    That's like killing myself once a week.



    I'm an Uber and Grab user myself. They won't bring me home in Nuvali though.

    How about a 2000 Nissan Sentra Exalta STA?

    kelan ba "binili" (?) ng taiwan firm...? get the models before the buy-out.. those were japan...
    although i find the exalta quite handsome..

    suggestion... when you go shopping for a used car, get one whose previous owner was "small". para hindi lundo ang driver's seat..

    Ano araw ng coding mo? Give me the 130k and then hatid sundo na lang kita sa araw na yun for 1 year. Di ka na lugi dun. May driver ka pa. Just kidding.
    I doubt na may makikita ka na auto with that amount na papasok sa requirement mo. Usually mga 90's na auto if maganda pagkaka maintain will still cost more than 150K. With that amount for sure kung makakakita ka na maganda pa inside and out, may defect na itinatago either sa engine or sa aircon.

    If you really want to get another car for your coding days, use the amount as down payment then get a car loan from a bank na nagbebenta ng car na na-repo. your monthly amortization will be lesser and hindi masyado magiging mabigat para sayo.

    Park in Alabang, take the bus from there. While many of the previously free lots now cost money, there are still some free lots (*cough* McDo ATC) left.

    Taiwanese. The first "Yulon" NIssans were the "Exaltas", 1999 to 2001 or thereabouts.

    Electronics were more troublesome... lots of issues with power windows, alarms, wiring, and etcetera... back when the cars were just three or four years old. Ours had smoke coming out of the steering wheel intermittently for years. Could never get the issue diagnosed.

    Guess what the wiring issues will be like now that the cars are FIFTEEN years old?

    If you're getting an Exalta body, stick to the basics... the FE is very simple and mechanically robust... only a 1.3 liter engine, but gets the job done.

    Otherwise, better to look for the best condition 98 EX Saloon your money can buy. But those are very old cars... so don't expect much, either.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Agree, park in alabang - ride the shuttle to ehem for free basta present mo free ID nila, then taxi is easier to find and taxi fare is cheaper sa may bandang terminal 3 to makati. Hihihi.

    I had a 97ek, kung hindi ka magfofocus at magaallocate ng time itetenga ka talaga.

    Hindi pa naman ako naitirik ng mga auto ko pero ung civic ko, talagang pinagaralan ko sistema para on the first sign of trouble madiagnose or marepair agad.

    I even do a lot of "kalikot" myself. Kung imemekaniko mo - for sure, bibili ka na lang ng bago through loan.

    Yup... owning an old car nowadays requires a lot of dedication... you spend just 130k up front... but give up every fourth weekend to go to Banawe to look for parts, and you have to spend a lot of your downtime fixing niggling problems that crop up.

    Alabang Town Center, corner of Alabang Zapote Road and Madrigal Avenue... there's a McDonald's that's a separate building from the mall. Parking completely free, but you have to go early to get a spot. Then take the Jeepney back down to South Station and take the bus from there.

    Used to be easier... Park at Festival mall then walk to the terminal... but Festival parking is getting expensive, and they don't open early. South Supermarket used to be free, but they're charging now, and they don't open till 8 am.

    McDo is 24 hours.

    As the saying goes, the most expensive car is a cheap one.

    Kidding aside, at P130K for sure meron yang hanap mo. Baka nga higit pa sa expectation mo.
    The thing is, lucky you if you found it! =) And you will realize that only after binili mo na at nasubukan mo na.

    I would consider the buyer of my toyota big body very lucky. He must be, because at P80K only, alagang alaga yon. New battery, new tires, new evaporator, new alternator.. etc. Konting hilamos lang talaga kulang dahil walang bulok at walang major dents. Never involved in major accident. First owner din kaya alam ko history ng sasakyan.

    Considering buy and sell pa yung nakakuha non. Walang tawad tawad. Tiningnan nga lang at walang test drive test drive. Nag down agad ng P20K kay misis. So, yun pag uwi ko wala na ako nagawa... Kahit 11pm na ng gabi, binalikan at inantay talaga ako para makasigurado. Heheheh..

    I miss that car. Napapanaginipan ko nga minsan. Hehehe.

    I would not have sold that kung may paparkingan lang talaga ako...
