    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.

    NXT
    Next day wipe your ride with quik detailer and another coat of NXT
    DO interior with interior detailer & tires with Endurance gel

    I silently follow many threads and surely your ex-Steermatic was one of a kind in your ownership!
    just one question, which polish should I use before NXT?

    get new spark plugs and throttle body serviced along with Liqui Moly engine oil and get the original air filter cleaned if its in okay condition otherwise get a genuine one, do not compromise on maintenance parts.
    besides, Prius has to be driven differently than other cars, it has specific driving methods. Search on Google about how to maximize the efficiency of Prius and visit PriusChat forums too.
    when i floor it for a long while, I manage around 15 km/l and when I drive it peacefully, the average is around 18-20 km/l. AC is on all the time, even when the car is parked somewhere and people are inside.

    very good car.

    I recently have an experience of driving PRIUS 2011 for about 250 kilometers (that included local and motorway) and I would say, it was a very good experience.
    The brakes are extremely good.
    The Handling is also good.
    The power (when you switch to Power Mode) is very good.
    I won't talk about the fuel average as every one knows about it.

    There aren't any Chargers but there are Dodge Dart, some Plymouth cars and Mustangs and Chevys are abundant.
    In city the best I have achieved is 20 km/l including a drive to Monal and back and only have taken it twice on Motorway to Chakwal the average stayed in the 20-22 km/l range most of the time.
    MarkX is a very good car but keeping it as a daily driver being a university student is just more burden you put on your parents.
