  1. Well well well, we closed one chapter and now we hopped onto the next! What you see below is the final purchase I made since no one had the decency to sell me a good X110 Mark 2 (My birdie is raised at y'all forever) so I decided (with a chuttak lot coercion from my parents) "Hey!, I need a car fast" so I thought what was really worth it and bought this car. So what is this car really? You're looking at a 2.4 Liter XV30 Camry in Black Onyx. Imported in 2004 by the MD of a "Strawberry Company in Sri Lanka" (You know what it is) and owned by him ever since I laid my grubby hands on it.
  2. I'm looking for a Toyota Ractis 2007/2008 model to buy soon. Also If someone can let me know where I can find the mechanical parts for this as well. Please let me know if anyone having a Toyota Ractis and looking to sell. Thank You
  3. I'm thinking about buying a car around 2.5 mil (Mainly for city driving) & I have 2 options in my mind right now. Viva Elite & Toyota AE110 (Crystal Light Model). I'm was considering Viva Elite because it's a compact car & ideal for city driving but 110 being a sedan is more spacious & looks & feels more like a car. I have no experience with Elite but I've driven a manual 110 & it's quite all right by me. Are the comforts & convivences same with both cars? Let me know your suggestions below. Thanks in advance.
  4. Hi guys, My car is a Carina GT YOM 2000 model (AT210). Few weeks back came acorss a very low millage same model GT in Japan and bought it mainly to source parts for my car in SL. Can someone please recommend a good and reliable place to do the replacing work? Initially im focusing on replacing engine, gearbox & suspesnion related parts. Heard some positive comments about Re*l*ca S*e*d but have a small doubt how their work on these toyotas as they are more speciallized towerd Subarus and evos. Prefer a place around Colombo.
  5. Hi Autolankans 😀, I'm happy to get to know about Toyota Harrier 300g YOM 2003 (180000Km). Hope some one can help me 1. What are the common issues of this vehicle? 2.

  8. Greetings all, I am interested in buying a vehicle (A used one) and it appears there is some issues in pricing of them due to the current situation in the country. Also I do not thing it would get reduced anytime sooner even the imports are allowed from the government in the future, as there is always the possibility to add more tax in order to balance the exchange flow. Therefore I am interested on knowing what the best available vehicles within the following price ranges (I am not a long distance driver, and would mostly be used for domestic usage, and some fortnight/monthly travel
  9. Hi guys, gonna buy a new car (bad times, I know). Did extensive research on this forum all my possible options (nissan / toyota/ mazda/ hybrid/ non-hybrid etc.) Starting a new topic cause Vios was properly discussed about 10 years ago. Belta and Yaris are too expensive for me. Hoping to stay below 3mn (and those are mostly 1000 and 1300cc). Nissan Tiida is a good option, but I heard (on this forum) it doesn't do well on fuel (8 - 9 in city). That goes for all nissans (bluebird, sunny) Mazda is good (axela / 3), but I want a simple vehicle (but comfortable for long and short
  10. Toyota Vitz 2016 2017 till 19 Well I’m not going to get too technical or sound like the fan club here But it’s a long story. Despite being a popular car, it’s a very bland machine, but has its perks Hence they are like the cockroaches of the current car scene. The car is so popular at the moment that I have seen 2 instances unregistered cars were exchanged for money for the market value and for lands, for debts etc. between businessmen as they considered the vitz to be equal to money in the bank. Well as for my Vitz tale, I purchased a car, y

  12. Alert : This is not the awe-inspiring blog where a 60-year-old rare car gets restored. This, non-existent ladies, and gentlemen unfortunately is much much more mundane. So bear with me. Everyone needs a beater car - you could come up with many reasons why... but deep down another set of wheels is such an alluring prospect. Time to time it feels so good to keep your daily with all its techie bits aside and just rattle down the lane in a simple box on wheels with just a speedometer. Three years ago me and my father bought a 1972 Datsun (B110) and since I was broke then and had no space
  13. Hi Guys, My Allion 260 has driven only 20k Km. Recently I noticed a kata kata noise when I turn the steering to right. This only comes when the car is idle / parked. Not sure whether it is related to power steering or racks ? Only comes when I turn right. Need your support.
