I begin to look at this loan at a different angle.

Yes interest maybe high at 4.58%

But if grab still exists for the next 10 years... if i drive enough to cover monthly installment on a pt basis without touching my ft job salary. In theory the car is ‘free’

Just need to top up from my salary to pay for annual insurance + road tax,season parking, petrol as well as servicing... if i dun have car i still need to take public transport right? Also cost money ...

Eg...

$2500 (ins) + $684 (road tax) / 12 months = $265 per mth

$265 (above) + $110 (season parking) + $240 (petrol - i pump once a week now) =

Consider $615 as monthly transportation cost + convenience...

Servicing also no more monthly probably every 4-6 mths liao since not driving ft.

#positivethinkinglol






The car is never free.

You're still driving to get paid, and in theory, you're working. Spending time not of your own.

It would be better if you have surge and it exceeds the mwe right.

Yes cp die cork standing.

Android users driving up demand on gj.
Affected iPhone users jump to use gwab.

G unable to have high surge.

Is good for those chasing mwe top up... but bad for cp

True however it's oso one way to convince yourself that it's good a deal, rather than thinking that it's a wrong step.

In theory best is short trips low fare...

So u drive less and still get more top up by gj.

Best scenario.

But if no surge and long distance even though u get more top up... the distance will erode your earnings

It would be better if you have surge and it exceeds the mwe right.

If got ft job... its not that bad... still got ft job income to fall back on if anything happens.

But if drive ft... better dun go the same route as me if u can. Cos your earnings is still used to pay for the car. So in theory u earning much lesser. But still earn more then renting a car since overall cost still cheaper then renting car (long term).


In before the car ownership vs car renting arguement surface again.

Just give a clearer pic,

Kl - get good loyalty rates and rebates from lcr so renting is cheap to him (rebates not given AUTO, need to drive X no of trips to earn it in most rebate scenario)
Couscous - is sharing the rental car with his dad so cost is half, renting is cheap to him

Those without the above 2 and OMO (one man operation) may not find renting cheap unless u got a relief driver like me last time sharing cost. Please don’t follow blindly. Do a cost comparision btw renting and buying if u intend to drive long term (more than a year). If driving less then a year. Just rent and find a cheap car to do.

So no further arguements here.


Dun like that say later all ppl chut new car nw...

If got ft job... its not that bad... still got ft job income to fall back on if anything happens.

Call grab and get $2 erp back

My arguement with them. This trip auto erp not added. But subsequently another trip managed to have auto erp added. So they acknowledge is a system glitch on their end so a one time goodwill $2 is credited back to me.

Yah. Ownself please assess.

I already describe my own situation and rational why i decided to buy a car instead.

In before someone here accuse me to push my tots on people here.
Disclaimer: DON’T INSIST u follow me. Just do your own sums and see which works out for u.


Ps: some may see me keep telling george to buy... cos i see him drive more then a year already. And the problem is always there when contract ending he is always headache finding next car. So might as well buy since going to drive long term.

Yea gotta assess all the risk.. gt pro and cons. phv is... Hmm... Dunno what to say.. lol.. sometimes when I drive, I am relieved that I didn't buy yet. But at the same time if it's my own car, cost much lower... how? I also dunno how...
