  1. Go for the Alto mate. But be wary of the rusting in the Indian model. Check thoroughly before buying.

  3. Congratz bro.. that is a nice car....
  4. No I don't think people pay exuberant prices on cars just because the cars are "Poss". It is the system that make people squeeze bucks out in millions in order to purchase even a 20 year old trap.
  5. Well, it's not blaming the technology but coming to terms with it. We don't live in the 90s to expect the tech and wisdom of the 90s. What I say is that the improvement of the technology does not necessarily make the car last a long time. Car manufacturers don't make cars to last more than 30-40 years anymore. But, our car market demands vehicles like those. We need to keep this in our minds and be well informed about stuffs like these. It might help us in the long run. Vehicles reliability lies in the simplicity of its build. Complicated vehicles are rarely reliable as there are s
  6. Well automatics does have problems. Just take a look at the CVT boxes. They are not as reliable as the manuals and they are expensive. There is a reason behind everything. Hybrids are just the same. They are not as reliable as there ICE counterparts specially in longevity.
  7. Scotty is right machan. Things get even worse for 1000cc 3 pot engines which are designed only to get better gas mileage and emission standards.
  8. The time has changed machan. Not too long ago engine manufacturers didn't know how to produce a compact engine with sufficient power to efficiency ratio. Therefore, they had to produce strong engines get larger number of horse power. But now technologies have improved and they know how to get large number of horses out of a relatively compact engine with great fuel efficiency. Though it is a catchy marketing slogan there are hidden gremlins associated with those engines. Longevity is one thing that must be sacrificed. As I said earlier Vehicle manufacturers do not care whether their produ
  9. Do not get this engine confused with regular naturally aspirated engines machan. There are strong stresses affecting a turbo charged engine. You will not find the longevity of a normal engine from a turbo assisted engine. It is a physical certain. Manufacturers' do not care either. They are planning the obsolescence now. They don't want people to use their vehicles more than 10 years. It hurts countries like us of course. But, what can we do? P.S - Engine is the main component of a vehicle's reliability. Other parts contributes also but without the engine, nothing would matter.
  10. I also have a doubt regarding the 1L turbo engine. Considering the stresses involved, it might not last 100,000 kms.
  11. Cheaply built and cheaply last.

    The thing is that they have already acquired the required lands on either side of the road. I don't see why they do not put an exit there. That would have been the saner and wiser thing to do rather than bottleneck the Kerawalapitiya road. They just need to put 4 in/exit ramps and toll booths.
  13. Well it is always wise to keep the motor in pristine condition. Generally it will cost about 10,000 LKR to do a proper EFI "tune up".
  14. From the list. I prefer the P11. However, machan that mileage is not accurate. It should clocked well over 175000.
