    Drive carefully! Remember, it's not only a car that can be recalled by it's maker.

    Have seen a lot of concerns and questions regarding good mechanics and availability of parts. Have done a bit of research and can recommend 2 work shops (who know the hybrids well and can provide new and used parts at fair prices)

    1- INH motors near LHR Airport (the road that connect the new air port road and Zarrar Shaheed rd.
    2- Suntech Autos LhR (peco road and the second outlet off guru mangat road near Hico Factory/Dawn News Paper office)

    Please share if any one can recommend more in Lahore or other cities.

    No, maximum three months. Is your car more than three months old?

    these reads may prove prius to be an expensive car than the rest of the cars in the market but thats in the US where conventional cars are cheaper than hybrids. In pakistan, however, its a different story. If you carry out a car comparison of prius with any other local car in the market, aside from the lack of spares and resale, prius is better than most of them. why? honda city aspire with only front airbags costs 17.5 million and no other feature to boot. A good prius can be found in the same price with 1.5 engine, 12 SRS airbags (i'm not sure but i think i'm correct), parking assist, emergency brake assist, fog lights, alloy rims, in built 6 cd deck, JBL sound system with 4 speakers and 2 woofers and an excellent mileage. Plus prius has come out in accident tests with 5 out 5 in every accident case except with a 4 out 5 in case the car barrel rolls. Can you get any local car with these many functions, excellent drive and safer than most of cars on the road. I dont think so. as for resale and spares. right now spares and tuning is available at toyota dealerships although with hassle and very little resale value. check this link:
    Toyota Prius becomes one of the most imported cars in Pakistan | PakWheels Blog

    toyota is setting up manufacturing plant of prius in pakistan at end of 2014. after that resale problem solved, spares problem solved and prius will be huge success in Pakistani marktet InshAllah!!

    Hey everyone. Al Hamdulillah just bought an 07 prius today. Have a question for anyone who knows about the audio system of the prius. Is there any way i change the audio system? People keep telling me not to take any sort "panga" with it by showing these audio guys. If possible can someone recommend me a guy who can help me out changing the system?
    Also my prius doesnt have a rear camera so is it possible i can install one?
    thanks

    you can easily install audio system in prius. as you dont have camers i.e. without TV option, so you can only install simple sudio system. If you would have tv option then dvd player could have been installed which could be played on display. If you are in Lahore I can give give you names of two audio shops which will do it for you. But the mp3 player will be installed below disc player and you can still open and close the lid.

    You can install a rear camera but I dont think so that it will not be displayed in MFD as basic prius doesnt have TV option.

    As you dont have camera option, so I assume that your car doesnt have bluetooth and multimedia option. If you have multimedia option then dvd player and rear camera can be easily installed but in my knowledge cars which doesn't have rear camera are basic model without multimedia options

    Salam every one

    Just bought a 07 Prius and since than have driven it 250 KM and done a bit of a research. Here is what i have to share:

    I have driven it around 250 Km in the last 4 days, and it is giving me 22.6 km/l average. As far as I have researched the health of batteries can be judged from the mileage you get. if you are getting any where between 20-25 KM/L you donot need to worry for at least another 200K In sha Allah.

    More over I have got hold of the Prius owner's manual in English you can download it from:

    http://sdrv.ms/Wvk37d

    (click or copy paste in your browser, it is a pdf file)

    Lastly, My prius was kissing every speed breaker in Lahore when loaded with 3 or more passengers, Just had packing installed (1 inch front/ 1.5 inch back shocks), the problem is resolved. Got them installed from the kharadia next to Filter house on Montgomery road lahore. charged me Rs2,800 (bargain with him, he asks for 3,000) Also thinking of installing 175/75/15 tires (currently has 65's) that should add about another inch to the clearance.

    Hope the info helps.

    Tip: One thing I read from the manual is that you should never leave you car shifted to (N) as the batteries only get charged when the gear knob is in (P)(D) or (B). If left in (N) for long the batteries might get drained out and the car might not start.
    Drive carefully! Remember, it's not only a car that can be recalled by it's maker.

    yes you can install separate HU. I am attaching a pic which shows how another HU can be installed but get it done from a good shop. It looks really good.

    I dont think so because japan mai different type ki TV frequency hai aur pakistan mai totally different. You can get dvd player installed just like mp3 HU to watch video on screen
