    Default Need help in buying Toyota Vitz

    Hi!

    I live in Abbottabad and planning to buy Toyota Vitz. I have few concern in mind if you can help me with that.

    As Abbottabad/Maneshra and places further and Galiyat side is hilly places. Driving automatic car will not provide you the best like you get in manual car. Specially when they say that use lower gear while going up and coming down. Not sure if there is some option in Vitz as if coming down it will speed as you are coming down so its not good to use to much brake as it will heat up the brake.

    Second about spare parts. Now in Abbottabad there is Toyota centre but how much is the spare cost difference in comparision with suzuki and the availability of spare parts in small market like Abbottabad.

    Will there any price difference if you buy car from Karachi as its a big market in comparision with Abbottabad.

    I read that to buy imported car just check the Grade report (some similar report ) and it should be 4.5. Also read that still look for more as ppl import the cars and repair them in Karachi. So if the report says its good class still we have to look for exterior that its not repaired and also engine and gear box.

    The main concern in automatic car is gear box. How we should look for it before buying.

    I guess I have asked too much and may ask more but if you guys can help .

    Thanks

    You can do the same with a Passo

    since both cars use the same engines

    wassalaam
    My trusted mechanic also suggested me this solution but i got a qoute of around 100k. If you want to swap engine, you should change the gear box and computer with it as well. Only changing an engine won't be a good option.

    Otherwise it would remain the same

    Get swift. Better road grip, strong engine, local cheap parts and a younger model.. Vitz is underpower.. Or if you can get a 1.3 cc vitz, forget swift! Equation is simple 😜😬

    @m_umairr...not sure about 1.0L but 1.3L has superb torque and I personally experienced it in Ustore valley for 4 person on board and according to my friend who owns 2.OD, vitz was climbing better on margalla hills, i even dead stop it on the most 2-3 different upstream turnings and it went from there like a charm with Aircon ON...i shared my 1st ever experience with vitz in an other thread "Plz sort out my vitz problems***...do check it out

    Just thinking about local automatic swift. The reason is low spare parts cost.
    Can anyone tell about the spare parts cost difference between local swift and vitz?
