    Sadly apart from the face lift the AL trucks still have old solid axial even in the front and i suppose the same old AL engines. Either way local stuff means good serviceability and spare parts availability, which is crucial.

    What is "solid axial?" How old is old? Yes, AL is still using the same old engines as they were using 15 months back, but definitely not the same old engines they were using 15 years back.
