I recently went to Subic and saw a 2nd hand LPG-powered Ford E-150 being sold there for a reasonable price well within P1.7m.
I inspected the vehicle and did not notice any defects, though I admit I did not a bring along a mechanic with me.
I was able to request a quick test-drive, and I found it to be more comfortable than the local MPVs/vans being sold here.
Probably the most comfortable van I have ever driven.
No idea about the mileage, since it has been converted to LPG as I formerly mentioned.
Should I go ahead and buy the unit? (I'll bring a mechanic with me the next time around, of course)
Or should I just settle with a brand new van/MPV?
