Buying a 2nd hand car (Buy and Sell Offers strictly prohibited, FAQ on Page 1)

  • Hi Guys, need your input and advice. Planning to buy our first family car and gusto ko sana is Van/Minivan type (mga 7 seater or more). Budget is very limited lang 100k, so bale 80-90k sa unit and yun 10k is for maintenance or paayos/paganda ng unit kung needed. Meron ba makukuha na good unit sa ganyang budget? Checking ako sa Toyota Lite Ace, Hyundai Grace, Kia Besta and Nissan Vanette, Tamaraw FX or baka meron pa iba? Or mas better na sedan type na lang like Corolla or Lancer? Thanks in advance!

    at 100k po sa tingin ko nasa Sedan class makukuha mo po

    pero suggest ko iwas ka sa Korean 2nd hand at mas-ok pa yung japanese 2nd hand at iwasan niyo yung Surplus (also palayaw ng kotse sa ibang bansa/territoryo)

    for that price range sure ko mga corolla/sentra/lancer o sedan type, di ko rin advise yung Suzuki Hi-carry/Multicab-Van

    @Vash
    Thanks sir, actually yun nga iniisip ko. Kapag pinilit ko na Van, baka un sakit sa ulo lang makuha ko sa budget ko. Pero kung sedan, around 80-90k eh meron na ako nakikitang good condition na unit (yun tipong sasakyan na lang).

    Yun Toyota Lite Ace okay ba? Meron kasi ako nakikita around 80k and mukhang maganda pa.

    I would suggest bring in "Kumpare"-ng Mekaniko for this.... lalo na specialty niya ng toyota

    naalala ko yung nirestore namin na liteace. may variant yung liteace (91 model ata) na 4 speed manual lang tapos steering column mounted, later models na yung proper shifter gamit.

    issues ko sa liteace:
    - underpowered (5k engine lang)
    - weak a/c (remedied by a good a/c shop na modified ang a/c system, will cost 10-15k)
    - prone to overheating (remedy namin is a bigger radiator)
  • Bakit po kaya ang baba ng selling value ng mga chevrolet 2010 models and below cars? Madame kase ako nakikita 2010 below models nasa 150k lang. Kung icompare kase sa Toyota or Honda na 90s and below model almost hindi nagkakalayo selling price.
  • Mahal ang parts kaya magastos maintenance
  • any reviews for Lancer Cedia 2006? whats good and bad?

    Thanks!
  • @Vash and gen0
    Thanks.

    Mitsu GLI @ 65k, tingin nyo ok na yan sa ganyang price? Or baka may paayusin pa kapag ganyan ang price range?

    Corolla XE @ 95k, mahal ba?

    Hanap ko sana is EFI na, or okay pa din kumuha ng carb now?
  • Corolla XE @ 95k, mahal ba?


    depende sa itsura yan saka model.

    Hanap ko sana is EFI na, or okay pa din kumuha ng carb now?


    1.6litre Gli lang meron EFI na model dito.... XE and XL are both 1.3litre carb... kung ako EFI na pero depende pa rin sa condition ng makina yan saka kung ano mapupusuan mo.
  • Kung kukuha ako ng big body, mas gusto ko karburador kasi yung efi kapag nagkaproblema ang hirap ayusin. Unlike yung carb, ang daming expert na mekaniko sa carb sa kamuning. Na first hand experince ko na, ang galing nila mag tono ng makina. Samantalang sa efi madami akong nababasa na hindi nila maayos ayos mga idling problems. Problema sa servo, etc.
  • Corolla XE @ 95k, mahal ba?


    hanap ka ng 80k ang price. meron kang makikitang ganyan basta huwag ka lang maselan sa paint.
  • second hand ecosport or suzuki sx4 or swift? ano comment nyo dito?

    as for Ford Ecosport:
    - evade AT variants especially the 2014 ones.... worst mangyari sa inyo is Powershift issue and expensive ATF when ATF Dialysis occurs kasi DCT technology
    - back door button nito ay medyo fragile.... a brand new back door button costs 14000+ pesos for the part only
    - very flimsy rear wiper assembly
    - feels underpowered/sluggish for 1,5L engine
    - Wipers are only OEM based so either Ford or special Brands

  • Meron akong ecosport and di ko din irerecommend. Ramdam ang under power and ang mahal ng parts. Sinagot naman ng insurance yung repair ng damages (noong na minor accident) pero sa loob ko kung walang insurance mapapamura talaga ako pag tingin ko sa breakdown ng cost of replacements.

    so far in my case sa Ecosport.... buti di pa nabanga ng aksidente

    kung MT ka sir... mukhang better pa ata
  • May naatrasan lang. Di nga masyado halata except for the broken rear fog lights. Kung walang insurance, yun yung tipong di mo na ipapagawa. The total bill was 70k+.
  • ^ano yung nasira maliban sa rear fog lights? Grabe naman kung 70k yung fog lights plus repair ng dent/repaint.
  • Most parts ng likod ng ecosport di nadadaan sa repair. Puro plastic kasi kaya puro palit maski minor damage lang

    As expected from "casa" price, pretty sure sinabay na yung bumper at 2 rear fog light assembly =/

    Yung pindutan para sa pinto lang nga nasa 14k at ordered talaga sa ford mismo (wala na kasi warranty sa amin, kaya pumayag na pero hinigi kami ng OR/CR ng Ecosport)
