One real fast, good looking and sporty and the other is a Subaru.

Hard choice.

Subaru hands down... GH2 or GH3 it don't matter as those cars are NA

but btw these use the EL15 and not the EJ16 big difference DOHC vs SOHC...

the GH has lots more pep than the TS... and can't be classed with no Tiida... :lol:

NICE Good info...Well to me they are both similar in price range, I know tiida parts would be easy to get at any auto parts store not sure about the subaru, the tiida more likely to get target to steal, the subaru engine and tranny parts might be difficult to source as i plan to keep the car a good while and the tiida tranny and engines are readily available in the bamboo and the subaru looks nicer!! This decision is so hard!! LOL

+1

Safety with the subaru is a major +

Tiida's not a bad option, but there seems to be a stigma with owning one...

Don't be fooled with the misconception of parts hard to find for Subaru. Yes it make be a bit more in most cases but they last long. eBay also got a wide range of OEM parts. I have owned 3 Subarus in total, got 2 now and one is a GH2 Hatch going on 120,000 KMs and more and I haven't changed any major part.

i do preventative maintenance and change parts before it fail... eg. water pump timing belt radiator plugs etc. was swapped out with aftermarket performance parts at 85,000km the car runs on the highway from south to north everyday and absolutely no problems...

Tiida parts NOT too cheap.

Scooby parts are pretty easy to find now if you know where to look. As someone said a lot of parts retail right here on tuner. From my research scooby parts seem to be durable, cars seem to be durable and i'd feel comfortable driving a car knowing if I get in an accident I stand a good chance of leaving without major damages.

And them scoobs just sexy, sexy as hell.

Subaru parts are actually cheaper than Tiida parts. Tiida from Massey can only run on premium.

By the way, are we comparing foreign used or new? Because with both those vehicles, you may have a better warranty with a RORO dealer.

Subaru 1.5 hatch vs nissan tiida hatch

Timing belt and about 3 tensioners have to be changed vs a chain tensioner probably

Multilink rear suspension vs torsion beam rear suspension. Multilink requires more bushings as they are more complicated by design. Might cost more initially but as to the longevity I can't say.

AWD vs FWD. Awd is more complicated vs the fwd and will require more servicing

Fuel consumption might be higher in the scooby because of weight and transmission losses but that weight probably indicates it is safer in an accident

I have heard some horror stories about the tiida cvt. The plain 4 Speed auto might be more reliable
Tiida is also more heavily favoured by thieves. I think the cvt tiida might out pace the 1.5 scooby hatch.

Scooby has a much better look.

I would actually pick the scooby. It is safer in my opinion and looks better. ... Just need to get the servicing out of the way early. Cheaper to get my hands dirty

It just needs a touch more (service and fuel) than other vehicles cause it has more to move/turn
E.g
Rear diff
Rear driveshaft
Rear axles

The girlfriend bought a RORO Impreza hatch a three weeks ago. Turns out its front wheel drive so less maintenance.
Also, I got 475kms and the fuel light didn't even come on and took $115 to fill back up which i think is good considering how spirited I was driving it. She filled it exactly two weeks ago and its just gotten to half tank.
Driving in it doesn't feel like I'm driving a cheap Japanese car

That 2wd definitely changes things....engine is still a chore, but you have less drivetrain losses as well as no rear drivetrain to service. ..:smile:
