    Default Nissan Moco S (2013 model, 2015 Import) - Findings from a New JDM Convert

    Hi fellow PakWheelers,

    I was looking for info about Nissan Moco last month because I desperately wanted to buy a new car but unfortunately couldn't get any good info on this model from Nissan. So I'm going to share my findings for others who are in the same position.

    So here goes ...

    I bought a 2013 model (2015 import) Nissan Moco S in Rawalpindi last month. Was able to strike a great bargain for 805k unregistered. And my God what a deal it was. Love the ride, love the features and it gives pretty decent fuel average.

    Exterior is solidly built although looks similar to other JDM cars out there (actually resembles Santro to be honest). The car is a ditto twin of the Suzuki MR Wagon because it is being marketed by the name of Moco by Nissan under an OEM agreement. So nothing to worry about and you can be sure it's no pushover.

    For me, Nissan Moco S interior takes the gold medal. Made of white and grey combination for the dashboard, the car is aesthetically designed and is extremely comfortable. Steering and headlights are adjustable. Gear is on the dashboard. Very roomy leg space for both front and rear passengers. What delights me is the space utility of this nice little car. There are so many compartments on the dashboard that open with a push. There's a secret one under the front passenger seat as well in case you're travelling out of city with precious belongings. Bottle holders just below the AC ducts on the sides to keep your drinks cool. The leg room behind front seats is so large that you can even stand a suitcase even when front seats are slided behind. Seats are comfy and come with a nice soft fabric (brown textured in my case). It is a home run so far as interior is concerned. You will love it esp if you, like me, are switching from a local car.

    As for fuel economy, I've only driven the car in Rawalpindi so far because I work here. I keep a decent foot and don't accelerate it like a race car so it is currently giving me an average of 17.9 KM per liter (there's a digital meter showing that as well). I haven't changed it's oil yet so I'm pretty sure it will give even better fuel economy when I do that in a week or so (probably Zic 0w30 or Liqui Moly ... not decided). Haven't taken it on the motorway yet so you'll have to wait for that update.

    Handling is pretty nice. I made sure and test-drove to check the car for mount and suspension issues before buying. The car gives good clearance unlike other JDM's. I'm thinking of installing a rear camera just for my convenience (btw, the car comes with a genuine multipurpose CD audio/touch panel which can double as a rear camera view, make sure it is there along with built-in front dash and rear door speakers before buying because it is one of the best perks of this car).

    You'll probably have to change tyres if you buy a Moco. Manufacturer's specs are 145/80/R13 which I'm currently using (haven't changed yet). Unfortunately, there's no tyre available in this size in the market for 13-inch rim except for General, which is a complete waste of money. So after a lot of research and discussions from all kinds of motor experts I will be getting Dunlop's 165/65/R13 for my Moco S.

    Overall it is a good buy. Very underrated and people don't give due credit to this car. I would highly recommend this car to all buyers.

    So that's all for now. If you have any questions, let me know. Positive criticism is always welcome. I could learn a lot from you all. Recommendations for Oil type and Tyre sizes would be greatly appreciated.

    Nissan Moco is cheap but mostly with deployed airbags. I got mocos imported for client as cheap as 740k minor damage though deployed airbags. Cars are running fine, Alhamdulilah.
    Today we went ahead of monal with 5 ppl and car climbed. Its the most spacious and powerful 660cc.

    Wow. I could've saved more if I knew you imported for less ... Anyway thank you. Good to know your Mocos are running well. It is a very underrated car in the market. I find it so funny

    I know bro, took a lot of convincing and patience haha ... one has to respect one's pocket Documents have been sent to my hometown Lhr for registration as I didn't want Pindi/Isl number. I don't have scans or pics with me at the moment. Will ask my bro there if he could whatsapp me or something. Pics have been shared however. Not great quality I know, but these are the only ones I had on my phone for a quick reply : )

    You don't need a anti-theft lock for these cars, no one steals them... plus they're usually equipped with immobilizers!
