    hi sir Niky,
    So safe to say that the new 2014 City is now reliable?

    My opinion is old or new City, they are all reliable naman. Sure there were some CVT issues but di naman lahat nag-encounter ng problems. I had one CVT for years and it didn't give me any headaches.

    BTT: Again if you are comparing Yaris and City, hands down winner ang City. Mas bang to the buck sya eh. Maybe this would be a factor. The City, you need to bring in for service every 10K / 6 months. Ang Yaris, every 5K / 3 months.

    do we have to worry about the cvt of Honda? and i believe that Yaris came from a very reliable engine platform.I own a vios before.

    hi is Mguy and Niky one person lang? hehe sorry na confuse ako.

    so for Honda top up top up lang using fully synthetic?

    to be honest, i don't after the toys inside a car.
    I prefer that a car that needed no major repair due to common issue like engine, transmission etc.
    May history kasi CVT ng honda kaya im skeptic with the new model..

    ive visited HCCP and also read issues regarding gear box and costs around 62K in casa, mga 3-4 members ko nabasa na nag complain reg. gear box. buti nalang yung iba nakahabol ng warranty.

    Proxy lang ako ni Niky. Nobody can match Niky's technical expertise dito.

    Yes, they do.

    I don't blame you and its right that you are doing the proper research. However, there are thousands of City running around the metro and surely enough, a minute percentage would encounter such problems. And if perchance, you are lucky to fall in that percentage, you now have the Lemon Law (RA 10642) to help you.

    yan ang iniiwasan ko, the hassle. hehehe. kaya as early as now, i want to choose a less problematic vehicle brand.

    Hello Guys, plan ko din po kasi bumili ng first bnew car ko then nakita ko tong post na to.

    How about Toyota Yaris 1.3 MT (720K) and Honda City 1.5 MT (756K)?

    Sa tingin ano mas okay? Mas feel ko manual, maaga naman pasok ko kaya di ko inaabutan ang rush hour. Makati - Dasma Cavite ang travel ko palage. Gusto ko yung HB kaso iniisip ko 36K lang ang difference nila, add lang ako may 1.5engine na ko. Ask ko lang sana expert advise nyo sa dalwang Car na yan in terms of FC, Resale Value, etc. Sana matulungan nyo ko magdecide. TIA

    ^^^ for such a small difference, I'd go with the car with a more powerful engine.

    IIRC no "pearl" white released for the City. (GM6)

    Maybe taffeta white?

    Yaris or City
