I just got the Toyota - Vios 1.5G two weeks back.
All are in good condition except the cover on the left hand side near the front passenger door, looks like it's not fixed properly.
Could I refer it to the local service centre?

I'm very happy with the VIOS 1.5G. I have very good after sale support. Car runs well with good sound insulation. Could hardly hear the engine running. As for fuel efficiency, I get about 13kms per litre city driving. Might be less than what others are raving about.
All in all. 2 thumbs up!

I bought my Toyota Vios 1.5 G Manual last May 2005, the greatest factor I sold my old car (Nissan Sentra Series 3 1997 model) is because of the fuel consumption. It takes me to 10 km/liter after several full tanks. But ALAS! my new VIOS' fuel consumption is also 10 km/liter, a far cry from the 17km/liter that the sales agent said before I bought the vehicle. Is there someone here who already experienced this 17km/liter on a 1.5G Manual? I know somebody will react its due too many factors like poor driving habits, speed, passenger weight and so forth... I bought the car and questioned the dealer about fuel consumption, telling me straight forward that it is 17km/liter! I think it is an instance of marketing malpractice. I even dare the dealer that they can have my car if they can prove to me that it can go 17km/liter in "normal driving condition". The manager doesn't dare to talk to me or even have the face to come out.

I don't know about you guys, but I've had my Vios 1.3E for almost three years now and it's still economical. It used to run 18-19 km to a litre in the city when it was new. Now at 57,000km I get 16-17 km / litre city and 18-19 highway. Most of the time it is the driving style and the other factors such as cargo weight, setting of A/C, road condition, weather, etc.
Modifications also alter consumption such as bigger tyres and wheels, installation of performance parts, etc.
The Philippine government did an economy run for all models available here and the Vios 1.3J won running a total of 22km per liter-and that was in the middle of a strong typhoon last year!! The Honda Jazz (Fit in some countries) ran only 18 while the City ran 19.
Or just maybe your wife is too fat. For that I recommend divorce. Find someone who looks like Britney...

Orimar-got a 2008 vios 1.3j. fuel efficiency is not as good as advertised. My altis 1.6j 2007 is more fuel efficient than the new vios.

I drive a 2005 Vios that I have been given by my company, and I'm extremely satisfied with its performance, smoothness, comfort, looks etc, but there's one factor that worries me a lot. Its fuel economy.. I get just about 8-9 KMPL in city running, and this is 1497cc AUTO.. I had been told that this does about 12 KMPL in town, but what I experience is something totally different. Is there anyone else who has experienced high fuel consumption like me?

Last commenter - which country are you in? If you are driving in heavy traffic, not many cars, especially with an automatic, will hit 9 km/L especially with air conditioning. In some cases, even without the air conditioning, it won't hit 10 km/L anyway in urban driving.

I get about 21km/liter highway when driving at a speed of 85-90 and get 17km/liter when driving 100-105km/h. In the city I only get 9 to max 12 kmpl.

My Toyota Vios 2005 model runs at $17 a full tank and can drive for 400km. Hahaha.
I have been using it for 13 years.
The highest priority is to service the engine oil frequently to maintain the smoothness of the engine. Parts are cheap, fuel is cheap/economy car. Less headache for faulty parts.
A recommended vehicle for everyone who prefers to go for budget transportation.
