  1. Greetings all I have a Honda Civic ES8 which comes with a remote to lock and unlock the doors. It does this but nothing else. It is not the one with the key programmed with a chip in it . I was thinking if it really makes a difference to go for an aftermarket Security/ Alarm system . Nowadays people actually don’t respond to an alarm when it goes off, do they. General thought is that it is a false alarm. Also I’ve heard stories about security system wiring messing up the electrics of the car and playing havoc. Need some opinions and advises. Thanks in advance.

  5. I have below issue with suzuki swift car and need to know it is common or any fault belongs to transmission Normaly this happen on hill climbing and when changing 3rd gear to 2nd gear. When going uphill with 3 rd gear, sometimes its not accelarate in middle or upper section of the hill and car gets slower. Specially this happened when I slow down the car ( eg: 10 - 15 kmph) due to traffic then I change the gear to 2nd and try to Accelerate, but it not happening and it getting slower and no picup ( regardless of how much I push the gas paddle ) So I should put it to First and Then accelare.

  7. What Year Limit Can Any Vehicle Be Imported Here ?
  8. Guys, I'm thinking of buying a new ride. Preferred Budget 2.5 - 3.0 (max), prefer around 2.7. Travels average 400 - 600 km per month Hardly travel on city traffic conditions. Mostly on urban, sub urban roads. Road condition mostly good. Sometime need to travel in poorly maintained roads, for trips etc. Previous car FB 15 1500cc. (Expecting more comfort) Prefer Auto gear.. Comfort - 8 / 10 (Less bumpy, need to have good shock absorbers, some times need to travel in bit rough roads and roads with pot holes) Less maintenance cost - 6/ 10 (Less maintenance frequency, wont mind high part cost) Acceleration - 8 / 10 (Prefer to maintain speeds around 80 - 110 when not in city limits, expects good acceleration) Fuel economy - 7 /10 (Good to Decent is enough ) Re sell value - 5 / 10 (No significant decrease in price) Read the forum and found the following 1. Toyota corolla 122 luxel 2001 - Seems to be good.. But 2001 for that price? 2. Honda Fir GE6 2008/09 - Seems to be good..heard its spacy compared to other hatchbacks (Don't like hatch backs much).. What about comfort compared to others? 3. Honda civic es5 2004 - Beautiful.. Fuel economy? (Is it CVT ? ) 4. Honda civc es1 2003 - CVT issues? 5. mazda axela 2003 - fuel economy? 6. Honda fit aria 2005 - don't know much about this. 7. Toyota 121 , 1.3 Manual 2005/6 9. Toyota 121 LX/ LX limited - 2002 10. Toyota 121 G - 2000 What do you think the best one to suit my needs? Expecting you expert opinion..
