About cars in Japan


We finally bought the above car, a Toyota Sienta 1.5 liter for S$32,500 with all the extra features. We decided to pay half the amount for my parent-in-laws as a present. In return, we have the privilege of driving the car whenever it is not in use. Renting a car in Japan is very expensive.





My sister-in-law got her Mitsubishi 650cc for about S$20,000 last year. This car is fine if you do not carry too much cargo or baggage or more than 2 people. It is economical and reliable too.

So lucky! Nice car! Here that amount can barely get us a piece of bidded paper!

The car is even cheaper (basic is S$25,000) if we do not buy the extra
features/gadgets. True, can perhaps buy a motorbike in SG.

I suppose the Japanese won't bother with the add ons? Only Singaporeans go there see the car so cheap are eager to add on this and that!

You are right Candy! The average Japanese finds the basic price of 25k already very
expensive. In fact, my father-in-law does not want to many extra add ons but we were the
ones who encouraged him to have them.
