The purpose of this thread is to discuss and share views regarding Daihatsu boon/Toyota passo and to provide a common platform for the owners and potential buyers to discuss the car.
Passo/Boon has become quite popular in the last 2 or 3 months. People are getting curious to know about this car which offers better features than the overpriced 1000cc vitz in a better price tag. The purpose of the club would be to share technical / operational information regarding the car. As well as help fellow members with different issues regarding the everyday running of the car. Realistic advices on prices regarding the condition and model of car will be provided.
a day earlier i bought Passo 2008- Silver color- Navi DVD/Retract mirrors- Bumper sensors- 4 auction grade- no piece touch ups- original auction report seen- 58K odo- 1000cc
What do u guys say if its for 900K
I was confused in Vitz and PAsso, but finally i went for passo for many good reasons !!!
in this forum people are passo loving and today i drove 60KM at max 140 speed, and it was fun driving it, i own Civic 2007, i can say it was more a less 18/20 difference as its 1600cc/1000cc
If you got it in 900 k, it cannot be the 4 grade. See sharabhi's thread "japanese used car on port", there you will find the cost + duties of a 4 grade car. 2008 model 4 grade car should cost around 925 to 950 k, how can a dealer give it for 900 k. Post original auction sheet here without hiding the chassis number, capsat or sharabhi will confirm whether it is fake or gen-one.
hy boy who said i bought it from a dealer
my cousin imported it , and i paid him 10K extra for his working only !!!
i will share the images of the car in a day and also Auction sheet !! i was reading this blog for 2 days, and finally decided to go for passo, and by the grace of Allah, 2 days earlier his car was in the city so i bought it
whats the best AVG of passo- among the members here !!
and which Air filter and oil filter to be used on first change !! i have not changed it yet
will go tomorrow for a change !! pls recommend.
The average depends highly on your driving style. A light foot on my passo gives me around 16KM/L in Islamabad. Recently went from Islamabad to Sawat-Kalam and back, the total trip had an average of 10KM/L. That trip involved many traffic jams and idle engine running for 5-6 hours.
For air filter, you can use the original 1KR-FE engine air filter. It costs around 1800 from Toyota dealer. For Oil, i am using caltex fully synthetic engine oil (yellow bottle).
