  1. Damn. Damn. Wonder what made the mechanic decide against replacing it. I told him I am willing to pay for the part. If it was ignorance, I don't think I should visit that garage anymore.
  2. Hi Guys, Do any of you guys have experience with a good garage around Ja Ela, Wattala, Gamhapa, Negombo that has experience in Korean cars? On the forum I found most places towards, Moratuwa, Baththaramulla and Mt. Mine is a Kia Rio 2004. I need to fix the front left suspension, rear left brake drum, check the steering rack because vehicle steers left even after alignment and weigh balancing, and finally do a tune up (bought the car recently, owner hasn't done a tune up within the last two years). Any help would be appreciated!
  3. Thanks guys. I understood. I'm pretty sure mechanic had something to do with it. He was too defensive about it. I'll get that repaired as soon as possible.
  4. Hi guys, Recently I noticed that my Kia Rio 2004's rear left wheel drum has a crack and a part of it is missing. Are there any dangers driving like this? Garage guy said it's not a huge issue. But it's my first car and my knowledge is very little so I thought of asking you guys. Any advise is appreciated. I've attached few photos. Thanks!
  5. You guys are amazing. Those gave me quite a good start. If any noob going through the comments is wondering what those different trim levels are, there's a good explanation here. @AVANTE I'll definitely reach out to you when I am moving ahead with the plan. I just need to arrange my finances first. Quick question, I didn't get what exactly you meant by "Non-com 2000/semi mux". Even Google didn't help on that. Do you guys know about maintenance costs? How often do you think there'd repairs that cost more than 50,000 to fix.
  6. Hi guys, I know Peugeot 406s have been discussed over and over in this forum. But I want to get a fresh opinion. I'm looking for my first car and I'm interested in Peugeot 406. It fits my budget and kind of excited about it being European. If it matters, I'm still in researching phase and hope to buy in about two months. What is your opinion about buying a Peugeot 406 D9 manual with about 150000 - 170000 on the meter for 1.8 Mil in 2021? Is this car still road worthy and does anyone have an idea of how hard it is to find spares in Colombo? Any current owners with suggestions of a better car or advises? My max budget is 2 Mil. Thanks!
