    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

    Actually it's not that bad either, provided that the installer is a pro.
    A percentage of thieves also exist who can't bypass trackers. Some cases exist in which cars get recovered with the help of tracker.

    Many people are using tracker installed cars without any issues. Just good luck and professional installer is needed.

    Congratulations. One year passed so quickly. Oct 1 is also an important date for me.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    10w-30 is better, though 20w-50 would also do no harm.

    Not even ONCE it felt like the car was giving up or struggling to its bits, went quite smooth all the way despite the fact that I was stuck behind some slowpokes because of whom I occasionally had to brake in-between an incline.
    The car went very smoothly even through the toughest curves where normally cars have to struggle to climb, I must say I am impressed and now can even take this car to Northern Areas In Shaa Allah.
    The Michelins have certainly improved the handling and grip otherwise before the tires changed I didn't even think of taking it up there on the crappy EuroStars.

    I had no plans to sell it but the friend is after me so I have agreed.
    Now once this gets sold I'm confused whether to go for Vezel or wait for the 10th Generation Civic but that seems a long way to go or not?

    10th gen civic will be surely worth the wait. But i guess it won't be launched before September 2016.
    Get Vezel for time being and then sell it for upgrading to Civic.

    Vezel will keep on losing its value till next two or years and will finally stand at a price of around 2 million.
