    Default so finaly going to buy a Hilux Vigo 2005/6/7

    Hi guyz

    so finaly after a discussion with my vendor today he is willing to take my RX8 in an exchange for a Hilux vigo 05/06/07 (thai Version)

    or 2009 up toyota Hilux vigo domestic version



    or any car of my choice

    first i was planning to go for a nissan 350z roadster (soft top) but then gave up the idea realizing the problem of driving in isolation.

    thaught of the merc c-class too, but then comparing it against the vigo its no match.


    so guyz who already own vigos.

    please inform me what should i look into before buying a thai vigo.


    is it the right decision, how can i make sure that the vehicle is a genuine vehicle with genuine paint and has all the proper documents.


    i have to make sure the engine and suspension are good.



    and most of all my budget is 23 will i be able to get a good vigo in that budget. (includes rx8 price).

    considering fresh unregistered versions r going for 2.8 mil.

    so finaly going to buy a Hilux Vigo 2005/6/7 - vigo with snorkel tow


    i have to keep this thread the most happening as i need lot of information on this subject and i have plenty of days to make a sound decisio.

    as i am visiting pakistan on 10 th of january only for 3 day's only to purchase the vehicle and go back.

    people might consider me crazy as i hardly used the rx8 800 kms in this whole year i baugh it in march.

    and again i am going for the vigo which will be parked through most of the year. unless i keep a driver.


    call me what ever i am a car lover when i was a kid i was crazy about cricket now the same passion has transformed into cars.

    i eat cars,i sleep cars, and i even dream cars.


    most of all thanks for your generous advices & suggestions.

    ALHUMDULILLAH & MASHALLAH

    hello,

    i own a toyota hilux tiger 1kd 3L engine. it is a perfect machine for me, off road expeditions / camping and almost everything hunting.

    i would not buy a fast car over a 4x4 as on a 4x4 u can go anywhere while on a fast car u just go fast and stay on the road... 4x4 / SUV can take u anywhere...

    so buying a Vigo... plz know that they are not well suspension as u expect a prado... due to less weight on the rear...

    Please look for new engine in Vigo 2kd and if possible buy Thai Vigo as its engine will deliver much more power than Indus engine.

    If you need to ask anything specific, plz do...

    yes that is the reason i want to get rid of my rx8 as i had to travell alone most of the time.


    thats why i want to go for a vigo as it is spacious and a work horse, i am hoping to make a lot of trips on my vigo from khi to punjab by road, as i normaly take the flight or when i feel like enjoying the travel i use daewoo. not the best but still pretty good.


    yer how is the mantainence on the tiger.

    i realy like the tiger fully loaded in mint trim

    please do share pics with us.

    yea i know the rear end bumping problem i have driven a 2010 thai version it throws u off on the jumps.


    that is because of the leaf spring rear suspension.....ppl blame the vigo but they dont realize it was built as a work horse and rear leaf springs can support and tow a lot more weight then a coil spring.

    but ofcourse as i said i do a lot of traveling and a lot of hd work so vigo is ideal for me.


    and then i am quiet big in size and cars exactly dont suit me i love the apprearance of big vehciles

    Did you buy a Vigo? If yes, then how is the experience, especially in terms of drive? Is it very bumpy, bumpier than a Mehran or Santro.?
    Can't you seat your kids in the back or they would be complaining about their heads bumping the roof? These are the views I heard from few people.
    I want to own an SUV, but all I can find in a 3 Million budget are prado TZ with zillion miles on the ODO and I don't know what they have been through. Same is the case with Surf.

    Atleast a zero meter Vigo would be a NEW thing.

    Can I install the coil springs.
    Help!!!!!!!!

    Hmmm well 3 million is some huge budget if buying an offroader. I think 2 million should be sufficient. Anyways if ur a 3 million guy u wouldn't like vigo, trust me.

    Have u tried 80 series land cruiser 1996 model aka 24 multi valve.

    Its an excellent offroader that comes around 20 mil. Keep in mind spending 2 lack on it.

    I love hilux. One reason is its worth 1.5 million and I take it anywhere I want. 300+nm torque is more than I need.

    The land cruiser is 4.2 diesel with turbo.

    Plz don't buy pajero ( I call it Cancer )

    Do not buy Vigo ...its a Bump Heaven and you will end up your rest life in bumping even on straight road. and never opt indus assembled as it is under powered with 2KD motor in her.
    I love to restore and than test it to its maximum....
