    The 2006 Suzuki XL-7 actually crossed my mind. Would anyone know if this model came into the Philippine market? Cons will probably include aftermarket service/parts. It would also be very nice if the folks at Mutsubishi will come out with an SUV 7-seater model based out of the new Strada platform then price it a little bit lower than the Fortuner just like what they are doing now with the Hi-lux. That, I would think will definitely eat into the Toyota market. I only wish Mitsubishi management had the foresight to anticipate the changing market needs. Just thinking out loud.

    This was the only XL7 that was sold locally:


    The latest model is derived from the GM Theta platform which also underpins the Chevy Equinox and is intended for the US domestic market.

    I think the GenIII Paj at PHP1.5M is worth looking at. Makikita mo naman sa condition niya kung laspag na or hindi... interior palang will speak how it was used.

    I am in the market for a mid-size SUV with a budget in the range of 1M-1.3M. Will use it for daily commute and occasional out-of-town trips. 4x4 will be a nice to have. I have sort of narrowed my choice (after reading thru your discussions in the Fortuner threads) and go for a brand new Fortuner VVT G variant (despite its shortcomings I still view it as the best value for my money). However I browsed thru the Sunday Manila Bulletin ads and came across quite a fewl 2nd hand SUVs at competetive prices. My choices therefore expanded to include (in order of priority):

    #1 2006 Toyota Fortuner VVT Gas P1.353M
    #2 2003 Mitsubishi Gen3 Pajero Diesel P1.5M
    #3 2002 Nissan Patrol 3.0 TDI Diesel P975K
    #4 2003 Isuzu Trooper Skyroof Diesel P950K

    The Gen3 Pajero is my dream SUV but I just find the price too high for a pre-owned. The Patrol is a full size SUV and price is attractive but I do not know much about Nissan quality and reliability. The Trooper too is nicely priced and engine performance is great but the looks and body design is very much outdated.

    If you were in my shoes which SUV will you go for ?

    I would very much appreciate your views. I need to hear a different perspective so I can have a more informed/balanced decision.

    Hope you can help me out.
    May nakita ako sa Carfinder section Forsale na 2004 Montero Manual Diesel parang mas ok ito sa Fortuner Vvti. IMHO
