    correction sir, these are not smuggled vehicles. Actually, Cebu has this ordinance allowing surplus vehicles from korea and japan to enter cebu shores. That's why korean autoshops sprouted everywhere in cebu. But now, their's a recent decision from the supreme court disallowing used vehicles to enter Phils. shores. As for the sportages running in cebu, they are not smuggled vehicles. Mine is not.

    afaik the cheapest I saw was 160T. average 180-220T. 2.2L TD mazda.

    ang ibang tindahan tinatangalan nila ng intercooler kahit may airscoop. some negative comments ay yung overheating. other's made sure they put enough coolant, ang iba they change the radiator and fan to a bigger one.

    wala akong ma recommend though. dili ko taga Cebu.

    Yup, its prone to overheating but now its a none issue. What they did was, they remove the thermostat that controls the water going to the engine. After that, my sportage never overheated. I got mine at 230k. The 1st gen sportage have to types, the short bodied and the long bodied which they call grand sportage.

    Imo I think, thermostat should be replaced with local one, not removed.

    anyways, what city do you live the one? because in fuel consumption, Manila, Makati, etc does have shorter l/km compared to viz-min area.

    * sir rion, im in cebu. grabe na rin traffic dito. walang pinalit na local part kasi di daw applicable yun dito sa pinas kasi mainit dito compared sa korea. Yan din ginawa ng pinsan ko sa pajero nya, inalis yung thermostat kasi laging nag ooverheat, after then wala na problema.

    * sir pal, if you want bigger try 235 75 R15, maganda tingnan. mine has 215 75 R15.

    Masama po sa sasakyan ang walang thermostat. Ito po kasi ang nag-cocontrol sa water para lumamig sa radiator, tapos pag mainit na po ang tubig sa engine block e oopen na po ang thermostat para pumasok ang tubig na galing sa radiator at sasara po uli ang thermostat para palamigin sa radiator ang tubig na mainit na galing sa engine block.

    thanks po, ano ba brand ng gulong gamit nyo? nag tingin kasi ako parang manipis tingnan yon same size ng Bridgestone kaysa Kumho. ang nakakabit sa akin is 205/75 R15 (front) at 225/70 R15 (back) puro kumho ang brand. wala yata stock na ganoon sa province namin
