this forum has helped me a great deal in discussing the merits of NT$700K SUVs in Taiwan, notebly the Escape and CR-V.
being aware that the year 2005 models will hit the market in October (hope this is correct?!!?!!!?) I’m interested in picking up a temporary car for a few months, budget of NT$200-300K. I will need to drive the car from Taipei to Hsinchu once a week (during Friday’s rush hour) and then from home to work, 20 minutes each way, daily.
WHERE TO GET A USED CAR AT A GOOD PRICE?
I have tried:
1- car dealers – very stiff prices
2- the 2nd hand car magazines sold at 7-11, etc.
which are basically dealers again
3- auctions on yahoo.com.tw and ebay.com.tw,
lots of dealers, but I was specifically looking at used
CR-Vs at the time and those were again, stiff
4- free for all car auctions held at all-day saturday events.
this was most confusing, as the audience of 400-500 people appeared to be used car dealers, but the prices for which the cars were sold, again, I felt were high. (I can provide the contact details for these auctions if anyone wants.
so again, should I slog back into the auction websites and the auction events? are those my best bets?
oh yea, I also tried, www.eauto.com.tw
I can read the Chinese so it’s no problem to search the used car listings…just seems like some of the cars have been posted for months…and not available…is this the best place?
