anybody tried pertua metal additives?hindi siya kagaya ng oil additives na pinapalapot ang oi,,ung pertua bonds sa metal parts ng makina,so kahit ag change oil kayo nakakapit pa din siya sa engine parts,2 x a year lang ako maglagay ng pertua,tested ko na din sa nissan pick up ko before a sa race car.sulit siya for the price na 300-400 petot depende sa auto supply.

Those still scouting for a new pick-up this year, another good choice.

TRUE!!! I test drove the wildtrak on a trail GANDA din!!! I am sold with the 2.2 manual. I want to get rid of the step bar and burloloy on the side of the bed - kung ako lang I would sell those before it leaves the dealer and use the cash to get some other functional items

medyo old school ako - I would rather have a manual for off roading and maintenance is easier pag luma na.

I was impressed sa 2.2 engine niya and features ng wildtrak - problema nagiging idiot's 4x4 sa dami ng assist assist chuva

lets face it - it is a pick up made for utility work. For me the ride was good. Meron lang mga trade offs if you want a capable off road vehicle that can carry heavy stuff too.

But after saying that the ride was pretty good. PLUS I was hitting 80-100kph on winding roads - of course with traction control AND we were going 60-70kph on 5th gear on low 4 on ROUGH roads

Yan ang hindi ko lang alam - some say ok some say mahal. PMS is around 8-9k for every 10k kms.

I think after sales depends na on the dealers - the one in libis is ok daw.

from what I researched - strada is still a bit better BUT (this is from the guy who let me do the test drive on a trail and does test drives of different off roaders too) the softer ride translates to harsher off road capabilities too.

Oh yeah another consideration: under chassis (cv joints etc etc) of the ranger is a lot beefier than the rest of the pick ups. (as told to me)

My officemate's Everest runs the maintenance cost at that range. Kahit naman Monty eh ganun din yata rinig ko sa casa.

In terms of casa, mixed bag yung Ford Global and Alabang.

Yup I think that should be average. In fact my carnival goes around 4,800 every 5k PMs plus it is such a fuel guzzler :(

Yung 8k na pms siguro pag bago yung sasakyan or mineral oil ang gamit
oil sa diesel engines already cost 5k kung synthetic and 2k plus pag mineral
oil pa lang , di pa kasama palit ng ibang parts and labor
Kung every 10t kms ( synthetic ), the cost would be 12k
Kung every 5t kms , you'd pay about 5k

you can but you are running the risk of wearing out the rest due to heavier load. Spring is usually associated with load capacity and shocks is associated with ride quality. You can choose a softer set of shocks.

I did that before in our 80's Mazda pick, I removed 2 of them. Ride quality improved a lot but maximum load carrying capacity was greatly reduced. It was fine with us since 95% of the time we don't load it with stuff more than 50kg.
