Planning to buy an Alto 800 as my Alternative coding vehile. Manual or Automatic. Saan ba gawa tong Alto?
Also if there are anything I need to know issues, pros and cons please share to me.

Ano ba ang magandang kulan nito?


Got me an 2012 Alto K10 bought Nov 2012 it is made by Maruti in India (sila din ang nagdevelop). Mga naging issues ko:

-aux fan problem w/ fuse initially then the fan won't crank much later. had it replaced with a surplus fan from a pajero pero tingin ko carbon brush lang yung issue nung orig aux fan...mapapatakbo pa.
- power window - first to give is yung driver side. bought surplus na sa crv dati. ngayon yung sa passenger side naman ang bumigay. di ko pa napapapalitan.
- trunk and fuel cables - pinalitan pareho; surplus yung sa fuel, orig yung sa trunk.
- masakit mawalan ng immobilzer key.

practical car with minimal electronic parts kaya less parts to worry about. engine has been running reliably and matipid sya sa gas. it would make an excellent second car as mine was driven twice a week (motor ang prime mover ko) and quick runs ng cainta to tagaytay at least once a month. maintenance wise, may parts naman sa olympia, fronte saka super power sa banawe-araneta area.

too bad na kailangan na namin ng malaki-laking sasakyan kaya i'm letting it go. but for some reason, don't expect much on resale value if you want to sell it later on. if you want a good price, be the direct seller. babaratin kayo sa buy and sell/trade in not as fast moving as toyota, mitsu and honda.
