    What the dealer would probably do is, ask the insurer for re-consideration. It will depend on the insurer if they will consider it for ex gratia(they will most likely). Even if you have AON, if the policy has exclusions like ash fall , then your dealer will have to ask the insurer. But, again they will most likely re-consider it.

    Very informative. Question though is I got the unit new and its damaged by ash fall. Will they cover events before effective date of insurance?

    It has to be on the inception date, or the day you paid for the policy. You can ask the claims adjuster and they'd probably consider it.

    The Geely Coolray is very tempting. Has all the bells & whistles of a premium SUV at just 1.1M. Electronic seat adjustment, cruise control, electronic parking break, TPMS, paddle shifters, Active parking assist, 360 degree view, multiple sensors, remote start engine, moonroof. Unfortunately no Apple Car Play.

    The Shelby Supersnake has arrived on Philippine soil. It will only be sold by Autohub, the official local distributor of Shelby American. The price I was told is PHP12.3 M. Ouch.

    I think these dealerships were having trouble before the pandemic, the lockdown just straight up killed them.

    Covid19 doesn't just kill people, it's killing all sorts of businesses too.



    5 car dealership outlets shutting down

    Yuchengco is closing down Honda Fairview, Honda Marikina, Honda Marco Highway, Honda Kalookan and Isuzu Greenhills

    Hmmm... they look nice, I'll give them that. But I wouldn't buy them even if they gave me a 50% discount.

    For basic utility, Geely has a great value proposition as long as you don't care about resale and anticipate that anything you saved versus a similarly specced competition might be eaten up by higher maintenance cost (a certain %). It's sold out and the wait list is 1 month long not bad.

    As with all new products, only time will tell. I'd like to think China cars' perception is the same as South Korean cars of early 2000s. They were even priced below their Japanese counterparts then. Geely's advantage is that they have Volvo's safety expertise in their back pocket. The price screams there must be cost cutting somewhere else. Labor's one, Chinese car market scale, the dealer might also be working on razor thin margins to compensate for lack of brand awareness.

    It's nice to see a car in this class punch above its weight. My friend went with this over similarly priced Hondas or Toyotas.

    Hmm. Prices of luxury cars are going down. The Audi Q8 which was priced at almost PHP9M is now selling at PHP 7.9M. The Volvo XC60 Plug in Hybrid is now selling at PHP4.8M from PHP5.7M.
