We have to think twice before buying an imported car because most of the cheap imported cars in car exchanges are the right-hand drive cars. And since we are left-hand drive here so the imported car needed to be converted. Our mechanic neighbor said that we might be spending more not just for the conversion but for the intermittent problem that the car might develop in time. My wife's sister did not heed that advice and proceeded in buying a Toyota Previa that was converted into left-hand drive. It breaks down every now and then. When their mechanic surrendered with the repairs, they sold that car (it's actually a wagon type) for just 20% of the cost.
