    1. I havn't really found a negative side to the vitz yet
    2. Auto is great, so ar it's reliable and shifts just when you want it to (very smooth)
    3. Parts are not a problem, i just recieved a box of shocks and brakes for the vitz and it only set me back 16000 (toyota ISB wanted 11000 per shock)
    4. Gives a very good average when my wife drives it, but only around 10 when i drive it (both with A/C).
    5. Yes it can but it is already a very economical car to run so there isn't really much point
    6. I have never driven a CNG Vitz so i cannot comment.
    7. Always buy the newest model possible with the most "toys"
    8. the used car market has now reached saturation point so prices (and resale) are dropping.
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    Hello!
    its doing fine so far in Khi market....
    Before buying anyone of those...Make Sure all sensors are working properly........Vitz only messes when one of the sensor is bad...and also check for any strange mark on Dash where Meter is installed bcz its also some vitz which are converted from analog to Digital........or digital to analog..make sure all things are working properly....better ask from some pplz who actually import their own.......
    rest is all fine...better than all 1000cc cars till now...
    Thanxxx

    @khashraf
    around 79k (original - not had the meter put back/forward)

    @punk
    No idea

    @SER_GTR
    You are right, i had my O2 sensor changed before purchase because the car had an idle problem, replaced in KHI very cheaply.

    @zwk35
    when Local car manufacturers offer current models with decent build quality and all of the safety options as standard, at a realistic price, i'll indeed buy a local car. untill then I (personally) refuse to buy a local manufactured car for my family.

    I've never really cared about resale because usually when a car gets old from our personal fleet we just hand them down to the office staff (office maintains them then).

    Vitz is losing it's resale because 99.9% of them are tampered cars (meters put back etc) and when problems arrise they are usually going to cost alot of money to fix. That's why i jumped all over the car i bought because it wasn't tampered with.

    @Alta
    Thanks for finding it for me buddy.

    @SER_GTR
    No doubt it's going to be routine for vitz to have problems around 80000km, sadly most people will never know when that is because their cars have had their meters put back... and they are too busy living in a fools paradise (example - "1999 model and only 12000 driven")

    rear shocks cause problems as in any other car if u put a 50-55 Kg cylinder in it! i have heard Vitz owners complaining that the car touches the road when passing a speed breaker, especially when there is family in the car... however this can be resolved easliy by either replacing the springs or heightening them up! but parts are a bit expensive as compared to local Toyotas

    Need Urgent Help:

    A few days back while driving an automatic vitz, I pressed the brake very hard with my left leg while pressing it softly with the right leg all at the same time. All due to my habbit of driving a manual car, where I usually press the clutch when I have to stop the car on a side.

    This sudden jerk did not have any problem, but that the orange engine light has been turned on ever since. I feel very bad, since it was a friend's car so pls help.
