    Head Up Display issue

    Who is your warranty provider? Consult with them first. I don't think the agent (A*W) would have the necessary expertise since they dont import HUD fitted car. Asking around wagonR owners club Facebook page is a good way to get more information about it too.

    Difference Between WagonR Stringray & WagonR Premium

    First you need to understand the WagonR lineup. It goes as follows; WagonR FA (non hybrid) WagonR FX (hybrid, cheapest hybrid model, ugly beige interior) WagonR FZ (hybrid) WagonR Stingray (Hybrid,4WD and turbo variants available) WagonR Premium (WagonR FZ imporeted & rebadged by the agent) WagonR Stingaray is the highest grade WagonR you could buy. Radar Brake and HUD (in other models you have to request it as a add-on package)come as standard and interior gets reletively premium touch. WagonR Premium is the WagonR FZ imporeted by A*W. It comes with 4 year 80,000km manufacturer warranty. According to A*W this car's hybrid management system is fine tuned to match our conditioned. I followed up on this and Suzuki Motor Cooperation Japan indeed has conducted severel months long tests here in Sri Lanka prior to launch. You could verify this via wagonR FB groups. Aprt from interior and exterior differences both cars are built on the same chassis and engine/gearbox configuration. You cannot get Radar break add on package on the premium model as manufacturer hasn't tested its practically and suitability (or so they say) on our traffic and road conditions. Instead they they have thrown in a pioneer player with four speaker setup, parking sensors, fog lights, genuine car mats, interior illumination (you know how important these are for our car people😀 To sum it up; If you need the top of the line, all the bells & whistles go for the Stingray. If you need a safe option and not worry about JAAI බායි සෙටිපිකැට්ටු go for the agent imporeted brandnew model.

    Wagon R Hybrid Engine Oil

    It depends; If you bought yours from the authorized agent you will get bellow schedule; 1,000km or 1 month inspection 5,000km or 6 months inspection 10,000km or 1 year full service Then on 5,000km or 6 months service intervals. If you bought grey market it's really hard to give exact schedule as different places give different schedules. However many are falling in line with agent schedule which is mentioned above. This is what it used to be. 1,000km full service 5,000km or 3 months, 6 months or 1 year service intervals.

    Wagon R Depreciation

    These people go nuts whenever I say "machang I get 12 - 14kmpl in city traffic and 19 - 22 kmpl on long distance trips". They cliam I should be able to do more and there must be something wrong with my car. inb4 "ah oka kompani ne. Ape ewa (insert car mudalali name) gena orijinal japan" These are the same guys who keep RPM below 2,000 and say "dukayi Machan ita wada ress karanna". Oh and another thing. They say we should opt to 0w16 to get maximum fuel efficiency.🤐
  6. What's the reason for this? Why shouldn't one run it on the same 20 weight oil it used to run in Japan. What are the reasons and benefits we could gain from moving to a higher viscosity oil?

    Wagon R Hybrid Engine Oil

    Same thing crossed my mind. But I thought "what do I know, these guys have been maintaining cars for lot longer than me. Also I went through both Castrol Magnatec 5w20, 5w30 and Edge 0w20 product data sheets and saw that there are only rather very small differences between the oil properties. I would much appreciate if anybody can further elucidate us on this matter. Oil Viscosity, Kinematic 100 Celsius 5w30 - 9.6 mm²/s 5w20 - 8.7 mm²/s 0w20 - 8.6 mm²/s Oil Viscosity, Kinematic 40C 5w30 - 54 mm²/s 5w20 - 51 mm²/s 0w20 - 45 mm²/s Product data sheet links 5w30 5w20 0w20

    Suzuki Wagon R manual clearly specify 0w16,0w20 or 5w30 fully synthetic (IIRC on "full synthetic" part) and "only" 5w30 & 5,000km service interval for turbo variant.

    Recommended Fuel for Axio hybrid 2017

    Is this true? Can others confirm this?
  12. This is a common issue in the WagonR (yet to confirm on A*W import being free of it) . By common I mean its caused by improper servicing and new model lacking an under-guard. I'm sorry but think you got ripped off by Wasana Garage because Laugfs would service the said part and rectify the issue for just under 10k. Best practice is not to wash undercarriage aggressively.

    Wagon R Hybrid Engine Oil

    Glad to hear it. Fuel figures might drop but it wont be noticeable I guess? At the end of the day if you can afford a 3 mil car you certainly can afford to lose a few kmpl if the outcome is better engine lubrication. But the WagonR crowd, specially the Facebook page members are adamant on using 0w20 and are planning on finding selller/importer for 0w16 oil . Please update this thread with your findings regarding magnatec 5w30
