Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Imported From Japan

Recommended Posts

I have bought a toyota yaris verso (fun cargo) imported from Japan, but unfortunately the manual is in Japanese...

Is there any way I can obtain one in English (maybe online?), without going to my local Toyota dealer since probably he won't be very pleased I didn't buy the car from him!

My car also came equipped with a complete system navigator i.e. GPS, cd player, radio, cassette player, tv all in one. But it's manual is also in Japanese. The ones imported locally don't come with the navigator, so I can't find help in my country for sure.

I would appreciate any replies...

Thanks,

Tony.

Thank you for your welcome, jaxx and eminef!

Eminef: you bought one from where? Who ships them everywhere? Could you kindly give me an address or something?

Well, actually today I went to the local Toyota importer... I asked him for a rubber grommet for my other car, a Toyota Hiace, and guess what? He asked me whether I had bought it from him or it had been imported from Japan! :ffs:

You see, the new car importers here are very angry that there are people who are importing nearly brand new cars from Japan, and are trying everything to ruin their market, including making life difficult for people who want parts for their Toyotas.... When I asked him if he had a manual for Toyota Yaris Verso, he also asked me if it was from Japan. I told him no... (actually it is yes, my Yaris is a Japanese Funcargo the equivalent of the Verso). It was obvious that he didn't believe me because he went all red in the face and told me that the Funcargo is very different and that the parts do not match.... and that he does not have any manuals... :censor: I wonder if this is true...

Please help me. I live in Malta, here there's only one Toyota car importer and as you have seen he's not helpful. The guy who sold me the car told me that since he buys them from a japanese guy he can send him only japanese manuals... so that's not very helpful either.

But I need information urgently. Heck I want to change the Oil but don't know what grade or API I should give! :crybaby: I want to get to know my car!

Jimma: Thank you very much for the info you gave me! B) I managed to find Paul Ranson's web site. He has a manual for the Vitz, but the Fun Cargo (Verso) isn't mentioned. However I sent him an email enquiring. I also asked him if maybe he has a manual for the GPS Navigator, since mine is also in Japanese.

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed I get good news from him....... :rolleyes:

I just wondered if you managed to get the Funcargo Manual. I just bought a 2003 Funcargo from Malta and need the Owner's Manual in English and the GPS Navigator Manual. At www.spam.com the Manual is out of stock. Can you help me? Thanks.

Hi betaj, thanks for the website, maybe I will have a look.

What I need is the manual in English for; Date of manufacture - year 2000

It is a funcargo estate - Engine capacity 1298 - Max. technically permissible mass is 1285 kgs - engine number is 2NZ1275789. Boy, the Japan Toyota website is super with graphics, just wish they also had option to read in English!

what i found out actually is taht you are much more likely to find a service manual on the web rather than a regular users manual.

btw...seeing as you're from malta....do you ahve a problem with your headlamps turning yellow? Have you found any way of soilving it....I've noticed the european yaris actually has perfect headlamps which never seem to turn yellow....i wonder why!

Hi beta-j,

Actually I am not from Malta (my husband is) we are in Canada. But we have a kugin in Malta who is having the same problem as you, no help from the dealer.

His Toyota FunCargo came without handbook, and he was hoping here in Canada we would know how to get one. NOT SO! Can't even contact Toyota Japan, the website is all Japanese, no e-mail link to click. So I have snailmailed to Japan, see what they respond - if any! As for your yellow lamps, do you mean the actual lenses? Kid brother here bought a Vibe, all the newer vehicles have plastic headlights, so he ordered an after market kit which completely covers the headlights to protect them from stone chips or yellowing. Are your lenses plastic of glass? It seems to be the plastic that yellows... Sahha. Colleen

ic...the lenses are plastic.

what sort of kit is this? do you mean he has to remove it whenever he uses his headlamps or is it a replacement part?
