    I am buying a 2010 hyundai tucson and I have narrowed down my variant choices to two variant theta II GLS AT 1.1m and crdi GL 1.3m.

    The diesel engine would definately be better but the problem is, is it worth it?

    The crdi variant for tucson is only 4WD so fuel consumption is higher, also the maintenance cost is higher, smoke gets dark, most of the time I'll be driving my car only around metro manila for everyday driving.


    What do you guys think?

    also is it true that the crdi engine of hyundai, easily breaks down?

    Diesel. Yes, it's worth it, more torque. I doubt if the CRDi engine would break down easily.

    Never. Toyota yung sirain. Tsaka Isuzu Trooper.

    Yung FC naman ng CRDi 4WD na Tucson e mas matipid parin sa Theta II, pero tama ka na mahal ang maintenance cost. Kahit pa 2WD lang yung CRDi mahal parin kasi 8Li. ang oil..

    Depende sa kailangan mo yan, kung mostly e city driving lang, pwede ka na sa Theta II. Pero don't expect na kasing bilis yun ng CRDi.. Priceless yung power ng CRDi R-eVGT.

    *SG: Naku naman... sinisira ang image ng sarling kotse. At wag mo naman takutin sa maintenance cost! Kung magka-magkano lang ang 8L na motor oil eh... Tapus di naman madalas yun!

    *kenz88: Sang-ayon ako kay SG, DIESEL na. At 1.3M, you already get 4WD and an engine that is more powerful AND gets more mileage than the lower priced variant! As for maintenance, hindi malaking bagay 'yun. Gaano kadalas ka nagchachange-oil? A little extra is spent for that but the fuel savings due to the cheaper fuel and better FC... Hindi naman ganon kamahal ang motor oil eh! In our case, we use Besco 10W30. Eight liters of that costs only P3800.

    4.2K ang 8Li. ng Motul hahaha

    Nakaka-takot kaya maintenance cost ng Tucson. 1K PMS palang aabot na ng Php5,700 kung Motul ang gamit mo. Tapos nasa Php4+++ kapag Semi-Synthetic. Tsaka pihikan sa engine oil yung CRDi R-eVGT

    Buti pa yung Trooper, kahit sirain, sa Petron Rev-X All Terrain masaya na

    Ano ba... minsan minsan lang yan... every few months mo lang igagastos yan... Hindi parin yan makukumpara sa Tucson gas na umiinom ng langis na parang tubig lamang... I'd be better off spending 4200 on motor oil every few months than 4200 on gasoline every few days.

    Walang power talaga? At akala ko dapat maganda na rin dapat ang takbo ng 2.0 gas, considering na yun ang may best hp/L of displacement sa lahat ng 2.0L gas engine sa class niya, tapos may 6 speed transmission pa.

    Ano nga pala ang Petron Rev-X All Terrain na yan? never heard of it before.

    Petron Rev-X All Terrain yung Fully Synthetic diesel motor oil ng Petron. Yan gamit ko since 135K odo.. 155K na ngayon ok na ok parin. Every 15K KMS ang oil change tapos every 7.5K ang oil filter replacement at top-up.

    Para sa akin kulang sa power yung Theta II.. O baka sanay lang ako sa R-eVGT?

    155K na ang takbo mo? Aba... ang dami na ah, sa amin kakaabot palang ng 69000 kms. Maraming mag-aagawan dito kapag ibebenta to! Mahirap na talaga maghanap ng ganoong klaseng sasakyan na may low mileage.

    Dun naman sa Theta II, considering your FLEET of vehicles of which all (tama ba?) are CRDi and two are ReVGT... Definitely hindi kulang sa power ang Theta II! Sobrang sanay ka na talaga sa malakas! Heck, even a Mazda 626's 120hp 2.0L engine is fast enough already, good exhaust note too if I may add.

GAS or DIESEL?
