    I will be bias since I own a 2007 Carens M/T. Go get one! Why?
    1. It's faster than the 3 other choices. Can easily do 200kph & more if you have the cajones.
    2. The 3rd row seats folds flat to give you a big luggage space. 2 balikbayan box can fit here + some bags.
    3. It has a decent fuel consumption on city driving, around 10km/ltr, and around 14km/ltr on pure highway driving.
    4. It is six-speed!
    5. It has a car-like ride.
    6. Maintenace costs are approximately P4k per 5t kms, and around P7k per 10t km intervals.
    7. You can make a sleeping bed with the 3rd row seats up and the 2nd row seats spread out. It also has various cargo/seating options due to the 2nd row seats are 60:40 split/tumble/fold-flat/slide/recline type, while the 3rd row seats are 50:50 fold-flat/ recline.
    8. 7 "Pinoy" adults can really fit in.
    9. After more than 4 years (40t kms), only the battery was replaced. I did not encounter any major problem so far. Even the cassette tape still works! Oh, the passenger side door handle broke due to "excessive" force.

    Hope this helps!

    lahat ng car brand basta sa casa ang maintenace mahal talaga. but pag sa labas ka bumili ng parts mas mura ang oem parts ng kia/hyundai compare sa mga japanese car.

    granted mas cheaper ang maintenance ng crosswind compare sa carens.

    but i would not sacrifice the riding comfort and performance from cheaper maintenance. cheaper maintenance nga pero tuwing biyahe mo laging masakit ang katawan mo pagdating mo sa destination especially pag long driving dahil sa tagtag.

    That is why I've a second vehicle for long ride. Daily service car lang ang crosswind ko. Wala ako pakialam sa gasgas at sama ng panahon. Basta kayang dalhin yung cargo ng business namin oks na. :D

    ^^pms pinaka mura na ata yung xwind non turbo engines.
    yung sa amin 2k lahat sa 10k pms ng xmax sportivo namin 2.5 turbo.
    5l ng delo gold nasa 1k+ php
    tapos fuel/oil filter 500
    php,
    300php service.nasa 2k php lng.

    *BB i'm sure bout the fc of carens some tsikoters agree w/that matter,carens should have higher cost from its maintenance because its a better car than those japs auv cars!

    BTW
    You don't have to compare the carens from xwind simply because it's SELF-EXPLANATORY!!!

    GETS???

    If you think im a korean car fanatic then your definitely wrong,what I'm trying to imply here is to take consideration on what ts needs and what's his priority in choosing a car. He did first mention the riding comfortability thus it should be the carens!

    Huh? Galit ka brod?

    Ok. I stand corrected na mas ok pala ang FC ng carens due to its crdi engine.

    But, na-compare ko ba ang carens sa crosswind? May self-explanatory all-caps ka pang nalalaman. hehehe

    And may sinabi ba akong korean fanboy ka? Why? Guilty ka?

    Don't get me wrong ha. I also like Korean cars especially the Sta Fe, in fact previous Tucson owner ako and planning to wait for the new Sta Fe.
