    yon nga eh, it's such a nice van pa naman din but for the price you could get 2 starex or an odyssey and a cr-z. parang gusto nilang ibenta sa mayayaman lang. yon sinabi ko sa sister ko na kunin pero sabi niya to expensive for a van.

    I too like the Alphard. But it's way too expensive for me. Can't afford.

    Tapos, sasabitan lang ng kariton, motor o bike; at tatamaan lang ng pinto ng katabing sasakyan sa parking, nang walang kalaban-laban.... Hayyyyzzzzz....

    I drool everytime I see one, especially the very aggressive front fascia of the latest model.

    it has a factor of "work of art from japan" plus higher import tax as well. talangka nga magisip ang gobyerno natin sa import tax na dapat suportahan nila ang environmental car gaya ng alphard.

    Toyota Alphard is exempt from import tax if it comes from Japan. Wondering why they didn't use the 3.5 liter engine for the Odyssey so it will be exempt from import tax also. There's a 190 HP 2.4 liter engine version for the JDM Honda Odyssey.

    The JPEPA exempts cars with engines bigger than 3 liters from some tariffs. This is the reason why an FJ cruiser with its huge 4.0 V6 is cheaper than a Rav4 2.5 4x4: http://www.autoindustriya.com/auto-i...-of-jpepa.html

    went to honda bgc today and wow ganda ng odyssey. downside lang medjo maliit compared to the starex, di mo ma maximize yung captain seats sa gitna if may uupo sa 3rd row. pero everything else is amazing pati makina sobra tahimik di ko nga akalain na naka start na pala kung di sinabi nung sa na kausap ko. time to check if pwede na pa recar sa company ko total yung hiace na inissue sa akin 6 years na din naman.
