    Default Toyota Platz/Echo Owners & Fans Club

    @Psycho-killer
    Thanks for giving me honour to open this club.

    Since the no. of platz owners is increasing gradually in Pakistan, it is now necessary to have our own club sothat we share our technical knowledge, our experience and problems with each other.This will help many members in maintaining their rides properly, searching for spare parts and so on.So here is our own club. All Platz owners and fans are welcome to participate and contribute towards this club to keep it always up.

    I bought my platz just 2 weeks back which is a/t, 1.0L engine, navy blue metallic colour, 2002 model. I bought it in 480k.It is registered but has no cng.I found it very reliable, more spacious and more comfortable than my earlier city99.It has all the features one could wish to have in his car.So far, I am very satisfied with it. Here are a few pics of my ride:

    1. On the back of the car is written "VVT-i" below the Platz monogram.


    2. Check the front seat belts, there is a tag at the base mentioning the manufacturing date.


    BTW how much did you pay for the car? when you bought it? registered or unregistered?

    @bughlol

    Thank you for your tips, the tags say made for toyota in 2004, and there is no VVTi mono under platz at the back.
    I paid 780,000/-, Bought it almost 2 weeks ago.

    According to Papers

    Platz 2005
    Imported April 2008
    Registered June 2008
    CNG Installed
    Auto Transmission
    Back View Camera, GPS Navigation
    Toll Card Reader.
    Driven in Pakistan for almost a year.
    Odo Meter Showed almost 41000Kms.
    All in all A nice car, just liked this car upon my first trial, as an impulse buyer bought it in the next couple of days. Have Been enjoying it ever since. Driving is a pleasure in this, although handling could be improved by having wider tyres i think, so will upgrade when the need arises. A few Bruises on the front Bumper nothing major, that's to be expected,previous owner had a couple of visits to Lahore. Few pics Attached

    I'm sorry to say, I just don't wanna depress you buy this Platz is 2004. The price you paid is somewhat right considering the current inlflation although you may find many around 650 to 700K.

    Your car is fine, don't think and bother for what has happened, enjoy life !

    BTW if you've got stock Brigdestone Blizzak tires, change them asap. Go for Michellin Certis, Michellin Energy or Yokohama Aspec A300 in 175/70/R13 and alloys as well if your pocket is still heavy

    @Bughlol

    Thank you brother for your consideration but i am not that easily depressed, doesn't matter to me if i bought it over priced if i like something and i need it it does not matter what conditions are attached i will have it as long as it suits me and the thing works. Since i have no problems with it no engine light on cng any longer, no tampering with meters as done on some cars i have seen here, plus its an FL car so me not too worried about overpriced.

    good tip regarding tyres but i think they are Yokohoma and are new previous owner changed them 2-3 months ago, as i mostly drive in Isb so will keep these till i need to change.

    @mushtaqahmad

    My advice to you is to live with the problem if you can. Reason is if a mechanic opens up your door, as the panels are mostly of plastic and fabric (like my car has), he will never be able to get hem secured again properly, no matter how good he is there will be some loosening of panels/locks, which will start squeaking in a couple of days if not immediately. so don't get your door opened by any mechanic. Live with it if you can otherwise the door might start squeaking.

    You can get them from "ebay" or if you've any links in Dubai, it would be quite easier for you. You can also manage them from South Africa or Tanzania as well. Search for "Toyota Echo shocks" in ebay, it'll definitely bring fruitful results.
