  1. Hi all. I own a KIA Sportage 2010. I ran a full inspection and found below major errors. Would you be able to mention a reliable garage/person who could repair those for a reasonable price. Company price is so high and not affordable. Thank you ! 1. Need to replace rear assist arm 2. Need to replace engine mount. 3. Engine oil leak. need to replace tappet cover and check for other leakages. 4. Routine service after 80,000kms
  2. Hi everyone, My dad owned a KIA sportage 2006, but he passed away recently and now the vehicle was passed down to me. the vehicle was always part of the family and dad took very good care of it. recently I saw drops of oil at the bottom of the engine bay and I took it to a nearby garage. the man said its seems there is a leak from the gasket covers. I replaced all the gasket cover lining (I hope I am using the correct term). and the O rings on the top cover of the engine cover and the plugs. (apologies for not knowing the exact terms of the parts). Unfortunately, the oil leak did not stop. I live in Kohuwala, and I am so badly searching for a GOOD GARAGE, MECHANIC, or someone trustworthy who could help with this. taking it to KIA company is way too expensive for me. :( Kindly help me solve this issue. I dont want to be a son to a dad who couldnt take care of his father's precious vehicle.
  3. Hi All, Is it OK to buy used 2017 model Picanto nowadays. I would like to have pros and cons regarding to this. It's nice to have your idea about Fuel consumption, Second hand market price, Options available in this model and Parts availability in Sri Lanka
  4. Guys Big favour.I am a bit confused between going for a picanto or wagon r. Wagon R 2017 Basic can be bought for 3 mil with one year warranty from a car seller (Ishara Traders)for the same 3 mil I can get a picanto with 5 years agent warranty. I know wagon r is got better mileage.How about the picanto compared to the Wagon R 2017 Basic ?.Is it okay to forego the mileage per litre as I am only going to be driving mostly around cmb occasionally go outstation. Also whats the difference between wagon r fx and fz models ? Is it reliable to buy from a place like Ishara traders as A*W will take few months to deliver the Wagon R. What are your opinions ? Also I am planning to register the vehicle under my name and get the insurance in my name and since I am not in the country will my son have trouble claiming if anything goes wrong or is there any way to appoint him as a nominee ?.. Please kindly guide this old man.
  5. 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 ๐Ÿ˜•, Loves Picanto but buying 2018 model in 2020 is unjustifiable ๐Ÿ˜”, Xbee is lovely but out of budget, FIesta 1L is superb but where to get one ๐Ÿ˜ž Dear fellow experienced members, I'm expecting your valuable opinion/comment regarding this matter ๐Ÿ’
  6. Hi Experts, whatโ€™s the best Korean SUV based on comfert, fuel consumption, maintenance, practicality, fun to drive 1. Kia Sportage 2011 2L Diesel 2. Kia Sportage 2011 2L Petrol 3. Kia Sorento 2012 Diesel 4. Hyundai Tucson 2011 Diesel 5. Rexton 2008 Diesel You can add if I missed anything related to above categories โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ
  7. Got the specs of Kia Stonic offerred by Kia Motors, so thought I would publish the details here for anyone interested. I would also like to know your opinion regarding how it compares to other popular small SUVs in Sri Lanka in the same price range such as MG ZS and Hyundai Venue.
  8. Hi guys, one of friends looking to buy registered KIA sorento 2010/11 or 12 model and seek my help to find out good vehicle. I go through some valuable threads in this forum regarding this vehicle and found both favorable & adverse comments. Ultimately i assume this is a reliable vehicle for normal drive. However found some different types of engine capacities such as 2000cc, 2300cc and 2400cc on both petrol & diesel. We were so confused on what to consider. On the other hand diesel varients got a huge price gap around 500k. Anyone please give some details what should we consider, fuel consumption and what version has the reasonable resale market as we are not experts in this.
  9. Given the popularity and roughly falling in the same price range it seems appropriate to have a comparison of the two. Do give your ideas.
  10. I have a KIA Sorento 2008 version and recently I had to crank quite hard to get it started(early in the morning). Yesterday it didn't start at all. when the mechanic checked, he told me that all four Glow Plugs are not working. Replace those four plugs and with working battery tried o start. But still not working. Dash lights are working. Any sort of a helping thought is appreciated. Thanks
  11. 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 !
  12. Planning to buy my first car and confused whether to go with Kia Picanto 2017 or Perodua Axia 2017. I test drove both vehicles and personally i like Picanto because of the build quality and interior finish but I heard that Axia's fuel consumption is much better than Picanto's. Planning to use this for traveling to work (Colombo - Battaramulla) and driving for Uber in weekends. Any fellow Picanto or Axia users? Thanks in Advance.
  13. Dear Friends, I am new to this forum and new to buying a car as well. So please help with your extensive knowledge about cars for my selection. budget: 2.5 - 2.6 million I will be getting a lease after paying 30% down payment. I have checked some car sales, AL ads and ###### ads. Having gone through these ads, I have a small understanding that toyota vitz 1.0L 2007/2008 and kia picanto 2016 full option fall in that range. 1. Can you please help me decide which is better? 2. Can you please recommend a good, fuel efficient kei car that I can buy for my budget? 3. Is Toyota Passo 2004 a good car to buy for 2.1 million rupees or is the price too much? Many Thanks and God Bless you!!! Kind Regards Kushi...
  14. Hi all, I am planning to buy a car with a budget around 2.8 mn. currently I am driving a 2008 Vitz, thought of selling it and go to a newer car (YOM after 2015) like picanto, axia or wagon r. For a fact I know Wagon R has the best mileage out of the three car. Mileage is my least concern. I am more concerned on safety, driving pleasure, cost of maintenance, resale value and nice exterior and interior. I was planning to buy a Wagon R, but after speaking to few mechanics I had to change my mind. All of them gave negative feedbacks. Issues in sensors, malfunctioning options etc. Is this true?? Out of three options what will you recommend. Thank you in advance.
  15. Hi, Just came to be an owner of a Kia Picanto 2016, a CAQ done around 16,000. I heard a rumor about a white smoke (burning of oil) around 60,000 in KIA. anybody faced with this problem in this community? does this apply to Picanto 2016 as well. Please explain.
  16. What is the actual market price of a diesal sorento 2012
  17. Hello guys! I need some advice for buying my first car. My maximum budget is restricted to around 3 million, so I have few options. What do you think is best - buy a brand new manual Kia Picanto (around 3 mil the last time I checked) or import something like a 2015/2016 Vitz from Japan? Or forget both and go the local second-hand route with possible risks involved? I won't be actually buying one until a year or so, but I'm doing some research in advance anyway. I have zero prior experience with cars. Thanks for your opinions and advice!
  18. Hi All, Just bought a Kia Picanto. So far so good. Except, the radio is driving me nuts. The problem goes- I set a radio station (using preset) and drive while listening to it. All of a sudden, the radio starts "tuning" for another frequency. And this does not stop. Nothing in the manual (the manual actually has an older version for the radio and instructions) in terms of how to fix this. Did some research online and sort of found that this is due to the AF (alternate frequency) function on display and turning it off would fix the problem. It was never turned on to begin with. Also, even if I tried to "turn it off" while the tuning was happening simultaneously, that led to nothing. Radio stations changing while I drive is so annoying and dampens the experience otherwise. If there is someone who has experienced this and would know a permanent solution I'd much appreciate it- after all, there has to be over hundreds of Picantos on the streets of Sri Lanka (I bought Package 3). Thanks,
  19. I currently have a somewhat basic Kia Sorento from 2014 which I am planning on replacing with a newer SUV (probably a crossover). Due to the lack of a sun roof, 4WD and an extra set of seats in the back, and 100k on the odometer, I assume the sale price would be in the range of 7 to 8 million. I am looking to replace it with a newer vehicle, and would appreciate your recommendations. I have checked out the Toyota CH R 2017 (worrying reviews) or a few years older HONDA CR-V. Or would it be better to stretch the budget further (up to another 1m) and consider something like the Audi Q2 or a newer CR-V.
  20. Hi, I'm looking for a brand new car to buy and I am quite interested in the new Picanto as it looks very nice and the fit and finish of the inside plastics is quite excellent compared to other cars in the price range and they have a 5 year warranty as well. I need to know how is the fuel economy within city and if the engine has enough power to wizz around traffic. Or is it better to go for the other alternatives in this price bracket like the Toyota Wigo, Suzuki Celerio or the Perodua Axia?
