Buy a car or use public transport? (Kuala Lumpur)

Hi all,

I am soon to be moving to KL and am trying to decide whether to buy a car or just rely on public transport.

I have heard that Malaysian cars are cheaper than imported and am happy to buy whatever as long as it's reliable. Does anyone know roughly how much a second hand car will be? Malaysian and imported. And how high are the other costs? (Insurance, parking, fuel etc)

Secondly, is it feasible to just use public transport? We hope to travel lots inside Malayisa and around SE Asia. We will also have visitors reasonably regularly (I hope!).

Any guiidance greatfully recieved!
