    Hindi pa rin naka-CRDi? ano ang horsepower rating nito? 85 padin?
    Dapat palitan na model na yan! puro accesories lang binabago nila.
    Safety features, may nadagdag? ABS? airbags? o 3pt ELR seatbelts?
    Yeah its a workhorse. an overworked horse!

    guys, share ko lang ang appropriate tire pressure for 235/70 R15 tires (specially Michelin LTX tires)

    for 2-5 passengers (seating in front and 2nd row)
    front: 30 psi
    back: 30 psi

    for loaded vehicles
    front: 35 psi
    back: 37 psi

    info from isuzu manila service department

    Ako all the time naka 30psi (Dueler 235x75 R25). Okay naman regardless kung mag isa lang ako loaded di siya matagtag... pag 32psi na pinalagay ko matagtag na.
    By the way, my tires are filled with nitrogen... I don't know kung ano talaga effect nun... supposed to be mas malambot daw ang ride. Its hard to quantify.

    The Everest is better overall. Still doesn't ride like a car, a bit too soft and bouncy for me, but it's got more space, better steering, better off-road ability and a much more powerful engine. Throttle response is turgid, but when it goes, it bolts. The interior makes the Crosswind or the Fortuner look second-rate (though, this being a Ford, there are still cheap plastics inside) and the seats are much better than in either of the two. The third row, unfortunately, sits on the floor, so it's an uncomfortable position, but legroom is better.

    The Crosswind is a slug on the highway, has no ABS, terrible steering and the body rigidity of week-old spaghetti (the doors become mis-aligned after a few years because the hinge-material is too soft). It feels like a cargo truck over rough roads, and it smokes like one after a year or two. But it's economical. Oh boy is it economical. And the engine is very easy to care for outside of the casa.

    It's a matter of priorities. Needs = Crosswind. Wants = Everest. Choose accordingly.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    I heard a radio ad, advertising the "new" 2008 Crosswind with what I thought were only new trimmings/minor changes - such as a black/beige interior, 3.5" LCD audio HU (what does that mean?), new radiator grille, new spoiler and new roof rails? Does anyone have a picture of this "new" Crosswind? I'm just curious. Their website hasn't been updated yet.

    Hahahahaha! Binabantayan mo pala ako bro! Well... I was really curious since the ad seems to indicate that the new Crosswind has new amenities. But from what I heard, mukhang cosmetic changes nga lang.
