  1. Toyota Vitz 2016 2017 till 19 Well I’m not going to get too technical or sound like the fan club here But it’s a long story. Despite being a popular car, it’s a very bland machine, but has its perks Hence they are like the cockroaches of the current car scene. The car is so popular at the moment that I have seen 2 instances unregistered cars were exchanged for money for the market value and for lands, for debts etc. between businessmen as they considered the vitz to be equal to money in the bank. Well as for my Vitz tale, I purchased a car, yes full cash deal, wife went crazy over it, found the mileage was tampered Raised hell, returned the car, cash refunded got another car used it for 3months, saw a better car being imported , exchanged mine a small loss during the whole sales dip this year, got the new car cheap. so lost a few, gained a few. So tasted both waters 2016 and post facelift 2019 So the popular grades in Sri Lanka are the F and Fm being the entry level , not heard of a U grade car, There is a Gr or an Rs here, not sure and a proper Hybrid Yaris from Australia with a known gent The F has a Start stop model, with a pretty led display and rpm gauge Fm has no power Mirrors and has window winders in the back, and no rear wiper Mostly all these are 1000cc 1KR powered Lesson learnt, Do a through check on auction records prior to purchase of a car, I caught my cars issue through the Jevic reading, it had done 88000km, 2 auction sheets one with the altered odo and the other with the real odo, car read 34000 odd km, and boy it looked new, brand new My trusty mechanic couldn’t tell it was run either. Tyres matched blah blah, they played the game well, do note I will not reveal the seller as post conflict he took the car and refunded every cent, only thing I lost there was about a week of my time. So the vitz is a properly beat up car in Japan, so most here are too good to be true, heavily run. Always secondly go for a Toyota Lanka Inspection even if it’s a car off the factory, just to be safe Exterior Well the basic frame and shape has been here since the 2011 model, but is the 1000cc tax cut that made these models common here, it’s a good looking layout true, Personally I feel the 2016 model looked better and the 2017 odd models look like a scary grandma on the front, the rear looks cool, Especially if you got the led package, it looks like an audi, Headlights are either h4 halogen, horrible or the lovely leds with auto dipping and levelling. The styles are different with the years Also the bumpers are far more securely fastened in the 2017 facelift models but still they tend to hang front and rear both after going in our pillaged roads. So for those with that ocd, it’s never ending, I have it and I know, took apart 3 bumpers, the clips are pristine, the bulk of the bumper and humping the pot holes make them warp a few mm, so u have a noticeable panel gap on the sides. The tail gate is very well thought after, they open with like minimal protrusion from the bumper length, maybe 1 foot at most, and doors open very wide, and easily, handles and mirrors are shared across the whole Toyota line. Mirrors are kinda wide for a small car, so they ding up easy. Remember to buy a few extra lights. Interior, again no ,major difference between the 2016 and post facelift model, just a change in colour schemes, grey to gloss black, jewela had the fancy colors The 2015 model the air vents were different, thereafter they landed with axio style propeller like vents, which break very easy, Do note the multifunction wheel buttons are original in the car only if it has the 6 speaker sound system. The swap is very easy, 20min job cost about 10000lkr, but with Chinese parts, the replacement Chinese ribbons last only few 1000km and show airbag lights. Oem parts cost 80000 odd (may vary) the 6 speaker (tweeter) Seats, Nicely contoured, bit hard, bland fabrics, front headrests are sown into the seat bulk up to the f grades, there are many variations on the vitz line, so nothing is certain. Dealer level upgrades and variations as well There is space, even when you are 120kg The double din gap and the steering wheel I find well designed and well placed, giving it a bit of a dynamic vibe, the rest of the dash is like the designer sketched the aqua dashboard in a hurry. The gauge cluster in the f grade is really dated but does it’s thing ok, nothing to be happy there unless you get the f smart stop or a bigger engine. Most cars here do not have climate control, despite it being fossil parts, it works well, keeps the region cool, yes you loose a bit of low end power and ears hurt a bit more. Light colored roof liner, headrests in the rear, typical Toyota stuff. Leg room is ideal for the size, The door cards and dashboard remind you of a plastic dustbin though, they scratch like a lottery and love dust. Cargo area, quite large actually. Can accommodate the luggage of like 4, seats 4 easy, if you go 5 you gotta be closely related and malnourished. Below the cargo deck there is either a useless puncture kit or a space saver wheel, kit varies with car so I suggest a spare wheel. The jack is hidden under the drivers seat, not in the tray, so note that before your curse the fellow who stole the jack during a puncture Engine and drivetrain Yea so the 1000cc agony, no turbo. No isg, just groaning with the cvt box, Well it pulls, after a while, and if you floor it, it can keep up the guy who overtook you for going too slow and showed you the finger, and if you keep flooring it it can shift down and pass him. It’s just slow to respond, but certainly not a crawler, but no race car either. It’s just enough for traffic, feels brisk between 30kmph and 100kmph, thereafter it just sits. It’s the noise, it’s not like this huge engine revving noise, this is like a blown exhaust, leaking cat or a cow giving birth, something, loud and agonizing, the accelerator pedal is very flimsy, no feel, the car responds late to throttle, thereby it’s like asking a question and waiting for an answer. The vibration is more prominent on the 2016 models, the 2017 onwards ones have a completely different gel mount, we ll get to know more as the cars age. They’ve gone really stingy on the sound proofing on the f grade, so it’s like only 50% sound proof thanks to the engine. Cold starts give you the creeps, it’s that noisy, Reminds you of a 90s elf. So in Japan cars come with 0w20 oil, here Toyota recommends 10w30, there’s 5w30 as well so pick your poison, parts are cheap, the oil change costs between 10k to 16k depending on the joint, with genuine parts and synthetic oil. Approx 3.2l You shouldn’t be driving a car if you don’t know the intervals, Tip- almost all new jdm cars have a sticker under the hood, with oil change spec, so start translating oil change costs like 16k, agents can handle and recommended, at 40000km PCV valves get clogged easily, so keep an eye, same goes for the throttle body. So there are many variants of the 1KR engine, this having the 1KR Fe, The competition, Wigo and the Perodua cars have variants, so if interested dive in, https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_KR_engine The drive, The suspension Well this is why this thing sells so much. The handling is really nice, feels a bit like a hot hatch (before you start cursing just the HANDLING) , but there is zero compromise on the comfort, it’s sedan matching comfort in a cheap hatch, in local context that’s my bottom line here. Road noise is very poorly insulated, has the pathetic dying bird horn, Usually the 14 tyres are chunky, so manage to cushion even more, The ground clearance is PATHETIC, so unless careful, it rubs everywhere, a good option is to fit mudflaps, they make a noise so you won’t bottom it out suddenly The front lip is more or less a sacrificial element, or a painters monthly allowance if you are conscious about the car They have had no concern on driveways and steep descents when they sketched that. As I write this, my car has been parked for 2 weeks as they’ve started meddling with the road. It can manage long journeys with comfort if you have a good stereo and if you drive “Normal” Do note road presence is less, so from biker to bus driver, no one gives a damn and tend to abuse you, being the small car slogan now. Turning radius is like a bicycle, so cops will start to smile while they write you up when you do that illegal U turn Fuel economy is like 11kmpl in traffic, my first Vitz did 18kml in the highway, yet to test the new car, 92Oc is specced, Toyota Safety Sense Impressive bit of tech here, extremely intelligent, doesn’t try to kill you, warns many times before braking, lane Change assist, auto wipers and headlights work very well, I’m sure the high beam algorithm was programmed by a very polite Japanese gent as it never sets high beams, even when it’s needed, good stuff. Pointers not to get yourself screwed Carry a spare wheel Do not go off road, steep slopes and avoid bigger potholes, and rocks on the road, you will feel the impact on your groin and pain on the wallet. If you do well you ll need a new sump or a bellhousing Don’t over load the car. Try to upgrade to factory multifunction steering, or don’t 92 is enough Jewela is just a trim level, gaudy with chrome Avoid FM models, they are like lorries, and used for mostly cargo and deliveries all over Mileage is almost always faux, get a personal import or a TL verified car Or just be very very very thorough, jump all the hoops when buying one. And pray it’s a good one. If you need help with auction sheets, ask It may burn a bit of oil after 50000km ish, Use genuine parts. It’s a crazy platform, we get a boring variant, like that cousin who became an accountant when the others are cardiologists, astronauts and rock stars Overall it’s a good car, not that refined, reliable, old time true tested stuff.

    Kia picanto vs toyota vitz

    Given the popularity and roughly falling in the same price range it seems appropriate to have a comparison of the two. Do give your ideas.

    Vitz 2019 jerk when deacceralating

    My vitz 2019 makes litte jerk when deacceralating but not every time and also I noticed breaking with deacceralating it is not happening , furthermore it is not happening when acceralating . Could I know this is general thing in vitz or it is a problem? Thanks
  5. Hi All, My Toyota Vitz KSP130 2015 (YOM) gives an unusual whistle sound when I accelerate. This does not happen always. This happens when I drive for sometime long (2 - 3 hours) continuously or when I drive in the hill country or when on S (Sports) mode. I suspect it's happening when I'm on a low gear or when I accelerate fast. When it starts to come, as I accelerate the whistle sound goes up and when I take off my foot from the pedals it stops. When I'm on S (Sports) mode a burning smell also comes. I don't know these two are related. This is really annoying and need your expert opinion to resolve this. TIA. Cheers Madhawa007
  6. Hi All I have a 3 million lkr budget . I am looking for a car to buy but do not like hatch back cars except vitz. I am hoping to buy within a month but still confused what to buy. Please give me some suggestions with you all's experience Thanks

    Buying a New Vitz

    Thinking of buying a new Vitz with a budget of 3.8 Mn. Should I import the vehicle or purchase from a local car sale? If purchased locally, what are the recommended places? What are the things I should consider ? Thanking you in advance 😊
  8. Hi folks, Recently got down a Toyota Vitz 1.0 2017, and am looking to make it a bit more exciting to drive Can't do anything about the engine of course, but I have heard that you can do suspension & wheels upgrade which can make it far more interesting. I searched the autolanka forums but could not find enough information. So, has anyone done this? What exactly are the benefits of doing it? How much would be the cost and where to get it done? Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi, I have narrowed down three models for the current budget of mine which is below 4.4m They are, Toyota Vitz 2017/18 Suzuki Swift 2017/18 Audi A1 2016/17 My plan is for casual use on weekends and some weekdays. Which would you recommend for overall comfort nd driving. (If I have missed any model please tell me as i am still on research stage).

    What does gear 'B' do?

    I have a toyota Vitz 2017. All the gears I have are P,R,N,D-S,B. I don't know what really the gear 'B' stands for, but i think it means 'Engine break' when going in slopes to avoid using brakes all the time. Problem is I sometimes forget to change gear 'B' to 'D' when I am accelerating after a slope and go some distance without understanding. I only understand it when i feel the engine is not accelerating as it used to. So my questions are, 1.What is really gear 'B' stands for? 2.Did I damage my engine or gear box by accelerating for some distances in gear 'B'? Thank you!

    Prius C vs Vitz

    Hello, Buying a new car with Govt. permit is a challenge this time. Would like opinions from you people whether to buy a Vitz or Prius C. Prius C starts at 3.6 B/New from Toyota. Vitz has a large range. Since my budget is below 4 million, I cannot go for anything larger. Prius C (or Aqua) has tight rear leg room, it seems. And ground clearance is also low. Hybrid resell value is also a challenge. Your views please....

    Vitz safety sense

    My sister owns 2018 Vitz with safety sense for like 6 months. She never have experienced Auto brake in action. I drove that too, sometimes aggressively but i get only brake warnings sometimes. I bought a Grace about a month ago and i had 4 instances of mild auto brake application already (3 times when trying to squeeze through a narrow part of the road with oncoming vehicles and once actually going behind a vehicle) Doesn't the Vitz come with Auto emergency Brakes?
  15. When checking on sales, swift 2017(non safety) and vitz 2018 (safety) both are somewhat in the same price range. what do you think of these two cars? fuel economy, engine quality and performance, build quality, parts prices, interior space, ground clearance, 2nd hand market value and etc.. 😊

    Toyota Vitz

    Hi guys, I'm a new user for this site. I'm using a Toyota Vitz ksp90 2008 with a mileage of 77380km. There is an abnormal sound coming from engine and a vibrating feeling when i put gear into either D or R. It's doesn't always happen with brake, but it's slightly reduced when I turn the a/c off. This does not happen when being driven, at N or P. Spark plugs changed were bought at Toyota Lanka, injectors, throttle body cleaned and air filter changed from a guy at delkanda pola road. But there is no reduction in either of those problems. Can it occur because of a faulty engine mount? Please give your expertise ideas on this and a reliable & reasonable place to sort out this problem I'm from Maharagama
  20. Hi guys in my car its a vitz SCP10 model one. It has a new battery but it not very bright(no good light) at night when on head lamp/dim...I can't imagine what is the problem..can drive at night but only can visible 10-15 meters in front..
  21. With a budget around Rs. 4.2 M which car out of the followings will be better i.e. Vitz 2018 or Fit GP5 2014 or Aqua 2014?? Especially in terms of, - standard of the car - fuel worthiness - maintenance costs (including hybrid battery cost)
  22. What could be the problem if a Toyota vitz push start 2008 model is displaying the following; (a)Hand break alarm even if its released (b)p/s alarm (c)Battery alarm even if the engine is on
  23. I recently purchased a Toyota Vitz 2007 (2008 body) with 67,000km. The previous owner has been using the car for the past 2 years and had not changed transmission fluid. I am wondering whether to change it or not. There is no way of checking the quality of the oil due to the lack of a dipstick in Vitz. On second thought, is the transmission oil not supposed to be changed in this CVT gearbox (I assume it is the sealed type because there is no dipstick)
  24. I drive a 2007 Toyota Vitz and recently started having issues with the engine. When I gas the engine, it does not give me the power I need. I hear the engine rev but the power just isn't there. When I need to overtake another vehicle, I usually put the gear to "S" for that reason and that gives me a little bit of power to over take that vehicle. Also having issues when the vehicle is stopped. When in traffic in a slope, the car goes to reverse if I don't push the gas paddle quick enough. This also happens when I let go of the hand break after it being parked. I have cleaned the injectors and replaced the spark plugs. It was good for sometime but the issues came back. Appreciate some help to know what's going on with the car. And if someone could point me to a place where I can trust and fix these issues, that would be great. Thanks.
  25. Hi everyone, After some time of finding facts, I got my first car (Toyota Vitz 2016/10). Personally imported. It has 12500 km on the odometer. So I thought of getting a service done before put it on the road. Since I am new to cars and stuff, can someone please let me know what to specially look for and replace in the first service. I was told that engine oil has to be changed. What about oil filter, air filter etc...? Thanks...
