  2. A Car around 1.9 - 2.0 Million

    Thanks for the Reply LashNeo. From the Forum i learned that familia is the JDM and 323 is the export model. What about BJ5p or BJ3p ? is it a different version of the familia?. Also as you are a current owner may i ask for the market value of the familia or 323 ? I have searched different sites and is it really possible to sell those vehicles in ****.lk prices. What would be the realistic value of this vehicle. pre-facelift version or facelift version of 323.

    Thanks Crosswind. Hope if i could find a properly maintained Cefiro, it would not give much hassle.

    Thanks matroska, How about the spare part availability of the Chevy Cruz? Yeah, I guess the Cefiro would do at most 5 or 6 kmpl in the city.
  5. A Car around 1.9 - 2.0 Million

    Really appreciate your time and effort put in replying our queries. Past few days i was going through the past Forum posts and those were immensely helpful for a novice like me. I got the opportunity to read your expert advice in several posts like Car buying information, How to buy a used car in SL etc. If i may ask, in my list most of the cars are Nissan so that i would be able to get an engine scan etc at A*W. However if i get hands on a Mazda is there a proper place to check the condition of the vehicle (Engine scan etc.) ? I have used Toyota and Nissan previously. However no prior experience in Mazda. Mazda 323 (export mode) or the JDM familiar seems to match my current requirement. May i have few of your experience on this. Thanks

    Thank you for your valuable response. Actually what i meant by that Primera comment was that i was expecting a mileage of around 200,000 + km (more realistic mileage ) considering the age of the vehicle. I felt 110,000 km was simply absurd. So ODO meter should be completely ignored i guess. As you suggested I will look check for the maintenance record of the vehicle. Thank You
  7. Hi Experts, I'm Looking for a Car around Rs 1.9 to 2.0 Mil and as i have office transport i would be mainly using this car during the weekends.7-8 Km/l fuel economy would be fine with me. My greatest concern is reliability as i will be traveling to the Hill country at least once a month . I'm looking for a manual Transmission car with a reasonably good interior. I have searched for the following vehicles and still could not make up my mind to select one. Peugeot 406 Nissan Cefiro (A33) Nissan Primera P11 Nissan Presea Refina Mazda 323 Nissan Pulsar Chevrolet Cruz Nissan N16 I have visited several car sales and most of the cars mileage have been tampered with. Saw a good looking Primera P11 but mileage showed 110,000 . Appreciate your advice on this and if you could give me pros and cons in the models i have mentioned. Thanks
