    Default Toyota Passo/Daihatsu Boon Owners/Fan Club

    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.

    check number of cylinders yourself by opening up the engine bay cover, this will clarify. One of the fellow members here has reported his car to be a 4 cylinder one.
    I will tell you guys tomorrow after checking engine bay regarding cylinder and for full option i mean the car has hid, push start, adj headlights,sliding seats, ABS, true keyless entry, immboilizer, retract mirror,hydraulic seats, air ionizer/ cleaner, fuel avgerage calc etc dealer told me nothing about the airbags nor i inquired its just that 2 of them are infront thats what i have seen till now, one on steering and other infront of passenger on dashboard.

    So the car was treated externally with Dove shampoo treatment first, mats and covers etc using surf excel ,Glass using Lyntex, at the end waxed. Took almost 6-7 hours. But end result is awesome. I have a phone camera so no picture quality but in reality it is a 0-metre car now.

    Great work...looks very clean now.

    you better check whether your car is Daihatsu Sirion or a Toyota Passo. Badge tells us its a sirion but it lacks features (to my knowledge) that sirion has e.g. the board in trunk and the transmission gear position.
    on a side note, why isn't LCD displaying any data when meter lights are on?
    were you able to trace location of A/C filter? and OBD port?
    We must know that around us is Pakistan, in us Pakistan marches and behind us Pakistan follows...

    ok perhaps sirion and boon do have their differences.

    A/C filter (cabin air filter)- you'll require to find that out in a matter of few months.
    OBD port- if you're planning to maintain car with a proper garage it should be fine otherwise mechanics will ruin it guessing where the fault is (when it ages further)

    I dont know about sirion because never saw one in pakistan nor heard about it but passo and boon are same. Exactly same. And abhi gari li hai nayi nayi dulhan hai. Thora time guzar jaye to i wont spare it from every major minor operation inside out be it OBD,ECU, EPS, Air filter

    Can anyone make a pictorial tutorial of accessing the A/C filter? I'm unable to detach the glove compartment lid.

    There are some trims which have full font seat, i mean like a single seat in the front where 3 people can easily sit. Just like vans back seats. I dont know about that trim but yes a fully loaded one i guess comes with a arm rest inbtw front seats.

    Both are same. No difference at all, neither in interior nor exterior just different badges.

    Dear Friends and PASSO/BOON fans,

    I am about to purchase PASSO/BOON in 1-2 days Insha Allah. I need some of your guidance to choose a right car from market (most probably Jail Road Lahore). I am asking because I have never purchased an imported Japanese car:

    1- What should I check in auction sheet for the car - can it be confirmed via internet?
    2- I also heard that dealers also has fake auction sheets - is it true?
    3- What should be the ideal minimum price for 2006 fresh import BOON/PASSO?
    4- Which features I should check in the car which I am going to select?
    5- How much cost would be for new car registration in Lahore specially for PASSO/BOON?
    6- Should I take a mechanic to ensure the car is mechanically fit? not repainted etc.?
    7- Does low mileage on meter means something - I heard that importers normally reverse the meters?
    8- Should I buy BOON or PASSO - does it really matter, or one is cheaper than other?
    9- Any other thing that you would like suggest me?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. google it if you can trust the dealer.
    2. True. most are fakes and almost no car is really grade 4.5
    3. somewhere between 840 to 860
    4. functioning A/c, heater, cd player, windows, powered mirror etc
    5. ~17k
    6. only if you can find a mechanic who knows automatic and modern cars
    7. practically nothing, they would "confess" its reversed, now show 38K while originally it was 75k. In reality the car is probably driven around 120k
    8. no difference i guess
    9. don't regret
    We must know that around us is Pakistan, in us Pakistan marches and behind us Pakistan follows...
