    Vito prone to break down, but driving it is good.Liteace is good for asian countries/climate(they said) unlike Vito(for european countries).Liteace shape as you can tell is abit round unlike Vito which is more of the square shape.Therefore liteace is smaller than Vito.

    Ps: what I'm comparing is the old versions of Vito and Liteace, not the new versions ever considered Hiace(not the high hood ver.)? or those Diesel turbo cars>

    Haha. Cant afford the new version of Vito la. Turbo diesel cars, do u mean the smaller vans like combo and kangoo? Yeah im comparing all of them. But i heard its like vito when time passes and expensive to maintain, and a brand new one wont be cheap also. So really have to make a right choice haha, i dont wanna be a slave to the car...

    In that case give up Vito in your choices, choose Jap models and you won't make a mistake, also are you deciding 1st hand or 2nd? Turbo diesel like Fiat Doblo(I think), Renault Kangoo, Citroen and such..0-100km/h I believe can fight with those spoilt brats driving WRX, but you're not a lacer so forget about that

    My views. Been driving this Vito since 2000. Once you drive continental, you will NEVER drive a Jap van again! Prone to breakdown? Been driving so long & has never break down on me. I've even drove up to Penang many many times without any problem!Not suitable for our climate? If that's the case all conti cars will not be suitable here. Square sharp? Check out my pix which was taken at Sepang during Advance Driving Course.It comes with original body kit. Been driving my co's van for so long no major problem. Only time is change brake rotor & your regular oil change, THAT'S ALL! Best of all,
    it's fast!!! So don't just listen to 1 side, go ask those from the eurovan club!
    Just my 2 cents. Cheers

    my thats a good thing for you, I've experienced 2 vitos already.Bad. Maybe because it was used for daily work usage.Anyway I saw a Renault or Fiat van on the road.Looks quite nice.

    In SG, many of the things getting first hand is not quite worth it
    getting 2nd hand is a gamble about getting a bad engine and etc..you decide.

    i second that...once you go european...you will never go to japanese..totally different feel...

    my combo has also never let me down before also...

    expensive to maintain? the engine oil a jap van uses...i also can use mah...its whether i want to use or not..its your call...the bottle wont say whether its for "european" or "japanese"...does it?

    spare parts yes...i wont deny that european parts are more expensive because of the exchange rate of euros..but if you take into consideration the lifespan of the product...the rate of depreciation might turn out to be the same.

    hahaa...i work for stamford tyres...but no way i will put their stickers on my vehicle....NO WAY.

    unless i am paid...

    opel combo's cabin is actually the same as opel corsa...meaning the combo & the corse is similar right till its A pillar, where the combo stretches higher...interior exactly the same.

    and no liteace can match my fuel consumption. i can get 16km to the litre average. Turbo. I can smoke any car below 1.6 litre...

    buying a vehicle is a long term committment. initial cost is substansial....but do consider the running cost as well....

    nah....road tax is only $500 a year....

    the implications are extensive...people will think yours is a company vehicle...

    "eh! lend me the van to run some errands leh..."

    "eh! lend me your van to deliver some stuff"

    and you know how people drive vehicles when its not theirs...

    where you get that idea from?
    hahahaha

    Opel Combo 1.7 DTI 0-100km/hr is around 15.5 seconds.

    top speed on paper? less than 160km/hr iirc.

    even the cheapest 2.5 wrx can hit 5.9s.

    don't be disillusioned by the word "turbo".
    a TC-ed diesel van is very different from your TC-ed cars, they are for very different purposes.

    and with the small 13/14" wheels and high center of gravity, just imagine the amount of bodyroll when you do hard cornering.

    go sit in a wrx and feel the turbo kick in before you make such comments again.
    or even better, drive both vehicles in a twisty road, feel how the AWD works and how it goes around corners.

    you can do that for cars, put 21" inch also can.

    but for goods vehicle, it's illegal.
    they are very strict even on the tyres' size/width you uses.

    and once you hits 160km/hr, you can only see the tail-light of the RX8 getting further and further from you at 235km/hr.

    i sat in a RX8 on NSHW before, the high speed performance was much better than i expected. in fact, i was astonished.

    also, how stable is your combo at 160km/hr?

    try going 120km/hr on singapore expressway.
    the car probably get a small fine and some demerit points, whereas you will go on court, get your license revoked and a hefty fine.

    oh really?

    wow...my eyes must be playing tricks on me...

    i see so many of my friend's rides with 15 & 16" tyres....

    and profiles comparable to any normal saloon car...

    and how much does a WRX cost? $80K? loan of $60K for most commoners?

    i bought my 2.5 year old combo with $22K cold hard cash...no loans...

    im liability free.

    can any $22K non-OPC below 3 years old give me a run for my money? guess not...

    bang for buck....i guess i got the best deal.

    the car vs van comparison will never end....there are things a van can do but a car cant...vice versa..

    anyway...lets get back to topic of van vs van shall we?

    hahah I've sat before in cars and I know the vans can't handle corners as well as wrx(duh!).Maybe turbo pickup can't beat wrx but can beat normal impreza as for the rest I let archenemy discuss with ya.Anyway kst24 don't mind share with the other riders about procedures for Van to enter m'sia as I know many would like to go in with Proper paperwork(not bribe).

    not good to openly discuss it here....even in eurovanclub forums...

    too many people know...someone will find out the loophole & plug it...

    if anyone really wanna know...can come to eurovanclub meetups...

    for the 1.7 CDTI, the stated top speed is 170km/hr.

    what about the stability of the vehicle at such speed?
    a normal car could easily hit such speed.
    don't need to be so defensive, i am not the one who is comparing.

    jB was the one who said that the TC-ed vans can "fight" with WRX.
    i just wanna to say there is no fight at all, in 0-100km/hr or in the top speed.

    the car vs van comparison will never end....there are things a van can do but a car cant...vice versa..

    anyway...lets get back to topic of van vs van shall we?
    bro, i have friends who owned such vans too.
    i know it's very value for money.
    and like you said vice-versa, they have different functions and serve different needs.

    but when someone say a TC-ed van can beat a WRX, i have to say something.

    just in case someone really bought a TC-ed van because of that claim, then realise it isn't true.

    it will be too late then.

    yeah peace bro....

    if anyone who thinks a $40K van can beat a $80K WRX...he must be dreaming....

    who will want to spend $80K on a WRX then?

    like i said the turbo chargers are for very different purposes.

    seems like you don't really know alot about 4 wheels vehicles.

    most cars in the same class are faster than the impreza.
    (the impreza TS is slow and underpowered due to the heavy chassis and AWD)

    but the AWD serves its function well during corners.

    and mind you, not all who drives a WRX are "spoilt brats".

    my friend bought an impreza, laughed it off when price dropped some amount.

    My dad's Vito interior is starting to fall apart after 5 years, and around 150,000kms done. Driven around in Singapore for afew years, It was shipped to Australia, where it seems to be much happier as it can stretch its legs. Cruises very nicely at the national speed limit of 110km/h.

    Air conditioner is as powderful as ever, but the radio and trim issn't very durable. The engine is very tough and will last forever, just change the engine oil, oil AND fuel filter regularly. Clogged fuel injectors are not cheap.

    As with all turbo engines, let the oil circulate before driving off, and give at least a minute of gentle driving before revving it, or the turbo might seize if its not lubricated and warmed up properly. I see some delivery drivers just start engine and whack....

    So in short, the vehicle is very tough, built to last. Mercedes knows what its doing.

    Who will guard the guards?

    shouldnt be too difficult for a caddy to do it...

    1.9 litres plus turbo plus a lot of mods...can be done...rather easily..

    whats more..the caddy is a very mechanical car...very few computers & electronics to contend with, hence its ease of upgrading...

    can ask around the eurovan club community for that "legendary" caddy....

    thats true. The best i achieved with my liteace was 16.7km/l with no load, average ard 14km/l. Many euro vans can achieve this figure easy. Guess must be the areodynamics of the body. Jap vans are physically bigger than most euro vans.

    yeah..most jap vans have a rather square front, making wind cutting taxing..

    whereas eurovans have a car front...

    actually in europe, our so called eurovans are actually cars there too...or we have the cabin of a car..

    and diesel engines are even used in mid sized & luxury cars there..VW, mercedes & opel are some of the manufacturers who use diesel engines for passenger cars..

    your liteace is petrol or diesel version?
