  3. Hello experts, I'm regular reader in autolanka forum. I wanted to purchase a vehicle within a month of time. I travel - 15kms per day usually ( not in heavy traffic I'm working from home) - Weekly trip aroumd 50kms. - 1/2 times a month long trips aroumd 200-300kms. - For the long trips high ground cleareance is essential - Most of the time 2 to 3 people will travel - Right now I'm riding a motor cycle. - My budget is around 2 - 2.5million. - Looking for something fun to drive but do atleast 15kmpl in long trips. - I dont care weather its a wagon, hatchback, sedan, suv or a van if it is in my price range. Looking forward to see your valauble feedback. Thank you.
  4. Hello guys, I need your help in directing me to buy a good car for my need. This is going to be my first car. My budget is 2 - 2.5 million. I work in Nuwara Eliya, but my home town is Galle. At least once a month I will be traveling home and most of those journeys will be at late night to avoid traffic. Therefor I need a good reliable car which suits long distant traveling with enough comfort. Initially I was thinking about Pug 406 as they are below 2 million rupees and has enough comfort with average fuel efficiency in long distance travels. But its very difficult to find a well kept Pug these days as owners are not selling well maintained cars. Checked several cars, but was disappointed. Now Im tired of my hunt for 406 and considering to go for a Japanese car. So far I narrowed down my search to Mitsubishi Lancer CS3 (CS1 is 1300cc lacks power for my purpose) Honda Civic (Seventh Gen) Civic is bit expensive than contemporary lancers. I have noted down several cars from web ads and planning to go and check them next week. My queries are, (1) Will aforementioned cars satisfy my needs? If not suggest me better alternatives. (2) What should I be looking specifically when buying above cars (or any other one you mention)? I dont need an in depth review, just some overview thought is sufficient. I dont like hatchback cars and Indian/ Korean stuff Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you very much. Cheers!
  5. Hi all, I'm planning on buying my first car and need your advice on suitable and available options. Budget : 2 - 2.3 million Preferred models : hatchbacks but please suggest other suitable options Traveling : the daily commute will be close to 100 km with about 60 Km on the highway. With a monthly roundtrip of about 350 km. (Approx 2850 km a month) Good fuel economy is a cruicial. Really appreciate your suggestions.
  6. 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
  7. Hey mates, Im looking forward to buy a used car for around 15-18lks, & also Im not going for a Indian car since it’s not my favor. What I looked for is Honda Civic EG8 & I really love it; but some say, it’ll be problematic. does it worth, & what will be the future problems of this car & what will be other alternative car options for this price. Since this is my first car, Im really looking forward an answer from you. Thanx.
  8. Hi All, I am new to this forum and does not have very much idea on technical details. I am planning to buy my first vehicle and my budget is 3Mn. I'm planning to use it for daily travel in Colombo and outstations occasionally. (Probably 500 - 800 km per month) What I'm looking for is a vehicle that can be resold easily and quickly as I might sell this car probably in a year and also a car with a decent fuel efficiency. (This comes as the second priority) I have few models in my mind that would fit my budget, Suzuki Stingray (Japanese) Perodua Axia Newly introduced Toyota Wigo (Slightly out of range) Used Toyota Vitz KSP90 What would be the best option to go with? Is there any other model I should consider? Thanks in advance for your expert knowledge.

  10. Hello Everyone, I read auto Lanka forum every day. But still have trouble finding right vehicle for me.. Only vehicle I owned is VW beetle. It was lot of fun but wasn't reliable. Here are my requirements. 01. Weekend traveling vehicle 02. Suitable for rough road. (little bit of offroading) 03. Most of the time just two people. The biggest problem is my budget is only around 1million. I prefer single cabs, But other suggestions are also welcome. Only single cabs I found is tata xenon, Mahindra or jmc. Or 1980 Japan cabs. I travel around 200km some weekends on my bike. So vehicle will replace it. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thank You..!
  11. First posts in AL guys! I'm searching a car for my own. 1st car though. I have a budget of 2.2M and I'm kind of sticky when it comes to talk about honda es series. (es1, es8) What do you recommend between these models? These are the points I consider before buying Fuel consumption (10-11kmpl will be enough, I don't expect something like 14kmpl or 16kmpl - LOL ) Comfort Performance Do you think es series is the best I can go for? If not, what else do I need to take a look at? Please be kind enough to add your comment below. Thank you for your concern guys!
  12. Cheers to Everyone! I'm a newbie to the maximum.. I started following this forum very recently and I have found it extremely usefull to me just as for you guys. So thumbs up to everyone who is sharing there experiences and knowledge.. Guys! I'm looking to buy a car for our family as soon as possible. These are the things I'm really considering at this moment. 1.) Our budget is around 1.5M (Max of 1.7M) 2.) As we are getting a part of it by a loan from dad's office the vehicle need to be registered within the past 12 years. 3.) This won't be a daily runner but, having a fuel economy of 11/12kmpl on citys is somewhat expected. (This might not be practical for this situation) Maybe used about 100km per week, this is just a rough idea, not so sure. 4.) Manuals are prefered, would go for an auto unless we don't have any good condition manuals in the market. (As we are hoping to buy one within atleast 2-3weeks) So right now these are the vehicles I have been looking for, Mazda Demios, Fiat Puntos and some Peugeots. I have no idea of buying Indian stuff and dad doesn't like perodua kelisas, marchs, swifts etc.. Test drove a Peugeot 307, a 2002 one registered in 2007. Used in UK, 150k on clock upto date. It felt so great with almost every aspect, but then again I'm a total newbie when it comes to inspection. I guess I was too excited since it was the first time, I even forgot to check wheher it had power mirrors :yahoo:It's 1.5M, 10kmpl on citys as he said. Petrol, 1.3 if my memory is right no alloy wheels, body condition was good. Is it worth for a 1.475M? And guys I'm sorry about the length of this post.. Just two more clarifications, In the 307 the signal light lever on the left and the wiper lever on the right. is it same for all european vehicles in SL? And how much would be necessary to maintain a usual car for an year apart from the insurance? Thanx in advance!!
  13. Hi all, Im looking for my first ( also our family) car, and looking some car around 1.8 m, My mom doesnt like Maruti. As we are in hill-country, im looking for car that can easily drive through that tough roads. So I think hatchback is better rather than Sedan for avoid collisions with wavy road. Pls dear expert give the suggestion to select car. thank you regards Amila
