Hi,

I recently purchased a vitz recondition car (unregistered) and would like to know whether I should do the full service (like changing oils and filters) before I start to use it. Is there anything else (major checkup) I should do before using it. expertiese please help me.

Do we really need to change the ATF oil in the first service? :mellow:

For toyota cars, most experts recommend to do the ATF oil change between 35000-40000Km (Toyota ATF Oil). So if this car has done 10000km he can drive another 20000km or 25000km?

Do we really know that the car is low mileage and hasn't had the speedometer adjusted?

The fluid inside the axle housing.

To my knowledge there is no housing at the drving axle. It's one side is connected to gear box and the other side is to the wheel. Which housing you are reffering to?

I'm referring to the differential. Every car has a differential. The set-up depends on whether you have FWD, RWD or 4WD. In this case you would have one differential in the front since this vitz is FWD.

Suggest to do a full Diagnostic test with the agent (TL). It’s bit expensive but worth of doing it @ the initial stage.

Pls tell me a good place for it.I bought a chevy crz(2004)recently and would like to do a such test. I dont want to go to MAG city though. and can somebody predict a cost for it?

Make sure you use Manufacturer Spec. oils - especially for the CVT Gearbox.

Lots of people screw up their newly bought cars by using the wrong oils. Don't believe everything the Service Station guys tell you.

Change the transmission fluid

Change the oil.

Inspect the brakes.

Check the differential fluid.

Also adding to what JD said, lets say your car has done 80000km's. what is the guarantee that the first owner did ATF fluid replacement at 400000 ? :huh:
