    Well that was a reply to your original argument of reverse cams as a factor in buying new cars.

    But if we're talking about whole package as you mentioned like aftersales service, support and parts... we have come a long way since the 80's/90's, and there are several notable companies that offer that now... I agree, the reverse cam and the other passive safety features may look like desserts but if your chosen car/company gives you that on top of the "whole package" then I think you get a better deal.

What good is a car with a reverse cam if the aftersales service and the likes are poorly addressed down the service life of the said car? but this is me personally speaking..

    and since the model was still new at that time, "no one outside the casa had any repair parts for it"...
    i still have that failed alternator in my bodega. perhaps if i bring it out now, someone can repair it, and i can sell it for the price of a nice dinner with the family....
    My old 2005 Fortís alternator died prematurely too when it was only 4 years old. Had to buy a new one in banawe at 12k iirc. Mukhang pangit quality ng alternator supplier back then for the whole IMV platform

    but, ten years later today, the replacement alternator is still going fine.
    i think, the thailand-sourced alternators , well some of them anyway, were of inferior build quality. and they had immediately fixed the problem afterward. but not soon enough for folks like unfortunate us.

    Kahit baduy yung MU-X na may ESC sticker sa likod, okay lang nu.

    Sobrang importante din ng passive safety features like those, lalo na kapag SUV.

    Can't really believe na the V variant is already totl for the 4x2.

    Masyado kase bilib sa Toyota badge kaya na overlook mga ganyang bagay.. oh well pera nyo naman yan haha.

    Classic example yung tito ko solid Toyota fan nabulag na. He got the V variant just last month.

    Previous car was 4x2 G na 1st gen Fortuner (last facelift).

    Ilang beses na siya tinirik nun tapos daming premature defects like failed alternator..

    Buti pa sa US magiging mandated na ang reverse camera as of next year..
    Kahit din naman sa 2010 below na isuzu altera may defect mga scv supply pump nila dati bigla na lang namamatay makina while driving, pero na correct na nila 2010 model up at sa mga mux, yung vibration and ingay lang ng engine ang hindi pa yata na solve sa mux, under power din yung 3.0 ng mux...

    Pag sinabi po bang under power, what does it exactly mean? Dapat ba parang sports car na sumisibat sa arangkada?
