    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.

    Sold GLi due to its hideous wheel arch gap and lack of driving pleasure. ...
    Downgraded to a Vitz instead. ..(with a painfully slow CVT and a struggling noisy engine)
    I find it quite amusing
    sent from my HD2 without using the handset itself!!

    And saved more or less half a million. There is something called value for money.

    He wasn't trying to save money. Otherwise would not have gone for GLi in the first place.

    It is, actually. Driving pleasure does not necessarily come from higher displacement engines and stone aged 4-speed AT. My pleasure may come from a donkey cart as long as it's pleasing lolz.

    Harris is right to a great degree. You see being able to retain major portion of your hard earned money from depreciation and save up for something has its own course of actions. Mine was the Vitz way. Bhai middle / working class admi hoon Alhamdolillah. Have to save up all my life. I made a mistake in case of GLi and vowed never to repeat the same mistake twice. Did my homework and got help from many other friends like you brothers but at the end of the day I knew it was gonna be my call.

    Bilal, the concerns that you have are undeniably justified and I second you. But please try to understand why I bought a Vitz. It's been discussed a number of times. The Vitz may not have the flair, styling, engine sound and engine displacement as the new Corolla but this isn't about comparing the two either. They cannot be and should never be.
    The Vitz is a temporary phase till I pool up more budget to get a decent car or SUV/Mini SUV. It may either be traded in later or retained as a secondary car in the house Inshallah. Till then join in and enjoy watching us nerds play and tinker with our rides. That's what Pakwheels is about.

    Congrats dear.
    May it serve the purpose and you enjoy your ride and life. Just one suggestion, please treat it as it's the only car you HAVE, don't think of future ride as you won't enjoy present and will always miss something.

    May Allah bless you more.

    Btw do share vits pros and cons, as one of my friend intends to buy one and before your buy I always had a feeling that its an excellent car but looking at some of our senior member comments, it looks it's not all gold.

    Inshallah, that's what's on the cards right now. Buying and ownership of the car will be covered adequately while carrying out parallel comparison with PKDM options with special focus on the value for money. Hope to be as realistic and accurate as possible.

    Vitz is an excellent car for getting from point A to B in comfort and economy.
    The fit, finish and quality of materials is also well upto mark.
    That's all.

    I have a '12 Vitz in my porch so its all 1st hand experience.

    @KamranAslam
    Please close the thread since I won't be able to keep it running due to two very active threads in the Toyota Vitz Section. I am thankful to all who have participated here, given their valuable suggestions and those who may have benefited in any way.

    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
