    MG ZS 2018

    Hi Quiet Thank you for the feedback. In fact one of my friends already placed the order and insisting me on that. Yes, you may be correct, because of the low price tag compared to other suv/crossovers made in Japan and Korea. My main concern is the fuel economy figures, which they claim 6L per 100km. Any MG users in the forum and comment on this as well as the engine performances. Cheers

    Suzuki Wagon-R 2015 Hybrid Battery failure

    Thank You for all the information. Finally it is replaced with a reconditioned battery with a six months warranty. Before that car was running without the hybrid battery for a while and it ruined the regular battery as well. As you aware s-ene charging system draw the power from hybrid battery during the pick up. If hybrid battery is dead, system draw the power from regular battery (though I was not expecting) . which exhaust the regular battery and ending it soon. Wishing All of you a Very Happy New Year with Good Health, Wealth and Happiness. !!

    Toyota Vitz 1000cc Vibration issue

    Hi Mate, Not sure whether you could fix the issue so far. Is your issue with an abnormal vibration as car is moving slowly but not idling ? What was the rpm (roughly) at the highest level of vibration ? Do you get the same vibration when you move at higher speeds ( increase / reduce or same) ? Note on 3 cylinder vs 4 cylinder: As others commented , dynamic balance of the 3 pod engines are lower that of 4 pods due the angle of the cam with respect to the firing of a 4-stroke engine. This is the reason why not many car manufactures concerned on 3-pods several years back. But 3 pod engines have several advantages over 4 pods, such as lower friction (less surface to volume ratio), lower weight of the engine block, lower, more room for cabin space and eventually lower production cost. Also they offer better fuel economy over 4 pods. Same time there are drawbacks such as vibration, low torque and power , high rpm. But with recent developments, most of these dynamic balance issues have overcome remarkably. Incorporation of turbo charging and integrated motors (hybrid) have solved the issues with slow pickup as well. Thanks

  10. Hi Folks, Do you know whether the Sri Lankan vehicle registration statistics (brand, model, month of registration, quantity, etc) are available to the public ? Time to time I read news articles publishing these statistics. Perhaps publicly disclosing these information may not be allowed by automobile agents, importers. ?? http://www.dailymirror.lk/article/Reconditioned-car-registrations-surge-in-January-146672.html

    Stuck with Gen1 Kia Sportage

    As Rumesh mentioned, most probably it can be faulty idle control valve. Why don't you take it to a professional ? Following threads may be helpful https://itstillruns.com/kia-sportage-idle-problem-symptoms-8054400.html https://www.2carpros.com/questions/2002-kia-sportage-engine-27270893 https://www.2carpros.com/questions/kia-sportage-1999-kia-sportage-car-dies-when-brakes-are-pressed-amp-ta
  12. Agreed. I also used to do it. But modern full synthetic oils can perform higher mileages without a significant loss in their properties compared to conventional oils. Specially for b/n or very low mileage, it is recommended to go for thinner oils , difficult to find conventional oils in that viscosity range.

    Express-Way Updates

    Presently constructions of the Kurunegala interchange is underway. Which is located behind P&S in the Kandy-Kurunegala road just after Kurunegala Station. I visited the site twice and you can see a massive concrete bridge girder manufacturing yard too. According to the engineers at site, current allocations are only up to the Muttetugala Station in Colombo-Dambulls road. They have started constructions between Pothuhera and Kurungeala stretch also. Google Satellite images have not been updated since the start of constructions, otherwise could get a better idea.

    If you can afford go for Jap brand. They offer better performance, comfort ability.
  15. This will be taxed under <2000 cm3 hybrid tax bracket. So it is 2000 x 5000 = Rs 10.0 m. Better get down under a permit. Cheers
