    Hi sir, we have a starex CRDi late 2007 acquired. (eventually it's my dad's starex)

    Ang naging problema lang namin sa starex namin sir is at 24K KMS, halos lahat ng bushings, wasak na. I can't understand why, eh mga grand chilren lang pasahero almost every day. hatid-sundo lang, and besides it barely goes out of town. Siguro mga once or twice lang in every quarter makakapunta ng probinsiya.

    Isa rin sa naging problema namin is very uneven yong tire wear, though corrected it through camber alignment. Kaya nagin practice na rin namin na mag tire rotation every 5K kms.

    About diesel consumption, hahahaha matakaw yong sa amin. I think is roughly around 5-6KM/L city driving. But power wise, talagang ok na ok.

    we got a 2006 starex crdi AT. Like what everybody said, this van is notorious sa fuel economy. 5-6 km/l sa city. Ok sya sa long drives. Its a little bit underpowered i think and if you really step on the gas, expect some black smoke to appear. Pero, its a real personnel /troop carrier, and its very comfortable sa passengers. update us bro once you get one.

    ^^huwag ka na mag hiace bro, tagtag dun lalu na yung d4d, pwera lang yung super grandia version. Starex parin for comfort, pero mas matipid ang hiace, wether old or new

    Ok naman ang starex, comfortable ang ride, pero yun lang yung underchasis parts medyo mahina nga daw, yung sa hiace tulad ng old version, matibay ang under parts, matipid din sa FC at maintenance, para sa akin di nman siya under power, kahit 2.4 hindi ka naman mabibitin kahit sa akyatan, kung 12 person sakto yung pang 15 seater hiace, kahit meron pa kayo mga luggage pag out of town

    Ganun ba bro?, sabi kasi nung friend ko mas hindi daw matagtag yung super grandia kaysa sa grandia gl, i just took his word for it. For me hindi pa ako nakakasakay sa kahit anong grandia, kahit commuter pa hehehehe, nung mag van purchase ako last year never kong kinonsider ang hiace, nor any other flat nosed van in our market for that matter. Nakasakay na kasi ako sa mga urvans, L300 of yester years and even the hiace grandia (yung j ba tawag dun? Hindi pa d4d yun), super nahilo ako kahit short trips lang and super tagtag talaga.

    Family namin fans na talaga ng starex hehehe. My dad bought one when it first came out nung 1998. Binenta lang niya nung nalubog kay ondoy. Ako naman kumuha ng gen3 grx crdi a/t then yung current GS vgt ko ngayon, earlier this year 2 pa nga ang starex ko. Binenta ko sa dad-in-law ko kasi nga hindi ko naman kailangan ang 2 vans hehe. Basta comfort panalo talaga ang starex, at kung ikaw personally mag drive starex parin.

    Relatives have both the Grand Starex and the Super Grandia (with the swivelling captain's chairs). While the Grand Starex is stiff over bumps, it's not stomachache stiff. And the Super Grandia is, yes, worse. The extra weight makes it more settled than an unladen Commuter, but it's not very comfortable unless you have a full load of people.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Yung local na Grand Starex matigas yung rear shocks.

    Iba yung part number ng KDM shocks sa local shocks.
