    You still can these days on light traffic, specially between Bicutan to Sucat. In terms of distance, SLEX/Skyway is the longest part of my daily route yet it consumes the least amount of time on average. On a normal weekday morning, it's like 30 minutes on Sucat, 10 minutes on the Skyway, 20 minutes in Makati CBD, plus another 15-20 minutes to BGC.

    These CRDi's are still under the companies' car plans and definitely not yet ours. I can only afford the cheap cars. . .hehe.
    We used to have a 1st Gen 1.3 Vios MT. It was a nimble fuel efficient car that I can weave easily thru traffic. That's why the Swift came to mind.

    Ayaw ko na. I got caught overspeeding by the radar between Sucat and Alabang.
    That was stupid of me because I already knew that there is a speed scanner along that stretch.
    Goodbye PHP 2k. Paid at LTO East Ave. for no appearance and no seminar retrieval of my license.

    But if you are planning to use the car as your daily driver, then replacing it with a more fuel efficient one has merit.

    In general, if you don't use a car anymore, better sell it and replace it with one that you will use on a regular basis.
    Actually sir it's a chicken and egg thing. . .
    We don't use it as a daily ride because it is less fuel efficient. But we definitely need it for coding days.

    Just use the Civic FD until the newer Civic model arrives as its replacement. Honda will be moving to a 1.5L turbo engine for the new Civic. It will be more efficient yet produces better power & torque than the 2.0L engine of the current Civic FB.

    Yes sir, definitely I can wait sir.
    I believe that Civic will be in the PHP 900K up range.

    And I also hope Honda will wait.

    Thanks everybody for your insights.

    I was outvoted by my wife and son to retain the FD even as a coding car. They still prefer it over the Swift.
    My wife argued on size and comfort. My son just played chorus to his mom.

    Well, that's life.
