Vios J spec is a real pain in the ass when want to pump air to the spare tire as the air inlet is at the bottom side, so need to take out the damn heavy spare tire from the boot (so difficult to do it when boot got lots of stuff) and put on the floor, then flip over so can pump air, their put the damn heavy tire back. How the manufacturers expect a lady to do all these heavy lifting whenever they want to pump up the spare tire ? Also wiper only got 2 speed - fast and slow - no intermittent speed - which is used when got very light drizzle when U don't need the wiper to move all the time, but stop a while before start wiping again.

Not just Vios J - all Vios spare tyres are stored face down to save a few pennies as they don't need such a long bolt to screw it down to the floor! Same with the wipers - a cost saving measure. If you want a better wiper control, you will need to upgrade to the more expensive Vios models.

Believe it or not, it is one of the first things I mention to people when they ask about the Vios.

 

Now UMWT suffer as Vios sales have tumbled. Too many cost cutting measures imposed on that model. But they never passed on the cost savings to the customer.
