  1. This may be the 6th registered owner. Actual number of owners may be even higher. Better not to buy it.
  2. That is marvellous. Being in another profession, but gaining such a deep knowledge on cars. If you are not an automobile engineer, your hobby must be in auto field. Infact, when I was new to this forum, I guessed you are Mr.L#l Al#wat#a or somebody like him. But later I understood that you are not him. Anyway, we are lucky to get advices from people like you. @Auto Lanka team, I'm sorry for talking little bit on a different subject.
  3. Dear iRage Thank you very much for your explanation. I have read many of your replies written to Auto Lanka forum. All of them are very clearly expressed. In addition to the knowledge gained by your replies, what I have understood is, you are one of the most senior automobile engineers in the island (although I don't know your actual name). Another big thanks to Auto Lanka team for providing this forum and all the resource persons who share there knowledge by replying our questions.
  4. Dear iRage We know that rear suspension of Camry is double wishbone and that of premio is cheapest and simplest torsion beam. So, how can premio be so much comfortable?
  5. Dear Experts We know that "rear drum brakes" has to be adjusted time to time where as "front disc brakes" are not required. What about "rear disc brakes" (in case, vehicles with all four disc brakes)?

    Octane Booster

    Hi Friends Now, in SL, there are so many turbo charged Euro cars, which essentially need Octane 95. I have heard that, if Octane 95 was not available on the way, we could use 92, together with an "Octane Booster". (Not to be used always, But only for the occasions that we couldn't find 95). Is this True? If so, what are the recommended octane boosters which are available in SL market?
  7. Recently my 3008 met with a small touch. Handed over to Car Mart Ratmalana workshop. They did the job within one week including getting approval from insurance company. I'm satisfied with their service. Staff is friendly.
  8. Dear Mr.Hyaenidae Thanks for reminding me and inviting me to write the story of my ride. Yes, I'll do it. But I'm a slow writer. Therefore please give me few days.
  9. Dear friends. Thank you very much for your valuable comments and advices.
  10. Of course, I have a steep inclination to climb just after I left home. That is the main reason I started this practice. Any way, waiting one minute is not a problem for me provided running engine at idle speed is safe instead of increasing the temperature bit faster by driving slowly.
  11. Dear Friends I have a Peugeot 3008 (from Car Mart). Normally when we cold start a car its engine RPM will be little bit high (around 1,100RPM) for about one minute. My practice is, I keep the car idle until it becomes normal idle speed(750~800RPM), without driving. Is this practice good or bad or useless? Thanks in advance.
  12. Dear friends If we don't consider the fuel efficiency, can we drive Wagon R or Alto as a normal petrol car if Hybrid battery has expired?
  13. Thanks for your reply. What about Alto K10 Auto?
  14. Dear Friends I'm planning to buy a small auto gear car (to be used as an additional car) for 2~2.6Mn range. Japanese alto seems to exceed this price and those are not worth for current market price. What are your ideas about Alto K10 Celerio A-Star Perodua Elite Are there any known faults in those cars?
  15. No, they are made in France. You can check using VIN (chassis number). The first three digits of the VIN indicate manufacturer and country of manufacturing. The VINs of 3008s imported by Car Mart starts with "VF3", which indicates 1. Manufacturer is Peugeot 2. Country of manufacturing is France. I have seen that VINs of 3008s found in Japanese auctions are also starts with VF3, that means they are also France. However Japanese version are not imported to SL since there are no 1.2 turbos. In Sri Lanka, all the gray imports of 3008s are from UK. I haven't seen VINs of them.
