    Prius C vs Vitz

    Hello, Buying a new car with Govt. permit is a challenge this time. Would like opinions from you people whether to buy a Vitz or Prius C. Prius C starts at 3.6 B/New from Toyota. Vitz has a large range. Since my budget is below 4 million, I cannot go for anything larger. Prius C (or Aqua) has tight rear leg room, it seems. And ground clearance is also low. Hybrid resell value is also a challenge. Your views please....
  4. With a budget around Rs. 4.2 M which car out of the followings will be better i.e. Vitz 2018 or Fit GP5 2014 or Aqua 2014?? Especially in terms of, - standard of the car - fuel worthiness - maintenance costs (including hybrid battery cost)
  5. I recently purchase a Toyota Aqua 2013 model which has done 62000Km Couple of days later the 'Check hybrid system' and 'Check Engine' indicators were shown. After taking to Toyota Lanka, I got a system scan done and the error code was P0A80, which is for Replace Hybrid battery pack. They identified the issue to be a voltage drop in one of the battery cell. They recommended to do a battery service, but while removing the battery they found the battery has already been serviced as well. For the moment I have temporarily got the code deleted. This is temporary and the error will appear again (I got it twice). The recommended solution is to replace the battery pack. Agent price is extremely expensive, but few other places said it would cost around 200,000. I wanted to know if replacing the problematic cell would be a good option? has anyone done this? if so what are the good places which this can be done. I spent 4 Million for the car and don't have another 200K at the moment. Anyone got any solution?
  6. Hi I am currently thinking about buying a Mitsubishi Verada 2002 car. Is there anyone who knows about this vehicle? I want to know followings. It has a 3500cc engine a. How is the fuel consumption? b. any known issues with the engine? c. How is driving experience? d. Spareparts availability and cost. e. Any genuine advices are welcome Thank you dear experts

    Amazing fuel on Aqua (2013)

    It's my first hybrid vehicle, was thinking either to buy GP5 or Aqua. With help of this forum and by looking at physical condition of the cars finally decided to buy an Aqua. What i most like about Aqua is amazing fuel on 92 octane. Usual in heavy traffic it easily goes to 20 KM per L and in a night i had my best performance so far, it did 32 KM/L for 33 KMs from Warakapola to Gampaha. Shearing my experience...

Can anyone please list me out on what things I should Look before buying the car. Can anyone please help me with this?
  10. I'm planning to buy a toyota aqua. My budget is around 4 million rupees. I don't know anything about buying a used hybrid car. 1. What kind of model should i go? (There are 2012,13 g grade and some 2014 models available for this price in classified sites) 2. Is it worth buying a 4-5 years old hybrid car for 4mil.? (I heard there can be battery related issues) 3. Is there anything special to check when buying an used aqua? My main concerns when selecting aqua was the fuel economy, reliability & resale value.
  11. Submitted by Benjamin Yong on September 30th, 2016 Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Driver technology powers each one of the company's hybrid vehicles. We all know the Toyota Prius family of vehicles are fuel-efficient. Some may even know it’s because of the automaker’s Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) system that powers every hybrid model. But how does it work? Find out below. At the core of HSD is a twin motor-engine setup. A gasoline engine acts as the primary means of propulsion and an electric motor provides backup power and recovers surplus energy. The computer automatically switches between the two to deliver maximum fuel efficiency and a comfortable driving feel. Let’s dive a little deeper into the technology. When the vehicle is initially started up and all the way up to the mid-speed range, engine efficiency is at its poorest. As a result, the gasoline powerplant is shut off and the car runs solely off the high-output electric motor. During normal cruising, the main power switches over to the warmed up engine running at high efficiency, which directly drives the wheels. A generator is also engaged — via a built-in device that splits and diverts engine output — to produce electricity for the motor. In scenarios calling for rapid acceleration like passing on the highway, power is supplied simultaneously from both sources to boost performance. As soon as it’s time to slow down, the process happens in reverse. While the driver lets off the accelerator and/or gets on the brakes, the wheels turn the motor, now operating as a generator, converting rotational and braking energy into additional electricity used to charge a high capacity battery. This is known as regenerative braking. When the battery level dips down to a low level, the engine switches on the generator to begin the recharge cycle, ensuring the system maintains a healthy charge for optimum operation
  12. Hey guys, Long time lurker of the form. But this is my first post here, so if I'm posting this in the wrong section or something please let me know. Car Model - Toyota Aqua 2015 There is a ticking sound(like a rock rolling inside a metal can) coming from the front right side of my car. This only happens when going slowly(10-20kmph). The breaks and turning the car does not seem to have an effect on the sound. It goes away as soon as I accelerate beyond that. This issue just popped up yesterday. Checked the tire and couldn't find anything visibly stuck or rubbing against the metal. Any ideas what could be causing this? Also, any recommendations on where to take the car for further inspection? Around Dehiwala/Papiliyana. Thanks! -Nipuna.

  15. I have a Toyota Aqua NHP 10. It has inbuilt hard disk (Capacity Unknown) and i have copied some songs through CD's.I wanted to use a SD card to play music without copying it to the hard disk since i do not know how to delete tracks which are already copied to it. Is it safe to use an average SDHC card with an adapter to play music with the car setup? Will it make a problem to the existing settings of the setup and later locked? Appreciate if anyone can share the experience as i couldn't find a post relating to this. Many thanks!
  16. Hi all, I own a Toyota Aqua. And I do my regular services at C*rePo*nt. Last time when I took it there for the service that guy who changed oil requested me to do an engine bay wash saying that area is so dusty. Upto that point I only allowed them to use the high pressure air (Because from the place I bought the car asked me not to wash the engine bay as it might cause further damage). The reason that serviceman told me was that due that dust it might create an unnecessary heat in the invertor and may lead into early problematic situations. Also he stated that they use a special chemical instead of water. So I allowed them to do so. During the process I saw them using high pressure water. Since I was in a hurry to my workplace I was not able to ask them why they used water as well. So my questions are 1) Is it okay to do such an engine bay wash especially for a hybrid which is filled with complicated electronics? 2) Will the dust really remain as a causative factor for heat generation in the investor (like the dust layer acting as a heat insulator) ? 3) If it is necessary to do the wash how often should I do it (I know this question may sound stupid as it depends on the amount of dust collected. But I mean generally is it necessary to do it like I change oil in every 5000km's. I use solely this car for driving within the Colombo city) Thanks in advance!

    Abnormal Engine Noise In Aqua

    Hi, This is my first post on Autolanka. I own a Toyota aqua 2014, which i bought a month ago. By that time it had done 14000km. From the day since i bought the car i noticed that there is sort of a rattling sound which comes from engine compartment when the car shifts from EV mode to the engine powered mode in moderate acceleration. This scenario doesn't take place in hard acceleration. Btw apart from that sound there is no any other noticeable issue like warning light appearing or lacking engine power and so and so.Any idea on this issue? Your thoughrs are highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Do Aqua Really Need 95 Octane Gas ?

    Having a 1500 cc engine, do Aqua really need 95 Octane gas to be pumped (as many suggest). Any expert to clarify please. Thanks in advance.
  20. I have seen car sellers advertising that Five (05) Free Services will be given for the Toyota Aqua cars buying from them. Is it really true? I was told by someone that only the labour will be free and you will be charged for the oil etc. Can someone have experience enlighten please? Thanks in advance.

    Some Numbers To Munch On

    Did a bit of a quick draw analysis on cars prices advertised on a popular local classifieds, maybe it can be of some sort of numerical substance for the many of the arguments here It's work in progress, hopefully we can discover something interesting. https://medium.com/@crunch/galle-road-wars-part-1-c9b3e534a5a

    Toyota Aqua First Service

    Hi All, Now I have imported a Toyota Aqua 2012/10 S Grade reconditioned car, one week back. it has already run 6000kms. My question is, 1. Do I need to do the service before further running the car? 2. What kind of service do I need to do(full service(oil changes, changing filters etc.))? 3. if yes for 2, which engine oil do I need to replace(i might need to ask the service centre about this)? 4. Do I need to do the first service from toyota lanka or else any other recommended places? Thanks in advance.

  24. Hi Guys, can you suggest a place to do the carpeting for Aqua. Thanks SN
  25. Dear all, I'm in big need of so valuable and ever admired thoughts of the autolanka experts and fellow members on buying my next car. After much of "homework" I managed to narrow down the options to 2 cars namely; 1) Toyota Aqua GS Sports 2014 2) Honda Fit hybrid GP4 RS version 2013 But I'm bit inconclusive on the final selection of one of these and that's is exactly the stage in which the views of you will be of much impact and value. Possibly relevant factors that would be helpful in taking the decision would be as follows. a. I plan to get it directly from Japan and aqua GS will cost around 8-9 lax more than Fit RS, means more financial burden initially b. I usually don't drive much, will say 1000km per month and that may be of importance as the 2 cars have different fuel fugures. c. Though GP4 is older version, I prefer that to GP5 so GP5 is out ( Just my perception and has nothing to do with possible technological advances of GP5 ) d. I'm personally not attatched to other aqua versions like S and G as they look bit dull ( again just my perception and no offense to fellow aqua owners ), so only the GS version is considered e. Both cars vary significantly when it comes of options avialable ( Fit is powered with paddle-shift, 4 disk brakes, dedicated sports mode and of cause more space as highlighted in many AL threads while aqua GS having impressive body design as totally without the bored nature of its regular counterparts, not forgetting the better fuel consumption relative to Fit ) 7. The resale value and avilability and cost of spare parts may be of importance but let's say with a less gravity on final decision. With these facts and any other relevant aspects I really appreciate your views, advices and please let me know what you will do under same circumstances. As always a big thanks in advance and heartiest gratitude to all contributers and team autolanka. ( N.B. I went through virtually all relevant existing threads in autolanka, but could't find much information as most were on aqua and fit generally lacking details in GS and RS versions of them and due to the fact that I'm with a different scenario here. For the moment let's just neglect the possible impact of budget proposals, otherwise it would compllicate this )
