General Comments:

The last time I rode in an Isuzu Crosswind was way back in November of 2007 when me and my dad went to Tacloban, Leyte. This car belonged to my cousin's family and it was their daily ride. The Isuzu Crosswind is notoriously known for its slow performance. Ride in it and you will really feel that the car is underpowered.

The comfort of this car is so-so, although I always rode in the front so I didn't really get to feel how it is to ride in the back. Despite its anemic engine and not so good comfort, Isuzus are known for being reliable and being durable. These cars last for a long time; in fact until now I have other friends who still have one up to now. Crosswinds are also popular here as UV Expresses (a mode of mass transportation here in the Philippines).

Sadly, their Crosswind along with their home was not spared by Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). What's more important is that they are safe. They're gonna recover, have a sturdier home and another vehicle.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
