    Default 2014 Corolla 1.3 GLi AT - aliusman420

    So Alhamdulillah finally our brand new Corolla 1.3 GLi AT arrived today. Kindly do say Masha Allah
    We needed a family car and this new gorgeous Corolla recently launched which everyone fell in love with so we decided to go for it. As it would have been a general family use car we decided upon 1.3 GLi, initially we were planning to go for the manual one as had doubts about the automatic one, but after reading what our fellow @InNoCeNt_DeViL stated in his review of the test drive he took of GLi AT, our decision changed and we booked the automatic one. Due to the unstable security situation in Islamabad test drives are not being given.
    Date of booking on PBO was 19th August and car was delivered to us on 1st October.
    So far loving every bit of it, Alhamdulillah money well spent.
    It has put the critics to rethink their statement of the car being under-powered, Masha Allah the throttle response is very good.
    Currently the car is a Night Rider it is mainly being used in the second half of the day.
    So here go the reviews:
    1. Quick review from dealership to home Page 1 Post #3.

    2. Short review Page 4 Post #65.
    3. Daylight pics Page 4 Post #64.
    4. Slightly longer review Page 5 Post #96.

    5. Comparison with Lancer Page 6 Post #116.
    6. Brief comparison with Prius 1.8 Page 8 Post #145.
    7. Recent pictures Page 13 Post #253.
    8. First ever long journey of the car review along with pictures, Islamabad to Lahore via Motorway Page 18 Post #359.
    9. Extensive detailing session carried out on the car Page 22 Post #421.

    Stay tuned for more updates

    Flooring a new car is a must do...1 is very curious for doing it n the car is also very responsive at that time...but we should avoid due to its running

    Yes I try to avoid flooring it and stay as calm as possible but due to some idiots on the road have to do so.

    Don't rely on meter only take out average yourself also by filling up the tank n then checkout the kms travelled n amount of fuel consumed...

    The needle got below first quarter near E and car was around 20 km less than 400 km in that tank. Got fuel of 2000 and now will check how much it gets driven in this. I use both methods :p

    So today the car went through another test.
    Speedy driving on a diversion road, a very rough road with several bumps and potholes too.
    The car has not even clocked 500 km but I was in a hurry so had to do this.
    Even at speed in excess of 40 km/h on that very rough patch the car went very smooth Masha Allah, thoray se dhakkay were obvious but did not face any back-breaking bump within the vehicle.
    My Prius even gave several jhatkay when I drove it on this patch once at a very very slow speed, compared to that I was literally flying the Corolla over there.
    So from my side a 9.5/10 to this car on rough roads driving at speed.

    Fuel economy is improving too, with very heavy foot and sometimes light foot combined with getting stuck in traffic and hence driving in the first gear the Avg is showing 10.5 km/l. Pretty much fair for a brand new car to be honest.

    Also floored the car on Kashmir Highway, luckily the stretch was almost empty. Touched 150 km/h with quite ease and then immediately slowed down, sadly was driving alone and had no one to record the moment.

    Guys need to ask a question.
    Car has done around 480 km only till now but it's with us since more than a month.
    So do I need to take it for first inspection or not? Dealership people called up and said one month or 1000 km, whichever comes first.
    Also, what do they do in the first checkup? @InNoCeNt_DeViL kindly share your experience here

    Bro, i heard that Islamabad walay don't give your car documents. They keep your car original documents when you registered your car from them. Is this true?

    sir I take my Prius whenever we go to Monal because it goes and comes back flawlessly Alhamdulillah, pata bhi nahi chalta ke kab gaye aur aa gaye, even the AC is on the whole time, and wapsi ka safar to almost muft hota hai on electric motor
    Is it feasible for taking this GLi up there before the car clocks 1000 km? just curious.

    file stays permanently with ETO in Islamabad, and it is their responsibility for the protection of these documents.
