    hehe. Im thinking of selling it kahit m sure na lugi na ko. Well i guess next time i'll be more careful.
    I had very limited budget noong binili ko ang avanza J. kung kinaya sana, i might have brought a bigger vehicle.

    If priority mo ang innova, bakit avanza ang nabili mo?

    bakit naman daw?

    mas mahal ang innova, so mas malaki ang % nya?

    wala naman akong problema sa Avanza.. was looking for the cheapest A/T that can sit more than 5.. ni consider ko din ang Innova.. pero hindi ako kasya sa 3rd row nang Innova.. surprisingly kasya ako sa 3rd row nang Avanza.. so I got the Avanza G A/T.. bukod pa na mas mura sya sa cheapest Innova A/T that time.. up to now satisfied pa din ako.. btw this is our 1st car.

    Reason bakit ako kumuha ng avanza:
    1.) Mas gusto ko ang porma ng Avanza. Diko maintindihan ang porma ng Innova, parang napisa. Ayaw ng wifey ko ng Innova, di nya gusto ang porma.
    2.) When we test drive both Innova and Avanza, Avanza pinili namin, mas hiyang kami sa pagdrive.
    3.) Mas maliit ang legroom sa 3rd row ng Innova, we need bigger one kaya Avanza kinuha namin. When the 3rd row set folded, mas maluwag ang avanza kaysa Innova.

    I am using our Company Car na Innova when I am assigned at Subic, sabi ko sa sarili, eto ang bibilhin ko But when I tried driving my brod Avanza, I change my mind(plus of course the reason above). Though kaya ko mag Innova pero malaki na-save ko sa Avanza for accesories.

    No regrets...Kung magkapera uli ako, between the two, Avanza uli kunin ko.
    Kung may mag bigay sa akin ng Innova, benta ko para pangbili ng Avanza....hehehe

    Luging lugi ka kung ibebenta mo... right after you've bought it. Just keep it.

    I don't know what you guys are complaining about. I ran an Avanza 1.5 for a week, and while the suspension is soft, it's not terribly bouncy. Not as heavy and stable as the Innova, but not Crosswind bouncy.

    The Innova isn't bouncy, really... but it's stiff. If you drive over harsh roads every day, like the SLEX, it can get tiring... I think James Deakin even noted during his Nautical Run articles that his son got carsick from the "tagtag" when they were chasing down those sportscars over the broken roads down south.

    +1 on meledson... higher commision. ...yes, the Innova is a bigger, more solid car... but it costs quite a bit more, spec-to-spec so it should be.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    *niky,

    noob mode: Ano ang difference ng soft suspension sa stiff suspension?

    pag soft, the car bounces? Pag stiff ramdam mo lahat ng dips and bumps?

    I do drive sa SLEX everyday.

    Maybe it's his driving B) He seems like a tell-it-like-it-is kinda guy though.

    From my limited experience, matagtag ung innova. i was kinda concerned when my grandma had to ride in one. Buti inalalayan ng driver, dahan dahan talaga pag negotiate ng lubak.

    then again...isn't it just a matter of changing the suspension thingy? Di naman mavovoid ung warranty di ba?

    reason was he doesnt like it at all.. i think it doesnt have to to do with commission or anything.

    Ako din noon pili talaga between Innova and Avanza. Yung kuya ko bumili ng Avanza at na drive ko din at nagustuhan ko un hatak nya kahit a/t. Compare ko sya sa Adventure na a/t ng hipag ko mabagal at naiiwan ako sa stop light. so scratch out ko na un adventure, compare ko naman un avanza sa innova. yun engine ng innova 2.7 un avanza 1.5 mas matipid 3 lang nmn ang anak ko kya bagay tlaga sa amin. mas maganda pa itsura ng avanza kesa sa innova. turning radius ng avanza 4.7m lng syempre mas malaki un innova kaya mahirap pag dating sa parking ng mga malls. sa suspension naman pareho lang un tigas mas mabigat lng un innova kaya siguro parang mas malambot sya pero dahil mas mabigat mas malakas sa gas bukod pa sa mas malaki un engine nya.

    Yung innova ng kapit bahay nmin binebenta na nya kahit palugi.... siguro kasi nakita nya un avanza namin...

    Pero sa totoo lng medyo matigas talaga un suspension ng avanza kasi designed sya for 7 unlike sa kotse na 5 lng. Kaya bukod sa avanza a/t nmin napabili din kami ng susuki celerio para kung si mrs lng ang aalis o ako lng un celerio nlang gagamitin bukod sa mas matipid sa gas di matagtag.

    Hindi kasi pwedeng pilitin ang isang bagay na di naman sya designed for that purpose.

    A car can be soft but not bouncy... like the Corolla.

    It can be soft and bouncy... like the Sorento or old Starex.

    Having driven the Avanza a few times (on the SLEX, which is good at making cars bounce), I didn't gather the impression that it was soft and bouncy.

    But the Innova feels rather stiff and bouncy on the SLEX. Not as bad as older AUVs, but it's there.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...
