  1. Dear Friends I need to buy two tyres for 2017 Japanese Alto. Out of Nexen (Korean) & Nankang (Taiwan) tyres, what would be better? Thanks in Advance.
  2. Dear Friends Recently, I bought a Japanese alto 2017 December (HA36S chassis). It is registered in SL in 2019. 1) Odometer is 32,000. But may be tampered. However, all four tyres are same Dunlop Japanese 2017 year ones. Seems around 50%~60% percent worn. 2) Later, I noticed that RMV sticker had been removed and attached to the file after laminating. So, I guessed that windscreen is replaced, may be due to an accidents. However, I serviced it at a garage and the mechanic told me that there are no signs of a big accident. But both number plates are slightly damaged and there were painting touches in several places including front and rear bumpers. 3) The fan belt seems slightly slipping. 4) Idle Stop indicator in blinking and not working. (It was intermittently working, when I purchased it). Does it due to weakness of the 12V battery? So, what are the maintenance works that you suggest, since I don’t know the history exactly? I have already replaced Engine Oil, Oil Filter, Transmission Oil and Brake Oil. i) A/C Service? ii) Engine Tune Up? iii) Any other things that you suggest? iv) Do you recommend to get it checked at A*W?
  3. I have some extra cash lying around was thinking of putting a couple of vehicles for taxi service. Are there any ppl who have done this or doing this? what are the prospects for a decent income?
  4. 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?
  5. Hi guys, I've got an Alto 800 (2008). The driver side door of it needs to be slammed to lock properly. I could see that the door beading is a bit worn out which makes the slamming noice louder. I've tried lubricating the door latches / locks as well. Any idea of how to fix this problem at home? Appreciate if you can put some references to parts shops if need any. Thanks.

  7. Hi Guys, I need a Alto k10 old model service manual, I googled it but could't find a way to dowload. If anyone having it , Please let me know . or mail me @ [email protected] Thank you
  8. Hi, so I'm new here and loved reading some great explanations from many. I'm here to ask for similar help on a specific issue that I couldn't find a good answer to. I would like to buy a car and the budget is 1.8-2 million. I was scouring for options and first thing I came up was the Geely Mx7 Mark II. It's within budget and seems like I can get a 4-5 year old one with reasonable options. I also hear that while the interior is not very sturdy, the important parts like the drive train etc are based on a toyota corolla, and even fits corolla parts. (I know the corolla as a really reliable car since our family had AE100 and 121) I also thought about some 2-3 year old Altos which I got to know as reliable and good for hard use as well, and quite fuel efficient, but they are not in anyway safe or comfortable, and really cramped. So would like to avoid it unless there's really no better option. Other option is older Japanese cars. The one I set my sights is a Mazda Familia BJ5P, which actually looks really good, comfortable and spacious, while everyone says Mazdas are very reliable. I found several within budget eith YOM 2000-2002. I loved Hondas as well, especially Civics, but ones within budget are 1996 or so, so guess I'll avoid those. (Same with Toyotas) People say the Honda Citys are good as well, I'd like to know whether they are so actually, since they are assembled elsewhere than Japan. I found several with Vtec engines with YOM 1999-2001. Is it true that 20 year old Japanese cars are better than 2-5 year old Indian or Chinese cars? ? So could you help me out here. What I need is a spacious, reliable and a reasonably safe car. Fuel economy 10+ in city and 13+ outstations is fine. What I really would like to decide between is, Geely MX7 MARK II (2013-2014) MADZA FAMILIA BJ5P (2000-2002) HONDA CITY VTEC (1999-2001) Any good alternative suggestions are welcome as well. Thanks
  9. Hi all, I'm trying to choose my first vehicle. I have no prior experience with vehicles. So far, Japan Alto is the vehicle I found that meets with my requirements. Following are my requirements. My budget is < 2.7 million. I will be daily traveling from Maharagama to Maradana and back A few (around 4) trips to anywhere in the country per year Low maintenance cost and fuel economy are my priorities I'm a bit reluctant to buy vehicles with high mileage due to the possibility of frequent repairs and low fuel economy. I don't like WagonR (Please mind my preference). Can I get some advice on this? Please suggest me some cars and any knowledge on Japan Alto. If I go with Japan Alto, which grade should I buy. ( L, S, X, Turbo RS ). Are price differences between grades really worth the price? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

  17. Hi all, I bought a 2002 Japanese Alto 1 month back. This car was alright until yesterday night when I had to panic break to avoid a collision. I was travelling at around 40 kmph and the vehicle skid when I applied break. It felt like all the wheels locked up and the vehicle slid about 2 meters. The steering didn't work at this time. However, the car performs okay during slow breaking. Did any of you guys face this problem?? If so, how do you solve this. FYI, the ABS light doesn't come on in the dashboard.
  18. Hi all, My Japanese alto gave a slight clicking sound when turning the steering wheel (to the left) and accelerating. This sound was diagnosed as a CV joint failure by my mechanic. Therefore, we replaced the entire left side shaft along with the inner and outer CV joints. Brand new CV joints were not available and had to settle with second hand Japanese parts from Delkanda. However the sound was not sorted out. After another trip to the garage, the right shaft , joints and rack boots were replaced. This also resulted with no improvement of the sound. Now the odd part is that the mechanic is now suspecting a bush of the AT gear box as the cause. He is saying that I have to replace the entire gearbox in the worst-case-scenario. Have you guys experienced this type of an issue? If so, how do you diagnose this?
  19. Hi guys, I recently came across three Japanese Alto's (YOM 2002 to 2004, 650 cc) with 4WD. One owner claimed that he removed the 4WD components to make the vehicle more fuel efficient. Therefore, my question to you experts is how 4WD effect the car's efficiency, performance and most importantly the resell value. All the three vehicles that I saw ranged from 1.7 to 1.8 million. Thanks in advanced.
