    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.

    Thanks for posting, that's pretty decent mileage for an auto. Now would you share the laden weight of your car mentioned in your invoice. Regards
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    All you need is a few more stickers, and a spoiler on the trunk, and you will be ready to take off. And pink fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror.

    All I need is a Saleem Beeree and even then I'll take off high into the clouds. Why take the pain of all those stickers and a fuzzy pink dice
