    Anong review yan? Lam ko ang Territory ang nasa comfy side. Yung Coolray ang stiff suspension kase "sporty".
  • Review ni Manibela tsaka AutoDeal yung nagcompare ng 4 na crossovers
  • Kung mawawala tax exemption ng mga trucks, mga magkano kaya papatak presyo? Papantay ba sa mga counterpart nya na PPV?
  • @aRTie

    same here bro. "kung" bibili ulit ako ng truck ngayon? ok na ako sa 4X2 sport variant, palit lang ng new sets of tires and mags katapat nyan hehe
  • Guys, just curious... Any logical/reasonable explanation why almost All new releases of Car Brand variants are happening outside our Country? Specially EV's... And lastly, there are articles mentioning about tax/tariff discounts/exemption even subsidies on EV's coming into the country but not a single sign to prove otherwise.

    Sorry po sa OT.
  • @statix
    4x2 din kukunin ko mostly city driving lang naman din ako kung truck hehe buti strada ko 4x2 less maintenance din sa gear oil din




    Nakita ko yung ev ng ford 150 damnnnn yung harapan compartment din lol
  • @dodick
    napagusapan na yan dito or sa kabilang car thread. other countries are heavily subsidizing the EV industry. some even have deadlines of internal combustion phase out. we are still a long way to go. ni wala sa plano ng gobyerno natin yan. malakas pa din ang oil lobby dito sa pilipinas at hanggat di pa nahahanapan ng paraan para pagkakitaan ng mga pulitiko ay di nila ipupush yan.

    yeap, i'll get the 4x4 for playing kaso city driving lang din naman ako most of the time. marami ako nakikita sa kalsadang 4x4 na todo bihis for off-road pero obvious naman na hindi nagagamit off-road, sayang naman,,, sabagay kanya-kanyang trip lang din naman yan :)

    nabitin pa yata sa full sized bed nila haha, utilitarian talaga ang concept ng ford trucks.
    yun pa nga pala ang isa pa, sa mga pinoy papalitan agad yan ng steel bumpers. yun front compartment serves as added crumple zone, kaya wala nang saysay yun pag nag steel bumpers na. susme, para kang sumalpok head on sa berlin wall nun kung naka steel bumpers ka :P
  • same here bro. "kung" bibili ulit ako ng truck ngayon? ok na ako sa 4X2 sport variant, palit lang ng new sets of tires and mags katapat nyan hehe


    Also eyeing the Sport variant - with the same mods (beefy tires and mags + roof rails and bed cover). Pero if they remove the tax exemption sa pickup trucks, mag crossover na lang ako :D
  • if other states/ countries follow this, what impact will it have on car sales sa atin (Gas cars)

    Gas Car Ban by 2035

    malaki magiging impact specially ayaw suportahan ng ibang politiko at mga may ari at kasosyo sa oil and gas companies.
  • I just a post at kot&e.c0m, somebody in the US posted a photo of a casa quotation for the replacement of chevrolet volt battery. It needed replacement after 70k miles. $26800 ang cost ng battery. That is around Php 1.5M. Practically disposable pala ang EV car. Sa US pa yan. It looks like the car itself is subsidized but the replacement battery is not.
  • kaya ok pa rin mag hybrid kesa full EV car.
  • issue pa yan battery disposal na yan kasi not good for the environment din

    antayin natin ang development sa tech na yan
  • another issue is, kapag marami ng ev at sabay sabay ang charging nya pwede mgcollapse ang Power provider. Liban nlng kung me nuclear power plant, pero kung coal parin or kahit windmill/solar mahihirapan iprovide lalo na kapag fast charging lahat ang gamit. still not feasible prin talaga, hybrid otherwise is ok lalo na ung concept ng gasoline generator to charge like e-power tech ng Nissan. and since batts are just around 2-2.5kw mura prin ang replacement nya compared sa full EV.
  • when it comes to hybrid technology, anong brand ang magandang offer like toyota, nissan or chinese brands?
  • Toyota has had the prius since decades ago so madami na natutunan.
  • Signed na ang IRR ng e-vehicle law RA11697. Implementation will start on Sept 20. One perk of having an EV (whether hybrid or full ev) is exemption from Coding for 8 yrs. Expect na mas lalong dadami cars on the street.
  • ^ is that good or bad news?
    BTW mga magkano kaya replacement battery nung kicks IF ever na need na syang palitan? 5yrs?
  • ^ exemption sa coding lang kinaya? wala man lang tax incentives para mapababa ang sticker price?
  • may nakatry na ba magavail ng 3rd party car loan? yung hindi affliated sa dealer or bank. not sure paano yung process pero scam ba tong mga to? may nagooffer lang saken parang sa kanila na lang kumuha ng car loan. pag compute mas mababa sa kanila not sure kung may hidding charges
  • Check mo kung registered sa SEC. Alam ko mas mataas ang interest ng private loaners. Pero baka iba iba rin or may promo.
