    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.

    Ok guys, I think this is the time that I should be member of this thread.

    I directly purhased my Boon 2007 from the importer after a lot of efforts to buy a 660cc car from Jail road. Believe me, almost every car's odo was showing 30,000 to 35,000 km mieage but their interiors were showing a different story.

    My boon's mileage was 64,500km. Thanks Allah, my Boon was cleared before August 31st when duties were increased.

    Some minor scratches on the body that disappeared after polishing and a couple of kulams applied.

    A repaired dent U3 size on back bumper. Front tyres had completed their life.

    Denters, painters and mechanics passed this car.

    Now an honest review of Boon:

    Work done:

    Tyres were giving humming sound. Because front tyres had completed their life, therefore I changed all the tyres and this problem gone. Searched every where (Nila Gumbud, Mozang and Faisal town) for stock tyres 155/80/13 but except general tyres, there was no option. Switched over to Chinese Jinyu tyres 165/80/13 and the problem of ground clearance solved as well. 165 is not that wide but combination of 165/80 increased ground clearnace.

    Took the car to a renowned Toyota 3S dealer and they said that they dont have any software or whatever even for Vitz. However, I changed engine oil (4L) japanese toyota engine oil, changed gear oil (3L of 1L pack) of japanese original gear oil AT transmission, changed oil filter, changed spark plugs to denso iridium, cleaned throttle. After this my Boon was ready for the road.

    Yesterday, my ride completed 300km on soft padel. It gave an average of 16km that included 50km on motorway and 50km on highway on AC. I used hi octane.

    I can compare this with Reborn that I had from 2006 to 2010 and with Toyota 2010 GLI model that I currently have. Boon's drive is similar to reborn's when it comes to softness of drive and braking efficiency. But it is much much better than my Toyota 2010 in terms of braking and driving pleasure.

    It feels comparatively roomy than reborn/corolla and significantly roomy than Vitz. Trunk space is also adequate if not enough.

    What I dont like (please share your thoughts):

    Under speed of 10km when you press the brake pedal, wheels give sound. Mechanic said its normal for automatic cars.....

    Front doors do not close smoothly but with souund. This I noticed with every JDM car on Jail road. I dont know why.

    Car is smooth but on uneven road, I can hear rattling sounds. Perhaps jdm's are not designed for Paki roads.

    At speed over 120km, I did not feel comfortable with its power steering as it became more soft which is dangerous. My corolla's power steering feels much safe at speed over 120km.

    Hope it helps the guys who intend to buy a 1000cc jdm car

    We are habitual of banging Suzuki doors to close them, You just push the door with ur finger and closes smoothly.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Im going through the same situation since no new cars are avalible i had the idea to get a certified Alto/Coure but thats of no avail too. you get a 2011 Coure for 8ish and Alto for 750ish without any features at all. a good 660cc is a Mira that too a good car is around 800,000 ish, So over all a Passo/Boon seems to be a better option, yes the shape isnt very apealing. But their arnt too many options then.

    You can Try at Auto center near bondo khan Sindhi Muslim society. They have majority 4 4.5 grade ultra low mileage. I have verified one auto center passo by sharabi (shahzaib) bhai result positive. If u don't get anything with ur budget they allow u to choose n booked from online Auction website but that takes a month.

    After all, one has to take a bit of calculated risk. When I went to take delivery of Boon from truck adda, I saw some zero meter locally assembled cars that were accidented badly while transportation, pillars broken, diggy smashed etc. I don't think authorised dealers will replace the car to the guy who booked it . They will say your car is delayed. During this time they will repair it and then hand over to customer as a shining 30,000km driven jdm car.

    I bought my passo with dent on trunk. 56k km on odometer. I bought after getting it checked by my mechanic. I was bit suspicious about odo meter reading of my car. Today sharabhi aka shahzeb confimed me from the auction server that it had dent on trunk and it was 56k driven. I am glad that i got a low mileage car

    I bought it for 875 k. I dont know which grade it is, but it has back wiper, retractable side mirrors, adjustable headlights.

    I am happy that i didnt suffer odometer reversing

    I saw the car when car was released from port i.e. same day! It had dent on trunk and broken bumper.

    If u need one should i ask my neighbors?

    Do we need to press brake every time (and harder?) when ever we change gear, even when car is in "D" mode?

    Someone told me that brake should be pressed only when it is in "P" mode.
