    FAMILY CAR BELOW 4M

    Hi Experts Need your opinion to choose a family vehicle. I travel around 60 KM daily to work and back mostly on the hi-way and make long distance trips ones a month with family. Preferably a car that's manufactured after 2011. Should be able to stretch the budget a bit more if it's worth it. I'm trying to keep away from the Hybrids at time. The Toyotas seems over priced so I kind of selected the following models: KIA Sportage Ford Ecosport Korando Honda FD4 Hyundai Elantra What I'm looking for Comfortable/ Reliability Maintains and spare parts After sales value after 3 years Fuel above 10 Km/L However, I'm not fixed with any particular model If there are other options which you think I should explore please let me know. Will be great if you'll shed some light.

    Thanks for info. The not so smooth transmission will be an issue. I also came across Ford Fiesta Eco boost 2016. Any thoughts on this specialy the gear box compatibility on our local roads.

    Car for 4.5M

    Hi Guys, Thinking of selling my Honda fit GP1 -10th Anniversary and looking for recomendations for a family car / suv between 4-4.5M. Few models caught my attention was Kia Rio, SWIFT, BOLENO, AUDI a1, civic 2008, KIA sportage 2011. Not worried about fuel but concerned in safety, power, reliability and handling. Drive 60Km per day on week days to work on hi-way. Ones a month to Kandy. Please share your thoughts. I would sell it off in 3 years.
  10. Hi Kira, I won't be able to answer your question because I have not got any experience with the KIA sportage, but seeking your opinion on the KIA sportage, I'm hoping to buy a 2011 model so your input will be highly valued as a KIA user. Do share the pros and cons please.

    Car for 4.5M

    Thankx Flying Fox the informative write up. I heard the Honda GP5, Grace and Vezel have the same clutch issue, In fact a guy who bought a Vezel sold his one after coming across this issue in 2015 and another replaced the gearbox on his Grace last month the mileage was 30k. Stafford had mentioned it's due to the city traffic that these gear box fails. However not heard the same from GP5 how far this can be true? Thanks zeem for your recon on Suzuki xbee but it's not my style. ?

    Car for 4.5M

    Yes are correct A1 is 55m. It should me KIA Sportage 2011. Today i test drove Boleno the pickup was impressive. The breaks were a bit hard which resulted in more stiff ride compaired to the smoothness on my current honda fit.

  22. Hi Guys, Seeking for your expert openion in buying/ changing my car. My budget is 2.7 M and my expections are Low maintainance Economical (around 10 - 13 kmpl) Resale value My initial idea was to get a Honda Fit Hybrid (2nd hand) but thought its maintainence and battery replacement will cost me a foutune. Audi A4 - 2003, Mazda - 2004 caught my interest, will be great if anyone out there who is using a older model give some pointers on the Fuel / Maintainence / Spare Parts cost on these models or on similar range. I'm looking for a somwhat bigger car. Hope to see your expert openion on this. Emac
