You might want to try Autosaver or Autoaid, their prices are much cheaper than AD.
Servicing packages are also stated in the webpage so you might want to compare before making any decision.

nissan got the npmp package costing around $1k+ for 4 servicing.

This is a good thread. I'm also looking at all the above cars to change to and currently in the lead for me is the Lancer GLX followed by Latio and finally Vios.

Any advise?

For latio 4-5 years,

change some belt before
every 10k engine oil change
every 40k transmission oil change
Brake pads changes as per required
tyres x 4 changed once
spark plug change every 100k

i would say not very high maintenance as compared as you can get stuff from nissan stockist =]

if you ask me, i am driving the old vios.
a very conventional car and very cheap to maintain as compared to latio.

my friend who drive a latio, prefer the drive of a vios over a latio, but comfort wise, latio wins.

Latio spark plug size difference from standard copper plug. But again you only spend $100+ spark plug for 10 years of driving.

Test drove the car after ASX. Hence, the feeling of less power after testing a 2L car. Spacious interior with minimal gadgets, feels simple to use, a good option for basic needs that is made in Japan. Sound proofing good but not excellent.
