    I am planning to buy one of these cars:
    Accord '96 VTEC
    Civic '96 VTi
    Lancer '97 and
    Cefiro '97
    because my budget is only 220K
    Which one is more suitable for daily driving and which one worth the money best? Thank you so much! I really appreciate it!

    an Accord with a manual tranny (if you can live with the higher fuel consumption compared to the civic).

    Go for the Hondas although the '96 VTi has better mileage than the Accord.

    For Lancers kasi better ang mga year 2000 up na variants, maybe you can find one within your budget.

    Can't speak about the Cefiro though, haven't come across this car before.

    Ah, ic but how much more the maintenance for an Accord compared to a civic? what about the gas consumption on a Civic VTi manual compared to a 2.0L Accord manual?
    Thanks alot for the suggestion

    My brother-in-law bought his '96 Accord (manual) 2nd hand last June. The previous owner did very good maintenance on it so no problems here yet. He does complain about the fuel consumption though (it's a 2.0 liter engine, what did you expect?). We will have to understand that this is a higher grade honda compared to the Vti so naturally most of its parts, especially the engine, have higher costs.

    If this were Toyota, its the difference between Altis and Camry.

    Forget the accord if you consider gas consumption as you said.

    I have a friend who also owns an accord and mind you, this one is much worser than the VR4 if not the same.

    How many km/L do you intend to acheive?

    Ok na ko sa Cefiro M/T. Mas ok sana kung A/T pero bihira ang A/T na below Php230k.

    Mataas iyan. Hindi kaya ng mga M-Class sedans ang ganyang figures. You're limited to compact cars or smaller.

    Ok naman ang Civic. No known major issues.
