I'm about to buy my first brand new car, and I have narrowed down my options between Isuzu's Crosswind XT, and Mitsubishi's Adventure GLS.
For performance, creature comforts, looks and acquisition costs, I'm ok with both. Kaya ngayon, it's all down to which car is easier/cheaper to maintain (and therefore sell in the future), and is more fuel efficient.
I'm looking at both auto journalists' reported kilometers-per-liter, and manufacturer's quoted figures for fuel consumption. Pero gusto ko sanang malaman galing sa mga ka-forum nating may first hand experience sa later models ng both adventure at crosswind. Kumusta po ang efficiency ng dalawang ito sa experience nyo?
As much as possible sana, gusto kong sa dealership ang maintenance. Ang plano ko sa ngayon ay ibenta ang sasakyan after 5 or 6 years of ownership. May experience kayo mga sir at maam kung alin mas mura i-maintain? Eg. gulong, change oil, brakes, clutch at ibang consumables? Para kasing umiiwas yung mga sales reps na magbigay ng price list ng kanilang maintenance services, at sagutin in full detail yung mga tanong ko about this.
Generally po, gagamitin ko ito for travelling from Naga to Metro Manila and back (8 -9 hours one way).
