    Angry Poor Standard of Toyota Corolla

    Hi,

    I am shocked to see the standard of Indus Motors produced cars, which has dropped to even deeper levels. The current model of Toyota Corolla is an example of that. I bought Corolla 1.6. Automatic Gun Mettalic Colour this March (2012). From the very begining I was taken aback when I saw that the wiring in the engine compartment had no proper ducting, NITTO wiring tape has been used to cover the wires. And that tape too is unwinding with use.

    Now I have noticed that the the toyota monograms have started to show signs of rust!!!! Can't believe it.

    It is worth mentioning here that Toyota is not giving many features that earlier it used to give like alloy rims, fog lights, fenders, etc. are only being offered in ALTIS. Not even in 1.6. GLi Auto. I am ok with that too, but atleast the quality should be maintained.

    Its not rust, its because of so called "nammi" humidity, it can occur in a million dollar car to if not maintained, Its not any car companies fault.

    The options your talking about never came in Gli, Alloys, fog lamps were limited to Altis only.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    I know they never came in Gli, I am fine with that, my point is that quality should be maintained. And secondly my car is well maintained. Thirdly, let alone a million dollar car, this kind of rust is still not visible on our 2000 model 2.0D corolla (12years old)! which is appearing on this model in few months.

    ^ I guess the owner does wash the car in atleast once awhile with water, so i guess you now know where does the nammi comes from
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    To me the problem he has mentioned may sound insignificant to some of us but it does break someone's heart who has brought a new car with all the excitement and eagerness, not to mention long wait for the delivery. Any car lover will be hurt on seeing this happen to his car so early after owning it.

    @Javvad1. My sympathies are with you on this. Can you also upload a few pictures of wiring of engine compartment that you mentioned have been done with nitto tape? Thanks.
