Buy a car and start a new life with your beloved!

After making the most important decision in your life - saying “yes” to him/her and have your own family, there are many things you both need to set plan for, especially major expenses. If it is not for a house, then it should be for a car. For many young Filipino couples, owning a car is one of the very first steps to start a new life.

However, car buying is never a simple process. This, in contrast, requires serious consideration and in-depth research for months. With this in mind, Philkotse.com would like to help Pinoy newly-weds who are also in the process of looking for a vehicle for their new home by gathering 5 best cars for young couples.
