    Happy new year everyone katsikot bros...

    nice to be back after long hiatus hehehe

    my mother is planning to purchase a second van to be use as family carrier and business purpose as well specifically shuttle service once in awhile...in the range of 300K-330K less

    factors to consider:

    1) maintenance costs (parts & labor)
    2) parts availability
    3) low mileage
    4) durability
    5) big cargo space
    6) people mover
    if i forgot some points to consider, pls. add na lang po...

    note: if this thread happens to have the same topic please merge na lang po...thanks bros... have prosperous year ahead of us...TIA!!!

    tenxs for the replies bros, this helps...

    right now i'm still searching for the right vehicle...regardless of brand as long as the factors are met...

    starex w/ crdi engine is no no based on experience...expensive parts & labor

    toyota or nissan maybe...scout for more...not gasoline engine costly ang fuel , diesel is preferred...

    maintenance wise
    anticipated repairs
    parts prone to abuse and misuse
    other things to consider in case of troubles...TIA again!

    We had a 1995 Hiace Commuter back in the day, it lasted us about 10years and a little more than 100,000km mileage and its still one of the best van we ever owned, the only thing that broke down I remeber is the A/C cooling coil on the 7th year. Eto lang ang van na nagamit ko na hindi mainit ang singaw ng makina sa drivers seat kahit medyo luma na. We only sold it because we wanted an A/T van at that time and it was replaced by a Starex GRX TCI which was also trouble free
