    @peach17 mas sigurado if sa carsales and yung dealer ang bilhan mo. secondhand din binili namin medyo bago nga lang, 2010. ayaw din naman namin i.risk ang safety kasi may baby kami na sakay.

    kakapasa ko pa lang ng theory master @lock_code2004.
    pwede ko na magamit ang license ko for 1 year.
    Kaya ako napadpad dito sa thread... nagtatanong kung ok ba sa gumtree bumili ng car.

    sabi ni @JCSantos sa carsales na lang daw mas maganda daw dun.

    D ko pa kasi iaavvail yung car salary packaging sa work ko.
    Kasi buy muna ng 2nd hand na car para pampractice
    pag bago agad, baka magasgasan...

    Ikaw master ano binili mong car?

    @Nadine - uy welcome back dok...at melby kana pala now..

    kamusta na kayo master @lock_code2004 and doc @Nadine!
    Ang tagal na since last kong na type ang nyo dito! hahahaha


    miss you guys.... :)

    @lock_code2004, Perth ka pa din? :)

    Wui @Peach, long time no hear ah!! Parang kelan lang ano? Ako din, it's been a year na since bumili kotse. Although hindi ako nag carsales.com.au, eto daw ang reputable site for second-hand cars eh. If may mahihila ka para mag test drive ka muna para maramdaman mo yung iba't ibang car, what suits you and will work within your budget. May mga mababait na Pinoy na sinamahan ako mag test drive ng iba't ibang kotse. Dahil wala naman ako alam much about cars at di makapag decide, naikot ko yata lahat. :D

    Btw, ba't ayaw mo avail salary packaging? It's pre-tax you know. Malaki ang savings. And you can salary package pati insurance, rego, fuel, servicing, etc. Pwede mag salary package kahit 2nd-hand car. Depends on the terms of your novated lease with your company but titingnan yata nila ilang kms natakbo ng car and how old if second-hand.

    Hi guys, makikisali na rin ako sa thread na to as I'm about to purchase my very first vehicle here in AU. Hanggang ngayon di pa rin ako makapagdecide kung new or used car ang bibilhin. Gusto ko sana brand new na kasi wala naman ako alam pagdating sa mga sasakyan kaso andami nagddiscourage sakin na bumili ng bago since mabilis lang naman daw bumagsak ang presyo ng mga sasakyan. Gustong gusto ko sana yung mazda cx5, kaso wala pa 2nd hand nun. If ever naman bibili ng used car, gusto ko ung nissan xtrail.

    Meron din pala novated lease sa company namin kaso parang andaming hidden charges nun. Sinubukan kong magpaquote dun sa NLC na connected sa company namin at naapproved kaagad ung financing. Ang kulit ng agent, sabi ko di pa naman ako bibili agad, pero inasikaso na kaagad nya application ko. Hahaha...

    @clickbuddy2009 initial plan din namin is a brand new car since priority namin ang safety bec. of the baby and hindi kami marunong sa car and wala kaming kakilalang mechanics pero we end up buying a used car. yun nga after a few years bagsak ng half yung price ng new cars so sayang din naman. amin lang para makasiguro na in good condition ang nabili namin eh dun kami kumuha sa malaking dealer talaga and bagong model kinuha namin, 2010 outlander. at hindi naman kami nagsisi sa decision namin, so far so good, hindi pa talaga kami nagkaproblema dun and it indeed is in a very good condition according to our friends na din na mahilig sa kotse. one more thing is mabuti hindi kami nag brandnew kasi dito lang naglearn magdrive si hubby, ayon puro gasgas sa pagpark sa garage. hahahaha....

    they say if you would travel 10k km or more a year novated lease is a good option but if not , then its not worth it :)

    they will rip you off with things like car service / insurance and petrol

    ang magandang side lang e inde ka mag lalabas ng malaking pera sa una ... at pwedeng every 5 years bago ang sasakyan mo :)

    kung wala ka namang alam sa sasakyan pwede mo ipacheck sa mekaniko bago ka bumili or pag meron ka na maghanap ka lang ng reliable na mekaniko at kongting basa basa sa internet e mabubuhay ka katulad ko .... ako after 5 years of using an old camry staka ako bumili ng bnew :)

    Hahaha.. yun nga rin ang iniisip ko eh, baka mapuno lang ng gasgas ang bagong sasakyan. Nasa dulo pa naman ng basement parking ung car bay ko kaya medyo mahirap magpark dun.

    How much pala ung drive away cost ng nakuha nyong outlander? Meron akong nakikitang mga below $20k na xtrail 2010-2013 model. Tsaka less than 100k pa ang mileage.

    kung wala ka namang alam sa sasakyan pwede mo ipacheck sa mekaniko bago ka bumili or pag meron ka na maghanap ka lang ng reliable na mekaniko at kongting basa basa sa internet e mabubuhay ka katulad ko .... ako after 5 years of using an old camry staka ako bumili ng bnew :)
    Ito nga rin ang pangit sa novated lease, nagbabayad ka ng madami para sa mga services na hindi mo naman cgurado kung mamaximise mo. Eh pano kung katulad ko na nakatira sa city at ilang tumbling lang ang layo from house to office, sayang ng ibabayad ko sa petrol at car services kung hindi masulit.

    I guess, used car na nga lang muna cguro. Kelangan lang talaga magpasama sa kakilalang marunong sa sasakyan.

    Hahaha.. yun nga rin ang iniisip ko eh, baka mapuno lang ng gasgas ang bagong sasakyan. Nasa dulo pa naman ng basement parking ung car bay ko kaya medyo mahirap magpark dun.

    How much pala ung drive away cost ng nakuha nyong outlander? Meron akong nakikitang mga below $20k na xtrail 2010-2013 model. Tsaka less than 100k pa ang mileage.

    nasa 10k - 15k yung bili namin dun. so kung titignan mo sobrang laki ng dini-depreciate nya within 4 years, more than 50% cya. gusto ko din yung xtrail dati, pero na.inlove daw cya sa outlander so yun na talaga mga tinignan nya sa carsales.

    Nagbayad ba kayo ng DP? Magkano ang monthly payment nyo?

    Ang laki nga ng binababa ng presyo, tsaka mas praktikal nga naman na bumili na muna ng used car sa simula. Kapag expert na sa road rules dito at stable na rin ang finances, then yun na cguro ang time para kumuha ng pinapangarap na bagong sasakyan.

    mag DP na sana kami kaso sinabi nung stuff na kinausap namin re sa loan na liit lng daw ng difference kung hindi kami mag DP so hindi na kami pina DP. 300+ ang monthly namin and 100+ for our insurance. medyo mahal insurance namin nrma kasi. basta less 500 binabayaran namin monthly.

    nasa 10k - 15k yung bili namin dun. so kung titignan mo sobrang laki ng dini-depreciate nya within 4 years, more than 50% cya. gusto ko din yung xtrail dati, pero na.inlove daw cya sa outlander so yun na talaga mga tinignan nya sa carsales.
    kung may budget na around 14-16k, better pa rin ba ang mga 2nd hand like yun nabili mo na 2010 outlander than buying a brand new na hatchback? kase i've seen prices ng HB (e.g. hyundai i20, suzuki, and other similar class) around 14-16k bnew na.

    Closed pala mga car dealers pag Saturday. We went to Vic Park to check some of the vehicles. Ang ganda rin pala ng Outlander, ngayon gulong gulo na tuloy ako kung xtrail or outlander. Baka kalabasan nito magsedan na lang ako. Nyayyy...

    I also checked secured car loans sa mga banks, mas pinakamababa ata ang interest ng commbank (7.99%). May mas mababang deal pa bang makukuha if directly sa car dealer na kumuha ng car finance?

    Gusto ko lang ishare ung experience ko sa pakikipagtransact sa mismong dealer ng Nissan. I went to checked for the car I wanted to buy and the salesman is quite nice and not pushy or ipagsiksikan ung mga nirrecommend na models. I was able to negotiate the price to lower down to atleast $3k of the asking price (well, I believed yung mga nakalagay na price dun sa papel na nakaattached sa vehicle ay much higher than their actual asking price kaya kunwari nagbibigay sila ng discount). So ok na, I'm quite satisfied sa pricing and it is within our budget. And then the salesman asked me to follow him inside so he can process the appilcation and have it signed by his superior. And then I was sent over to another person para naman daw sa explanation ng warranty and other things. Dito na nagsimula yung malaking pagkakamali ko. Since susunga sunga ako pagdating sa sasakyan, ok ako ng ok sa mga inooffer na add ons. Iniisip ko kc parang practical nga naman, offeran ako ng extended warranty, tinted windows, premium protection for interior and exterior of vehicles....for every add ons na inooffer sakin, I always ask the lady of the price that we're looking at. And she would say well, its only about $8-10 more in your monthly repayment. And after the summary, she said so you will only add approx. around $30 a month. So sa isip ko, not bad na and it wont hurt my pocket any further. At tinanong ko pa pala na hindi un dapat ipapatong sa principal amount ng car ko kc nga magiinterest pa yun. And the girl replied, well we can work it out in your financial application. I was really stupid that day and parang nablangko na lang isip ko. So eto na, pagbalik ng babae, dala na nya yung print out ng total cost, at boom! It's way way higher than what I expected. Since wala nga ako alam sa mga transaction na ganun, at ang nasa isip ko that time ay, for approval pa lang naman, ayun pumirma ako.

    Yung interest rate pala ng loan ay di rin nila maibigay sakin kasi daw for approval pa yun at dpende pa raw sa financier. And since wla pa raw ako credit history, baka raw umabot ng 11%. So I said it's way higher than with the bank. Gagawan daw nila ng paraan na mapababa and the lady kept on asking me about the monthly repayment na kaya ko. Ang malaking pagkakamali ko talaga ay pumirma ako sa "Contract to Purchase form."

    When I left the store, I was a bit shocked and realized I dont need all those add ons. Since I signed the "Contract to Purchase form," pwede ko pa kaya ipacancel yung mga add ons? By next week pa daw malalaman ung approval ng financing ko. Nagdeposit din pala ako ng $1k, wala naman akong intention to cancel everything as I'm happy with the vehicle itself. Yung mga add ons lang talaga, and probably yung financing nila. I'm planning to head straight to the bank instead of availing thei in-house financing.
