    Default how to drive vitz in Muree?

    In Toyota Vitz AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION what is the function of '2' and 'L'?
    Also tell me difference between the two modes. Because when I drove the car in these two modes I felt no difference in driving.

    Few days ago I went to Muree, while going up in Muree the car showed its worst performance as the transmission was not able to decide which gear to choose continuously it was shifting up and down.I even switched off the o/d but still I have to press the accelerator pretty hard to make the car over take another car?
    Please give me some tips how I can make the performance of the car better in such conditions?

    this has been discussed in the vitz owners club a number of times.

    L - stays in 1st
    2 - 1st and 2nd
    OD off - 3rd, 2nd & 1st
    OD on - all 4 gears

    use L to come down steep slopes
    use 2 to go uphill and downhill
    turn off OD generall while driving in the hills as you will NOT need 4th gear up there.

    "2" means the car will only have upto 2 gears at max
    and "L" means the car will be having upto 1gera at max( not sure on this one though)

    In manual when we have to go for sudden acceleration,we go for downshifting e.g. if we are going at 50km/hr at 4th gear and we need to speed up suddenly,we downshift to 3rd or 2nd gear.there is a sudden increase in the speed of the car i.e. the car accelerates quickly than it was doing before.

    In automatic you will be usually driving on D.If you need to increase speed in order to overtake someone or to negotitate a steep upward slope, you go for shifting from D to either 2 or L.
    In Honda cars there is an option known as "D3" which implies the car will be having a maximum of 3 gears when it is switched from "D4" to "D3"

    I guess storm explained it quiet good.
    When injustice becomes law, rebellion becomes duty. Kill few become a murderer, Kill more become a conqueror. It's not about the money. It's about the money. Remember everything, forgive nothing.

    "how to drive vitz in Muree?"





    with one leg folded like the rickshaw driver





    on the serious note






    the guy has a problem going uphilll not downhill if u read the topic





    1) go uphill on petrol not cng


    2) remove any air blockages done for cng


    3)mixing a bit hi octane might help


    4)dont over load such a small auto car transmission might damage with gear hunting


    5)keep ur car tunned and set on petrol
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....
