    Default Expected Damage to vitz 2011

    I bought vitz 2011. My first automatic car before it i keep my hand clean using bolan. Well matter is today i bring my vitz to baldia town karachi and around some 10 to 12 time my car touched and scratched on the speedbreakers (feeling so bad and sad)

    Any one can please let me know how much damage could be happen? should i bring my car to toyota service center for checkup?

    and what i should do? did i buy new big tyres or shocker thing?

    no need to take these things so serious
    under every car there is a protection sheet
    just keep in mind gari thori tehri ker k guzara karay
    and don't ever put spacers in suspension you will regret your decision
    you can go for bigger wheels
    rest senior members will guide you

    My Car hits it all the time, no need to worry, its common in Jdm's best to avoid it is to drive over the speed breaker very slowly

    This problem always occurs in my Prius specially when there are passengers on the rear seat in the areas where speedbumps are like small mountains. Best approach is to fully stop, turn the car at an angle with the speedbump so that only one wheel climbs on it first, then slowly counter steer and since your car is an auto keep on tapping the brake pedal until you cross that speedbump. Some are so high though that even from this method the car slightly brushes the speedbump.

    Well may vary car to car but mostly it is designed to bear such damages to a limit. Thinking of any consequences may be scratched under carriage paint, or fuel lines may break I if they are not in proper place.

    Imported cars are made to be driven on roads that are smooth as silk and we in Pakistan do off roading every day with our vehicles!

    You Don't need to worry! i know the speed breakers in Baldia are sick crazy car breakers but at max the damage to the car will be some scratches on the floorboard and other plastic stuff and protectors under the car! don't worry at all! and don't get ur suspension height adjusted it will ruin the car and it will start rattling after some time!

    Take car drive safe!

    You don't need to worry about damage. This happens on daily basis for me, but it should be avoid. The only thing you need to check is your fuel tank otherwise you may loose your fuel its very important. Anyway what I think is you can put spacer through a good dealer, this is what I did to my honda civic vti oriel pros and after a year you need to have maintenance of your jumps, rest old pw can guide you well.
    Drive safe and slow on jumps !!

    Thank you brothers for all your info. I seen took my phone and taken pics from under i seen from side of the card there are some flat metal they get scratched a bit.. silencer etc are safe.. today i again bring the car to same place but this time i chosen 85% good way there are no big jumps.. will figure out renaming 15% way too.

    As i seen many brothers are saying that not to put spacer it will ruin the car. So i am thinking to buy new tryes.. i think a 1.5 or 2" more will make a good difference.. I know this will not fully takecare of this problem but something is better than nothing. If any brother changed their tyres and satisfied so please let me know the size of tyres model etc...

    - bro if you think you are ruining the car by putting spacer in it is the same as replacement to big tyres. It will put extra load to your engine and obviously extra consumption. I think its better to take risk with spacer instead of engine.

    As I said earlier I put spacer in my civic vti oriel and its works perfect for me, you just have to take care while passing through jumps and keep maintenence after a year. Anyway I wish you goodluck. Tc.
