is Php 350,000 annual repair & maintenance expense for a Trooper 2003 4x2 reasonable or even possible??

Asked by Aug 26, 2014 at 01:57 AM about the Isuzu Trooper

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Please I need insight.  I'm a lady who has just started having exposure on company car repairs as I have recently been assigned by my father to monitor repair and maintenance expense.  
I have visited 4 different repair companies in our area and all have said that a 350,000 annual repair and maintenance expense is way too much.  It travels 1000km or less per week at the most on several occasions (cemented roads).
This is possibly the 3rd year that the expense has not gone below 350k.

Please I badly need opinion

That is very high. I suggest that for less than that you buy a new car. The Ford Everest or Kia Sportage comes to mind as a far more reliable and lower cost vehicles to own and maintain.1000 Km a week is a lot so change the oil every 6000Km. That will preserve the engine.

Thanks BoholMark.... Would you know or at least have an estimate on the annual maintenance/repair cost of a Trooper used as a company car (normal conditions & long distance travel) Appreciate your reply

Can't say I know exactly. A lot depends on where you live and how the Trooper is driven. Regular oil changes are a given. Brakes and tires are to. Where do you live? Manila? Cebu City? Because stop and go driving is harder on a vehicle then suburban driving. Also is the same person driving it or are there multiple drivers? For an estimate add up the cost of 10 oil changes. A set of tires. And 25000 P for a reasonable yearly mantance cost.

Just as a point of reference. I had the head gasket replaced on my Kia Sportage for only 3000P plus the cost of parts.
