Nagpapalakad ako kay Raffy London.  3 years and 2 cars na.  Insurance guy siya, kilala sa mga car clubs.

No appearance yung registration, wala pang charge yung service.  Last time hiningi niya lang yung details ng auto tapos yung registration number.  Pag dating ng hapon or the next day, delivered sa bahay yung mga papel at sticker. 

Babayaran mo lang yung cost ng insurance, registration at emission test.  Kumikita siya sa insurance and emissions dahil negosyo niya yun.  Abutan mo na lang ng pang gas yung rider kung mabait siya sa iyo.

Heto yung multiply niya:

Guys, need suggestions.

I am looking for a car around this budget. So far, I am thinking about the 2004-2005 Toyota 2.4 Camry or the 2007 Hyundai Tucson. Anyone here have these cars as personal drivers? Can you give your personal reviews?

Was also thinking of a c180 or c220 96-97 model but still half-hearted due to price of maintenance concerns.

Please give me your thoughts and/or inputs on these cars and any other suggestion within the price range.

Cheers.

I don't own a Tucson but I've been hearing quite a lot about the excellent fuel consumption of its CRDi variant.

the camry is a good choice.  its a luxury sedan so dont expect much from its fuel mileage.  the tucson is like a sedan in a way since it also seats the same number of people but its distance from the ground is higher.  if you want fuel efficiency with power you should really try the tucson.  just make sure its the 4x2 crdi one.  there is also a 4x4 crdi and a petrol variant.  from what i know the 4x2 crdi is the best choice if youre going to get a tucson.  maintenance wise the tucson is also not that expensive so its a safe choice

i was actually surprised that you gave him the money even before talking to him for the first time.  i would think that you would talk to him first then pay THEN get ignored.  hehehe!  i think medyo positive parin sya for me kasi sumasagot parin at may reputation na sya na inaalagaan.  medyo hirap lang siguro sya mag lakad ng papers mo.  and the real problem would be kung mag claim ka na ng insurance.  kung ganyan din katagal then talagang mahirap.  di kasi natin masasabi baka sa application lang mahirap pero pag customer ka na alagang alaga ka na.  ganun kasi minsan, pag hindi ka pa masyado kilala mas priority ung regular customers...

Kung isa lang talaga gusto mo, no choice but sa Banawe or sa Evangelista runners. Kung sa shops, pair lagi yan, kahit sa surplasan, hirap kasi ibenta ng isa lang.

You could go to sir billy of poorboys banawe (mcdo side). I believe he has a source for depo (taiwan) headlights.

if you do get from surplus shops, remember that it'll prolly be sourced from a RHD car which means your beam pattern will for RHD and not LHD.

is there a difference in the beam pattern for RHD and LHD cars in terms of signal lights?
because there is no patch for human stupidity

Its just signal lights, not really a problem if it comes from a LHD or RHD car.

prado,
na-aksidente ako nung tuesday. along ayala ako, biglang may tumawid na pedestrian na hindi nakatingin. eh ang lapit ko na sa pedestrian lane, tapos tumatakbo yung tao. pag brake at swerve ko, he ran into my car sa right side. tapos tumama yung ulo niya sa windshield. ayun, basag yung windshield. yung tao naman may 7 stitches sa ulo, dislocated shoulder at bugbog yung katawan. naiinis lang ako kasi walang tawiran sa area na yun. konting lakad nalang nasa underpass na siya ng ayala eh. anyway, nangyari na yun...kaya eto, sobrang laki tuloy ng gastos ko.

yung windshield ko napapalitan ko na sa aguila auto glass. ok dun, mura at pulido yung gawa. kelangan ko nalang pagawa yung body at hood kasi may yupi. pati yung signal lights nalang.

mga brothers, magkano ba ang rough estimate niyo ng isang pair ng signal light from the surplus shop? wala kasi akong idea kung magkano eh. mga less than 2k ba? para lang may idea ako at di ako mataga ng husto. hehe. thanks.

I just let the insurance company do it for me. May patong, siyempre. But I hate being in an LTO branch so much that I think the additional fee is well worth it.
