  1. OMG the horror stories on 1KR-FE vibration issues Ive ditched the idea of 1L toyota ! Are suzuki 1L, honda 1L engines fall into the same category or its only toyota ? my new choices MUST be 4 pots 1. Preface-lift vitz 1.3 2. Second gen vitz 1.3 (bola vitz)
  2. Harriers are expensive, I don't think they fit my budget ! even a 2006-2007 model ! The issue is even 30kmph coroners are unbearable let alone 40 ! But I agree its a decent vehicle for driving around kandy ! but for winding roads I am not sure ! What car do you own ? @iRage Again I like the idea of Terios/Rush ! Im going to search the forums for old posts
  3. Thank you for the reply Ultra racing are they based in Malaysia ? I just wanna corner at 40-50 kmph not planning on attacking apexes and racing lines My question is even in 40kmph is there lot of body roll ?
  4. I did not know that ! GR and GRMN are two different vehicles ! No interest in them I was just bumping ideas Ive stopped looking for the new vitz, my idea is not pre face lift 2016 vitz I will try to find a 1.3 if I cant get it I am settling down for a 1.0 This one
  5. Yeap that sounds good I will testdrive and may be go for a vitz 1.0 I thought vitz only came 1.0 and 1.6 GRMN they do have vitz 1.3 isnt it ! https://www.tc-v.com/used_car/toyota/vitz/?fid=2017&sds=1300 Any guess on how much it would cost to bring down a 1.3 UPDATE - LOL obviously not now only when SL opens up imports or I saw some 2015 1.3 on i*man ! may be go for a used one !
  6. @matrosk frequent travel on narrow roads + pot holes @Supra_Natural Drove a 2007 mazda 3 I love them mazdas, even though its a great car unfortunately I am sticking with the mainstream crappy models for resell value safety & spare parts even for every I faced a oil burning trouble and fixing it was a difficult issue had to go to garage and wait all day @iRage What model year vitz are you talking about ? cuz RS versions are only available for older models isnt it current one has a GRMN trim I like the Daihatsu Terios idea ! if its FWD I am okay with it every's and most RWD vans lack rear wheel traction ! BTW @GK_007 I agree on your point ! it is subjective, I should plan on renting couple of these cars and driving to nuwara eliya If I arrange my list my priority is 1. Kandy Nuwara eliya travel 2. Rear passenger comfort (wife and kid goes from right to left in every if I take a corner at 40 kmph, I have slow down to 20kmph for corners ) 3. I might compromise on ground clearance but not on the compact Swift, Passo, Tank & Terios BTW for me 40kmph cornor is more than enough Im not a street racer ! I guess the issue is moving from Every I might feel all of the above cars has less body roll I am trying to pick yalls brains to get to better decision ! Does UK model swift has enough ground clearance ? without the body kit ?
  7. This is a rant + seeking advice so bare with me also I have read most of the threads on comparing these cars but still I have specific doubts My use case - 1 Weekend drive kandy to nuwara eliya (Every week) 2 Driving within gampola/nawala pitiya suburbia ! I really like what I have now its an AWD DA64 Every wagon, its small, compact, Lot of space K van with 64hp thats more than enough for me. Also I really like the AWD its entry level but helped me lot of times (every RWD vans have this issue of rear wheel spin) The bummer is body roll its unbearable ! People are telling me to go for big tires wider (boku) alloy wheels, nope I want things to be stock (will change alloy wheels of correct size but not wider ones ) Now mine does 8kmpl city with 4 passengers and long drive 9-10kmpl thats okayish for me My budget is around 3.5 - 4.5 Million but I am looking for practicality (A to B, dicky space, less body roll, basic options, compact vehicle) My choices I love the new swift but it lacks ground clearance 120mm is not enough 😟 New vitz hmmm all of you guys were complaining about it comparing it for a CR42 so meh.. (145 mm is enough but what about rear passenger seats and dicky space ) New Passo same engine but if I get a boon I can save a lot, BANG for BUCK ! (concern is body roll ?) Tank/Roomy spacious vehicle (again concern is body roll ?) Also vitz 2010-2012 1.3 or RS versions its an old car but I like the RS version I have no issue with having more hp, its just compact ones are most of the time lacks hp UPDATE - I dont like turbos Im going NA Guys please advice read most of these threads http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/21383-what-is-an-suspension-upgrade-for-a-vitz-and-howwhere-to-get-it-done/ http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/21477-vitz-or-wagon-r-turbo/ http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/21509-buying-a-new-vitz/ http://autolanka.com/forums/topic/21088-vitz-safety-editions/
  8. The only thing that worries me is the iDCD Dual Clutch 😟 transmission !
  9. I am looking for the english owners manual of this car if anyone have it please share the link
  10. I could not find an original valve but replaced with a recondition, the problem has reduced 95% but when I start in the morning little bit of white smoke coming for 1-2 seconds (not that thick white smoke ) next oil change I am thinking about switching to a full synthetic 5w30
  11. I am going to start with the PCV valve, will replace it this weekend and pray the problem goes away 🤞 https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/394549/white+smoke+coming+out+if+exhaust+when+I+first+start+it+in+the+morning
