    ... beats me!

    kung yan lang ang issue ng current almera...
    i can live with that.
    heh heh.

    btw,
    the air-cooled beetle's front drum has the bearings in the drum also.
    them bearings would last decades of carefree (careless?) driving.

    Maybe because they aren't sealed enough to endure the usual hub-deep flood-prone route of the driver. Or maybe the spindle bolt wasn't torqued properly after brake servicing - most if not ALL mechanics i've encountered does not use torque wrench, nasanay sa tancha. Or made in non-democratic Tsina, quality not at par with the usual OEM koyo, paraut, nsk, skf, timken.

    bili na! then change the bearings out immediately w/ the brands 12vdc mentioned

    been reading the almera groups on FB... it seems that's the only issue...

    Salamat po sa lahat ng mga nagbigay ng opinion regarding my query... Excited ako whichever I will get between the two... Still 50/50 pa rin between Blue Metallic Almera and White RS CVT BT. The family man inside me screams Almera while my daily workman mind shouts the Brio. The price difference naman is not that big considering i'll pay it in just 24 to 36 months. I can't resell the Spin (for now) since this will be used as our coding car. Mahirap magcommute with the current situation as well as the seeable future (coding ulit). Yes it's hard to maintain it since ang hirap maghanap ng parts, but the Fuel efficiency can negate that (14km/ltr average FC). Keep on posting... let's break the 50/50 until the P.O arrives.

    do you have any doubts the almera can't be used as a daily?

    These two are both small cars and light to drive. I see no difference between them. I donít even think the Brio will offer a better drive.

    i just paid 5k reservation for almera 1.5 e a/t, white

    price&practicality 10 out of 10

    brio is a small car. if your daily commute involves highways then the choice is clear get the almera

    if purely driven in small city like angeles pampanga then the brio would suffice

    Malamig AC ng Almera, brio is mainit kung tirik ang araw. That should break the 50/50

    Also mababa ground clearance ng brio at 137mm, puro gasgas na yung brio ko, while almera is 150mm.
    Ang spin ay 137mm - maganda ang makina ng fiat, matibay/matipid, pero drivetrain ay sirain mahirap/mahal pyeza kya ingatan mo while wlapa kapalit.
