    Yup..ok na ok yan LS pick up or might say TFR series. Yan ang present car namin,have it since 1998 as second hand car,1st owner as company car,ginamit nila for 2 years then nabenta sa amin,so far wala akong naging major problem lalo na sa suspension,almost 10 yrs. bago ako nakapagpalit. Ngayon base sa estimate ko,ang odo nya is almost 300k na and still doing fine. Nagpalit na kasi ako ng gauge,naaksidente kasi ako nun at nasira yung orig na gauge nya.This year im planning to overhaul my transmission,ever since di pa rin ako nakapagpalit...clutch repair kit pa lang. Sa makina naman,thermostat housing pa lang,nabulok na kasi yung mga tubing sa kalumaan na rin at sa starter naman, napudpod na yung armature nya,orig pa ang aircon pero di na sya ganun kalamig compared sa mga bago. Calibrated once dahil sa leak,never naging mausok.Medyo lumalabas na lang yung mga kalawang ng body,actually marami nang bulok yung trunk,plano ko rin na ipa-repair yung trunk,baka anyone of you na meron alam kung saan makakabili ng trunk including tailgate,isang buo, yung isasalpak na lang,baka mas makamura kasi kesa ipa-repair ko. Thanks guys

    I too can attest to the durability of these LS pickups. Got a '96 TFR w/ the 4jb1-t engine. No major repairs 'til now aside from having the inject. pump calibrated 5 years ago...though she's not on her glory days anymore, she is still very much alive and kicking! She has 232k on her odo and is purely stock. Consumption is at 9km/L and 12-13km/L on long trips. Id say she's for keeps.

    *DieselDI -- sir, why not just have it repaired and repainted? i've seen good paint/body jobs on one of the abundant bodyshops in marikina...

    *blue_gambit -- sir, going price for the 4x2 should range from 200k-260k depending on the mileage and how well the rig has been maintained; i would say you can also find a 4x4 along that range, maybe just add up 20-30k on the ceiling

    its torqy enough to get you through your daily low end driving but you need a really big allowance when over taking on those 2 way single lane provincial roads as it is sluggish on the high end.

    Beetols,
    200+ na pala tinakbo ng TFR mo. Ang ganda pa, parang 20tkms palang...hehe naks!

    But seriously, this model is one of the best. Non-computerized, easy maintenance and reliable as ever rig!

    yes, i have a '98 fuego too and i'm quite satisfied with it's performance.medyo matagtag ng konti especially kung wlang load sa likod.but nevertheless its very dependable.

    Buhay pa pala itong thread na ito. I was the one who started this thread almost 2 years ago. My TFR is almost 105k na sa odometer. Quite low ang mileage for his age pero it shows sa interiors nya na hindi masyado nagamit kasi sariwa pa lahat inside. It never disappointed me up to now, ginawang panglipat bahay, been to baguio, zambales, nueva ecija, etc, parating nahihiram pangkarga ng ref at big stuff, panghatid sa pier, airport, pang kampanya during election.

    I got mine na medyo lifted na at big tires. I feel very secure kapag ito ang dala ko. I love it especially kapag mabigat ang dala ko kasi it rides like a limo.

    Had it calibrated because of leak. I once considered selling it but it pains me whenever i think it's quite a hassle-free ride. Matipid sa krudo, low maintenance. Mabagal nga lang at favorite kang parahin ng mga DENR boys for smoke test.

    Hi Beetols,

    Actually meron na akong contact shop for the repair of my pick up trunk kaya lang medyo malaki na kasi yung bulok at malaki na rin po yung dinedemand sakin ng shop. Isip ko kasi baka kung bibili ako ng surplus nito,baka di naman nagkakalayo ng price kumpara kung ipapa-repair ko,kung ganun po kasi better na yung surplus kasi orig pa at papa-repaint na lang. Kung sakali po meron po ba kayong alam kung saan pwede tumingin o makabili? Salamat sir sa response.
