    Get the Civic instead of the City VX+

    Ayun, pasok pa pala! Sorry, was not able to personally check

    I'd go with the Civic 1.8 if the budget is 1.2M

    He's still young, doc. Lots of time to recover. Plus he'll still have the leftover savings from his 3M

    My province is in Batangas BTW. How important is it to buy a car with side air bags? Yun kasi yung una kong criteria though not sure kung tama ba na yun dapat una kong hinahanap sa car.

    So far eto yung list of cars na napili ko na may side air bags:
    Cruze Sail LT
    Ford Focus
    Honda City RS Navi
    Mazda 2 Sedan R
    Mazda 3 Sedan V
    Toyota Corolla Altis G and V

    If hindi naman kasi important yung side air bags, I can buy a cheaper new cars worth less than 700k.

    Donít get me wrong pala sa idea when I said I want to attract girls... itís just that mas madami kami mapupuntahan and mas convenient instead of commute pag may nililigawan na ako... not to boast my car to the girl. Aethetic is not my primary concern so hindi ko target yung mga worth lampas 1.2M....
    My parents have isuzu crosswind but it is manual type. I plan to drive AT.
    Side airbags are nice to have, and if you really want one, then go ahead.

    But between a City VX+ with side airbags and a Civic 1.8E, dun na ko sa Civic.

    Bigger car, more space, better drive, better looks. Hindi naman bitin ang safety features ng Civic - 2 airbags, ABD, traction control.

    If side airbags are really a must, I'll go for a VW Jetta.

    in my line of work, we think along the lines of "worst case scenario".

    That's a requirement ata in your field of work hehehe!

    Pero yes, car ownership is a money sink. TS has to also be reasonably sure that he can handle the cost of ownership. There are always risks involved naman, the main thing is to take those risks into consideration when making decisions.

    TS appears to be a total newcomer to the world of automobiles.
    i think he is "drowning in all this advice".

    hinga muna..
    inhale... exhale...!

    He buys a car in cash. Worst case scenario, he has to sell the car at a 20-30% loss from sticker price.

    He buys real estate property on a loan. Worst case scenario, he has to sell it and find someone to assune balance. Most likely may kita pa yan through capital appreciation.
