    Auto Gear Shifting

    Service brake = Brake Pedal next to the accelerator E-brake = Hand-brake/Parking brake 1. Apply Service brake fully 2. Shift the car to N 3. Apply E-brake fully 4. Release the service brake, Make sure the car is stationary (make sure the car is held by the E-brake) 5. Apply service brake again 6. Shift the car to P 7. Release the service brake 8. Switch the engine off Get used to this routine. You'll be doing it this way by muscle memory in no time

    92 or 95 octane for the Suzuki Alto Turbo RS?

    Well, at least the Alto might have better acceleration than the CS1... I guess Pity your father got rid of the CS before you had a chance to drive it... you wouldn't have let it go if you got a chance to "taste" it properly

    Would your father veto this one https://i k m a n.lk/en/ad/mitsubishi-lancer-glx-cs1-2008-for-sale-colombo-8 I mean it's perfect for your requirement and budget, most probably it's the first owner From what I can see it's a carbon copy of this when it comes to maintenance and ownership, only newer

    Normal operating coolant temperature

    94°C sounds normal, the thermostat of my 1600CC fully opens at 95°C

    Can 6 people ride in an allion or premio

    How many times have you bottomed out your 121 (And the Allion)? I've bottomed out mine only once during my 4 years of ownership. Even then there were no other people in the car, I just tried to go down a very steep gradient which wasn't meant for a car to go anyway... scratched one of the 2 metal bars running under the car, no other damages

    Car within 2.2Mn - 3.2mn

    If the LX badging is factory it might be a Euro import or an AU import If you can get the VIN you can use a VIN decoder to find out where the car has been manufactured Other possibilities: Aftermarket badge / Rear dicky door replaced with one with a spoiler (recon part shops offer to trade-in the dicky door with no spoiler + cash for a dicky door with spoiler) / rear dicky door replaced due to car being rear-ended / entire rear half replacement due to a severe crash

    Original Post : http://www.elakiri.com/forum/showpost.php?p=24224073&postcount=79 Moral of the story : Failure to do your homework before buying a car could spell disaster regardless of the brand. Had he inquired about buying a GDI 4G15 he would've learned that it was a bad idea.

    Car within 2.2Mn - 3.2mn

    It would certainly do 8-9kmpl in the city limits if not more

    Why don't you go for a CS3? GP1 has an inherent oil burning issue

    Mazda 323 BJ-II Astina SP20 Hatch

    Jokes aside, congratulations m8! Seeing as you have a Demio in Sri Lanka I can totally see you buying this as a grocery getter for your wife (Although a VRX along with the RA would have made your garage look totally badass and drool-worthy)

    You guys make me feel like I'm abusing the car by carrying 5 or more people on a frequent basis

    To me too... they don't have that attitude most auto-technicians seem to have, the notion that they don't have to listen to the customer or take his concerns seriously because they're the ones who have automotive degrees and overalls and the safety gear and whatnot. They are exceptionally open about what they're doing to our cars (they let you stay next to your car and observe everything) and what they're putting into our cars.

    This is a "JDM" problem. I had the exact same issue back when I owned a Belta while a colleague who owned a Yaris claimed he never had this issue.

    If you're planning a one-off trip, it's fine, you can manage 4 people in the back. If you're planning to buy a vehicle for a family of 6, NO, Premio isn't the vehicle you're looking for.

    Any particular reason not to get the full service from UNIMO too? After the engine wash incident and threatening a customer with violence I thought people would avoid autom**aj like the plague
