  1. With Revo, CrossWind out of the market for sometime, what are the AUVs today?

    1. I've always wondered what consititutes an AUV, does it have to be ladder frame? Boxy sheetmetal? Basic interiors? Basic features? Cause they're all technically still MPV's

    2. Forget the AUVs, h things of d fast.

    3. I think they were replaced by xpander, rush, avanza, brv etc.

    4. Forget the AUVs. They're gone. No one's marketing it anymore in favor or SUVs, MPVs and crossovers with high ground clearance... unless you're stuck in the year 2001.

  2. This is how we face crisis! Oil price hike? Masyado ng mahal mga bilihin? Naaaah!!! Nakakapagjollibee pa ang mga pinoy at higit sa lahat, nakakabili ng mga kotse! Scoots like mio and clicks are just candies for filipinos!
