    mar, nice vehicle of choice I may say....gusto ko ring magkaron nang patrol safari kung may pera lang....

    regarding your queries, siguro ay hintayin na lang natin yung mga experts dito sa patrol safari kagaya nila ser Ungas at Afrasay....sila kasi ang may patrol safari dito..yung nalalaman ko tungkol dyan ay base lang din sa mga inputs nila, mas maganda na siguro na sa kanila na manggaling mismo ang advice...

    Interior panels, door grab handles are prone to damage. Rear sliding window rattles (on selected models). Check front hubs if it's still working and 4WD mode. Sometimes the diif lock acts strange if turned on.

    More to follow, and you might also be able to add some if you can drop by at Chowking Fort parking area this Sunday (August 15th) at around 04:00PM (1600hrs.). The rest of the Patrol guys are planning to meet there. :D

    if your planning to use it off road. make sure da unit your getting has the factory lockers. there are some models that don't have it. it make a world of difference when you get stuck.

    another thing. make sure that there are no rust on and under the body.

    see you guys in the fort:-)

    Sir Ungas,

    Thanks for inviting me at the fort. kaso nakakahiya yata pumunta kasi wala pa ako pambili ng safari. ipon pa muna.


    Sir Mintoy,

    This is one great inputs. But what do you mean by factory lockers? how can i test it just in case? Sana you can give more features that is unique to this kind of vehicle and that needs attention for buyers.

    salamat po!

    behind the second 2nd row seat sa flooring check for rust. yun may screw kanakabitan ng body sa chassis. yun side ng dual air, sa fix window baka may rust din. see if you can turn the locking nut sa front wheels. check the shocks. test drive it. pag medyo maalon baka sira na ang shocks. don't be discourage about these little things. basta ok ang engine and bargain ang price get it. hindi mataas ang maintenance ng patrol. you'll be surprise that it has less expensive parts than an suv with IFS.
