2002 Toyota Vitz RS 1.5 NZE petrol from Kenya
A great machine worth the ownership of
So far, so good. Nothing to complain about.
A small, sportier and powerful car that I fell in love with the moment I set my eyes on it... The fact that it ran on a 1500cc engine manual transmission meant that it fit perfectly my weekly travel schedule to my place of work, approximately 200km away from my home.
I could see that its previous owner had neglected it, in terms of worn out shocks and CV joints, as well as multiple body dents and worn out tires.
According to the mechanic's advice, the car's engine, gearbox and wiring system was intact and I should go ahead to conclude the purchase. I used the obvious defects to make a bargain on the purchasing price.
On purchase, it took some money to rectify some mechanical issues as well as body works...
Right now I consider it the most prudent purchase I have ever made...
It runs well... stable on the road and competes effectively with other vehicles on highways. It's pocket friendly and has never experienced any major mechanical breakdown, other than regular scheduled servicing and worn out parts replacing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
