    The Civic also has better elbow room. Subcompacts only grow in length, but rarely in width.

    The current length of subcompacts is enough, I don't see the need for a longer Vios or City in the future since legroom is already very generous.

    Let's say, we translate it to Toyota vehicles. Will you choose the previous gen Vios or the previous gen Altis?


    that's a tough call... it's exactly the same predicament as the civic versus the city.

    i'd go for the civic. years ago, i used to drive the gd jazz and it was no match for the fd in terms of ride and comfort. actually, i even find it more enjoyable to drive the fd as opposed to getting around in our monty

    btw, i haven't really thought much about it but i feel our fd is a bit roomier than our monty (interior wise).

    You can always check out OLX to survey for prices. 430k will already get you a 1.8S which is a much better buy than the 1.8V.

    I would also suggest getting an '09 model or newer, as this is the facelifted FD which IMO looks better.

    Is there a big difference in the maintenance cost with the civic FD AT and MT? How reliable po ba are the civic FD in the 2nd hand market? Also, someone is selling a 2011 1.8 FD with a 100k mileage and a 2008 model with a 50k mileage. Which one is a better buy?

    Lets face it. Its a 2nd hand car, there is no guarantee. Thorough inspection and test will increase the probability of getting a better car.

    You're trading an expensive, fairly regular expense (clutch change) against another fairly regular, but cheaper expense (transmission fluid change) and a possible one-time-big-time expense (AT overhaul).

    I'd worry more about the cost of suspension and brake components on the FD.

    I'd go for a 1.8 MT. Absolutely fantastic cars to drive.
