    Default ex-taxi...worth buying?


    hi guys...

    naa koy plano buy/utang anang mga ex-taxi sa KEN puhon...

    worth it ba sa 60k?


    advantage:
    - well taken cared of ang KEN...including mga driver...pinangga sa hapon...
    - toyota lovelife unit...murag salig ko sa parts...
    - you choose your preferred color when you buy...


    disadvantage:
    - ex-taxi...expected mileage 200,000+kms minimum tingali...
    - battered wife na kaayo makina kay 24/7 ang dagan...


    need your inputs, istoryans...

    opinion lang nako ni kay wala pako ka suway... pero kung ako, murag dili tingali ko kay basin labaw pas 60k in the next few months/years akong magasto ig paayo sa mga guba2x... though toyota, cheap to maintain, murag dili gihapon nako ma dawat nga ex-borekat (laspag na kaayo ba)...

    para pud nako kung ibase nato sa scientific side on automotive wear and tear duration (unit work hours) we expect taxi`s are driven almost 24 hours a day 365 days a year, so medyo mal2x na gyud ang unit maski i assume pa nato nga ma idle ra ang auto, unless siguro kung ang mupalit naay kaugalingong auto shop murag OK ra kay unay ra tanan from tip to toe sa pag reconditon sa unit, pero kung personal ra nya ang unit gikan ug taxi murag ubay2x gyud ug gastu-an ang ex-taxi nga unit, kung sa kandila pa hapit na ma-upos, from suspension wear, chassis steel wear, engine wear, etc. so kung ma timing na diha na maupos diha na nimo ang unit aw gasto na sad....for me it`s not worth it TS....

    Kung ibase pud nato sa ubang countries, taxi units didto inig abot ug 3 years deretso gyud na sa recycling/remelting plant kay di na na safe sakyan sa publiko, (which is true kung atong i base sa component wear and tear) in-ana kataas ilang standards....

    Ang mismo tag-iya sa KEN kahibalo ana hapon gud na, gisakyan lang na niya atong pagka inosente (filipinos) para pud maka bawi siya gamay sa iyang na invest....mao na para nako murag panglalamang gihapon iyang gibuhat...but he cannot fool me....

    Things you should look out when buying a post taxi unit...

    1. Body condition including door hinges and clearances (wala ka.agi ug dasmag ug naa man gani dapat slight lang...kanang wala na.igo ang suspension system ug ang frame)..

    2. Engine... Although 2e engines are well known to be durable.. And parts are not a problem... Assume jud na for overhaul na siya cguro 10 to 15k for general engine overhaul dala na surfacing and use only genuine parts...

    3. Suspension system.. Para walay labad IPA.overhaul sad ug apil..tanan.. Mas maau man gud nang intero ang trabaho kay ang labor kas.a ra... Shocks ani kay 2.5 to 4k ang per piece.. So mura diri ka madak.an

    I used to own a 96 corolla ex.taxi... With same 2e engine... 8k ra gasto overhaul though general pero gipangunayan man gud to... Ang yes replaced all shock absorbers pero Dili dungan.. Ginaservice mani ug studyante up to now still dependable jud sya..

    Love life if wala ko ma sayop kay last na japan made or assembled unit kay Thailand man ang vios... Diri sa pinas...

    Pero kung wala kay alamag ug ayo ug sakyanan... Ug Dili ka mo sunod sa maintenance jud.. Then gasto kaau ni nga pa.agiha..

    But kung naa kay kaila na tarong nga mechanic.. Then maka save jud ka ug dako...
