    I experience something like that after start up and initial move of the car. I think it's normal. I'll likewise observe mine closely.

    Update on my FC, my last tank-up got me 10.32km/L, pure city driving on the mecca of Metro Manila motorists that is EDSA. This is using Petron XCS.

    I also experience the soft thud. I think it may be the brake pads sticking to the disc at the start, but this is just a guess.

    Good day fellow tsikooters.
    How's Altis? Hehe

    I'm looking for a sedan kasi for a college student. Everyday gagamitin, Matipid po ba sa Gas?
    I'm comparing between 1.6E/ Mitsubishi Lancer EX(1.6 variant, M/T) and Hyundai Elantra. Hehehe!

    go for Altis if what you are really looking for is PERFORMANCE. Elantra is really a looker, but has not proven yet anything when it comes to performance.

    What are your priorities? Performance? Comfort? The Altis is basically the all-arounder and the E comes with a 6-speed m/t just like the Elantra and when the college kids starts taking it to work years from now, it still fits in well. For performance though, the Elantra is ahead. Try to check also the safety ratings online for the cars that you are looking at.

    For FC, my m/t 2012 E gets 9-10km/L++ in city driving. That's EDSA rush hour traffic on an almost daily basis. If traffic is light to moderate then i hit the 11s.

    Performance is my priority sir, but i think Elantra is somehow have less km/l than the Altis.
    And also i'm afraid if Elantra also have the knocking issue just like the accents.

    I think the Altis is a safe buy.

    Performance? There's nothing impressive about the Altis' performance. It's an adequate car that's really fuel efficient, but it doesn't have an awe-inspiring engine. The Elantra has a better engine in fact. More horsepower and more linear power delivery (the Altis doesn't have much top-end grunt).

    And don't get me started on handling. The Altis is a nervous car when driven through corners at speed. Again, the Elantra fares better, though it's not as good as a Mazda 3 or Focus in terms of handling.

    Precisely. Nothing to stir your loins, but it'll be the perfect daily drive as long as you're not looking to carve corners. I'd personally get a 1.6 Elantra though if I was in your shoes, but I'll definitely be changing the rims and adding fog lamps.
