  3. Hi guys, one of friends looking to buy registered KIA sorento 2010/11 or 12 model and seek my help to find out good vehicle. I go through some valuable threads in this forum regarding this vehicle and found both favorable & adverse comments. Ultimately i assume this is a reliable vehicle for normal drive. However found some different types of engine capacities such as 2000cc, 2300cc and 2400cc on both petrol & diesel. We were so confused on what to consider. On the other hand diesel varients got a huge price gap around 500k. Anyone please give some details what should we con
  4. Please give me ur ideas for the these vehicles kia sorento 2012/ X-trail 2012/ pajero 1995-1996 diesel auto/ toyota hilix vigo 2008, which is the most worthy for the 55-60lks fuel economy, comfortability, reselling value, maintains, and the things you guys know about these vehicles.Thank you!
  5. Dear all! I recently purchased an used Sorento 2012 with a mileage of below 100k. It was previously maintained by AutoMiraj in most cases. However, with good intentions I made an inspection with Kia Agents. They’ve given me a quotation of 8lakhs for the “suggested repairs”. They even recommended a Transmission Oil change which costs a staggering 80k. what I need to know is, what are the recommend garages or maintenance places to get a second look or the repairs done? What should I look out for in the near future?
  6. Dear all, As 2020, there are lot of 2005to 2010 korean suv 's(petrol and diesl) are on the market with cheap prize tag compare to japanese/european suv,s. Much appreciate u guys can give an idea what to expect ,when we are buying those cars, and what are the common issues with those cars. Thnks .
  7. Hi Everyone, I'm seeking information on the Kia Sorento 2002 3.5l Petrol Model. I require the following information from the experts here and most importantly from people who have owned it before. Reliability Parts Comfort I am okay with it doing 5km/l in city limits but I need to know if the ride is worth it. I found a good deal which claims to have done only 100k miles so far and is asking 2.3mil for it. I would really appreciate everyone's input on this matter. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi everyone, My dad owned a KIA sportage 2006, but he passed away recently and now the vehicle was passed down to me. the vehicle was always part of the family and dad took very good care of it. recently I saw drops of oil at the bottom of the engine bay and I took it to a nearby garage. the man said its seems there is a leak from the gasket covers. I replaced all the gasket cover lining (I hope I am using the correct term). and the O rings on the top cover of the engine cover and the plugs. (apologies for not knowing the exact terms of the parts). Unfortunately, the oil leak did not stop.
  9. Hi All, Is it OK to buy used 2017 model Picanto nowadays. I would like to have pros and cons regarding to this. It's nice to have your idea about Fuel consumption, Second hand market price, Options available in this model and Parts availability in Sri Lanka
  10. Guys Big favour.I am a bit confused between going for a picanto or wagon r. Wagon R 2017 Basic can be bought for 3 mil with one year warranty from a car seller (Ishara Traders)for the same 3 mil I can get a picanto with 5 years agent warranty. I know wagon r is got better mileage.How about the picanto compared to the Wagon R 2017 Basic ?.Is it okay to forego the mileage per litre as I am only going to be driving mostly around cmb occasionally go outstation. Also whats the difference between wagon r fx and fz models ? Is it reliable to buy from a place like Isha
  11. Hello fellow ALs, This is the first time I'm posting on the forum after using this as an unregistered visitor for quiet some times. I have this average looking question, which I came up with different answers each time I ran it through my mind. Therefore your expertise is strongly required & I seek your valuable advices. I have bit of knowledge on vehicles as my famly owns few from time to time and now its time to grab one for myself. My budget is ranging from LKR 2 million to 4 million. This is the tricky part. I have first hand experience on used car repairs and sometimes I fe

Kia Sorento 2012 Diesel 4. Hyundai Tucson 2011 Diesel 5. Rexton 2008 Diesel You can add if I missed anything related to above categories ☺️☺️
  13. Got the specs of Kia Stonic offerred by Kia Motors, so thought I would publish the details here for anyone interested. I would also like to know your opinion regarding how it compares to other popular small SUVs in Sri Lanka in the same price range such as MG ZS and Hyundai Venue.
  14. Given the popularity and roughly falling in the same price range it seems appropriate to have a comparison of the two. Do give your ideas.
  15. I have a KIA Sorento 2008 version and recently I had to crank quite hard to get it started(early in the morning). Yesterday it didn't start at all. when the mechanic checked, he told me that all four Glow Plugs are not working. Replace those four plugs and with working battery tried o start. But still not working. Dash lights are working. Any sort of a helping thought is appreciated. Thanks
  16. Hey guys, I am going to buy my first vehicle. I need some advise on choosing it. My budget is 2.5 - 3 million. These are the cars that I am interested in so far. Kia Cerato (something around 2010) Kia Rio (Not sure if I can find one, but interested in something around 2010) Ford Focus (around 2010) Mitsubishi Lancer GLX (I think I will have to settle for 2008, if I am going for this option) Could you please comment on the fuel consumption and the reliability. I am trying to find fuel economical car that doesn't cost a fortune to maintain. I am very attracte
  17. Planning to buy my first car and confused whether to go with Kia Picanto 2017 or Perodua Axia 2017. I test drove both vehicles and personally i like Picanto because of the build quality and interior finish but I heard that Axia's fuel consumption is much better than Picanto's. Planning to use this for traveling to work (Colombo - Battaramulla) and driving for Uber in weekends. Any fellow Picanto or Axia users? Thanks in Advance.
  18. Dear Friends, I am new to this forum and new to buying a car as well. So please help with your extensive knowledge about cars for my selection. budget: 2.5 - 2.6 million I will be getting a lease after paying 30% down payment. I have checked some car sales, AL ads and ###### ads. Having gone through these ads, I have a small understanding that toyota vitz 1.0L 2007/2008 and kia picanto 2016 full option fall in that range. 1. Can you please help me decide which is better? 2. Can you please recommend a good, fuel efficient kei car that I can buy for my budget?
  19. Hi all, I am planning to buy a car with a budget around 2.8 mn. currently I am driving a 2008 Vitz, thought of selling it and go to a newer car (YOM after 2015) like picanto, axia or wagon r. For a fact I know Wagon R has the best mileage out of the three car. Mileage is my least concern. I am more concerned on safety, driving pleasure, cost of maintenance, resale value and nice exterior and interior. I was planning to buy a Wagon R, but after speaking to few mechanics I had to change my mind. All of them gave negative feedbacks. Issues in sensors, malfunctioning options
  20. Hi, Just came to be an owner of a Kia Picanto 2016, a CAQ done around 16,000. I heard a rumor about a white smoke (burning of oil) around 60,000 in KIA. anybody faced with this problem in this community? does this apply to Picanto 2016 as well. Please explain.
  21. What is the actual market price of a diesal sorento 2012
  22. Hello guys! I need some advice for buying my first car. My maximum budget is restricted to around 3 million, so I have few options. What do you think is best - buy a brand new manual Kia Picanto (around 3 mil the last time I checked) or import something like a 2015/2016 Vitz from Japan? Or forget both and go the local second-hand route with possible risks involved? I won't be actually buying one until a year or so, but I'm doing some research in advance anyway. I have zero prior experience with cars. Thanks for your opinions and advice!
  23. Hi All, Just bought a Kia Picanto. So far so good. Except, the radio is driving me nuts. The problem goes- I set a radio station (using preset) and drive while listening to it. All of a sudden, the radio starts "tuning" for another frequency. And this does not stop. Nothing in the manual (the manual actually has an older version for the radio and instructions) in terms of how to fix this. Did some research online and sort of found that this is due to the AF (alternate frequency) function on display and turning it off would fix the problem. It was never turned on to begin with. Also, eve
  24. I currently have a somewhat basic Kia Sorento from 2014 which I am planning on replacing with a newer SUV (probably a crossover). Due to the lack of a sun roof, 4WD and an extra set of seats in the back, and 100k on the odometer, I assume the sale price would be in the range of 7 to 8 million. I am looking to replace it with a newer vehicle, and would appreciate your recommendations. I have checked out the Toyota CH R 2017 (worrying reviews) or a few years older HONDA CR-V. Or would it be better to stretch the budget further (up to another 1m) and consider something like the Audi Q2
  25. Hi, I'm looking for a brand new car to buy and I am quite interested in the new Picanto as it looks very nice and the fit and finish of the inside plastics is quite excellent compared to other cars in the price range and they have a 5 year warranty as well. I need to know how is the fuel economy within city and if the engine has enough power to wizz around traffic. Or is it better to go for the other alternatives in this price bracket like the Toyota Wigo, Suzuki Celerio or the Perodua Axia?
