I totally agree that a driver will play a key role in determining the performance of a vehicle. Specially if you are driving a manual vehicle. I also would like to point out that going up via Kennon is much harder than via Marcos highway. Kennon is practically 2 lanes only while marcos highway is 3 sometimes 4 lanes. the grade in kennon is much steeper than Marcos highway the roads in kennon is also of poor quality compared to Marcos Highway. and in Kennon, the visible stretch is normally only about 150 meters. So you have to accelerate much faster or else you will be overtaking in a blindspot which is very dangerous. The event that I describe happened only this April 2007. We were on our way to Mt. Data which is 100kms farther from baguio along the Halshema highway.
    Anyway Im not asking you to take my word for it. It was just a first hand experience of mine. Im quite sure that I am not only one who have seen a crosswind having problems going uphill in a winding road in a convoy. Good luck on you crosswind purchase.
    I can say a first hand experience kung ikaw mismo nag-drive ng crosswind. And I think AT tranny yung crosswind na yun! Depende talaga yan sa driver kasi may nabasa akong thread dito na he overtook several fortuners using his crosswind on the way up to Baguio!

    but am sure mas mababa ung price nya. i've already mentioned the difference of XT with XTi above.
    as for the radiator problem, like what niky has mentioned, na ayos na. un nalang tlgang maugong na makina ang mapapansin. but if you're used to diesel, tolerable naman.

    good luck sa purchase!

    Thank you very much sa info. MACpod and niky. Peace!

    i also had alot of inquiries re:crosswind. you can search for my previous threads. thing is majority puro negative ang remarks (i bet you even read some of the responses here aswell).

    but still i went for it bec of it's proven fuel efficiency+tibay ng makina. yes the third row seats are already front facing, so that's another factor.
    ride has improved bec of its leaf springs din. as for speed, since regalo ko nman ito sa parents ko, di nman nila kelangan makipagovertake palagi. moderate speed lang palagi sila. when i asked them about it, they were very complacent sa performance. so that makes me very happy and satisfied.

    good luck sa car hunting mo.

    Sir, maraming salamat po sa info. Laking tulong talaga mga info na makukuha dito sa thread ba to. Thanks again guys..

    Reading the last page naalala ko yung Baguio experience with my XUVI(ako mismo nag dadrive). Ewan ko lang baka nga driving style ko mali pero onga bagal na bagal ako at parang ang bigat. Naalala ko pag naka segunda parang sumisigaw na ng todo yung makina pero ang kupad(tsaka parang nakakaawa yung engine sound), pag pinasok ko naman sa tirsera para naman wrong gear. Medyo nainis ako sa crosswind ko nun pero ang maganda sobrang tipid naman ng konsumo ng krudo Yung fulltank ata back and forth kami madami pang tira..And btw at 95K mileage hanggang ngayon very very reliable parin.

    Sir ilan po passenger nyo? loaded ba? kasi balak kong iakyat sa Baguio yung sportivo ng father ko, pero siguro mga 5 passenger, kaya kaya? Kasi ayoko na dalhin yung corrola ko medyo binitin ako dati nung last visit namin doon and medyo malakas sa gas. Yun lang rin ang hanga ko sa crosswind sobrang tipid sa diesel, ang pinaka-highest ko na nakuha is 17 km/l!
