    Reservoir should not be full to the brim (or even close), otherwise it will just spill out during vehicle operations. With a cold engine, notice if the level is between F and L then this is perfectly fine. You will notice that the level in the reservoir will go up to near "F" after the vehicle has been used on a trip.

    In terms of costs, it would makes sense for Toyota to simply use the lowest costing oil for every new engine assembled.

    The TGMO 15W-50 (not 40) is semi synthetic. Its double the cost of mineral oil.

    You can buy Honda repacked 10W-30 from Honda casa or 5W-30 by MAG 1 (more expensive). Both are mineral oil. Find a Toyota dealer/casa that would allow the use of such during the PMS.

    It doesn't indicate in the manual but the 1,000 kms PMS is listed in the warranty booklet. You need to follow that schedule so that Toyota can honor the warranty agreement.

    Tried out a 1.6E in the showroom. The clutch feels heavy or its not as light as those on the Civics (EG, EK).

    Yung mga nagpa ayos ng rattling sa A pillar, how long did it take the casa to finish the job?

    Would you recommend that I have the casa fix it or just leave it that way? Parang hesitant din ako na baklasin nila yung dash ko. I don't have to pay anything for that, do I?

    Alam ko A-pillar lang mismo huhugutin dun not the dash, tapos lalagyan nila ng foam insulation sa loob. Yung akin kasi pinasabay ko lang sa PMS. Sabi nung SA additional 1-2hrs lang daw para gawin yun. So okay naman, wala na rattle. Actually yun lang ang rattle na kaya nila i-solve kasi common daw yun, so I guess expert na sila dun. At oo, walang babayaran.

    ^Thank you so much! Because of your advise I will push through with having the rattle fixed.

    I'm kind of wondering why the Service Advisor that I called told me that they will finish around 3 or 4 pm if they start working on my car at 7 am - that's 7 hrs. PMS, repair ng rattle saka check lang yun ng hard steering.

    Also, may tuklap sa bumper ko na mas maliit pa sa 5 cents. Hindi ako binigyan ng touch up paint when I first got the car kasi sabi ng Sales Advisor ko they don't give out touch up paint anymore. Dalhin ko na lang daw pag kailangan ng touch up. I shouldn't pay for that either dba? Yung Sales Advisor ko kasi mabait. Kahit matagal ko na nabili yung car ko, he is still very accommodating to me. Yung Service Advisor - no comment.

    Ano style niyo so they work on your car faster??? Pwede ba panoorin?

    Based on my experience, 1.5 to 2 hours usually ang tinagal ng PMS for 1K and 5K kms, on a weekend morning. Ewan ko lang kung mas mabilis kapag weekday ka nagpawaga, at depende rin sa casa iyan. I-expect mo na na medyo matagal sa dami ba naman ng sine-service nilang sasakyan.

    Saang casa ka nagpapagawa? Not all casas are the same; some are okay, but some also leave a lot to be desired for.

    Ang style kasi nila minsan, sasabihin nilang sa hapon pa matatapos yung trabaho pero kaya namang matapos by noontime, at kapag natapos na nga nila nang ganung oras, eh di ma-i-impress naman yung customer. Added brownie points kumbaga. Hehe... Pero minsan din kasi marami lang talagang sine-service yung casa at posibleng kulang sa tao kaya nade-delay.

    As for touch-up paint, wala na nga silang binibigay. Humingi rin kami noon kasi nagasgasan yung mudguard pero wala na daw talagang binibigay ngayon. Solution? Humanap kami ng magaling mag-mix ng pintura, nagpamix ng medium silver na color, at do-it-ourselves na lang namin ng dad ko yung pag-spray paint! Hahaha... Buti okay naman ang kinalabasan; hindi masyadong malayo sa kulay niya talaga. Kung black o white (not the pearly one) yung Altis mo, hindi naman siguro masyadong mahahalata yung touch-up.
