Warning: Buying and Driving a Vitz or Platz in Pakistan

potential car buyers in Pakistan to spend their hard cash on cars imported Japan. The Japanese take care of their cars the locals do, and the climate in Japan is not as on vehicles as the climate of the subcontinent. In cases it is wise to buy cars in other parts of Asia, as you can the quality is higher than manufactured models.

That there are some major you should know if considering a Toyota Vitz or Platz in

Low Clearance

These cars made for city driving in not in Pakistan. Speed bump have some learning to do, as speed bumps are too high or it such a way that they can your car. These two have lower clearance most other vehicles on roads. As a result, they the worst beating from potholes, and generally bad road It is also extremely dangerous to these vehicles in the rainy (July to September), as the low clearance flooding and electrical damage likely. You will also trouble on some of the steeper in big cities.

Driving these cars off the path is certainly not advisable. the stupidest decision I have in my entire life was to drive a Vitz up the Karakoram Highway to It took three days during daylight hours, and the car did not well in landslide zones. Mehrans and Corollas may be able to zip and along on mountain roads, a or a Platz can not.

Not Compatible with CNG

Local will not fit these cars for use Certified Natural Gas (CNG). means you’ll always to drive on petrol which costs ten times as much as This makes these cars very expensive to run for average use. Most expensive city cars, the Honda City, are compatible CNG kits.

Poor Fuel = Pollution Machine

Pakistan’s quality is no where near a Japanese car is used to. Japanese are fitted with catalytic which can only be used unleaded fuel. A lot of fuel in although it may be called unleaded, is not unleaded. Driving your car a catalytic converter and unleaded is like the car slowly committing You absolutely should not drive a or a Platz with a catalytic when fuel quality is Your car will run rougher and get mileage. In order to drive car to performance, you must have the converter removed. This is for the environment and embarrassing if you environment in any way. You can smell your car when you run it without

the catalytic converter.

Spare Parts Insurance

Spare parts for the Vitz or must come directly Japan. That makes very expensive in the market. It is very difficult to insure cars, particularly the Vitz, as find selling a Vitz in to be a profitable trade. Theft for a or a Platz is more likely other more common and the crooks will make the money by gutting it and selling it by piece on the black market. pay a hefty fee for insurance if anyone is to insure you car, and you’ll extra security measures as alarm system and steering

So What?

All in all, we do like our but we certainly would not buy one again in In Japan, yes, we’d to drive one, but in Pakistan just too expensive and inconvenient. We like being big time driving around without our converter, and the price of petrol is rising. Both the Vitz and the are comfortable and well—built, but not for Pakistan’s roads. Do yourself a favor and for a car that is CNG compatible and has parts available in the local market. will cut down on your budget considerably.
