    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....😆

    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.

    Thank you for the idea. I will contact the lathe machine guy and discuss possibility.

      Every time I hear the new Vitz It feels like something has come loose of the engine

      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,

    Bump of rear wheels

    Does this mean they’ve sorta cut the panels and fixed windows to it? Meaning van spec what is the apparent difference in cargo capability besides the loading capacity?

    Bump of rear wheels

    Your alto....is it a van variant ? If you and your friend's Alto has the chassis code HA36V, then you have the van variant which is the variant made for business use (i.e. carrying cargo). The passenger variant would be HA36S. Both the variants have variants of the a Torsion Beam suspension system (Suzuki says the 4WD has a ITL ?). The difference is the HA36S has softer suspension and the van has harder suspension. So that could be the main cause for the hard feeling. But it being bumpy...well..like the others have suggested maybe too much air pressure or some alignment/balancing problem ? or worst yet...it has had an accident and poorly fixed (that is the extreme case). But yes...don't be surprised if more than one car has been subjected to the above....a lot of people get their cars maintained through ********* or use it harshly (slammimng over curbs, pot holes, etcc messing up the telemetry of the wheels...and quite a lot of people over inflate their tires (on the advice of service station boys) so that they save fuel...

    Bump of rear wheels

    Thanks for replying for this.There are no issue with tyres but didnt check wheel balance. I think this car has poor rear suspension. Other cars of this model have the same issue. Cn someone explain me that its depends on the performance of rear coil spring and shockabsobers which use for this model and change of the coil or shockabsobers will fix this issue?

    Did you check the tyre pressure? Maybe the tyre pressure is too high

  24. After a cold start (i.e in the morning), does the engine rev upto about 1500 RPM and slowly settle down to normal as the engine warms up? If the rest of the throttle body is good, and if it is actually the IACV that is faulty, just replace the IACV. There's no benefit in replacing the entire throttle body unless the one on the car has a crack or irreparable damage.

    Bump of rear wheels

    First check the condition of the tyres. Check for previous puncture repairs that have the repair cord sticking out. Check for pebbles stuck in between treads. Check for bulges in the sidewall. Next, get the rear wheels balanced. Maybe a balancing weight has fallen off causing vibration. If none of them solve the issue, get the rear suspension checked out from a good garage.

    Budget 2019

    My point here being Japs have not mated Turbos with Hybrid or PHEV tech in any significant scale yet and are lagging behind their {luxury} European counterparts who are doing it in a large scale to achieve tax breaks and fuel efficiency goals with far better safety tech. Though the manufacturer price of these high end vehicles might be almost twice the price of a similar Jap vehicle the tax/duty benefits and the final cost makes these modern euros more appealing ( CIF value expressed as a fraction of the total cost to acquire). One can only presume that plenty of C & E 300de Mercs will be finding their way here at least on retirement permits. Most of the budget ICE vehicles and sub 800 cc hybrids that the ever evolving duty cum luxury taxes are progressively promoting to be imported are death traps considering the developing road network and expressways. Kei cars designed for town use in Japan are plying highways with varying road conditions and major expressways whereby being utilised beyond their intended purpose and safety limits.
  27. Anyone else using Akebono brake pads?

    Last time I installed Akebono pads at the front and FBK shoes at the back. Planning to get Akebono front and back
