We still have not decided to buy the Persona because my car still can move. Another reason is, I am not ready to commit to paying almost RM600 a month for 9 years.
Unfortunately for long journey or to drive up high places, I don't think my car perform. This almost means that we still need to rent a car when I want to bring my family for holiday.
Another option is, I could get a used engine from midwest auto recycling to change with my existing one. That would only be one time spending. But how long can the engine last, that is unknown.
