    Default JDM Time - Passo 2012

    Aoa friends.
    ...
    I have started this thread to share my new ride i.e. Toyota Passo 2012, so that people can get benefit from this thread and I can share my problems and get guidance from experienced members.
    .
    Before proceeding further I want to thanks to Allah Almighty, who has bestowed me (and all of us) with unlimited blessings? I want to thanks my parents for their incalculable hard work for us and family for the support? I am obliged to PW and its members who were always there to guide me esp. @muradi @huzaifa.haroon @karnol @us000 @asim867 @CerwinVega @villain @aliusman420 @Nabz90 etc.
    .
    First of all general details about the car:

    • Color: White
    • Grades: 4.5 AA
    • Odo readings: 15000 Km approx.

    • Date of reaching Karachi port: 17th July 2015
    • Date of reaching Tarnol dry port (Islamabad) / Delivery to us: 6th August 2015

    .
    In this I will discuss...
    • The difficulties I faced while searching for car in local market
    • Car cost and importer information
    • Tips to buy imported cars
    • Custom / Duty structure of imported cars

    Next... in passo, there is a twist button as shown in pic, which u have to twist forward with your fingers, in the presence of remote, and the car starts... ok


    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1613446


    Technology is same, pushing apparatus is different...


    In case of emergency means, if the batteries of remote get dead or remote lost, There is a MASTER KEY, which can be inserted into the jacket to start the car in the absence of remote... ok... now its clear or not...

    This twist start is also present in Honda FIT 10th anniversary edition...
    Usman bhai in push start cars, if the battery dies, the car starts just the doors dont open.

    In either case, these cars have smart entry system which is the ease by which one locks and unlocks the car by touching the door handle.

    Car will only start if u place the remote very near to the ignition... But if the batteries are totally dead, it will not start...

    The remotes of one of my other imported passo were lost/stolen at port, and the car was started with the master key...

    @DrUsmanNawaz..... Hope all is going well Doctor sahab. I was just wondering for a solution to arm rest in my passo as it is deprived of it being X. Quite nuisance being auto and without arm rest. In your sofa seat configuration Is arm rest fixed to some structure between two seats and rotatable or it is a removable item as i guessed from pic above where it is removed for seat cover job.... ? Actually i am looking for some good solution and dont want to put aftermarket arm rests while putting holes in center console.

    Aoa sir, it is fixed by a big size nut to the driver seat from the side, and it also act as a pulley so it is rotatable also...

    ThankQ Doc Sahab for the prompt response.... Any possibility of sharing a closeup of that big nut or mechanism so i could get a clear view... I saw that add of sofa seats too but to be honest i am not interested in sofa seat but only a small arm rest... rest is all good there... arm rests or center consoles available in market need to drill few holes which i dont like and dont want... so need to have a look on mechanism you have and then i would work on the solution.... Will share the results once got some decent solution.

    @DrUsmanNawaz, @muradi

    Toyota 3S is asking 6500 for the Transmission oil change for 4 litres of CVT is it OK? or is there any other recommended Transmission oil?

    my car has completed 50K on odo thats why planning to change it the current oil seems fine and its the same oil that came from Japan.

    what are your recommendations??

    @Docjunaid purchased the same oil from local market at about half the amount for his premio, same stuff same packing etc...

    3S charges are too much... I'll advice u to go to some reputed oil change shop, there also a filter involved in it...

    Id suggest purchasing CVT Fluid from them and getting changed from outside.
    Btw if oil is fine and u feel no jerks while driving then no need to change oil now.

    Agreed but it can be prolonged if the oil is in good health.

    Default Pros and Cons of Importing Car:

    Pros and Cons of Importing Car:

    Pros:
    • You know the exact condition of the car, body, engine, accessories etc.
    • You know the exact mileage
    • You know the correct price
    • Color of your choice (sometime have to compromise due to better condition/price in other colors
    • It costs you less than the market for sure


    Cons:

    • Wait of 2 months approx. (7-8 weeks)
    • Car accessories can be lost during transport (Both the remotes of my previous Pearl White Passo were lost during transport, may be by shipping company or at port), but this mostly doesnt occurs, My firend has now started importing remotes, SD cards etc. by DHL, it?ll cost few thousand rupees extra, but with peace of mind.
    • Sometimes cars get minor scratches/damages during transport in ship, at port or at carrier (Thanx God, mine didn?t get any, but unfortunate incident can occur)

    Types of people selling JDMs in market:

    There are 2 types of people selling imported cars in market…

    1. Direct Importers – Who purchase and import cars directly from Japan

    2. Dealers – Who purchase cars from importers or import cars through importers

    (A dealer can be a importer and an importer can be a dealer )

    As an example, there is a very famous importer (name is i think KHAN G), his business is near Karachi Port, (Similar ones on Khi Highway)...

    What they do, they import cars in huge number, and they set a day, say Thursday for RE-AUCTION of car in Pakistan, the cars are sold on "JAHAN HAI JAISI HAI" condition, And yesss there is free "LUNGAR" (Khana Peena) for all the people participating in the auction, usually there is no concept of auction sheet there, bs gari deko or bid kro...

    I saw same procedure being followed in FRUIT MANDI, where mangoes etc, are sold to purchasers via bidding...

    Dealers from small cities such as Wah Cantt, say 5-6 dealers, gather money, go to Khi, participate in these auctions, won cars in these auction, book a 18 wheeler carrier, and load cars on it, and come back...

    After few days they recieve cars at dry port Tarnol, cars can be non accidented or accidented...

    In case of accidented cars, the car straight away goes to work shop (usually parts of such cars are also imported with the cars, such as fender, glasses, mirrors etc)... after repair and cleaning and meter reversing etc. these cars are put on display in showrooms...

    Non accidented cars, just need cleaning and meter reversing and applying plastics over seats for newer looks...,

    Cleaning guys are really expert, they convert E grade interior to A grade easily... (will explain grades later)
