    By the way... while I hate the ride, and I'm dubious about the D4D compared to other CRDis (I feel that Hyundai units are much much smoother), I actually like the Fortuner 3.0 4x4.

    maganda nga na maraming bumili ng Fortuner para exclusive ulit ang mga known 4x4 brands like the Patrol, Pajero, Prado, Murano....

    more than 2 million pa naman mga presyo nito kaya hindi maabot ng masang Pilipino.... ahehehehehe

    1. Because not everyone comes to tsikot.

    2. Because not every single owner of a D4D has this problem, so word of mouth on the street regarding the "D4D issue" isn't very widespread.

    3. Because, despite the possible D4D issues with regards to fuel quality, despite the crappy dealer practices, despite the relatively cheap interior (for the price) and despite the horrid ride (in the opinion of the poor people in the back seat), the Fortuner is still a very handsome, very powerful, decent handling and relatively cheap SUV. So people buy them.

    4. And it's a Toyota. They could sell Norkis Legacies for double the price and people would still buy them. Of course, Norkis Legacy = Daihatsu Mira, and Daihatsu = subsidiary of Toyota, so that's not a very wild possibility...
    5. Wow factor + SUV + Toyota. everything else comes secondary.

    Yes, I agree,now at least you don't have to be a multi-millionaire to get a nice looking Japanese made SUV nor do you have to get a converted right hand drive ,second hand SUV from Subic whose safety at high speeds is really questionable.
    Moreover, as can be concluded from this thread only a very small number of D4D's usually the first batch, are having choking problems. In addition, it seems that just a littlle re-programing could be a simple solution as a member relates.

    So, I believe in a Fortuner you get your money's worth, and also by its entry in the SUV market, it may compel the other car companies to competitively price their SUV's a little lower. For this I commend Toyota.

    AFAIK, this thread still has no conclusion. Most of us are still in a wait and see mode.

    applicable ba ito to D4D engine such as the fortuner and innova?
    what about other Common Rail Engines?

    Hi guys,
    INform ko lang kayo. Our company's Hi-ace having the 2.5D4d engine is having some rough idling lately. It only has 20tkms on the odo.

    ..I hope this is not something major.

    Larshell,
    Di ko pa naman pinapacheck pero this morning, the rough idling became worse. Engine shuts off after a few kilometers.

    Sana nga case of dirty fuel lang ito kasi kung hindi sasabunin ako ng boss ko. I recommended this vehicle for our company. Patay ako.
