    none of them why-baka may magreact at magalit eh,

    eto favorite ko- traverse awd 2012... better than the explorer never gave me any head aches as light as a feather handling bigger space than lc200 and 3.6 petrol engine but only consumes 9km per liter. - di mo nga lang pwede isugod sa baha kasi mababa - walang bumili kasi mas mura explorer(meron kami nito sakit sa ulo.... warranty against hidden defect law on sales bwahahahahahahaha)

    if ever they bring the 2014 traverse.... bibili ako kaso di na nila dadalhin yan.

    good suspension

    not really a collection, dumami lang kasi ang baba ng resale value parang bumili ka lang ng 5 laptop yung iba, we still have our very first vehicle, wrangler jeep and isuzu trooper more than a decade old

    Hindi 4x2 though there's hardly any difference, so I'll share just for the sake of sharing I'd be comparing it to our 2013 Strada GLS Sport V in my assessment.
    Car: 2011 Santa Fe R e-VGT 4x4 A/T
    City FC: ~7-8km/L
    PMS: around 4-5k every 5tkms, if I remember correctly; non casa maintained
    Assessment: Very powerful, and stable at high speeds. Absolutely no black smoke even under full throttle. 18 inch rims make the ride quality rather bouncy for a crossover, though not to the point of being uncomfortable. NVH is also not quite as good as the 7th gen Accord V6 it replaced. In terms of handling, there is lesser body roll than our 2013 Strada 4x4 though it is still evident in hard cornering. Manual mode is not very responsive and does not give much shifting freedom (Strada's INVECS II is much, much better in this aspect), though the transmission itself is quite good if left alone.

    In terms of interior, high ride height and a lack of a standard stepboard and pillar-mounted grab handles is a bit of a hassle. Spacious headroom and legroom in 1st and 2nd rows. 3rd row has adequate legroom for me (5"10) though headroom is slightly lacking, though not by much. A/C is freezingly cold. The stock AVT touchscreen entertainment system is rather disappointing; laggy reponse and resistive touchscreen. Strada's unit (also AVT) is much better. Interior quality is very good though, approaching midsize sedan quality. Hardly any plasticky bits.
    Key issues/concerns: None so far at 54tkms.

    Car: 2015 Isuzu mu-X 4x2 LS-A

    City FC: 6-7 Km/L (Provincial city, almost 0 traffic)
    Highway FC: 12-14 Km/L

    PMS: No info, but I read 1st PMS costs more or less 7K.

    Assessment:
    1. Great value car for under 1.4M complete with added safety features such as ESC and Traction Control.
    2. Very stable on highways, rough roads. Doesn't feel under-powered even with "only" 136 PS.
    3. Passive entry / Start/Stop system is very convenient, requires less effort for the users
    4. Standard entertainment system (for LS-A) is a plus for long trips with friends/family on board.
    5. Fuel efficient engine is silent for an Isuzu, you can barely hear the noise inside.

    Key issues/concerns:
    1. Stock HU feels somewhat cheap (also from AVT I think), even the map feels dated already. UI isn't that smooth with occasional lags. Also lacks input options like HDMI, screen mirroring, etc. They could have added more for better smartphone integration, plus the ability to use the rear monitor for viewing slideshows or hooking up game consoles aside from playing videos.
    2. Reverse camera takes 3-4 seconds to turn on after putting the gear on reverse.
    3. Front end is quite long, they could have made it a little bit longer for better 3rd row legroom. Space is enough for all rows though.

    Wow! Congrats with your new Mu-X as the newest player in this segment. Good to hear that 136PS feels sufficient for its weight.

    For contributors, please feel free to include your experience for the gas variants for the above-mentioned models. Thanks.

    Thanks sir! I was also looking for threads like this before, I thought I might help those who are probably in the market for a new car.

    Trailblazer Ltz 2.8 4x4 nga lang AT
    FC city 8.5-9.5 km per li

    Highway 11km per li. 120-150kph

    200hp - more than enough can reach speed of 150kph.. W. Ease.. Effortless... Pag floor mo pa you can still feel the push... Sabi nila mas magaang pa daw manakbo ang 4x2?

    Engine noise got a vroom vroom sounds... Nut at normal driving not so quiet..
