    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.

    The 1.6 Altis would have been a sweet spot had there been a newer transmission type. IMC has just cut corners here to maximize profit. It would have been a much more capable car, which it still is.

    Some serious reforms are needed in our auto industry.
    Though all variants of corolla are value for money except XLI, but if one has budget he/she should opt Grande.

    Nope. They are fine. There's a phenomenon called "Chull". And it knows no boundaries no difference between new or old

    Did you use a light coating of anti-seize on the threads since these plugs can remain installed for a long time to prevent them from seizing in the head due to corrosion?

    Is that a "no" or a "what is anti-seize" look?

    Use something like this or equivalent, and remember to reduce the tightening torque by 15-20% from the specified value:
