    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.

    Car is considerably cooler from inside the cabin as well as the outside
    And the Seger horn is quite good, not too loud or absurd, close to the OEM ones which come in Accord or BMWs.

    A lot of love goes to this babe that's why it's still shining even after almost 1 year of use Alhamdulillah
    People who own this color need to know that this color demands a lot of care and attention otherwise it will go bust in no time.

    U may go ahead with it but local pkdm is no way near jdm.
    Local cars especially new corolla has low quality paint on door jams and door sills areas (dunno the proper name to that)
    Quality of plastic is poor. It easily fades away in a matter of weeks.

    And please don't compare altis with prius. Prius is hybrid and the fun of driving a hybrid is :thumbup::thumbup:

    Prius ka issue yehi hai that's the spares r expensive, and support is not widely available like that of local manufactured cars.

    still.............why get a used, sprayed car when you can get a new one
    I have a new civic. Had a corolla before that. Maybe it's just me. I don't buy used car. Never bought one. Will never buy one. but then......that's just me

    no matter how good this gets. Still cannot beat a total genuine brand new car off a showroom floor.

    Default Carla - The Red Prius - aliusman420

    Comparison of brand new PKDM and used JDM is not valid, both cars are of separate league. We have the 11th Gen Corolla GLi AT as well, bought brand new, and the Lancer we have was also bought zero meter. This car is my personal choice and I find it wayyy better than local PKDMs, I have mentioned this thing in original post as well that I had open option of going for anything in the 2.7 million price bracket including a brand new Civic but I traveled in it prior to buying this car and it did not appeal me at all, this car with 17" alloys and Touring suspension is still way softer than Civic on 15" rims, comfort and Honda are two separate things in my opinion.

    Prices of Prius spares are gradually decreasing. The side mirror which was for 25k at the start of 2014 is now for 15k, tail light of 3rd Gen is also for 15k now and this is asking price. Sitting in Prius makes you feel like sitting in a hotel room with very pleasant ambience and while the 11th Gen Corolla isn't bad either but it is not even close to Prius in several ways.

    Bro, you haven't tried a clean JDM that's why you are saying it. I have a 9th gen civic and several JDMs with me. No doubt that civic is new and a great car to drive but still lacks the premium finish that we see in JDMs. A clean JDM looks and feels new and never dies ( they are my workhorse for upto 5 years now )
    Rest it's your money and your choice. Lastly, 3rd gen Prius is a beauty, the premium cabin finish, comfort and safety features are still unbeatable by any local sedan. I will be getting one in this month InshAllah just still a little bit confused between Grande and this

    Thank you bro!
    Mileage with light foot and peaceful driving is from 18-20 km/l local while with very heavy foot does not go below 15 km/l.
    On Motorway it went up to 24.5 km/l with Cruise Control activated at 110 km/h.
