Well, look around you, there're so many of them around. If it were really bad on fuel, I doubt you would find a great many on our roads.

Again, if you want better fuel consumption buy an Axio. If you want sharper ride and looks - get the Axela.

With permisson of Rockers <_< & continuing on the same topic - is it better to import a 2008 (pre-facelift) Axela for around 3 - 3.1 Mill or buy 2nd hand in SL (2003-2005) for 2.6 -2.7 million?

Does the model year make such a difference in general performance, economy, maintenance (i.e. some issues that were rectified on later model years) for Axela?

(again talking about the pre-facelift years)

Finally, hv any of you seen Axela or Mazda 3 on the 2nd hand market for sub 2.5 M?

Cheers

So, a car that's three years younger is only 300 grand more? Seems like a no-brainer to me. :) And don't forget, that older Axela has spent a couple of years on our lovely roads.

Seriously.Are you gonna open a new thread for every car that comes your mind?Make up your mind already!.I have noticed the members reply to 20+ threads opened by you for various makes/models and I have this sneaky suspicion that they were wasting their time.AL,ofcourse, is for sharing knowledge and help,but one must learn to help themselves too...

:rolleyes:

Yeah sounds pretty dumb when you consider the price difference (based on quoted prices), that's why I asked if anyone's come across a sub 25M Axela - then at least there is a 0.5M difference!

However price is not the only factor for some - a 2nd hand car is yours for minimum hassle and 1 days work. Importing is a bit different.

Anyhow, a car that has kissed our lovely roads for 2-3 years is bound to suffer some ailments - point taken.

Guys,

I drive a manual 2005 model Axela and she does around guaranteed 11.5 km/litre in city and 14 to 14.5km/litre outstation

I don't speed much and always drive keeping rpm less than 2 or 2.5, your driving style also counts a lot in fuel consumption

But most of the people I know who own triptronics complain that it's max 9 to 9.5 they get and that I feel quite normal for an automatic

Cheers

I used to hate the Face Lifted version as well .. until I got to closely inspect and drive one at the Colombo Harbour! :ninja:

Man it was awesome - the interior is quite improved in the f/o model as well. :alc:
