    Honda Gp1 hybrid.

    What are the symptoms of this oil leaking/slidging issue
  2. I have a honda fit GE6 with a millage of 69500km.I have done the services on time.But from last week noticed engine jerks/knocks when accelerating but in lower speeds and idle its smooth. Please enlighten me on this problem and how to solve it I didn't use the car for about 1 week. When I stopped the car fuel level was almost empty. Then I started it and went to the fuel station.Can this cause any injector blocks from dirt from fuel tank. This is the only mishsp prior to the problem. Please I need your expert opinion Thanks
  3. Thanks for your ideas I did an engine tune up and a scan.Engine runs very smoothly in idle. But still the problem exists.The fellow who did it told there's an issue with the gear shifting.Anyway I have done gear oil changing on time with recommended oil.Now a little worried.When the gear is in sports mode shifting is smoother and there's no slipping of gear on slopes even in D.
  4. Thanks Is there anyone around Dehiwela who is good to show
  5. I m hoping to buy an Alion or premio 260 2010 to 2012 model and confused with the price range Please be kind enough to enlighten me on the value of the car according to the current market value Thanks

    Hybrid vs Non-hybrid

    It's damn hard to find a reasonably priced vehicle.I was searching for a car during the last 3 weeks where I settled down with a Fit GE6.Although no one adviced it was a little difficult to make the mind to buy a used hybrid some way or the other you tend to think about the battery Other problem is most of the non hybrids seems not worth the price

    Best car for 3.5M

    I felt like driving a toy car.May be its smaller compared to the Axio and yeah when turning in corners and taking bends it felt much easier.

    Best car for 3.5M

    No. YOM 2008.Well l bought this for my wife.Compared to my Axio handling is easier but more thirstier than the 1.5 Axio.Today took it for work and in heavy traffic did only 9 .3 Km/l Same traffic conditions Axio does 10.5 Km/l .Heard Fit GE6 does more but seems its just a myth.I got all maintenace records also so seems to be a well looked after car.

    Toyota Axio A/c Compressor Valve

    I have an axio 141 G grade,which I m using for the past 8 months. Recently I noticed that the ac gets on and off while driving that also infrequently. I showed it to an ac technician and he told me to replace the compressor. I m a little confused because when the ac is working there's no issue in cooling at all when it get off even it on's quickly. Please help me to solve my problem and advice whether to go forward with the a.c. technicians suggestion.

    Vehicle Leasing Process

    When did you handed over the documents ? And did you check whether they have put for transfer. Normally they a leasing company or bank should release the cheque on the same evening on the day they put for transfer.So you better check with them whether they have put for transfer and if so demand for the cheque Some places drag the thing where I had a bad experience with Soft..... finance when I sold my car in 2012
  18. Hi all experts, I m thinking of buying a manual car for about 500k and converting it to auto. Because my wife is having license to drive automatic cars only and she is scared of driving the Axio 141 which I'm using. I have about 600k in my hand and don't want to go for any lease or loan.I need some expert opinion on; 1. whether to buy a manual car and convert it to automatic, in which case what will be the most suitable car to do so and which model engine and gear box will suit it. ( I have one car in mind that is March K10 but don't have any idea which type of engine and gear box will suit it ) 2. whether to apply for a manual license for my wife and teach her to drive a manual car and then to buy a small manual car. Please advice me on this and all your expert opinions are highly appreciated

    Thanx I hope mileage is genuine
  20. Yeah that's why I was thinking of a march K10 and to convert it to auto or to buy something like an older maruti and teach her to drive a manual car. I also think the second option is more practical but still I feel driving a manual car in this heavy colombo traffic is too much to handle for my wife
  21. It's has a long history mate, she not driving the axio. One year back I had a Corolla 141 and I bought her a March K11 as soon as she got her license. She was happily using it and we wanted to buy a newer car. So we agreed upon buying a FIT GP5 and so we did. The agreement was both of us to use it, although I don't like a hatchback. At the end I was the only user of it as my wife never drove it, telling it is too new for her to damage it. So I became the driver of the house with all responsibilities of taking children to school, classes , practices ,then smallest of shopping falling on me. With my work it was becoming harder for me. Then again we decided to have 2 cars and we sold the FIT GP5 and bought an axio. Following which we had to incur some unavoidable high expenses . So some money from the car had to be spent on that. Now I have only 600k in my hand to buy my wife a car, where an automatic car is not possible.

    Cvt Gear Box

    Thanx Is there any early signs which I can be alert on, that shows a 141 CVT gear box is in need of attention before it fails .Because I have a busy schedule at work and use the car daily, and I don't want to get into trouble on the road and arrange towing,find mechanics on a busy day.

    Thanks mate.It was under first owners name while used by the cousin and when I asked from the user about gear oil change,he never gave me a proper answer. What the Toyota fellows told me is they didn't wanted to do the oil change themselves,as there could be an issue as I was told. The car was registered in sri lanka in 2011 December. So is there any possibility before exporting from Japan they would have done a gear oil change in which case the mileage of running the car without oil change would be less than 86000 km
