    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!!!

    @Rawfay & @Gorkan
    Thanks for the explanation.

    @Wahab590:
    For price check, you should better visit your local market; or read the adds in Sunday newspaper and then by making calls to different dealers, sellers. Thats what i did when i was keeping myself updated about the prices.

    Here are a couple of contacts:

    03332135567 (Altamash-Karachi)
    03219450248 (Riffat-Lahore)

    Riffat is the guy from whom i bought my ride about a week ago. But i don't reccommend you any. Just get the prices checked by calling them. Hope it helps.

    if you go through this thread, most prolly you'd find the answers to all your questions, about the prices, the best way is to survey the local market, since you are in lahore, you can check jail rd, main boulevard defense, maulana shaukar ali rd faisal town and sunday bazar in samanabad, and in mazong, near ganga ram area. but just be careful with these dealers,

    removing the CAT is pretty simple, i have posted the procedure here (https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply.asp?TopicID=78490&ForumID=27) i believe if would be helpful, check that out, and do leave your comments

    you can get it done from any roadside mechanic, do it yourself using his tools or guide him how to do it.

    about springs and spacers, i dont think its a good idea to mess with the original suspension, since its extremely good in its stock form, i have got aluminum spacers installed on top of the rear springs but they make squirking noise when depressed, so i am thinking of getting them removed and just be careful with the bumps etc.

    about oilchange etc, i think you should get the stuff from some reliable spare parts shop and get them changed at any decent workshop, there is no rocket science, and if you go through some of the pages in this thread, you'd get a better idea of what oil, filters and plugs to use,

    i am still using the stock tires, although i think its the time to change them now

    high/low beam is adjusted by pulling/pushing the lever on the right side of the wheel, its just like most of the other cars.

    @all

    How many litres does each bar on the fuel guage be equivalent to? Is it ok to run the car till the last bar flashes or is it better to re-fill the tank when about 2 bars are left?

    Secondly, my brake pads need to be changed as it makes a sqeaking sound in the mornings when driving the car slow. Is it ok if I continue to drive it for a month of so before replacing it or will it harm the drum, braking mechanism etc.?

    Hi every1,

    Sorry for not posting pictures as yet. Been busy at work. Promise to do so ASAP.

    I have the 2005 Vitz and I recently got my oil and oil filter changes. I put in Castrol 20W - 50W.
    Now I am experiencing a very very slight power loss whenever I am standing at a traffic signal and in gear. What happens is that the fuel digital meter backlight slightly flickers and so does the internal lights in the same tune as the engine is sounding. When I put the car in parking it is fine. The car does not knock or dies down. Even cold starts as perfect. Just a flick of the key and it turns on.

    Can oil do this?
    What oil do I put in?

    Im scared!!!

    Help pls

    @ taha,,, Yar i told u to use caltex 10-30.... y did u use castrol 20-50.... ??? ...
    and the power loss that isnt a big issue its related to sum current setting i guess...
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    @ tyrone . well i guess each bar is equal to 5 lters .. and 40 is the total capicity.. with the tank full to mouth i get 34-36 liters maximum... well it depends on your fueling habits i try to get the most out ov every fuel tank and get it filled just after the last lite blinks and a friend ov mine fills it up just after 4 - 5 bars are finished......

    @chinyoti

    Thanks. I heard that its not good to leave it till the last bar as a lot of kachra goes into the fuel pump / filter?????

    One bar gives me about 40-45 kms with A/C on all the time.........which is about 9 km/ litre. I use the A/C fan speed on No.1 only or No.2 maximum not more than that unless its very hot outside. Is that economical????

    @ tyrone ,, well depend coz the faster ull refill the lesser fuel would come in ... and vice versa so no big issues but the fuel pump thing can be anoying so better be at the safe side my first bar gives me around 65-70 and rest on average 50 kms ... so it makes around 360 and a lil more and when my dad drives it . the car crosses 400 and i dunt noe how ..... ?? ....umm the a/c fan thingy well when its hot my fan is on 3 or hi .. and at nite usually at 1 or 2 ... but a freind was telling me that fan speed has nothing to do with petrol consumption coz fan comes in cars without a.c also the petrol is related with the a.c button only... i dunt noe how true was he ...

    one more thing i mite be wrong but my car gives me a better fuel average with a.c ... is this possible????
