  • Alphard vs Estima vs Better Not Buy

    Hi everybodi




    I am thinking of getting either 2004 Alphard or 2004 Estima for the wife. Presently she is using the lousy tincan Toyota Avanza.


    Any comments which mpv to get?

    Alphard or Estima? Expensive to maintain? I heard that the Alphard 3 liter is a fuel Guzzler like the X5?

    Initailly I was thinking of E60 520 for the wife. But after visiting 3 dealers incl na za, I found out 520 is not a good idea as it has engine issues known in this region and expensive to mantain. I have been pointed at the Estima or Alphard or even the Odyssey instead.


    Any thoughts about the mpvs above?

    Alphard 2.4 VVTL-i

    get the facelift front headlights, and rear hybrid lights.

    check the doors (auto moving) for wear n tear.

        if your budget's around rm150kish, consider also the caldina gt4, honda stream rs, and the wish. really depends on what you're looking for.

          Moonraker, Alphard ... better choice. Resale is stronger. Seems people who don want it be4 now want! Harrier2004 used to be cool (now no more lar) Driving the Alphard 2004 upwards is equally good. Roadholding is just as good! Estima later model- dashboards are futuristic.
          Only the Estima 2004 to 2005 drive more comfortably due to softer suspension.

                    Bro, Alphard 2.4 year 05 price is between 170k-190k, however the price for 05 Alphard 3.0 is between 230k-260k depand on the spec~!!! In other hand, few of my friend who own alphard told me, no big problem for them until today, just some minor repair on the car, so I must said alphard is quite a reliable car~!!!
