    pag direct buying kasi, minsan hindi dinedeclare ng seller kung may hidden defects yung oto.

    Dealers also sometimes give other services like assistance in transfer of ownership. Pag direct buyer, ikaw maglalakad non pipila ka sa LTO, pupunta ka sa Crame etc. etc.

    Reputable dealers also sometimes verify that their cars are legit especially if they want to protect their name. Mahirap na baka carnap yung binebenta nila.

    There was one incident in Lucena...

    depende... kasi minsan over-confident ang mga direct-buyers... tapos ,may papaayos ka pa... sa dealer kasi sulit, eh medyo mahal pero wala ka ng paayos...

    lalabas pang masmahal pag-direct buyer kung may papaayos ka pa...
