    Default My New Purchase - Daihatsu MIRA

    I recently purchased Daihatsu MIRA 2007 (new shape). My requirements were simple i.e. a good automatic car in lowest budget, as it will be driven by my wife who is not willing to drive manual cars. I was more interested in good/clean interior and good engine and least interested in external body (it should be in 1 piece, minor touch ups, repaint etc were not an issue for me)

    My searched narrowed to JDM Suzuki Alto & Daihatsu MIRA. Survey in End of June 2013 in Islamabad market showed that Alto with full option was available for not less than Rs 700,000 while MIRA (4 door) was not available for less than Rs 800,000. I shortlisted an unregistered Daihatsu ESSE (full option with 4 Auto) and a Alto 2006 for Rs 700,000 each but finally found this car.

    Below are some pictures of the ride.

    The next stop was to make the necessary changes i.e. different oils and filters. So I took it to Khursheed Autos in F-10 and made the following purchases

    1. Engine Oil (Castrol Magnatec 10w-40) Rs 1,750 for 3 Liters.
    2. Oil filter Rs 450
    3. Air filter Rs 850 (Its a malaysian made. Local one was available for Rs 400)
    4. Transmission Oil Mobil ATF 220 Rs 990 each x 3 bottles (Rs 2,970)
    5. Coolant Liqui Moly pre diluted Rs 450 x 2 bottles (Rs 900)
    6. Misc tuning cleanings etc...

    Total bill was Rs 8,500

    TabarakAllah.
    I am also looking to buy a similar small car.
    How is the ride?, any issues with ground clearance on bumps etc with a few ppl inside?
    Does it feel too underpowered with the A/C on ?

    Recommended is 0W-20 or 5W-30. I will probably change it next time. Do you know whether Castrol Magnatec comes in 5W-30?
