    Looks-mazda 3 look for 2.0 model...

    Interior Space - sentra

    Ease of maintenance (parts, know how and etc) - it’s corolla among the 3 but im not saying mahirap yung 2... lamang lang talaga si toyota.

    Fuel consumption-???

    Overall i will choose mazda 3 2.0 model... just join the mazdatech community, a lot of them can help you source those surplus and original mazdaspeed parts...

    Goodluck!

    Depende din yan sa experience mo sa car ownership, lalo na sa maintenance. Importante talaga na makapag-tanong ka sa mga kaibigan, kamag-anak, at mekaniko.
    Yung budget mo na 150k-190k, kasama na ba dun yung preventive maintenance? Magtabi ka din ng budget to keep your car road-worthy and safe.

    Ok naman experience ko sa Sentra (1992, 1996) at Corolla (1990, 1999, 2003), pero wala pa akong experience sa Mazda.
    - Sa Sentra, mas madalas na may pinalitan akong suspension parts. Wala akong naging problema sa makina, basta regular maintenance & tune-up lang.
    - Sa Corolla, naging problema ko yung nagbabawas ng langis (2003). Sabi ng mekaniko, kelangan i-top overhaul at i-check ang piston ring. Pero naibenta ko naman bago ako nagka-gastos.

    Advise ko lang na bago ka bumili, humanap ka muna ng mapag-kakatiwalaang mekaniko. Kasi you are buying a 10+ year old na kotse, siguradong may ipapagawa ka dun, regardless kung anong brand.

    Sa totoo lang almost inapplicable na yung mahirap ang piyesa ngayon. I have a Ford Focus, dami dito nagsasabi mahirap daw hanapan ng piyesa at mahal pa. Dumating ang panahon, kinailangan ko na hanapan, madami naman pala nag bebenta sa car club sa facebook, orig na, mura pa. Kahit gaano ka random at liit ng part, meron sila.

    In short, sa parts walang problema na. Ang dami ng sources. Ang poproblemahin mo na lang kung may alam ba kayo na marunong gumawa malapit sa inyo.
    Ok po thanks po gandang advice po

    Still depends. Just because its a Toyota doesn't mean its not in a crappy condition.

    Check maintenance history and car condition. Stay away from modded cars (sakit sa ulo lang iba nyan).

    Kahit gaano pa katibay yang kotse tapos buraot mag-alaga yung owner, sure yan dami sira yan. Also, as much as some would say “lady-owned” but I would think twice. Most ladies know nothing about car maintenance.

    2.mazda 3 2004-2008 model
    3.toyota corolla altis 2004-2008 model

    Here are the issues i have heard from friends and mechanic. Totoo po ba?

    1.nissan- "mahal piyesa, mahina pang ilalim"
    2.mazda 3 - "mahal piyesa, lakas sa gas, mahirap hanapin piyesa"
    3.toyota corolla altis -" di pa pasok sa budget mo"

    i used to have a 97 sentra. i have a 2003 altis.

    it's true. altis parts in general, are easier to find. cheaper, too. probably because there are more of them on the road.
    but we don't have our cars fixed every weekend. paminsan-minsan lang.
    i have no parts problem when i have my altis repaired in banawe.
    time and again, i see lancers and sentras taking a bit more time, as the mekaniko takes a bit more time, looking for their parts.

    fuel appetite.
    altis might have an edge.
    but much of it will probably depend on one's right foot and one's wallet's capability.
    the MT variant will give more km/li than the equivalent AT model.

    riding comfort.
    test-drive the cars, po.
    sentra is known for being a "kotse ng babae" dahil malambot daw ang manibela at pidal. personally, i find these an advantage.
    but this is subjective on the individual person. try the cars out for size. biggie persons might prefer one over the other.

    for some reason, the altises seem to command a higher price than the sentras.
    there are also more altises in the for-sale ads than sentras.

    bottom line.
    altises are probably easier to maintain than sentras, even as the initial acquisition price is higher.
    but these are old cars. expect significant additional expenses in fixing them up.

    mazda?
    i have no experience with the brand.

    and oh!
    "beware the ex-taxi!"
    i once asked, what car is immune from being an ex-taxi or a service vehicle.
    the answer: "get a two-door".
    heh heh.
