  2. Hi Friends and Greetings for Holiday season. I am stepping down after 5+ years from my reliable Suzuki Swift 2003 (Jeep model) sold due to migrating plan. But plan is delayed. I don't want to spend a lot on a car due to current crisis. Required is basic relative comfort travel 15-20 km. Mostly reliable so you can go somewhere with confident even in night. Also no need of profit but need to be able to get rid of car at short notice+ easy maintenance. Budget prefer about 1.5M max go up to 2M but I want to go as cheap as possible. Also I really like to have auto gears manual if no choice at all. I have done some research and even check few cars here's my list please help with pro and con so make me not make a mistake. Nissan : For my budget Very good condition Trad Sunny is there. But 90% manual so not a fan. Very few auto ones - are they reliable? Then Doctor Sunny diesel is lot cheaper than petrol. Petrol I think overpriced. Why is diesel cheaper? Cars look good condition but people say Diesel Sunny is a lot of problems why? But still not auto but my budget gets me good condition cars. Few Auto gear cars are there as well. Wingroad Auto is there but 2 cars I checked are terrible state so I think most are like that. Good ones above 2 M Toyota: Everything is above 2 Million except for Wagons (18/19 dash) But Manual. And corolla and Corona (17/18 dash) both available Auto and same engine 5A according to a seller. Diesel Auto also available Reliable? Parts? Mitsubishi Honda very few for sale at the budget - Honda Grand Civic is there but a friend tells it's likely to have lot of issues and no one knows to fix it. Suzuki few random Cultus etc but worried about spares. Finally there's a LOT of Hyundai for this budget Sonata Elantra and Accent. Much newer and Auto+ Seems a good deal but what's the catch? A mechanic tells their difficult to fix. What do you think and suggestion friends? Should I conserve budget an go for a classic like Sunny Trad/Doctor and live in pain of manual drive in city? Are Hyundai risky? Or should I just stretch my budget to above 2 M and get a March K11 or a FB14??
  3. Im creating this topic since the last topic about this discussion was back in 2010. What are the best places to get a car detailing done in Kandy. A full interior cleaning with seats removed using good quality products. Prices should be reasonable
  4. Hello! Hope you’re all keeping safe! Yesterday I was driving my moms HT32 XTrail which has 81k kms on it and while driving downhill at the Pita Kotte junction, I felt the usual EV-Petrol shift jerk, a bit intensified and the vehicle started vibrating a bit. Like the engine was sputtering, sort of. And so my obvious reaction was to stop the vehicle. It was then that I realised that the Engine had shut off. I tried restarting the engine and it did, but when I shifted the gear to try and drive it to the side of the road, the engine turned off again. By then the Engine Check light, ESP, Brake Warning and Master Caution lights were illuminating on the dash. I somehow managed to push the car to a side and park it by the side of the road but unfortunately was not able to find any mechanics to diagnose the issue. So I had to tow it back home. Can anyone here please give me any credible information regarding this? I’m quite sure it’s the infamous gearbox issue that played up, and I’m sure it has something fishy to do with the apparent “gearbox replacement” that was done in June of 2020 by Sterling Aftercare. Can anyone give me any advice as to how I should proceed from here on please? Thank you! Hope you all have a much pleasant Sunday than I am having!
  5. Hello everyone, I would like to get an expert's view on the following issue. The car is a Nissan Sunny E-B13(1993) Up to the point, the A/C was working properly but now it has got a problem. When I checked it, I could see that the compressor clutch is not engaged when the A/C is switched on and my guess is that it might be an issue in the electrical circuit of the system. How could I find the problem exactly, and if it's an electrical issue, what are the things that have to be checked(Relays/Fuses-according to this car model)? Any of your assistance is highly appreciated. Regards.!
  6. Hello Friends, I’m experiencing a strange thing that my car (AK 12) giving a continuous ‘beep… beep…’ sound when I apply the brake. That ‘beep…’ alarm is buzzing until release the brake paddle. There is no dashboard indicators are appearing also. This is not happened always but most of the time it happened. I don't have any idea why that happens, please share me if you are having any thoughts on that. Thanks
  7. First of all sorry for being the least active member on the forum🙃. Now since I used my beloved teana for 4 months I'd like to share my experience + what i did with the car. 1. So when I bought the car it had some minor oil leaks so I redid all the oil seals in the car as a precautionary repair using original Nissan parts which I got from A*W (slightly rip-off price but hey atleast it's "original"). 2. Redid my brake system with refaced calipers and original pads because of a minor braking sound which was noticable at traffic situations. 3. Installed KYB "New SR special" shocks and shock mounts. The new SR special is the only shock nissan recommends for the teana (finding this was a pain in the ass because almost all shops in Sri Lanka has KYB Excel Gs and nothing else) 4.Replaced 3/5 engine mounts using the original nissan parts from A*W. (Didn't knew japanese mounts costs that much😑) 5. Did a engine tune-up + throttle body cleaning since I felt like it's doing a bit less on fuel consumption. 6. Redid all the leather parts in the car back to the factory beige material The shocks were a game changer to the ride quality and now it's actually comfy. After 4 months of usage the car feels nice and smooth, a car which you'll enjoy to be a passenger in but not so much to drive because it's a barge. (Can't do risky moves while driving). Other than that the car drives superb and people think I'm a government V*P since most these cars are used by government secretaries and such. Fuel economy is 7.5-8 kmpl on city and 10-11 on highways. I'm actually impressed by the VQ25s smoothness because I've never driven a V6 before. Still i have much more to do in this car to bring back back to it's factory glory and here's a few I'm planning of doing within the next months, so if anyone can help me in the process I'm much appreciated. 1. Need to find original 16 inch alloy wheels that came for the car since the 18 inch alloys (aftermarket) that looks great reduces the comfort by a significant margin. Current alloy wheel The original 16 inch alloy that came with the car. So if anyone can hook me up with these types of alloys it's much appreciated. 2. There's a slight noise coming from the AC compressor when the compressor clutch is applied so should investigate that before it blows up. 3.Rear passenger armrest wood trim piece is cracked so should replace or find someone to fix that up. 4. Need to do a full interior detailing but can't find a good place that'll do justice for the velvet seats. (Please let me know if y'all know any place). So that's chapter 2 of my nissan teana journey. I'll try to post more on the forum definitely. Special thanks to @MaleCortana for recommending me the mechanic that did everything in the car. p.s i installed an android infotainment system which is me going out of my way to bring the car back to factory glory, but i had to do that since it's a nightmare reversing this GIGACAR out of my driveway. The unit has all the OEM functions (A/C control, CD changer + modern functions like android auto and spotify.

  10. Hi all, I'm looking for a sedan in 2.0-3.0 Mil range. I think Nissan Bluebird Sylphy 2003,2004 (FG10) 1500cc is a decent car for that price range. I was looking for a Corolla 121 but now they are over priced. So I don't think it's worth the money. Anyhow, I am interested on knowing what the best available vehicles within my budget. So any suggestions? Are there any common issues / repairs in FG10 1500cc variant? Is it a reliable car? How's the acceleration of the 1.5 engine? (I'm asking about the power to weight ratio) How's the fuel consumption? Thanks in advance.
  11. So guys I got a 2008 Nissan Teana J32 and I've been suffering from the inability to reverse properly without a reversing camara. The car has some aftermarket reverse sensors that doesn't work properly and because of the sheer size of the Teana it's very hard to reverse properly. So I'm thinking of a entertainment system upgrade and I'm looking for any suggestions that will help my cause. This is the stock entertainment system and I don't want any flashy RGB android 10 system to disrupt this simplistic atmosphere. All I want from this upgrade is good rear visibility and some bluetooth audio for calling purposes. Any suggestion is highly appreciated
  12. Hey guys so this is my first post in the forum and I'm thinking of logging everything I'm doing for the car in this thread. So this is my first car, it's a 2008 Nissan Teana j32 with a VQ25DE engine. The car has 111k km on the clock and still runs smoothly. The previous owner had everything documented (services,part invoices) so I'm a bit lucky there. I'm about to do my first service and I'm thinking of doing a full fluid flush including the CVT oil as well. So my aim is to make this car as luxurious as possible that includes suspension change and anything that makes the ride comfort pristine. Throw me any questions or tips regarding my mission and I hope to update everything happens to the car regularly. Cheers✌️
  13. what can i say? i just had to. the moment i saw this car, i was transported to the botanical gardens in hindi movies where i was hiding behind one tree and the datto was hiding behind the other and we were running into each others arms in a field of flowers, with kuch kuch hota hai playing int he background. apart frmo Givantha's i highly doubt there another 510 out there as pristine as this. everything is in there, in working order, AND looking like it rolled out of the factory yesterday. completely amazed at its condition, for a 45 year old car... for now, i'm just gonna run it. can't have a another project in hand. this is to be a daily driver, mind you. and i will bring it up to scratch soon. once the teg is out,
  14. Hi all, I just purchased a Nissan Bluebird SU14 Eprise. It's diesel vehicle which has done 144000 on the ODO. The issue i'm having is that while driving when I shift to the third gear and leave the clutch, the car bounces while moving forward. So I quickly press the clutch and the car runs smoothly for the momentum. The problem occurs when I go to the third or fourth gears only where when I slow down and change to the second, it runs perfectly. I did the clutch test where you put the gear in the third while on standby and you leave the clutch while accelerating and as it is supposed to, the vehicle stopped instead of trying to move. Has anybody had this issue?? Do you guys know what causes this or what this issue is?? Thanks guys
