Quote from: egzbuen on October 08, 2016, 05:07:23 AMToo bad preowned is out of the question. I would have suggested the latest Fortuner you could get within your max budget. It will serve you for years. That is if you don't mind also the stiffer ride. Sent from heaven
Quote from: DTNS on October 08, 2016, 03:05:07 PMthe new Fortuner is a quantum leap from the previous generation! especially the ride quality.
Quote from: iamstorm on September 22, 2016, 09:26:13 PMLooking to buy our first car, and we're more or less decided on an Ecosport (Trend, MT, Black Edition). The height was important to us, as it occasionally floods where we live. It's in the high range of our budget.However, I've been seeing bad reviews for the AT, particularly its DCT transmission, and was wondering if transmission problems are also prevalent in the manual. Also now having second thoughts - I don't want to spend all that money and then sakit ng ulo agad 5 years down the road pa lang.Any alternatives anyone might suggest also? We looked at the Juke as well, but it's significantly pricier, and while we love the look and I wouldn't mind the automatic, it also has less space compared to the Ecosport. The Mobilio was also considered, but it was too low - we might as well buy a Vios kahit less spacious, significantly cheaper and reliable pa. I've also driven an Avanza, HATED it, which is why we're crossing that off our list as well. Thank you in advance to folks who'll reply.

Quote from: iamstorm on October 19, 2016, 10:17:43 PMPanget daw. Hahaha. The Tucson might also be a possibility. That it's diesel is a big advantage for me - better for fording possible flooded areas and cheaper consumption (especially since we drive out of Manila at least once a month), and larger space. What's giving me second thoughts is how long the unit will last (since its Hyundai), especially considering that my parents still have a very drivable 1998 Corolla and 2002 Revo, which is kind of my standard in terms of unit longevity. The availability of skilled third-party mechanics (who won't charge an arm and a leg) that can service it after warranty expires is also a concern.

Quote from: iamstorm on October 21, 2016, 10:11:42 PMKung afford lang namin ang Fortuner eh, edi go sa Toyota. Hahaha!We're already around 90% sold on the EcoSport, but I just want to make sure that we've considered all options, this being our first car purchase an all. Mahirap magka-buyer's remorse sa kotse. Haha.
