Hi kuihock86,

I hope you still remember me.

Sorry for not updating. Because I have sold my Vios TRD early June. FYI, All mounting , Roof and so on has replaced before pass to new owner.

Tire for struggle for claim parts, complaints for SC/SA.

Is horrible experiences been Toyota Vios owner for almost 7 months. I lost 14k for sold the worst ever so called "Popular Quality and Good RV car".

Now I'm driving Kia Cerato 2.0 since July. And I can say the FC is same as this gen Vios. diff is 2.0 deliver much more power and Fun to drive. NVH is much better. ( disclaimer:- Not ads - Solely share the feels between Vios owner and now Kia owner.)

Lesson learned - Please don't believe those said Toyota has better Quality and RV than Kia.

Situation will change in next 5 years. Will see. Advice from ex-owner of horrible Toyota Vios car.

Hi, i also make complaint for many time, lastly i hard hard tell the SA i wan claim warranty for the lower arm. After check, he say change right side, i don accept, i keep fight for both side, then last last only say claim for me which i spend so many time to talk n talk n talk. The SA say foreman say claim right side, i ask him ask the foreman test drive with me. At last only say claim for me without test drive. WTF service! i fill the survey form very low marks because i was not SATISFIED!! i reqeust for other SA serve me, but come with the previous SA that i don like his attitude. So his survey marks, u know la.. hehe

We should gather as much owners as possible to take serious action. We suppose to enjoy our ride every time we drive. Not the other way round!!!

I have posted my Dissatisfaction thru Toyota Malaysia Facebook page. Seem they just silent --- no reply what so ever. 

I have sent complaint letter to Japan at . Now waiting for they respond.

If worse to worse. I'm consider to make press statement. Can you stand the Frustration of Dissatisfaction again the worse quality? Don't mention about safety features. This car all the long is worse in safety!!! Our life is nothings to them( Toyota ) For such High price We paid.



Gather as much as car owners... I'm ready to make a press statement too regardless car knocking issue upon speed bump, roof issue, and many other rattling sounds that occur

1. kluck sound from the engine bay, it's the engine mounting part number 1230521440, this is for the sound comes from the driver engine side, and sound like it's from the dash. i've just changed mine. silent now.

2. dash panel rattling settled with those small sticker like insulator. you can also diy there.

i got  too fedup with the sounds i put my car was in there for them to test all over entire week, bit inconvienience but at least it solved all my rattlings, no choice. just put your car there 2-3 days in sc for them to diagnose. if you go in 1 day diagnose and expect it to be done, it aint gonna be done from my experience.

Haha I see you are a loyal Toyota fan bro izzhunt and quite understanding personyes. There will surely be upgrades and improvements everynow and then some unfortunate buyers sure to miss out cos they bought a bit too earlyfrown. If anyone is to be blamed then must be the salesman who intentionally/unintentionally did not inform them about this. Perhaps those who are keen on the push start and keyless entry can get togather and appeal to UMWT to retrofit it at at cost. Then everyone will be happy macheeky Btw I am still stuck with my old Vios and no fancy gadgetsblush

The ratio is 1:1000? Out of 8 friends of mine who owned the 3rd gen vios, 7 of them said that their lower arm and mounting are affected. The another one said his vios is OK, but when i drove his, ahhh the same kluk kluk problem, only that he not realize it, easy to say... he only drive from destination to another

QUOTE(izzhunt @ 11 Feb 2015, 11:49 AM)


Noise came from the mounting & lower arm. It's a common problem for the 3rd gen vios. Juz go to the SC and make a complaint. They have been aware of this probs. Sure they will fix for U but it takes time to order the part. However not all of the owner affected. The ratio is 1:1000.

This is what SC told me..

QUOTE(NABILAFIF @ 13 Jan 2015, 10:37 AM)

hye im bill. i  got the same problem here. the kluk kluk sound. darn..what is that noice actually? i buy the full spec trd sportivo and this is i get from a 93 thousand ringgit car?what a disapointed.

friend, may i ask something? what do u mean by steering 'mengedik' effect? is it the effect of steering lawan balik our turn during cornering? like not a power/electric steering?

Hi guys!

I'm very much surprise to read that the 2015 vios is having so many issues.

I'm driving the '06 G spec facelift model and so far i'm still having an awesome and smooth ride! Besides the wear and tear of the car parts, i would say my car is still in tip top condition. On top of that, my car's mileage is clocked at 319800km now. Accelaration is still powerful as well as the handling is smooth.

Many mechanics, car wash staffs or even toyota mechanics themselves told me the my '06 vios model is the best model in terms of durability and reliability. Many of them said cos the assembly at that time is still largely manual compared to fully auto assembly now (as in heavily depending on machines).

What FC are you guys getting with the new Vios? Till today i keep an Excel worksheet of my car's FC. I'm still enjoying RM0.12 per km or 15KM/liters or 6.67liters/100km. In fact end of March, i could go 621 km on a full tank, i really wonder what's the FC of the new vios now.

Just early this week, my car got bang from behind, and it's just the that is damaged. After repair, it's good to go. If it's really true the quality have dropped so much, i'm surprised. They could make such a good Vios 9 years ago, and now instead of improving, it's deteriorating? Please look in to this Toyota!
