TPC Help me choose a car! (Car Comparison Thread etc.)

  • Need your input. Wife and I are planning to buy our first car.

    Honda City 1.5 E CVT or Hyundai Accent 1.4 GL CVT

    Initially we were eyeing the Brio kasi wala pa naman kami kids ni misis pero maliit sya for me kasi malaking tao ako hehe

    Since WFH, sa January ko pa sya magagamit daily for work from Laguna to Alabang

    City of course, maganda ung Accent but not the PH specs, which is super bare and expensive at the same time.

    But wait for the 2019 City (seventh gen) since January mo pa need.

    Also check if may ISOFIX tethers yung bibilin nyo, para pag may anak na kayo for child seats. Naka sedan (Civic) ako pero I wish nag crossover ako kase ang hassle mag load/unload ng baby/car seats since sedan mababa.

  • lolz
  • hello guys, may gumagamit ba dito ng Tivoli or Kurando?
    How is it when it comes to driving, maintenance & FC
    thanks
  • ^interested din sa tivoli, bang for the buck daw yan bro.
  • Mahina ang Ssangyong dito kahit maayos naman pricing nila and specs.

    I'd go for Geely na lang if I were you.
  • Nissan Navara EL Calibre 4x2 (AT)

    vs

    Ford Ranger XLT 4x2 (AT) | (?) Wildtrak 4x2 (AT) (?)

    Ano po tingin nyo mas economical in the long run?


    Navara. You should also check Hilux and Strada. If you're going with Navara EL, choose the one with 360 camera.
  • Ford is never economical in the long run.
    Good luck sa parts and price :)
  • Ok lang ang Ford kung buy and sell - buy brand new, sell after the warranty expires.

    No doubt naman na sila ang the one of the best if not the best sa porma, tech, power and safety features.

  • Good Afternoon po, sorry kung O.T ung itatanong ko, wala akong makitang mas appropriate na lugar.

    same same bro! eyeing the Diesel Tivoli
    sana OK ang quality at parts
  • Navara and City are nonsense vehicles. Checkout Isuzu D-Max, Hilux Conquest, Ranger Raptor. In cheaper sedans, better to go Vios, Corolla, Civic and 3.
  • ^ bakit nonsense ang Navara at City?

    i used a current-gen 4x4 navara a couple of times. aside sa matigas clutch, i find it okay naman. my rant with the previous -gen city (2013?) is di ako kasya sa driver seat with the lowest seat position. i'm 5'10"

    Good Afternoon po, sorry kung O.T ung itatanong ko, wala akong makitang mas appropriate na lugar.

    November 2 mandatory na

  • Mga sir planning to buy our first car this December.

    Eyeing Suzuki Ertiga / Toyota Rush. Mostly gagamitin sa work pag weekdays, Cavite to Makati/Pasig. Need your inputs mga sir.

    Saan din pala okay na forums magbasa ng pros/cons, bukod sa tpc of course. Hehe Thanks!

    Mas ok specs ni Rush (Daihatsu) but pricier. It's also RWD. Mas mataas din ride height but matagtag. Both have abysmal power output (1.5 4AT) so don't expect power and good fuel economy.

    Kung di mo naman need ng 7 seaters I'd just go for a sub compact cross-over or sedan (Kona, Stonic, etc), . Much better highway cruiser.

  • mga sir, daming + review sa Geely china auto brand lalo na ung coolray. Im also eyeing on their new Geely Okavango. sa 3 brands/model po na ito Suzuki XL7, Maxus G50 & Geely Okavango alin po kaya ang da best bang for the bucks sa lineup na ito? TIA!
  • Lagi naman bang for the buck yung Geely.

    You get more specs for the price.

    So Geely wins against anything nowadays, except kung close minded and hate na hate ang China cars.

    yung upismet kong pinili ang avanza over ertiga, minsan napapaisip pag nakakakita ng ertiga sa kalsada. hehehe

    pero first choice niya yung avanza, so okay lang din.

    if i'm in your shoes, prolly gonna get the xpander over that two. pero yung Coolray dami positive reviews, someone even called it a budget volvo. mas blockbuster siguro yung coolray kung naka T or H badge yun. LOL
  • Plano po naming bumili ng car, based on my research Honda Brio na po ba talaga yung pinaka budget at maganda(specs) na car? (I don't really care about the appearance)

    Usually gagamitin lng pang sundo from Malolos to Valenzuel

    Budget: 600k (pero 660k yung CVT)

    I'm planning to apply to Driving school before buying a car, so should I buy MT instead???(because 60k difference is huge)
  • Nag comparison din ako and test drive ng picanto, brio, 2nd hand accent hatchback and 2nd hand suzuki swift. Pinaka okay handling for me si Brio and Swift and accept the fact na matagtag si hatchback pero enjoy i-drive.

    Kung hindi ka naman maarte try mo mag Mirage G4 GLX na manual yung brand new price niya nasa 520k+ nalang.
  • I'm planning to apply to Driving school before buying a car, so should I buy MT instead???(because 60k difference is huge)

    Kung highway ka palagi walang problema M/T.

    Otherwise it will be the greatest purchase regret you'll have.
  • Kung bata pa ako, say below 30yrs old, i would have preferred manual. Mas sporty at mas masarap laruin. But for older folks, matic lang talaga. Comfort takes premium consideration.

    Mas okay parin matuto ng MT bago mag manual, IMHO. Mas mahirap mag transition from AT to MT. Iba parin ung alam mo basic operation.

    Kung hindi ganun ka traffic sa inyo, go for MT. Driving school + YT helps.
  • Never naging investment ang sasakyan

  • For me depende sa usage ng car,
    If usually long rides tulad ng NLEX to and fro, I'd get the Manual variant pero still depende sa gear ratio kung alin mas tipid sa gas.
    If you're into spirited driving on the weekends din, get a manual

    Kung city driving naman, most here would want an automatic. tito's of mnl na tayo hehe
    Mid 20's pa lang ako and been driving manual since 18 pero gustong gusto ko na ng automatic haha

  • City bro here. Long time manual driver.

    Simula nung tumindi yung traffic umayaw nako sa manual haha. Minsan naluluha ako kapag stuck sa traffic. Mga limang patak.
  • Mas okay parin matuto ng MT bago mag manual, IMHO. Mas mahirap mag transition from AT to MT. Iba parin ung alam mo basic operation.

    Si Esmi naman AT agad since wala na kaming MT na car so pointless matuto pa.

    Para makag concentrate din sa mismong road awareness etc, vs sa pag timpla ng clutch eh.

    AT + Automatic Brake Hold is heaven sent. Di na ako mag drive ng walang auto brake hold. Balik na uli ang traffic kala mo wala ng covid haha.

    ako naman biglang pinulikat ng matindi while driving a few months back O_o
    kasalanan ko rin kasi taon narin akong walang physical exercise
    malamang AT narin bagsak ko nito sa next car purchase
  • Kapag taga north kayo lalo na kapag dumaan ka ng mindanao ave at quirino hiway ramdam mo yung feeling na extension ng edsa yung traffic lol.

    Excited na ko ma release yung 2017 suzuki swift AT ko. Kating-kati na akong i road test pa tagaytay. Hehe
