    Question Pre-Delivery Owner Actions for a Toyota Corolla GLi

    Suppose you are 2 months away from getting your vehicle delivered.

    I wanted to ask you people few questions as I would like to learn from your experience and expertise. If you feel any question is stupid, please do not be offended. In my opinion, the only stupid question is the one 'not asked'. :-)

    1) If the owner goes ahead an replaces the Euro Star tires with some good ones, will it void the warranty?

    2) Which other common actions render the warranty void?

    3) Can I drive on Euro Start too or they are just too bad and too unsafe to be on your car?

    4) Any responsibilities such as follow up calls with the dealership, documentation, etc which the owner should take care of or they should just take a nap at home till the delivery call is received?

    5) Which insurance company for comprehensive insurance is recommended if the owner would like to use Toyota Authorized Dealerships for vehicle maintenance?

    I will be grateful if you people can help me learning the answers to my above questions.

    My Friend, Congratulation for the New Car. -- Nothing beats the charm/happiness of driving a new ride from Showroom to Home.

    Now to your quires, since I got my corolla a year back for this I will like to suggest my experiences for you and the others.

    1) If the owner goes ahead an replaces the Euro Star tires with some good ones, will it void the warranty?
    1. Not voided if the rim size is same.

    2) Which other common actions render the warranty void?
    2. Oil other then Toyota's / vehicle wiring modification like adding additional lamps to it without the consent of Dealership

    3) Can I drive on Euro Start too or they are just too bad and too unsafe to be on your car?
    3. If the drive is within 40 - 50 Km's daily then I will suggest to drive them for initial 2-3 years, if more then 80 - 150 kms daily or alternative day then get them changed.
    Euro's are not bad, but the local tire market has better options for us.

    4) Any responsibilities such as follow up calls with the dealership, documentation, etc which the owner should take care of or they should just take a nap at home till the delivery call is received?

    4. No Nap Scene my friend, always take delivery of new car during the daylight time 11am - 12pm preferred. and check each and every corner and line of body carefully. where ever you feel doubt hold the receiving, until you get fully satisfied with the appearance of the car.

    5) Which insurance company for comprehensive insurance is recommended if the owner would like to use Toyota Authorized Dealerships for vehicle maintenance?

    I had 2 choices Adamjee and EFU - I picked EFU giving me Falcon-i Tracking system, Falcon-i stands as the best in Pakistan.

    Insurance ppl don't recommend to only go at 3S, it your choice, but for the warranty period you will have to stick with 3S.

    Even after warranty I will recommend to stay with 3S, yes we pay a lil more then the local market, but it worth killing the element of doubt.
    I am only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand..

    Kamran Sb.,

    Thank you for the wishes and a timely response on my question.

    I appreciate you taking the time out to address my queries. Thanks so much again! I will keep these things in mind. And yes, I am driving less than 40 km a day so I think now I can consider using Euro Stars too. However, The set of the Euro Stars + 15,000 gets a very good set of renowned manufacturer's product so not a bad deal. Thanks for your help!

    I would recommend changing euros also make sure you collect warranty book from dealer when collecting the car. Apart from this follow the advice give above. I would recommend getting the car registration done via the dealer once you inspect the car and it's all good to go.

    Thank you for your advice. I will go ahead and change tires right away. Please suggest why is getting the car registered through the dealer is preferred? I got a quote from the broker at my friend's showroom. His rate was 10,000 below what showroom would charge me to get my car registered.

    Thanks!

    Strange dealerships use there own agents but the price should not be that different. I would either register it myself or ask the dealer to do it because of easy and it being convenient. I did read however that government are trying to dealers to register cars before it leaves showroom to cut out middle men making premiums on the cars before changing ownership

    I booked my Altis 1.6 in October last year and was given delivery month of November. I remained in constant touch with IMC and dealership regarding prompt delivery of my car within committed time, but was never given any assurance of timely delivery of the same. Some one suggested to write an email to Toyota Japan with details of PBO, which I promptly did, to which Toyota Japan replied to my email, advising me that the matter of delivery pertained to IMC, so I better contacted them to ensure timely delivery. Toyota Japan also sent a copy of email to IMC. Call it coincidence or otherwise, I got call about dispatch of my Altis 1.6 from dealership within 2-3 days of writing that email to Toyota Japan. So, at times, things can work that way. Best of luck with your purchase.
