Mga sis, i am thinking of buying a car (kahit 2nd hand, 1996up), galing sa sarili kong savings. I have savings account pero no checking account. My sister doesn't want to split with me over the payment (pero makikisakay siya ha!) So im on this on my own talaga. Naisip ko, gift ko narin for myself for my 25th...may mga questions ako, if you can please answer them

1. i have scouted a car i want, i can pay in cash, full. Can i get a better discount that way?
2. pag used car but 1st time driver, do i need to get the "highest" insurance policy?
3. what are the things i should take note of when buying a car? like insurance, LTO registration, what else??


Talagang pinagiisipan ko mag aral and mag drive na. There was this instance kasi both my dad and aunt had to be rushed sa emergency room, ni isa samin magkapatid walang marunong, panic talaga ako pano namin sila dadalin.

^ congratulations at galing sa savings ang pambili mo. mahirap gawin yan ha. i bought my first car at 26, 2nd hand din, sariling sikap din.  :)

to answer your questions:

1. san ka ba bibili? discount - depends na on your negotiations with the owner.
2. minimum required is TPL (third party liability) insurance that you need to get when you have the car registered with the LTO every year. it would be good to have comprehensive insurance but the older the vehicle, the higher customer participation is. tsaka baka hindi na din tanggapin ng insurance agencies pag super luma na ng car.
3. do you mean ano dapat ang titingnan mo to know that it is a good buy or ano ang mga responsibilities na kasama kapag may sarili ka nang sasakyan?

^not in full, pero kasi percentage lang ng appraisal nila dun sa car ang ipapa-loan sa iyo. so kailangan mo magdownpayment.

at di ko rin sure kung nagpapa-car-loan ang bank kung hindi sa kanila ang possession ng car, but just to answer your question, banks do not approve 100% of the loan amount (Car or House), talagang kailangan magdownpayment ka.

Ycka29, ang taas ng interest ng 2nd hand car loan ha, as much as 45% sa bpi! Pero mataas appraisal nila. But the car must not be more than 6 month old.

hello mga sis newbie sa thread na ito, mga sis ano ba yung CHATTEL MORTGAGE, yearly fees ba yun? or monthly? lets say if i make 20% dp sa car, yung monthly amortization ko would increase also ba because of insurance and CM?

Thanks!!

^^ chattel mortgage is a one-time charge, part of your initial cash out. Comprehensive insurance is yearly.

If I'm already working for 2 years but I've only been with my current employer for less than a year, will my application be rejected? I'm planning to buy a 2nd hand car (preferably a mitsubishi lancer '95 or below) with a budget of 140k only. 4k monthly lang kasi yung kaya kong MA.

^ i dont think pwede mag car loan for a 95 model. 2nd hand car loans usually dapat medyo bago din pa ang car. Sa bpi 6 months old or less yata. Tapos ang taas ng interest (abot ng 45%!).

Sa ganyang amount na 150k lang, bakapwede mag personal loan ka na lang sa bank, hindi car loan.

We're planning to buy a brand new car. Gusto sana namin ng plate number bearing specific letter and number combination pero hindi vanity plate like ABC123. Posible kaya yun or classified na rin as vanity plate?

wahmjunkie2 sis sa pagkakaalam ko yung last digit lang ang pwede ipapili. so maybe classified nga yan.

ravena sis depende kung promo nila yan. pero usually talaga may interest na yan, kahit nga 1 year pa lang.
