    100-150K? Hmmm...

    Try looking around in the used car lots. Kasya na kaya dyan ang 1989-1992 Corolla 1.3?

    A 1992-1995 Corolla 1.3 will fitch the budget, or a 1993 - 1997 Sentra 1.3 LEC. Set aside PPP for repairs though (overhaul? new clutch? brakes? etc...).

    Try to check out the Manila Bulletin Classified Ads on weekends. ADvice is to just take your time to look around and wait for a good deal to come along. Another place to check out is the repoed cars from the banks. There mioght be a good deal lurking out there and what you see is what you get usually (no retouches, etc.)

    Sayang, my folks just got rid last week of a '95 Lancer that was paid to them by someone who owed them. It was in pretty good condition and came with a host of extras. :)

    Agree ako kay Slamm. I got my current ride from a bank's repossession yard. All it needed after the purchase was the usual servicing and tire replacement, and it's still running well up till now.

    Ah ... pwede ang Corolla XL sa budget na yan. you can still buy a relatively new one like 1994 to 1995.

    Sentra you can still buy one at that price a 1992 to 1995 model.
    You can get an 89-93 Mitsubishi Lancer for that money. Basically, I think any Japanese-made regular car between 1989-1995 fits that budget.

    Kung Korean car, dalawa pa mabibili mo. :lol:

    Just in case your second-hand ride needs new parts.

    CLUTCH: PhP6,000-8,000 (genuine Toyota)
    BRAKE PADS: PhP1,000-5,000 (Bendix standard pads to EBC Greenstuff pads)
    HEADLAMP BULBS: PhP800-1,500

    Pls. correct me if I'm wrong. Feel free to add any more parts costs you know of. Just to help everyone out. :)

    Hi! I was wondering: How did you get the car? Did the bank post an announcement or something. I'm planning to buy a car myself, though not in the near future (lack of funds and all --- toink!), and I'm trying to learn more about cars...

    SOme banks put up ads in the classifieds on Sundays... find out where their yard is and you can pass by there during weekdays to check out what they have. BPI used to have a yard right across our village and i would go there around once a month... I almost got a S14 200sx/Silvia in very good condition before (and very affordable as well) but someone beat me to it (may connections with the bank :( ).

    Other parts that need changing some times are: tie rods, rack ends, shocks, and bushings and these will cost around P10,000 (with replacement parts like 555 and KYB shocks). Other things to do is to change all the fluids (tranny, brake, PS, coolant and oil) then get a tune up just to ensure that your ride is on good condition. :)

    Ah second hand cars from banks. I have seen a line up of this and this is all I can say.... chamba chamba.... but you have to be quick because car dealers usually go there and shop for cars too....

    But I still believe in Feng Shui =)
  • slamm and zippo_d_frog, thanks guys!

    the Silvia is a really nice car, to say the least --- sayang. i'm more inclined to 4x4s and beetle Volkswagens myself, and being in Cebu, where leaving the city on the weekends is a 15-minute drive away (talk about bad roads --- tsk, tsk, tsk.), it pays to have a ride that can tackle unpaved roads and, in the rainy season, occasional flooded areas.

    i'll try checking out the Sunday paper this weekend --- thanks for the tip and the warning! I've been collecting the weekend ads for three weeks now. i'll check them again to see if there was anything about an ad on bank-repossesed cars. But the dealers here are just cutthroat. most of my friends suggest direct buying, but it's just too frustrating.

    What about "surplus" cars? what does "surplus" mean? is it cheaper than the new model or at par?

    Surplus are used parts/cars. When people refer to surplus cars, its usually those imported from Japan/Korea. Not that adviseable IMO as its more cost effective and safer to get local 2nd hand units.

    Another place you can check out is the 2nd hand cars for sale at Nissan Gallery Quezon Ave/Libis. These are trade in units and I saw some pretty good deals there (we recently got a Isuzu Crosswind XTO from them in good condition and the price was good/fair).
  • Thanks for the tip, slamm! i'll look around the dealerships here.

    thanks again!
  • is a good reference for a car's current fair-market-value. Note however that the prices posted in the site are only starting points, and can oftentimes be reduced.
