    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!!!

    Wanna maintain some softness in my ride aswell, 34 psi is too much. Even in 30 psi the car starts bouncing if you know what i mean

    Khalid please check the air pressure sticker pasted by manufacturer on the front doors (either passenger or driver side) on your car which states the recommended pressures for front and rear tyres. It might be in kPascals. Convert it to psi and compare to what you are maintaining. I don't think we know better than the manufacturer who has built the car.
    Maintaining the recommended pressure by manufacturer shall be ideal for tyre life, braking, control of car and safety.

    Less inflation = better braking , more control , somewhat safer , bad fuel mileage , less tyre life , MORE COMFORT

    Tips that might help (hypermilling works)..
    Turn Eco OFF, it chokes your car.
    Fill your tank with a 70:30 Petrol:HOBC mix.
    Engine oil 5w30 (I use liqui moly)
    Check air filter regularly (Try using leppon, its cheap and very good. Rs.400 as compared to Rs.1500 original. I change it every 2 months even though its "clean")
    Regularly monitor tyre pressure (once a month is enough) I maintain 28psi in my OEM tyre size 165/70/14
    Drive with windows closed and AC on when on open roads, reduces air drag.
    Learn to manage your acceleration pedal. Heavy foot causes loss in power, more fuel loss, nd sluggish acceleration.
    Try not to use brakes alot, keep your eyes open and drive intelligently.
    Try and fill up your car in the early hours of the morning (like fajar) as the fuel is cleaner then due to lesser turbulence in tank.
    Hope it helps bro
    Agreed and liked, but ur air pressure is low yar, maintain 32 psi as per Toyota recommendation
    Never underEstimate anyone. Might be a charade has a v8 in his heart.

    Sir mostly my car is driven with max 2 people.
    And if i fill it up to 30+ psi , it gets a bit bouncy.

    But your point is noted will do that to see if i can get the hang of it.

    Imranbro ,

    I 'm totally agreed with you, and i am used to it now ,Like you said ,35 ,34 psi , One thing more ,i tried to find out ,why company has mentioned such psi ,So i was able to found that ,because of thin tire need maximum air fill ,and weight of car.,
    btw i am enjoying ride at such air pressure ,I even tried 30 ,29 psi ,As told by local hawa wala;s ,but that time my steering get always heavy .

    My fuel consumption is 15/16 km/l in local ,Traffic jam ,On long ,18/19 km/l .

    Actually, every manufacturer has his own recommendations.
    Some keep front less and rear more ( American models). Also, where Diesel engine is used ( on similar model) the air pressure recommendations are different. Also, some specify the pressure with regards to the number of people seated on the rear and luggage in the trunk. But at the end of the day, always follow manufacturer recommendations.

    Bought one 2 months back. The car was only 22k genuine driven as everything was verified. Anyways, the drive of new shape vitz is fantastic. The steering specially is really responsive and makes the car fun to drive then the previous shape vitz. The suspension is much better, car is better sound proof and overall the vehicle is much more spacious then the older vitz.
    My old shape vitz gives mileage around 12 and new shape easily gives 15km/l.

    Well, I think this is true if you're using Company (i.e., Toyota) recommended tire size. I'm using Yokohama Eco 185/70/R14. So should I still go for the company recommended pressure or every tire size has its own recommendation.
    Thanks.

    Every tire size has its own recommendation
    Also every country have its own conditions

    The size you are using is very big.And bigger the tire lesser the air pressures should be.

    I think you should have pressure 28 in front and 26 back.
    Or if you want ecconomy and no comfort.
    30 front 28 back.

    More than 30 psi in pakistan will damage your suspension soon.
