Planning to buy a car, just for commuting. 3 car models are at a good price for me.
2006 Toyota Raum 1.5G, 79km
2006 Nissan Note 15S V Package,39km
2006 Honda Fit 1.3A, 71km
they are almost the same price, my deal is Raum, but I just find very little information about this model, is it reliable? does it have some issues? I know the note has CVT issues, and does FIT has flaws as well?
and which one is the most reliable one?
thanks

Hi there,
As these are all Japanese imports, there is little to no information available.
However in this year period, Nissan and Honda transmissions were particularly prone to complaints and issues.
So my pick would have to be the Toyota as they seem the most reliable even with a CVT transmission.

And I just found the Vitz almost the same price with Raum, so do you recommend Vitz? I know some Vitz use CVT as well.
and around 5000-6000 which car is the most reliable? I don't mind the performance, just the mechanical can works for a long time.

Hi there,
As you are talking about all Japanese cars, reliability is a generalisation as there is not really any way of telling how the vehicle has been used and maintained. The Raum is related to the Vitz, and you'll find that most of these small cars share all the same engine and transmission parts, it's just the body shape that differs.
