    "You don't know how to reply to retards who ask 'why did u buy a ford?' - my usual reply is - machan, that's my taste. I like my ass to be pampered. Would u like to touch it and see how smooth it is?'" ha ha .. Some fellows always ask these kind of "stupid" questions.. superb answer machan.. !

    Ford Mondeo 2004

    totally agree with you.. I bought one resonantly and very comfortable car. When i went in the southern highway to galle (to & from), hardly you can notice it is going around 100-120 (as still you feel like as if it is going around 50-60 ! Average petrol consumption is around the rate you have mentioned in traffic (I may be able to give some proper figure soon ) Yes you will have to depend on ebay (UK) for most parts (as per the previous owner as well ) but general stuff like vipers, bulbs etc you can use common once available in market in most cases. things like brake pads, plug leads & injectors you can order at low cost from ebay uk rather than getting from local shops which will be bit costly. (Experts, pls correct me if i`am wrong !)

    Ford Mondeo

    last week I bought a ford mondeo 2003 (2000cc). It is a very comfortable car but keep in mind that spares r scarce and seems to be some what costly (this is the reason why the price is around that range for a that much comfortable vehicle as far as I understood ) as per previous owner but most of the things you can order from ebay (use ebay uk) and get them fixed with a mechanic familiar with ford. Their r couple of mechanics in Piliyandala (Once i get hold of the details i will post here as previous owner will introduce me to those mechanics ). If you have a good budget for maintenance (in case some issue arise) this is a good vehicle to own. But if you consider availability of spares, cost and also second hand market, then go for a well maintained toyota. Specially toyota corolla AE 110 (I also tried initially to find one but it was too difficult to find a quality one)

    it was a bit hard to find a good toyota corolla 110 with price etc so while i was searching, Got hold of a Ford Mondeo 2003 for a reasonable price just before the price adjustments . For repairs n stuff i will have to depend on couple of mechanics used by previous owner while some parts i could get from ebay ( which i checked prior to getting hold of it ) Also hope I can get some ford experts advice who r at autolanka. Seems to be a good vehicle & almost fell in love with it ! When ever i park it somewhere i used to look at it couple of times before leaving. =) Will post some photos in a new thread.

    Posting for the first time after registering. =) Well I`am also looking to get my first car with almost same budget and req.as Shalika. JF I wish to go for a Elantra or Kia Rio (Korean stuff !, I`am aware that it has low 2nd hand market ), Why do you say that beginners has to stick to Japnease cars ? Any exact reason ? Will a 1995 Toyota(used/recond) more reliable than a Kia/Hyundai(Used not reconditions) made in 2000-2001 ?
