    Kailangan ko lang ng mga opinyon ninyo:

    With the rising cost of fuel today i'm thinking of shifting from SUV to Sedan. Here are the facts about my Trooper:

    1. Fuel consumption is averaged at 7km/L city driving
    2. PMS costs around 1,500.00 (mineral based oil)
    3. Timing gear so no need to worry about timing belt replacement

    I'm planning to shift to a sedan (im thinking vios 1.5L or Civic Lxi 2000 model or Corolla Altis Small body).

    Is this a good choice since sabi nila mas matipid pa rin ang sedan compared to SUV's considering it runs 10km/l on an average and has cheaper PMS costs?

    Sabi kasi ng GF ko yung Lancer daw niya 1,200.00 lang a week compared to my Trooper's 1,800.00 a week fuel we come from the same area (Marikina) and work in the same area (ortigas).

    Thanks in advance.

    honaman... mas medyo matipid ng konti ang sedan.
    ang nakakatakot lang naman sa sedan is pag tag-ulan, tapos bumabaha.
    if ever you will be converting to a sedan, and considering your fuel and PMS expenses, the Vios will suit your purpose. (bat ayaw mo ng Jazz?)

    If fuel consumption is your concern, the Civic 1.5 LXi m/t is frugal (around 10-11km/L sa city). This also has the biggest interior space amongst your 3 choices.

    If you want to retain an SUV vehicle... pwede rin Rav4 with M/T... right now am doing 9.5km/L (2.0L and with permanent 4wd engaged). Mas maganda ang fuel consumption ng 2WD version...

    sus! ako nman gusto kng mag-SUV(vitara is my personal choice) kc i'm thinking of "all-around vehicle". hehe!

    i have a lancer sedan, la pa nman akong problema kaso ini-isip ko pag-baha at yng trip to provinces, mas maganda pa din ang SUV.

    kng tipid hanap mo VIOS ka na lang, 1.3L. Boss ko dati, me VIOS sya(daily trip) at me "porche"(pang porma)

    Hhmmm...temporary solution lang ang mag-downsize ka ng ride. If fuel consumption only concerns you why not limit your use of your vehicle. How about using the public transport kung office-house lang usual route mo. But that is just me.
