^ I can definitely attest to that. Well, except for the iPod amenity. After all, we have our Adventure for almost 11 years, and the only major repair we had on it was a slipped clutch.
Smoky as it may be (we were flagged down by the "Bantay Usok" guys in Magallanes, TWICE. As a result, it hasn't entered Metro Manila ever since.), I can safely say that it hasn't conked out on us.
~ anyway, back to topic.
the even more archaic L300 is still alive and well. why are you guys complaining about the crosswind? hehehe.
I'd bet my bottom dollar that only one factor keeps these two (Mitsubishi L300 and Isuzu Crosswind) from the axe: popularity among the masses.
But hey, Toyota (c'mon. we all know how popular Toyota is) killed off the Revo, despite it being more popular than the Adventure, and replaced it with the Innova. So why can't they do it as well?
