Buy a vezel because it's cheap and it's common?

Wait till it's time to sell, you go Sgcarmart search see how many pages lor.

And the rear suspension is so harsh and bumpy, unless you hate your folks or kids then you put them there. The front is significantly more comfortable.

Not to mention the poor soundproofing, road noise so loud.

Rear torsion beam and slightly stiff setup... Took phv vezel a few times, can't tahan the back as well.
The sound you get from the dash after going through a pothole is Rough ride on bad roads as well.

For drivers is quite alright, comfortable enough on long distance highway drive. Handing was surprisingly eager when attacking the Genting uphill/downhill touge. Just dont try to test the limit.

So we buy car that is not common and expensive.
And to make profit when selling later.

What car at $80k plus has good soundproofing, comfortable ride like camry, not common and make profit when selling?

Do most Vezel owner, like yourself, changed the shock absorber as well?
Did you changed it shortly after getting the Vezel?
Those changed the suspension regretted getting the car because it is still not enough.
If u intend to change the suspension after purchasing the car. This car is not for you.

Get car with multi link suspension like camry or sedan with torsion beam which will be less bouncy.

Different ppl different stroke.

It fits the budget. No headache on spare parts. Drove all the way till scrap. So no headache on selling.
Any cars do have similar problem when selling, most of the time. Unless you direct sell and got a greenhorn that likes the car and did not do homework.

You sell to dealer, they will low ball you with reasons: Wah... many on the road, PHV car, cannot sell/ difficult to find next buyer.
If you a the buyer, dealer will say, spare parts no worries, cheap to maintain and reliable, else why so many on the road.

As such, see you are the seller or buyer loh...

Bought mine at 92k. 26 months old now.
I can fetch 70k back.
Don't think it's too much to lose anyway as my millage is high.
The more page the merrier lol!

A lot of people buy 1st hand means a lot of people will also want to buy second hand.

My friend bought a Fit for $62k
at 11 months old, sold for $56k.

Another friend bought a Peugeot that is 24 months old for less than 80k.
It was selling over $100k when bought brand new by the previous owner.

Those little page one then scary.
Coz no one want to buy, and dealer don't dare to buy-in second high price.

Honda and Toyota you won't lose out too much value as compared to other brands.

Seems like I triggered a few Vezel fanbois. Calm your titties. What I meant earlier is:

A model as common as Vezel, you're gonna get lowballed when it's time to sell, you will lose more as compared to another less common more desirable model.

At $80K I'd easily settle for a used car (1-2 yr old) than choose a Vezel at brand new. Can easily find many options that are a little less common, better soundproofing, more comfy suspension and better engine performance. But this might be easily overlooked by Honda fanbois?

(What I drive is immaterial with my opinion of Vezel)

its not u triggered vezel fanbois.

i speak for myself and driving vezel doesn't make me a vezel fanboi.

when i was looking around for a b&b ride around the 90k+ range, got mine in 2018.. i kiv a few choices not just honda. the b&b range includes kia, hyundai, honda, toyota. don't wanna venture too far out cos i wanted a easier maintenance which most workshops can handle. so the car has to be a common b&b car, to me common or uncommon it does not matter so its just different perspective.

thats why your opinion is different from my opinion and probably my opinion is different with alot of people's opinion. end of the day u buy what u like and i buy what i like and others buy what they like. not everyone will sell within few yrs, some sell in the range of 5-7yrs, some sell 7-9yrs.. its all very different from person to person.

of cos there's alot of uncommon choices out there that will attract different buyers like probably skoda, chevrolet, infiniti, seat, vw etc etc etc.... there's a market for everyone.

changing stuffs doesn't mean regretted buying the car. again i speak for my own.

my past rides i lowered by coilover, that time still single and no kids. now got kids try to avoid coilover so i tried the springs, since getting the springs so i try the new shocks option as well.

just dont really like the stock height, the fender gap abit high, but still love the ride.

i guess most crossovers or suv is quite bumpy, get some feedbacks that harrier is quite bumpy as well...
