    Looking at the dimensions, the Captiva is actually only slightly smaller than the SF. Where did all those millimeters go? Pero oo nga, the Tucson gives an impression that its a bigger car than it actually is, especially if we look at it upfront.

    Thanks for the input guys. Made me rethink of owning a gasoline fed car that seemed bullet proof. Diesel's probably the efficient way to go these days. Spoke with a friend from Bacolod recently who surprisingly owns a captiva. He's preety content with it and says he doesn't have problems with it, but gave off a warning regarding the maintenance here in Manila. That brand's got some reputation.

    Diesels are usually more reinforced due to the higher internal pressures from the combustion proccess due to the compression-ignition it has. Also, they usually run on lower engine speeds, so it makes diesels last longer. As far as Chevrolet's reputation goes, General Motors is still one of the greatest automakers, and even Toyota has copied the layout of some older Chevy engines until a few decades ago...
