    Toyota Vitz 2009 Gear Box repair

    YOM 2009 means 10+ years. 80,000 km is highly unlikely otherwise it used as a second car or just used in weekends. Just for your info that, one of my friend sold this 2007 vitz at 145,000 km having no issues in GB. I sold my vitz 2007 at 110,000 km in end 2014 without any issue in GB. Anyway, When did you buy it? How many km's used by you? Do you know about the history of the car? Last CVT oil replacement interval? (age is matter than millage if millage is genuine)

    Clean AF. That also looks dapper. I think we are corrupting our own minds. Might end up switching to aftermarket taillights eventually. 😅

    Vehicle Upgrade

    Hi guys, I'm planning to upgrade to SUV range, where currently i'm driving a B15. my max budget would be 4.5 Mn. Could you advice or suggest best possible options?
  5. Axio 2008 (3 previous owners,silver,x grade,YOR 2011,145000km,3.3M) and Vios new face (2010/2010,wine red,g grade,3 previous owners,121000km, 3.3M) what should i buy?
  6. Hi Guys, I'm planning to to take my ride (CRV-2019, Australian version VTi-L) for its first (1,000KM) service at Staf##rd. The owners manual says either mineral or synthetic of 0w-20 is fine. But I've heard that it's good to go with mineral instead of synthetic for the first service. I don't want to entirely depend on what the agent says/promotes :). Appreciate if fellow CRV owners and experts could share feedback about this + your experience at the agent (Boralesgamuwa). Cheers!

    You didn't mention the Carina GTs. Most of them are now going for a low price, and although they're owned by mostly mature enthusiasts, it's not to say it hasn't been used 'enthusiatically' but that's the whole point right? There's an AT210 (5-speed) for sale with a newly rebuilt 4A-GE blacktop & a handful of mechanical & electronical parts fixed/replaced according to the owner and has an asking price of 1.85 mil. Compared to the Carina GT, the P11 Caminos are kind of rare & thirstier don't you think? The pre-facelift Windy is a design I really love. It's just a starlet underneath that went under the loyalism radar and is truly worth what it is. A ducktail spoiler & some sweet bronze 6-spokes (TE37 replica) rims on it and you got your self a beautiful little fastback-like-hatchback.😌

    This is a very nice potential budget where you're looking at a multitude of 90's cars. Let's talk about your choices - very hard to find EG8s in good condition now cos they've changed hands between wannabe racers and now completely ruined same applies for the Lancers and the EK3's to a lesser extent so you still can find a rare unit in decent condition. If the modding potential is not a big condition you can also consider slightly more 'boring' variants like Mazda 323/Familia - you can get a good specimen for the price range. If hatches are your thing you can consider a Starlet - which I admit is overpriced due to the whole Sri Lankan Toyota Loyalism but a good EP82 is well within budget there's a massive community in SL and parts are aplenty so maintaining one will be a breeze. Corolla2's (windy) Ceres etc all come into the equation. This is something i wanted to suggest as well - The P11 is a true 90's car with the good old Nissan genes and they're not on the boy-racer radar so you can find a really good car... Sticking with Nissans there are Pulsars, Preseas and (lucino - maybe not) If i was on the market for a car at this budget I'd probably go for a Primera honestly. frankly there are too many choices here - so try to go for what you really like (EK3/Lancer CK) keep the Primera's etc as backup options don't stick to one car go and see a few test drive etc...I'd skip the EG8 tho personally 90's cars make my mouth water so I'm looking forward to seeing a thread on what you brought. Good Luck.

    Toyota Vitz 2009 Gear Box repair

    Has the gearbox oil ever been changed?? If people bother to change fluids on time and carry out periodic preventive maintenance then there should be no need to contend with a large repair at such a low mileage Just because the shifting is a little pronounced jumping to a conclusion that the gearbox needs to be repaired is premature and excessive I feel. As @CNX said, have a sound qualified professional at recognized outfit (the agents even) have a look at it. Don't give them ideas saying the gearbox is broken because people will happily try to sell you a reconditioned box with no mileage provenance if they know you're trigger happy and uninitiated.

    Just a suggestion, why not a P11 Primera perhaps? If you can find a 2000cc SR20DE it'll be far sprightlier than a EG or EK Feels more plush as well There were A*W imported brand new ones as well as reconditioned imports - look for a Camino if you're after something which can be construed as something somewhat more "sporty"

    Toyota Vitz 2009 Gear Box repair

    Better get a trusted friend with some experience in vehicles, preferably a vitz with a similar gearbox (I assume CVT) to drive it and see whether it really has a problem. If the car has been properly maintained with timely CVT oil changes, it is unlikely to cause problems at 80k km assuming the milage is genuine. The other option is to take the car to the agents to have a look. Your local 'makabass' may take you for a ride if he gets to know you have no clue so better avoid them.

    Nissan patrol Y60 engine Swap/conversion

    So ultimately you are trying to do all this just for the purpose of using it as a city car. Nissan Patrol Y60 - An SUV that weighs 2.5 tonnes, That 4.2L TD-42 is no where near fuel efficient, back in the day i could remember it only did 4-5 KM/L so now with aged fuel pump and injectors with the worn engine is gonna have surprising low fuel figures. My old land cruiser sahara J100 with the 1HD-FTE had better fuel figures than that. And the shear dimensions of it is gonna make driving around and even parking at a modern supermarket really tough since the margins are set for small kei cars- so good luck with that. Please think twice as using it as a city car because it is going to be an utter waste after everything. specially with the evolution taking place in the SL city car segment, this will merely be an elephant in the room.

    Nissan patrol Y60 engine Swap/conversion

    For that you can straight away swap it with Toyota's 1KZ-TE. it is a complete package when compared to modifying a 5L. 3.0L, Fuel Injected, Turbo-Intercooler. currently in SL market these power some late J70 series box prado, J90 Prado TZ grade, The hiace "Dolphin" Grand cabin - original diesel.

    Toyota Vitz 2009 Gear Box repair

    I am very new to cars. I have a vitz 2009 model and its mileage 80000 Km now. When I drive I can feel the gear changing automatically, so I think its time to a gear box repair. So I need to know whether 80K is the normal gear box repair interval or else. If I change gear box oil and wait until 100K? And how much cost to have a gear box repair?
