    lynx rs - if you're looking for fun & sporty driving

    civic or altis - if you're looking for the tried and true

    mazda3 - if you're looking to be noticed (just released)

    optra - if you're looking at value for the money

    i'll get the altis for quality and resale value later on, civic is ok but not as nicely equipped as the altis.

    Mazda 3.
    RS
    Civic
    Altis
    in that order.

    pero if i were you, i'll go midsize maski 2nd hand, accord, camry? corona,
    iba kasi ang feel ng midziser, hindi nararattle kapag 140 kph.

    and since were taking about 2nd hand, mura na rin lang ang mga mid 90s BMW 3 series (get the 318 and up model)

    There is an Optra 1.8 available already. Mazda 3 would be nice but parts and maintenance would be high since only few dealers. Then there's the question of reliability, remember they pulled out before leaving countless Mazda owners to themselves.

    Civic or Corolla would be a safe choice.

    in this order:

    mazda3 - the best looking compact sedan out there. bar none. feature packed and handles superbly (a feedback that we got from those who were already able to test drive this).

    lynx RS - pocket rocket! very ideal for our stop and go traffic here! just point and accelerate! its looks is what i describe as "subtle aggressive".

    optra - best bang for the buck! the cheapest compact sedan that offers the most number of goodies! btw, a 1.8L version (with leather setas & chrome plate holder) is already out.

    corolla/civic - if you want to be part of the bandwagon.

    mazda never pulled out before, they were pushed (shoved) by ford.

    napanood ko ang interview ni mr francisco (motors) sa ANC.

    wawa naman ang sentra hindi na nabanggit hehe. anyway, my choices wld only be the ff:

    1. mazda 3
    2. jimny
    3. altis G
    4. lynx RS
    5. civic

    i suggest you choose the one that you fell in love with or makes you're heart skip a beat. otherwise, you'll just end up convincing yourself everyday that you made the right choice but still wishing that you had your true love. hehehehe
