    High revs lang pag city driving esp. the Montys, Fortuners, Stradas etc. Para matanggal lang ang carbon deposits. Please remember we have one of the dirtiest diesel available. Kaya sila naglabas ng premium diesel like Blaze Diesel and V-Power Diesel.

    And regarding the new Ranger, I think it is bang for the buck kahit 1.1M. Mataas na ang wading height (good for floods), better fuel efficiency take note on the size of the engine from 2.5L to 2.2L now, higher clearance and best of all it's diesel hence more torque. Ang problema lang ng pickups mahirap iparada lalo na sa masisikip na parking lot tulad ng The Link sa tapat ng Landmark. Unless may built in camera na. Di pa rin maganda interiors ng pickup.

    I think that's the Wildtrack some of you were referring to. Iba yung wheels and bumper nun.

    It definitely has it's pros and cons
    Pero I think the pros outnumber the cons because of the environment we drive in
    You dont need to avoid potholes, you just drive thru them :)
    My pickup is 5 , has a 100k kms on it and runs like new
    It is my first pickup , di nako babalik sa kotse ( pero punyeta ganda ng type 86! )
    I have no plans of selling it and plan to use it till ayaw na nya umandar hehe
    The cost of reliable casa maintenace malayo sa cost ng new car

    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.

    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

    mejo cheesy ang dating nung mga borloloy

    bakit manual fafa?
    my strada is manual , and that's my only regret ni hindi pa a/t kinuha ko
    Mas smooth pa ikambio yung elf namin kesa dun sa pickup ko

    ps- sa youtube ko lang nalaman may anti stall pala yung manual strada.akala ko may problema lang yung clutch hehe

    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 :supergrin:

    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 :supergrin:

    kamusta fafi ang after sales service ng ford?

    one interesting vehicle to come out next month is the new forester xt
    250hp , 0-100 in 6.7
    nga lang , it looks even more like a soccer mom's ride

    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)
