I like to learn from the learned...
Got it 770K Blue early 2008 manual odometer reading 22K FF CNG 152KM per Rs. 500/- (a bit costly buy but its clean without any paint jobs etc. but with one non-remote key and BTW no coolant in the car just plain water.
Alhamdolillah, everybody (mean 5 knowledgeable ones) took the test drive and saying that it is indeed a clean one.
Gone to Naseer Autos SITE (on a lucky no-labor charging day). Waited for 6 hours patiently but their check-up was thorough and the total bill was Rs. 1200/- for axcel seal fix, greal oil topup and the wash. I liked those guys that morning but the bill made me love them in that afternoon :-). They gave a list of issues though:
- Engine Oil pan has been hit needs replace (but not urgently)
- Middle exhaust assembly (dolikey) is also bumped. (any worries?)
- They want to do some work on Axel inner and outer as well (faint noises only I think it OK for a four year old car)
- Two power window buttons are working intermittently (might be due to carbonization etc.)
After reading the service manual and all 40 pages of this thread make me feel confident about my car.
BTW, I have three further questions:
Some times I felt gear movement while holding it if I pull my leg off the pedal. Is this the ply or engine foundation or something needs replacement?
Front tyres seem OK but others are not that good. Do I need to replace them? Can I do from 14 inch to 15 in a limited budget?
Does this wearing means that the 22K milage reading is fake?
Thanks for your time in advance.
