the 2007 Ford Shelby Mustang 350H looks like the "foose-tang" in an old episode of rides

a friend is considering getting a pick-up truck.  i vote for Toyota Hilux but it doesn't have ABS unlike the others in its class.  is Toyota considering installing ABS for requesting clients?  haven't visited their showroom yet.

yeah, that too.  it's a 2.5 common rail engine if i'm not mistaken.  pero parang maliit yung flatbed.

stay away from toyota if you're considering a diesel one, they haven'y perfected their diesel engines as evidenced by their common rail d4d engine malfunctions in fortuner... better try the isuzu dmax

they haven't perfected it until now?  <sigh>  sayang.  i heard the problem is about its fuel filtering system.  ayaw ng maruming diesel.  they should have solved the problem by this time.

your friend should also consider the new ford ranger, I believe its already available in the market and for test drive.

hmmm...  looks very nice.  i'm yet to see an actual unit.  what's lacking (daw) is leg room for the 2nd-row occupants.  we'll check on it.  looks like a REAL truck.  thank you po.

How do you remove water spots in your car?  I found this article:  http://www.guidetodetailing.com/articles.php?articleId=15

It looks good, has a small turning radius, but its cramped inside and has a shallow and shorter bed.

I drive a 2000 Strada and the sales fella didn't know any better when he was insisting it was bigger.

Right.
come on Toshi!

the problem in some fortuner is due to the 'rushed' production cause by too high demands.
the diesel in my innova works perfectly. very powerful, quiet yet easily goes 7.5 km/liter in city driving.

based on my experiences, our crosswinds and trooper diesel engine can't matched the toyota's. and these isuzu diesels are notorious for their smoke belching problems.

7.5km to the liter? Isn't that too high? Parang gasoline na yan instead of diesel. Even in city driving I get at least 15km/L in my Isuzu.

panong jumbo starex? yung 11 seater? hindi ako sure kung may labas pa na brand new nito? usually kasi 8 seater nalang ang nakikita ko eh. nagkaroon kami ng 11 seater before, matagtag sya lalo na sa 2nd to the last and last row seat. halos laging hilo yung sumasakay samin dun. yung 8 seater hindi na gano matagtag.

Wow isn't that a little inefficient?
Our Trooper can do 9 km/liter through Makati rush hour traffic...
I know for a fact that Nissan engines are fuel guzzlers, but 7.5Km/L for a 2.5L Diesel engine is a bit too much isn't it...
