The best rants and raves the past 7 days
Jul 9, 2011

'Miriam wants your not-so-old car banished from the road' (July 3, 2011)

* This is very good stand-up comedy material. - JoHunter

* If that's the case, dapat lahat ng jeepney at tricycle tanggalin na rin. - eX-Driver

* What we need are more roads and highways. Even if you drive a hybrid car but you are stuck in traffic, you are also polluting the air. More roads and tougher emission standards, please. - Jetwash


'Chevrolet Spark now available in 1.0-liter variants' (July 3, 2011)

* The Spark will spark the sales of cars in the Philippines. - aeronTGco

* Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago should get one for her daily drive and get rid of the Mercedes S-Class that she currently uses. - gvm0116

'German cars and coffee apparently go together' (July 4, 2011)

* The EIC will be coming in a pink car? - Feeter Silverster


'Suzuki Philippines launches all-new Swift' (July 4, 2011)

* Still the poor man's Mini, but nice. - vonschnipp

* Better than the overhyped Mini. - AKP1973


'Rehabilitation of Osmeña Flyover done by late August' (July 4, 2011)

The repair seems to be proceeding in slo-mo pace, and there seems to be only a handful of people working on it. For such a vital overpass, work should have been round the clock with an army of workers and engineers. - HD


'Sometimes cars literally fall from heaven' (July 5, 2011)

I'm really glad the prize went to someone who deserves it. - aargh

* The article is very cohesive and well-written. It's like I'm watching a teleserye in print. - hero01581

I know that salesman from Ford Manila-Otis. He's nice! - BOOGIECAT

* For making my eyes wet, you deserve a Pulitzer, Vernon. - winmig


'Toyota teases with glimpse of next-generation Camry' (July 5, 2011)

* I'd rather get a Bimmer if ganyan na ang presyo. It's just a glorified Corolla. - jamzv


'4 suspected carjackers slain in shootout' (July 5, 2011)

* Shoot first, ask questions later. - 997 GT2RS

* Kill all those bastards. - jayvee99


'PNoy says goodbye to controversial Porsche' (July 5, 2011)

* Mag S-Class ka na lang. People won't think that's insensitive. - hajabah

* This man should ride an e-jeepney to his office to set an example. - ChairmanPineapple

* Kung ako si PNoy, yun din ang gagawin ko. Kailan ako magda-drive ng Porsche? Pag 60 years old na ako? - jbedpan


'This month in Top Gear's Old School section' (July 6, 2011)

* Thanks for the feature, Paulo! Let’s find you a Sprinter! Looking forward to more of your blogs! - budoyarle


'McLaren F1 designer unveils world's most efficient electric car' (July 6, 2011)

At least, it is not as bad-looking as the Tata Nano. - RS500


'Factory of fake LTO license raided' (July 6, 2011)

* Darn! I thought the pic was Vernon's baby pic. - Aloha Milkyway

* Does that mean my diploma is not real??? - nic_homeaid


'Toyota Celica beats F1 cars to become fastest car in Goodwood 2011' (July 6, 2011)

* This is very misleading. First, I'm sure this Celica can't even beat a Force India car, let alone the midfielders and the front runners. Second, the kind of track used and the distance weren't mentioned. - engr_kristian

* I have to agree with you that this is misleading. I've been to Goodwood and this is a hillclimb event. F1 cars are not bred to dominate this kind of event. The surface isn't very Formula 1 car-friendly. - robin_micmac

* Wow. Kinda surprising how many people are reacting badly that the F1 cars were slower than the Toyota Celica. The article was saying the Celica was faster ONLY on the Goodwood course, not on every racetrack in the world. Stop overreacting. It's not like your manhood was insulted or something. - japster_13


'Sale of all-new Impreza delayed to much later this year' (July 6, 2011)

* This Impreza's beginning to grow on me. - the 8th

* As a replacement for my CR-V that's falling to pieces, I want one quite badly. - Aloha Milkyway


'Ford Group Philippines shows off new Explorer' (July 6, 2011)

* Nasaan ang FORD RANGER??????????????????????? - HKB


'All-new BMW X3 recalled over potential power steering malfunction' (July 6, 2011)

Of course the Philippines is never affected by recalls. We have perfect cars here. Flawless... - rtociv


'Toyota Motor Philippines opens manufacturing eco center' (July 6, 2011)

Job well done, Toyota! Keep moving forward. - Adrian Dimayacyac


'What if the Honda Jazz were a station wagon?' (July 6, 2011)

This one is an ideal car for families with two children. I want to own one. Bring it here, Honda. Very nice. - krzcuevas

* Since a lot of you here like the design, ugly is in! - freistil16


'Another Ford Group Philippines executive moving to BMW' (July 7, 2011)

Good to see Filipino executives in big car brands rather than mga dayuhan. - 997 GT2RS

I met him at one of Ford's events last year. He was very accommodating and witty. - maranello_5775

* Indeed, a big loss to FGP, but a great career move for Glen. - markis


'Land Rover begins production of Range Rover Evoque' (July 7, 2011)

* The name still conjures up images of a "Lancer-on-a-stick." - RaffyDavid

'Ford comes up with hotter Fiesta Sport Special Edition' (July 8, 2011)

Of course it's only available in Europe. They won't even offer us a 1.6 M/T Sport hatch version here. - HD

* The sad thing is that Ford Thailand (the source of our local-spec Fiesta) actually manufactures the 1.6 manual models, but they're for export to Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. - AM3

Be still, my heart. - Balisong


'Fake MMDA traffic aide nabbed' (July 8, 2011)

* Legitimate or not legitimate, what's the difference? They all ask for bribe money. - redcat


'Hyundai closes first half of 2011 with 5% growth' (July 9, 2011)
