    Toyota Raize

    Keeping the DCT for outstation drives and early mornings weekends where there is less traffic. For the Colombo traffic Wagon R which is as fast as any super car.
  2. To avoid bottoming out, i need to pre plan all my routes if taking the Corolla it cant even manage hotel car parks with my 3 kids in the back (less than 100kg total)

    Toyota Raize

    In my commutes usually get half of the claimed economy in Japan. This held true for Honda Fit GP5 (12-14kmpl), Wagon R (13-15kmpl) and currently Corolla Sport (8-10kmpl)

    Kia Stonic offerred by Kia Motors Lanka

    DCT fails because of crawling traffic conditions and the way we drive trying to go couple of feet every time the car in front moves. This increase the clutch ware, similar thing can happen in manual transmission as well but we hardly see any manual transmission cars these days. DCT failures are not so common in vehicles used in non congested areas. Ideal for the SL conditions in my view is CVT followed by conventional auto which would be Japs (Toyota/ Suzuki)

    Help with buying a used hybrid car

    How about Honda Civic ES is it too old, or may be even a early FD 2007-9 should be starting around Rs. 3.5 Mn. You may need additional cash to fix few issues
  9. It is calculated on a complex algorithm (formula) based on mileage, temperatures, average speed, number of cold starts etc.. System may not be suitable for SL conditions this is why it is not offered in SL for most vehicles (agent imports) You can disable the system and go by the agent/ manufacturer recommendation for the particular vehicle based on mileage and time. Eg: 40,000 km/ 4 years, 60,000 km / 5 years

    Volkswagen Agent in Sri Lanka

    VW very reliable in UK, USA, NZ, even in Australia When it comes to SL it is full of horror stories, may be they get escalated out of proportions as bad news travel fast. But i guess issues are mostly due to ignorant owners / poor maintenance/ crappy agents

    Toyota Raize first video review

    I used a Picanto for 2 years, ran 35000 km and have no complains on their service. Had only one issue with the throttle body which was replaced under warranty. They said it can be serviced / repaired but advised to replace with no cost what so ever.

    Toyota Raize first video review

    Kia Stonic @ Rs. 4.95 Mn. starting with agent warranty for 5 years 150K Km. looks pretty decent if you can get away from "Toyota" badge and perceived "Made in Japan" mentality.
