    "You get what you pay for."

    One can't expect Prado quality on a Fortuner price.

    If it's needed right away, i think TB would be the best choice on its class.

    If you can wait a while, then it wouldn't hurt to wait a few more months for more data and user feedback.

    it is still advisable for you and your family to test drive the units, to each his/ her own.

    Totoo namang ecstatic ako sa Trailblazer.

    If later on may mga issues tayong madiscover and we think we made a mistake on purchasing the TB. So what? It was our money to spend.

    If may mga issues, mauuna pa ang mga Thai na makakadiscover. Kaya dapat i-monitor natin ang website ng Thai Trailblazer Club.

    2 airbags is enough. And the Trailblazer has Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control System, Hydraulic Brake Assist, Panic Brake Assist, Cornering Brake Control.

    And also, the Trailblazer and its pick up brother Colorado got a 5-star safety rating from ANCAP (Australia New Car Assessment Program) which uses the standards of the Euro NCAP.

    Question lang, do you want a 4x4 or a 4x2? A/T or M/T?
    Right now seems like M/T lng ang available sa 4x2. . Hoping to see the A/T version on the 4x2, but i guess it will take sometime. . If budget permits 4x4 would be so much better with those added features. . But the price seems a bit of a reach for us.. I'm really looking forward to see the actual TB here in Cebu. . Thanks..

    Very good point.. I guess this will all come down to seeing it first hand and of course the test drive. . Resale value then siguro is a factor.. but hey, positive thinking lang ok nah..

    Thanks Steer... I'll be following this thread for any insights from owners like you.. Of course I'm taking it from you.. Ecstatic nga ehh.. so highly anticipated ko ang TB.. before Fortu or Monty.. Now seems there overshadowed sa mindset ko.. hehehe

    Magkakaroon ng 4x2 A/T either 1Q or 2Q of 2013. You will like it because it will be using the 2.8L engine of the LTZ 4x4
