  1. Hi All, Planning to buy my first car around 2 Million, my choices were the Nissan March AK12 2003 - 2007 or the Perodua Viva Elite 2010 - 2013. I went through the threads and found that most of them are more than 5 years old. So would you recommend buying a 15 year old Nissan March vs a 6 year old Viva Elite?

  3. Hi all, Two years before I purchased a Mazda BJ5P with the help of you all. It was for my family and I drove it most of the time. My honest opinion is that car is a reliable, cool and fun to drive. I did use it as my wedding car as well . After two years I sold it. Well, the reason is nor since both me and my brother is living in Colombo now car just sit at home until one of us get back. So I wanted to go for a bit smaller car which my sister could drive. My preferences were Suzuki Swift Jeep Model 2004, Chevrolet Curze 2004. BTW I did my homework guys. I read everything related to these vehicles in the forum. Last two days I went to see 8 car of above models. Looking at those cars I'm very disappointed. Most of them looks they were being raped by owners. Engines leaking oil all over the place, power windows not working or creaking, Cabin is dusty like hell etc. Honestly I can't believe how someone can use a car like that. The best car I would was a 3rd owner lady drive. That also have slight oil leaks and it is a basic car ( no ABS, P/S ). It also giving a bit of vibration when on D so I guess engine mounts are not good. Yesterday evening I looked into March AK 12 ( Yes, I read all forum threads ). Should be a very comfortable car with all features. So I'm going to raise the fuel consumption topic again. In most threads people start giving unrealistic figures and from there on thread discussion is off topic. My BJ5P realistically did ~9kmpl is Colombo, Outstations ~12kpml(Trip to Katharagama gave bit beyond 12 so ) and highway ~15kmpl( Driving ~80kmph). I have heard most 1.3 engines ( vitz, swift ) do ~12kmpl on city. So AK12 being more low and wide car would do less I think . I read 10 is also difficult to achieve in AK12. But outstation it should do at least ~13 and highway ~15. So please someone had a AK12 please give me a realistic figure please. Thank you

  5. Hello, I have Nissan March AK-12 (YOM 2007) and currently done 72k. Recently I have noticed when I start it (cold start) engine running with bit rough sound and after engine running few minutes that sound decreasing gradually. I suspect that due to the engine oil that it used and I have checked with the service agents. They used 20W-50 Castrol GTX oil which is not recommended for AK-12 as per the manual. Couple of days back I have taken my car to have the regular service and I asked them the issue I had and use a lower viscosity engine oil. This time they used 5W-30 Castrol GTX mineral oil for my engine. After service is done I travelled 500km ride and noticed the engine sound is bit increased than previous and when I accelerate it produce a sound coming from beat silencer. I visually checked under the bonnet and there were no any suspicious remark like oil leakage. I’m so worried about this and I’m clueless about this. Is this happened due to oil change or any other reason? Does it want to flush the engine before use different grade oil? Car engine model - CR12DE Recommended engine oil – 0W-20 Thanks, Buddika
  6. Hello, My car has an intelligent key. Recently when I try to turn the ignition switch it doesn’t allow to turn and key indicator lights in red. Then I place the key very near to ignition switch for few seconds, and then I can turn the ignition switch as usual way. After that the key indicator is blinking in green for 5-6 minutes and off. I have a doubt on believing the reason for this issue would be because of the draining key’s battery, but still I can turn on and off the door locks reasonable distance away from the car. Actually will this be a battery draining problem?
  7. Hello Friends, I’m experiencing a strange thing that my car (AK 12) giving a continuous ‘beep… beep…’ sound when I apply the brake. That ‘beep…’ alarm is buzzing until release the brake paddle. There is no dashboard indicators are appearing also. This is not happened always but most of the time it happened. I don't have any idea why that happens, please share me if you are having any thoughts on that. Thanks

  9. Guys, I had 165/70-R14 Goodyear tire (stock tires) in my AK12. I have recently replaced both front tires and replaced with 185/70-R14 MAXXIS tires. The shop owner asked me to have a wheel balancing after replacing tires. I drove in the expressway and felt that my car was consuming more fuel than previous times. Could anyone tell me the relationship between increasing of the tire size, wheel balancing and fuel consumption. Thanks.
  10. I’m seeking an owner manual/ service manual of Nissan March AK12 (2007 model). If anyone has, please share with me.
  11. Hey guys, thinking of upgrading my ride Got utterly fed up looking for used cars after the recent price hike, so I had to trim my budget a bit. My budget is around 2.5 Mln, maximun 2.7 Mln, did some research and found the 2007 Toyota Passo and the 2007 new Nissan March AK12 with the silver rim. The reason why I'm sticking to small cars is because my wife is also driving it and she can't handle a big sedan, i know too bad for me but what to do. I know the March is bad on fuel compared to the Passo, but its a bit cheaper. can u guys please enlighten me on what to buy from these two? or any other used small car which is fuel efficient and relatively not so old (2007 or above) that I might have missed. Any 2007 Passo or 2007 March AK 12 users please give me your experience on these two. Thanx a lot guys...
