    Adding features maybe a decisive feat but nothing beats performance upgrade. Imagine, dami ng gen na ng Crosswind (and yes, nadrive ko rin 'to from first models up to the 2006) but Isuzu can't seem to notice that not all of their customers buying the unit are just on for the sake of features alone, but for off-roading and other power-requiring maneuvers as well. Fuel efficiency? If that's the only edge left, oh boy...

    Also, comparing the engine noise with current diesel engines is certainly a lot noisier. Ride-comfort? can't seem to avoid bumping my head up the roof whenever I try to become a passenger and the driver is just terrible in spotting potholes.

    Package-wise, everything's there for the family to enjoy. But performance-wise, it just doesn't deliver.
    Isuzu provides diesel engines to our public utility passenger jeepneys. Crosswinds and Sportivos are the civilized version of it. So go figure.

    Engine noise is unacceptable especially on long driving that you needed to play a Motorhead concert on its entertainment systems to compensate. You have to drive the likes of Sorento, Santa-fe or Fortuner which also have diesel engine to be able to check the difference.

    Interior is cheaply made, that plastic door handle was removed when i closed the door of their display unit, and you bet quality would not pass by Topper ware standards.

    45deg inclined siyempre naman kayang kaya un... there's no such road na inclined 45deg na derecho ng ilang kms... at wlang sasakyan makakaakyat pag ganun. d mo lang pansin na nagbabago ang slope habang umakyat .... pero sa engine dun mo siya mapansin na biglang bumilis.

    Almost anything on the market exceeds CD grade nowadays. Even the run-of-the-mill Shell Rimula X black they sell at Shell. SAE xxW-xx refers to viscosity. It is a separate rating apart from the grade. You don't have to mind the W part much as there is no winter in the Philippines. 30 or 40 is the usually accepted viscosity for local conditons.

    I use Rimula X on my Dmax. IMO, as long as you change your oil regularly, its okay not to invest on those high end (and take note expensive) oils. If they offer them discounted however, its always good to let your engine taste some class A oil. hehehe.

    maybe 2008, for me even with the current flatform but with a 4JH-1
    engine option will do.
