    salamat sa replies. may nakita kasi ako 250K '96 model, 92K mileage, casa maintained. i assume na EFI na itong model na 'to. ok pa rin naman ang paint original pa and makinis, except for some very minor dents.

    so generally, ok nga pala ito. ang iniisip ko kasi is kung malakas ba sa gas. ilang km/ltr kaya ito, purely city driving lang? normally naman mga 4-5 times a year lang ako kung lumabas ng manila. does it have enough power nga pala for occasional required hataw? salamat ulit...

    For hataw walang problema with the EFI, especially kung magaan lang yung karga... it can hold it's own (powerband is on the low RPM range). Back in my reckless college and HS days i could easily bring ours to over 160-170kph given enough road. If you load it up heavily with a full passenger and baggage complement, performance will suffer of course (meaning you'll be using 2nd and 3rd gear more for overtaking slower vehicles).

    Expect lang to do repairs to the suspension, engine and a/c given the age of the car... when we sold ours in 2001 (96 model) with 100K on the odo, a lot of suspension parts have already been changed (shocks, bushings, tie rods, ball joints), along with the clutch, water pump, a/c compressor and timing belt. Parts can easily be sourced in Banawe and prices are reasonable.

    On fuel consumption, we never paid much attention to it back then (mura pa kasi gas noon) but i'd estimate it to be at 6.5-8km/l depending on the vehicle load and driving style.

    Other observations:
    - The stock headlights are also a bit weak, i'd advise upgrading with relays and thicker wirings to take stronger 90/100w bulbs.
    - tinting the whole front is adviseable as the a/c also has a hard time cooling the car on a hot day.

    The EFI versions have crystal headlights, two-tone, triangle-shaped wheels and a third brake light. There's also an A/T available.

    preeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! musta na?

    hindi pa naman sure kung kukunin namin yung spacewagon. nakita lang nung wife ko tapos natipuhan kaya parang napa-isip kami. ok sana kung matutuloy bilhin para yung APV mo saka yung spacewagon dami natin pwede lumakad, makakapagsakay pa tayo ng cases ng beer. yung mistresses wala ako non, mistress lang! bwehehehehehe

    ok sana yung sinasabi mo mag-down na lang pero hindi ako sure sa finances ko this coming year kaya wag na lang. ayoko ng may-utang sa ganitong economy, mahirap na. saka yung old reliable namin na 92 lancel el eh no headaches pa rin naman ako. regular oil change and tune-up lang saka once a year underchassis check-up lang maintenance ko dun. and anytime, pwede ko i-akyat ng baguio no worries.

    although gusto ko na nga yung spacewagon kasi nga space, power ok naman, and consumption is relatively average, it's a matter of "need" muna bago yung "want". the lancer still serves its purpose pa naman. bukod sa love yun ng anak ko. we'll decide in a few days kung kukunin o hindi. no rush naman yung nagbebenta so ok lang. saka kailangan ko rin muna ibenta yung lancer bago ko makuha yung spacewagon.

    OT: isa pa rin ang anak ko. hindi pa nadagdagan. sa oct 2 nga pala kailangan ng maraming batchmates sa notre. may tournament ng basketball. kaya lang hindi ako sure kung makapunta ako.
