    ok naman ang Sentra & Familia... just go for the one which is better maintained.

    we own both types but it's of the 2nd trim levels. '98 familia gli (1.6L) and '00 sentra ex saloon (1.4L). here's how i compare them:

    familia:
    -stronger and more responsive engine (obviously since it has a bigger engine in our case)
    -better handling
    -has power side mirrors
    -fat steering wheel
    -nice transmission
    -just right power steering feel (not too light, not too heavy)
    -good sound system
    -has anti-glare for the rear view mirror
    -3 speed wiper (with intermittent)

    sentra:
    -more fuel efficient (again perhaps because of the smaller engine)
    -softer ride
    -more roomy (practically all aspects)
    -better sound deadening
    -has rear back-up sensors
    -better aircon
    -clear headlamps
    -has rear defogger

    problems:
    familia:
    -usual wear and tear (replaced battery, brake pads/shoes, belts, gaskets, oil seals)
    -refaced rotors and drums
    -overhauled power steering pump
    -replaced transmission bushings, power steering hose and clutch master cylinder
    -replaced engine supports (2)
    -replaced shock mounting (1)

    sentra:
    -usual wear and tear
    -replaced clutch assembly (twice)
    -replaced shocks
    -frequent headlight bulb (dim) replacement

    all things considered, i'd prefer the sentra. but i'll miss the speed and go-kart feel of the familia. hehehe. maybe a 1.6L sentra can offset this. good luck!

    IMO, Sentra would be a better choice. The fact that they are being sold cheap and there are a load of parts available.
