    @ Dr Usman.

    These are not cold plugs. But supplier quoted these as best plugs for Passo and Vitz. Lets see.

    Dr Usman many congrats for achieving a milestone of 100 pages.
    One suggestion,, summarize the whole discussion regarding passo especially 2012 like u did for the initial purchase of ur car
    e.g use of petrol, oils , daily maintance , etc and if possible mechanical troubleshoots.
    Stay blessed

    1. no SD card is available,
    2. secondly i was unable to change the language.
    3. The USB also does not work. Means it has a USB port but there is no Play USB option in the software. May be the USB is for booting up purposes.
    4. The FM radio range is also an issue. So only utilizable thing is DVD player.

    It is working OK for my use, apart from navigation functions, and for that reason I am thinking of replacing it with after-market player.
    Upadate on the Player is i was able to do couple of thing.
    1. I was able to pair my mobile phone with the player. It allows for playing audio through the player along with playing control such as play/pause and volume.

    2. The pairing allows for attending calls. There is a small mic attached to the steering which connects directly with the player so you do not have to shout to be heard.

    Only thing that is now left is navigation maps which i do not think is possible

    Just upgraded to Rotalla f102 tires for mine boon

    175/70r13

    It is Chinese , shop keeper told me that it is American brand but made in China.
    I checked bridgestone also but it felt hard to me and it was also made in china.

    Also its manufacturing date was old so he suggests me these one.

    Anyone know of this company and have experience of these tires?

    I used them on my Mehran, the shopkeeper have it installed on his own car as well, so i went for them and installed them. However i avoided these tyres for my Passo because my colleague who bought mehran from me reported a bust tyre on his way to abbotabad. The tyres were hardly 2k driven. We took the tyre back to the tyre shop. The owner told us that the air pressure was low and the tyre was cut by a sharp object. The cut look like a work of sharp object but that was enough for me to lose my faith. Bought bridgestone 175/r14 for 22k for my passo. They were hard so replaced them with yokohama

    The same Chinese company makes another brand Joyroad, which are a little expensive than Rotalla

    Same here, the shop keeper himself have same tires on his cultus that is why he advised me for these.

    I checked dunlop and bridgestone beside these and both were hard from these. So i decided to go for this one

    How was the drive when you installed them on ur mehran ?

    Means noise on road, grip, jump etc?

    One more thing, is 175 size ok for passo ?
    What is ur fuel average after this size?

    During me search on Internet i found out that these are not American brand. These are pure Chinese brand but one of the top company in china.

    These tires are very famous in America and Australia

    And one of the top selling tires in Australia.

    Today's experience with new Rotalla tires (175/70r13)

    Ride got much smoother and comfortable. No road noise as i use to get from stock tires.

    Much better on jumps (softer)

    Let see in future how they perform on high speed.

    I have kept the air pressure to 30 for now. Any advice on it?

    I first installed Bridgestone 185/70/r14 on my passo. very hard tyre. Plus when steering was fully turned, they touched the internal lining of the tyre bay, so i went back to the tyre shop. 2 options that were available were Yokohama 175/70/r14 for 26k and hankook for 21k. I opted for Yokohama because they were softer.

    Fuel average was not effected. I tested it manually as well. Also some people suggested that increasing the tire size will add some error in the speedometer reading. I validate the speedometer reading with my smartphone GPS and they were 99% aligned.

    The recommended tire size for Passo is 165/70R14 . Diameter of this tire is 23.1 inch. 175/70/R14 has a diameter of 23.6 inch which is almost the same. However the width of the tire increase from 6.4inch (for 165/70) to 6.9 inch (for 175/70). Which means more friction and a slightly (almost negligible in my case) lesser fuel average

    Dr. sahab and all others who can help me, I have passo 2010 /2014 done 42,000 Km. I am curios about its fuel average which is 11.5 / Km karachi city drive with A/C .

    I have changed its spark plugs to original Toyota, still no major recovery. Engine oil is good enough to run 1000 kms more (As advised by my mechanic) thats why I didnt change.

    PS; i have checked ECO mode but no gain.

    I have changed its spark plugs to original Toyota, still no major recovery. Engine oil is good enough to run 1000 kms more (As advised by my mechanic) thats why I didnt change.
