    only time would tell if toyota (and the other car manufacturers) have already adjusted their engines to suit the "dirty" diesel being sold here in SEA.

    Oh, by the way, the Kia salesman also admitted to me that the sorrento crdi is patterned after the starex crdi (patterned or same engine, different badge, I wondered silently,, di ba kia binili na ng hyundai?)

    OT: the starex & sorento have the same engine. And yes, Hyundai bought Kia a few years ago.

    Goodbye, Revo

    Inquirer News Service

    IT HAS expanded the local definition of taxi to include "FX," broken the stranglehold of jeepneys on commuters and national politics, provided airconditioned-riding comfort to students and employees who otherwise could not afford taxis, and given OFWs not only their first vehicles but people-hauling business as well.

    We are referring to the Tamaraw utility vehicle and its various iterations FX and Revo which, after a 13-year run and nearly 141,000 units later, Toyota Motor Philippines has stopped assembling.



    Toyota's plant in the Bicutan area in Taguig City rolled out the last of the Revos before the annual Christmas shutdown and, as of early this week, had only about 60 units left unsold.

    Toyota marketing first vice president Daniel Isla is confident, that with aggressive in-house financing, this last batch should be disposed of by Feb. 14, when Toyota launches Revo's replacement, the better-appointed, quieter-engined Innova.

    From its October 1991 introduction, the Tamaraw/Revo quickly displaced the jeepneys as king of the road and, together with the light rail transit system, broke the back of the leftwing-dominated jeepney lobby. What Malacañang could not achieve, technology quietly did.

    But improved technology has also spelled the end even for the new king. And with the excise tax cover and the "10-cheater rule" gone, Revo and the rest of the Asian utility vehicles had lost their tax and price advantages.

    It was simply cheaper to develop and produce a globally accepted vehicle such as Innova rather a region-specific workhorse like the Revo.

    The good news is that Innova, despite its car-like cabin features, is still priced within the Revo range, the P800,000-range, although the unabated rise in the price of steel is worrying Toyota's numbers crunchers.

    And for the daily commuters, the Innova should spell instant relief, as the new people mover has only eight real seats, not the dwarfish "10" of the utility vehicles.

    Yup, Marantz told me that there are very few Revo's left (IICR, most of them are VX240D).
