this is correct jaejae... pero have u read about aris ilagan's article in November; about car buyers in GERMANY LOSING STEAM for porches, audis, and the likes. this is due to high fuel cost, effective mass transport , and congestive traffic. GONE are the days when cars are status symbol. TRUE ENOUGH PARANG WE HAVE REACHED THAT POINT when buying a car now is more of a need rather than a want. in other words in aris' view CARS NOW ARE MORE OF AN APPLIANCE RATHER Than THE SYMBOL that signifies the owner.
