    2. Ano usual na sakit ng Altis?
    3. Kamusta ang kunsumo per liter?
    4. Kamusta ang performance?

    1.Ano difference ng J, G, E, etc.. models nila?

    J - 1.6L, m/t, all power, no ABS, Sanden A/C
    E - 1.6L, m/t or a/t, w/ ABS, Nippondenso A/C (auto climate control)
    G - 1.6 or 1.8L, a/t only, leather seats, 15" rims

    2. Ano usual na sakit ng Altis?
    - Engine sludging. This is caused by not following the 5,000kms change oil interval basically. (Kahit synthtic oil ang gamit).
    - Warped front rotors

    3. Kamusta ang kunsumo per liter?
    m/t 9-10km/L (city driving), 13-16km/L (highway)

    4. Kamusta ang performance?
    Okay naman.

    5. Hindi ba ako mahihirapan sa after market maintenance?
    Parts are readily available in Banawe and the Toyota CASA. Reliability of your car will also depend on how the previous owner maintained it.

    ahehe... kaya pala kakakuha ko pa lang ng 2nd hand 1.6E ko noon me slight pedal pulsations na. akala ko naman effect yun ng ABS.

    3. Kamusta ang kunsumo per liter?
    m/t 9-10km/L (city driving), 13-16km/L (highway)

    tama. using casa FS oil, i attain 9.7-9.9km/l city and 13-14km/L highway consistently. di naman mahirap maghanap ng pyesa especially kung di ka mapili na kelangan OEM lahat. even going that route, dami rin nagbebenta sa sulit (buyer beware though) and mga regular auto parts stores. sa amin lang sa marikina, most of the car parts store me stock ng mga altis parts. me iba rin kasi parts na in common with other variants.

    You have to drive the car. Test drive kung prospect car ito. You can feel some pedal pulsations when braking, and sometimes even steering wheel vibrations.
