    my passo drinks only HOBC and have gone through single tuneup and throttle body wash by Toyota Eastern Motors since her arrival and there is no vibration as well, there were vibrations before tuning n TB wash.

    Honestly Bro, I don't have the experience of the New Shape Passo/Vitz. However i have gotten the oppurtunity of keeping 4 Vitz's and Test Driving Dozens of Passo's and Vitz 2006-2010 Alhamdulillah. And believe me. Not even a single . Yes not even a single car i saw was not vibrating and Had pick issues. From a 4.5 Grade Car totally driven on Zic Oil's and HOBC to a Dealer ki make up hui hui car. Passo's were more worse. And majority of the Vitz and Passo's over 80k mileage had completed their life. Before buying the current Swift which i have, i had finalized a 2008 Vitz. Was Very Clean and totally geniune. Mileage however was 132k genuine. Phir pata chala ke engine is totally fried. Had couple of more incidents in the past and the engine was always dead.
    The New Shape Passo and Vitz shares the same engine and Transmission so i believe they should be similar in performance ( I hope not ) .
    I pray that u or anyone would not faced the issues i am talking of but this was just my experience

    ohh thats horrible i wish and pray that no one get such defected cars, when i was searching car my first priority was JDM Swift but unfortunately didnt find a single one without any fault so end up buying passo Alhamdulillah and have no regret at all,

    my previous one was Starlet 86 1.3 so as compared to that passo does feel little sluggish in pickup

    I have noticed more precisely, there is no engine sound heard during highway drive, only tyres sound is audible...

    However during city drive, i do hear accelerating sound of the car.... but that is not noise at all...

    That is bcoz your car was more than 1 lac driven... For newer engine 0w or 5w is better...

    Dear @sarimkhan292 and all other friends...
    ..
    I want to make an announcement for you people, previously i was intended not to share this as the dealer told that it was a mistake and someone provide him a car with fake auction sheet... But now it is proven that the Dealer is Big Time Cheater... and it is not other than ALWARIS TRADERS ISLAMABAD... (Sad to hear name of Allah Almighty here)...
    ..
    I'll share my story for the benefit of other people in buying cars from open market, with the intention that hard earned money of the people should not be wasted for the lust of such nasty dealers...

    It was in March 2015 when after selling my previous car, i was looking for a car, and i saw this ad on PW by AlWaris traders, it was passo with 4 grade auction report...

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607371
    ..

    I visited there and the owner Mr. Khaawar and his assistant Mr. Awais welcomed me and show me the car, and he quoted that he is the only true importer in Islamabad and all other guys are not direct importer, and he sell original cars, and all other are cheaters selling accidented cars... He also said that he is the owner of Alwaris Steel Mills, located just opposite to the showroom, and he dont care about the little profit in cars...
    ..
    At that time i had no idea of auction sheet, how to read it or so, so we saw the car, it was LUSH PUSH, we made a deal and paid token Rs. 15000... I asked him to provide auction sheet and then i"ll pay remaining amount in next week...
    ..
    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607370

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607369


    ..
    I came back home, he sent me auction sheet of the car via Whatsapp, i put it on the thread by @asim867 and the response can be seen through this link... Thanks to @asim867 for providing me original auction sheet...

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/veh...-months-old-19
    ..
    Fake auction sheet...

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607368

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607367


    Original Auction sheet...
    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607366

    ..

    The auction sheet was fake... I informed the dealer that u have cheated with me, he promised to give the token back... after that me and my cousin would have called him hundreds of time literally, initially he used to pick fon, later stop picking my call, tried by other numbers, visited his showroom SEVERAL times, lot of Khawaari in going from Wah to Islamabad... After about 2 and a half month or so, i tried from a firend's no and he picked the call, i asked for money, he asked me to pick from showroom, by the time i reached there he was gone and his assistant handed over only RS. 10000 to me, i not only lost Rs. 5000 in that case, but also lost my dignity by waiting for hours for that jerk....

    All the auctions sheet and proof has been provided, dear friends beware of such nonsense dealers in future please....

    Thanx to @muradi @asim867 @saoud.arshad @huzaifa.haroon etc for guiding...
    @fouadbakht You were asking about my little knowledge about imported cars, that is how i came to know all about auction sheets and importing and different cars, after encountering this event, and studying different things later...

    Default Seats of Passo

    Seats of the Passo are quite awesome... There are 2 type of seats in different colors...

    In basic X and G grade cars there is cut seat, i.e. there is a gap between the front seats and in the gap a tray is well placed to put any small bag etc. and two bottle/cup holders for rear passengers.. Rear seats of basic package are simple, they are foldable to increase the room of the trunk... Color of seats is beige...
    ..
    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607374

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607375
    ..
    In Hana (chocolate color), Yururi (Beige color, My car is yururi), and Kutsorgi (Brown color) Packages...

    Front Seats
    • SOFA SEATS i.e. thicker than the X trim
    • BENCH SEAT i.e. front seat is in continuation and there is no gap between front seats, a child can easily fit into it
    • Armrest with a tissue box holder
    • Driver seat can be move upward/downward and forward/backward
    • There are headrest in front seats, not available in X packages
    • There is a Tray below passenger seat (for files/shoes etc.)


    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607376

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607377

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607380

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607379

    JDM Time  Passo 2012 -1607378


    Back Seats...
    • There 2-3 headrest
    • Back seats can be converted into a small Bed for children, also as the seats move into the gap between front and back seats, there is no danger of fall of children into the gap on applying brakes... My daughter move easily akll around playing with her toys and sleep comfortably... This feature is not present in X package...
    • Back seats are divideable and u can put luggage along with a person sitting on back...
    • Back seats are foldable to increase the room of the trunk so that u can fit an ELEPHANT in the trunk

    @DrUsmanNawaz

    Sad to hear about your experience with Al-Waris Traders. But Allah is watching everything

    And thank you for sharing the very informative write up on the seating of the Passo. I know for a fact that alot of the dealers in Karachi are unaware of the offerings of different models.
