    Default What's the best non-Innova replacement?

    For my office service 2007 Innova J VVTi????

    I recently came from a trip to Sorsogon using my trusty office issued Innova J VVT-i. It's blazingly fast, comfortable, reliable and almost maintenance free. It averages 7-9km/l but that just isn't enough I realized. It ate almost 60% of my trip budget on my Sorsogon trip.

    I need a sturdy ride. My partner and I decided to consider ditching our gas fed Innova. Granting we could have a good deal to propose with our bosses.

    We were thinking of pick up truck, a base model + big tire upgrade. Cause it might be used on country-wide trips up to Mindanao occasionally. So, I need to have a sturdy suspension on some rough stuffs in provinces. Diesel, so it won't hurt my trip's budget and it needs to have a huge cargo capacity. A pick up truck with a backpack might be perfect except that I sometimes carry 6 other people when clients come and strolls around the city with me. Which leads me back to the Innova Diesel. But I don't want another Innova huhuhuhu

    My uncles won't let me get a Fortuner nor Montero, for sure. But I need to have a 7 seater. That's a must. Ballpark budget might be around 800-less than 1M.

    Sorry, I forgot to tell. It's gotta be brand new pala, para no hassles for at least 5 or so years. Saka para hindi kami mahirapan i-dispose yung Innova, i-trade na lang kung sakali sa dealer.

    Only the Carens fits your requirement of having a diesel 7-seater that isn't an Innova. Thing is, units are hard to come by since it's being phased out to give way to a new model alleged to arrive by 2013. You'd have to look long and hard for one. There's the Carnival SWB for the same price as an Innova V, but that's past your budget, and it isn't really all that fuel-efficient (similar to 3-liter diesels).

    Another caveat though, the Carens is a softer car than an Innova, since it's not a ladder-frame MPV.

    hahaha! Crosswind?!? After re-reading my post. Oo nga hahaha pero parang na 50/50 ako dun ah...

    Kaso ang kupad nun!

    I was thinking of Carens, kaso this car might end up travelling North to South point of RP, baka walang pyesa pag may un-forseen troubles, mahirap ma-stranded. Nakakainis, sobrang ideal ng Innova hahaha!

    Actually default choice ang Innova. Since ok naman ang service ko ngayon, wrong type of engine lang. Kaso, sasawa na kami ng partner ko sa Innova hehehe we're pondering maybe there could be some other viable choice.

    same as my problem, Innova is the perfect fit, but I am not considering it. Crazy!
