The Drive is awesome but every jdm demands some maintenance and repairs before you use them as your daily partner. particularly it lies in steering, wheel baring, clippers, and front excel you may be lucky to have no work in your car if you try to buy one with less mileage under 25000 km.
once you will use any JDM you will forget the bad time in hot weather and Passo Hana Plus Climate Control AC keeps you chilled in any weather. i some time park my car in very hot shiny lane but it takes hardly 3 mins to make the atmosphere pleasant. long story short the AC is very powerful and smart.
mileage is not bad my Passo gives me 13km plus in hot weather with moderate foot drive and AC on all the time and you wont believe in winter season without AC it was giving me 16km despite the fact that i am not a light foot driver. come on its simple petrol car means non hybrid.
in JDM you hardly get maintenance issues in which parts are not available. usually every thing is available in the markets except body parts but it takes no time to any supplier to call the parts from other region of the world. even toyota 3s claims that they each n every thing of JDM except body parts like lihgts, bumpers side mirrors etc. what we usually do in karachi when we dont get some specific part we buy used parts of vitz from local kabari market of shershah and almost every thing is compatible with passo because vitz and passo has same 1KR-FE engine.
remember this formula:
Pakistani Vehicle = frequent maintenance X cheap parts.
JDM = rear maintenance X expensive parts. (compares to mehran only otherwise pakistani vehicle parts are expensive then jdm)
