    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.

    It was on the cards also, tried it out but for the money it was not worth it, plus I'm praying, hoping and waiting for the 10th Gen Civic (Inshallah). Till then this was the best bet. Of course I could have hung on more to the Hornet but trust me the mind does strange things to you, unimaginable and unpredictable sometimes.

    Ji bilkul Nabeel. This identity crisis was eating me up from within. Wasn't sure and while the GLi Auto is not an overall bad car, infact it's a very nice one to be very honest but the kind of dumb a$$, that I am, it was getting unbearable for me. I'm happy from day one with the Vitz.

    I'll explain in detail in the next thread or in person. In order to remain mainstream till the next car, this had to happen. While it may have been totally unnecessary for some, but the fact that an unhappy or unsatisfied mind bugs you more than the problem itself, I thought it best to let go and move on.

    Had that been the case, I would have brought home a Swift at a much cheaper price tag. Don't get me wrong, I like the car Swift. Aside from the take off stance and cramped interior which are not necessarily serious deal breaking issues, I dig the hatchback. Alas in our country, there is no respect of a nice person and no resale of a nicer car.

    Some members even some seniors are tooo keen to impose their own liking / point of view about what is right or wrong .. downgrade or upgrade

    Preferences vary , even liking disliking vary from person to person. It is that subjective.

    Congrats on the New Car Sir. Vitz is beautiful ...

    Indeed fouadbakht bhai, the keerra when enters the mind of a petrol head then it never leaves easily. I 100% understand your problem. Sakoon hona chahiye bus zindagi mai.
    And I can tell you from my own personal experience that you have not wasted a single dim on Vitz. It may lack the required power but has amazing handling and comfort; the braking and suspension ( balanced nicely between hardness and softness) of it is really good. Moreover it will address the handling problem that you were facing with GLI because it's steering responds when desired
    And will glad to help you if you face any problem regarding vitz
