    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

    Exactly my point! I went to Nathiagali in summer 2015 and saw plenty of GLi AT up there traveling with ease, some even overtook me on my otherwise 1.8L 134 hp car

    You may have found Suzuki FXs, Mehrans and 800 cc Bolans and Ravis up there too pulling more than two dozens of people over there
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    I have seen sometimes civic drivers struggling on hills while mehrans flying.It depends on driver more than car on hill drives.For example father kept the car in higher gear around inclines so it would struggle to get to top where I would keep revs in engine power band by keeping gears low.That way power always available when incline comes.
    In Auto cars same could be done by keeping car in L or 2 according to incline.

    Main thing is you need a wash & wax shampoo, a good sealant, a carnauba and a synthetic wax, trim protectant, tire gel, all purpose cleaner, interior cleaner and detailer, upholstery shampoo, glass cleaner, lots of microfibre towels and a microfibre wash mitt.

    Damn, that is allot of products. Mine is black too but manual. The car looks stunning when clean. Fog lights with fake chrome should be installed if the new Corolla is black, I think. It makes up for the lesser amount of chrome in the lower front. So, I don't wash the car myself and it is washed using 'Surf' lol No swirls for now. The only problem is the appearance of nail marks on and around door handles. Any solution for that NUSTian?

    Go for silver if you aren't sure about the common white. I would suggest you to choose lighter colors. Since the car is pretty big and washing it is hard work. After washing, waxing might as well be taking as your weekly exercise. Stick to light colors. You can be care free and will have peace of mind. Cars with lighter colors sell better too, since faults and imperfections are easily visible in darker colors.

    Super white and Silver.

    Rest is your choice, brother. If you have a driver then black is fine.

    I have a 2015 Corolla, Gli, manual, black.

    Are you serious or kidding about the 'SURF' part?
    If ure serious, may GOD have mercy on you and the car both. Surf is a big NOOOO for washing cars. You will ruin it in less than half the time. The paint will wear off. Nail marks and minute scratches are only because of the same reason because Surf has acidic properties for car paint and makes it rough and unprotected. Atleast use a car shampoo and protect the surface with a wax. Anyway it's your choice if you want to ruin your own car bought from your own money.
    But generally: Surf is a Sin for any slightly sensible car owner.

    The left part in the picture is what happens to black if not treated properly unlike the right part. Maybe even paint's clear coat failure which is worse can take place with laundry detergents in longer run

    Haha Yes, I am serious. Been doing it to my SWIFT since day 1. The paint is just fine; its been 5 years. But, the SWIFT is grey. This black Corolla though is pretty hard to maintain. I am planning to shift now to car shampoo. Let's say if I don't have it. Can I make it at home using a normal shampoo? Or that is stupid? lol Sorry, I don't know. Require your suggestions . How much car shampoo do I put in how much water in a bucket?

    Here is a thread on how to maintain the looks of your car. You will find loads of stuff and suggestions here.
    But since it seems like you will be a starter for such stuff. I would suggest get started with any good "wash n wax" shampoo. Even basic ones like formula1 should do the job. If not much atleast once a month wax your car with any thing starting from basic good ones such as Formula1 Premium (black) series. Later you can start switching to more expensive stuff like maybe Meguairs or Turtle ICE series.
    But trust me you will feel the difference of such pampering on your cars. And get addicted to keeping them protected and sparkling

    And you might think your gray swift is fine. But get it detailed once and you will for sure know that it was in a poor condition. Since you don't seem to have experienced what a detailed car should be, that is only why you think its fine because you haven't done the comparison yet.
