    Hi Guys,

    Im a newbie, and seeking advice on my first car. I saw a 93 Model Mazda Astina (Automatic) and 93 model Mazda Astina (Manual). Please advice me which one is better in terms of gas consumptions, parts available, cost of maintenance. Is Mazda Astina a good choice for a newbie like me?

    I would really appreciate your advice!

    One disappointed Astina owner here ...



    Kung mapilit ka naman sir, get the unit with manual transmission for better (than the A/T) fuel consumption.

    Most under-chassis parts (except for shock mountings) are shared with its sedan counterpart, so sourcing them out should not be a problem.

    Madami Mazda/Ford shops sa Banawe at Pasay.

    However, it does not shared anything from body panels to dashboard/door sidings so expect headache if ever one of those relevant parts breaks on you.

    Magsasawa ka din sa pop-up headlights.

    They're just a fad.

    Ganun po ba sir.. ano po bang magandang car para sa newbie like me with a limited budget... I saw a kia pride cd5 (hatchback) around 55k-60k.. is this a good car in terms of maintenance, parts availability and reliability?

    I would really appreciate any suggestions. This will help me decide on what to buy for my hard earned cash

    For a 60K budget:

    Nissan Sentra LEC
    Mazda 323 (sedan)
    Mitsubishi Lancer (singkit)
