  1. Fafas,
    My boss is looking for a new mpv/suv/van that would seat 5-6 people comfortably
    His choices are yung fortuner, allterra,montero,everest or starex
    Major concerns are maintenance, fuel economy , reliablity ( the guy is cheap ! wag nyo ko isumbong ). Looks not as important , though resale value is
    Any advice is greatly appreciated
     

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
  2. id go for innova.

    medyo matagtag fortuner which is my second choice.

    Toyota boy na kasi ako though i bought my wife a crv since she likes it.
     

  3. Fortuner is the looks only but I dont like it as matagtag... I think should consider a Montero or what about an Odyssey?
     
  4. I keep on hearing matgtag nga daw fortuner, pero pogi nga
    Montero may lalabas daw na bago 2010 model mga 3rd week of december
    everest? hows ford service?
    Allterra?

    Naconsider na rin innova and starex , kaso SUV kailangan pang probinsya kasi

  5. There are some people that say the supply pump of the Innova (diesel) has had issues because of the supposedly dirty diesel that is being supplied in the country. Some choose the Avanza because of its good fuel economy.

    I, personally would choose the Isuzu Crosswind. The 4JA1 engine has a very good track record and very good on fuel.
     
  6. I think he need something bigger than a crosswind
    Sakin yata bagay ang crosswind , allergic ako sa gas station :)

    Went to tsikot , and a lot are divided between the pro fortuner and the pro montero crowd
    Kaso cant make out if they are just fanatics of the car they own, kasi maiinit agad mga ulo if someone criticizes their ride

    Pogi ng bagong everest , but mababa daw resale
     
  7. Fortuner matagtag talaga this my father in law retirement gift sa sarili nya ang now he is complaining na masakit masakit na yung katawan nya sa kaka drive. But some say na palitan ng old man emu na shocks ay aayos na yung ride.
     

  8. Fafa , what model yung fortuner nya?
     
  9. Your friend might want to include Hyundai Santa Fe in the selection.
    Used to be 'junk kind' but in just a few short years has become a brand to reckon. My mother-in-law is driving one and has yet to hear any grumbling.

    Look here for specs

    They rake-in some serious $$$ during the 'cash for clunkers' program a few months back. Also, their first salvo into the luxury sedan is quite impressive. I had to eyeball their Genesis and I can say, a few more tweaks in the coming years and I bet it will make Lexus, Infiniti and other European cars lose some market.

    'nga lang, hindi pa maganda resale value.
     
  10. fafa, pogi montero. although doubtful ako sa power ng 4x2 variant 2.5L CRDI.

    current delivery times nasa 3-4months daw unless financing ka or malakas sa dealer.

    Montero Sport Php 1.33 million
    Toyota Fortuner Php 1.448 million
    Isuzu Alterra Php 1.585 million
    Hyundai Santa Fe Php 1.528 million
    Ford Everest Php 1.320 million

    alam mo naman na die-hard isuzu fan ako when it comes to diesel fed vehicles. we have 5 isuzu vehicles sa family namin! LOL!
     
  11. 2008 yung 4x2 na diesel automatic
     
  12. Medyo OT lang..is it really true na maglalabas ng 2010 model na Montero sport soon??? I'm planning to get the '09 4x4 GLS M/T variant this month sana

  13. Master A, Isuzu xwind Sportivo pinaka mura na SUV/AUV na roomy , sa MPV naman Innova 7-8 seater , 2.0 to 2.5 models like J, E, G, V.

    Altera is masikip but OK na for 5-6 people na cute like me, it's basically a shortened and closed DMAX.

    Im also seaching for a new car try to check this site baka makatulong din sa boss mo.

    fortuner for me porma and reliable though matagtag nga talaga some said baka naimprove na sa 2009 model nila bro.
     
  16. ang gwapo nung Genesis , akala ko it was new bmw na 2 door pag naka side view
     

  17. fafa , lowest ng 09 everest ngayon is 1.410M na may dealers sa mall kanina
    I got to drive my cousing 2.5 na strada , ok naman humatak
    Ayoko na nung 3.2 engine , ang mahal ng maintenance
     
  18. My old mistu ahente wala pa daw word about a new model
    Pero I talked to another SA different location may dadating daw 3rd week of december, at kumukuha na sila ng reservations at may new price na, higher by 20t
    My guess is binago lang yung grill at mags
     
  19. ay oo nga pala naka fortuner kayo ni arnold
    Mura ba talaga maintenance nyan pards?
     
  20. kia sorrento, nice suspension, sabi ng iba better ride than the santa fe :)
