  1. Went to inspect a 2007 Allion near Colombo. When I saw the ad from a sale site and called, the owner said he is the registered second owner, with genuine mileage 93000km, service records with 100% condition. Then came to know that he and I had graduated from the same university, same year batch. Then without hesitation today I went to inspect it with a friend. Man oh man!!! The car has been fully painted from a makabass. Therefore the paint is like "hodi gala wage". Even the front left side had met with an accident and the signs can clearly be seen. Engine had oil dripping marks.The car took so long to start due to bad battery. Went on a test drive. Bad hub razors,brake problems,so and so...So disappointed...Then left the place thinking how good is my current ride.

      :D it all depends on what your expectations are I guess - you'd be surprised to know that there are 2018 cars that cost about 6 miilon where you have to twist the key to start it - I kid you not!

      @matroska yeah I know mate that even some land cruiser do. Anyway I’ll wait and try to persuade my father’s friend to sell his Luxel or search patiently till a good allion shows up for sale

      I was in the hunt for an Allion sometime back, some of the cars I came across were appalling. Their interior condition was worse than my '92 Bluebird.
