    Default Toyota Probox Spare parts?

    Salam PW's.
    I hope all you PakWheelers are doing well.We were saving up to purchase a 1300cc Toyota Probox in June/ July.Now yesterday, I was at the spare parts shop to get my Santro's air filter changed.I asked about the costs of probox's air filter, and.. the shop keeper told me that it cost 2300/- and was rarely available. After buying Air filters throughout for MAX 600, this was really a shock.
    Now I want to ask, Are the spare part's THAT expensive?
    And also can you tell me which is a better choice, Honda City 2007 iDSi or a Toyota probox.
    ...And the car is to be driven by a driver and you all know how roughly they drive.
    Thank you

    Exactly what I said to the shopkeeper.
    The toyota guys had no idea about the engine type.
    BTW, Thank you.

    Bro I would suggest to go for Vehicle like Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, City etc. Even Suzuki, Santro has no issue of parts availability. But these 5-8 Yrs old imported cars might be charming looking but thereare a lot of problems for which u wouldn't find replacement.

    I was thinking the same. But Probox is a complete package for my family.My mum's wheelchair can easily fit in aswell without being disabled.But this spare parts thing is bothering me alot. :/

    bhai aap nay dukan walay ko gari ka naam bataya to spare part mehanga hogya

    even though engine is same... my idea is to thoroughly chk the engine of any import you are going to buy.. and then chk which local car has the engine.. than go and tell the ignorant shop wala to give you a rolla filter.. from what i think.. the water body axels radiator alternator etc etc will be same as that of vitz or rolla..
    the problem is not our govt... its the people..

The air filter n oil filter used are same of as vitz 2006 and costs Rs. 300 each so total of Rs. 600, plugs should be same as well, i havent changed plugs on mine yet, my mechanic said the plugs installed are good for 60-70k easy, so will change them later.

    We are also considering it,

    IMO its a complete car,like seating and luggage capacity is good
    People say why buy a xli for (13 above)lacks ,instead buy probox for a million or so
    The men are back. @TGT.
