Hello guys, I'm planing on buying my first car; a 2009 (December) Mazda Demio. I have some questions in my mind. If you have enough time; please be kind enough to answer them. I already searched many previous threads, but couldn't find the exact answers I'm looking for. They may seem like stupid questions; please don't get all mad at me; (I've seen that attitude in previous threads) I'm a total stranger to these vehicle related stuff! Your kind assistance is highly appreciated. 1) I'm having a hard time deciding on whether to buy a car from a local car sale (Got a good deal for 2.9 Mil from a reputed vehicle trading company) or directly import one under my name. What do you guys think? What will be the cheapest option? (I won't be needing any assistance from a finance company) And if your answer is to go for importing under my name; i.I read I can only import vehicles which are only two years old; what do they mean by two years old? Do they mean since the year of made (YOM) or the year of registration of the car? ii.What will be the duty (Some rough figure will be okay) I will have to bear? iii.I have contacts in both Japan and UK; (Not in for business, they are there for education). Will they be able to send me a car? Which will be the cheapest; UK or Japan? iv.Please suggest (PM me) any reputed/trustworthy vehicle importers you know. 2) If you had to choose between Mazda Demio and Toyota Vitz; what would you choose? and why? (Your personal opinion) 3) Please comment on second hand market of this car. 4) Please comment on fuel economy of this car. (Compared to vitz?) 5) Are there any known issues of this car? 6) Will I be able to find spare parts of this car easily? Who is the agent for Mazda cars in Sri Lanka? 7) Any general info you think I should know? Thank you very much!!!!!! (For at least reading the whole thing) Regards! Have a good day!
Hi members, yesterday when I was driving my Demio when drepressing suddenly brake pedal went all the way to the floor. Luckily I was near a garage & took the car for inspection right away..however after about 10min or so brake system came back to normal without having to do any repairs..I searched the forum/Net and found out that, 1- Could be a brake fluid leak- which was not the case & the mechanic did a through inspection 2- Error in the braking booster- highly unlikely according to mechanic’s advice 3- failure in braking master cylinder- which mechanic suggested that if the issue happens again he will do an inspection on the component.could be an internal issue he said. he advised me to drive the car normally for the moment and not to panic. I am skeptical and I need a second opinion on this and appreciate if you guys could shed some light. thank you.
