    well, tulad nga naman sa obsess na gf/wife lahat na lang nihahalintulad kahit malayo sa katotohanan... hehe...

    To Mini, kelan mo target na ma iipon ang cash pang monte?
    Baka kasi ma aabotan ka naman ng bagong issue ng monte at magbabago pa isip mo...

    BTT: sir maganda din naman talaga hitsura ni fort yung lack of features tapos ang taas ng price lang yung nakaka dismaya... siguro for first car buyer pwede pa ma justify kasi yung maintenance, service and parts are the best but im not saying nissan is not. Although bago pa si terra based naman siya kay navarra which is nakaka stock na yung mga tindahan for consumable parts maliban na lang siguro sa mga slow moving parts... goodluck!

    if you have good experience with the brand, it's not easy to hie over to the competition.

    basic rule of sales.
    if you want them to cross the street over to you, it ain't gonna be because your car is as good as theirs. you have to offer something significantly more.

    Inaantay ko lang bago facelift kasi boxy front na ang Montero kaya pinapaubos ko na stocks ng Mitsu by telling alll my friends and all fo you na spbrang mura na ang current Montero

    nakikita ko kasi future eh

    The upcoming Everest and Ranger patterned to the Bronco
    The new Boxy Jimny
    The sleek linear lines of the Palisade and the Telluride
    And of ocurse, thats why the Mux is becoming poppular again now coz of its boxy utilitarian look
    The alphard and the upcoming hiace

    Why do you think bigla nagbago ang direction ng Hyundai and corrected the Santa fe eith the Palisade, kasi meron talaga budget ang Hyundai to determine the future look having its presence both in Europe and US

    So hayun, yun ang mahirap para lalo naging dated ang Terra

    my family have owned different brands of Japanese cars over the years as I grew up in an autoshop. Regardless of how well they are engineered and used for their intended purpose, parts will breakdown overtime and of course you have to change them. We ended up keeping the yota's as they still have parts available even after more than a decade. Heck even the 40 series LC's still have parts around and with toyota you can interchange parts from different models as most of them have standard mounting. I cant say the same with other Jap brands, BUT, if money is NOT an issue, you can always buy the brand you want at your heart's content and change them after 3-5 years of use.... A car is very expensive and a losing investment so, IMHO, choose what you really need with the first 5-10 years.....

    Very well said. I agree that if money is not an issue, get the SUV that you really fancy (I would assume based mostly about the looks, inside and out). But if money is a bit of an issue, I would suggest that you do test drives, then check possible maintenance issues e.g. PMS cost, parts availability, etc..

    Naka LC ka pala eh

    Tignan mo LC70



    Diba kahit luma style yan may dating mahal nga yan eh



    Upcoming LR Defender

    The future will be boxy aerodynamic, not curvy aero. Hyundai ang nagdidikta eh when they furst launched the Hyundsi Santa Fe 2007 , it was the first fluidic design on suv

    Pero ngaun boxy aero naman hihi

    Buti nga eto Mux ko will stand the test of time, boxy diba, affordable pa naman

    Terra so far has the best review among the mid-size SUV's
