    Default My one of its kind Altis 2010

    hi guys I introduce you to my 2010 altis curisetronic SR. what makes it special that i have ensured it remains in the best condition of its kind and to this day has only been driven less than 9k km. this thread will be a refresher what a new 10th gen corolla was like plus its actually the car i have owned for the longest time but i never made a thread for it.

    In this thread i will be recalling the whole history including the reasons that made us choose this brand new car originally in 2010 as well as recent modifications and maintenance record and some comparisons with the models sold today if imagining that this one was present new today. it will be intreating to see a comparison on how much Pakistani car industry has moved forward as well if it has taken any backward steps or not.


    so chime in with your views and suggestions as well as scepticism and criticism

    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Btw the car was not garaged but was kept continuously running on a 2km route once a week to keep everything lubricated and in good mechanical order as well as to keep the battery charged
    More on how it was driven I'll be sharing later

    nice ride bro
    9k in 5 years is nothing
    use it bro as it will be counted as a gli (in price) when you will sell it. you know paki people's mentality !
    btw black is too hard to maintain but you have kept her in top notch condition

    But cars are meant to be driven......not to be show cased for 5 years or 10 years or something. what is the point of buying a car if you are gona drive only 10k km in 5 years???? remember, these things are meant to serve us...not other way around. Baat to tab hay when you drive it for 100k in 5 years and still have the same condition. I hope you got my point. Good luck to you and your car.

    Car has been kept at home for 5 yrs. Wow i am unable to comprehend the reason for keeping in garage if it was not to be used. It should have been around 40k atleast to qualify for normal running car. No doubt a car less driven will be in excellent condition but can't fetch good amount when sold . Enjoy and keep for 3 yrs at least to drive it

    True brother cars are meant to be driven, I agree and I do own and maintain another car which is 144k driven and 13 years old you can see my Mercedes thread so it's not that I don't need to maintain this car I'll update the thread shortly for the reason behind why it's less driven and why that doesn't matter

    I intend it to keep it for at least another 10 years
    Right now it's used as a fifth car in the house slowly as its ages it'll keep being demoted and being used more until finally after like 8-10 years I'll sell it I don't care how much it's fetches or what's the resale as it's not my concern

    Default My one of its kind Altis 2010

    So guys here's the deal

    This car was bought brand new from Toyota central motors Karachi in 2010 when I was 15, obviously I coudnt own it then nor could I drive it as no license but it was bought with the perspective that's it's going to be my car in the future.

    So when it was brought home no one was allowed to drive it and only I drove it round them on some private property and enclosed private roads in a compound or very occasionally my father drove and take me somewhere

    It did 200 km in first year and arguably I wound think it was in the worst condition this way as I didn't know detailing and such little use doesn't actually do the car much favours mechanically like if you don't do oil changes in time sludge car build up

    Then we started taking it only on long journeys never in city went to gawadar in it it clocked most milage then after wards similar non use story and I think like most people are saying no big deal and actually it's better for the car to be driven they are right

    Then we shifted to Pindi and car was transported by the same transporters who do for Dewan and shahnawaz and again similar story it was being used once few months on motorways

    Then once I had license and got to Lahore things changed and I was fully in charge car clocked 4000 km in two years and this number steadily increases, detailing started and more attention to detail mechanically like fully synergetic Mobil 1 oil and changing tyres thrice even though 8000 km driven as they used to get flat spots from standing

    Now it's going to gets it fair share of use but still no more than 2000 km a year as now I have another car to maintain and I own that one now but still no one else drives this


    The point of all this is not to boast about its condition or about its low mileage point is having three corollas in the house of various generations whenever i get in this near new vehicle the atmosphere and drive is still better than any other Gen personally and even though it's old maintaining it this way keeps it fresh and puts a smile on the face

    I don't use it because I don't have to don't need to why do it keep it because I love maintaining cars and detailing when s car is kept in huge if conditions and never sees the rain or dust detailing black color is a dream without drawbacks and super easy to do

    I am not keeping it so that it appreciates in value it won't but just as a excercise and a young person can enjoy a perfectly loaded and s car tha doesn't age but no one notices or objects like they would if they maybe saw them in a grande or a latest civic

    Unique it is indeed,,,,,not because its less driven and shining like a north star,,,,,but due to the fact that the time when it came under your possession,,,,excitement would be the most precious thing,,,,,memories attached with events are always more precious,,,we usually see the shallow details of material,,,,so question arise whats the use of a vehicle,,,,,why its being served so well,,,,when not driven,,,,somethings are beyond monetary values,,,,,,even u got an offer,,,,thats the height of it,,,,,usually theme of a thread is ignored,,,,its essence is killed by dealing in currency,,,lastly feast for my eyes to watch an altis so clean whenever wherever,,,God be with you always,,,,
