    Pag brand new, hindi lang yung monthly amortization alalahanin mo. Meron pang PMS every 3 months sa CASA to maintain the warranty. Check mo din kung magkano ang PMS ng car. Tapos sa mga major check ups like 10k, 25k, 50k medyo tumataas kasi merong mga pinapalitan na parts. Pero iba parin ang brand new and the confidence you get na di biglang titirik ang oto when you're on the road.

    sa akin naman, mahirap mag maintain ng oto lalo na kung hinuhulugan mo pa ito monthly.
    get something na second hand, pero yun ang i maintain mo ng maayos. wala ka pang utang.

    i'd still go for Mirage GLX A/T

    these cars are designed to run cheap. Mura lang din ang PMS nito. IMO Mas ok para saken kesa linggo linggo ka nasa talyer nagpapagawa dahil hindi mahanap ang sira ng 2nd hand car na binili mo :D

    A secondhand car will need more maintenance, sooner.

    And a secondhand Corolla or Civic at 400k will be the newest ones. Replacement parts for those cars cost much more than for something like a MIrage or a Celerio... especially in the case of the Civic.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Pag brandnew 10-12k ka monthly for 5yrs. Hindi ka naman siguro gagastos ng 10-12k monthly for a year sa pagawa sa sira ng 2nd hand car. Magastos lang overhaul pero kung matino oto na makukuha mo baka after 5 yrs ka pa abutin ng overhaul

    thats true, thats the point, for new cars, montly amortz plus pms, for 2nd hand car, maintenance and parts.

    sa brand new, di aksayado sa panahon dahil sa repair, and somehow projected na yung gastos mo. sa 2nd hand you can be lucky that less maintenance or unlucky that you have to pay more than a brand new car just for parts.

    Depends. If you choose a brand new Mirage over a 440k peso secondhand car, then you're not paying monthly amortization.

    If you're choosing a brand new MIrage over a 250k peso secondhand car, then you're only paying 8k per month for three years. You won't save anything over three years, but depending on how many kilometers you drive every year, you will save money eventually (considering the Mirage is economical).

    That's the big problem with buying secondhand. Any car more than several years old will start needing more and more possible emergency maintenance over time. Best way to buy secondhand is to buy the newest secondhand possible, to delay the onset of age-related headaches. You can save a lot upfront by buying a 100k secondhand, but if your time is money, you will be spending a lot of it just maintaining your ride.

    go for the brand new one, for worry free driving like out of town trips and to avoid mechanical problems due to heavy traffic especially here in metro manila.. but if you have a friend or a friend of your friend whose into auto buy and sell, and will agree to lend the unit you want, even for the whole day (syempre sagot mo gas..hehehe) then bring a mechanic with you to inspect it, ride it...then at least you can decide..

    3. My budget for a 2nd hand car max is 250k, pwedeng ipush sa 300k kung magiipon pa ako ng konti.
    a quick browse from sulit showed you can get these cars for that budget:

    Toyota Vios 2004 A/T = P265k
    Honda Civic 2004 A/T = P300k

    i don't think titirik sa daan ang mga yan. hindi naman yan katandaan.

    to give an example, we bought a 2002 Toyota Revo VX200 A/T last Sept 2012 and until now wala pa kami naging problema. maganda ang engine, transmission, chassis at body.

    bago ka bumili ng 2nd hand car, you have to inspect it properly. bring along your uncle na maalam sa sasakyan or a mechanic.

    4. My budget for a brand new car is 150k max downpayment, then 12k max monthly. Pero if nagipon pa ako for another year, then maybe i can do 14k monthly
    as long as kaya ng budget mo ang monthly amortization, maintenance and fuel, it's okay to get a brand new car.
