    Default Wats up with the Vitz?

    Haven't seen any postings on the Vitz of late. Have people lost interest in this car lately?

    Would like to hear comments regarding any problems in usage, spare parts, engine problems etc from those who have kept the car and used it for some time.

    People like Storm, Deloy maybe still using their cars and will be able to give some feedback.

    no doubt vitz is a good car! and the best car in its class and its price range!, the problem i think is there are jus 2 many vitz'z out there! and thus well atleast i think people are going for diff cars such as i guess a nissan march etc..! well thats what i think ne ways i still see many new vitz'z around overall there has been a change.

    @tyrone_40

    i have recently bought a vitz, 2002 model. i've driven it around 450 km. i got cng installed in it from al-mubarik. initially it worked well with very less drop in engine performance but then after a while there was a huge drop in the performance of the car. i went back to al-mubarik, they fine tuned the kit and now its working quite well. just yesterday it did 97.3 km on 40 kg cylinder (in city + motorway). top speed on motorway was around 120 kph.

    i've found vitz to be a very good car with all the luxury extras and a very smooth ride. local cars are no match for it. as for the spares, i easily found air filter and oil filter. didnt have to search a lot. not sure about rest of the spares since i havent had the need for them yet.

    this is my experience so far. maybe other vitz owners can share their experiences and problems they've faced.

    thanx
    woof! woof!

    Well i did 165 km at SANTRO CLUB GV on MOTORWAY. At that time it was some awful feeling and it can go beyond as the RACE PADEL allows me to PRESS more. Unfortnately my family members didn't allow me to over speed.

    But believe me as the speed is goiong on it can do 180 km also.

    I was at a bank today looking at their car financing sheet
    a couple of 2002 vitz fully loaded were bought(financed by bank, bought by customers) for around 450,000

    and currently vitz has no resale at least not in lahore. I sold a couple of my cars and had chats with dealers and buyers and all of them were of unanimous view kay 'used vitz ko to koi hath he nahi laga raha'

    Man Vitz is a brilliant car its great to drive, But lahori pplz are slow to understand the utility of the car. the name "recondition" let it down because many pplz dont like to have some 2nd hand or reconditioned stuff. otherwise great utility great value of money. if it was brand new at the price of santro i.e about 6.5 Lac. I bet santro will be junk.

    @u4usman4u
    sir i have 2006 model santro exec GV i tried my level best it topped 140 on petrol with very slow acceleration. on a straight road. now dont tell us you reach that mile stone on downslope. my friend with cd70 motobike says that he reach 100 kmph i was amazed i hardly reach 95 with my cd100 motobike after few months i came to know that he reach there on underpass bridge at lahore. your case is looking similar.
    anyway which other cars you drove?

    Its good to see that the vitz is doing well in Karachi and also trouble free as can be seen from the replies. Strange that our ppl would still prefer local cars when there is so much difference in quality, safety etc.


    @MIA
    How much did you get your 2002 model for and what luxury extras do u have?

    LOL!! good reply buddy. It's funny how we've been forced to think of such things as "luxuries" in PK while in the rest of the world manufacturers are fitting them as standard.

    When will the local buying public learn?
