    Meron bang Subaru dealership sa inyo? Kung wala magiging sakit sa ulo lang. CRV 2.0 ayaw? O kaya Tucson CRDi.

    sa yearly nababalita binaha kotse eh mahirap magtiwala. Sugal ang 2nd hand. Mahirap magtiwala sa panahon ngayon.

    Pero dapat may ipon kayo. Kasi nakakapikon yung mga nababasa ko pasalo. Bibili kotse hindi naman kaya bayaran.

    They would sponsor up to 500k and the remaining amount would be handled by me.

    I'll be selling my 2014 Focus M/T to add to the amount and also to change to A/T due to traffic. I still cannot decide whether to get a brand new car or second hand(mint) car.

    I won't be upgrading to an SUV/MPV since I still prefer driving a sedan and also don't need the space they provide.

    Please help me pick which car to buy. Here are my Top picks for the cars, I prefer it to be below 1M.
    1. 11th gen Altis 2.0V (700-800k)
    2. Mazda 3 Skyactiv 2.0V (600-700k)
    3. 9th gen Civic 2.0 (500-600k)
    4. 10th gen Civic 1.8 (800-900k)
    5. Focus Ecoboost (600-700k)
    6. Honda City(Brand New)
    7. Mazda 2(Brand New)

    My preference would be
    1. Easy to Drive Daily especially on tight spaces
    2. Fuel Consumption
    3. Space for 4-5
    4. Parts and Maintenance

    TIA
    Ayaw mong Accent 1.6 CRDI AT? mahal na ang gas

    Subaru Forester? ... Prepare to budget for evaporator replacement ... It will almost always breakdown within 3-5 years ... It's not a matter of if but when ...

    If you can be happy with a Honda or Toyota, get them instead of a Subaru or Mazda ...

    Based on the replies, its better to stick with honda/toyota. Add ko sana Lancer GTA but we have a bad experience with Mitsu. Flooded units is not a problem here as long as Cebu Plate Unit yung kukunin since wala masyado baha dito. So its down to Altis 2.0/1.6 and Civic FB/FC. BTW, planning to get a white color.

    Of course Brand New is best option if budget is not a problem. However, I think 2nd Hand is also a great option as long as you check everything thoroughly to avoid any hassle. Great thread
