    am newbee here, since your planning to have a new drive for a Strada, pls. let me share my 3years+ experience of ownership,
    hopefully Mitsu engines have improved, not prone to stall due to fuel quality.

    mine is the 4M41 which clock 90k+ kms. mileage, really disgusting that twice i was hit by this dirty bomb / fuel pala from Petron.
    i shift to Caltex & the 4M41 is on its best apetite. satisfied with the ride & performance & FC.
    enjoy your drive soon. see you on the road.

    If the 3.2 is alredy 5-speed AT with paddle shifters, then add a racechip pro and you're good to go. Sana!

    Got the 2.5 vgt 4x4 rosita red. Discounts given with the 3.2L is 70K but I thought of the multimedia system and the 5 speed which i think would be more fuel efficient. So far I got 8km/l on my first full tank and 8.5km/l on my 2nd. After mga 1K change oil im targeting to hit 10km/l . Do you guys think its possible? By the way this is manually computed not on the meter. But the difference is around .5 to 1 so I gues somehow it is also accurate. I would like to ask if I changed my mags,would I be able to transfer and use the tmps still?

    After having the 4x2 Navara for 2 years, I would not say I would not buy another because of the ride quality. It's terrible as a daily vehicle. I would get the 4x4 which has a better ride. I would still get a navara though, because the other trucks are too high for business use. Naaawa din ako sa mga nagkakakarga daily akyat baba sa bed. Pero kung porma the ride height is a plus, but if you are going to use the truck as a "truck" for hauling. Then the lower navara should be the priority.

    medyo OT pero mas mura kaya maintenance ng auto 4x4 na strada kaysa sa manual na 4x4

    Siyempre mas mura maintenance ng manual. But an AT is more convenient esp now with paddle shifters.

    They redesigned their manual tranny system to cope with the addt'l power. The peak torque of the manual MS for example is 400 nm, 50nm higher than the auto. Its is almost 80nm higher than the previous non-vgt MS. So they did something different indeed.

    Sure na ba talaga yan? All stations sell Euro 4 diesel? Somehow I find that our Revo still prefers Caltex diesel over Seaoil or even Shell V-Power. Mas smooth ang engine at mas malakas humatak.
