Choice of Car

Postby sharonr12 » June 3rd, 2019, 8:28 pm

Hi Everyone,

So I am new to TriniTuner and need some advice.

With reviews from the Kio Rio 2019, KIA Cerato 2019, Ioniq 2019 and Honda City 2019 whats your best bet in order.

I am seeign reviews on the Honda City with customers complaining of rust etc. Which would would have a better resale value? I was looking at roll on & roll off but i'm not sure if i should or just go new brand at a reasonable price.

Thanks in advance fo ryour feedback.

If you're still deciding between brand new or roll on roll off, then tell us about your budget. Both the budget for the initial purchase and maintenance thereafter.
A new car would have a higher resale value than a RORO , but new cars come with a warranty from the dealership. If you don't service at the dealership, your warranty is voided. My experience with servicing at the dealership was that a regular service cost double than if I went to a regular mechanic.

Regarding the cars u mention, I have a 2015 cerato koup and it works great. It's nice to drive, lots of power, handles well and came fully loaded.... bluetooth controls on steering wheel etc. Haven't had any issues since it was bought.
The loniq is a hybrid and the city uses cng, so you'll save on gas should u decide to go with either option. Maybe 2nrs with these vehicles can say how much they save on gas.

Newer Kia cars drive well in my experience, and you can generally get at least 5+ trouble free years out of them no problem. The suspension might be on the firmer side than what you might be accustomed to. However their resale values plummet rather quickly.

If you have Kia Cerato budget, why not go for a new Yaris?
Also on a side note, if resale value going to bother you this badly, just go roro or 2nd hand.

havent heard good things about the honda city in terms of build quality but the newer kia are good vehicles except for the poor resale due to their past spotty reliability.

saw someone complaining about the cng honda city stating that after 3 years he had to change the starter and the windows stopped working properly etc

With your budget and concern with fuel efficiency, i would recommend a roro Honda Vezel....I have the Z grade model....8 months in no problems, nice drive too...Cant Speak for resale values though.

My wife has a 2014 Rio (70,000km) and so far no issues, just regular maintenance. No rattling or anything feeling loose, just as others said the resale value isn't good but she has no plans to do so, she's just gonna run it till some major issue occurs like tranny going or something so then she will upgrade and sell this one as a parts car for cheap.

Honda City is $170k, finance it with InOne package and they can do the insurance for the full financing term. Plus 2 years/40,000km free servicing. I have had zero issues with ours, they even changed a battery under warranty. Gas bill went from $1300-1500/mo on the Swift we had before to $200-240/mo with the City, including putting $60 super. We drive it a lot so every other day we fill i.e. about 4 times/wk but at $8-12 per tank, it's never a problem. Starts up on gas and switches automatically to CNG. Car runs well, has features Bluetooth, Reverse cam, touch screen radio, booming audio etc.

I imagine when it's time to sell people will grab it like hot cakes. They keep moving quickly at Car Max as well.

This model isnt bad at all. Very quiet cabin and soft suspension like a toyota. Lil crappy interior and wears very easily, but a mate of mine has one and no issues to date.

Went Tobago and drove a rental Honda City. It felt like a cheap, tiny car. I did not like it. Was also pretty slow and sluggish on hills. The Yaris feels like a much better quality car. I haven't driven or ever been in a Rio, but I think you'll get much better bang for your buck with Kia.

A rental is a terrible car to "review". Ppl does beat it out, the company don`t maintain it well etc.
Yaris *not on the list*.
Ioniq seems to be popular, check the thread for review and issues http://www.trinituner.com/v4/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=697429

The most fuel efficient will be those hybrid vehicles currently.

If you are trying to save money however; the cheapest vehicle with any one of these technologies (cng, hybrid) should be where you start.

CNG stations are a bit limited and fill up takes some time, not to mention having a bomb inside the trunk is not always reassuring.

With your budget you shud screw all those sheitty cars that cant get good resale value/mpgs/parts...you can get a low milage hilux vigo champ for that kinda money..diesel giving you abt 650kms per tank(approx
$190)..resale value holds on toyota and you can drive the "smooth" roads of tnt in peace without worrying abt suspension

On a side note..kia is crap..aftersale service is poor..resale value is toots..i have a coworker currently kia a 2016 sportage and the abs module gone and its costing 13k to replace and they dont have in tnt..dey have to ship it in..she's been travelling for the last 2 months
