    I know how cars are priced in the Philippines. My focus is not how much the vehicle would cost but how the dealers take advantage of Filipino buyers due to lack of awareness. Let's just stick on the thread title.

    First, why 6 months of waiting time? Is that how long these vehicles are produced or KIA is just waiting for unsold units from other locations (Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc) to clear out?

    Second, what would they want P300k to reserve a unit for? Is P10k or 20k not enough? P300k is simple and plain extortion.

    As of this time, I'm sure KIA is in the process of developing already next year's model update. While some pinoy buyers wait for 6 months for their units to arrive, a few month's later a new version will be announced. Suddenly, this year's model release becomes last year's hot model. Value wise, not good.

    While KIA is so desperate to capture American and European buyers by virtually giving their cars away, Pinoys are being misdirected to accept a so-called deal with a lot of holes.

    I simply hope that KIA levels up their marketing efforts, the same way they do it in other countries, and stop preying on people who are somewhat gullible on this pre-selling assertions.

    talaga meron sa pasig na 4x2 crdi 7-seater na preselling? kasi when i was in their plant in bicutan for the test drive they mentioned to me that the preselling promo is for crdi 5-seaters only and that was 3rd week of March pa now i dont know if they extended the preselling to 7 seater na rin.

    by the way i also paid the 300k down when i did the test drive...

    hmmm...

    clarification clarifications guys...

    kasi now i'm tempted to do this thing....give-in to trade-in my Kia Carens CRDi for this thing....but magkano ba talaga yung 4x4 7Seater CRDi with Pre-Selling price?


    actually sa tingin ko may pakana nito ay si Alvarez....ang owner ng CAC (authorized Phil Kia distributor)....sa kadahilanan kailangan nya ng pera dun sa isang Property Development Business nya...which is AZURE (somewhere near Marcelo, near CAC din). that's just my spekulasi though....

    oo tutuo nga, mga kotse and other gamit sa States eh napaka-mura compared to the rest of the world not just Pinas...

    and tutuo nga na halos pamigay na lang ng Kia/hyundai sa EU and NA as their marketing plan to get more M.Share.....unlike dito sa Pinas na crazy pricing ang Kia/Hyundai (slightly better ...) with all their Cash for clunkers and Give away bonus schemes....

    pero at least one thing that US won't get that we do...is the TORQUE RICH CRDi engine.......yun na lang ang kunsuelo sa atin i guess. haha.

    .
    yung preselling na sorento 4x2 crdi 5 seater e walang 2nd and 3rd row aircon. fender type din ang signal light nya (so meaning wala sa side mirror), but then powered na yung side mirror (meaning powered folding).

    and also nagpa quote na ko sa sucat kung magkano yung spoiler e 7k lang quote sa kin...

    how do i know...coz i'd been to their plant for the test drive and payment for the 300k down to avail the promo and i requested for the features comparison ng 4x2 at 4x4...

    eto maybe to clarify your questions...

    i paid 300k sa planta for 4x2 crdi 5 seater coz yun ang sabi nila na walang lalabas na pre selling na 7 seater.

    i just called up sucat and they said no 7 seater for the crdi na preselling. i called up pasig to check initially sabi meron but then nung sinabo ko na na galing ako ng planta and the plant said na walang 7 seater crdi na i offer for the preselling e bigla parang di na rin sila sigurado kasi sabi ko kung may mabigay sila sa kin na 7 seater crdi e sa kanila ko na kunin instead sa sucat and i gave them my OR for the 300k i paid sa planta nila so they can check. and sabi ni ryan (pasig) they will verify kung meron nga na 7 seater crdi na preselling and they will get back to me once they have more info.

    what's the truth about the pre-selling ba talaga? Ryan of Pasig gave me a quote thru email with all variants and with pre-selling price. Pasig is own daw by a part owner of Kia distributorship

    Better clear this up with your SA kasi according to my SA wala talagang pre-selling ang EX variant, LX lang ang may pre-selling, LX gas and diesel 4x2 and 4x4.

    they have a plant here and it's located in service road in Bicutan almost right after SM Bicutan coming from Makati.

    Not sure though what kind of plant they have: either storage plant kasi or assembly plant. I was inside their office inside the plant coz that where I gave them the 300K down to avail of the promo.
