i would personally go for option 2,3 and I would pick 2 sedans here. One would be the corolla (facelift should launch in sometime) it is well equipped and safety cautious car. The other one I would check Audi A3 or the BMW 3 series. But if it definitely has to be from your list the I would go for the Fortuner with my eyes shut. There are good…[Read more]
For a daily use car I would suggest the new Honda City (I just saw your later question, so I presume you are quite keen on the car). Your second car should be a premium SUV – as it would serve multiple purposes. The new Endeavour looks promising, but from the existing lot, pick either the Toyota Fortuner or the Mitsubishi Pajero.

Where was the car overhauled Doc? It certainly looks like a case of a blown water jacket or a head gasket. Camry’s last for more than 500,000kms easily. How many kms has your car done?
White smoke is a classic sign of the car burning coolant/oil. Oil in fact, would be a bluish white smoke that would keep puffing out of the exhaust and increase as you rev it.

As answered in your previous post, your car in burning oil, which points to shoddy overhauling. Oil seeping into the cylinder normally indicates something wrong with the piston rings. A leaking gasket tends to be accompanied by an overheating engine.
the smoke is not bluish white but mixture of black and white ,,,,,,,the mechanic said that the noise is of hydrocompensators,,,,,
Now that is a new word Doc. Hydrocompensators…!! It is either something else that he is referring to or doesn’t know what he is talking about. Also, since Toyota service is not very expensive, I d recommend you take your car to a Toyota ASC and have it checked there, if not repaired.
Sounds like the typical ‘oh, go away’ answers they give to get rid of you when they know they have bungled. Get your car checked by any good mechanic or a Toyota dealer.
