My officemate's Everest runs the maintenance cost at that range. Kahit naman Monty eh ganun din yata rinig ko sa casa.

In terms of casa, mixed bag yung Ford Global and Alabang.

Yup I think that should be average. In fact my carnival goes around 4,800 every 5k PMs plus it is such a fuel guzzler :(

Yung 8k na pms siguro pag bago yung sasakyan or mineral oil ang gamit
oil sa diesel engines already cost 5k kung synthetic and 2k plus pag mineral
oil pa lang , di pa kasama palit ng ibang parts and labor
Kung every 10t kms ( synthetic ), the cost would be 12k
Kung every 5t kms , you'd pay about 5k

you can but you are running the risk of wearing out the rest due to heavier load. Spring is usually associated with load capacity and shocks is associated with ride quality. You can choose a softer set of shocks.

I did that before in our 80's Mazda pick, I removed 2 of them. Ride quality improved a lot but maximum load carrying capacity was greatly reduced. It was fine with us since 95% of the time we don't load it with stuff more than 50kg.

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

Parang kotse pati sa kurbada
Ewan ko lang pag off road or pag naluma
