    kunin ko lang insights nyo. since sa previous thread ko, I'll be getting another car, so I need to dispose of one car para bawas maintenance costs and para magkasya na din sa garahe.

    i've mentioned in my other thread that I was assigned a 2011 Montero Sport dito sa office. Option neto is after 4 years, eh mapapasaakin na ito ng buong buo.

    i've also mentioned in my other thread that I will be availing of the company's additional benefit which is a car loan. Sayang kasi 50-50 ang share..... For this, we have decided to get na a 2011 Altis G M/T.

    yung panghalili ko is a Hyundai Getz 1.1 2007 Model. Although mataas na ang odo reading neto (nasa 150k na), madami na akong pinagawa the past two years and its still in excellent running condition. The Corolla is newly top overhauled and is at around 110k sa odo.

    ginagamit ni misis is yung 1999 Corolla Lovelife XE..... pang binata ang porma, naka 15" TOMs rims, TOMS muff, lowered and naka Simota.

    Kung kayo ako, ano ang ibebenta nyo?

    Yung 07 Getz o yung 99 Corolla XE?

    Pros of retaining the Getz:

    a) Excellent FC
    b) Makinis pa.
    c) Halos bago na lahat. Ang hindi ko na lang napapalitan is yung A/C compressor. Nagpalit na ako ng makina, clutch, brakes, cooling system.

    Cons of retaining the Getz:

    a) Sobrang tagtag ng ride. Although wala namang problema sa suspension. Ganito na talaga ang ride neto dahil sa suspension design.
    b) Resale after lets say, another 3-5 years.

    Pros of retaining the 99 Corolla XE

    a) Ganda pa ng condition. Ride quality is really ok pa din.
    b) Its a Toyota

    Cons of retaining the Corolla

    a) Kailangan ng hilamusan ng onti.
    b) Carb type
    c) Medyo mahina humatak compared to the Getz
    d) slightly higher FC than the Getz

    Although the selling price of both vehicles is almost the same (around 180k for the Corolla and around 200k for the Getz), parang mas madaling ibenta yung Corolla compared to the Getz, because of the demand and Toyota's reputation.

    What would you sell and what would you retain?

    TIA....

    Sell both, kukuha ka naman na paps ng bago....

    Or retain the getz, bakit ka nga pala nagpalit makina?

    IMHO, hard to let go of the Toyota, but given the inventory already has an Altis which is same class as the Lovelife, getting rid of the Toyota will broaden your range in terms of engine displacement and fuel consumption i.e. Montero (when you want to go big/longhaul purposes), Altis (daily comfort drive) Getz (daily drive "tipid mode"). My two sentimos.

    can't sell both bro.... kailangan ng backup car din in case nasa repair ang isa.

    i got the getz second hand din.... apparently, hindi marunong mag maintain yung ex owner. punong puno ng sludge yung makina, even though alaga sya sa oil change sa akin.

    nagkaroon ng overheating problems and nabasag yung engine block. pero oks na sya ngayon..... replaced it with a surplus model 2010 engine.

    Benta mo nga nalang pareho mahirap maintain pag ganyan base sa kwento mo.

    Much better kuha ka new car like jazz o Subaru Xv mas pogi at pang binata.

    Bro.,- congrats.

    Balita ko kasi,- pinasabog mo ang makina ng Getz mo sa sobrang hataw e...

    So, you will have either:

    MS (Mitsubishi) + Altis (Toyota) + Getz (Hyundai)

    or

    MS (Mitsubishi) + Altis (Toyota) + Lovelife(Toyota)

    So, ang labanan lang ay practicality of owning either the 99Lovelife or the 07Getz.... Almost the same selling price na ngayon.... Sa akin,- mas okay i-maintain ang Getz...

    150TKm for Getz (malamang palitan na ang compressor because of the vintage); 110TKm for the Lovelife? (hilamos na ang katapat)

    I'd go with the Getz bro,.... Mas modelo,- Mas maliit for your pangharabas....

    Looks also good in your garage - walang brand loyalty (like this person... )

    bro CVT, di naman kailangan congrats....... di naman ako promoted.... hehehehehe.. been in this position for around 2.5 years.... meron lang palang akong privilege ng onti na hindi ko alam. hahahahaha.

    di ko naman hinataw yung getz, if i remember, i only did 130 kph once..... nung namatay si erpats and kailangan kong sumugod sa asian hospital dahil nirerevive na daw. otherwise, i only maintain the 80-90 kph speed sa skyway.

    tingin ko yung compressor can still hold for around two more years..... intact pa and wala pang problem ang AC systems.... pero who knows? lam naman natin na it can conk out ng bigla.

    same naman with the Lovelife, hindi pa napapalitan ng compressor. ang ayoko lang naman sa getz is yung ride comfort, pero sulit na sulit yan dahil sa FC... and pwedeng yun ang gamitin ni misis (route nya naman is las pinas - alabang lang).

    sige pa..... more insights..... hehehehehe.

    Ikaw talaga bro.,- iyon nang MS ang pagamit mo kay Kumander....

    Doon ka na lang sa Altis...

    On second thought,- baka huwag na lang Altis ang kunin mo (to be be availed pa kamo),- baka iyong mas matangkad na sasakyan,- Tucson, Sportage, Escape, CRV para mas mataas ang driving height kung si Kumander ang gagamit niyan...

    Tsaka A/T na ang kunin mo,- very reliable na ang A/T tranny ngayon.... Mallit na rin ang diperensiya sa presyo vs. M/T variant.

    Nothing beats driving comfort + height.... (Kaya nga ayaw na ni wifey na mag-drive ng oto.. )

    If it were a newer Corolla, I'd go for the Toyota. But what's important is that the car should be mechanically sound, with comfortable AC.

    Getz ako.
