    most safe car in pakistan is suzuki, mark anything with suzuki it is safest.
    then comes toyota and then honda.
    vitz is from toyota but it is imported like no one ask the imported one when it comes choice between local and imported so same as the case with vitz, only shoqeen and fond of new options people are buying vitz under budget else it is a big flop.

    moving down like kati patang.

    I dont think its a flop. Its one of the most successful cars in 1000 cc in Pakistan and beats any local 1000 cc car. There are many satisfied Vitz owners out there and I'm sure they will tell u how good the car is both in drive, comfort and safety. I have many friends who own Vitz and are very satisfied.

    I dont think Vitz will Hurt Pakistani Enviroment. There Are many other which are Polluting the Sky.


    And About Success. Vitz aka Yaris Doing Very Well in KSA. Vitz is an OKAY car.

    buddy you are mistaken, beating some car is not the point. it is not fast the bullet is, it is who fires. i hope u got my point.

    we have successful car which has good resale, service and easily spares available. vitz lacks in all of them. so it is a big flop here to due to mentality of people. i personally believe vitz is the best car among all 1000cc and even few above. but question is about pakistani market and people trend.
    vitz are for sale and there are hundreds of them which are not being sold. coz people are more conscious about resale then spares. parts are there but expensive while consider other cars of same race and comparatively availale at very few spots.

    both are remarkably poor as compared to other locally manufactured ones.

    Yes the mentality in this country is very strange. Cars that are useless like mehran etc have resale value, whereas good cars like Vitz which dont compromise on safety and have other good features have no resale.

    True parts are expensive and that goes for local cars too in some cases. Take for instance, my side view mirror of Margalla Plus 1998 model was stolen and I got a replacement for 3,600 and some shops in Plaza were even quoting 4,200 and 4,800 coz they are short because according to them its old model :s

    Strange or what!!!!!!!!!

    the main problem is that initially alot of good cars came and the car was a hit, but suddenly alot of "investors" bought junk from japan and sold them here making a huge profit and ripping unsuspecting buyers off which has lead to the car getting a bad name.

    If anyone can get their hands on a good vitz they'll find it trouble fre for a ling time to come. Alot of my friends have them and they are very satisfied.

    I shoudl point out that most cars in ISB (at the dealers) are junk, i've checked them out myself, but a few were actually very good (last checked around 6 months ago)

    I'm sure ppl who bought Vitz could have taken a mechanic and a denter who would easily tell if the car was good or not b4 buying.

    Storm, what do you think. I know altamash is there but what about ppl who dont know about altamash?

    for those who don't have acess to altamash (lol) i think they can have any good mechanic check the car and they should have a decent idea as to the ocndition of the car.

    Biggest problem in PK is that people don't get cars checked before buying them,.. and dealers don't allow it.

    What would be the most important things to check when buying a Vitz aside from the engine condition and body (accident free) which a mechanic and denter can check?

    Suspension? any other?

    I'm asking coz u have some good experience with the car

    main thing i'd suggest you or anyone else should check is that if the car is what it is advertised to be. nowdays alot of 99's are facelifted to look like 2003+ models, also it woudl be a good idea to get the car jacked up and check the underside of it.

    Suspension is usually overlooked in PK on 2nd hand car so it's always good to check it, also very often it's little things like cabin filters missing and fluids which are low etc.

    It's always a good idea to check the plugs of the car as they can tell you alot about the condition of the engine, as can the oil.

    99.99% of the time the transmission fluid is old and that's pretty much acceptable if the car has been driven aroudn 60000km as that is usually when it should be changed anyways.

    best thing to do is to take it out for a drive and then compare it to a similar car which you now is good, and never settle for "yeh ashi hota hai" replies from dealers, it means that they are either trying to make a fool of you or that they don't know what htey are talking about.

    seatbelts are being changed nowdays, the dealers are getting smarter,... there are other places you can look, like the dates stamped into the plastic on most of the injection moulded parts, but they too can be changed.
