    Default Vitz 2003 issues

    Aoa PWer's,
    I bought a Vitz 2003 8 months back. I bought it of PW. First of all, the person I bought it from turned out to be a dealer, which I Uncovered afterwards. The car was sold to me as total original except one fender and bumpers. When I brought the mechanic to show him the car, he told me that the car had touchups all around but was not accidental. He said that the car needed new tires and maintainence. I bought the car and brought it here to Lahore and detailed it with all my love. I spent hours on the car. The next day, I very proudly took out the car and asked my dad to take it out instead of our Liana. We left the house with all my family in the car. The A/C stopped working. The gas leaked. I got all that work done for 6000/-
    Next, the engine oil leaked. The car visited the mechanic 4 times for this. It turned out to be a broken seal. Costed a total of 3500/-. Also had the maintainence done. Costed 6300/-. Next changed the tires. Costed 20000/- Then the suspension came along. Costed me around 14k after some discount. (the bill was 19k but I sold the old parts and all). Now I have some new issues:
    1) The cars front makes a 'tung' noise when braking or crossing speed brakers or turning.
    2) The car's average has dropped from 13-14 to 10.
    3) The floor vibrates when the car is accelerating.
    4) The pick has also reduced.

    I need help with these issues. Your valuable feedback is required. I wanted to remove the CAT filter but I'm not aware of the complications and I have a gut feeling that this isn't the issue. Is it useful removing the CAT?

    ***The car also has a noisy interior. it makes alot of noise when crossing bumps. Anyway to fix this?

    NOTE: This thread is not to accuse Pakwheels or anything. I love Pakwheels. This was entirely a misunderstanding. This is just to let people know that cars online aren't always trouble free. People have developed this concept that Cars on Pakwheels are trouble free and sellers are honest. This is not the case. I also won't mention any details of the seller I got my car from as it would cause issues for him. All I can say is looks are ALWAYS decieving.

    AWAITING YOUR REPLY.

    One thing. Never ever get the transmission fluid changed without getting the filter in transmission cleaned. It would be of no use otherwise and the new oil will be a waste.

    Its a used car after all; so minor issues are expected irrespective how you check it.
