Cars sold in the Philippine online classified ads website AyosDito may not meet safety standards because the sellers are private owners who may sell their cars on an "as is" basis. Furthermore, AyosDito's successor, OLX, assumes no responsibility for the quality of the items sold on its site.
OLX asserts that it remains the buyer's responsibility to do a quality check by taking the vehicle on a test drive. The buyer should not proceed with the purchase should he feel uncomfortable. That means the onus is on the buyer to make sure that the vehicle meets safety standards.
A Tagalog phrase that means "Okay here," AyosDito was an online classified-ads website for Filipinos to buy and sell online. It merged with OLX in early 2015. As OLX, it offers free postings for items such as cars and motorcycles, computers, electronic gadgets, cellphones and food. It also has a section for sports and hobbies, real estate, rental properties, jobs and travel.
