    how can I identify Toyota aqua g-grade

  • 2. thkandy  |  October 20, 2014 at 11:44 AM

    Hello, I have just bought an Aqua-G grade (2013/March) with a millage of 13000km. I checked the engine oil and it looks still as original oil. One of my friends told me that I don’t need change engine oil since it should have been changed at 10000km service and I can drive another 2000km without any problem. However, I am thinking to do a full service and to change the oil immediately since the history is not known.

    Do I need to change oil immediately? How often oil is changed in hybrid vehicles? In every 5000km? On what else I should pay attention during the first service? Is wheel balancing essential? Do I need to check the hybrid battery? Could you please suggest me a good place around Kandy to get my car served? Thanks for your valuable comments.

      i’m sure u will satisfy about my idea,contact me via this number 0710350365

    • 4. shehan36  |  October 21, 2014 at 9:36 AM

      it is better to change the oil and do the full service because history is a mystery haha. Oil grade for hybrid is 0W20 and you can change in every 6months or 7500km or so.
      On your first service you better remove all wheels inspect them, check the undercarriage and a full report service. Wheel balancing and alignment you should check in every 6 months. Battery at every service interval do a Scan so the electric system and charging rates can be read

    I have bought a Toyota VOXY Hybrid, are there any upgrades to be done ?

  • 6. Asitha  |  October 13, 2014 at 8:40 PM

    Hi, I have a complete setup of my Toyota-Aqua-2014, with Audio, Video, TV and navigation. But navigation SD came with Japanese maps and the language. Can you please anybody tell me where to convert this to English?

  • 7. Prasad  |  October 10, 2014 at 3:10 PM

    Can anyone tell me where can I buy Toyota Aqua carpet set in sri lanka(rubber kind…)

  • 8. Kamal Mettananda  |  October 6, 2014 at 9:43 PM

    Hi, I do have a navigation system NSZT-W62G (without SD Card) and it only supports Japanese. SD Card will cost around 10,000/=. This system is an original from Toyota and has following features
    1. AM/FM
    2. SD Card
    3. CD/DVD
    4. TV (not working in Sri Lanka)
    5. BT (bluetooth)

    Radio, Steering Wheel functions, Reserve camera display, AC Temperature are working fine.

    Could you please advice whether it will be worth buying the SD Card? Or will it be worth trying to buy a new display which has English support?


    • 9. Shehan Mendis  |  October 9, 2014 at 3:57 PM

      AM/FM supports till only 99mhz frequency right? This is a original setup but has limited options. You can buy a new setup with 01 year warranty at Petco lanka starting from 22500/- (same as other places)
      The setup will be in english and have the mentioned options. If you are going to buy the SD card from where are you gonna get it?

      Its worth buying an english setup from Petco or Gilbert . Anyways prices definitely starts from 22500/- everywhere.

      Its yours to choose.

  • 11. Malinda  |  October 2, 2014 at 12:55 PM

    I’m going to buy a Prius C from Toyota Lanka for 4.5 mil. with a 4 year warranty, is it worth the money? i’m also considering the honda fit gp5

    • 12. kalum Nishantha  |  October 3, 2014 at 10:59 PM

      Dear Mr Malinda, my advice is go to toyota prius C, Why?
      What are the advantages you can get if you purchased Toyota Prius C .
      1. Availability of Spare parts for toyota C is good in Sri Lanka comparing with Honda GP1.
      2. Periodical maintenance cost is low comparing with Honda GP1..
      3. 4 Years authorized dealer warranty
      4. Toyota Lanka 100% responsible for availability of spare parts.
      5. Ability to repair complicated faults in way side garages.
      6. Real brand new and accident free vehicle.
      7. Genuine mileage.
      8. Export quality vehicle (especially designed & manufactured for general countries including Sri Lanka).
      9. Fuel consumption is low copmparing with GP1.

    • 13. Shehan Mendis  |  October 9, 2014 at 4:02 PM

      Mr. Kalum is correct. Prius C does more on fuel compared to GP5 and YOU have a 04warranty which is very safe.

      One issue is car is bit small compared to GP5.

      GP5 has a Honda’s new technology and it supposed to be unsuccessful. Reason it being DUAL Clutch Drive System.

      Go for Prius C if you want to play safe

  • 14. Manjula  |  October 1, 2014 at 11:03 PM

    Can anyone tell me which is best? Aqua or the Fit? Which one is the most economic in terms of fuel ?

    • 15. kalum Nishantha  |  October 3, 2014 at 11:03 PM

      Dar Mr. Manjula, Please see the answer I given for Mr malinda’ question, It is same for your question.

    My aqua 2014 has original eclipse AVN Z03i Japan display. Can we install navi system for that player ? And any method of English translation?

    • 17. kalum Nishantha  |  October 3, 2014 at 11:09 PM

      There is no way to change the language to English, Pls contact navigation system providers in Sri Lanka to check any possibilities to add navigation system (Ex. SALA)

  • 18. zakky  |  September 29, 2014 at 9:41 PM

    Hi; I am planing to buy TOYOTA AQUA. but, there are several versions 2012 and 2013. I would like to know how to identify the differences between 2012 and 2013 versions. please be kind to reply me.
    thank you in advance;

    • 19. kalum Nishantha  |  October 3, 2014 at 11:21 PM

      Dear Mr Shakeel, Its quietly difficult to find from outside appearance & options, Some peoples are changing outside & inside features of the vehicle. Better to check it in auction report given from japan and 2nd option is give Model code & frame Number to Toyota Lanka then they can tell you real manufacturing year of the vehicle through the EPC system.

    • 24. kalum Nishantha  |  October 3, 2014 at 11:40 PM

      I think you have to re- install software for W62, (MAP CD), contact Toyota Lanka or San Lanka or Petco Lanka.

  • 25. shane  |  September 21, 2014 at 8:24 AM

  • 39. afkar  |  September 5, 2014 at 5:35 PM

    I imported a toyota aqua 2012 from japan….and I use it very rarely.
    one day the problem occurred I heard a rattle noise on the engine and i taught there wasn’t fuel and i pumped petrol day’s later and it didn’t start (during the 2 days of no fuel my son has tried to start many time) plz do give me a solution whether to charge or replace auxiliary battery or any other solutions. thank you

    • 40. Shehan Mendis  |  September 11, 2014 at 12:02 PM

      Its better you can check the vehicle from a reputed place. Most probable it will be noise from the injection. Try to calling Hybrid Motors – 0112696246. If you want you can refer my name since i had similar problem with Prius

      • 41. Kalum Nishantha  |  October 4, 2014 at 12:15 AM

        Usually that rattling noise come from damper plate located between engine & transmission, Its come due to unbalance of engine & motor power, Solution is ,re-set hybrid system to factory settings. To set factory settings properly, we have to do some little jobs on the system. Pls contact me if necessary.

    Dear friends, I am working in uk at the moment. Herein UK there is a Yaris Hybrid(Hatchback) and it is about £ 17000 brand new. Is it similar to the Aqua in Sri Lanka. If I import this the Aqua parts would be ok for that And what woul be the total tax for it? Please let me know.
    Thank you very much.

    • 48. nalinjawa  |  August 26, 2014 at 2:21 PM

      International model for Aqua is called Prius C. Usually Toyota Vitz is called Yaris in Europe. So Yaris Hybrid must be a hybrid version of Vitz

  • 62. chami  |  July 9, 2014 at 3:40 AM

    Hi, I am buying a aqua used one tomorrow for 32. ;its 2012 with push start S grade and without multi functions. It has run 13000km and colour dark gray. It does not have a spare tyre. Can anyone advice me how to and what to check when buying please.

    • 63. kamal  |  July 13, 2014 at 6:37 PM

      The only way you can get full inspection is from Toyota. Main things you have to worry is if it has been in a major accident and repaired in SL or Japan. Check for the service records,and scratch marks under body. I say 32 is a reasonable price.
      Drive happy on a Aqua.

    • 64. Thilan de Silva  |  September 10, 2014 at 12:36 PM

      Aquas going at and below Rs.3.6M in Colombo are surely accident vehicles bought from Damaged vehicles auctions in Japan. So be careful!!!

      Also don’t get cheated by absence or altered auction sheets, which are now common with Car Sales!

    • 72. kamal  |  June 18, 2014 at 8:06 PM

      From Pinsiri Bandara –

      Thalawathugoda – Go to “Care Point” in Nugegoda road. Also in 174 near Kallalgoda there is a service station they also good for wash and other stuff. and there are 1 new places near there but not sure. and near ITN road turn also not sure.
      For full service I say go to some reputed place as Toyota/Hybrid tech.
      Or i know a place near Dematagoda area where has the capability and equipment to do the services and scanning,

    • 75. kamal  |  June 18, 2014 at 7:51 PM

      Better check with TOYOTA I guess all the wiring and sockets are there already in any AQUA if its not come with a push start. I also like to know this.

  • 77. than thilan  |  June 11, 2014 at 4:07 PM

    I bought an Aqua 2012 and got it checked at Toyota Lanka Rathmalana on 10.06.2014. The seller showed me the auction sheet with markings for a deep scratch on the diver side front dooer. But “great” Toyota Lanka report did not reveal the repair and my opinion is they are just playing for the sellers.
    If you too do this, close relationship between car sellers T/lanka staff will not be missed by tou.

    DO NOT TRUST TOYOTA LANKA. – My personal opinion is that.

    • 78. kamal  |  June 18, 2014 at 7:41 PM

      DId you notice the scratch in the driver side front door?
      Better inform this to Toyota Lanka Wattala. They take these problems very
      seriously. I also noticed many sellers prefer to go to Toyota Lanka Rathmalana rather than Maharagama or Wattala.

  • 79. Janaka Amarasinghe  |  June 10, 2014 at 9:00 AM

    Hi all, I have a Toyota aqua made 2012 and brought with 4km. Now it is nearly 18000+. Recently i figured out my fuel economy is nearly 16.5 Km/L driving on Colombo and Negambo road which was earlier around 22Km/L and I have changed the air filter as well, but no improvement. I’m using Cepetco 95 octane fuel from the beginning as many said it is best to use 95 octane fuel for better fuel economy. Please help me in rectifying this issue.

    • 80. Ranjan  |  June 18, 2014 at 1:51 PM

      I am driving an Aqua. My fuel economy is 14 – 16 Km/L. I have serialized some of the reasons as follows… engine stop & start frequently, driving short distances, engine on with AC on while stop, when stop in traffic not changing “D” to “P”, heavy use of AC and aggressive acceleration. But as I heard from few aqua owners 16 – 17 Km/L is the maximum we can get in city areas (Colombo).

      • 81. kamal  |  June 21, 2014 at 7:12 AM

        Ranjan, Its the driving style.. im usualiy run around 50Kmph in Colombo with 22Km/L but one of my friend run like 60-75 Kmph and gets 18 Km/L. yes and all above is correct i have seen them by experience.

    • 82. kamal  |  June 18, 2014 at 7:17 PM

      Janaka, did you use the ECO mode all the time ? and what’s your average speed ? and also i notice if we drive in a heavy-heavy traffic and do lot of braking it will decrease the mileage. Few areas you can increase the mileage is ,correct tire pressure, drive between 45-60 Kmph for best mileage and do a scan to see if the system is showing any errors.

    Hi, I’m looking for a AQUA L grade since i’m not much interested on additional options except the fuel consumption ( since the technology of L and G is same ) i feel depending on my requirements i don’t want any additional options such as push start,multifunctional staring wheel ect… can some one give me a price for a AQUA L grade these days please ? It will be half cash and half lease.

    • 87. K_B  |  June 3, 2014 at 9:47 PM

      i have bought a new L grade white with 3 year warranty and has run 14K and i have run for a month now and its a nice machine. it gives me around 21KmL in heavy traffic and around 28-31KmL in outstation and handling, stability and comfort is great. i was able to cut the weekly fuel cost 1/2. Did a resent trip about 300Kms and i have spend a only about 1800 worth of petrol.
      But any one willing to buy before buying do a Toyota checkup else u will be fooled and give a accident repaired car by dealers. Toyota guys showed me a such G LED one for 4.1mil with a bend chassis. Poor fellow was cheated by the dealers.
