Suzuki Jimny’s main competitor… So far

by Admin

Posted on 2019-02-13


The Jeep Renegade is somewhat like a CUV and a mini SUV. Or is a CUV a mini SUV? Whatever. The Renegade is one of those few vehicles that we can use to tackle the main issue: Can it stack up to the legendary Suzuki Jimny?   Well, yes and no. No because, let’s face it, it’s twice the price and it does actually get hung up or stuck on some small hills because of it’s long wheelbase. On the plus side, though, this thing has many creature comforts to make even General George P…

May Bach Economy Class

by Admin

Posted on 2019-02-06


No, it’s not an economy class flight and you’re not buying a Maybach anytime soon cause they’re only for the super rich. This one is about the Mercedes-Benz E-class sedan.   Now, you’re probably wondering why they’ve been popping up recently? Well, that’s because the Three Pointed Star has factories here now so they’re far cheaper than they were in the 1990’s and 2000’s where all cars were imported from Germany.   photo credit to: h…

Berry Mice Wagon 5-Series

BMW is one of the most luxurious car companies in the world and everyone wants one. Unfortunately, our pockets don’t exactly agree with that. Nevertheless, these cars are popping up left and right and there’s one reason why.   BMW, along with Mercedes-Benz and other luxury and exotic car brands, now have factories here in the Philippines. And that means the cars are getting cheaper – about half what they used to. Yes, you read that right, folks. So don…

The new 2019 BMW Z4 is horrible. Here’s why

by Admin

Posted on 2019-01-23


You’re not going to believe me why I think the new Z4 is horrible. The main reason is because it’s a soft top convertible. There’s no hardtop model available as of the reports from my agents so why would you drive something where it’ll fap about when you hit high speeds?   Also, it looks like a Kia Stinger Convertible. No seriously, I promise you. Take one good look at the thing and tell me that it doesn’t look like a Kia Stinger. Go on, I’ll wait. See? I…

RICErs And Useless Mods

by Admin

Posted on 2019-01-16


Nako nanamaaaaan. Itong mga pasaway ‘to. These are the people who like to make useless and pointless mods not to mention non-functional. These guys are RICEr’s or Radically Immature Car Enthusiast. They can be found mostly on old Honda Civic hatchbacks and Toyota Corolla’s but any car can be riced.   One of the most useless mods ever – and the pinnacle of ricers – is the fart cannon a.k.a. the exhaust pipe. Have you heard of or seen a vehicle with a huge, gapin…

Should You Buy A Mercedes-Benz Hatchback?

by Admin

Posted on 2018-12-19


Ah, the Mercedes-Benz. One of the world’s top luxury car producers, they recently developed a sedan hatchback and I have to say that it looks absolutely brilliant. It’s got the face of the new CLS class but in hatchback form which makes it brilliant.   Now, before I start, I have to mention that BMW and Mercedes now have factories in the Philippines which makes the cars far cheaper than they used to be when they were back in the 1990’s and early, mid and late 2000’s.…

Are Hummers worth it in the Philippines?

by Admin

Posted on 2018-12-12


Ah, Hummer. One of the most overrated pieces of equipment in the world. It was considered a failure after the H2 came out because only idiots and rap artists bought one; it cast a bad light on the vehicle.   And those things weren’t cheap either and they had an equally bad price to start with and not only were they too overpriced, they didn’t offer things that their competitors had at a lower price.   The only main selling point of that ridiculous truck was that it had abou…

Wig Wags: What are they?

by Admin

Posted on 2018-12-05


Ah, Wig Wags. We often wonder what they’re actually called because they’re called, in the Philippines, by the name of Wang-Wang. They’re used for emergency uses like in showing motorists that there’s a dead-end road or an uncompleted road way or ambulance and law enforcement.   Last Saturday, as I was heading back home from a mall, I saw a pair of red and blue wig wags about 50 meters from me. Now, I’ve been watching a lot of Alaska State Troopers and LivePD an…

Innovative Innova

Posted on 2018-11-28


The Toyota Innova has been a staple of Philippine MPV’s since it came out in the mid 2000’s and it still reigns supreme today. Well, it’s not anymore the king but it’s somewhere up there with the likes of Kia, Hyundai and many others.   photo credit to: https://www.autodeal.com.ph   And why not? It’s got 7 seats in most models and half the models now are manuals and the other half are automatics each with different trim levels to choose from. I drove an au…

Do you really need to Rush?

by Admin

Posted on 2018-11-21


And I don’t want to rush into it either but do you or I really need one? Yes, physically, it slots in between the bigger Innova and the smaller Avanza. Spiritually, it’s been called the “Baby Fortuner” or “Babytuner”   It sure looks like a smaller version of the Fortuner too. However, that’s where the similarities end because this thing, despite the spiritual name, is armed with the same heart and gearbox of the Avanza.   There’s 3 models…
