My 1st car was a 2nd hand car that i got when i was 26. 220k lang and loan sa office so ang baba ng MA. I had just learned how to drive then so tama lang i got a used car kasi mga 4 na beses ako nabangga. Haha. I sold it a year later and got a 2003 honda city 1.3s.
Now i have a 2009 honda city 1.3s. MA is about 13k. First 3 years of registration kasama na when i bought the car so next year pa akO start magbayad. Registration is about 2k or 3k yata.
Insurance premium is about 15k per year.
I live in better living and work at mckinley hill. I spend for toll 44 one way, a full tank of gas lasts me 2 to 2.5 weeks including weekend use. It helps that i work from 12nn-9pm so iwas rush hour traffic ako.
Maintenance is every 10k km. Regular maintenance is about 4k. Pinakamahal ang 80k km check up. For reference with my old car, 40k km was about 12k.
For reference also, my husband's 2008 civic 1.8s, MA is about 18k, a full tank lasts 1.5-2weeks. Mckinley hill din siya.
Buti cheap lang parking namin compared to makati cbd, 50/day.
Fuel efficiency depends on a lot if things.
- driving style - kung mabigat paa mo sa gas, kung bigla ka magarangkada, etc
- traffic - the most nagastos speed is 0 kph kasi you use gas but you dont get anywhere
- car condition - regular tune up dapat
- tire pressure - pag hindi tama may effect din sa fuel consumption
And i try not to go beyond 2k rpm and 80kph.
