    Basta ako pag dating sa gawang hapon na sasakyan, HONDA pa rin. *okay*
  • medyo last kasi sa choices ko yung honda city eh. hindi ko type yung design ng body niya. sa mga nakita kong reviews dito sa net...ok daw sa gas consumption ang vios. pero masakit lang isipin na may mga taxi na vios. ok din sana yung specs ng mazda kaso hindi ko alam kung ok ba ang mazda pagdating sa durability and stuff....hay naku...dumudugo na talaga utak. :depressed:

    Hindi ka ba pwede mag-upgrade at bumili ng accord?
  • mahal na masyado ang accord. tapos na ako sa porma, bilis at kung ano ang mas sikat. practical na hindi naman lugi ang habol ko. pinag-iisipan ko kasi kung alin talaga ang ok ipalit sa civic ko....nagustuhan ko kasi yung civic ko eh...pero kelangan na kasi hanap na ng bago. let's say me budget ka ng 800k...alin ang mas pipiliin mo? (1.6E ng altis, 1.5G ng vios, mazda 3 S variant o 1.3 S CVT ng honda city):confused:

    Boto talaga ako sa Honda dahil apat na sasakyan na ang nabili ko sa kanila at ni minsan hindi ako nagkaproblema sa makina. Matatag talaga. *okay*
  • GIven your choices:

    Mazda 3: Best in handling and driving feel. Better rear headroom then the Altis. 1.6L engine could use a little more HP though but it isnt bad.

    Altis: No-nonsense vehicle... somewhat bland but it does get good fuel economy and the resale value will be good. It's due for replacement next year though.

    Vios: Light vehicle but is pretty a preppy and can get good performance with some minor suspension work. Interior is somewhat tight though.

    City: Good space useage (better space then the Vios) and the IDSI engine coupled with the CVT tranny is efficient in fuel... I still prefer the Honda Jazz by a mile though...

    Just to add... all local Jap and even the Korean cars nowadays are pretty reliable... we've had 6 Nissans and a handful of Toyotas, Mitsus and a couple Hondas go through my family in the past 15 years and they all performed well in the reliability factor. The key is really on the maintainance of the owner.

    In the end... test drive and go where your heart and wallet is. If i had a choice, i'd look at the Mazda 3 since i really like the driving feel of this car amongst the local 1600's i've tested; if i let my wallet and rational side (resale, parts and service) I will look at the Altis or a Jazz.
  • double post...
  • triple post... sorry mods.
  • I prefer, toyota than mazda, tipid na sa gas maasahan pa, japanese car still rules over the american mazda

    low downpayment low monthly payment for 60 months.


    after 60 months, total purchase price ng corolla: 1.6M Lolz

    I kid you not.
  • I'd rather buy used.

    Php180k lang ang bili ni slamm sa Corona niya. Kahit siguro masira na ang lahat dun hindi ka pa din aabot ng Php600k price ng Vios.

    Naka-executive class sedan ka pa instead of the entry level unit.

    For an Php800k budget, malamang 2nd hand Pajero na ko. Idiot-proof maintenance, economical diesel engine, wagon body (roomy), high ground clearance, and Pajero street-cred. But that's just me.

    Among your choices, the cheapest City with ULT seating will get my vote.

    Wala kasing Getz or Matrix CRDi sa choices mo.

    ...Kahit siguro masira na ang lahat dun hindi ka pa din aabot ng Php600k price ng Vios.

    Suspension and body repairs (overhaul steering rack, PS pump, flush of ATF, refurbish tie rods/rack ends/balljoints, change timing belt/water pump/oil seals, change all shocks, some spot painting and detailing, etc...) will run to around 30K++... pag may extra funds, add another 35K for a new set of 17's with new tires.... okay na. Not bad for a 9 year old car which hardly saw any major service stops with the previous owner :)
  • mazda 3 k n lng
  • i test drove the mazda3, hmm didn't like it. too heavy for me.
  • "Php180k lang ang bili ni slamm sa Corona niya. Kahit siguro masira na ang lahat dun hindi ka pa din aabot ng Php600k price ng Vios."


    well you can't bring back all those lose mileage. and the wear and tear that's already happened dun sa engine.

    not to mention, all the bangs na nareceive na ng sasakyan over the years. malay mo ba ilan beses nang pinokpok yung kaha nun. edi malambot na yun? :)

    saka, malay mo ba, ilang beses nang nag butt$3ckz with gheys inside the car?! edi ba, SOBRANG MALAS YUN? hahahah..

    Ewan ko lang. 1996 yung daily driver ko ngayon pero sariwa pa din naman. Basta maintain lang. Yung 1996 nga bago pa dito sa amin. Yung pang-coding ko 1977. Sa mom ko 1981, sa dad ko 1985 at 1965 ang sa kanya.

    Hindi naman tinapay yan na lalambot na lang through the years. You can always rebuild an engine if you want it back to spec (its not rocket science). Pero sa experience ko, most engines last a long time without a rebuild (almost 300k kms na yung 300D ko). BS lang yung ibang mechanics na puro overhaul ang gusto.

    And sobrang remote naman ng possibility na you will be spending more than Php200k to restore a vehicle. Unless siguro member ka ng Pimp my Ride. hehehehe. Php200k, makakabuo ka na ng vintage car with that amount. Typical 'modern' car restorations rarely exceed Php100k to bring up to daily driver/reliable and presentable status.

    Ditto.... We've gotten some lemon 2nd hands in the past and we never spent more than 50K to get it to good running condition. Unless of course you get something like a BMW with a busted tranny and you opt to put in a brand new tranny with the CASA. :eek:

    Same for me. Sabi nila the key to a good car is good maintenance. Well, next to the scheduled maintenance and a 1-shot free drive-in for suspension and gas -tank repair, my Civic had almost no maintenance (washer fluid and tires aside).

    After 5 years, 1-click starting, no A/C problems, no water problems, no electrical problems, and I've never been inside a servitek for alignment problems.

    OTH, our older mitsu's needed to be aligned a LOT. And my sis' altis cranks like it doesn't want to start.
