    Mitsubishi Lancer CS3 or Yaris ?

    Actually my dream car is Lancer EX.But they have priced around 3.5 Mil (2008) and its over my budget.Now im looking for a Lancer CS3 but there are only few have advertised.I think I'm having enough skills to enjoy the ride of a manual since I have been driving my company owned L200 manual for 3 yrs.But I think CS1 is not having enough power for use in my area (Badulla) If I could not find a decent CS3 for my budget I will have to get a Yaris 2008.There are few brand new imported ones have advertised. Thanks.

    Thanks for your input. I was having the same concern with terracotta. Seems that's the best option can you let me know from where you bought them. Is it from the Nawala tile showrooms.

    +1 on homogeneous tiles. Its not too pricey. If you buy during Avurudhu and Christmas there are lot of sales. Had the same decision last year and went for them. If you really can't afford it buy some Chinese tiles. Still better than the other options.

    Hybrid or Non Hybrid

    Yes....at the end of the day I believe the TCO will be pretty much the same for both without the hassle of maintaining a Hybrid system

    Hybrid or Non Hybrid

    Thanks Kush, But I am looking for a Salon type instead of hatch bag, Appreciate & thanks for your quick response to my question. Generally, I do not run that milage p/m as you stated. Please, just simply let me know whether it is worthwhile to go for a non hybrid instead of Hybrid according to my budget. I strictly stick to Toyota. Regards.

    Drive both and decide for yourself. Tryout the rear seats also. Do some research on the country of manufacture.

    Terracotta will be a pain, gets damage even for shoes Dark color homogeneous tile will be the best option, bit expensive though There are special hard wearing flooring material (industrial use)

    Some of the safety features like autonomous brakes, lane keeping assist are not offered in SL as they claim that they are not configured to local driving conditions.

    Hybrid or Non Hybrid

    Given your criteria you have no other choice apart from Vitz, why do you want justification for your decision when you have more or less made your choice.

    Garage Floor Material

    Hi All, I was thinking about re doing my garage floor and looking for a good material to choose from. I searched the forum but was not able to find any topics on this. My current options are as follows. 1. Terracotta - This is relatively cheap, and like the finishing as well. However it tends to erode a bit more than the rest and tends to absorb any oil residues. This has to be maintained carefully for long time. 2. Tiles - Have to find one with rough finish, good for long time. 3. Cement finish - Tends to be slippery and can go for rough finish but would be hard to manage with dust. If you have any thoughts on this matter would love to hear them out.

    Some Concerns?

    Fit/Jazz, Vezel/H-RV, Grace/City gasoline variants have always come with a conventional CVT....and this is global.

    Hybrid or Non Hybrid

    You should mention your requirements to suggest good examples. Anyway, buying a hybrid without at least doing 1500km per month is pointless. Also note that hybrid batteries from 2013-2014 models might be having their final one or two years.

    Mitsubishi Lancer CS3 or Yaris ?

    I can sense another lancer thread is on it’s way. Eagerly awaiting.❤️
  22. Is there a tagging mechanism in autolanka forum ? It would be beneficial and searchable content easily if there is one. This is online forum having such tagging system. https://mechanics.stackexchange.com/

    Some Concerns?

    Sometimes back Honda dealer here advertised this model ( Jazz non-hybrid with CVT box ) but now website don't have that car. Better to check with Honda dealer.

    Some Concerns?

    That workaround doesn't work. Locking the transmission in 1st or 2nd gear doesn't stop the DCT from slipping when crawling forward - the only viable workaround is avoiding crawling as much as possible, specially when going uphill / when the car is loaded Agree to @Jason Bourne. There is good discussion on this issue in this forum. Only advantage in Hybrid with DCT is ( Honda GP5 and Hyundai Ioniq hybrid) is on EV-mode clutches disengage giving peace of mind for no clutch slippery happens.

    Allion A18

    There are only a few (might be less than 20, or even 10) 1800cc 2010 afterwards Allion/Premio are imported to SL. I have only seen one for sale yet. That’s because from 2011-2012 taxation has been increasing rapidly for higher capacity engines. But you can find a 2007-2009 one and still those would be a bit rare too(There might be one or two up for sale at the moment). 1500cc variant is just ok for daily driving. Compared to the 4 speed conventional auto gearboxes in the 2002-2006 240 Allion/Premio models, newer 260 with CVT has tuned to get better torque around 1000-3000rpm. Even in the hills I’m yet to experience any issue. But the car feels barge-like and cumbersome in corners than cars like Vios and 121. That’s due to the weight and soft tuned suspension. Those cars excel at doing long journeys than any other car in this segment. This is what I have experienced. Due to this softer suspension setting, you’ll rarely get the feeling of sticking to the seat and the car is going faster. One day I had a test, Axio 2011 and a Fit Gp5, accelerating from a stop. I know when driving the GP5 feels a whole lot faster that an Axio in any way and feels like in a totally different planet. But I was amazed seeing the Axio just went away, passing the GP5.
