for the altis cause it has higher resale value and hasbetter fuel mileage not to forget the stylish looks of the body shell.

altis ka na. mahal maintenance ng civic. 2 of my friends have civics 2001 model and another friend has corolla 2001 din. they compared notes and they noticed na mas maraming lumalabas na kalampag sa civic compared to corolla. all cars office-bahay lang with occassional out of town trips, and almost the same kilometer readings.

according to our mechanic...the underchasis for honda, not just the civic, is quite weak compared to toyota's and mitsubishi's...that's one of the factors you'd have to consider in the long run...kaya mejo maiksi lang ang life span ng honda

hahahaha. ok sa hirit ah.

hindi naman siguro. although i am not a honda fan. honda makes quality cars here and abroad. hindi naman sya siguro fad lang gaya ng hehehehehe gonuts donuts, billiards o badminton. hehehehehe again.


with regards to the after sales service, depende siguro sa casa. may maayos magbigay ng service, may hinde. ganun din naman sa toyota and sa other cars eh.

Google, dito lang naman sa Pinas sikat ang Honda.. tayo kseng mga Pinoy mahilig makigulo kung anong bago (kumpara sa ibang Japanese cars, Honda kse pinaka-last na pumasok sa bansa natin). Nakita mo na ba ang latest survey tska nabasa mo mga post ng mga nauna sa kin dito? Kaya.. papalubog na talaga ang Honda.. fad lang talaga sila.. unlike Toyota na household name na. B)

After-sales na sinasabi ko... madalas wala silang piyesa! :rolleyes:

Sa tutuo lang, maka-Nissan ako.. lamig ng aircon eh. :P

physical appearance - i go for altis... the design is better than civc.
riding comfort - i still go for honda... have drive honda, toyota and nissan, and honda's suspension is still the best. toyota's suspension is the worst.
service - their customer service are at par. friendly and accomodating.
spare parts - toyota is the best. cheaper and readily available.

lost taste of civic after witnessing how ricer's molest a good 'A' to 'B' vehicle. as for the altis, looks too weird for my taste, but it's less riced up so i guess it gets my vote.

palubog? really now....how come Honda is among the only ONE OF TWO jap car companies that is purely japanese owned.

unlike your favorite nissan, it needed a takeover from Daimler-Chrysler during the late 90's coz they were already losing money. Having a cool aircon is not the sole basis to consider a car good. But i must admit, women like cars that has good air conditioning and i agree with you that Nissan's Calsonic AC is really good. ;)

With regards to Honda Casas, avoid those owned by the Ayala's, they are really known for bad service, with the exception of Honda Shaw.

As for the suspension, we really can't tell which one is better because it really depends on how we drive the car, if you don't slow down in going thru deep potholes masisira talaga ang suspension mo. But if ywe base the suspension on the type they used

HONDA - Macpherson strut/ double wishbone
TOYOTA - Macpherson strut / Torsion Beam


id pick the double wishbone combo anytime! :D it's less noisy and is less "hard" compared to the macphersons. it is also being used by jaguars, benzes and even FORMULA 1 cars. Macphersons are gaining popularity in modern cars now because it's cheaper as compared to the wishbones.

too bad Honda used used macpherson's for their front suspension in the current civic, but the EK or 96 to 2000 civic used to have double wishbones all the way.
