    BTT: What happened to your evaporator? Leak? Our mileage is less than 20k. Only issue I have is that the cruise control light starts blinking after an hour of city driving. Showed it to two different SAs from two different casas and didn't get a definite answer. One even said that I might have encountered a wet slippery section of road. That was when Angat dam was already nearing critical level
    Yeah, they said that "dirt" was starting to eat away on some parts of the evaporator causing the leak. And that I'm not the only one with the same problem. I took that explanation with a grain of salt though but I'm glad my warranty still took care of it.

    Also, as they were troubleshooting the issue they offered me to replace the cabin air filter because according to them it already needs replacement. They quoted P3K for the damn filter! I said no and just decided to buy a K&N filter from Amazon for just around P2K. These dealer prices are very unreasonable.

    After the 3 years car registration that I have expires, when do I exactly need to register my car again? It would be my first time registering a car so I wouldn't know. Thanks.

    Last digit of plate number = month of year.
    Add 2 months for GCQ.

    So if your plate ends in 7 (July) you can register in September.

    Get your TPL from a bank. If they say your plate does not appear on the LTO's database you have to go to the LTO first to have it encoded.

    The actual registration is quick. It's the queue at the emissions test that takes too long. Get yours tested at an independent center.

    Right but do I count after or before the 3 years registration ends? My plate ends with 7 but I got it November 2017. So does that mean I need to register on September 2020(before Nov. 2020) or on July 2021 (after Nov. 2020)? I'm thinking it's the former because the car needs to be registered before the current registration lapses. If so, when will the 1 year registration start?

    Why do you recommend getting TPL from the bank? I do remember getting a TPL from the "tabi tabi" when we registered my gf's car.

    Tabi-tabi is double the price compared to banks. You don't even need to tip the stencil guy anymore because all you need is the chassis number.

    You need to register your car September this year. Schedule is based on plate number not on date bought. They will adjust the fees accordingly.

    We also got our unit Nov 2017 but plate ends in "0" so we're due in December.
