    Default Carla - The Red Prius - aliusman420

    Salaam everyone.

    Presenting "Carla"

    So it's been quite a while since I bought the Prius but never got time to create a thread for it specifically, although shared its pics in several forums.
    It is a 2010 model, S-Touring Edition in Barcelona Red color, imported in end 2013 and with me since 16th January 2014.
    I bought it from one of the few reliable importers out there, that is, @Sharabhi a.k.a Shahzaib Rasheed bhai. The deal went real smooth, I saw the pics of the car on his Facebook page JDM Imports and called him up. After a bit of discussion, he sent me every possible detail he had of the vehicle even before I made any commitment to buy the car. The details were the original auction pictures, original Japan yard pictures with odometer pictures of the actual mileage, original auction sheet (which I got verified from my own person in Japan and it was as it is) and container unloading video and pictures. Some days later my friend who lives in Karachi and owns a Prius himself combined with all sorts of knowledge he has acquired about hybrids in his 2+ years of ownership, went and inspected the car and gave me the verdict that this is the car to go for. I made the token payment to Shahzaib bhai's friend here in Islamabad and after a day or two, the car got loaded on the truck and reached Islamabad in the next few days. When it arrived, I along with my mother went and took a test drive of the car and reached the decision of making the payment the same day. Some hours later we came with the pay order and took the delivery of the vehicle.
    I am well-aware of the JDMs that are being brought into Pakistan and this car is absolutely not like them, it is a class apart. When I was buying this car, many friends said me to buy a MarkX, a brand new Civic or a 2006-07 Mercedes C180 and even though they are good cars, I needed a car which looks good, drives good and is easy on my wallet, and Prius was the ultimate choice.
    Even being a 2010 model, the car feels brand new Masha Allah, the drive is highly comfortable, the road grip is far beyond the local sedans, high speed cornering is a piece of cake in this vehicle Alhamdulillah, and among all the other luxuries, it is fulfilling the one Prius is well-known for, it's fuel consumption
    I am in no way a hypermiler and many times I have to drive like a maniac while getting late for University or some friends gathering, and AC is on all the time, still the car fares far above than other cars like Civic or Altis. To be very honest, I cannot be more satisfied in another car after driving this beauty. Even though the price tag was higher than the so-called market price (of the accidental cars), the car is worth every penny I tell you.

    The colour deserves a ..
    How about It's mantinence and parts? What about It's mechanics or workshops?
    These are things which pull me away from Prius, coz I know no one would understand the Synergy Hybrid engine.

    How much did It cost you? Mind Pm'ing me or sharing here?

    Thx.
    Total cost breakdown:
    Initial token payment for freight charges: Rs. 18,000.
    Pay Order at time of delivery: Rs. 2,600,000.
    Registration cost: Rs. 45,000, however this was in January, the rates have significantly increased now.
    Total cost therefore is Rs. 2,663,000.
    Bought detailing stuff worth several thousands but does not count in the cost sadly
    Odometer reading when I got the car was 47,600 km.

    see the above post for the cost
    as far as maintenance is concerned, if you buy a good graded vehicle then just routine maintenance is required.
    other than that, all major workshops now work on Prius plus Toyota officially provides backup.
    Spare parts are available easily but are expensive!

    I know they work entirely different but, UPS also charges the battery and powers up when needed and prius too charges the the battery and uses it when driving.

    Spare parts are available easily but are expensive!
    You easily get the mechanics and parts for It in main cities.
    What about the other cities?
    What If you go to a domestic/smaller area and the car troubles there, what would you do then?
    That's where our PKDM take that edge.

    Like If you take the car to Northern areas, the car troubles there what would you do?
    You'll be left stranded, no choice but to call some help.

    rural areas mein koi bhi Japanese car mushkil hi chalay because of their low ride heights
    PKDMs are good in their own way but stand far behind JDMs.
    and to clear it all, I am not a PKDM hater, our new GLi AT is soon to be delivered In Shaa Allah.
