Looking to buy our first car, and we're more or less decided on an Ecosport (Trend, MT, Black Edition). The height was important to us, as it occasionally floods where we live. It's in the high range of our budget.
However, I've been seeing bad reviews for the AT, particularly its DCT transmission, and was wondering if transmission problems are also prevalent in the manual. Also now having second thoughts - I don't want to spend all that money and then sakit ng ulo agad 5 years down the road pa lang.
Any alternatives anyone might suggest also? We looked at the Juke as well, but it's significantly pricier, and while we love the look and I wouldn't mind the automatic, it also has less space compared to the Ecosport. The Mobilio was also considered, but it was too low - we might as well buy a Vios kahit less spacious, significantly cheaper and reliable pa. I've also driven an Avanza, HATED it, which is why we're crossing that off our list as well.
Thank you in advance to folks who'll reply.
Ecosport MT variants has less or no at all issues like what you've found out on AT's. When it comes to compartment, it has an adequate space that can fit a couple of stuffs. Same goes to legroom to the passengers at the back, even 3 adults can freely sit with ample space without the tight feels.
I'm currently owns a Ecosport and it is my 1st brand new car. Not to be bias, you may want to consider ASX, Juke, Tucson or HR-V.
Good luck and hope you can find the best fit for you and your wife.
