Default Farewell my beloved Picasso...

After 33 months of ownership, I had to part ways and bid farewell to my Picasso whom has served me well.

My whole family loves the Picasso. The Panoramic windscreen and moon-roof have given us excellent view to the beautiful blue sky, dazzling festive lighting and the moon & the stars on a starry night.

My passengers whom I given a ride were in awed of the same and the excellent interior quality of its class which others can't rivaled. One passenger seriously wanted to buy my car if I intend to sell.

Reminiscing the day I booked the Picasso, I wanted the best I could afford and selected the Exclusive edition. I enjoyed every single moment with the you. We might, some day, rekindle the love again...

I'm also in a predicament. Someone offered me a very tempting price for my c4gp. But if I sell, I won't be able to get another ride that is just as fun, comfortable and practical. But I'm also concerned about whether our ride will hold its value when it hits 3 or 4 years old. Any advice or comments? Need to hear from more people.... Thanks

If coe prices remain should able hold value till 3 yr
But after that will slide a bit especially if high mileage
If consider sedan replacement have more choices
If mpv segment replacement nothing much honestly
C4gp has its shortcomings but its not just a paper general like some ministers
It can really pull its weight vs competitors

For large sedan 5 or 7 or e

I wasn't looking for a new ride as my Picasso was serving me very well. My Picasso saved me and my family in an unfortunate accident.

As the Adjusted Repair Cost exceeded the Economic Repair Limit, my Picasso was sadly declared a Constructive Total Loss, although the damage does not look extensive, in my personal opinion.

The greatest blessing is that your family and you are safe.

A honourably decommissioned/retired C4GP ...

bigdaddy, I tend to agree with dtech... Given today's high COEs, the low COE cars registered from 2010 and before, will likely to sustain good resale value til their 5th year where the resale value starts to drop more significantly.

I personally do think MOT will tweak the COE system and allow moderate increase from those expired COE cars back into the quota to avoid sharp COE price fluctuations. In addition, MOT has announced to invest more in public transport with more MRT and bus routes.

If COE goes down like in the past 10 years and car affordability becomes attainable for many many, then the infrastructure investment does not achieve its objectives.
