    We have finally decided and made a deposit for the tbz ltx yesterday. It was a 4-0 vote and I would like to believe build quality was the biggest factor. Will pick up the unit next week once I have time to get it. My concern is I might not be able to sleep until then.

    To the TS,

    I'd start from what improvements does your Mom want from her last car. If she's always on the go then dashboard perks would hardly get noticed. I think the cars strong points would most likely steer in the areas of seating comfort plus added seat control features, Strong air conditioner, comfortable suspension or at least it should not be matagtag, ideal compartment loading as well as passenger seating, Good driver view and preferably no blind spots, a decent entertainment set and most importantly a strong but low maintenance engine. If the MU-X or any other vehicle comes close to these features then your Mom would most likely enjoy it. Good luck!

    ^Thanks! It will be her first. As ive said in my first post she's not techie. She's after good looks but not the macho kind of look. Id like her to be comfortable in it whether she's driving or as a passenger but knowing her, shed probably would prefer to be passenger so she can do phone transactions, etc on her way to suppliers. She might just ignore the entertainment features since wala pa naman syang apo na mangungulit ng disney movies or what not 😁 she'l probably listen to AM news for the latest typhoon than FM pop songs. lol.
    MU-X tech stuffs are sweet but the car isnt for me, its for my mom who really dont bother with the latest android or iphone, how much more with bluetooth and voice command. I bet she can be happy with a nokia 5110 as long as it serves the purpose and easy to use.

    Well then IMHO what she needs is very basic. Your dilemma is more on how YOU want to choose for her. Here's an easier way to decide, ISUZU MU-X, latest model from a company with a good history of reliable engine performance with perky features not to mention a noisy engine. Trailblazer of whatever variant, a new contender with a more powerful engine and a current market favorite along with it's contemporaries like the Montero and Fortuner, etc. Whatever people say about these two, you or your Mom's test ride will attest to your decision. In the end we as car buyers will have to rely on our good relationship with our vendors for warranties, PMS servicing and vehicle care. I have a neighbor who bought a Starex CVX a week apart from mine last December. His unit looks and runs oddly different though we have exactly the same model and batch. He just rides it like hell but mine, well it is treated with a lot of TLC. So no matter how same or different vehicles we compare them with it will still boil down to how much use we subject them to and what unit we believe can handle that kind of abuse.

    PS.
    I'd let your MOM do the test ride herself and be satisfied with her choice. It is going to be her car after all and besides they are all good cars anyway.

    Top-spec'd 4x4 MU-X or Trailblazer -> Trailblazer wins

    Top-spec'd 4x2 MU-X or Trailblazer -> MU-X wins

    Parts & Service MU-X or Trailblazer -> I tend to believe Isuzu will win here.

    Engine POWER and torque- trailblazer wins..

    Engine smoothness and quietness - Trailblazer wins

    Size - Trailblazer is bigger

    Interior - IMO better and Trailblazer

    Originality... MUx is a copy... it copied the TBLAZER....
