    Mm..doc, don't buy unless the pre-owned Prado was originally sold by Toyota Philippines dealer. Never a good idea to buy from those imported through Port Irene in Cagayan or Subic.

    Yeah, avoid conversion like the plague for safety reasons.

    ^Can never trust cars that were offloaded in Port Irene. Most have issues, including the luxury models. Some have replacement engines and some are still RHDs. True, they’re less expensive (or dirt cheap, if you admit it to be) but you wouldn’t want to go through the whole process of “I told you so” later on.

    OTOH, those cars sold through Tsikot.com or other online reseller forums are to be scrutinized properly like an STD medical certificate.

    Nice suv....both in and out...chockful of tech from front and back sensors, camera, apple play, google auto, auto lift for the cargo door etc.

    Looks complete to me wala ng idadagdag pa after market b.s.....1.6 liter gasoline turbo with 11 km per liter fuel economy.

    guapong kotse all around. Feels very solid. Stylish interiors.

    Good day!

    i highly suggest test drive the cars you like 1 by 1

    My vote goes to CRV Diesel and get the S variant :) highest discount i was able to haggle was 35k for 2019 model

    for Gas variant crv i have to skip. Ang layo ng difference ng gas vs Dsl

    my innova 2014 GAS full tank = 350-400km tops crv diesel - 700-750km

    Okay my unpopular choice: base RAV4 LE, even though the (local) Internet says it is overpriced and lacking "features"

    The peugeot 5008 is indeed stunning. Still waiting for the 2020 Subaru Outback to be launched next year. Either that or a Mazda CX-5 TOTL or CX-9 or the now affordable 5008... hmm.. Budget is Php2-3M only.

    Currently drive a Subaru XV.

    ..(~_-),,
    It's my first time to own an SUV. Driving a forester within BGC every day gives me 5-6kms/L. hmmm
