Sirion 1.3 Touring (2004-5)

Forum: 

Hello, just found this GREAT site. ?'m from England and living in Turkey.Tomorrow i'm buying a Sirion 2005 registered but 2004 model 1.3SL Touring model. :)i ASSUME TOUR?NG MEANS 4TRACK in the UK???????????????????????? the car seems to have every accessory going:)

Used car prices are very high here, it will cost me 6000 Pounds but from a Daihatsu dealer with full history, 99,000km. (drivers average 25-30k per year here)...

Unknw havent owned a Daihatsu before but i just love the car...any comments about which oil to use or anything would be real helpful, Thankyou Very much in advance.....

You sure it's a 4 Track?

2004 Sirion 1300 4 Track. And I love it.
Don't like the new shape much.

Iv'e never heard of a 4 Track with a triptronic gearbox.
I'm not saying they don't exist - I just have never heard of one !!

So I'm asking. Check underneath and make sure it is permanent 4 Wheel Drive.

As for Oil - You have opened up a can of worms asking this question. Smile
Personally I use Fully Synthetic 5/40.
It costs more but I beleive it is the best you can get.
I have used it in both my Sirions and they purred along with no problems.
Others on here may well tell you different ;);-)

It must be your choice.

Cheers Bob, will check under the hood. Their a number of different versions here in Turkiye.?ncluding sporty,Touring,sl amongst others.

Unknw went to see the car i mentioned above but it hadnt been looked after well and had scratches and bumps plus pieces missing...
FORTUNATELY.....i managed to find another one, 2005 1.3SL, 66,000km,(about 41000 miles)which is extremely low for cars in Turkiye, and the first car i've ever seen here with Full service history and the service book stamped..WOW! so have bought it and will collect it on monday. ?t cost 5,510 of the Queens Pounds which is cheap for second hand cars here...? shall take photos and post them.....Can't wait to driver her...She's called Mrs Jones ..dont know why..just liked the name:)

Happy Days...

What Model.

Look at the firewall at the back of the engine bay and there should be a plate.

It will tell you the model Number (Normally M something.

My 1300 4 Track is M111.

It will tell you the engine type as well underneath the Model Number. If it's the K3 VET engine you have the makings of a cracking car.

I'm not saying any other engine is worse (Before someone takes my head off at the neck)
But it is a proven engine and should be very reliable.

Let us know ok.

didnt have her long

Cray 2Cray 2 SAD NEWS.......i had mrs jones (i named my sirion ) for a couple weeks and drove her foour times before a sudden torrential downpour seems to have taken her from me. She was in the garage under my appartment and the flood waters came suddenly. couldnt save her in time as the water was moving at a ferocious speed but saved myself...she was up to the steering wheel in mud and water, a sad site.....its a massive garage, room for about 30 cars but within two minutes it had risen 1 metre so no chance...very sad..i had waited 8 years to get her. but i did take out insurance the week before and included flood insurance so hopefully she might be saved although i doubt it...
just waiting for news....she's having a wash out before the parts estimate and how long these things take here in Turkey one can only guess but lets hope she is savable........ Cray 2

Happy Days...

Fingers Crossed !!

You gotta be kidding me !!

Fingers crossed a good clean out and she may be ok.

Did water get into the engine itself.
If not you could have a chance!

I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

Criky - What a thing to happen.

Thankyou Bob, yes water and

Thankyou Bob, yes water and mud in the engine but according to one of the service experts Toyota had designed the engine so that the most important parts wouldnt be affected by water. Unknw should hear something back next week.....i want to save her but at the same time if i try and sell her a few years down the line the value will be affected as she has been in a flood...dont know what to think at the mo......will keep you posted, thanks Bob..

Happy Days...

Sounds a minter As for

Sounds a minter Smile As for the trip-tronic & 4 wheel drive, it's not surprising that you can get this model elsewhere. In Japan they sold the YRV turbo in a 4 wheel drive model called the M211G as the standard 2 wheel drive turbo model is called the M201G. And as you are probably aware the Turbo is an automatic with trip-tronic. Unfortunately in the U.K we only saw a 1.3 4-trak YRV model in manual guise and a 2 wheel drive version of the Turbo Sad
