    Recirculating condemned cars

    Yes, by "it" I meant this whole fiasco, including the name of the car sale.

    Recirculating condemned cars

    Once she gets her replacement car take it to the social media with the evidence she has collected. Make sure another unsuspecting buyer won't fall into the same scam.

    Warranty And Free Service

    It's not like Europeans are way better at it, apparently, VAG's DSG transmission has a high failure rate in India just like Honda's DCT in Sri Lanka... But unlike the majority of Japanese and European consumers, Sri Lankans run their cars to the ground so Japanese cars becoming less and less reliable is more of a concern to us - and the manufacturers don't seem to give two hoots. #BringBack121sand240s

    Warranty And Free Service

    You can buy a recon Toyota with the agent's warranty in Sri Lanka now. Toyota Lanka has started importing used vehicles certified by Toyota Japan to Sri Lanka.

    Reliable JDM auction places?

    Well Toyota Lanka imports used JDM Toyotas now. Not sure where they get those from, maybe auctions? http://www.toyota.lk/__trashed-2/

    ## Post Whoring - Part 3 ##

    Did you ever try Hot Pursuit 2010? Loved it to bits with all those weapons (EMP, Spike Strip, Jammers etc) and stuff. Online gameplay was awesome too.

    To buy my 1st car

    You can safely assume that a KIA Picanto would be reliable as much as a Japanese alto if not more over time.

    Suzuki Wagon R

    Well, the general consensus is that if you're using fully synthetic oil, OCI should be 10,000kms/1 year. OFC the agent would advise you to change oil every 5k kms or 6 months, double the profit for them after all. Guess they would threaten you with voiding your warranty if you do otherwise.

    It's Mitsubishi Rally Red (my cover pic)

    Tips of Maintaining a Black Car

    Waxing helps, it fills up microscopic swirl marks and prevents further damage - My 5 year old car is mostly free of swirl marks compared to most newer cars

    Kia Picanto vs Wagon R (both brand new)

    YES. Aside from obvious safety issues, reselling a lower grade Picanto will be difficult, potential customers would definitively be put off by the lack of ABS in a car made in 2019.

    Anything & Everything About Coolant......

    The main reason for different coloring is to avoid people mixing different kinds of coolant. There are several kinds of coolant - IAT, OAT, HOAT, Recycled, etc etc. Mixing 2 kinds of coolant is not recommended. Refer to your users manual to select the proper coolant for your car. It should say something like this: (This is the recommendation for my car, yours could differ) "Ethylene glycol based non-silicate, non-amine, non-nitrate and non-borate coolant with long-life hybrid organic acid technology (HOAT)."

    Mitsubishi Lancer CK

  14. Axio non-hybrid - Reliable, no-nonsense people carrier, sounds like the obvious choice 240 - Good choice if you can find an exceptional example (1/2 owners, Service records from day 1, etc) Nissan Bluebird - No idea FD1 - Looks great, drives great Mazda 3 - Looks great, drives great, better fuel efficiency than the FD1
