    Thanks bro. Yes the owner got it installed from toyota as it is mentioned in the auction sheet. It will be loaded on coming Friday and will take around a month to reach here. My friend has bought the fog lights for it which he will send to me. I also got some other goodies for it that I will share later when I get those

    it means you have the enough time to spend your time in CNG lines for 2-3 hrz, lol. petrol is available every where, and for cng.......! I think that you waste 1 hr to fill your cng cylinder, its better that you drive your car on patrol.

    Zeeshan Gims, it's all about mind set of different people. Have you ever seen a person wearing dhoti banyan and having dinner in a Sarena/ PC on the floor ? That is a luxury place with superb dinner but he don't know how to live a luxury or comfortable life. ..

    I felt that you are standing in the same line, You can buy a USED Mercedez and you can fit CNG in that, that's cool, and you're time is also not that much important and you can wait for hours at CNG station, that awesome. I would like to see your face once when you'll be in line of CNG in your USED Mercedez Benz and when it comes your turn and light went off . Then really want to see your luxury car with luxury attitude. And tell me this, if you can buy a USED Mercedez then why you can't buy a USED Prius ?
    And I am also sure that you'll have a Honda CD 70 or Honda CG 125 to use during the load shedding of CNG because any person who is using CNG in his luxury car will die if he has to drive his car on Petrol.

    I guess it is better to have a Prius and use it without any tension rather then using 4 days motor bike and 3 days Mercedez Benz

    I hope you'll think before you'll speak anything for any of Prius fan club member.

    Happy Ride of USED MERCEDEZ BENZ with CNG and with Your Motor Bike MR. Zeeshan.

    One of my friend was always telling me that these mirrors get stole if you don't retrace them. I wish you could be able buy a new one on cheap price.

    W salam,

    Mine is also giving me around 14.5 km/liter - 15.5 km/liter with ac in the city. I have bought it a month ago and I was thinking the same thing which you asked here. I guess we should test it again without ac for around 5 liter of petrol and check the average. Second thing which I am feeling is that when I drive it in Lahore on wide roads where I don't have to stop my car after every 1 minute it will give me more average rather then in stupid kind of traffic of Faisalabad. My car is giving me around 25 km/liter on motor way at the speed of 82 km/hour.

    what is your thoughts on it ?

    @usmanuetian I have talked to Indus about this, they are not going to launch it since it's cost is too high.

    put spacers in the back and you will feel the difference. The suspension of Prius is same as Gli, xli so ready made spacers are easily available.

    Don't worry about the mileage, it is affected by hot weather and driving conditions. you will see it will improve as the weather gets colder.

    Hey everyone. We recently bought a Prius 2010 1.8L S package. It is a fabulous ride I mean drive, power, comfort everything is so amazing. I haven't heard from any one but the other day an uncle said to my dad that battery replacement for prius is around 2.5-3 lacs. We were very disappointed after hearing this. However i finally decided to put up a thread so that I can gain some expert views about battery replacement and its cost and that is it true? Please help in this regard. Although it is originally 53000 Km driven but one day it will be 150,000 Km when we will have to change the batteries.

    Looking forward for the replies

    in hot weather the average of every car deteriorates. The hot air is thin and carries lesser oxygen. This effects the air to fuel mixture, thus the efficiency reduces.

    In case of hybrids in hotter climate the performance of the batteries deteriorates, it's charge retention reduces so it provides lesser input to move the car. so this plus the inefficiency of engine effects the overall average.

    You do not need to worry about the batteries these don't fail that easily. In the international market, Toyota warrants the batteries for 300000km or 8years (which ever occurs first). This was for the 2007 2008 models. in 2009 plus models the batteries are even improved. Also the price you mentioned is for the new batteries. I heard that refurbished batteries are also availalbe at around 100000

    Correct, As hsnmz is saying, I am not sure about the 3rd generation but I have seen Kabli batteries in Bilal ganj for Rs 50k with one week guarantee. and after a year Prius will save you enough money on petrol to bear all the expenses you have to spend on it. Just cheers and enjoy your new ride. I really love the 3rd generation and perhaps I'll sell mine to have that one.

    Thanks for explaining it. One like for you

    thanks for explaining the hot weather scene of which i was unaware hsnmz


    and as far as driving without ac is concerned i dnt usually drive it all time with ac most of the times in mornings i drive without ac on my way to my uni which is almost 30 kms away frm my home. and i guess it thus effect the millage bt very less.
    now em also facing the same issue of ground clearance so i put spaces of 2.5" which after adjustment will b around 2.0" its doesn't effects the handling or whats so ever.
    still looking forward to more views of other fellow members on this issues
    regards
    umar
