Those countries that don't have COE/high expense for older cars type laws show which cars really stand the test of time. Australia is a good market to look at because labour is very expensive there so if an old car faces a large repair, they will most likely wreck(scrap) it for parts instead of pay a lot to keep it on the road.

Keeping in mind everything mechanical eventually fails and a large factor in longevity is how the car has been kept by the owner(s). There are lots of older Mercs, Volvos and BMW's on the roads there. Newer models have actually been declining in part durability which has been the trend since way back after they realised if they make unbreakable cars, most people don't buy another one anytime soon and they go bankrupt.

Talking about sg lah. Our unique climate humid + hot is disastrous to electronics, plastics and rubber.

Car manufacturers that didn't "climatised" and assume every country's weather in the world is same as them often see their good quality cars became lemon in south east asia.

So far I only know Merz test their cars in desert and arctic.

Quite a few companies test in harsh climates these days.

Australian weather ranges from harsher than Singapore to some of the most ideal low humidity/heat climates. It is a big country/continent.

Hi, I'm driving Honda Shuttle. Looking to change my rims and tyres to 17 inch with ps4 tyres. Cheaper to do in JB or SG? $1200/RM3600 budget all in. I reside in the North so Johor is just a stone's throw away from me.

On a seperate note,any car polish station to recco that uses proper brands? Preferably those that open till late at night. Thank you

You might want to watch out for Stamford tyres promotion, they have rims+tyres promotion that can be a real steal.
Else go visit LCH brothers for tyres n rims.

the price varies... from rm200 to rm1k... what is your budget?

3 weeks back. went in to jb with a friend. on the way back to sg, i brought him to a car wash at pelangi. he ended up polishing the car there. quite comprehensive... wash, claybar, polish, wash, wax and vacuum. rm250 using sonax products. he was driving a suv. near the infamous shell station... lol...
