  1. Appreciate your expert advice on Audi A4 2011 2.0 TDI and 1.8T models. Whether these engines and transmissions are reliable? What would be the maintenance cost?
  2. Hi, can anyone tell me what will be the import tax for a Volkswagen transporter 1.9 TDI (1900 cc diesel from uk)? And how to calculate it?
  3. Dear members, Given the recent changes in the budget, I have narrowed my search down to the below vehicles and would like your input as well. My main concerns are comfort, decent ground clearance and maintenance cost. The Toyota Rav4 was also considered, but I would have to buy a 7+ year used vehicle which I am not keen on doing. My top picks 1. Audi Q2 1.0 Litre Turbo 2. Nissan Note E-Power 1.2 Litre 3. Honda Civic Hatchback 1.0 Litre turbo 4. Audi A3 1.0 Litre Turbo 5. Volkswagen Golf 1.2 TSI (Update: 28-11-2017) My low picks 1. Toyota CH-R 1.2 Litre Turbo 2. Suzuki Ignis 1.2 Litre Hybrid 3. Suzuki Baleno 1.0 Litre Turbo Thank you all

    Import Volkswagen Golf GTI

    Hi experts, Please advice me how can I import a Volkswagen Golf GTI to Sri Lanka. Recondition made year 2014 or later should be ok. Let me know is there any agency or importer which i can contact. Also, if you guys hv any idea about a rough price for that car pls let me know too. Thanks
  5. In my previous thread I showed videos of my VW Bora engine giving a grinding sound above 2000rpm..apperently it's coming from the A/C (no sound when AC is turned off) , Guys at Vishwa motors told me sound is coming from the condenser..Sometimes it becomes way too noisy (when the outside temperature is very hot , like around 2pm with lots of sunlight) , and it slows the vehicle down (like engine is slowed down suddenly) once every 10 seconds or so.. Since this is a German car , can normal AC repair shops do this? or do I have to take it to Vishwa Motors or Senok? How much will it cost? an approximate figure will do...thank you in advance..
  6. I have a 2002 VW Bora 1.6 and I recently noticed a strange grinding sound when the engine exceeds 2000rpm.. This issue is not always there though..it comes and goes..This sound comes when the gear is neutral as well as when the car is moving.. I have recorded the sound..Can be viewed by following the link below.. I also noticed this ticking sound when the engine is on...Not sure if it's normal or not.. your expert advice is highly appreciated..
  7. Does anybody know and can recommend a good mechanic who can troubleshoot an old VW? Thanks in advance!
  8. I'm planning to buy a Volkswagen PASSAT TDI 2004. I'm wondering whether it will be a good choice. Details are as follows. Fuel type: Diesel Engine capacity: 1,896 cc Mileage: 65,000 km Condition: Average 1st owner & maintained at Senok. That's what he said. Fully loaded with sunroof I did a small research and found these information. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Fuel consumption: 6-7 KM/L, 10-11 outside Reliability & Performance: Better than Japanese cars Maintainability: Very expensive & parts are available but not like Toyotas. Since I don't have much experience with VWs I thought of asking the experts. What's the reasonable price tag for this car? What are the common issues with this car? Any helpful information? Expensiveness of parts compared to Mitsubishi Lancers?(I had one) I have gone through the following links. http://forum.autolanka.com/topic/983-vw-passat-18t-2002yom/?hl=passat#entry128600 http://forum.autolanka.com/topic/14975-vw-passat/?hl=passat http://forum.autolanka.com/topic/8129-volkswagen-passat/?hl=passat http://forum.autolanka.com/topic/8062-vw-passat-18t/?hl=passat
