    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!!!

    Take it to a mechanic, I'm not sure where though. Maybe someone here will be able to guide you to a mechanic with experience in removing CAT converters on Vitz.

    They can then check it and if your CAT converter is blocked it could be the one causing a heavy load on your engine. It will then have to be removed.

    Price depends on the condition. Good condition should be available around 430k. I would advise getting the car for a day or atleast few hours to test drive. Show to atleast one mechanic and a good denter (a major body repair is a bad sign). Try to make sure mileage is not tampered - buy from someone u know or trust. 8-9k km per year is realistic. Less or more, both should avoided. Check the shifting if it's auto transmission - in all sorts of driving (easy plus hard). Listen for any unusual sounds especially the suspension. Push down the car on all four corners one by one to see the shock absorber response. It should be reasonably hard and not bounce. Steering should be perfect without any slack (wheels should turn on slight turn of the steering wheel). Confirm ABS is fine by braking hard once - you should feel the vibration in the brake pedal and car should not skid. Make sure the car's isn't leaking any fluid. Fluids will also tell you whether the car is well maintained or not. All should be topped up. ATF can also tell if there is something wrong with the transmission. It should be clear... and have this strange fruity smell on a running hot engine. Neither should it smell of burns nor should it be dark (brown or black). A drop of it should be fully absorbed by a tissue paper! Engine should start easily (within a second of starting ignition). In some vitz, the engine sound is a bit more which ofcourse should be avoided.


    @sqahar

    regarding the 2nd issue, there are many things which can have this effect (in order of difficulty and probability): air filter, engine oil and filter, MAF sensor, cat converter and fuel filter. in some cars, the fuel pump also gave such issues - not sure about vitz though. goodluck!

    Welcome aboard friend, We wish you a safe and happy ride both on PakWheels and on your new ride...
    Just from the looks of your car, I doubt if it is 2002 Model, please get it checked, cuz according to my uunderstanding it is 1999-2001 lights and everything.
    @DreamGirl
    There is one Modern Autos at near the end of Montegomry Road going from the Duty Free Shop, ,they are the experts in Shocks and Packing for Vitz. I have had my two Vitz done from them and absolutely no issues, and they are quite cheap too, You can give my refrerence as well if needed. Jameel told me about your visit and whatever fixes he did to your ride... How is the experience so far?
    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

    thanks buddy, will be sad to see the car go but it is pointless to keep it as it has been replaced and nobody will use it. i'll be right here if ever needed.

    @dreamgirl
    yes packing is pretty much your only solution if you wish to stick to your original suspension. i have heard from many that corolla spirngs fit but i'll not suggest it unless you get the ratings checkd and see if they are compatible to your cars setup.

    ideally you shoudl look for springs with the same diameter and number of coils, just ensure that the coils are slightly thicker (maybe 1mm more) and your problem should be solved. I can't comment further on the roll asprings without comparing them directly with the vitz springs face to face. either way by fitting CNG to yoru car it has compressed your suspension and somehow you'll need a solution.

    what "packing" do you have in your car at the moment?

    perhaps LOGAS has a solution for you.

    @disisfifty
    congras on the purchase. any idea what that handle on the boot lid is for? i've always wondered as it makes the vitz look like a suitcase for no apparent reason/function.
