    Upgrade to Vitz

    True about the passo but they have a rather low demand, The interior feels like a van and even the seating arrangement. Looks also like a cr41 But definitely far more refined, than a vitz where they have been trying to get that Toyota econo sedan feel like axio Corolla and the engine lets all of it down.

    Daihatsu Terios

    They do around 8-10 kmpl Maintenance cost is NOT LOW Also I guess you are looking at used ones Either the 2014 lot or the 2007 2008 lot or the early 2000s old shape lot. Most of the above will have high mileage within the country and reasonable repairs. Parts are the bit scarce for the second gen so u have to go to agents at times. So its is not going to be cheap to run or not going to be trouble free. Keep a cash margin for repairs

    Daihatsu Terios

    WELCOME TO AL. Congratz on your first car,.. If you want efficiency, get a Mira, but you should get some decent consumption when compared with a regular SUV. Good luck. TT.

    Budget 2019

    actually the 2L civic type-R 2015 model engine was developed in Europe with partners like Bosch,Mahle. Honda, in a first for JOEMs (wisely) decided around 2011 to introduce downsized GDI turbocharged technology which was becoming a trend in European hatchbacks(not to be confused with the Mitsubishi GDI systems from the 90s, for bigger engines) The 1L Civics are just a minor variant of the 2L mainstream civics that produce over 300HP. So in fact it IS European tech inside, in addition with VTEC AND VVT. The same technology is used also in many Acura SUVs and sedans in US and China,and has made good profit for Honda. Toyota on the other hand was over confident about their Atkinson cycle bigger PFI engines, which were best for mating with the low torque /high efficient parallel drivetrains.

    Bump of rear wheels

    Thanks all for replying . Also comment about changing suspension (coil spring and shockabsobers ) can fix this.

    Budget 2019

    Point taken. However if one wants price conscious motoring solutions - 50 cc mopeds, tuks and uber are a few options that come to mind 😁 Acually if you think about it the japs don't want to jump 2 steps ahead and give us hybrids with turbocharged engines. They are keeping it for later. Just like the iphone 6s was rolled out. We are getting ripped off.on.a staggered basis. The never-ending upgrade and planned obsolescence cycle. If an ICE Honda Civic could be turbocharged why not a Prius or an Axio Hybrid ???

    Budget 2019

    Again...you are missing the point of a Luxury tax versus a Eco-tax. Also, wouldn't you think that these technologies would add to the manufacturing price ? Which goes contrary to what the standard Toyotas and Nissans try to achieve (price conscious motoring solutions) ?

    Bump of rear wheels

    No..it is the same as the passenger variant. Difference is rear seats, etc are rather ..well..non existent and the trim and stuff are more cargo friendly. Its just a low cost version. I guess it comes to SL in ship loads because it is cheap.

    Daihatsu Terios

    I’m gonna buy Daihatsu Terios as my first vehicle. Is it a good fuel consumption vehicle and law cost maintenance vehicle.

    Upgrade to Vitz

    Brought down a 2016 F Safety with about 25,000 kms for my uncle before the tax hike for 3.5 ish. Now the tax is higher so a base F probably. This should be about right but mind you the car is a bit underpowered so if you put your foot down to get some speed it might consume more fuel True. You can also consider the Passo cheaper and more bells and whistles.

    A vehicle loan of 4.5 million

    If you are regularly remitting your salary from your employment to a bank, they are the best people to ask for a loan. Still it won’t be easy. Good luck! My experience is banks only like your hard earn foreign currency, that’s it.

    Knock sensor failure

    hi tilvin. thank you for your quick response. that gear box problem came after previous oil changing. a machanic observed and fix the problem once but it appears again soon. Also he said that replacing the knock sensor not a solution for the failure because the vibrations of engine had changed due to head gasket replacement. 🙄☹️

    Upgrade to Vitz

    You can buy a F grade, 2015 or 2016 Fuel consumption is like 13kmpl , 92oc It's not exactly an upgrade, both are equally underpowered Vitz may look a bit better and be a bit more comfortable The difference is the size and cargo area 2nd row seating is cramped in the vitz in comparision The engine is so noisy u ll go crawling back to the wagon r, and the vibration will make you think it's an 80s townace, I'm sure the highest grade of wagon r will be far more refined than this.

    My advice - Put to a good local garage who has mechs with heads (Not mouth only....😆) and do the job. If somebody who does not have head in To*ot* La**a do your job what will happen? I have experienced so many times in bigger organizations, there were lot of supervisors and techs who don't have any knowledge of cars. Just big mouth only and some broken English....😆. These guys never talk in Sinhala man....😆

    Knock sensor failure

    I have 2 solutions for your 2 problems. Solution 1 - Replace the knock sensor Solution 2 - Change the gearbox oil Can you do both solutions and do an ECU rescan / update?

    Upgrade to Vitz

    I have a wagonr Fx 2018, Im planning to upgrade to vitz. So what is advantages or disadvantages of it. What model of vitz I can buy around 3.6M? What is fuel consumption of Vitz?

    Budget 2019

    S straight to the point, a Half sized Prius needing 1.8L is just absurd compared to the bigger European rivals equipped with modern technology. Especially Toyota seems to stick with PFI naturally aspirated engines which provide low power per displacement.

    Bump of rear wheels

    well we had two alto 2004 and 2016 both had very poor suspension at the back. its good to take 2 people and a tiny person at the back. not to take 4 or 5 people. That how it is designed and don,t put a lot of air its a small car. when we go over a hump slow down well.

      Yea something big, like the big ends or a con rod, and the vibration, a 4d56 /4m41 engine in their last iteration is smoother than this, fancy bits aside being an old school engine design from like 30 years ago. When it revs it sounds like an evo engine, then u get happy and then when u look at the gauges you just zoomed from 40 to 50kmph, lol with all that finesse.

      It's one of the worst cars to own if you are a motorhead,

      my prev. viva elite produced less vibration at idle than the ksp130. sigh 😥 why is it so bad even with the toyota jel mounts and years of experience with 3pot engine cars and prev. versions of vitz!!!

      I wonder if its the stiffer suspension, the car handles well, and reviews say they made the suspension stiffer in the ksp130
