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.

For Nissan Latio, I just changed the rotor disc, air-con filter,brake pad, normal servicing, engine fuel and air-con belt which cost me a huge amount.

I still have yet to change the spart plug and rear combustion pipe which is leaking...

Mine vios 2009 ..so far usage 130k mileage , almost 5 years   ..bought in early  2009

 

Wear n Tear Parts

1 - change - shock absorber ,front and behind "this year" - $600 ++ 

2 - rear wheel bearing "this year" - $300 ++

3 - tyre 2 time all 4 piece " year 2011 and sept 2013 "- $900 ++ r15/195/55 

4 - battery 2 time " year 2011 and early 2013 " - $300 ++

5 - Radiator fan " year 2012" - $150 ++

6 - normal servicing and major - u can get from autosaver actuall pricing  "total around $2300"

7 - pulley and something " year 2009 " - I forget already - around $150 ++ ...AD almost charge me double or more

 

Simple calculation - you need to put aside $10k for parts n servicing base on 10 year running cost

havent include petrol , carpark , erp, road tax n insurance ...

 

 

all the way i service in Autosaver toh guan .still cheaper than AD ..i find autosaver slightly x but i like their service. 

actually i prefer AD but somehow got 1 event which make me stay with auto saver ..because AD not able to find the problem as every morning i got this  Belting sound .... after a while than gone .. but when i go to AD ..no sound and cannot find the problem.  i try my luck go auto saver ..wah lah .... they help me resolve  ..he just do some tightening ..and it works like magic.

 

note,

item 1and 5 should be cover under warranty if you service in AD ..anyway what the heck ..too far from my work place  

 

hope this info helps for those who want to buy car ...think ..think and think yah..before buy ..better be safe than sorry

Based on Vios:

For normal servicing, it's around $120 (10k), $ 240 (20k) , $360 (40k).

Wiper blade (every 2 yrs or 40k) - $40
Battery (every 2-3 yr) - $100
Types ( every 3 yrs or 60k km) - $500
Fan belt (80k km) - can't remember
Brake pads (60 k km) - $150/ pair
Shock absorber (say on 5th yr/ 120k km) - $600/pair
Water pump/ hose after 6 yr

On the avg, it's less than $1000/ yr...
