    2008 Kia Sorento

    Hi, thank you all for your advice. If my budget allowed I would love to go for the Montero sports, Discovery, Prado ..the choice would be limitless but alas that is not possible. \ The Teana would have been a possibility if it was a diesel; I have constraints on how much i spend on fuel. I was using a Toyota Verossa. Lovely car; plenty of space, a nice 6 cylinders under the hood and rear wheel drive ( had it for 7 years). I was pumping 23,000 rs a week and that was a bit too much. Not only is my budget limited i have to think of cost of fuel, space and prefer a vehicle used sparingly. Hence the decision to go in for a Santa fe or Sorento (leaning a lot towards Santa fe). This is why a 2 WD or 4WD did not matter much. on a lighter note with my criteria the best would be Hiace van..... space... diesel, price, reliability......BUT, the Wife simply won’t have it. Once again.Thank you all.

    2008 Kia Sorento

    Hi, I am looking at buying a 2008 4WD, Diesel low mileage Kia Sorrento. The 4WD is not much concern as i do not intend in doing any offroading. The budget, mileage, fuel efficiency and YOM is important. The mechanic tells me after 100,000 km the engine and gearbox start giving trouble. Further to this any opinions about the Hyundai Santa fe 2WD 2007 model? Which is more fuel efficient .... The Kia Sorrento or Hyundai Santa Fe ( Both Diesel ) Any advice, Thanks
  4. Hi, The Wii my kids play with is hooked on to a hard disk for games and you have to go through the Homebrew channel to access the games. It was working fine till yesterday and then its suddenly stopped. Now the screen does not go beyond the bubble screen and there is a cone shaped icon blinking on the bottom right hand corner of the screen. i checked the HD by hooking it on to the computer and it was accessed fine: including the game partition. Any ideas on what the problem could be or any one who could help resolving the issues...... Thanks and cheers... Dinuke

  7. I recently had the privilege of seeing how the best drivers in sri lanka park their vehicles and took some pictures to share with you all. Here they are. I also had the rare chance of seeing the perfect use of lanes at traffic lights. Hope these pictures help those not versed in this fine art.

    Yamaha Tzr125

    I have used this particular bike. At that time the most expensive item to replace was the shock absorber. Overhauling the engine was pretty straight forward and reasonably priced then. Do not know if parts are still available. It would be difficult to miss a piston lap if ever there was one. Make sure the power valve unit is working well. The bike is useless in my opinion without a good working power valve. I believe the bike had a CDI. Wonder if they are still available if it packs up. Cheers...Good luck>

    Fuel Consumption - Smart Cab

    Let me throw this in to the mixture.....how would it things change if this vehicle is being used on estate roads......
  13. Hi, Has anyone got a clue on what the fuel consumption of the 3liter (Diesel) version Toyota Smart Cab is. My friend is getting around 7 km per Liter and most of his running is done out of colombo; Is this acceptable. If not what could be the problem. Thanks

    Gear Selector Sensitivity

    I believe that the clicking sound comes from the relay and that is why we initially thought it was an issue with the relays. Cheers

    Gear Selector Sensitivity

    had a similar issue with my car. The car would not start up even though i had a new battrey in it. thought initially it was the relays and when the mechanic could not find a fault with it he checked the starter motor, there was no problem there either. Then he kept shifting and moving the gear knob while turing the car over and it started. He said it was the auto-gear slector problem and started checking it. True enough; The wire harness connectors leading to the auto-gear slector were loose. Did a bit of soldering and now the car is right as rain.
