    No problem. It will go with ease. Just check tyre pressure and clean filters before leaving. Happy travelling

    If u are thinking that our car is in more bad condition then to prevent any accidental situation change it's engine oil and air filter oil filter and for more performance fuel your car 50 percent with hi octane

    Many Thanks brothers

    Answers to your questions.

    Breaks was changed 3 months ago, front and back.
    Sure, I will change oil filter, and air filter. and also tyre air pressure

    So you guys saying it will be OK, to go Murree in Feb, especially in snow falling. NO Issue, right?

    Thanks again.

    Driving in snow isn't that hard. The track is already made by other vehicles.

    Driven on snow tracks and snow on main road in Suzuki khyber, 2.0D 1999 and civic exi without any problems.

    Keep speed 30kmph.
    Allow distance for braking.
    Try to keep one side of wheels where snow is less or non existent on road for better traction and grip.

    DONOT move the car when tyres start spinning. The car won't go further and will sink in deeper or slip badly.

    If you are on an incline, let the car roll back or reverse to a spot where snow is less for traction and grip. Put in D and use momentum after gains some speed to move ahead.

    If the side of your car e.g door touches snow on rock or wall covered with snow or grazes against it, the body won't be damaged. I was going on a incline in a narrow street and the left doors of civic hit snow covered wall but there no dents, nothing. Speed 45kmph.2nd gear.

    If your car doesn't climb a snowy road or slippery road incline, make 2-3 guys sit on bonnet. Should do the job.

    Keep hand brake handy but never exceed 40kmph.

    Goodluck

    Thank you GreenBeret, you have given best answer.

    I drive car in "D" and I was thinking "S" will be used for up hill driving. Can you let me know about gear options?

    "S" for sport or up hill
    "D" for normal drive
    "B" for breaking to go down hill

    is that correct?

    Use b when climbing steep slopes , other wise s , dun use d in hills as vitz is v underpowered and ur cvt gear will heat up !
    In snow drive only in b !

    Dont break ur motion , as it needs quite struggle to gather motion on a cvt 1kr
