    escape is the best bet today. low acquisition cost, ang dami na parts sa banawe now, what more 4 or 5 yrs from now pag ala na wararanty, can match all the features of almost every top of the line models of other compact suvs.

    besides, don't buy an SUV bec. it looks good or its newer. SUVs are purchased for 10 yrs use. why i arrived at this conclusion, my 99 crv is 11 yrs. old with 90Tkm, may minor pagawain like bushings, aircon cleaning and lubrications. tingen ko kaya pa ng crv ko ng 5-8 yrs pa heheh

    ganyan katibay ang suv pag inaalagaan mo. the best way para maalagan get 2 talaga. so if you buy now, buy another suv in 5 years. pag used alternately na yan baka nga hindi ka na mag-tsikot forum ehhhhheheh
    Good point. For the past years, would say I average between 100-120 km per week, which I guess isn't that high. The reason I've been thinking of going SUV is because of the road conditions here in Manila, not to mention, medyo bahain yung inuuwian namin sa Cavite and I'm there every other weekend.

    Also since I plan to be a family man soon, mas ok na compromise na yung compact SUV, cause I dont really want to drive around a large SUV or van.

    I guess one other thing I forgot to mention is safety. Would anyone know what's standard in CR-V and Tucson in terms of safety features. Medyo confusing yung site. I know I should just visit the showroom and ask, pero ayoko muna ma tempt kasi alam kung mga May pako makakabili, hehe.

    in terms of safety mas complete safety features ng crv. hyundai-kia likes to offer stripped down versions. d ko nga alam kumbakit ganun sila, walang passenger airbag, walang ebd to make it sound like they offer cheaper vehicles.
    if indeed these additional safety feature cost hundreds of grand more, then why can escape, x-trail, tribute offer the same safety features at no extra cost.

    problem with hyundai-kia 's marketing is they want to get to the top fast. as they say, kung gano ka bumilis umakyat .... gusto nila maging honda/toyota.

    CRV is 1.3M kasi nga it's the 3rd gen na. may pangalan na eh and i still think it's overpriced, eh wala tayo magagawa, they're banking on the honda crv name

    Resale value is not just mere perception it is dictated by supply and demand. Honda's are still more reliable compared to Hyundai's. Aside from the Sta. Fe and Tucson and probably the Starex, there are no other Hyundais that can compete with Japanese cars like the Civic, Altis, Vios, City, Mazda 3 and Mazda 2. Its too early to say that the Japanese are the "has-been". Maybe Hyundai has indeed improved compared to where they were before but still not the same quality as the Japanese cars. Yes Tucson is cheaper but there are compromises that's why they are cheaper (For example, Tucson only has a 4 Speed Automatic, the CR-V has 5, Tucson only has Airbags on the Driver side and the passenger side only with the premium diesel). Besides, one of the reasons why the Tucson is being bought is the fact that it is cheap. Price it in the same range as CR-V's and Rav 4's and see which one people will buy. =)

    Nope the Tucson has a SIX SPEED AUTOMATIC, 1 more than the CR-V... Its the Japanese who continue to use old 4 speed automatics like Mitsubishi and Toyota...

    Just checked, for pre-selling, the 5 seater Sorento is 1.2M for the gas version and 1.3M for the CRDi.

    If you take care of your diesel engine I don't think you'll get injector/fuel problems kaagad naman. Unless there's already something wrong with it to start with (like in the case of some Toyotas). Napansin ko kasi usually the underpowered diesels and/or the ones that have the accelerator floored a lot are the ones that get bad nozzle tips/injectors prematurely. If you keep revs at a reasonable level most of the time and are religious with your maintenance, you will enjoy the savings that diesels can give.

    I know a lot of people who rarely use their CRV's with the FC they get and the price of gas today. They are mostly relegated to weekend use.
