    Well i m very shocked that people here claiming that VITZ AUTOMATIC runs like 1.5L car ON CNG.

    It is very very slow in AUTOMATIC.

    Thats one out of hell.

    I drove 1.5 City STEERMATIC. It is really one of its kind and very fast. Even Vitz manual can't compete it.

    Steermatic VTEC 1.5 is vastly overpowered car with excellent acceleration and top speed, but you dont buy these cars for racing, they are meant to perform other functions, therefore city 1.5 VTEC has a terrible resale in Pakistan

    I have a 1.0L (auto) Vitz and i raced a city (manual) 1.3L and up till 120km/h (traffic) it was no match i was always about 3-4 cars ahead. It wasn't a 1-off race, we dragged all the way from Zero point till just before the airtport, every traffic light and time and time agiain i'd spank him.

    I think a 1.5 (manual/auto) city could win against a vitz (auto) but NOT the 1.3 (manual/auto).

    hi
    i bought a 2003 vitz some 20 days back from capital car deals in islamabad for 6.5 .. its the full option model without the navigation.. i also called altamash but his prices were higher .. anyway thats off the topic
    i bought it and had a tune up the very next day.
    i changed the oil,oil filter,air filer,fuel filter ,the front disc brakes and the rear shoes. also changed the gear oil,spark plugs.. found out the basic maintenence parts are not expensive at all.
    ive had two fuel fill ups since,both around rs 2,000 and ive got 500+ kms,close to 600 infact.both the times within the city and some kms with the ac on + ive had it floored most of the time
    i initially did have plans of cng`ing it but after getting such good fuel consumption,ive decided against it.
    its a great car , it really does go .. it surprises me everytime i flooer it .. for a 1000cc auto,it really does pack a punch!
    though,while i was i was in the market searching for a vitz,i came across some of the crappiest vitz ,its really hard to find a good vitz .. what they do is,find a crappy vitz in japan,costs them less then bring it to pakistan and have it cleaned inside out .. so be careful when you buy one

    Thora aur search karo phir bhet kar!

    European Car Of The Year 2000 - Toyota Yaris (a.k.a. Vitz)

    Japanese Car Of The Year 2000 - Toyota Vitz (same car as above)

    Swift or Reno hasnt had that kind of awards.

    Have look at a DECENT condition, or brand new Vitz. You should know better after doing so much net research that who gets more awards for reliability, Suzuki or Toyota.

    @haseeb
    you are very lucky to find a good car/deal at capital car deals,.. they are a bunch of crooks. still congrats on the purchase buddy (Y)

    As for your parts problem i'd suggest you contact altamash and he'll forwrd you a number of a good parts supplier in KHI, alternatively you can wait for one of the LHR members to post up some numbers of parts stockists in LHR as well. Waterbody shouldn't be a problem for the 1SZ-FE engine.

    Hopefully FLI_GTi might be able to come up with an alternative as well.

    @shqasmi
    Sajid you are 17 and are calling ME "beta"? Here's some free advice for you, I'm also from KHI & i know what kind of message you were attempting to convey when saying that, wait till your b@lls drop before you try doing that again....

    I also make drag race between 1.3 city and SANTRO CLUB.

    And believe me there is no difference at the speed of 80.

    Actually Honda's IDSI in not for performance, it is for economy. At the same time CITY is the most fuel efficient car in 1.3L but slowest in 1.3L category.

    If u hav an AUTOMATIC VITZ. Why don't we make a DRAG RACE between SANTRO and VITZ.

    U must be DAMN SURE that 1.5 VTEC STEERMATIC can easily smoke VITZ. No match for it.

    But manual VITZ can compete even with XLi. Believe me.

    Also i did smoke AUTOMATIC VITZ from my SANTRO 3 times.

    It is not ur name. It is ur nick on PAKWHEELS. It doesn't matter alot if anyone ( such as u4usman4u ) spells ur name wrong.


    Also i m pretty DAMN sure that a 1000 CC PAKI car can smoke Automatic VITZ.

    But the case is different with MANUAL VITZ.
    MANUAL VITZ can EAT XLi.

    We can do the practical if u r interested.

    DIL PE NAHI LE GAYA yaar !

    I was just telling.

    For RACE, i already had race with Automatic VITZ 3 times.

    As i seen for AUTOMATIC VITZ, after the speed of 80 when shifting the gear from 2nd to 3rd then VITZ was then no more because the 4th gear quickly hits.

    There is not much difference in acceleration of manual and auto VItz, if you dont believe me check the internet, it is just the way auto driver handles his Vitz. Here are some points for someone to drag auto Vitz with any car:

    1. Swith O/D off
    2. Put the car in L mode and go when ordered (floor the pedaL)
    3. Change to 2 mode at about 40 Kmh
    4. At about 90 Change to D, dont lift the pedal off the floor through out!!!

    Then you will see how can a santro beat a Viz auto.

    there are over 27,000 members here at pakwheels and most of them(apparently) think/claim that auto vitz is faster than cultus/santro.

    It is my open challenge to all vitz owners. Come have a friendly drag with me to decide which 1.0 car performs better. more than 27,000 members....kisi kay pass to ho ge vitz lahore mein?

    Instead of talking endlessly here come to road and lets finish this matter out. If you say your vitz can eat Xli then I say my cultus can eat a vti. Already a member here says that his stock cultus can do 0-100 in 11 secs. Lekin jab agalay banday ko kaho kay ao race karo to koi nahi samnay ata, aura bahanay shuruh ho jatay hain.

    Lets finish the vitz vs cultus/santro performance issue once and for all!
    I am in lahore and throwing an open challenge to all vitz/platz owners. Lets drag!

    @Deloy, Bhai jaan, these are old cars, they ll Burn their Transmission, these guys dont even know to change Transmission oil of Automatics on Regular basis.

    By the Way Automatics are not for Racing and they are slow in initial acceleration.
