    Try driving it with a lighter foot

    Clean battery vent

    Check the catalytic converter too whether its choked

    Also check Gear oil

    Use iridium 4 tip spark plugs instead of 2

    Try to regenerate more.
    Ie not braking hard at the last second, rather leave accelerator pedal and " Glideeeee ".

    Drive slowly.
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

    Get it checked by obd scanner. Sometimes its ECU malfunctions, get it reset, it may solve the problem.

    جب دودھ بازار سے مل جائے تو بھینس پالنے کی کیا ضرورت ہے.😜

    No need to waste money when checkup can be done and fault will be removed by mechanic.

    I think i bought the device for around 3.000

    A single trip to the mechanic
    If u get charged 1.000

    If u pay him 3 visits
    Bill 3.000

    So arent u better off having one

    Plus u might be on g.t road for instance and an error code turns on

    U can check urself and do something instead of paying the mechanic 5.000 to come and check it up in the middle of ur journey

    Prius mechanics are mostly in big cities like lhr, khr and isb etc

    So no big
    In my opinion its a wise investment having driven a prius from 2007

    Anyways comes down to personal choice

    Tolerance bro Tolerance

    by any means was ur car "water damaged" when came from japan,
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"
