    Default 11th Gen Corolla (Hornet): An Unlucky Affair

    Introducing Corolla GLi 1.3 (Super ECT)
    Asalamoalikum respected PakWheel members and guests.
    Alhamdolillah, Allah has blessed me with this brand new car after I let
    Viper go to its next handler and keeper, after a very satisfying experience of a little over four years. With blessing from Allah (S.W) and friends like you, I hope to make this is a no-nonsense, extremely informative and enjoyable thread just like Viper. This cannot be possible without your support, appreciation, critique, guidance, sharing and participation. So hop in, like and subscribe.

    But, the driving experience has not been anything more than average. The only aspect in which this car stands out (at the moment in Pakistan) is its shape.

    What do I know? I am just an old fool.

    For spark plugs, platinum plugs offer longer life than regular ones, and iridium plugs offer the longest service life, better than platinum plugs. Oh, and fancy dual/triple/quadruple electrode designs are BS too.

    However, it is the right of every car nut to waste their own money as they see fit. If you feel your ride needs these plugs to improve its performance, go for it by all means!

    Sometimes going up or down one step in the heat range might be needed due to local conditions, but generally, you are correct.

    Does it feel that consumption of 1.3 auto corolla is equivalent to 1.8 auto civic or 1.8 auto Altis in the city and even worse then a 1.8 civic // 1.8 Altis auto on the highway ??

    Just asking ...

    The real beauty of this car is that it has no problems with the speed- (and chassis) breakers that abound on Pakistani roads.

    Bro, if you compare 10th Gen Corolla and 11th Corolla side by side, you'll come to know that 10th Gen Corolla is lower than 11th Gen.
