  1. I am planning to buy Ford echosport 2017 titanium car. Please advice me if there are any technical issue s or performance issues with this vehicle. Thanks
  2. Hello fellow ALs, This is the first time I'm posting on the forum after using this as an unregistered visitor for quiet some times. I have this average looking question, which I came up with different answers each time I ran it through my mind. Therefore your expertise is strongly required & I seek your valuable advices. I have bit of knowledge on vehicles as my famly owns few from time to time and now its time to grab one for myself. My budget is ranging from LKR 2 million to 4 million. This is the tricky part. I have first hand experience on used car repairs and sometimes I feel like I should go either with brand new one from agents or unregistered reconditioned one (With validated pre-shipment inspection sheets). Then as I found out my available options are Kia Picanto (Unfortunately they still sell 2018 model), Perodua Axia and other 600CC-650CC kei cars. I cannot justify myself buying a kei car at current price tags. And rear of the Axia is a big NO for my desires which left me with Picanto. It is a good option since it is brand new and comes with agent warranty but being the 2018 model keeps me doubting myself. I really likes the new Suzuki Xbee but unfortunately it is out of my budget. And I don't like to sit behind the steering wheel of a Vitz either. Then I looked at used car market. Only thing keep me away from these are repairs. I love Mazdas and I always wanted to grab an Axela/3 or a Demio. Since manufacturing year is newer and since it is a beauty I looked at Demios and I could find 2008-2009 ones for about 2.6million (In average as a guide) These are normally clocked around 100,000 kms and I'm afraid of repairs which might occur in those if I buy these. Except that I really like the Demio (BTW I ready through all 8 pages of "The Demio thread") Ford fiesta was another car I really love (Not the indian version) and I was thinking about importing one with 1L eco boost engine (Assuming custom duty is around 2million) but unfortunately I couldn't find any stock which was matching with custom requirements (Not older than 3 years old & RHD). ( I know my researching skills are not great, therefore kindly point me at right direction if importing used RHD Ford Fiesta (1L) is still a viable option.) So above description sums it up upto some extent as how my mind works nowadays. Love the demio but afraid of serious repairs 😕, Loves Picanto but buying 2018 model in 2020 is unjustifiable 😔, Xbee is lovely but out of budget, FIesta 1L is superb but where to get one 😞 Dear fellow experienced members, I'm expecting your valuable opinion/comment regarding this matter 💐
  3. Hey guys, I am going to buy my first vehicle. I need some advise on choosing it. My budget is 2.5 - 3 million. These are the cars that I am interested in so far. Kia Cerato (something around 2010) Kia Rio (Not sure if I can find one, but interested in something around 2010) Ford Focus (around 2010) Mitsubishi Lancer GLX (I think I will have to settle for 2008, if I am going for this option) Could you please comment on the fuel consumption and the reliability. I am trying to find fuel economical car that doesn't cost a fortune to maintain. I am very attracted to Kia vehicles and Ford. However, I am not sure if they give a good mileage. Also no clue about their maintenance cost. I know these vehicles are hard to sell. However, that is not a big importance for me. Feel free to suggest new vehicles to my watch list. (I am trying to avoid Indian cars and old Japanese cars.) Please share your opinion. I really appreciate it. Thanks in advance !

  8. Roughly how much would be the cost for importing a mazda 3 hatchback or ford focus hatckback to Sri Lanka? made year 2016 upwards recondition would be fine. Also, how is the after market/service facilities for Ford cars in Sri Lanka? Thanks in advanced, Cheers
  9. I'm considering buying one of these two vehicles. the Audi is about 3000 GBP higher in price. Does anyone here have experience with these vehicles. Also, do you know anyone who is importing these? Can i import a vehicle by myself, or is that too difficult?
  10. Hi guys, I've read good things about the Ford Focus Hatchback in international Reviews. I wonder if it is good vehicle to buy here if you are looking for a small nimble car that looks nice.

    So I finally managed to get hands on a Ford Escort mk1 which I've been on the lookout for years. With a few mechanical and electrical works I've managed to get it running.

Planning on working on the following as well so any recommendations and suggestions are greatly appreciated engine upgrade to 2L wheel arches new paint - black or matte black (not yet decided if it should be matt or shiny) adjustable suspensions Interior fabrications
  12. Guys.. mine is Ford 2000 (BJ5), My ABS and Hand break indicators have been blinking lately. When I did a scan it indicated a fault in the Rear ABS sensor and my mechanic told me to replace the Rear ABS sensor and the ABS unit in the car. Since these are difficult to find for my model , would appreciate a second opinion. Have any one of you all experienced this and how did you sort it out.. Many thanks in advance

  14. When I was driving a 1993 Ford Laser in the on the high level road, one of the radiator horse started leaking inside and unnoticed. Heat didn't went up significantly since I was driving slow. Then I entered the highway and speed was increased. Just after 4km, it got overheated. We kept it to cool and put water later with the help of highway people. Then I drive another 10km and parked the vehicle. Following day when we start it, water comes out from the head gasket. I think it got damaged and it needed to be replaced. Some facing need to be done to the engine head also. So where can I get these gasket and what will be the replacement cost?
  15. Hi to all. I'm new to this forum. I have an idea to buy a Ford Mondeo 2003 or 2004 car. Is that a good car? Can anyone tell me more about that? My budget is below 15 lakhs. Or what are the other options which suit for my budget? Thanks.

  17. Dear Experts, I own a Ford laser 2000 model; (as far as I know most of the car is similar to Mazda BJ5). I have been getting problems when starting the car & when checked I was told that I had an issue with my computer box & I may have to replace it. However, I'm clue less as to what should I do. What I need to know is are there are reconditioned cheaper units for this, or will I have to replace it with a brand new computer box. If so where can I find one in Sri Lanka.Will I have to go to the Ford agent ( Car Mart) or is there any other place in Colombo, Panchikawatta etc. where I can get hold of one. Your valuable input is highly appreciated friends. Help me out.
