    Hello, i am new here. I would like to get your different opinions with regards to purchasing a new car. Budget is between 1m- 1.5m

    Right now, eto ang mga pinag pipilian namin:

    Which is the best buy?
    What we need is:

    1.) 4x2
    2.) Diesel and fuel efficient
    3.) Not so expensive Maintenance
    4.) Hindi Mabigat idrive
    5.) Easy to park
    6.) Many features

    By mid-sized you mean 7-seater, right? If so, the Montero and Fortuner are feature-packed and most affordable among the options in your list. I recently got a 4x2 GLX M/T Montero Sport. I'm lovin' every bit!

    Actually, first choice talaga namin ang fortuner. However, we got discouraged upon knowing that the fortuner is the number 1 most car-napped vehicle in the Philippines. So second choice namin is Montero Sport. Kumusta naman po ang maintenance cost ng Montero?

    1. Walang M/T na Chevrolet Captiva
    2. Wala pang diesel at walang M/T na Kia Sportage

    My top pick, Montero Sport GLX-V M/T. Ok sana yung Montero Sport GLS-V 4X4 M/T.

    I'd suggest you get the newly introduced Montero Sport GLX-V M/T since 4x2 lang gusto mo. Its got 178ps and 400Nm, 50Nm more than the A/T version which is rare since the matic versions usually have more torque than their manual counterparts.

    Uh... so you don't want the Fortuner because it's the most carnapped, but you're considering:

    Mitsubishi Montero Sport (If I recall, number two most stolen SUV na behind Fort? )
    Isuzu Sportivo (Number Three, 2010... number one most stolen AUV... kasi wala nang bagong Revo... )
    )Kia Sportage (no numbers, but when the Sorento was new, there was a spate of Sorento carnappings... likely be the same with the Sportage)

    -

    Kahit ba naman mga ten year old Civic na medyo run-down, kina-car-nap... bentahan nalang 30k, libreng delivery pa.

    -

    If you want a car that no carnapper will ever look at, buy a car that nobody in their right mind would ever want to buy... like a Daewoo Espero. Hell... baka bigyan ka pa ng libreng kotse ng mga carnappers.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Well i am not saying na i am looking for a car that is carnapp-proof. What i am emphasizing is that being number 1 on the most carnapped list speaks something about the car and the carnapper's preference. We just want to have a good ride without having to worry much about it getting carnapped (peace of mind habang naka park)

    If only CRV had a Diesel variant, we could have gone for that vehicle already.

    Right now, we are still deciding (ranked according to preference):

    1.) Montero Sport (latest)
    2.) Fortuner (latest)
    3.) Sportivo (latest)

    Got my fortuner last december and until now cautious pa din ako sa carjackers. Di na uso at di na ganun kadali ang carnap or SWP. It comes with the purchase. Most requested vehicle ang fort sa mindanao kahit di hamak na mas underpowered at lacking in features than newer rivals. I even got into firing dahil sa sasakyan na to.

    Looking at your number 1-6 criteria...funny but, it fits the crosswind perfectly...

    Wala kasing power,speed,torque....

    Pero kung yung 1-6 lang crosswind na yan hahah
