    Sir, thatís 24years old... my thought is, yes naka mura ka nga pero baka sa maintenance mag mumura ka... hehehe... kidding aside... revisit your objectives in buying the car, yung mga list ng tanong mo... mahirap na kung nasa huli ang pag sisisi...

    OT: ang paghahanap ng 2nd hand car is parang pag-ibig din, minsan swerte kasi nahanap mo yung sakto para sayo, pero meron din naman malas kasi papapasahin ka lang na kayo na forever but in the end, alam mo na yun! Hehe!

    a fuel-injected car. they are more reliable, usually, than the equivalent carburator model.
    corolla gli.
    sentra ex or ss or gx.

    As much as possible, do not scrimp when buying a car. You may get one for cheap, but you will most likely spend just as much to get it back to top shape.

    For example, we got a 1997 Japan surplus Granvia last 2016 as part of a debt settlement. This model is selling for around 150-250k in the used car market depending on the unit's condition. I agreed to getting the unit since I knew the guy really had no means to pay me and that the unit, at least, has a good engine. To get it back to daily driver material, I've had to spend around 150k on repairs and upgrades.

    The EG Civic is known for rust issues. If it is an automatic, 90s Honda ATs are also known to be unreliable. It would be better for you to get a Sentra instead. At least 2000 model or newer.

    You can get a 2002 Nissan Exalta GS Grandeur for around 150k.

    or the next sentra version after that.
    i feel that this next body after the grandeur, will be easier to maintain, as it is still very popular... taxi model... marami pang nakikita sa daan.
    the grandeur was sold in relatively small numbers... wasn't this the model yulon of taiwan handled?

    The Sentra N16 platform was sold for a long time (12+ years) in the local market. Even after the Sentra 200 (B16 platform) was introduced locally in 2010, the N16 platform was still selling better.

    The Grandeur Exalta series was released late 2001 and sold up to 2003. The same N16 platform was used over the next few years on the Sentra GX 1.3L (MT and AT), Sentra GSX 1.6L MT, Sentra GS 1.6L AT, and Sentra 180GT (1.8L AT).

    When Nissan Japan took over from Yulon in 2014, it brought the Sylphy.

    for 200k, add a little and get a less "hot" brand with good reliability. kia rio perhaps?

    saw one limited edition 2013 model priced for 360k.

    that money can get an (older) altis already. king of boringly reliable cars, if that is what the buyer prefers.
    but the older altis is a bit cramped inside. if one is big, he might not be too happy inside. the sentra is more spacious.

    i have had a cedia cvt. it drove like a dream and had generous car interior space. but it also near drove me to the poorhouse. it guzzled gas at 5-6 km/li in the city, back when traffic wasn't as bad as it is now. to this day, i still do not know why it gargled gas.

    TS makikisakay na ko sa thread mo ha. pasensya na. may mga questions lang ako as a first time car buyer. currently po kasi naghahanap ako ng second hand car for 200k max budget. 5 po kami sa pamilya 3 kids na 8y/o eldest. bulacan area po kami so usually ang magiging gamit sa kanya e panghatid sundo sa mga bata, pangpunta sa mall. pero syempre kung maisipan namin na magpunta ng manila or mag out of town ayun gagamitin din sya para dun. pero madalang lang naman. sa paghahanap ko sa OLX, FB marketplace at FB groups eh eto yung mga naencounter ko at mga questions ko:

    1. May nakapagsabi po kasi sakin na I should stick to Japanese brands when buying second hand cars kasi daw mas madali ang pyesa. Para nga daw sa kanya yung ibang brands like kia, Hyundai, Suzuki e disposable kasi masyadong mahal ang maintenance at mahirap maghanap ng pyesa. Kaya din daw mababa ang market value ng mga to dahil nga sa reasons na sinabi nya. Totoo po ba to? Should I choose a Toyota vios 2006 instead of a Kia Rio 2011?
    2. Totoo po ba na mas matanda ang sasakyan mas matibay? Kasi daw yung kaha nung mga luma matitigas pa. yung mga bago malalambot na.
    3. then yung mga malilit na kotse like alto, eon, picanto, i10 delikado daw sa kalsada. Lalo daw kung ibabyahe ng NLEX kasi daw kayang kayang durugin ng bus at truck. Tama po ba to? Should I avoid smaller types of vehicles?
    4. What about repossessed vehicles from banks? Natetempt po kasi ako na dun bumili kasi nakita ko na lower yung selling price nila compared sa second hand market. Kaso may nakapagsabi sakin na ingat din daw ako kasi 75% ng mga sasakyan dun nilalaspag na ng owner kapag alam nya na mababatak na.

    5. based on the above questions, ano po ang mas preferred nyo na bilin kung kayo ang nasa katayuan ko:
    a. Nissan Sentra 2011
    b. Toyota Altis 2008
    c. Toyota Vios 2006
    d. Honda City 2007
    e. Honda Civic 2003
    f. Kia Rio 2011
    g. Mitsubishi Lancer 2006
    h. Kia Picanto 2011
    i. Hyundai i10 2012
    j. Hyundai Eon 2014
    k. Hyundai Getz 2012
    l. Suzuki Alto 2014
    m. Suzuki Celerio 2011
    n. Mazda 3 2006

    suggest lang po kayo ng iba pang sasakyan kung wala sa list yung suggestion nyo. sakin po kahit ano ok lang basta hindi yung sakit sa ulo at sirain. at syempre yung fuel efficient.. hehe.. maraming salamat po!

    No prob bro.
    Good luck sa car hunt.

    Tip ko lang wag mong tipirin sa pagbili imaximize mo yung budget mo sa pinaka OK na makukuha mo.
    At wag mag madali, pag may pinuntahang unang auto wag agad bilin. Humanap ng 2nd 3rd 4th o 5th option for comparison sa mga unang nakita mo. :D

    Exactly 1month na bukas nung ginawa ko tong thread na to, pero wala padin ako nabibili. Ang ginawa ko nag ipon pa para makakuha ng mas OK na unit.

    Pero decided na ko na Mazda 3 ang kukunin ko. Lakas ng tama ko eh, 1.6 malakas sa gas. Pero trip ko pa din.
    Nagustuhan ko yung size and comfort nya sa loob. hindi masikip(For me). Since weekend car lang naman at minsan out of town hindi naging big factor yung gas consumption sa pagpili ko. Based sa review ko halos same lang sila ng konsumo nung 98model ko na sentra.
    Sa parts naman may mga group naman na pwede tumulong sa paghanap ng piyesa.
