    From the choices I agree with Sorento. We had the 1st gen Tucson (2.0li gas) for 7 years. Gamit na gamit din. Daily to Makati with occasional weekend trips to Pangasinan. It just kept going with nothing but basic maintenance. Haven't had any Korean cars since then, but if they were that good 10 years ago things should be even better now.


    Naging pickup platform SUV nga pala yung Trailblazer!

    When I hear the name I still think of this:



    and for modern versions this:

    Thanks everyone, seems majority recommends the Sorento. I got to see the Montero and the Sorento this weekend and I really liked the Sorento. My old man got to test drive it today and he is now sold to it. Looks like we will be getting the Sorento. Just need to have my Bank PO approved for the change of unit. I am also negotiating for a bigger discount, free PMS for the 1st 20km and a lower interest rate.

    I also learned that Sorento is spelled with a single Ďrí, my bad... and that it is not a PPV.

    Thanks again for the helpful advices everyone.

    kung city use at occasional trips sa province, mas ok ang sorento lalo na oldie ang gagamit..

    kung 2018 trailblazer, di mo pa nabibili, luma na agad... unlike sorento bagong bago talaga!

    Yep, the Sorento is a crossover and shares the same platform/engine as the Santa Fe. Better handling and ride comfort over PPVs.

    Pics ha once you got your new Sorento.

    Another question mga masters, so I am haggling with my dealer about freebies and stuff before we finalize the deal for the Sorento. I was asking for free PMS and she said that she could give me up to 20k km but she would need to reduce my discount by 20k php.

    I canít find the actual costing for the Sorentoís first 20km PMSís. I am just thinking it will be surely more than 20k php.

    If you were in my shoes, would you take the free PMS up to 20k km or the 20k php discount?

    I saw an ad for the Sorento which offered 0% interest for 60 months. I think it was either the big cash discount or the 0% interest.

    PMS cost within the first 20k would not be that costly. Just take the 20k discount as it is money saved now.

    i'd take the 20K discount.
    that's real money.
    the free pms is a nebulous amount. sa totoo lang, oil and filter lang naman ang true-must-do's sa pms.

    Yes, it's not that costly if you know how to take out the unnecessary add ons

    sorry for the OT but this reminded me of an old story...

    Colleague buying an Adventure...

    Pare... Full tank voucher or 10 raffle coupons to win another Adv?

    My answer. pare full tank

    His decision. may pang gas ako pare, wala akong pambili ng isa pang Adv.

    Anyway, he's driving a Hilux now
