The best rants and raves the past 7 days
Jul 17, 2011

'Pilipinas Shell to launch FuelSave--finally' (July 10, 2011)

Don't you just love this advertising hype/bull? They tell you to spend a peso to save a few cents, then tell you to pat yourself on the back because you've saved precious cents. - Bruks_pt

Please stop this bull! Just give us Euro IV diesel, man!!! Until we don't fix this problem, Hyundai, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Honda and VW will not give us their latest diesel technology. - AKP1973

Save up to one liter per tank at no extra cost...just price increase every week. - blazinthrower

'Car thieves operating in southern Metro Manila arrested' (July 10, 2011)

Is it okay to just run over these bastards when they try to steal your car? - JoHunter

No place is safe here in our country; even military camps are prone to car theft! Dapat sa mga iyan shoot to kill! - ChairmanPineapple

'Did F1 champ Sebastian Vettel beat the Stig's time on the TG track?' (July 11, 2011)

Continue reading below ↓

* Amazing. He even made sure that the car had the correct tire pressure before he set off. A very systematic German driver. - robin_micmac

What??? The Stig got beaten by Justin Bieber??? - evolution_sport

'If Kobe Bryant were a car...' (July 11, 2011)

* I don't think it's right to compare Kobe to Aston Martin. Aston is much too refined. If anything, I'd compare Kobe to a Ford--good but stubborn! - engr_kristian

'At Volvo, everything is good for 5 years' (July 11, 2011)

* Warranty in the Philippines doesn't work! Most of the dealers would just respond to your complaints by saying: "It's normal!" Also, some people I know buy new cars but don't go back to the casa anymore because their parts just get swapped or their cars are used without permission! - scoobydoo

'Motor Image Pilipinas kicks off Manila leg of 2011 Subaru Impreza Challenge' (July 11, 2011)

The Impreza is great. But I'm a big guy. I'd be perfectly happy in a Legacy. - JoHunter

'Solon wants 60kph speed limit to be implemented in Metro Manila' (July 11, 2011)

How about a law requiring public-utility jeepneys to have a working speedometer first? Somebody shut that congressman up. - MerryWarner

* Nakaka-bwisit na 'to. - bagodito

* Check muna kaya nila kung yung mga jeepney ng mga botante nila ay may matitinong driver at gumaganang brake lights man lang. - the 8th

* Winston Castelo is a retard. - SuperSnake

I'm sure ni hindi nagda-drive itong mokong na 'to. May sariling driver ito kaya hindi nya alam kung gaano kabagal ang 60kph. - vin323

* What a joke. - sweetpea

'Policeman arrested for car theft' (July 11, 2011)

* Are the cars recovered from thieves returned to their owners? - rdjl_13

'2011 Castrol Edge Hill Climb Series off to a blistering start' (July 12, 2011)

I remember watching Carlos Anton going for a record run at Clark International Speedway a few months back. All I can say is that the man is in a league of his own. During the run, everyone was dead silent watching the man do what he does best. - Aloha Milkyway

'Solons want motorists to secure clearance before transporting cars to any part of the country' (July 12, 2011)

This infringes on our right to freedom of movement and is unconstitutional. - dragun

Solons = morons. Palibhasa siga kayo sa kalsada kaya 'di kayo nasisita. - AuiBoy

* A very backward proposition! Securing clearance will not deter car theft. Legislators, please conduct a comprehensive study before you release this nonsense bill. - voksy

Does this mean a trip to Baguio requires clearance? Stupid. Ayusin muna nila ang LTO at ang PNP. Sa tingin ko, mas malaki ang maitutulong nito kaysa sa pag-abala sa mga inosenteng motorista. - John Rigor

'McLaren celebrates MP4-12C as 2nd fastest car on Top Gear test track' (July 12, 2011)

This car is brilliant, no doubt. Built to shave off precious milliseconds on the track. On the road, though, or as a car you can have fun with--and if I had the money--I'd go with the ridiculously brutal and built-for-fun Mercedes SLS AMG (Jezza bought one). - gvm0116

'Isuzu offers 3 promos on its anniversary month' (July 12, 2011)

* Hindi ba nalulungkot ang Isuzu product lineup? Tatlo lang kasi sila. - dominic

* Wala ba silang bagong models? Mag-iisang dekada na mga models nila--lalo na ang Crosswind.freistil16

'Video: Behind the cover shoot of Top Gear Philippines' July 2011 issue' (July 13, 2011)

* How about bringing 4x4s up to the first lake on Mt. Tabayoc in Kabayan, Benguet? As a TG fanboy, I would love to accompany you guys there. More power to TG. - art

'Launched: Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG' (July 13, 2011)

* Very nice media coverage! - legaity

* Drool...drool...drool. An IWC analog watch in a CLS63? Oh, Lord. When will I hit the lotto jackpot?gvm0116

Botchi has a wicked laugh. He's enjoying the drive. Good for you! But you're not using your signal lights! You're driving like a Filipino. - Pininfarina

* P13.8 million. Wow. I have a question. On Yahoo! Autos, it's only $94,900 (P4.08 million). Tax lahat yung P9.7 million? WTF!!!kreyo06

'Jay Leno visits AMG headquarters, helps assemble V8 engine' (July 13, 2011)

* Nice job, Mitsubishi! I'm very proud to be a Mitsu fan.Kyoichi Sudo

'Restored classic Porsche 911 T Coupe to be raffled off' (July 13, 2011)

* It will only be a Sunday car. I bought an LHF indicator lens and housing assembly for the same car the other day. It cost almost P25,000 and it wasn't even genuine. 997 GT2RS

'Singer Vehicle Design teams up with Cosworth, Aria Group for its retro Porsche 911s' (July 14, 2011)

* A frog ready to leap. - hopeless

'De Tomaso to unveil all-new Pantera at Frankfurt Motor Show - report' (July 14, 2011)

There's a trend starting here--trying to revive old-school "kit cars" from the '70s. But the Pantera will never be the same without the 351 Cleveland Ford engine.997 GT2RS

I like the idea of reviving old cars. I especially adore the Fiat 500. - RS500

'Rider without helmet yields stolen motorcycle' (July 14, 2011)

* Busted! - redcat

* Damihan dapat ang checkpoints ng mga pulis. Marami akong nakikitang mga riders na wala or pambisikleta lang ang helmet. - keithdb

'Toyota shows off refreshed Hilux' (July 14, 2011)

* I like the hood scoop! - migster2

* Nice grille. Courtesy of Subaru? - GBfive

The new Hilux looks great. I won't compare it with the new Ranger because the new Hilux is just an update and not a full model change like the new Ranger. - BOOGIECAT

I'm guessing this will be the final update before the all-new IMV platform is introduced two years from now. - goldcrow

Far better than the old Hilux, but I'm still waiting for the arrival of the Chevy Colorado. - murcielago

* A Subaru pickup. - hopeless

I'm sorry but I can't see any Subaru resemblance. Enlighten me. - RS500

* Dude, the front is a Ford Ranger. - Guest

Chris Bangle must have moved to Toyota as a face-lifter.DriftKing23

'Porsche to boost Cayenne production - report' (July 14, 2011)

* It's still sort of a ghastly thing to look at. - hajabah

'Porsche doubles sales in Asia-Pacific' (July 15, 2011)

* Some say the models are ghastly, but guess what--it's the sales that counts. - 997 GT2RS

* I got disappointed when the security guards of PGA Cars didn't let me inside the Porsche showroom in Greenhills. Do i look like a criminal? I know I'm only a student right now, but we'll never know. Do not put invitations in newspapers asking people to visit your

'Treasure or trash? (Part 3)' (July 15, 2011)

Are you kidding? Is that even a question? Restore it!!! - JV

It looks like a 1953 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 75. Restore it. - AM3

Continue reading below ↓

* I say restore it! It will cost you a lot, but restoring it for all its glory will earn you a great deal of respect. Hope you can post the restoration process and all its phases. - renante

The Godfather theme song just played in my head. - Aloha Milkyway

Restore! I love the cobweb effect though! This will be a show winner once restored.eguchijoseph

* Restore! It's a rare find. - kimi

'Was the CLS63 AMG's price changed due to our reader's comment?' (July 15, 2011)

I just can't stomach this kind of pricing. Can't the government just reduce the tax to at least, say, 50 percent? - heavyW8

I find our government very stupid. Can't they see that if they reduce the tax, sellers of premium/luxury cars can sell their cars a lot easier? Which means many would buy these cars, thus propping up the economy. - angelo

This is the main reason why smuggled cars are prevalent. For the price of one luxury car bought into the country, you can smuggle two luxury cars for the same price. - 997 GT2RS

* Kaya big-time talaga mga luxury-car buyers sa atin. It's like buying three cars of the same kind at once! - gameroomhd

* Only in the Philippines. - ieatworld

* Thank you for this write-up, TGP online. - RaffyDavid

'Is this the new Toyota Fortuner?' (July 15, 2011)

I have a friend who works for Toyota. And he told me this baby will be launched in the Philippines sometime fourth quarter of this year. You'll notice that they're giving P100,000 discounts on the current Fortuner. They are getting rid of their stocks to make way for the new Fortuner.zetsumei

* In my opinion, Toyota is not very good at face-lifting cars. - Guest

Continue reading below ↓

* Guys, kelan ba 'to lalabas sa Pinas? Nakakainis, nadala ako sa less P100,000 promo nila. Yun pala, may bagong lalabas! - gg

I waited for this, and this is what Toyota comes up with?!!ashek268

* Lahat ng cars puro face-lifted na. Galing ba sila kay Vicki Belo?harry102585

Wow. It looks absolutely terrible in every way. And worse than the current unit. - pat

* Taillamps are so bland. - toyotadude

Honestly, this version looks good, especially the interior. The only things I don't like are the taillamps, but they might grow on me if I see them in person. - goldcrow

'GM, FAW launch Kuncheng pickup' (July 16, 2011)

* Looks like a SsangYong Rexton in a D-Max body. - Rem
