    Default Corolla Altis VVTi 1.8 Feedback Please

    Hello everybody,

    Being a lover of fast cars, I am considering to buy an Altis. I recently purchased my new XLi but am not satisfied with it's pickup.

    I know that Altis is not as fast item as Saloon or GLi/XLi but would like to know about:

    1. Its pickup ... acceleration
    2. Braking
    3. Handling, specially above 120 KM/Hr
    4. Suspension response on bumpy roads (I have found that the suspension of my XLi is not that superior and seems to be transferring the jerks on to the person onboard).

    Any feedback in this regard based on live experience would be highly appreciated!

    Regards.
    .

    Altis is not noiser at high RPMS.
    Its sexier at higher RPMS. That sound is an addiction to the driver.
    If you walk away from your car and don't look back, you have bought the wrong car.

    one year old stuff... and u still wanna race!
    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"

    Hi, I am using Altis since 2005. Vgood acceleration but who says its the fastest local car?????? many cars overtake me on motorway at my TOPSPEED which is limited to 180 due to a limiter in it. it is fast if you can get rid of the original limiter.
    To all the extreme drivers, please come offroad like ME to keep others safe on the roads.

    The new civic might SMOKE the altis in interior and exterior but it definitely can't SMOKE the altis in a drag as put forward by the SMOKING comparison between their specs ! compare there power to weight ratios and u'll see !

    Salaam.

    Poor naive kidz...

    1.8 Auto Civic beats 1.8 Manual Altis in a drag...

    1.8 civic can actually literally smoke an Altis--dude I got the ALtis A/T and its quality suqs, the only good in the Altis is the engine pickup and cockpit--otherwise its horrible...so dont buy it, a used Vti is bettr. 1.8 Vtec eats Altis Vvti.

    Civic got dual SRS, 5 speed auto trans. , EBD and bigger space/engine/specs...so much more.


    But about the Altis, it has low engine noise and nice pickup but Im afraid of the brakes and controls cuz once I used the brakes on normal speed/power but the car decided not to stop even with ABS and shifting from D to 2 (auto trans. ). This forced me into my first frontal accident due to the car, not me! Otherwise, the car I have driven to 190km/h on motorway with only the steering wheel vibrating like a Fx taxi.

    Go for Honda or Mitsubishi, perhaps Nissan but NEVER ATTEMPT TO PURCHASE A TOYOTA, ESPECIALLY THE LOCAL ONES...THEY SUCK LIKE HELLL!
