    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!!!

    i think its best to change the belt as it has already done > 31k on odo so it must hv run more in the neutral as well. Oiling is a temporary solution which does nt work always.

    Just wana add one more thing... If the number is not visible then put some oil on that area, that will clarify a bit

This car is not designed to travel 1000's of miles continuously in 50? temp.
    Engine oils are never chosen according to summer or winter but according to the manufacturer recommendation and engine's condition.
    When i bought my Vitz, it was running very smooth and after few days went to Toyota centre to change the oil and tuning+throtle body serviced. They poured 20w50. Very next day when i started the car in the morning, it took a long self start and was vibrating for few seconds. When i was driving it was not running as smooth and was taking longer to reach 80/100kmph. I thought the tuning was not very good and planned to go somewhere else next time. I was out of city and i had driven 4000kms on that oil and went to a workshop to get the engine oil changed. Mechanic recommended 05w30 or 10w30. i chose 10w30 Petron plus. I started the car and pressed the accelerator as usual but to my surprise, there was better response then expected and car was running extremely smooth achieving 100km/h in no time on a light foot. Next morning it was ready to run on a half self start.
    Then i came to know how important the engine oil is not just for engine protection but for smooth drive. Did some research and read the manual and now i'm using Toyota Genuine Motor oil Made in Japan. Its 05w30.
    My experience...
    1. 20w50.
    Poor fuel economy
    Poor Acceleration
    Takes longer and hard foot to achieve 100kmph
    longer self start and kinda missing in the morning

    2. 05w30
    Excellent acceleration
    15.6 kms/ltr in Lahore city with AC on most of the time and 19kms/ltr when i went to Islamabad via Motorway.
    Starts on first or you can say half self.
    Totally agree vid u Bro 4rm personal exp.

    What engine oil are you using? Use any good 05w-30 grade.
    Where do you live? If in Lahore, take it to magic motors in Model town near "Goga naan chanay". They charge very reasonable and have got all the tools and that computer scanner thing too.
    What is the top speed you are achieving?

    There could be many things affecting your fuel consumption.
    When was the last time you got your throttle body cleaned?
    Have you ever used high octane?
    Ever cleaned or replaced spark plugs?
    There are many sensors in this cars and some of them needs cleaning. Have you done that?
    Last but not least get your catalytic converter checked. Mechanic can see it by opening the silencer and check visually if it looks clogged.
    Maybe its time to get your catalytic converter removed or replaced(costs 42000).

    Bro first of all its impossible dat a 2007 model vitz imported in 2012 has just a mileage of 27000.... N of it is so, it wud nt have been send into auction cars...anyways lets nt get into these details....
    Go to some gud efi mechanic.or better to go to toyota authorised (they charge bit higher but have necessary reliable equipments) dealer and get its throttle body cleaned up and sensor check up...there might be few of sensors malfunctioned. If the sensor performance is below 50% it needs immediate replacement.

    My vitz had 34000 on odo when i bought it. 2010 model and imported november 2013. Showroom owner was my classfellow. I asked him if he had reversed the meter, he said he doesn't do it but they are reversed from Japan. He said this car is driven much more than 34000. Few days ago i was cleaning the doors from inside and saw three stickers one above one where the door closes. One at the top had 69400kms and 2nd had 59400kms.
    But as compared to your car, my car is giving me around 15 in city with ac on. It wasn't that smooth when i bought it as it is now.
    One advantage i had with my car is, its cvt oil was already changed recently as the mechanic told me that its colour and smell is like new.
    WHen i first used 5w30 oil fter 20w50, engine was a bit noisy but as the time passed it became soundless and smooth as butter.
    If you are sure its only 27000kms driven then the only problem would be sensors and throttle body cleaning as suggested by ASK4FAIZI. And the best place to do it is Toyota centre.

    Toyota Pakistan is not supposed to service a Vitz.
    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.

    They are thieves...
    Maguc motors Model town is a very good workshop. They charge extremely reasonable and are very expert in what they do.
    I had issue with my brakes and toyota guys said you need to replace brake drums pad leathers etc that will cost 25000.
    I went to Magic motors and they cleaned and serviced all four brakes thoroughly and adjusted them. Charged only 200. Brakes are perfect now. My other friend had some fuel average issues. Toyota said remove catalytic converter, replace sensors, fuel filter and everything will cost around 20000. Went to Magic motors and they charged 1000. His car is giving 15 in city now...
    Its in the same market where Goga naan chanay is.. Its on the main road.
