    Hi guys!

    We are currently discussing which car to buy.

    So far mas gusto nila yung suzuki alto, pero sabi ko mas maganda yung mirage, pareho naman silang matipid(although mas matipid yung alto).
    Pero ang dami kasi na hindi ko gusto dun like sobrang masikip, madaming na compromise for the sake of cutting cost at kung anu anu pang minor reasons.

    Ang akin lang kasi, hindi naman kami makakabili na ulit ng kotse agad agad kaya it would be better to get something that will satisfy at the same time reasonable and efficient pa din. I believe yung mitsubishi mirage ang pinaka perfect balance ng budget conscious at sa medyo gusto din naman ng konting upgrade.

    Kaya naman namin maafford yung mirage kaso hindi ko sila maconvice na piliin yung mirage, so need ko sana ng opinion nyu guys.
    btw eto ang intindi nila kung bakit mas ok ang alto:

    1. Ang alto ay mas mura - which is totoo naman
    2. Ang alto ay mas matipid sa gas - totoo naman pero matipid din yung mirage
    3. Porma lang daw ang mirage - well mas maporma naman talaga ang mirage kesa alto
    4. Mahal daw ang maintenance ng mirage - hindi ako naniniwala, mas mura lang talaga alto
    5. Mahirap daw maghanap ng parts sa mirage - hindi ako naniniwala

    I need your ideas regarding this argument, Anu anu ba ang major points ng mirage na worth considering over alto, wag na kayo magrecommend ng ibang models.

    TIA good day po

    what i don't want on the new alto is that it is still using the old platform. kumbaga, reskinned lang sya unlike the Eon or Mirage, which are completely new designs.

    i think the mirage or eon would offer better value because of the more modern mechanicals. maintenance-wise, pare-pareho lang halos yan. sa gasoline consumption,

    Thanks for the reply A121. Proven na din kasi nila yung platform ng alto kaya siguro ganun. Nakasakay na ako sa alto at ang pangit talaga sumakay sa likod ang sikip.

    Use the safety argument. As in walang airbags yung alto while meron ang mirage. Tapos newer chassis designs almost always equal to a stiffer chassis-in otherwords hindi medaling macrush yung frame kotse kapag sa seryosong bangaan.

    baka naman kulang talaga sa budget rason na lang nila yun masikip, hirap sa parts, maintenance etc or yung magdadala lang sa kanila from point A to point B ang kelangan nila.

    you might want to consider the hyundai eon, if kapos sa budget. mas refined sya compared sa alto.

    no question Mirage is better all around. pero kung mas maluwag financially, get the alto.

    The mirage has a 5 star crash safety rating. That's enough reason to buy it

    get the mirage. it's a newer design. the passenger space is larger. there are more mitsubishi casas than suzuki casas here. the extra expense is worth it.
    but for the same money (brand new alto or mirage), you can get a good, used toyota, mits, nissan or honda.
    who says used cars are a no-no? you just have to be "careful"..
