I'm planning on buying a second hand car to replace my Ford Escape(high maintenance costs has forced me to sell it). My choices has been narrowed down to 2 cars - Toyota Fortuner and Nissan Pathfinder. In terms of reliability and maintenance costs, which one do you recommend I should buy?

If you are trying to avoid maintenance costs - Toyota would be your best bet

Hello everybody!

I am planing to buy a Skoda Superb 2.0 TSI and I am in doubt of some things like:
- how reliable the brand and the car is
- the maintenance costs
- resale value

I am curious of some ideas, tips from Skoda owners and why not VW because it's pretty much a VW product.

In that case you can do a licence exchange between your UK licence and a UAE licence.
You just need to get an eye test done at an approved opticians - or at some of the RTA centres
You also need to have a valid Emirates ID.
Total cost is 870 AED

Does anyone know what are the cheapest cars to own?

How much are Camaros and Accord coupes? Are they cheaper or more expensive than the US?

I've done google searches but results are conflicting..

**If it bothers you to reply to this post, then don't.**

Thank you for being polite!
A few days ago a friend of mine bought a car in Dubai while on a Dubai tour.

Some cheapest new cars in Dubai, UAE

Hyundai i10 Price: Dh36,000
Kia Picanto Price: Dh37,000
Chevrolet Spark Price: Dh37,000
Suzuki Celerio Price: Dh38,000

Hi,
You cannot buy and register a car in Dubai without a valid UAE residence visa, insurance and driving licence.
This means that your “friend” could not have bought a car as a tourist!
Cheers
Steve
