    Toyota Ceres

    thanks varunatech, early in the morning when i start it does not appear but only after 5, 6km(?after the engine heated enough). it doesnt come all the time, but when the load is high. but when i give a bit gas more the "krrrr krrrr" sound fades. once used a 95 octane fuel where the knock seemed dissappeared and appeared again when using 90 octane. that's how i can explain it. pls help me elaborate. thanks

    406 Vs Gen 2

    i agree don, my budget is around 1.5 to two mil. i love the looks,. bit of performance, comfort and a tinge of elegance. 10km/l is ok for me. the problem is the spares and maintenance. thinking of the D9, i never used to a euro car. so the mechanics im not that familiar with. i saw in one thread d9 is not a good car for daily running, is that because of the maintenance cost? of course im hoping to keep it for another 2 yrs. some say d9 is inherited with some electronic malfunctions and sensor problems where he expenses are very high and not exactly mentioned the common ones. need to know a reliable place for repairs of a Peugeot. i live in awissawella. thanks for helping me guys.
