    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.

    1. Recent Islamabad pictures Page 1.
    2. Fuel average 20 km/l over 145 km Page 2.

    this thread has 7 pages where everyone including die hard Honda fans have praised this car and then one has to differ.
    too much attention-seeking maybe?

    A new Corolla and with rest of the money petrol for next 10 years. And pretty sure you will end up selling this within a year. Mind you the price of batteries for these cars.

    Love the color.Masha Allah.Nice choice.
    Try to reach 22km/l on full tank.
    It should give you better average in city compared to highway.

    Thanks a lot brother!
    Yes it is meant for local in-city driving, the thing is many times I do not travel alone, I do with friends or family, so AC is always on in any case and can't hypermile with passengers in the car as it is time-consuming.
    Still Alhamdulillah the car fares a lot, I am totally satisfied Alhamdulillah

    Double bucket method is very simple,1 bucket with clean water and 2nd bucket with shampoo/water solution, from shampoo bucket you MF will go to ride and will come back to clean water bucket and than again to shampoo bucket, maintain this cycle, you can also youtube it for better understanding
    NXT is very good wax no need to buy Ultimate wax
    Just buy clay bar and use it according to instruction, clay bar is the main thing to start with & it will make your ride surface smooth

    1----Wash your ride
    2---- Clay bar it according to instruction, you can watch demo on Google/you tube
    3---- Again wash your ride and produce to next step which is polishing.
