Now a days his car is giving him serious problems. He is unable to start the car in the morning, have to jump start it, he has changed the 12v battery, but no use. Also his car does not run with air conditioner, does not accelerate well, because high voltage battery is not working. He is trying to find out a new battery, somebody is offering him to import a used battery for Rs 1,50000. He is well aware of places in karachi as well as in Islamabad. But still he failed to replace his car's high voltage batteries. Due to Eid getting nearer, now he is forced to buy new city, I took him to Honda centre and showed him the new city, he is still thinking on tat. Should I buy 2007 Prius after all this going on in front of me. NEVER........

    And talking about the luxuries the new car, then why not opt for new civic, or any upmodel luxury car without hybrid system. Why a person should care about 1 or 2 lac of saving in 7 years when he is spending 17 to 19 lac on luxuries and things like tat.
    jump start the hybrid ....u cant jump start the hybrid at all...it will destroy ur hybrid batteries n other electrical parts!!

    That is because they change there cars usually after 5 years. And for those 5 years these cars are really economical. And then they get almost same resale price as much they get with usual non-hybrid cars, as we fools buy there used cars. Thats why i said earler that hybrids would be good for us if we were also be able to buy brand new hybrids. but this is not possible here in paksiatan. And due to two systems together, the electric and the gasoline engine, would make your life nightmare, when the engine parts of these cars will go old. So in the long run you are going to loose alot....

    The reason for success of Prius is not just that which you mentioned, Prius is there since 2000 and millions of Prius have been sold whereas its total import in Pakistan would be not more than few thousand(not more than 4 to 5000 so far) and that too in last one year, before that it was almost negligible. It is the car's technology and reliability which has made it so popular.

    Yes you can, My colleague does it daily. Atleast till the day he gets his prius's high voltage batteries replaced. What I understood from these experiences is that, no doubt this new technology is great, its very very fuel efficient, BUT THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO GET THERE BATTERIES REPLACED AFTER COUPLE OF THOUSAND MILES. This technology would have been also very beneficial for us, if we were getting these cars as brand new. But they have already passed there glorius time and now they are at the brink of there period when lots of things need replacement, thats why they start selling it. (WELL THAT IS WHAT I THINK, AND I KNOW MANY PEOPLE, SPECIALLY PRIUS OWNERS WOULD NOT LIKE TO AGREE WITH ME)

    for all those chanting high sales.. In the US market which apparently is a good market for Prius - Toyota dealers have a hard time getting it off the showroom floor while the VW diesel Golfs, Jettas and Passats are commanding a premium (OWN). Why do you think that is happening. btw diesel is the most expensive fuel in the US.

    SIMPLE - The nightmarish costs of repairing a Prius when it runs out of warranty. Trans blows out - DONE 3000 dollars plus Hybrid Vehicle mechanic labor please, as the car does not work anymore its only USD 480/- at the junkyard and the owner has to remove the batteries, refrigerant and fuel first - If they cannot its another USD 200/- - so you get USD 280/- in return. OR you can pay to fix it up. Most people dont have that money and just get a new car on financing.

    The Hybrid buying bunch here use these cars as tissue paper and get rid of them in 3 to 5 years. Then buy a new one - just to stay in the company's warranty period.

    for kicks
