    Gusto ko rin ang Mazda 3, no doubt. 3 years free PMS nga pero mas mahal naman so bawi lang.

    Mazda 3 1.5 (945,000) is cheaper than the Toyota Altis 1.6V (999,000).

    Ang daming parang hindi man lang nagreresearch.

    For those who can't be bothered to do a bit of reading before parting with close to a million (or most likely borrowing close to a million), here are some facts:
    - The Mazda 3, along with all other Mazda vehicles, have free maintenance for 3 years. That includes parts and labor for almost everything (oil, filter, fluids, etc). If you will put each maintenance visit at 4000 pesos every 6 months/10000 km, that's P72,000 of savings.
    - The Mazda 3 1.5V is speced similarly to the Altis 1.6V (both have climate control, push start ignition, 4-wheel disc brakes, Bluetooth connectivity, etc). The Mazda is only P945k. The Altis is P999k. Therefore, the Mazda 3 is cheaper.

    Other things to consider:
    - Once warranty expires, maintenance of the Mazda should be similar to the Altis if you have it done at any reputable shop outside casa. Parts for the Mazda also exist in Banawe. But since both the Altis and Mz3 are new, parts are pretty hard to come by.
    - The Altis is much more spacious than the Mazda 3
    - The Altis has noticeably more power (esp in low revs) than the Mazda 3
    - From my experience, the Mazda has sharper steering and more planted suspension
    - Historically, the Altis has better resale value over the same-gen Mazda 3. Most likely that this will be the case with this generation.

    I'm not against Toyota. The Altis is a great car. I am against uninformed forumers basing their decisions and recommendations on outdated/erroneous data.

    I'm also looking at these two cars and am still torn. It's space and power vs. handling and soul. Pretty hard choice but I think you can't go wrong with either.

    about Mazda's yojin3..

    "Assuming that it will cost P4,000 for one regular maintenance session and that it is done twice a year, that would just equate to P24,000 discount."

    "The more costly PMS appointments usually occur after the 3 year period, assuming 20,000 km traveled each year."

    Erroneous data indeed. How can you live with yourself if you're against people like yourself?

    Pardon the math. Multiplied it by 3 twice. But 24k is still 24k.

    Regardless of the number, the message is the same.

    Hahahahaha. Yes the message is the same. Erroneous data is erroneous data, no matter what. Simple math is simple math.

    Mazda 3 avg pms cost is around 7k (based on my experience). So around 42k for 3 years.

    Malaking bagay ba ung resale value? Ako kasi I dont consider it in my decision. A lot of the buyers kasi resale value ang iniisip kaya toyota pinipili. Di pa nga binibili ung kotse, pagbenta na ang nasa isip. Nothing wrong with that if u see ur car as just an appliance.

    One should based the savings on the PMS cost of the car being compared, in this case a Toyota. Toyota PMS cost is usually cheaper.

    Hmmm ... ... ... 4,000 x 3 x 3 = 36,000, not 24,000 ...
