Geoff, although I don't really know what the market is like for the Tuscon, that seems like a good deal and you should get a quick sale.  I wish you were in Subic!  My next car purchase will hopefully be a small diesel SUV like that.

I always wonder about working on a diesel type engine vs gasoline.  I know it's less moving parts but 

how is the preventive and corrective maintenance compare to gasoline engine?  Do I need special

tools?  What about reliability of diesel engine and parts availability?  What is the cost per liter of fuel

between the two?

I find the maintenance costs similar. Parts for Toyota and Mitsubishi are easy to get. You see a lot of Hyundai's so you would think the same for them too. I have 2 Mitsubishi's and treat them like a gasoline engine for preventative maintenance (regular filter changes, lubricants, etc.). Cost of fuel is about 10-13p cheaper per liter than gasoline (around $1 per gallon). I went with a washable air filter to save a little money. I just had to replace my fuel injectors and it cost me 1200p per injector (x4 = 4800p) plus labor and some other small parts, around 5500p. That truck is 11 years old and as far as I can tell, it had never been done. I replaced the timing belt 5 years ago (preventive, wasn't worn out) and it still is fine. For me the selling point on the diesels is the low end torque. I think the body would rust away before the engine died. I have heard some people easily getting 200,000 miles out of diesel engines.

Do I need special tools?
You need special tools and even special computer  :)   for normal cars, which aren't old. I don't expect a small city repair shop have such, that's a reason I will probably buy a Toyota Other MT or a Suzuki Multicab, which Pinoys have "everywhere".

 

(But I managed to replace a broken geer box stick once by "fooling" the special tool need by puting back the spring backwards, but it functioned  :)

Cebu Hyundai service center has been great, no problems. Diesel I find much more practical here especially with the floods. As for the model, also perfect with the high ground clearance, very comfortable ride. 

So if your looking for a modern reliable car then this is it, sold by the owner with no hidden history.
