    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!!!

    Just to clear confusion of Transmission Oil change.. i have manual of toyota yaris 2007 which clearly says " Only use Toyota ATF type WS only if theres something goes wrong with the oil, otherwise oil change not required.. first inspection(only inspection) due after 150k kilometers) and one thing more theres no dipsstick for oil level you have to check through check nut..

    Moreover Toyota Type WS.. its not same as Type - IV or any other oil... only use Type Ws if transmission oil change required..

    Manuals are easily availabe over the internet of new vitz model so go through them before any change...

    Guys, need your expert opinion.

    Its been a long time since i advised or posted anything, i have recently moved to Saudi Arabia. I used to have 2003 Vitz in Karachi, having the same love for Vitz i bought 1.5 2010 model here you wont believe what 500cc with 40 hp extra does to this already Good machine

    Neway, i need advice, since the car is new. Alot of people are saying, Dont drive above 60+, some are saying, dont rev 3000+ rpm. Some are saying, dont use AC on till 1000kms, some leave your car on idle for like half a day, it'll waste petrol but then it'll be the same as driving 1000km ? Its really impossible to drive without ac in this already too hot country ..

    Please tell me do's and dont's for a new car, especially if it has any logic/reason. Waiting for you help

    On my vitz 2007 my break suddenly became smooth yesterday, normally break paddle is very hard jsut have to press a little , but suddenly it became very smooth and have to press deeply just like race to stop the car. I was very scared.

    Called some freinds and mechanic, they have to check breaks, but most probably it is the Break oil.

    Just in case if it is breakoil, can anyone please tell me which break oil is recommended for new model vits (2007) ?

    Also if you guys have already experienced this before.

    A side note : However today the break is working fine, strange.

    Got me new tires today Bridgestone 175 / 70 R13. Wider, softer, better grip, and low noise, the perfect combo.

    @netone

    I already have 1.5" spacers installed in my car (got them in after plugging in the cng kit), however now i feel my car's springs have softened up, and the car touches the speed breakers. I too am planning to get my springs replaced. Talked to the mechanic today, and according to him stiffer springs are the only option after spacers. They range from Rs.1200 to Rs.1600 according to him. I will try to survey the market myself tomorrow, hopefully with results.

    and they are called "springs" with the mechanics aswell. updates about the lengths tomorrow.

    wait for more feedback from the guys too.

    @optimum, 175/70r13 is not the perfect match bhae, did u check it some where?? 165/70 maybe is but definetly 175/70 isnt. as this comes in Baleno nd 155/80 in Cultus/Vitz, so i remember checking it out.

    btw which ones did u get, how much did they cost??
    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.
