haha ha Trigerman,
mahirap tangapin ang katotohanan. NCAP is an independent body not from somebody or from the press. US NCAP, Japan & so many...
you really undestimate the PROMDI small time farmer.
I dont have my D-max yet ,ahh este STRADA. THATS WHY my research continues. If this is the first time i have to own baka kumuha na ako. hindi sa pagyayabang
my first car was 2002 XUV (just recently sold out) & then my wife's 2006 Suzuki Swift.
Dis-oriented? how come? MMC at present has 8 vehicle manufacturing in 6 countries: Japan, Australia (closed Feb. 5 2005), Netherlands, wow Philippines (cainta rizal), Thailand & US. Correct me if I'm wrong- 4th generation STRADA or TRITON or L200
is solely assembled in the Detriot of Asia-Thailand & exporting to 140 countries. The Euro NCAP 4 star rating gained is from the same unit assembled (surf web kasi ako dahil type ko ang Strada).
It has better stability at high speed due to its lowered COG. (NOT GOOD FOR OFF ROADING, YOU NEED ALL THE GROUND CLEARANCE YOU CAN GET FOR OFF ROADING)
PROS & CONS of Strada
from reviews/feedback- STEERING problem
OFF-road capabilities- has a slight problem due to its short wheelbase but can be able to match with LR & LC (see the free encyclopedia) (SHORT WHEELBASE IS AN ADVANTAGE IN OFFROADING)
Accelerate faster but many dislikes the fuel comsumption.
History wise- the first 3 generation of this truck has sold out 2.8 million units worldwide. (Please search the Dmax, Hi-lux or Ranger how many been sold out?)
tama na--baka bawasan na ako nang reward from MMC dahil binisto ko na ang bad feedbacks.
Don't understimate a MAN under a mango tree.
Anyway, thank you guys for sharing your views. Have a pleasant day.
I GUESS WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY HERE IS "DONT BELIVE EVRYTHING YOU SEE ON THE INTERNET" My friend.....
