    Default Toyota Vitz Owners/Fan Club

    The purpose of this post is to gauge the interest in forming a Toyota Vitz Owners Club in different cities of Pakistan. As we all know that Vitz has become quite popular in the last year or so. More and more people are buying it or are interested to know more about it. The purpose of the club would be to share technical / operational information regarding the car. As well as help fellow members with different issues regarding the everyday running of the car. There would be regular meets and get together as well as cruises. The criteria to join the club would be to own a Vitz and a desire to help and share information with fellow members. I myself am based in Karachi, so I can take the lead in taking off this project here. Other can do the similar thing in their respective cities. If there is enough interest, a formal charter / by-laws would be issued with club rules and regulation as well as its mission statement. The club would operate under the same rules & conditions as other international car clubs. To take this project off the ground, I believe 10 people in each city would be the minimum requirement. If anyone from Karachi is interested in being a part of this club, please email me at danyal1@hotmail.com. Pakwheelers from other cities can share their email addresses under this post if they are willing to take the lead for their respective cities. I hope to this see become a success someday and a model for other to follow. LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN GUYS!!!

    Seat belts can also be replaced by unscrupulous car dealers here as mentioned by @Storm in one of my posts. I'm sure there must be other ways to beat these cheats.

    some points which our very own ALTA told me were:

    considering 2004 model :

    1. The interior panel of the air-conditioning will have a silver finish with 3 knobs which are for vent selection, temperature selection, fan speed selection

    2. touch open for back-hood/hatch not the usual key-button like the ones in mehran or vitz 99/00

    3. crystal lights (could be changed)

    4. manufacturing year on seat belts (could be changed)

    best is to meet in person with alta at carspot.
    I found him to be honest ,but his prices were higher so I didnt buy from him otherwise if the price difference was near/same I would'nt have given a second thought and bought from altamash

    He might still have a gun-metallic grey 2003 vitz it might be worth checking out

    I have managed to get vitz user manual for model 2005 which unfortunately is of no use to me since I have an older model

    any one interested mail me in private abbas.rizvi@yahoo.com

    requests on the forum will not be entertained... cmon guys atleast make some effort

    I also have the repairing manual for vitz 00-04 but that also is of no use since most of us want the user manual.

    the repair manaul is of 107 MB so I cant mail it any one interest mail be in the above address we might be able to arrange something via usb disk etc

    yo ucan also take out the ashtray and read the date stamp on it as well as popping out the glove box and checking the date stamp in the back as well. both are things which the dealers tend to forget.

    if requests on the forum will not be entertained perhaps you should find some other place to lurk since this is what people do on forums....

    Storm,

    Can you please help me out here, i asked this question or the forum earlier as well but perhaps ppl seems to be more intersted in beautification of VITZ not its performance.

    Any way the problem is my there is prolonged engine knock after the 3rd and 4th shift, any reason what could it be, what to check or get checked, plus i've also noticed 'petrol' smell from the engine oil both 'filler cap' and the 'dip stick'.

    thanks in advance!

    Regards,
    Usman

    I think it would be cheaper if he purchased the oil and filter and did it through a petrol station or mechanic rather than Toyota Central.

    @usmantaokeer
    without seeing the car i'd only ba able to guess, nost likely your catalytic converter is dead or your intake is dirty, these engines are all computer controlled and the only other variables are the externals which can't be fixed by the ECU, have them checked and let me know what happens.

    @irfibaig
    this is a much disputed debate, my advice is to stick to the manufacturers specs and choose whatever oil you are comfortable with (i'm personally against synthetic since it costs more and has almost no benefit to mineral oils.

    @tyrone_40
    i agree 100%

    @raja_aftab_yasin
    probably near 12-13 lacks

    @iatech
    nobody has it in english here yet i think (not for 99-2004)

    I had the fluids changed from a regular petrol station, going to toyota was just a safe option.

    @Storm
    I'll be more than happy if you could take a look at my car, i can bring it over to you anytime!

    I did take the car to toyota central for the knocking thingy but they said they dont have the 'Software' for Vitz so they cant 'TUNE' it. Though they did change the spark plugs which so far have no effect on the knock problem.

    What next???


    Regards,

    Usman

    I remember reading about some good Vitz mechanic on one for the Vitz posts sometime back, probably located on Khalid Bin Waleed Road. I'll do a search and see if I can find it and give u the link.
