Re: Tech Thread - Ford Ranger

I remember reading civic minded post and I said those issues must have been corrected as the sales person convinced me. The van is an absolute joy to drive but there is a price to pay.

I am 80% sure they do injectors/throttle body cleaning and tranny oil at 50000kms. Plugs r usually at 100000kms as it's iridium plugs.

Re: T&T OFFICIAL new vehicle prices and discussion thread

Saw the 1.5 turbo civic for $279k. Non turbo 1.6 is $239. The 1.5 comes with leather seats, sunroof, fog lamps, remote start and dual exhaust.
Is the $40,000 extra worth it?

Re: What type/grade of engine oil is best for the cy lancers

Normally use a Fully synthetic oil 10-30w and change every 10,000kms as serviced by Diamond Motors..
The blue bottle Shell is semi synthetic. Its good but won't run this beyond 7000kms.

Re: D van is 3 days old

Engine sounds normal for a 2.2. The plastic engine cover has some sound deadening material to help suppress the engine noise.
Nothing to be alarmed about but still take it in if u feel uncomfortable.

Re: D van is 3 days old

Sorry about your situation but if you realize you r encountering unusual issues demand another vehicle.
They will try to keep u quiet but some of those vehicles have some major issues.

Re: 2017 Kia Sportage

Hey don’t know about the exact version but you can ask your sales rep.
Even if he BS you and you experience this overrev, just take the vehicle in. the software upgrade took approx 20mins.

Enjoy your new ride.
