    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!!!

    Driving a CVT is not fun at all, Theirs no pickup when you need it, The engine sound is too much, But it can take lead in a drag with its counterpart auto tranies.

    Over all the car is a whole lot better then the 99-04 ones, But thoose cars were better built, My 02 was a fresh import car, This one was imported/Registered in 2010, I purchased it 3 months ago, Pakistani people dont keep cars nicely.

    I had to spend a couple of thousand to get it into shape, When i bought it, It was giving around 9.5km/L Now its giving me 12++ as an average, ive managed 13.6~13.7 km/L.

    -The car goes upto 100-140 easily,
    -No vibration,
    -No struggling,
    -Its alot roomier,
    -More space,
    -More storage spaces, (3 dashboards)
    -Alot more comfortable seats,
    -Driving position is alot better.
    -The rear seat is recline able,
    -The meter position and viewing for driver is better in 99-04 (this one has glare and is in extreme centre driver cant see it comfortably).
    -Toyota has saved costs on making this car, But their isnt any noisy plastics, and maintains Toyota standards.
    -Driving the 99-04 is still more fun, But that car takes more time 0-80km/h.
    -I can confidently say that 99-04 Vitz is a mini Corolla Indus in all aspects (its a lakker hazam pathar hazam car).
    -With the new one its been 3 months, Im getting used to it. But buying another Vitz wasnt a bad option at all, looks good, and is alot spacious.

    The fuel efficiency is great, Being a Toyota and being avalible in Asian markets particularly China/Taiwan & Dubai parts are no problem at all, In Karachi atleast Toyota delers (spare part dealers) are importing all spares.

    But to be at the safe side, Ask your registration agent what documents would he need, That is the saffest option.

    Well this is Indeed a Very Comprehensive Review Appreciate it Thanks.

Bit of Scared though since i found this 2004 after a Very Hard Search.Let see what i find now !! Thanks again .

    The sound isn't of the engine actualy its off the cvt, 1000cc passo uses the same engine, the low pickup is because of its biggersize, electronic throttle and cvt transmission, finding a used cat of choice is tough, took me 3 months.

    Passo can be a better option price wise, but I'm not sure about its parts avalibilty in the long run

    Guys who from is using Vitz 2008 1.0 ?

    Let me know what is your fuel average ? And do tell me how do you calculate it ? What is the Hi Octane/ Supreme ratio ? Tire Size as well (What if the tire is not stock profile)

    My car is giving in my 10-11 Km/L in Islamabad city without AC. and all i drove was from Sector G6 to Airport in night after 12 am when whole Islamabad is sleeping. With very light foot. not more than 100 km/h speed. Besides my car has an extra ECO function. The car goes on battery when you stop on signal or somewhere, and starts without effecting the lights, music system

    My tire size is 185/70/14. Which is wider than the orignal size of Vitz 20 mm.

    Denso Spark Plugs. Silver tip.
    Air filter is clean.
    CAT removed.
    Checked the computer, all sensor codes are fine.
    Throttle cleaned.

    Gear Oil i did not changed, because its fine according to the mechnicmy car geniune meter was 60,000 km when it came from Japan.

    So kindly assist me. Specially if someone is from Islamabad !

    Some Vitz users are saying it should give atleast 13 km/L WITH AC in city like islamabad. While some says the new Vitz will just give 11km/L.

    I dont know what to do When everyone is giving me inaccurate readings on mileage issue. -

    ^ What specifit model plugs are you using? (model number) recomended ones are Denso Iridiums SK20HR11, 10 km/L is a low fuel average atleast with the ECO car its not good.

    -Im managing to do 12ish with A/C The worst average ive got is 10.8 km/L with A/C, The best was 13.66 km/L without A/C.

    -What engine oil are you using?

    -To calculate fuel average, You have to divide driven kilometers with fuel added, for instance you reached the petrol pump at 498km you refilled the car upto 36 liters.

    Now divide 498/36= 13.83 km/L is your fuel average.

    Dont expect the car to give to more then 12-13 if your driving in traffic and rough, And you need to get used to driving a CVT, If you just step on the accelerator its going no where, It would just eat more fuel, It increase the speed when it feels like, It just doesnt shoots up.

    BTW why did you remove the CAT convertor if your cars just 60,000 km driven? and btw their are 2 CAT convertors in this car.
    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.

    Well i do not know what is the plug number. All i know is that i bought DENSO Iridiums.
    You know the weather of Islamabad is chilled even now, the car is with me from last 3 weeks, so i never turned on the AC.

    I am calculating by turning the TRIP A to ZERO while i am filling my fuel tank and then i divide the total mileage with the litres i fill. Just the way you told me.

    Frist line drops around 76, Second drops around 41 and so on. So its not going above 440 Km in 36 litres of Fuel (in which 8 Litre is HI-Ocataine)

    440 Km with my driving style is very with very light foot, on the roads of Islamabad at Night (Without AC), when there is no traffic is very less.

    Pakistani assembled 1.3 Corolla is giving me more than that


    Now i was told that CAT should be removed it might be cloged or something, no one told me even the mechanic that there is another CAT :@

    Trust me dude, if this car gives me in Islamabad city 13.88 With AC, i dont want anything more than that. But the fact is that my driving is style is very calm and its just like Highway and its not giving me more than 11.4 Without AC.

    And i press Gas pedal like 10 %. I mean if any one sitting in the car, wont even listen the GENERATOR type sound of new VITZ if the windows are closed. Lols



    And my Tire is not stock profile, my tire size is 185/70/14. This tire is 20mm wider than Stock tire. (I asked many tire sellers, they said if you are looking for fuel average then it has nothing to do with the tire which is 20 mm wider.)

    So basically i am stucked, dont know what to do.

    Because the day i ON my AC in summer my average will drop 2 KM per litre. and it will be 9 km/L.

    Anyone having new Vitz will start hating Vitz with that kind of average

    So anyone on Pakwheels, who got Vitz 2008, 1.0 Assist me what to do.

    Thanks.

    Try getting your cars engine oil changed to caltex 5-40 fully synthetic, if you want a sasta solution put it caltex 10-30, get genuine air and oil filters, get you sparkplugs checked if they are of the specified number or not, check your cars tire pressure make sure they are 30 or 32, low pressure woukd cause drag and increase consumption,

    Thanks.....
    For better performance, better economy and longevity of engine life: STICK TO MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDED OIL GRADE/VISCOSITY Specifications. As you correctly mentioned 5W-30 is the magic number as per vitz owner's manual. Now that you know the correct specs, hunt for reliable brands of oil and purchase it from reliable vendor...good luck.
    ..........
    NOTE:

    CVT or conventional A/T or M/T, has got little or nothing to do with the choice of engine oil.

    Tire pressure seems okay, But i keep it same in all tires, CVT oil is Toyota CVT avalible in a Toyota can of 4 Liters, Engine oil you can get 5-40 Caltex fully synthetic, I guess its an imported product might not be avalible at Caltex pumps but still try it.
    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.

    What is 5-40 ?

    Do you use the same oil you mentioned ? And if its Caltex oil and i dont find on Caltex pump then where i will get it ?

    I found Vitz user manuals online, my car came without one.

    Manual says Toyota Oil. 5W-30
