Car Prices In Malaysia
Digest this article, after that, you may need to vomit. What is the Malaysian Govt doing all these while. Ripping off our Rakyat for the last 30 yrs with APs designed to benefit a few well connected Bumis, the UMNO/BN have robbed millions of citizens in this fiasco, under the pretext of protecting our local industry. The Govt have forgotten we Malays are the largest customers in the country. What is the NEP policy doing ?? Ripping off the Malays (which forms 65% of the consumer base) to benefit a few UMNO politicians !!!

BMW 535i
sells for RM178,000 in the US

In the United States of America
(a developed country which we are also aspiring to become by the year 2020) a 2009 model BMW 535i Sedan is selling for about USD50,367.00. This is only RM178,000 - about the price of a Toyota Camry 2.4L here in Malaysia . The same BMW sells in Malaysia for about RM450,000.

BMW 328i
sells for RM155,000 in the US

The 2009 model BMW 328i 2 door Convertible sells for USD44,014 or RM155,369.00 in the US . In Malaysia the same car sells for over
This is an untenable situation.

Audi A4 2.0T Cabriolet Convertible
sells for RM142,000 in the US

The 2009 model Audi A4 2 Door 2.0T Cabriolet Convertible sells in the US for USD40,328.00 or RM142,357. In Malaysia the same car would sell for about RM265,000.

sells for RM85,000 in the US

In the US the 2009 model Volkswagen GTI 2.0T sells for USD 24,039 or RM85,000 only. In China the same car will cost around RM60,000. Over here the same VW carsells for about RM200,000.

And the 2010 model Toyota Camry 2.4L sells in the US for USD 19,659.00 orRM69,396 In Malaysia the 2008 Toyota Camry 2.4L sells for RM170,000. Toyota Camry 2.4L, 2010 model. RM69,000 in the US

Car prices in Malaysia are about three times higher than the prices in the United States.
We are a developing nation. Our land and labour costs are so much cheaper than the US . Why are our cars so expensive? It does not make any sense. Tak masuk akal.

Then here are some car prices from our neighbour Indonesia

The Toyota Altis sells in Indonesia for about RM46,000. The same car sells here for around RM 112,000. Again we are three times more expensive than Indonesia

The Honda Jazz sells here for RM108,000
.. In Indonesia the Jazz sells for RM 36,000. Three times more expensive.

We are paying ridiculously high prices (and actually impoverishing the Malays - who are the largest buyers of cars in Malaysia) to support an out of date, out of touch with reality motor car policy.

We are paying the highest car prices in the world to support the Proton and other locally made cars as well as support a mind boggling AP policy which only benefits a relatively few rich Malays
. A disproportionately large number of Malays and other Malaysians are
being impoverished to subsidise the wealth of a few inefficient rich.

26 million Malaysians have to pay three times more for their cars just to support Proton and 120,000 people who are directly and indirectly involved in the motor sector in Malaysia and the AP holders. That is a ratio of 216:1.

This ratio of 216:1 is too skewed. 26.0 million happier people can contribute many more votes than 120,000 members of an inefficient motor industry. 26 million unhappy people can change a Government. (The maths is not really difficult here)

And this outdated policy is impoverishing the Malays more than anyone else.

Here is some news from our DPM Tan Sri Muhyudin Yassin about our car policy. This is truncated:

Muhyiddin assures govt support for automotive parts and component sector

1. KUALA LUMPUR, May 26 - The deputy prime minister said special focus will be given to "facilitate and encourage" the development of the automotive parts and component sector despite the current global and regional economic downturn.

2. "Under the CEPT and Asean Trade in Goods Agreements, Malaysia has agreed to eliminate import duties on all products in the Normal Track on January 1, 2010. This includes motor vehicles, auto parts and components," he said.

3. He pointed out that . .. . the motor vehicle sub sector in Malaysia will not be directly impacted because of its heavy dependence on the domestic market.

4. "The Malaysian government recognises the contribution of the
domestic automotive industry towards the development of the country."

Para 2 sounds promising but then Para 3 and 4 basically says that the Malaysian motor car industry will continue to be protected. This means we will continue paying the highest car prices in the world for automobiles.

Cuba kita kira : kalau kereta Honda Jazz di jual dengan harga yang sebenarnya (lebih kurang RM36,000 saja) dan bukan pada harga sekarang (RM108,000) maksudnya bayaran bulanan pembeli kereta akan jadi kurang, mungkin sepertiga sahaja daripada bayaran bulanan sekarang.

Jika sekarang orang bayar RM1,500 sebulan untuk beli Honda Jazz, kalau harga kereta lebih menepati harga pasaran dunia, orang kita perlu bayar sekitar RM500 saja sebulan.

Maksudnya tanpa Kerajaan perlu membuat apa pun (merangsang ekonomi, belanja berpuluh billion Ringgit duit rakyat untuk stimulus dan sebagainya) setiap rakyat Malaysia yang membeli kereta yang seharga dengan Honda Jazz akan dapat menjimatkan sehingga RM1,000 sebulan daripada kos sara hidup bulanannya.

This is like giving the car buyer an RM1000 pay rise without incurring any extra costs for the taxpayer, the Government or the economy. It will greatly reduce the cost of living in Malaysia and spur greater economic growth too.

Tapi sekarang, yang menjadi mangsa dulu dan yang menjadi miskin dulu orang Melayu juga. Orang Melayu yang paling ramai sekali menjadi pembeli kereta dalam negara kita. Orang Melayu kebanyakannya makan gaji - tiap bulan dapat gaji tetap. Bila harga kereta naik gila, yang menjadi miskin di saf depan sekali adalah orang Melayu juga.

In absolute numbers, the Malays are suffering the most because they are the most in number among the fixed income people who also buy cars.

Some folks said the other day that Proton has 150 major component suppliers, dealers, distributors and about 500 other parts suppliers too. Of the 150 major component suppliers, about 15 of them are listed companies. In total they employ about 120,000 people. The Proton supply chain is a mix of bumiputras and non bumiputras. But here is a sad fact : none of them are operating at their level best efficiency.

Our motor car policy is forcing Malaysians to subsidise Proton so that Proton can sustain major inefficiencies in the Malaysian economy. This is not a good thing at all.

We have to unwind this situation. Set a target of 18 months from now to unwind all protection for our motor industry. Remove the impoverishing AP policy also in 18 months. Let Malaysian car prices reflect world market prices for the same makes of cars.

If a BMW 535 sells for RM178,000 in America , it should sell for a little less here in Malaysia (our rentals and salaries are cheaper). Fw: Car Prices In Malaysia

The Ministers continue making pronouncements about the car industry as though nothing has happened. I hope everyone will please wake up. The Government has a real chance of getting thrown out of office in about three years. The people will not accept inept answers anymore.

The ridiculous car prices in Malaysia is an issue that is just beginning to get more attention and publicity. It is going to become a really big issue in the near future. Be forewarned.

sama je cerita nya.
tol jalanraya sepanjang hayat..
minyak gali sendiri tapi tak boleh turun harga.
letrik(tnb) hutang bertimbun.

kereta tu bukan setakat tu..
roadtax kena bayar.
masuk jalanraya kena bayar tol.
berhenti...kena bayar jugak..parking kat PBT or DBKL.


  1. So, u dont support Malaysian gov? I suggest u get out of Malaysia. Find another one that fit u..or at least want u :)

    1. what if your car price at you hometown are 3 time more higher than other places? that mean you should find another places to get cheaper car??? or you ask why??? i think you will find other place rather ask why...hahahhahah

    2. It is not talking about supporting or not, but I think you do not know the truth behind that...the Malaysian hard earn peoples for to get income and having a decent life, but some culprit up there with their cronies be able to buy better cars @ imported with all the free AP's and with low imported prices car? Ow ask youself where're you now? still supporting the stupid local manufacturer car ( which own by their cronies ) and ask the peoples to used local car..??? Furthermore with high price and low qualities car?????

  2. Dey anon, ke bodo sangat? dah terang lagi bersuluh harga dia naik mendadak, menjulang tinggi, lagi mau kipas ke??? bodo la kau.. ke ko ni salah sorang warga proton? x pun bapak ko billionaire, x kisah nak lanting duit 3 kali ganda punye mahal nak beli kete?? bodo

  3. Sorry, no offence.. i'm very much surprise. In my opinion, klau u X mampu beli kereta mahal dont blame the government. Thousands, in fact milions of people around the world are buying expensive cars without making a big deal about it. The point is, NO ONE, let me repeat "NO ONE!" is forcing u to buy expensive cars. Pekerja from indonesia repair pipe pun boleh beli Camry. Malu lah org Melayu sendiri byk bunyi psal harga kereta.Tak mampu beli kereta mahal..jalan kaki atau beli ikut mampu je ye..

  4. well,that's harsh!this is not about mampu ataupun tidak but its more about a fact that our price is much higher than other countries even Indonesia and i still cant believe it.If we have an option to buy a better quality car with a good price why not but the sad thing is,kinda unlikely to happen in our country.

  5. i think yang sokong dengan tax yang melampau ini tidak tahu tentang kualiti dan kuantiti.... if you want good quality you have to pay more??ok... but what if the good quality with insane price?

  6. Please support reduce car price. Reduce petrol. Free tol. Free water. Free electric. Free parking. Clear all summon. Reduce all rakyat consumer goods by 90% plus free education up to PHD. INCREASE SALARY BY 100%. unemployed get elaun rm 3000 a months. This is the best PR manisfesto . . . Yes yes yes fools

  7. dont by malaysia car for 1 year what happen..untill price down..

  8. use consumer power ..malaysians mind is lower...not 1 hearts
