  1. Hi, I was also checking the prices for spare parts from agents and MM. The MM prices are way lower. But they claim they have genuine parts. Due to the price gap, bit of curious to decide whether to buy from MM or not. Appreciate if someone can share the opinion or recommendation on MM. TIA
  2. Hi Tilvin, First of all I don't understand the point of comparing a Diesel Van like KDH 220 to a small car like Daihatsu Mira for personal use. But since you asking, the maintenance is much higher on KDH being a Diesel vehicle. Spare parts are expensive. absolutely no point of talking about fuel economy comparison with a 660cc petrol engine vs 2500/3000cc turbo diesel engine. Mira would be cheaper in every aspect. Thanks !
  3. Hi RaveeJaya, Thanks for the valuable recommendation.
  4. Hi, I own a 2010 Hilux Vigo 3L cab. I was travelling down to Colombo from Matara via southern Expy and my speed was about 100 Kmph. I went behind a passenger bus for about 5-10 min and wanted to overtake the bus since it's blocking my view and that's kinda annoying. So I pushed my cab about 110-115 Kmph and suddenly I felt a power drop (lost some pulling power). When I checked the dashboard, I noticed that the "check engine" warning popped up. I again backed up to the left lane and tried several times pushing the gas but the vehicle is not responding to the level I push the accelerator. Then I reached to the Welipanna Service Area and switched off the engine and checked for any oil leakages or any unusual smells coming out (from wire shorts etc). But couldn't find anythin wrong. So I started the engine after about 10 minutes and noticed that the check engine warning was disappeared. Then I checked the status of the pulling power at some vacant area of the car park and it was came back to normal. Then I started my journey again and the vehicle was behaving normal and the previous pulling power was restored. Tried up to 140Kmph and had no issue. What I wanted to ask from the experts here is, I suspect something went wrong with my Turbo and came back to normal. Is anyone out there who experienced such issue? Can there be any other reason causing sudden power drops like this? Thanks in Advance Kasun W
  5. Hi, Give a try to Dunlop Ecopia. They are very good and gives better mileage too.
  6. Thanks for sharing your valuable expertise. Seems like better to stick with the 31" shoes.
  7. Yes you are correct. This cab is already added mods from 255's to 31's. That's why I need to get to know the ability of stock parts to hold the 33's. Thank you very much for the valuable information.
  8. I'm using a Toyota Hilux Vigo Cab. It has 31x10.5x15 A/T tyres and those are almost over. Planning to replace all 4 tyres. I want to know the pros and cons on up sizing the tyres to 33x10.5x15 A/T. Are there any bad after effects in terms of fuel consumption and mileage calculation? seeking for expert advice on this. Thanks in advance.
  9. Are there any well known issues of this Japanese version?
  10. Yes I'm referring the model until 2008. It was made in Japan. The new ones (from 2010 I guess) are from Thailand. What I really wanted to know was the availability of a 3000CC diesel engine for the Japanese Montero Sport with Manual Transmission.
  11. Hi ! Sorry to bring up an old thread. Is there a 3000cc version of the Japanese Montero Sport? If Yes, great if anyone can share the fuel figures as well. Thanks !
  12. Vehicle : Toyota Hilux Vigo Transmission Type : Manual Engine Capacity : 3000 CC VN Turbo Fuel : Super Diesel Km per Ltr (city/long distance) : 10-11/13-14
  13. Hi All, I have a Toyota Hilux Vigo cab fitted with SUV Plus canopy. There is a serous water leakage due to the bad quality of rubber beading between the cab body and the canopy. When I compare other canopy brands like Carryboy and Alpha, they have a clear separation between cab body and canopy with a glass. And they have not used any rubber beading or Silicone gum to patch the gap between body and canopy. So the water does not come in to the truck bed. What I want to know from you all is, what do you recommend from following; 1. Replace the rubber beading to stop the water leak 2. Modify the existing Canopy by fixing a glass to clearly separate canopy and body. Also kindly let me know if you know a good place to get done the Option (2) if you recommend that. Thank you !
  14. Hi Magnum, Actually this is perfect. But people in SL takes car is "posh" than a buddy van or batta van. No matter the options you have or the power, Turbos etc... Batta van is still a batta van for sri lankans. People here in SL usually don't buy vehicles for the purpose. They do it as a trend, sadly.
  15. But I believe this is a good choice if you mostly running in Colombo. With the prices, way better if you could go for this Japanese Suzuki rather than going for a Indian/ Malaysian or Chinese branded car considering how the market behaviors in SL.
  16. Hi n00b There is already a thread discussing about the WagonR Hybrid. have a look. http://forum.autolanka.com/topic/16831-suzuki-wagon-r-japanese-car/
  17. Hi tiv, Thanks for the reply. Looks like the hooks can be easily fitted by a "Weldin Baas" or local Garage.
  18. Dear Friends, I need to find out a place where I can buy cargo management accessories for my Cab. This is a serious issue when I have small amount of cargo at the back coz it starting rolling all over the bed liner. For example think of a situation where you carry a Gas Cylinder. On the internet I found some accessories (shown below) and wondering whether they are available to buy in SL. So if anyone knows a place to buy similar items or professional place to get these done, Kindly share your valuable information. Thanks.
  19. Agree with you. Thanks for the additional information tiv.
  20. True that. The smart cabs comes with same 1KD FTV engines same as the double cabs with 2500 and 3000 cc capacities. So probably cannot have different power figures.
  21. Yes you can register it as Dual Purpose.
  22. Hi All, How about the maintenance of these Cars? I mean being a Suzuki, can we get the periodic maintenance (like servicing) from A*W? or are there any other specialized places? Expecting an advice coz I'm thinking of bring down Wagon R Hybrid. Thanks
  23. Hi isurujosh, Yes I know. That's why I fought to correct that issue at least. But in the other hand, going to courts for this kind of case can be painful and worse than paying the due taxes.
  24. Hi Devinda_Z Yes you are absolutely correct. It is Insurance company's responsibility to collect the taxes (if applicable) for any vehicle. And DMT is easily washing their hands with the authoritative power they have. Even they are not ready to inquire how my vehicle got transferred TWICE when it has due taxes to pay. Disgusting !!! But in my case, the former insurance company have been paying the taxes and suddenly stopped due to a circular issued by DMT. The problem is that the said circular is wage and because of that any party can define it with their own way due to lack of information. So DMT have admitted that there is a problem and they will issue a new circular soon.
