    Question Buying Cars in Subic..

    My dad is planning to buy me a car in subic.
    I know most of the cars there are converted right?
    So do you suggest getting a car there?
    Which car(s) available there do you suggest and what should we look at to know that's it's a good one?

    Thanks!

    Appreciate replies!

    No.

    Save the money and just buy locally available vehicles here.

    ^He's correct, most imported cars are from Cagayan (B-plate) or Cebu (Y-plate). If you're looking for a common car with a local equivalent, go for the local version. But for sports cars...well, the sky's the limit.

    Is it really a waste of money to get one from subic?
    May problem ba sa converted?

    I'm actually looking for a matic car (probably a sedan or a mini suv).
    Budget is around 250K to 350K.
    What do you suggest na magandang car? (local man o converted)

    The problem is not the imported used cars from Japan.

    The problem is the conversion from RHD to LHD. There are those who really take the time and care to make quality conversions using actual LHD parts.

    But there are those who just do the chop-chop method which may not only affect quality of the car but also the safety.

    And then there are the controls and release levers...

    mahal ata nitong mga to.

    any matic car (local or not), kahit mga near 2002 model, and within 250k to 350k... di naman masyadong gwapo kasi panggamit lang talaga..
