  1. "Issue is not the car but the truck to which it ran in to I assume" You are exactly there. I was also bit confused on why police arrested the lorry driver for this accident. You mean if the lorry didn't have the rear crash bar damaged would have been much less despite the speed of collision ? I think SL should amend the safety standards in vehicles for incorporating external airbags as well. ?? But you missed one point, this truck also manufactured in one of the well developed countries..

      Is it a issue with lens or other else.......

  3. Well, take it to the agents. First you can tell your problem and get a quotation. If you are not happy you can return home without paying anything. I am sure they don't charge unrealistic price from you. Other than that, there are couple of technicians, who used to work in toyota before and now operating their own garages. If you are not qualified to diagnose an engine fault, highly advised not to attempt those things by yourself.
  4. can you share a photo of the damaged headlight. ?
  5. I suppose turbo versions are better in acceleration. not sure wagonR comes with that option. But spacia has it.
  6. Go for a Premio, its safer than any other models, ?

      If you can elaborate more on how many pax you are going to load per time. Weight/size or numbers of baggage hauling. Any concern on ground clearance ? 

      First you need to decide type of the car, sedan? hatch? wagon? MPV? SUV? etc.  All the above mentioned models are trouble free vehicles. But comes in different cabin sizes, options.  Since I am not into the tourism industry I cant exactly comment on what is the best suited model. 

      Most people tend to go wagons, like Prius alpha (CX), Honda fit shuttle, Axio fielder. those models offer comfort of a car plus enough boot space for carrying extra luggage.  Out of these three prius alpha is more spacious and better ground clearance over other two. offers good fuel economy too. But it is out of your budget. 

      According to your budget you can fix a wagon model of toyota 121 or nissan.

      thank you so much


  8. I agree with you if this was Japan. This vehicle may have high road safety rating. But referring to past accidents in SL, proved it wasn't the case. Lot of people died from wagonr accidents. Its not a matter of how careful you are, but to protect you and others with you from high speeding morons and boozed ups. Anyway its well refined in terms of its fuel economy, but compromising the comfortability, specially the rear seat in long distance travelling.
  9. Welcome to the Autolanka forum, If you have a worn out clutch it is recommended to replace, entire clutch set including the clutch razor. check for any oil leaks from oil seal in the fly wheel as well. All details including part numbers are here http://oriparts.com/7/156/3074/795560?#item_15239235 Sometimes clutch and pressure plate comes as a one kit. For a razor you can get a Japanese one. There are several places you can get genuine parts. Agents or at several dealers in Panchikawatta. Can't mention names of any shops here (its against the policies of this forum).
  10. why taking Why you are taking so much of risk on something that you aren't confident ? You will be able to find a good GP1, but you may not able to fix your mind. ?
  11. Seems there are not many korean car fans here. But this has been discussed in the forum before and you can search it. Both brands are doing well in SL conditions though it is not as up to the Jap models. Both Hyundai Santa fe and Tucson are popular models in SL. I know people have been using them for years without any trouble. Even one of my relatives using a Tucson, for last 5 years he haven't had any issue. Very robust and reliable engine. Comfortable ride and no issues with the suspensions (may be he hasn't met lot of pot holes in road). Now it has done nearly 85k. But its interior, finishing , features are not nitty and gritty as up to Jap. Specially seats get wrinkles, upholstery get discolored earlier than Jap models. Also the resistance to corrosion is not as up to as Jap. May be korean cars are made by metals with less Chromium (not that your car get severe corrosion after 5 years ). However these things much developed in very latest models. it may be more closer to Jap makes.
  12. In terms of safety and fuel economy, Celerio is much better.
  13. You mean the user manual ? You are supposed to get a printed version of the user manual with the car. Here it is https://we.tl/t-AiYiRVtVCi
