them being cheaper and yet still decent for years ahead. 

We asked many people what is considered a ‘good price’ for a used car. While a majority gave realistic answers, such as depending on the car model and price, we also received a benchmark mark of RM30K.

You’re winning in life if you can get a decent car with RM30K, they said! 

You might have 99 problems in your life; let us help solve one of them by informing you that finding secondhand cars for RM30K is possible here at Motor Trader!

Reasons to Buy Secondhand Car

Benefit of secondhand cars

There are undoubtedly many reasons why people opt for secondhand cars. Some of these reasons include the following:

1. Lower Decripriciation Value

A vehicle’s depreciation value rises to 30% when you use it for the first time. Hence, the huge gap in price between new and used cars that is five years old. Even though they are both of the same models and have the exact same features.

2. Lower Monthly Loan Commitment

Used or secondhand cars allow buyers to save money with lower repayment loans. This is mainly because the original owner has already paid for the ‘new car’ price. Your loan that would have been a 9 years commitment can be reduced to 5 years.

3. Lower Insurance Policy

Did you know your car insurance changes yearly depending on your car value? Therefore, a used car with a lower market value has a lower insurance policy rate.

4. Less Loss when reselling

Your secondhand car might be for life or for a certain time only. If you decide to sell your secondhand car, you won’t lose a lot because the depreciation value is highest within 1st to 5th year. Once you have reached that point, it will continue to depreciate slower. Therefore, you might even get a resell value around the purchase price.

5. More options, lower price

Used cars offer buyers more variety! Don’t get shocked that for RM30,000, buyers can also get a Volkswagen! A budget for what would have been a brand-new Myvi can get you a decent Honda. With some research and negotiation power, you can get some sweet deals!
