    I have Cuore 2003, CNG + Patrol right now. I am planning to sale it and buy Vitz 06 1.0. My budget is between 9-10 lacs. I am really confused. Some people say:


    • Vitz 1.0 is not good economical option because you can’t install CNG in it and hence will have to drive on Petrol which will be heavy load on my pocket.
    • Maintenance will more expensive.
    • Vitz resale is not good.
    • Mechanics are not well trained for Vitz.
    • Honda City will be a good option as one can install CNG in it. It is local and mechanics are familiar with it. I can get a good City in this budget and it will not be heavy on my pocket


    Personally, I like Vitz very much and want to buy it but above points have made me confused. Please share your experience and guide me what should I do. I want some satisfying answers of above points so that I can proceed on replacing my ride.



    PS: Any other option....??

    AoA,

    Brother it all depends on your pocket. If you can afford the fuel calculations we have made, go for vitz. But if you cannot, or you don't want to, then obviously ALL ODDS WILL GO AGAINST VITZ. Won't they?

    Best of luck,
    regards,

    1.3 L Vitz 06 is not within his budget.

    At one end the guy is clearly saying he focuses on petrol efficiency and people here at suggesting a car that would consume more plus is not within his range!

    You are more than welcomed brother. Ahan nice. MashAllah. Nice. Go for it and best of luck.

    I have not driven the ECO version yet. I hope someone will come in and help you. drtariqazeem bhai is owning an ECO 1.0 vitz now a days. You can PM him for ECO stuff.

    By ECO you mean the one which stops at signals, etc?

    You would be charged more, it doesnt have much extra value, my suggestion.. plus if it malfunctions, I doubt many mechanics/electricians would solve the issue properly.

    Yes ivtec3......ECO is the system in which engine stops at break and restarts on accelerator.

    I have been going through market. Vitz 06 unregistered (ECO or without ECO) will be easily available around 10. (do let me know if any registered is available obviously it will be of less price)

    Some showroom boy told me that in ECO cars 2nd battery which is underneath the front passenger seat does not need maintenance. It is life long. Just protect it from water. This need to be clear here. One more thing if this system gets out of order then what, is there any button or way to bypass this system.

    I also noticed that showroom owners / workers have not much knowledge about specs of these vitz.

    Yes, if they are the same price, go for one without ECO, its gonna be hassle free for you.

    If eco is out of order, it will still be vitz without eco function . No need to get it fixed if repair is expensive.

    the only worst thing about new vitz is , very high sound , comes mainly from its silencer i guess. . .

    Can someone please tell me what will be the monthly cost of keeping Vitz 2000 manual CNG like if someone drives almost 1500km/month in Karachi city? How much will it cost total including:

    1: Fuel (Both petrol and cng)- Petrol for start
    2: Monthly tunning/service
    3: insurance
    4: Allowance for uncertainty.. let that allowance be Rs.1000/month
    5: Any other monthly expense since it would be my 1st car.

    Forget It On CNG........! You Will End Up Ruining Its Engine Soon....!
    Drive It On Petrol...A Good 1SZ Will Easily Gave Around 11-12km...If Engine Is Good


    Your Cost Depends Totally On How Healthy Car Engine Is And What Condition You Got It
