    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.

    And i'd like to add buying a grande will also make you suffer in terms of resale, and everytime you park it somewhere all you can do is pray that it doesn't disappear (is stolen).
    So why not buy a prius and enjoy it while you can.
    Agreed bro.

    I dint go into all the pros and cons. The guy mentioned that the fuel savings advantage is none, so i only argued against it

Even if i had to go to highway i would not be taking my prius as the roads condition are worse then karachi and we all know the road clearance problem in prius.
    My prius does not give me more then18km/l even if i drive it with a very light foot and if i drive it like my other cars then it gives me 14km/l. What the use of buying a 1800cc car when we have to drive it like a gadha gari.
    in my opinion 2nd generation prius was a ideal car for pakistan which was priced arround 1.6million. It was in the bugdet of many people who could choose between prius and gli. But now we have to choose between grande and prius. 80% of people will go for zero meter grande coz of its stylish design and it only lacks in climate controll others there is no luxirious feature in prius as compared to grande.
    Sir apko evaluate krna chahiye tha na ye sub.

    agr meri running he day ki 10 kms hai tu kya faida hybrid ka

Still, yes it is your choice and your property and you are liable to act upon as you may find fit. Still I remain unclear with the facts that why treat it as a infant in a walker while it should be treated as any other car. Being hybrid isn't really a reason of saving it from puddles, thunderstorms, desert Strom.
    Or calling in office saying I can't be there today as there are chances on rain and I drive a Prius. Guess as I was leaning more towards the grande I'll carry on with it. Because I'm not a person who would unroll a tissue paper and drive over it so my ride don't have to sweat it out.





    Sure, exactly. The love of vehicles, the actual love for the car and the relation ship a owner builts up with it is always there even with a 1972 corolla or this. Still that doesn't mean that have to be more careful with the vehicle to show the love just because you might break it in half or electrocute it. All I was saying was why more special why more gentle? Is it true if u take it out with out an umbrella you won't be coming back home soon? I don't think so.




    Forgot about the maintenance. And yes, if you break something that on the minus as well because I guess the spare parts are on the heavy side of the wallet.
    Other then that pretty logical calculation that is.



    Yeah, that. Indeed a good point. I would love to add that how many other cars are there which I know are there that they actually give out same kind of milage without being hybrid. And top of that you can leave them in a car park without calculating milage while being on lift on your way to office being late and explaining why you were driving with a light foot saving them milage points.

    Bro the arguement was only based on the fuel savings advantage of a Hybrid vs the resale power of a rolla.
    Thus the calculations

    Everyone loves their loved ones in different ways bro

    I do understand that. Still hard to understand the fuel saving advantage of a hybrid is equal to the mileage given by any other car not being a hybrid.

    Sir this is awesome stuff !!

    No doubt Prius' fuel savings

    I was just comparing it with the resale mentality of our "resale awaam".
    Like for example if i keep a Prius for 2 years, i ll be facing around Rs. 200,000 loss when i decide to sell it.
    However a rolla will sell for almost the same price.

    P.S. Cannot view your second post

    I got all of the stuff in the pic from @ahmad_yar bhai other than the 3M glass cleaner, Meguiars Ultimate Polish and Meguiars Quik Wax.
    The MF cloth pack of 3 costs 900 from Ahmad bhai, in Islamabad market rate of MF cloth one piece is Rs. 550.
    As for the swirls, Meguiars Ultimate Polish can cure them a bit otherwise there is product dedicated to cure swirls. Post your query in the Detailing thread the experts can guide you much better on this issue.
