    Thanks Arsh for your detailed response and information given is very helpful.
    As per my knowledge that mostly all JDMs are 100k driven, I think transmission oil is needed to be changed around 75k.
    Pls advise about transmission oil change ?
    Secondly, is it okay to wash engine when we goto a service station ?
    Yesterday i took my Prius for a full service which included engine wash as well.
    And people around there were like that this is an electronic car and we should not wash their engine.
    So pls also advise on this ?

    I will surely post my mileage experiences here.

    You can wash prius engine but dont get it done by service stations. They usually throw large amount of water on the engine. I recently bought my prius and dealer told me that bhai tameez say pani gira k dhoya jayay tou kuch nhi hoga, pani ka fawwara chala day *** is pay tab kuch ho jayay isay shaid otherise pani say dhonay ka koi issue nhi.

    You have to get under the car to see the car specific engine number. Usually the engine number on vehicle documents is the engine model.

    Walikum Salam @Farhan The newer the better ,Prius isn't the car that will give you problem.It is one of the most reliable cars in the world
    I would suggest to go for 2009 new shape or 2010.This way it will have less millage.2ndly I don't think there are mechanics avalilble for Prius in Isb and Pindi but i might be wrong. I have seen many Prius on Isb roads and their number is increasing with time.It is one of the best JDMs

    This morning I read a news from India about Hybrid & Electric cars. They talked about Indian Govt. commitment towards Hybrid & Electric cars. The most interesting part was, "Indian Govt. will subsidize the Hybrid Electric cars by Rs. 150,000. They will allocate Rs. 22,500 Crore till year 2020 to promote and give incentives to the Hybrid vehicle owners."

    Now look at Pak Govt. where do they stand? Playing around with CNG/LPG thing.

    Guys here is my calculation on fuel saving because of Prius. Previously I used to drive belta which gave me around 13km/L. My Prius is giving me around 22.5 km/L and I drive around 2500 km/month.

    Prius:
    I drive 2500 KMs per month with an average of 22.5 km/l, while the price of petrol is 102 Rs/L.
    So my car consumes 110 liters of petrol which is Rs. 11,333 per month. In a year I spend Rs. 136,000 on petrol.

    Belta:
    Average 13 km/l ---- 2500 km/month drive and petrol is 102 per liter
    In this case my car consumes 192 liters petrol which turns out to be Rs. 19,615. In a year I will spend 235,384 rupees on petrol

    So, I will save 136000-235384= 99,384 rupees yearly. With increase in price of petrol my yearly saving will also increase by a huge margin.
    This huge saving will end up in good saving even if your pay for maintenance and repairs.

    Just to add more to the fuel savings;

    I have saved more than Rs. 30,000 in fuel costs just 2 months. If I continue to use this car with same average then I will save about Rs. 180,000 annually. My Prius average these days (within city) 23.5km/L. My fuel comparison is Altis 1.8L vs Prius.

    Hello experts...can anyone of you tell me the difference between a japanese import prius and UK Import prius and which one is better. I was just wondering that having a UK prius can solve atleast onemajor problem of language in MFD.

    One alternative; if you use a smartphone for example Galaxy S2. Then you can install a translator in your phone to translate the Japanese language. It is going to be a challenge using the translator though but you will be amazed how the translator will helps you to play around with MFD. Have fun.

    What i get from your post is that the car has some built in computer system that at the end of the journey gives you exact figures of distance travelled, fuel consumed and average of the car. Is this system different from what we have in new corolla or city that is giving us continous display of fuel average on the meter. To put my question in more simple terms, how do you measure the fuel average in this car?

    Can prius owner please comment on this.

    Today I traveled about 20km within city. At the end of the trip the fuel avg on MFD was 26.2km/L.That means my car consumed less than 1 liter for the entire trip.

    As per my observation, more you drive the better fuel average on Prius.

    Average calculation is pretty simple. Fuel average is displayed on MFD (multi function display) as you drive the car. Usually, I reset the fuel & trip meter to 0, everyday in the morning. Then at the end of the day (back in the garage), I take the fuel average reading from the MFD. Prius system calculates average every 5 minutes, and display a graph and numerical number for the entire trip.

    Sir, with all my respect i dare to say that you are kind of insulting all those who have worked very hard to buy Pakistani Hondas and corollas and even imported cars like prius. For all such people of whom i also am a part of, these cars are the ultimate luxury. Lexus, BMW or MB are something that goes far beyong luxury and not many here can afford these luxuries.

    I have heard that UK models have radiators with single tube. The car heats-up quickly and keep it warm in UK cold weather. However, in Pakistan the weather is already too hot (summer times). So, UK models may have heat-up issues. I have not experienced or seen this situation however, I heard one car dealer explaining this issue with UK models.

    As far MFD language is concerned; a person like me (who does not know Japanese) can still read basic info, fuel average, use climate control, audio controls from a Japanese Prius. However, some advance menu options still an issue. But I use translator from my Galaxy S2, to translate the menu if necessary.

    Thanks for the detailed reply however it has arisen one more question...is this one tube radiator present only in prius or all uk model car comes witth this kind of technology. I mean we are getting yaris, aygo, MB and BMW imported from UK as well.

    As far as MFD in japanese language is concerned, translating it to English should not be a big task if this is done by japanses prior to import in Pakistan. In my opinion it is the job of car importers to get this done for their consumers in Pakistan as a value added service free of cost. I mean people are paying a lot of money to buy these cars and it is our right to have full access to the equipment installed in the car. Not everyone can buy a particular smart phone for getting a translation of the MFD.

    What do experts of japanese car (prius in this case) say about this especially those who are commecrial importer of these cars.
