    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!!!

    Hi!, I have a 2001 Vitz, Auto Trans, And It is going very well with no problems at all but i hate one thing about it, It is hard to Maintain 120kph on Motorway, Is it the same case will all vitz or just some problem with mine. With O/D on, It reaches 130 on down slope, but when the car is climbing up, the the speed reduces to something like 90 or 100. depending on the Slope.

    your car on CNG or petrol.. not sure about CNG..but i have heard its hard to go over 120 on CNG but on petrol it should hit 170+ easily as i have seen meters of few vitz owners firing upto 170+

    i have fol questions for you
    1. does the tyre touch the inner body or any other part?
    2. do you get a smooth ride on bumpy roads? i mean what about broken roads outside the city?
    3. have you raised the car from its original settings?
    4. does it have any effect on the axles or wheel bearings?

    First of all, belated eid mubarak to everyone!

    @DreamGirl

    Only use Toyota's T-IV for vitz transmission (not T-II which is used for corollas here). Btw, atf should be changed after like 40k kms or if there's something wrong in the fluid. If your atf is looking fine, then better change when u do 80k. Most probably it's been changed at 40k!

    @tyrone_40

    According to my experience, no need to use Hi Octane or mixture in vitz.

    And I'm using ZIC A (not A+) - pretty satisfied by it. The fuel consumption has also decreased a bit. If the car was new brand, I might have used a more expensive oil - but as they say, once an engine is used to a particular oil... don't change it to something drastically different!

    @WaqasMK

    Dude, this is a common issue. Don't worry much. The speed ratios of auto trans are not the same as compared to a manual transmission (O/D is almost like the 5th gear in manual transmission). What I did notice was that after getting a new oil (Zic A) and filter, this issue was much reduced - so car was easily hitting 140 on level roads. And yes, fuel (cng or petrol) matters a lot at high speeds. My top so far has been almost 130 (on cng, after crossing 120 with o/d off) and 162 (on petrol) - then I stopped trying more!

    @all

    Regarding tyres and wheels... I am with @storm on this. Manufacturer's recommended sizes are generally best for all purposes - unless u really know what you're doing. Low profiles will definitely be less comfy. And overall bigger sizes will definitely result in slower pick. Plus, the obvious problem of getting incorrect mileage and speed! And the more you load up your car (e.g. 4 or 5 ppl) u'll feel like towing a truck!

    @amozip

    Thanks for the informative reply. Just a few qs.

    1. Since I dont know if the atf has been changed at 40k, how do I check if its ok and doesnt need to be replaced as my car has done 68k?

    2. I will use Zic from now onwards but since I recently changed the oil and used the Shell (Yellow can) is that ok for now as the engine oil looked like it needed to be changed? Besides, how do I know which oil my engine is used as u said not to change to anything drastic?

    I would apprecaite if you can clear up these questions for me. Thanks once again.

    Tyrone

    @amoizp: Dude, I also got something to ask you!

    What's this O/D? There is a lot of confusion about O/D (overdrive). I believe I was told that by switching your car to O/D you get more acceleration (because the car shifts to one lower gear) and thus your car runs faster but uses more fuel.

    On the other hand on some other forum, I read that it's like a fourth gear. By switching on the O/D you tell the car to switch to 4th gear when you hit a certain speed and that can result in better fuel economy.

    I am so damn confused bhaiyon! I need some info on this! :s

    @zeeshansyed

    Ur second point is wat I believe is the correct answer. I think when going up/down slopes etc u can switch off O/D otherwise let it remain on for fuel economy.

    This is what a VITZ owner and car enthusiast told me on my FACEBOOK profile.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Over drive is just a way to inject more fuel via your carburetor into your engine. That and then more intake of air (oxygen) this in turn will have a bigger & hotter spark in your engine thus producing more energy which gives your car a boost which in turn drives it faster.

    Simply put, if you turn the OverDrive on, you use more fuel but get better acceleration. You might remember I demonstrated this to you and Sabs while we were coming back from that BBQ place next to the DHA golf club.

    Ok Let us make it simple: When you are in the OD mode, i.e. when the O/D is ON... what you get is a smoother ride at high speeds, in other words your car produces more output/power than the input. To understand the concept, imagine a heavy coin you roll and a light coin you roll on the floor with same speeds, which will go farther? The heavier one ofcourse, reason is the torque. The same happens here, your car is par with the intial frictions, so it takes lesser power for it to maitain higher speed. and its more fuel effieint. But when you need an urgent acceleration, it might lessen that a little bit. For that you turn it off for some time and turn it on again.
    But you will notice the difference only at higher speeds, the reason as I discussed earlier is torque.
    I am really not sure if you understood it well or even the previous understanding is gone as well Maybe I am not able to make you understand, and in that case, other senior members... helpppppppppppppppppppppp please

    @all

    Have u noticed the blue light on the dashboard when you switch on your ignition? It usually goes off after a couple of minutes. Do u have to wait for it to go off before driving? Never had this on previous cars so I was just wondering.
