    Help, buying second hand Hyundai Starex van

    So medyo may ipon na right, gusto ko sana bumili ng second hand na starex van. I was thinking of purchasing sa mga naka-display sa may area ng Tarlac City. Ito yung mga naka display malapit sa National road. Marami sana akong concerns bago bumili..Marami rin ako dutso malaman pero isa isahin ko muna..

    Safe ba bumili sa mga ganoon? Ito ba yugn mga Right hand drive dati tapos convert to left?

    Ano ba yung batch ng Starex na may problem sa CRDI?

    I really need your input guys. Thanks!

    Ito ba yugn mga Right hand drive dati tapos convert to left?
    Hindi po yan converted. Mga galing lang Japan yung mga converted kasi nga right hand drive sa Japan pero sa Korea, left hand drive pa din naman kaya hindi yan converted, yun lang masasagot ko, hintay hintay ka na lang sa ibang info na mabibigay ng me knowledge sa tanung mo

    Thank you wanderer. Sana marami mag reply. I can look as well sa Pangasinan (particularly sa URdaneta daw?) may be in La union na rin kung meron pa

    honestly, i dont have much idea on this. However, if you have enough budget, you can check out band new units or at least 1 which was previously owned thru car finder etc of which you can get to know who prviously drove the vehicle. Mahirap kasi manghula kug pano ginamit yung sasakyan ng previous driver. Baka may diperensyang nakatago.

    TS magtanong tanong ka din sa mga relatives, friends and friends of firends mo baka pinagbibili nila car nila or sa mga kakilala nila. Iba pa rin talaga pag kakilala mo yung bibilhan mo, alam mo kung paano ginamit yung sasakyan.

    Salamat sa mga pointers niyo.. Valued those help.

    Unfortunately nakapag tanong tanong na rin ako sa mga relative namin and lahat or halos lahat ang sinasabi ay brand new unit na lang. Kaso sa ngayon hindi pa kaya. Baka mag-aantay pa ako ng ilang taon para sa new unit.

    Starex Van talaga ang napupusuan kong van ngayon. Kaso may nabasa kasi ako sa isang thread na may batch daw ang starex na Lemon yung CRDI niya. Kaya yun ang natatakot ako baka yun ang mabili ko.

    Generally, May mga pointers din ba kayo jan pa share naman sa dapat i-check at techniques para ma-check kung walang tama ang sasakyan?

    Follow up question: I dont know about fuel consumption of Starex. Do they vary with the different models (year model/model name)?

    Thanks in advance

    The Starex is a bit thirsty if you get the a/t model (be it the CRDi or the 4d56 engines). 6.5-8km/L.

    I also see those surplus Starex units being sold and normally they don't look genuinely fresh; they've just been touched up for the sale. Better to grab a copy of the Manila Bulletin classifieds on a Sunday and check out the units there (these are the closer to actual market value).

    The surplus units from Korea might have weaker a/c and cooling systems as these are not intended for the tropical PI market. You can find your dream Starex purchased new locally at your price and in good condition, just take your time and look in Manila. Madami dyan.

    I'm not really a car enthusiast kaya wala akong masyadong maishare sayo

    But I can say that itong Starex van okay i-drive. (btw, CRDI yung amin)

    For a girl like me, wala akong kahihirap hirap idrive to. Compared to Sportivo, mas okay ang hatak nito

    So far matipid naman siya sa fuel. Kasi I remember, nag full tank dad ko nun, Manila to Bicol umabot naman kami.

    Same nung nag Ilocos kami ng friends ko, umabot din.

    And take note, ang A/C ang lamiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig

    @ slamm
    Thanks for the info. Im after with M/T. Do you know the consumption?

    Manila Bulletin? Thanks, will also try Car Finder.

    Noted: Korean Starex have weak A/C. Thanks for this info.

    I can try to vist DAU as well.

    @ Yellowdancer
    Thank you for the info.
