One advantage of the manual is the ability to 'engine brake' going down steep slopes (yung parking ng Rustan's Shangri-la matindi). I don't know if the A/T Strada can engine brake using the L setting because I haven't driven one.

Yung A/T Fortuner relies entirely on the brakes going downhill. Even using L, bumubulusok pababa.

pards, hindi maganit ikambio yung strada mo?
lumaki biceps ko kakagamit ng pickup ko
the technicians sa casa said it was normal ang gagaan din daw yun eventually
That was 5 1/2 years ago

Shifting is problem-free so far and has been very smooth. Then again, my unit is only 4x2. No experience with the 4x4 which might have a different(?) transmission config.

Just came from NLEX to Manila tonight. Even after 3 years, enjoy i-drive at high speeds. Ini-imagine ko na Evo yung sasakyan ko, hehe.

When we had our L200 pickup, my brother would always complain of the stiff clutch.

You may also want to check the owner's manual on what type of lubricant to use on the Strada's transmission. Isuzu KB's up to the TFR TFS series use engine oil in the transmission. Don't have an idea of what the newer models of Isuzu pick ups use for their transmission.

We once had a mistake of putting 90 gear oil in our old KB's transmission. It was hard to shift especially when the engine and transmission were cold.

Di ko alam what the casa uses for trans oil e
But it feels the stick shift is fighting you

btw, a friend na nahuli for overspeeding sa slex told me galit daw sa strada ang speed cam
Puro daw sila naka strada nagseminar sa lipa heehee

I think it is the old school vehicles that uses motor oil. My classic uses motor oil for tranny and gear oil for transfer case

Alam ko nga rin mga old school vehicles ang gumagamit ng motor oil kasi standard dati at simple lang. Eh ngayon kumplikado daw kaya kailangan ng special oil specifically made for transmission, gear oil etc.

While surfing around I saw that ironman has comfort shocks- they call it comfort ride nitrogas shocks. This might be a good option for those wanting better rides for their pickups or suvs

yes, mine is completely stock
No need palitan ng shocks
The softer suspension did improve the cornering din

Could be the clutch release bearing. The L200 pick up has been known to be notorious with regards to premature wear of clutch release bearings.

I was at the MIAS 2013 and saw the Wildtrack Ranger, ang wafu. The chicks were an add-on to the great scenery.

Does the Hyundai Santa Fe back home have a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine?

Baka yung mga first generation Forrester kasi yung third ok naman parang Escape ang size.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subaru_Forester

Yung ngayon medyo boxy ng konti ang harap at malakas ang makina kung turbocharged.

If it's a Subaru, expect a not so good mileage. Average mo na yung 5-6 km/liter.

Sa states yung minivans ang for soccer moms while Subarus are identified with lesbians.

I had a Forrester XT while living in the states, the turbo it had was more for torque. Pang hatak siguro and stability in wet or snowy roads.
