    16-17 is only possible on long highway trips. In my Laguna-Manila-Laguna commute, the only time I hit 16 was at 3am, using the choke knob on the dash (below the steering wheel, on the left) as a primitive form of cruise control. I drove those deserted streets at just 60 km/h the whole way home...

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

Pinagpipilian namin ang mga nabanggit na modelong ito all diesel at matic syemre para ke misis. Ako napupusuan ko ang alterra at fortuner. Mga prds baka meron kayong mai share sa mga nababasa ko kase puro mga negatives kaya natatakot akong magkamali ng pagpili.


    I suggest Isuzu Sportivo or mas maganda ang Alterra!

    Ano ba talaga ang seat material ng Sportivo. I always assumed it was leather (considering how expensive the vehicle is) pero sabi sa brochure ay vinyl daw yung upholster even in the most expensive variant. So alin ba talaga?

    I have vinyl seats in my daily driver and genuine leather seats in the other vehicle. Sobrang init sa likod nung vinyl compared sa leather, eh. hehehe.

It's not a necessity, according to some, but it will definitely help increase the life of your turbo.
    off topic

    paging niky, rsnald, x-wind,

    Just some queries :

    1. Yung turbo ng bagong XUV MT, Low charge pa rin ba?

    2. I have a 2004 XTRM MT, can I have it installed with the turbocharger na naka install sa bagong XUV MT?

    3. Any problems and what will they be?

    4. Kung pwede kabitan, saan kya meron available?

    Sa mga masters, thanks in advance!

    Yeah, why is that Sportivo's 3rd row seat facing sideways? Isn't it supposed to face front?

    I test drove a Sportivo A/T during the 1st Phil. Intl. Motor Show as I am also seriously considering getting one. I have to say that the way it accelerates is quite disappointing. I had to floor the accelerator pedal just to get some decent speed at the start. But as it cruises along, it picks up speed but slowly. Ganito rin kaya kabagal yung M/T version?

    Tungkol sa mga previous posts dito na nagsasabi na (1) maingay at (2) matagtag ang Crosswind, based on my test drive = HINDI. Hindi naman ito noisy at di rin siya matagtag.

    OK naman ang Crosswind sa lahat ng aspects. Yung nga lang mabagal ang pag accelerate. I think I will have to test drive an M/T variant to compare.

    BTW, about the FC, it will get better since it's only on it's break-in period. I got a high of 17+ when I took my father's 2006 sportivo to Pampanga.

    hONESTLY, NG bumili ako ng Sportivo 2007 A/T eh nabagalan ako or nanibago ako, sanay kasi ako sa MT eh, pero, pagtagal tagal ko na syang na drive, nakadevelop ako ng technique or natanggap ko na sya na ganun ang A/T, at in all, satisfied ako sa sportivo 2007 A/T.
    Front facing nga pala ang sportivo 2007 ko....

    Di rin sya ganun kaingay at katagtag.....

    Ang di ko lang nasusubukan eh kung okay iakyat ng Bagiuo???

    oh! by the way meron lang po ako tanong sa mga users sa pinas kasi during 1st service which is 1500kms at free labor daw un kaso nga lang nung magbayad na meron naman pala service charge approx PHP500 kaya umabot sa PHP2,900. tanong ko meron ba talaga service charge at labor charge? secondly, anong engine oil po ba ang magandang gamitin para sa 2007 sportivo with turbo charge at euro2 compiant and how much/L.

    thanks
    A/T po ba sportivo nyo?....okay b yun paakayat ng Bagiuo?
