  1. What can I say? Life's been tough after the end trio left top gear. But on a serious note I don't think I will be paying more for the same thing just because it's a sporty brand. Sorento is a bit too big for my liking. It has a bit of an uncle vibe to it too.
  2. Hi Guys, Long time no see 😀 So im interested in buying an compact suv for around 4-5 million range. Currently my main options are the tucson and sportage. Im thinking of going for a crdi awd. Not that i will be going off road but i might end up traveling out of colombo in some rough roads so the ground clearance will come in handy. Looked at a few past threads but most are too old to get anything useful. 1. Are there any know issues in these 2 ? 2. I sort of like the facelift over the 2011 model. Was there anything other than lights that they had changed in the facelift ? 3. Also was there a turbo and non turbo variant of the CRDi 4. Any other options you guys think i should consider ? Im not too worried about fuel economy and numbers but needs to be reliable. And can someone explain to me why the sportage in general has a higher asking prices than the tucson, considering they are almost identical 🤔
  3. Best case, Atf is old and is too thin. Worst case your reverse clutch pack is worn out. It's better get a repair done than to buy a recon gearbox. Try changing the Atf first. Sent from my FLA-LX2 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  4. That doesn't sound normal unless you are on an incline. Might be an issue with the gearbox, better get it checked. It can also be something simple like break binding but better safe than sorry. Sent from my FLA-LX2 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  5. That's why you should always use jack stands Sent from my FLA-LX2 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  6. When did you repair the gearbox? If its within 6 months they will repair again. Check with chandana. Sent from my FLA-LX2 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  7. The price seems quite ok but are you sure about the mileage? A. 10 year old car that has only been driven 5000km every year? Have a look at the previous emissions reports and check the mileage. Also personally, lady driven and doctor driven are two of the biggest red flags for me. I know people in this category who don't even know how much air needs to be pumped into their tires. I would be extra cautious of the previous maintainance records, mainly check the Atf change intervals. Sent from my [device_name] using http://AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  8. Idle rpm is "6000" ? [emoji33] Sent from my [device_name] using http://AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  9. Have you and the previous owners changed Atf every 40k or did you just change when this issue came? Sounds to me like your forward clutch pack is worn out, take it to Nilwala motors and let them have a look. Sent from my [device_name] using http://AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  10. They have projector lights AFAIK. Probably led in them not sure though. Sent from my [device_name] using http://AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  11. If you look at the wheels at moment of overturning they are pointed to left. My guess is it was probably overtaking the mazda and getting back into the lane, in the meantime the bus brakes and the Mazda hit it from the left rear causing it to overturn.

  12. Ha ha I saw [emoji28]I avoided the forum because I saw an influx of people like well..... Ummmm..... [emoji16]
  13. Well if it comes to replacing the motor it will just cost around 2000-3000. I got one from ebay for $3 though [emoji2]
  14. Lol where have I said anything about sports cars. Sportier cars are not tha same as purpose built sports cars. And are you seriously comparing a rear wheel drive rear engine 911 to a front wheel drive swift? [emoji28] Can you explain this using centre of gravity
