  1. Recently I met with an accident and I had to replace rear windscreen of my Honda Fit GP4. I handed over the car to Mag C#ty and asked them to handle insurance and everything coz of my busy schedule. They have replaced a duplicate Malaysian windscreen instead of my original Honda one without informing me. And also there was no transparency of the process at all . However, after replacing to a duplicate one vibration noise coming from the rear windscreen when I drive on broken roads. Mag C#ty guys are not accepting this and they are arguing that noise coming from somewhere else. But I pretty sure that's coming from the back door. Can this happen technically? Has anyone experienced this before?
  2. Hello Folks, Is there any law which preventing a vehicle owner from displaying a sticker in rear windscreen which blocks drivers view? Thank you all in advance!
  3. I have full cover insurance for my 2007 Vitz which is on NDB leasing right now. Last week I met with an accident where something hit my windshield as I'm driving and there is a small crack on the top which is hardly noticeable from the distance. But I promptly called the insurance and informed them. The agent came and checked the vehicle. Later I went to Toyota Ratmalana and got the estimations and submitted the same at JanaS**** office. Today I got a call from insurance company saying the estimation is amended and the same sent to Toyota office. Now I just don't get what should I do next. Everytime I call them, they give contradicting answers. After reading the threads here, I'm having a nightmare thinking whether I"m being so naive and in the process of being scammed by the company What should be the next step ideally? Should I bring the vehicle and pay the amount at garage or insurance company will pay the amount onbehalf. My head is exploding..! Please help.

    Carina At-170 - Help In A Few Repairs

    Hi guys, I bought a carina AT170 (carburettor model 1989 17-9xxx) recently. This is my first own car although ive been using my dads for a few years but deffa need some help with a few issues. Will list them down so that any volunteers could help. 1/ The car does around 8 kms per litre average in the city and outstation. I am not sure what to do with it. I showed it to a mechanic, he says I need to replace the carburettor. Further, the car has a small jerk when accerlerating as well. Any ideas on this? Does an AT170 do only about 8kms? Any real good mechanic to show this to who will not take me for a ride? I drive 50 kms daily 2/ Further, it has tinkering on the border of the front windscreen. There is no tinkering elsewhere, but the previous owner has done touchups on this without a proper repair coz he has wanted to abstain from removing the windscreen. I want to fix this for good. Any mechanics u guys recommend? 3/ The power steering rack has to be replaced. There are oil leaks on both sides, so need to get a replacement from delkanda. But again need a good reliable mechanic. there are plenty but i dont trust anyone of these blokes around. I bought the car for 7. I know it has the above issues, but the interior is pretty cool and it runns really well, and its deffa below market price. Please do suggest me any mechanics u know so that I can get the car done up to the mint condition. Really love the car for some car reason probably coz this is the first car i purchased with my cash

    Nikwax Tx Direct Spray

    Hi, Kindly post your comments if you have ever used a super hydrophobic spray such as Nikwax. Ex: http://www.kitwizard.com//nikwax-txdirect-spray-300ml-p-292.html They say that this kind of products can make the fabric to be water resistant and working as a water repellent with nano technology. However I could not find any of this item in Sri Lanka yet but if you know a place that can buy, please reply. Also if you have used it for your vehicle or any other, please share your experience. Thank you.
  7. Replaced the rear windshield of my HR-V at Stafford, Went for them by thinking that I will be able to replace it as before the damage. Had very minor scratches at tail gate also. They took around 5 days for the job and finally I went there to release my vehicle. I couldn't believe what I saw there. I was shocked and pissed off. All of us know that HR-V comes with tinted rear windshield, but they have replaced it with a normal windshield. I asked them what the hell you fixed to my car, haven't you seen any HR-V before.. Stafford people said, if you wanted a tint windshield, then why didn't you tell us so, This is crazy, There are no HR-V with a normal rear windshield, It came with all tinted glasses except front windshield , door shutters of driver and passenger. Stafford senior manager denied this by saying that there are HR-Vs with normal rear windshield. This is so damn crazy, I haven't seen any so far matched to what he told. Finally I said I don't want this, instead fix it with a tinted glass. But they said they imports only this windshield not the tinted one anymore, again said, there are some government regulations that prevents that kind of windshield import. Windshield cost me 45K at Stafford, before coming to them I checked the price with Samarasinghe Windscreen house, they had 2 windshields (tinted and normal) tinted costs around 37K and normal costs around 27K. But I went directly to Stafford by thinking that I can get the Genuine Honda, So there wont be any difference between my previous and new windshield ( which is going to be fixed). Windshield they fixed is genuine but not a tinted one. After seeing what Stafford has fixed to my car, I called Samarasinghe and Galle Motors, unfortunately they are out of stocks with tinted glass. So I left with no option and released my vehicle by paying 45K for the windshield. I have made this post to show how Stafford people behave and to how they deny everything and make stories to cover their dumb asses. So people be more cautious when dealing with nut cases at Stafford. Honda deserves a good local agent, but its not Stafford definitely.
