    I just bought a lancer gli 91 model, syempre me mga problems na sya...

    1 is ung driver window di na naibababa (not power window)

    2 is ung aircon mejo mahina na, minsan malamig pero pag talagang mainit di na kaya, parang sumakay ka sa taxi na pagka init sa loob

    3 is ung front bumber the one that holds the license plate needs to be replaced.

    4 lots of scratch (lady owned ito dait) and as I read black cars are hard to maintain but this is the lesser priority since all I need to get fixed asap is the window and the aircon

    Any shop or tips you might want to give me? I would like to know some auto shops near alabang/muntinlupa area sana. Ung mura and hindi magtitake advantage sa gaya kong alang alam sa auto

    Sorry kung OT: tanong lang, bat di mo ba tinest drive yung sasakyan mo bago mo binili? Or at least pinatignan sa mekaniko and pina estimate ang mga magagastos? Seems like you just bought your self some problems - they're not hard to fix pero syempre hassle and gastos.

    Hey, cheer up. It's not the end of the world yet. Your newly bought 2nd hand car only got minor problems. I don't think you have problems with the engine, do you?
    1) your window mechanism got to be replaced, sprocket could be the problem, or just the handle itself.
    2) lots of aircon specialist around could manage to fix your aircon problem. It propably needs cleaning, drier replacement, freon recharge, thermostat control, etc.
    3) Check some surplus parts at Evangelista St. for your bumper if you think you really wished it replaced.
    4) Regarding scratches, contact sir theveed here in this forum. He will help you get rid of them.

    The A/C is to be expected. Power windows deteriorate over time and lack of use (probably a good sign that it IS lady driven... never rolled down her window? :lol: ). The bumper is unfortunate, but if it's just a replacement of the fasteners, a little fiberglass work would do. Scratches are a given for a secondhand. I'd prefer a scratched car to a repainted car. At least you know it's orig.

    Be thankful they didn't give you a crap transmission or a dying engine. If those are your only problems, you're pretty lucky.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    1. The window glass might be disaligned and/or the gears need proper lubrication.

    2. Aircon problems vary. Have it checked at a reliable shop. There are topics on reputable aircon repair specialists around here.

    3. Which is the problem, the bumper itself or just the plate holder? There are a thousand-and-one Pinoy ways to fix bumpers and the plate mounting, otherwise you should be able to find a surplus one in Banawe, Evangelista, etc.

    4. A sachet of 3M rubbing compound can minimize shallow scratches. Meguiar's detailers can do a much better job so long as the scratches haven't reached the sheetmetal.

    :D

    In aold car you eally cant expect to be perfect lalo na kung ang binilan mo hindi naman ganoon ka dami ang knowledge sa kotse. Pat ng isk iyan sa second hand.

    Anyway
    Start with the basic

    Dont foget emergency tools reserbang gulong to be check
    Jack
    Tire wrench
    eserve water

    And dahil luma na nga, a tow rope will be a help pagdating sa gipitan. and also pa memeber ka na din sa mga tow truck services like PMA or Wheelers club

    Honestly bandang alabang at paranque mahal mga singil ng mga shop, puo first class A B kasi nandyan.


    Kung may problem ka post mo muna dito para mgakaidea ka kung ano gagawin, Marami talagang shop na manloloko or hindi alam ginagawa

    Ung window mura lang yan...

    Ung aircon sana additional freon lang

    Bumper...either bibili ka ng buo sa surplus or remedyo na lang...bumper sa surplus costs around 2500 in our place

    Scratches? collect n collect then hilamos in d future hehehe

Tips for a new car owner but an old car :)
