    I have surfed the net and have also read a thread on pakwheels about some code error in the cvt transmission of Prius which renders the vehicle unstartable and can only be fixed by replacing the complete transmission... And for the battery issue, Is there any guaranty about the battery health? What if you spend 1.7 million on a vehicle and land in such a situation where you have to replace the hybrid battery or transmission any time sooner then a few years then That can be very frustrating... So I want to be clear of such fears in my mind... I have driven the Prius and am almost in love with all that it has to offer but again when I think about the potential issues which can arise within a few days or months after buying it I get double minded...

    Salam bro .... I have Prius 2007 and I am having many problems with it. it is showing check light. I went to a mech for the check he said that it is code P0420. which means "Catalytic Conveter efficiency below threashold level. he said I should change the O2 sensors first coz CAT is very expensive. Now after searching the whole market I can't find this O2 sensor. Also it shows master check light after driving 60km and the engine stops. I have to park and stop it to restart the engine. Can any body help me out .... I am in a fix after buying the Prius

    if you were in lahore i could have recommended you a couple of good workshops that can source any part for your prius and fix any issue, i ma sure there are many in rwp - ppl in rwp may help you.

    wont recommend you take it to Toyota dealership, they will charge you a fortune.

    good work shops in Lahore for prius:
    1- INH motors near lahore airport
    2- Suntech Motor off gur mangat road near pepsi factory
    3- Javed Denso off queens road - especially for electronic faults, engine errors, sensors and battery issues) he can source used batteries for you for 50,000 (with limited warranty)

    ask me for directions / contact details.

    thanks for replying dear shah and bilal! i think that the condition of the vehicle at the time of purchase also should make a marked difference... bilal can you suggest some measures or precautions at the time of purchase... and in what price one can get a vehicle which is not likely to give problems? and from which dealer in lahore?
    and shah from where and for how much did you purchese this prius? its import grade, model and milage? UK or Japan import?

    and shah from where and for how much did you purchese this prius? its import grade, model and milage? UK or Japan import?

    Here are my 2 cents on buying a new car:
    1- Always always view it in day light.
    2- always check all window, windscreen and back screen glasses for original (Toyota) stamps.
    3- always stand at an angle to see the body curves and lines are all straight and "crisp"
    4- always get on your knees to take a deep look under the body and wheel arches for tell tale signs of repairs i.e. bulges, or color sprayed on glass,wiring or tyres etc
    5- check the engine bay area, especially for any fiddling with wring
    6- check the radiator and A/C condenser for any damaged fins or repairs (peep through the grille or front bumper)
    7- Check the tread of all 4 Tyres for any uneven wear
    8- always take at least 20-25 minute test drive and take full u turns to check for problem with the drive shaft or "Godda". this will be
    the toughest part as most sellers wont be comfortable with it. If i like a car, what i do is pay the seller like 20K as token money just to give the seller the comfort that I am not a tyre kicker. A long test drive will also highlight heating up issues etc.
    9- In case of Prius the test drive will also help you measure the health of the batteries, if they are in good shape, you should average between 20-25 km/l
    10- check all electrics such as engine check lights, abs check lights, a/c, head lights, cruise control, each power window, central locking, touch screen reverse camera, wipers (a repairing them can cost you dearly)
    11- if applicable make sure all annual token taxes are paid.
    12- always check import and custom docs,(especially bill of entry/ bill of laden) as a precaution get a copy of the docs, put your initial on each page and give it to the seller, so that in case any of the papers in missing you can get back to seller.
    13- Never trust the auction sheet, 90% of them are fake!

    All the car dealers are !!#!#*&$$^^$&@^, so I cant recommend any one- I would suggest don't haste go around and try to find a neat clean car. Depending on trim (s -s touring- g or g-touring, T4 etc.) and color, a 07 Prius should cost between 16-18.50.

    Avoid buying a simple S spec Prius (or any basic spec imported car) as there is a great probability that it would have been used as taxi or rent a car in Japan due. If you can afford the extra buck, choose pearl white or pearl black (they cost 100 K extra) as they are most likely used as private cars.

    Final advise, If you can wait, there are numerous importers who offer you to choose a car online from an auction house they will bid for you and import it for you. They will charge between 50K and 100K and take care of every thing from getting the car on ship and getting clearance at the customs.

    Hope it helps.
    Please remember me in your prayers

    My brother visited him the other day to get a spare remote key made (for Rs. 8,000).

    There was a non starter prius that Javed was fixing, he claimed it was the 5th one that he was sorting out

    Suntech has 2 outlets:

    1- Gulberg 2 near Hico/7up/pepsi factory off guru mangat road (recommended) (fasih sb)
    042-35754598-9

    2- Peco road outlet (Junaid)
    0300 4427008


    also consider INH motors near LHR Airport- it is the most hitech workshop in Lahore (have lost their contact details) but i can give you direction on phone)
