    Pwede pa siguro basta valid complaint and just document everything. And willing ka to go to all the legalities.

    Ertiga has ground clearance of only 185mm while the avanza has 200mm. Mas gusto ko ang ground clearance ng avanza sa baha.

    noob question:
    would changing the tires and rims help reach higher ground clearance?
    this is my understanding about rims and tires kasi, once you go from 14" to 16" you need to use thinner/slimmer tires, ganun ba yun? or you can change your rims then still use thicker tires (ofcourse it should also fit your new rims)? that way mapataas mo yung ground clearance nya.

    It is easy to change rims and tires to increase ground clearance. But the new problem would be, the new combination might result in the tires rubbing onto the body or chassis, especially during turning.
    Kanya-kanyang clearance figures ang mga kotse..
    You will have to consult the experts on this..

    My ford escape has a ground clearance of 200mm. But i'm not confident going to a flood with her. At midwheel, isang alon lang baka pumasok na sa loob. Ertiga, and most sedans, have the same vulnerability I guess.

    Ground clearance means almost nothing in a flood, unless you're crossing against a strong current (which, no matter how high your flooring is... you should never do.

    What really matters is air intake height.

    -

    Case in point: Ford Escape. The Escape and my CR-V are notorious for having low air intakes for their height. Both have air intakes below headlight level. Which isn't any higher than low sedans that have their intakes at hood level.

    Niky,

    Agree ako sa iyo, the air intake's location is crucial.

    Taken for granted that the air intake is somewhere higher, but the moment water breaches into cabin, we had a bad day. And I don't count on the rubber seals/gaskets around the doors to keep the yukky water out.

    But my APV has it all going for me. As long as the flood is just above midwheel, I can swim with her anytime. Ilang baha sa Marcos at sa Sumulong hiway ang tinahak namin, di niya ako binigo. Siyempre, pa-underwash ko agad.

    Well decided to get the ertiga. Meron pala ka isa isang unit na glx dumating. Will get it tomorrow. I prefer the high ground clearance primarily for parking specially the stoppers na matataas. Yung h.city namin lagi sumasabit yung bumper. And the high ramps na lagi rin sumasayad ang bumper ng city. The ertiga is an inch higher so it will definitely lessen the sayad.
