    Purchasing a new car.

    Hi. I am looking for an upgrade from my Mazda Carol 2004 and looking for a vehicle around 2.5M to 3M. With that budget, i am highly concerned about fuel consumption, maintaining cost. Hence, currently i have only below options. (Registered) 1. New japan alto - some people say the second hand market will be very low. 2. Daihatsu mira - lack of spareparts 3. Wagon r - expensive maintenance cost, lack of spareparts So guys i am looking for some ideas, suggestions for a better option. (Including positive and negative sides of above options and, any other models i can go for.) Thank you.
  5. Experts here, Looking for expert advice regarding rough idle and EGR, EVAP failures on my car Audi A4 B6 2004 1.6 engine. I have sporadic rough idle. When I scan, I found two issues. EGR System Regulation Divergence : P1403 - sporadic 008-Implausible pulse Potentiometer for EGR (G212): Signal too Low : P1443 - sporadic 007-Short to ground EVAP - failed When I talk with my service provider (not the Audi agent), they didn't worry about EGR issue and told it is exhaust gas related so to ignore it. They didn't say anything about EVAP (I also forgot to ask it later ). When I study about EGR and EVAP, I found that these two can contribute to rough idle too. I have sporadic rough idle and I have sporadic failures (both I don't like at all). So I feel these two could contribute to the sporadic rough idle my car faces. Interesting thing is that so far I didn't feel this rough idle when the A/C is ON. But my service provider seems they are not interested in fixing these two. My question is, do I need to worry about these issues and pressure them to fix? Because I feel the sporadic rough idle would be fixed by fixing these two? Thanks in advanced.
  6. Hi All, I have a Bluebird Sylphy 2004 Car. It has a Kenwood u-353 audio system. I don't get good reception on the tuner when I drive out of colombo. I think I need to install a new antenna. I can't see any antenna ports on my vehicle. Can you guys give me some help here? And also Do I need to remove the dashboard to remove the audio system to plug a new antenna. I can't see a way to remove the audio system. Thank you Lakmal

  25. Hi all! I'm continuing to do car research in advance of purchasing my first car, ideally costing under 3 million rupees. I plan to use it for at least 5 years after the purchase. Important question: what is better economically, getting a brand new one for around 3 mil (Picanto, Wagon R etc) or buying a second-hand one from early 2000s (Familia, Sunny, Civic etc) for around 2 mill? What concerns me is that given the old age and >100,000 km mileage of these used cars, am I likely to face heavy expenses in repairing and maintaining them within the course of 5-10 years, which might make the total cost of ownership equal to or greater than the price of a brand-new one? Thanks in advance for your advice
