  1. Dear All, I have been reading lots of threads and almost all the things I have learned about cars because of your valuable and unbiased reviews.At the moment I'm ready to buy my very first car and have managed to fund maximum of 2.8 Mil. Please give me your kind advice to select a car from below mentioned cars which I have selected with my knowledge.If you can suggest me any car otherthan them, highly appreciate it. My main concerns are, i). Reliability ii). Fuel efficiency (I prefer go for a manual since I'm living in Badulla and less traffic ) iii).Im not think much about resale value since I don't have any idea about funding again for a apgrade in the future with my other plans (like construction of my own home etc..) Here are the models I have selected with my knowledge. 1.Mitsubishi Lancer CS3 manual 2011/2012 2.Toyota 121 Manual 1500CC 2003 3.Toyota Yaris 1300CC 2008 4.Toyota Vios 2005 5.Mazda Axela 2003 Think to go for a manual and looking for your kind advices I have no enough experience about cars and only expertised about motorcycles.

    Normal operating coolant temperature

    Hi all, My car is toyota vios 2007 and has 1.5 l 1NZ engine. Recently I was driving a long trip and suddenly heat bulb started to blink. So I stopped the car and checked. Coolant level is fine and the fan is working. So after a while when I start the car bulb is off. So I plugged a bluetooth obd reader and observed the coolant temperature while driving. It shows around 94c - 100c and blub never started to blink. Is this temperature is normal? What is the temp level that blinks the bulb? Can that problem is a senser problem? Can anyone help.

    Change from Petrol 92 to 95

    My car is vios 2007 and used 92 octane petrol since I bought it. Is there a big difference between 92 and 95 petrol? If I'm to change to 95 petrol what is the procedure. Should I empty the tank fully and refill with 95? or wait till the petrol warning comes and refill with 95 is enough?

    Toyota vios issues

    Hi all, My car is Vios 2007 and it has some issues as follows 1. Brake - I have to push the brake paddle more deeper to engage the brakes. Is this normal or can be fixed? Can this be a problem with brake pads? Left side brake pads are worn out more than right side. Is this a indication of a problem in the braking system? 2. Power steering - Turing the steering wheel is little harder compared with other cars. Oil level is not low. Can this be a problem in the belt? 3. Starting need more crank time - To start the engine I have to run the motor little longer compared to my previous car Honda city 2001. Is this a normal thing?
  10. I am going to buy my first car in few months. Currently, I am doing researches on following cars. Lancer CS1, CS2, CS3 - as forums in autolanka I have decided CS3 1.6 is better. Fit Aria - Not much information but most of the people are saying that this car has better fuel consumption. Honda Civic - Bit of off-budget for me. I am looking for a car for 20Mil. most of the es1 es8 cars cost more than 2Mil.( I am looking for cars after 2002.) N16 and N17 - Don't know much about this. But most of the people saying these cars have lesser fuel consumption. I need fuel consumption about 10Kmpl in Colombo. And No matter its auto or manual. I am not going to travel daily but 2 days a week from Kosgama to Kolpety (38Km). and probably twice a month I am traveling to Matara by southern expressway. So the car needs to be decent in comfort. and need to be reliable as a 14-15 years old car. I am new to automobiles. I have no experience on this subject. It would be very grateful if you help me to choose a better car as a first car. Thanks.

    My first car

    Hi friends. How about vios car? I want to know about fuel efficacy and maintained cost thanks
  14. My Vios cars catalytic converter is bugging me for several months now. Scanners says catalytic converter below efficiency. I talk with couple of mechanics and some say iI need to change the O2 sensor, and some says i need to replace the catalytic converter which happens to be the three quarter of the exhaust pipe. cost of the genuine part is nearly 1 Lahk. Does any one know what needs to be done, Can i clean it without replacing ? I can go for a second hand part which will cost me about 20K but no guarantee.

    Toyota Vios - Service Intervals

    Dear all, This may sound a bit stupid, but I guess this forum exists in clarifying even the ground level facts which we should clear out. My Toyota Vios car manual says, the service interval has to be once in every 10,000km, where the engine oil and the oil filter will have to be replaced too. However, the general belief among ourselves is that a service at every 5,000km is needed. Could anyone from the community clarify me this? Thanks in advance.
  19. Hi I have a problem with my Vios 2004 model car. As you notice, for VIOS, each break light is separated into 2 pieces and I have noticed that only the outer area lights while the inner area never lights up. I got to know from some, that this issue is caused by a relay. But, I have noticed this issue in several Vios cars and I'm not quite sure how to activate the inner section of the break light, though it might actually be something connected to the relay. Please give me an insight why this happens, if anybody knows this and it would be helpful if someone could actually educate me on how to light up both the sections of the break or atleast let me know the secrets behind this. Thank you. SANJEEWA

Engine trys to stop. I hope experts will help me to solve these issues....... Thanks in advance.....
