    Ohh.. do you think na hindi advisable para sa new driver ang MT na FD? Now I'm considering to get an AT.. XD

    Naah~ Sanayan lang yan! If this is your first car, then you will have nothing else to compare to, which means walang problema sayo mga matitigas na clutch. How do you think those who learned to drive in jeepneys and trucks fare?

    The first manual car in the family I've driven is the Revo diesel. Uptil now it is still the only manual car in the house. Many people complain na mataas at matigas daw clutch niya pero hindi naman ako nagkaproblema. When I drove my uncle's 2012 Isuzu IPV, sabi nila mataas daw ang clutch. But I found it very soft and easy to manipulate!

    Coming from a HiAce, I find the FD MT's clutch pretty soft hahahaha :D

    Balik MT na uli ako. Lol. Anyways, nabaha ba sa New Manila, QC? May unit kasi doon 06 or 07 na Manual 1.8S na Civic.

    Tanong ko lang po, may friend ako na may 09 na Civic at ang advice niya huwag daw ako mag FD kasi daw mabilis daw masira ang engine support ng modelong iyon. Sabi niya kasi wala pang 5 years nagkaprob na daw sa engine support hindi daw katulad ng Altis. Buti nalang daw at may warranty pa sila kaya napagawa ng mura-mura. Mahal daw magpagawa noon. I know, may pros and cons ang mga sasakyan brand new man or used car, wala namang perpektong sasakyan (meron ba? xD). Ang tanong ko po, magkakaproblema ba ako doon? Design flaw po ba iyon (dahil madaling masira?) o dahil hindi lang marunong gumamit yung parents ng friend ko (car iyon ng mother niya)? Mahal po ba iyon kung masira uli? Paano ko malalaman kung yung bibilhing kong used car ay may problem sa engine support?

    TIA Tsikoteers!

    Depende kasi kung saang part ng New Manila, hilly area kasi yan kaya may mas mataas may mas mababa. Although alam ko may parts na nabaha pero hindi naman mataas.

    Ang alam ko engine support ang sakit ng FD. Although for those who have replaced it already, there should be nothing else to worry about. This is much discussed in the Civic threads.

    Quick Update:

    Kakagaluin ko lang sa car land sa pasay ngayon.. at majority sa nakita kong sasakyan may kalawang sa ilalim ng upuan.. normal lang ba iyon? Sabi kasi nila moist lang daw iyo sa aircon kaya ormal lang.. kasi besides doon.. wala naman problema..

    Maganda ba ang 2011 Hyundai Accent?

    TIA!

    Well... Yung 2001 Revo namin may kaunting kalawang sa ilalim ng upuan, pero masasabi ko na matinong kotse to. It may have to do with age as well. Kung relatively new ang kotse tapos may kalawang syempre may problema na tayo, pero kung luma understandable kasi.

    Hyundai Accent? Yung 1.4? Matic ba o manual? It has been involved, lalo na mga matic, in knocking issues before as well as claims of being thirsty at the pump. But then they have quieted down in the recent months, which should mean that the ECU update made to rectify this worked. It has been selling like hotcakes despite the notorious issues, as shown by Hyundai's sales charts which should mean that its safe to buy one now. Its a thoroughly modern car with good space and a sizeable trunk, though with a rather soft suspension. If you've seen a unit you like, test drive first.

    it might be a sign that the vehicle might have gone swimming... lalo na kung maraming kalawang.. but... kalawang, ha? hindi dumi?

    1.4 na Manual. Ok lang ba kung assume balance? Paano kung 2005-2007 models? Mga ganyang years yung mga tiningnan ko e. Yung buong ilalim color kalawang.. kasi may dala akong flaslight tapos tinitingnan ko yung ilalim ng upuan. Sabi nila kaya daw nilang tanggalin iyon.. tapos normal daw iyon dahil daw sa moist. Kuhanan ko nga ng pic tapos post ko dito next time.

    Nasa sayo... Naalala ko nung binili namin yung Trooper namin nung 2003, hindi pa siya fully paid pero tinapos namin kaagad ang bayaran. If you really like the car, that's what I suggest you do.

    Kung makahanap ka ng 1st gen Accent CRDi, much better. Its much more powerful and fuel efficient, though of course not as modern and less spacious.

    2005-2007 models na maraming kalawang? May problema yun ah. I don't recall ever seeing any rust in our '04 and '05 Accord, '06 Tribute and '08 Santa Fe, all of which are within that age range. Syempre hindi naman mahirap solusyonan ang kalawang, hindi mo rin naman papansinin yan habang nagmamaneho ka. But that is a sign that it has been flooded, and the flooring neglected for some time before being serviced resulting in the rust. Though that in itself is not a big problem, you must take extra caution to make sure that it has no other problems with the electricals and mechanicals. If there were other units, I'd avoid that.
