    Excellency, I believe I'm not worthy to provide my humble opinion for thy request. I am but no engineer -though I'm aware of issues . I hath but owned one car that falls in your excellency's budget of the proximity of 3 million, which is the Honda Fit GP1 which hath been extensively discussed. Would your excellency care to do a search for that particular car? There are many more models I could suggest to your excellency but sadly I'm not qualified to be worthy to provide input. The current car I own exceeds thy budget hence I'm unqualified to be honored in providing an input for your excellency. Please pardon this humble peasant.

    Personally, I disagree. However wrong the wagenR guy is in turning suddenly with no turn signal, the speed this guy was going to cause a car to fly into the air on impact... On a narrow road like that. This isn't the highway. In this case it was a car, but on a narrow road it could just as easily be a bike, a pedestrian going around a pothole, a dog. Anything. There is NO reason to ignore the speed limit like that.

    Alternatively, you also have the option of approaching padi baage jayas**dara with a bunch of other docs/similar people and asking him to issue an import license for the parts that are needed for your mahindra or micro.

    Car sellers and car owners will tell you all kind of stories but here are some truths. 1.any car in Sri Lanka does about 9-10km/litre. Whether it's Axio, Allion, Wagon R, Alto, Bulto whatnot. Hybrids will give around 12-13kmpl. That's all. If you hear premios doing 13, 14 or 15, that's a lie! 2.ALL cars depreciate from unreg to the next 3 to 4 years. That includes axios, premios and wagon r's. All of them. Thereafter, there might be a slow depreciation or appreciation depending on government's tax policy changes. Some cars that were bought for 1 - 1.2 million in 2005 can now be sold for 2 million BUT that doesn't take currency depreciation in to account. Unless you understand these two truths, you will always be disappointed.

    Depends on the use and the filter itself....my Corolla wagon which just reached 40,000km and is 21 years old has not had an air filter changed. Yes...it is still the stock air filter. In the RAV4 I had in Tanzania...I had it replaced in Japan before I exported it to TZ..that was at about 54,000 odd kms or so...just before I sold it I remember swapping it out (I bought one in Japan and carried it over along with some other consumables). Then the Fortuner in Vietnam..when I bought it it had 24,000km on it and had a airfilter that was dirty (had leaves and heavy dust) so had to swap it out...when I sold it a few months ago it had a bit over 49,000km the filter was pretty dusty (did not change it though....). You really cannot compare Japanese service intervals to what is required in Sri Lanka. How the cars are driven and the environment is quite different. We do tend to use a lot more urban expressways/loop roads, etc...so the speeds and time sitting around idling...how the car brakes..are rather different in SL...lets not forget that we don't have any tuk tuks drivers to defend space against in JPN . Then there is also the strict emmisions requirements and monitoring of vehicles...so ..yeah... In SL we have a lot more dust than in Japan. Hell I can go without washing the car for months and it would look nice and shiny. Quite the opposite in SL. As for AQI readings....typical AQI reading are taken at 10 - 12 m heights off the ground. I was quite close to several sites in VN, including the one at my kids' school. Hanoi has one of the worst air qualities in the world (we are talking about 350++ n average). So as parents we had to monitor AQI quite close before sending the kids out. The issue was that even though the AQI readers showed the air quality within safe margins..the surface air was quite polluted. So..yeah....becareful about how you interpret AQI data as well. Yes...SL is a small island with wind currents...but also we have quie a lot more obstacles in city areas and that wind current pretty much gets obstructed or sent through higher altitudes whilst the dusty air just gets stuck in between.

    Hey man - no worries I mean when I saw your Original post and the whole 'Applicants should have 25+ years experience in.....' vibe I just could not resist It's cool that you've cleared out your stance. My man @Hyaenidae - that is impressive sh*t. Yeah well - the thing is the members in this forum are a lot of like minded people which is the nicest thing here. There are many of us who are not at all professionally into Automobile engineering etc but are just purely guys who have the seemingly unfathomable obsession with cars - the type of people who remember their co-workers by what they drive than their name or what they do, people who can identify an obscure Japanese car by looking at its light, people who know what type of car would suit a different purpose ...people like me who dreamt of being a mechanic as a kid but drifted far far away and ended up writing code (ok...now I mostly write excel formulas and make Presentations). I know some people in this forum in person and they're some of the nicest people around. Some of them provided sound mechanical advice and guess what I even got some really good opinions from the people in the forum when I wanted to fix a glass roof for my courtyard. There's no discrimination, no kunuharupa, and this forum is a pleasant place as opposed to other more popular forums and facebook automotive groups - which honestly make me cringe a bit when I interact with bus mudalalis who've bought Civics, kasippu mudalalis with Allions etc) In short it's a forum of like-minded Automobile Enthusiasts. Yeah - I guess this is where IT guys with a passion for cars end up - and as opposed to other professions we spend a hell lot of time with internet access so that adds up.

    Aiise Kolitha, Why you ask this question from Consumer Reports who seem to have no idea about cars and the prices in Sri Lanka?
  13. 6 points
    This is one of those rare occasions I am actually agreeing with @gayanath...servicing and costs associated with it have been completely blown out of proportion in Sri Lanka mostly by service station operators. They are literally a mafia by themselves and it is because of them and the cheap parts suppliers that has held back this particular side of the industry for ages. Cars are not that fickle even when it is loaded with tech. Figuring out the Hybrid system status in a Toyota does not require processes that need space age technology. If the car is showing errors..do a scan...heck..do a scan anyway...(for the life of me I cannot imagine why plugging in a scanner costs so much in SL...in Vietnam, East Timor and Malawi the agent plug in scanners for the heck of it..for nothing as well !). I know a poor guy who had to pay 7500LKR to get a sensor on his front bumper and another one behind the grill emblem cleaned off mud. WTH ??? About not all errors trigger check lights....used to be true...but with newer systems all the critical components do trigger check lights. If something is causing a system to start going bad..then regular checkups might detect it and fix it before the check lights go on. Again..cars are not that fickle that the check engine light goes off as soon as something goes slightly out of the stock calibration. Yes...cleaning the Hybrid system's vent is not that complicated. As long as the vents are cleaned it will do just fine until an annual check or something of the sort (Japanese cars are subject to an annual maintenance check hich is semi-legal..and this checks all these). Let's not even get in to the whole big deal of washing the under carriage ! Geez...not rocket science ! Then there is the whole Toyota/Nissan/Honda oil. None of these manufacturers make oil. They buy it from other suppliers. But car owners are told otherwise. But then you cannot blame the owners as well because the parts suppliers just bring in all kinds of fake and cheap ##@@! Manufacturer's parts are not the best that is out there for the car.... Anyway...done with my rant....

    Okay...well...I do not meet any of your eligibility criteria for provision of advice For starters..you need to do your own leg work. You cannot expect forum members to hand you the solution and you just buy it (although I must admit there are a lot of posts with that attitude these days). In general: 1. Go through other threads for car recommendations on the forum. 2. There is a thread called How to buy a second hand car in SL. It will give you a comprehensive list of what to do, what to check and by whom. 3. A car should be (and is) a personal preference. What car models interest you ? At the end of the day..it is your money and you are the one who has to live with it day in and out. Would you be happy with dating a girl you have never seen in your life before that your parents told you to date ? OR Would you be happEIR dating a girl that you met on your own and fancied ? 4. Market price...this is something you should do your own homework sadly...once you figure out what you fancy..check the classified and maybe even drop by a few cars sales to see what the asking rates are and we can discuss about what the actual going rates are (they are different).

    Think of all the wagon-r's that were used as taxis and rented out ones that were used to haul gravel (you saw the video on Facebook ?) those are probably getting re-sold as well. Anyways cars depreciate - this is a norm this was not the case in the past simply because of the prevailing tax structures then and there were no 'new' options. In the 2010's the hybrid wave made sure the 1.5 L ICE cars depreciated...then the hybrids themselves lost value pretty quickly since never hybrids were available for a tad above the same amount - remember Sri Lankan's love the new number. When the next tax revision came the kei's came to the party but at the same time the hybrids actually had a mild spike in re-sale value only to go down when the batteries failed and DCT issues came up. Then with the emergence of Turbo charged 1 Liter cars/Suv's people got on the band-wagon and naturally even the best car to be ever made in the history of all parallel universes combined (Premio 260- rumored to have been designed by god himself) depreciated somewhat (the faithful of the Premio-Allion club will say otherwise) but yeah that's the new norm so it's something we should accept and move on. Cars are no longer an investment on wheels.

    This is another myth. As an Aqua user, I would say that this is one of a cheapest car to maintain if you are not doing unnecessary and unwanted things. Dealing with service station people is also an Art....🤣🤣 Engine - I do around 9,000 km per six months so, regular oil and filter replacement is by 9,000 km with Toyota oil and Toyota/VIC filter (VIC filter would cost Rs. 1,100). Going to a normal service station will will save a lot. The Engine is running half of the time so Air Filter could used around 50,000 km without harm. Replacement labor cost would be Rs. 800 in Laugfs . Under washing - Only once per year (no point of under washing in every service) Hybrid battery report - I never let them to plug scanner because it gives us nothing. Do battery report extend your battery lifetime?? 🤣🤣For HV battery, the only thing I do is cleaning the air inlet once a year (DIY) and I cleaned the air duct and blower only once after 4 years (DIY) 12v Battery - Its bit expensive but it will payoff by extended duration Transaxle - Cheap to maintain than ordinary AT. Other hybrid components - No maintenance. ** Fortunately my HV battery is still good (however, the amount needed for replacement already saved by Fuel) and ABS is still good too. Statistics, Fuel cost - Rs. 7.04 per km Service & Maintenance and other Costs - Rs. 3.87 per km (Everything including tires. * Even a tire punch) Revenue License and Insurance - Rs. 3.17 per km Irrespective of the model of the car, you will ended up with huge maintenance cost if you are not going to correct place.

    DIY Glove boxes When I bought the car there were no original glove boxes. So decided to make by myself as a DIY task in the post corona period. Here are some images of it. Used a thin Aluminum sheet as the base metal. The size for one glove box is 36"x8".

    Depending on your usage pattern - weekend driver/long distance trips there's no point in getting a used hybrid and running the risk of hybrid related maintenance headaches. Overall the obvious choice would be a Corolla 141 - it's a simple car easy to maintain and will be more comfy than the Yaris on long drives/Outstation trips.

    In 2016 did any of us ever think there will be a total import stoppage and the world would come to a standstill for 6 months? Leave alone cars the way things are going will we be alive in 4 years? 4-5 years is too far down the line to make a prediction. Think of 4-5 years ago - Hybrids were killing it but now they're depreciating like crazy. Also if you observe current trends cars are no longer assets even the most coveted among Sri Lankans - Corollas and Allions and Premios will not go for crazy prices like they used to do. IF you're buying a car do not spend every cent on it so that it will HAVE to be an investment. Be prepared to lose money when you sell it - if you do make a profit that's a bonus.

    Hello and welcome to the forum. The Kelisa is quite a decent hatchback. Used to be my wifes daily driver - trouble free little car based on the Daihatsu Mira. Overall no complains at all. It's a small hatch so you have to expect it to behave like one - not super luxurious or very refined but quite decent. The car is quite nimble and handles well. The EJDE 3 Cylinder 1000 cc engine is very noisy and tends to vibrate a lot. It has around 55 BHP which is quite enough as the car is small and light. Manages hills and all without breaking sweat. The interior is quite spartan and functional, the interior build quality feels a tad bit cheap (understandable considering it's a budget hatch). Interior bits are prone to wear out a bit sooner than Japanese cars. The car is extremely simple mechanically - any decent mechanic can fix it and so simple that some minor jobs can be done DIY as well. Spares are freely available - either at the agents or at a few panchikawatta shops. Some parts are interchangeable with other Daihatsu/Toyota cars as well (For instance,break pads are the same as on the Daihatsu Hijet) The biggest issue usually is the engine mounts tend to wear out quickly - maybe due to the excessive vibration. Original Mounts are comparatively expensive so most people tend to use cheap third party mounts which just last a few months and the car starts vibrating like crazy again. That's something to look out for when inspecting. A little bit of vibration is normal but if it acts like if the car has had an epileptic fit the mounts are bust. Even this is a straightforward fix. Since the car is about 15+ years old you need to look out for other more generic issues such as corrosion, poorly done accident repairs etc. Overall the car is extremely simple and easy to maintain. What we had was one with Automatic transmission and it consistently did 10KMPL - nothing more nothing less. I'm not sure about the market price right now 2003 would probably be around 1.3/1.4 Mil? Do a price check and of course you can always bargain.

    Not really, no. Most regulars around here are just a bunch of guys who enjoy driving and discussing anything related to automobiles in general... driven by passion instead of reason, pleasure instead of practicality, beauty instead of purpose, experience instead of theory, romance instead of cost-benefit analysis... you get the picture Well, going by your requirements and approach to cars in general I think you'd be quite happy with a 1st owner company maintained Perodua Axia 2017 or newer. That's the closest you're going to get to owning a brand new car for your budget atm

    Firstly dayum your demands! Buddy there are plenty experts here but there's no way you can meet every demand you have listed. This price category has been repeatedly discussed more than a few times so i reckon u go through the forums. As far as my recommendations go id say an entree level hybrid kei car might be your best bet. For your pricepoint you should be able to find one with a fairly low mileage and with a 2 year warranty apart from running costs and your fuel economy should not be that bad unless you abuse it. They are prone to faults under extensive engine load like if you are carrying some heavy cargo upcountry but they are pretty good for city driving. An alto would start at 2.4-2.6 and you should be able to find a decent Wagon R or equivalent for 2.7-3 Mil. As for a much more decent car you are looking at a 8+ year old car and that would be a Fit GP1( never owned one, but driven and its pretty smooth), Passo/Vitz(Owned and can recommend), or a swift (Much older 2008, used for a while back and can say its pretty worth the pricepoint). As for a sedan you are looking at a car well over 10 years and with some mileage on the clock. Honda Civic ES5, Corolla 121 (old but awesome car), Mazda 3, Nissan Sunny Fb15,N16, N17, Tida, Lancer (2008-9). All these cars have their own ups and downs, theres no perfect car but thats the whole point of owning a car. The experience you gain of taking care of it and giving the attention it needs. And the on and off mods that make you happy.

    He is probably one of those F&F wannabes. The guy who wants to buy the flashiest car with the biggest exhaust to "stray away from the crowd of Toyotas and be a true street king" or whatever corny stuff they come up with. You tend to see alot of these so called "car enthusiasts/petrolheads/car guys/street racers" in Instagram, having that tiktok stigma also. I won't be surprised if they pointed at the alternator and said "nice turbo machan".

    Do not under estimate..... I m doing my services perfectly at right time (but never do unnecessary things) A story fabricated by poor service guys..... 😃. Engine oil - Toyota 0W20 - 1st can - Rs. 4,800 (2015), Last Can - Rs. 6,325 (2020) Oil Filter - Rs. 1,030 to 1,980 Depend on Toyota or VIC Air Filter - Toyota - Rs. 3,650, Cabin Filter - VIC Rs. 2,800 - 3,600 (You can use 3 VIC's for Toyota cost) Just rubbish... The car itself giving the warning (check engine ) if such. Why you pay for it??🤣 Fan inlet cleaning is nothing for anyone who is having a vacuum cleaner. You are wrong.... HV battery - you could run the car even with check engine. Safe mode runs with 100% engine so fuel efficiency will drop, but car runs safely so could come home easily. (Believe me, two known cars still running with HV battery fault since 1.5 years and 11 months) 12v battery - same with another automatic car. Jump start is possible and no harm Again..... A fabricated story. Opposite is the truth. The first set of tires cost me Rs. 60,000 (Bridgestone - EP300). Still running with Everything is written (as a research and as for fun..... That's why I could answer for you guys 💪💪🤜 ) Buy cheap (Car cost + battery cost 285 k), use cheap and sell cheap ...... No difference but you could use bit new car + touch the technology

    @Gandalf I'm far more of a Subaru guy than a Ford fan to be perfectly honest but the modern Ford ownership experience was brief but pleasant one In terms of the safety I don't think very many other cars come close to the Fiesta in that particular class of car nor in the same price/size/age bracket. IIHS Top Safety Pick in it's day with 7 airbags (including a knee airbag) & Euro NCAP 5* https://www.iihs.org/ratings/vehicle/ford/fiesta-4-door-sedan/2011 https://www.euroncap.com/en/results/ford/fiesta/10922 I owned it for less than a year and it was quite reliable. I had a coolant hose pop out once - they're attached with a clip so it was just a matter of clipping it back, fill up and go. Admittedly i'm fussy about preemptive maintenance and had just a tonne of things done after I bought the car - so all the fluids, filters, plugs, belts, shocks, rubber bushes, tires, etc etc. In a sense that probably held me in good stead. The car shares a tonne of parts with the Mazda Demio & older Mazda 2 so those work perfectly if the original FoMoCo bits are unavailable. There are a number of places like Rainbow Motors who stock aftermarket bits but I got a little lazy and had Mazna Motors source things. Some parts I did order online and like @Crosswind had mentioned earlier in this thread are quite reasonable. Body parts are a little tricky i found out when i wanted to replace a faded reverse light. Api Singhe Motors in Delkanda has bits but they sell at a premium to a Japanese car part. Keep in mind the Softlogic imported ones were made in Thailand but the Fiesta was assembled in a number of places including China, which means that cheap cosmetic bits, interior plastics or even larger items like lights etc are freely available on AliExpress as well if you want to chance it. My one grouse is with the automatic gearbox. It's a lowly 4 speed (4F27E) which has a Mazda iteration as well ( FN4A-EL) It's not like the disastrous Ford PowerShift dual clutch units in that this is a box that can be serviced. Overhaul parts are readily available from various reputed transmission component manufacturers and can be purchased online. That said, the gearbox isn't perfect. There are many online accounts of rough shifts, flares etc. It has a manumatic (tiptronic) option as well but the shifts can feel a little sluggish. Keep in mind it was a seperate transmission controller unit as well. Personally if I ever bought one again, i'd get a manual instead because the engine despite being a simple 1.4L 4 pot, was fine and I felt would have been far more responsive and fun to drive with a manual. The chassis and driving dynamics are what you would expect from a European designed car, but keep in mind this isn't a premium offering. The cabin is quiet so the NVH levels felt marginally superior to the newer generation Mazda 2 which @Supra_Natural owns which I got to use parallel to the Ford. There is sufficient sound deadening and the it has factory fitted steering mounted ICE controls. On the highway it's very smooth and despite it sitting a little tall it was unaffected by crosswinds nor was it unsettled by undulations elsewhere. Never had an issue with ground clearance either. It felt surprisingly refined for a car of that class and the ride was quite compliant.

    Members, All Opel cars came to Ceylon during that era had 6 Volts system, only later years they were installed by the manufactor with 12 volts. Most of German cars had similar Dynamos. Only VW had a long shaft dynamo, to drive the cooling fan fitted to dynamo one end. Later 1970 some VW owners did not sanctify with head light power to drive in the night. Out of Colombo which was not lighted well like now days. M/s. Bogala Motors which was existing at that time in Fort close to old clock tower left hand side oppesite of Bover's building, until the Central Bank development project started, imported German "HELLA" Head lamp high powered sealed beams 6Volts. That was a conversion kit did not hit the market. I converted few cars VW , Opel, Skoda, Bogward Renault to 12 volts, Some with 12 Volts complete Dynamos of UK made (lucas). VW had to change the Dynamo field coils winding also new dynamo Armature winding. To give 12 Volts high Amperage. VW dynamo turns at very high RPM to cool the engine. With a very large pulley on crank shaft end, therefore slow generating was never a problem. Some other cars had the slow driving on top gear at very slow speeds, lights used to get dim due to dynamo did not compensate the draw of current during night driving. Mainly due to some motorists did not drive vehicles at recommended gears on low speed therefore the generators did not give high amperage. Alternators did very well for this problem. Few years back I had experienced a long wheel base, 4DR5 engine Jeep had this problem. The owner had spend few thousands to convert to duel A/C New complete system, double insulated soft rear hood so that day heat will not come in, same problem when he drives at slow speeds Alternator was not charging enough in the night. I do not do any electrical repairs now days due to my present service in Automobiles. I corrected his problem with minimal cost. Most of my old friends want me to commence Electrical repairs again. Some what I have mentioned are not relevant to the topic, but it is very important to younger generation motorists to know the past era what our motorist faced. Sylvester Wijesinghe Sylvi.

    Ask the seller to renew the license before the sale. Its his responsibility not yours. Why do you want to take someone else's problems to your head? When buying/selling a vehicle: 1. Upto date revenue license - seller's responsibility 2. Getting insurance - buyer's responsibility 3. Filling transfer papers and sending 2 copies to RMV - seller's responsibility 4. Up to date emission certificate - seller's responsibility 5. Luxury tax (if any) - seller's responsibility 6. Getting a valuation (for a lease if required) - buyer's responsibility

    The Korean brands have come a long long way. Their design teams are lead by (or at least have one or two) ex-engineers from the likes of BMW, Porsche, etc...They do seem to have a wide portfolio that appeals to a wide audience (from grand pas to ricers to speed freaks). With the Korean automotive regulations opening up to modifications (which was apparently illegal up to a few years ago). The issue I have with Korean cars is..for some reason they do not seem to age well. Even the vehicles from 4-5 years ago...they just show age. I am talking about cars that have been taken care of...it doesn't rattle or anything....but it just looks old...so hopefully that has changed with the newer models.

    Do this calculation first: Price of a new tyre = Rs. X Value of your life (+ your husband/wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/children lives) = Rs. Y If Rs. X is greater than Rs. Y, use a tube with your tyre If Rs. y is greater than Rs. X, then go get a new tyre immediately It's that simple.

Being a small county surrounded by Sea, we have several advantageous when we consider the air quality. Comparatively no above city air quality was far better than Colombo for me. Dust (Duuvili) is included to PM2.5 & PM10. So AQI covers all.

    If it’s a cell death after it was last parked, then the car simply won’t be able throw any errors or simply do any thing as a losing one cell brings down the total voltage below 10.5V. And no unit is designed to work with this voltage. This can happen for a battery showing good voltage. Has happened to me as well once with my GP5.

    I would say drop the complete Evo body kit idea. It will be senseless for a diesel car (especially when the enthusiasts know that it is a diesel and not an actual conversion or anything). Consider just the basics like side skirts, etc...even the front bumper would be a bit over the top unless you plan to put an inter cooler or something in there. Talking of which...Turbo charging her would be fun . Also...lets talk about suspension upgrades ..brakes ( with the additional power brought on by the turbo goodness)...then tires and wheels
