    Default y do jap sell their pruis within 100k KMS?

    Question is simple.. why would any1 (not just jap) sell their hybrid car within 100k kms odo? what can be the reasons? why not ride it for 100k more kms since its claimed to be cheaper on fuel? is it only cuz they opt for new shapes and models cuz they can afford latest? or any other, much sinister reason? any ulterior motives? .. this Q is in mind of every Pakistani who wants to buy a used pruis (or any other jap car for that matter)
    take tym in giving.. lyf's 2 short 2b selfish

    an average car repair (e.g brake overhaul, engine mounts etc) can cost upto USD 800~1000 easily. People who bought these did not pay cash but financed it on monthly installment - hence dont want to get into that burden,

    They have no other choice as a jugaarbaazi car will not pass inspections hence not be driveable on Public roads. In Pakistan every other car, including a Prius pulled by a donkey can drive on the road.

    After 3 yrs every car has to go for a full road worthiness test, so instead of all the MathaMari, Japs just sell their cars which are auctioned.

    Yup. Older cars are more expensive to keep in Japan so they get sent to the scrap yard- aka Pakistan where it is "zero meter" and "jenyan" for us Very similar to M.O.T in the UK
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.
