    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!!!

    "Netz Sticker showing showing stars & percentage"

    Mostly imported Vitz/Platz have a sticker on the back screen. There are stars, either single, double or tripple and japanese sentences contain figures like, 12 or 17 with percentages 25% and marked as One star or 12 with 50% and marked with two stars or 12 with 75% and marked with triple stars.

    what does this star ratings and percentage means??

    i think the percentage sticker is to signify how much "factory fit" tint there is in the windows as i've only seen this sticker on cars with factory fit tints.

    not 100% sure though.

    @Storm: Thanks for the advice mate. I just realized its the Toyota filters I used "Guard" is a catchy name though! lol

    Dude let me know as soon as you get your hands on a copy of the manual, or what we can do is start learning jap
    There is one thing I would break up over and that is if she caught me with another woman. I wouldn't stand for that!

    U mentioned that using Shell (yellow) oil is ok for vitz but to ensure its genuine. Can you give any advice about how to check if its genuine?

    Thanks

    hash4u mentioned this to me since there is alot of "2 numberi" with shell oils, best thing is to ask one of the pump guys i guess as i don't know any other way of checking at the moment.

    @irfibaig
    as far as i know autos use type 4 (IV) gear transmission fluid.

    @ MudassirRauf
    welcome to the club. well, to me it appears to b ok coz prices had reached this 5Lac mark even prior to budget. congrats on buying this wonderfull car.

    @ all
    just wanted to share some stupidities of mine. one fine night, me with my friends was on long drive. suddenly the fuel bar started blinking. i stopped at a pump, asked the guy to fill tha tank and turned off the engine. after paying the money, when started the car, o damn..it denied starting. paseenay to chhoot gaye. bhai logon ne dhaka lga k side pe ki. kuch ALLAH ko yaad kia, vow...it started. kuch din baad phir aisa he hua, car didnt start. and then i looked at the digital display... it was telling me that car is not neutral. dman it! so this was the problem y my car was not starting. hope u guys wont turn off engine while in gear!!!
    Second time, my sonu decieved me right when i arrived to recieve my mother in law from airport. everybody sat in the car and ****...no current in the car. out of embarassement, i straight away hired a taxi. then i called my big bro. after some effort, it was found that battery connections somehow got loose. i tightened them and sonu started again. i hope everyone would check the connections daily as well.
    MORAL of the story: if ur car doesnt start, check ur battery or gears.

    I have removed the Catalytic Converter. There are many Cylencer shops on the back side of Zoo. There is also Ganga Ram hospital. I dont remember the name of the shop but they will remove the whole DHOLKI and add a new customized DHOLKI. The pick of your car will increase. Its costs me 400 rupees.

    Please tell your cell number so that I can take the Vitz manual from you.
    If you can count your money, you don't have a billion dollars.

    @salman2k960
    Yes, the cars got all the "intelligent" features you can think of! The manual trans version won't start if you haven't pressed the clutch! And the passenger seat belt light won't turn on if there's no passenger sitting... etc. Btw, speaking of features, I just love the opening of the driver door from inside without opening the lock first!! At first this was a small thing, but when driving other cars, I realize how good it is! These japs think of everything!

    @MudassirRauf
    Yes, the price looks good for a "good condition" car. Take good care of it and it won't let you down!

    @all
    Btw, just for info... went from isb to lhr and back (on motorway). It was a good drive. While crossing the salt range, also experienced the car's feature of down-shifting while going DOWN a slope!! I hope this feature is available in all auto-trans cuz it's a life-saver!!

    Also realized another thing... the speed in o/d (4th gear) increases if u keep on going steady... so probably the torque conversion is adjusted according to the drive. This doesn't matter much on petrol as the car computer is probably designed for petrol fuel and takes care of it. But on cng, this makes a lot of difference. So if I change to o/d (4th) around 90-100 kmh, the car won't go more than 110kmh on o/d. But after a minute or two... it'll slowly start climbing and even cross 120! Saw this happening multiple times, even if the road was slightly steep!

    Also, the car performs best (particularly on cng) when the pedal is floored sloooooowly. Might be due to the fuel overflow (or whatever it is called) and/or maybe it might be easier for the central computer to work out everything!
