i own a Nissan Otti 2007 and its giving average of 16-18 in city, of course its winter and Ac is off.
i drove it on motorway from lahore to Sargodha (185 km with me 75 Kg,my wife 64 Kg,our servant 70 kg,two kids and full luggage ) and on motorway at Av speed 100-105 Av was 21 km/L
and a surprise to me was that the car went upto 138 km speed (total speed is 140km !) and still i could press the pedal down but my wife was afraid and i had to drop speed.
those who complain about Pick,the car automatically shifts to down gear if i press the pedal quickly(when need to cross a vehicle quickly),i dont know other JDm has this feature.(i have 4 speed Auto,1 reverse ( P,R,N,D,D2,D3)
The comfort is awesome.i also own City DSi 2007(also a fuel efficient model) but after i have driving otti,i dont wanna drive that
and i think the Nissan Otti and Mitsubishi Ek wagon are the same except the monogram.
Other features of it are
retractable mirrors even with remote,press remote button quickly 2 times to do it with remote
adjustable headlights( i like its light better than my city,its more clear and focused ).air bags etc those things are common in all JDMs,so m not lisintg
I bought it for reason of comfort,economy and auto gears(as Lahore traffic these days giving me knee arthritis on manual gears by pressing clutch again and again ) .
for Dihatsu Mira dont buy 2007 and below as those are not fuel efficient,go for 2008 and above models.(Always buy 2WD)
Before buying by car i searched a lot on net and personally met people and came to conclusion to buy Ek wagon/Nissan Otti.I did Istakahra too and Thanks to Allah i dont regret that i bought Nissan Otti
about the Part availability,i have found common parts like air filter,oil filter easy from my local oil change shop(Johar Town) and they were not expensive,air filter 350,oil filter i think was 400.and 3 L oil costed near 2200.i also changed plugs(which were written in its manual,costed 350 each, 350x3=1050. See my total maintenance cost was near 4000. and i wont be needing plugs for next many be 40000 km.
About other parts like head lights etc tell me how much a new Toyota or Honda reborn head light will cost....
i am sure it will cost less for these cars.
