    My brother is sold on buying a 91 Pride, the hatchback type. Now, we're very used to Lancers so we're not sure what to expect with this car.
    Can you guys give any comments about it? Fuel-consumption, handling, speed, engine, reliability, air-con, etc etc.

    thanks in advance.

    under powered especially with the aircon on.
    fuel consumption is relatively better than most economy cars on the road.
    aircon is just so-so.

    based on my experience in a 98 Kia Pride sedan.

    HB type. eto yung CD-5?
    excellent fuel consumption. kaya yata 18 kms/liter nun. very good for city driving. medyo alagaan nyo lang maigi specially yung aircon dahil medyo mabilis masira ang compressor nya.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Now, another question.

    Would you guys recommend it for daily driving and some occasional (possibly weekly) trips to San Pablo, Laguna?

    Thanks again.

    experiences ko sa CD 5 before, kapag highway nakaka 20-25km/liter ako. Pero sa city mga 11km/li lang. Yung aircon nung CD5 ko dati is ESL and it sux big time. Kung alaga ang CD 5 mo, pwede na pagtiyagaan sa highway. Di naman sobrang bagal. Nakaka 110kmh ako dati everyday from Bulacan to Manila. Sagad ko is 155kmh going to Subic. OK ito sa baha. Di tumitirik. Medyo magaan lang talaga ang buong auto.

    For city driving, it does the job and reliable & cheap to maintain.

    As for week-end trips, just stay away from the air turbulence coming from trucks & busses and you'll be fine, if only bored from the low cruising speed.

    Well, if you have around 200k to 250k budget for a car, I would strongly suggest in buying a Sentra. Its one of the best value for your money cars on the 2nd hand market today. Honda & Toyota cars might also be good value but its priced higher than a similiar age & model Nissan car.
