Bakit? Kase mas maraming hinde (pa) kayang bumili ng brand new. I said "pa" kase hinde naman natin alam ang magiging financial future nila. Kasi, in my personal opinion, kung ang lahat ng motorista na may 2nd hand/converted vehicles at kung ang lahat ng taong gustong magka sasakyan eh kayang bimile ng bago abay puro cars less than three years old ang makikita natin sa roads ngayon.

    It's like this. Correct me if I'm wrong but a lot (take note: a lot, hinde ko sinasabing lahat) of the people who buy converted SUVs or vans are consumers who are the the middle income and upper-middle income bracket. Most of them don't have enough resources to buy the SUV or van that they like. Bakit? Kase kulang budget nila. So what do they do? They get converted SUVs or vans. Now, with this argument comes the question? "Bakit na lang hinde bumili ng 2nd hand na dito sa 'Pinas gawa?" Most of the time ang answer eh pera pa rin: di ba mas mahal ang 2nd hand na Pajero na dito gawa compared sa Subic converted Pajero?

    Okay, maaring sabihin ng marami sa atin na mag-ipon na lang muna tas tsaka bumili. Good point pero may mga issues din dito. For example, hinde ganun kadaling mag-ipon ng malaking halaga lalo na pag wala kang extra income or maliit lang ang extra income mo. By that time na nakaipon ang pobre, manghinayang syang bitawan ang ganun kalaking halaga lalo na pag may identified sya na mas pressing need. So, what does the person do? Hinde na sya bibili. Kung minsan, naka-ipon nga pero matagal naman ang inabot, say ten years, aba'y baka by that time eh yung mabibili lang ng naipon nya dilapitated or very old vehicle na lang.

    Ako, I earn good pero I don't have the capacity to buy a new vehicle - atsaka ang tingen ko sa vehicle eh liability, hinde asset. So what am I doing with a motor vehicle? It's, unfortunately, a necessary liability in these times for me - and for a lot of us. My vehicle doesn't earn me money. In fact, loosing ako sa kanya kase gastos ka ng gastos pagpapagawa tas nag-de-depricate lagi ang value.

    Anyways, for me - hinde pa rin solusyon ang pag ban ng Subic converted vehicles sa pag increase ng sales ng mga car manufacturers locally. Kahit i-ban pa ng government ang pag-benta at pag-bili ng 2nd hand vehicles na gawa sa 'Pinas, hinde pa rin tataas ng ganun ang sales ng mga car manufacturers dito sa 'tin - kase malaking porsyento ng motoring public eh walang pangbile ng bago.
    I agree with you bro.... and isa pa kahit na can afford ka bumili ng bago, If you are not filthy rich, you would be thinking twice before you let go af that amount... vehicles are not good investments since i do think that they are more of a liability than an asset.... imagine magkano yun bagong hyundai getz... 468 k for a brand new na low end na manual samantalang may nakita ako dito na pajero gen2 na 4x4, all power, matic, etc... na second hand... san ka na di ba?

    Not generally "can't afford".

    "Can't put up with installment" is more appropriate sir.


    Buying a 2nd hand car in full is much easier than buying brand new. Especially when you're business could not give you a definite income per month.

    Just my opinion.

    * batang raon


    I'm not even working yet, so sir cannot be applied to me.










    Edit was just trying to point out the absurdity of the "porma" over common sense argument.


    Edit2 sure business would suffer short term but will get better in the long run.

    Doc, sa Canada, pwede RHD for street use. Sa US (or some states) do not allow RHD for street use.

    Sa U.S. pwede mo gamitin ang RHD sa street provided you have it registered at a state that allows you to do so.
