Best Buy Between 1 - 1.2Mil

Recommended Posts

Damn ... I just saw an "almost new" 1992 toyota marino in an AL ad ...

I must be living in a time warp when we are prepared to dish out 1.5 mill for 20 year old cars!!

:blink::blink:

If I'm prepared to blow 1.2 mill, I might scratch up a little bit more and go for at least a Proton Gen 2, rather than old toyota's.

But that's just me - most of the SL is blinded by the apparent better fuel consumption of boring old Toyota's and nothing else!! LOL

(nothing boring about Marino -- except that it's only so much younger than the T-rex!)

Killer,

Have you ever driven a Presea? Wht drives you to say this statement?

Please don't bring forward what u have heard. Instead bring forward what u have experienced.

[This is a advice for all forum friends]

Presea is the best car ever manufactured from 1990-2000 from the list of vehicles thread started mentioned.(share same FB15 Engine/ Parts with extra configuration for performance)

Handling, performance, Stylish(frame-less window, full option, Stylish body)

Automatic tranny does bit bad on fuel.(8.5-9.5 city) (11-12.5 out)

Manual does (11-12.5 city) 14+ outstation

Value to Money car!

Yeap, I've driven the preasea alright,not once but quite a few times. But what I understand is that you people are referring to the R11, not the R10. I've no experiences with the R11, so sorry if I have offended the presea owners with that. My bad should have been specific with the model. But then the R10 is crap. :)

i think your better off with full option ae100 than basic ae110 because in full option you get

power windows,power mirrors,rear headrest seats,rpm meter etc....some people say ae100 better than ae110. so good luck with your car purchase

Domani has the D15B VTEC engine which was in the EG8 and EK3.Therefore sourcing engine parts wouldn't be difficult yet finding Body parts would be difficult

It would do about 11-12 kmpl in city

Thanks guys...

somewhat rare engine in sri lanka.

So may do really well on fuel(16+) , but also may give trouble in maintenance(rare engine and bode parts)...right

hence low market value...

* EE111 version of AE110 has 1300 CC Engine.

* FB14 Lusino is Two door versin of Nissan B14.

* AT192 is Carina old version. I like this model than newest carina [212] as 192 has

very good sporty body shape. [looks bit smiler to Nissan Presea]

Manual transmission one I know, does 12 km/L in city.

Thanks Uditha,

Any difference in EE111 when it comes to market value, fuel consumption etc...??

So which means AT 192 should do 14-15 in outstation....right.

*EE111 market value is less than 110. And probably comes with basis options.

[PS & AC Only as far as I know}

* 1.3L engine will result good economy but less power.

* For both cars, fuel economy will depend on the vehicle condition, driving habits, road conditions etc.

Thanks for the reply...

Why did u specificaly mention the butterfly model...

Accordig to the following site it does well on fuel(5.7l per 100km - that is 17.5kms per liter, of course this should be under standard conditions..i wonder someone can help with real condition figures)

http://www.cars-directory.net/specs/mazda/familia/1996_10/14872/

Are u referring to the K11...I have heard that it does really bad on fuel..(ny way not interested in hatchbacks brother..)
