We know Toyoya is pioneer in hybrid tech and no matter what it will stay this way.

    No doubt Toyota is the abbu jee of Honda in Hybrid technology.
    But man this 4th Gen is ugly and no matter how good it is technically, that ugliness factor is still heavier than the good technical things for me, anyone else may differ in my opinion regarding its looks. It seems to be inspired by a mixture of lizard, fish and frog.

    After 3 years our roads will be having the new shape Prius,
    As far as Toyota hybrid system is concerned Honda can never compete it.

    I went to petrol pump for high octane and got my car full with it but it came back again after 30 kms
    next morning i went to dealership again and they told me it is because of oxygen sensor since you got bad petrol in it and this sensor is gone mad. You need to change its oxygen sensor. He also added " ap isay chalain aaa jata hai yeh fault toyota ki garion mai lakin gari apki band nahi hogi aur agr yeh chalty chalty off hoo gaya tau phir no worries lakin apni tassalli karna chahty hain tau karva lain change"
    They again repair it through diagnostic run and this time it came back after 60 kms.
    Well my car is in lahore now and if some one can tell me a good mechanic for it that would be great
    Thank you all
    You can send me details of mechanic on 03213646562
    your dealer mechanic is an idiot if he suggested you HOBC fuel to a "system too lean code" - System too lean code is triggered when the Long term fuel trims go more than +24%, this condition can be set by dirty MAF or a faulty AFR sensor in the exhaust or even a vacuum leak. A good diagnosis can solve it.

    Did you get any working proceeding and result from this dealer? or he just said - iss me haee aaktein daalein - and you said OK.


    Never do a battery terminal remove type reset on your car. this is not the 1980s anymore.

    toyota has patents for their hybrid drive design and its other versions too. Its pretty much impossible not to be breaking into a patent if you want to design a hybrid electric car.

    People mix it up and confuse it with CVT. The fact is: in longer run a CVT oil will ruin this gearbox
    PS: again and again i have been trying to convey this to all fellows earlier in this thread and others too. Please people PRIUS DOES NOT HAVE CVT.

    true

    and the oil in the gear unit is mostly employed for cooling the motors

    If they r used then maybe they r from japan

    As far as i know there is no way new rims from japan can even cost 52k a pair

    52k for a set is a far fetched idea

    Rims r not cheap in japan

    Be careful

    Yes u can get a trouble free 2012 in this range

    If u import urself u have more chances of getting a better deal

    Prius has good resale

    That doesnt mean it wont lose value

    Both r different things

    I hope u get the point

    In 6 months time i dont expect 2012 models to lose too much value

    Just dont end up buying G Touring or Solar Variant
    If u do then u will get a bigger duzz, as these lose more value, family buyers look for economical cars not feature loaded ones

    Hmmm well difficulty in resale is a misnomer and that losing 2-3 lacs was just a phase that lasted for 9 months Q4 2014 to Q2 2015

    Its much stable now

    Regarding the last part other members can comment

    Prius is amazing as a daily driver. Will save you a lot of fuel and is comfortable. But, forget about resale, after a year you will sell the same car for atleast a loss of 1 lakh+

    It doesn't have good resale atm because people are still afraid of hybrids and prefer to buy vehicles from their reliable sources. If fuel prices go higher, it's resale will definitely get better, if not, it won't. Prius is an amazing daily driver with a ground clearance issue, as for sale after 6 months... Won't sell too easily
