    Angry Declining Quality of Corolla

    I have purchase Corolla for less than a year (2015 model) and the chrome plating on monograms has started rusting (see the attached photos). I suspect if that is happening to exterior parts, the engine and internal parts are corroding as well.

    I talked with Toyota distributor from where I purchased the Corolla and he said it is because where you park the car and it can be removed by polishing. My question is, did I pay more than Rs. 1.7M for such a low quality? I have used cars outside of Pakistan with no such issues even parked outside everyday and assume the imported (Japanese) Toyota in Pakistan also have no such issues.

    The Toyota Pakistan is indeed getting cheap and low quality with time!

    do you live in Karachi?? - have you seen humidity levels here? at some times its like you swim in air, and this chap who owns this car lives on the seaside, where every metal object oxidises to death due to the salt being deposited on it.

    Now unless you dont know how salt helps oxidise metals then that can be helped too.

    And do not tell we pay less. We pay a premium money for crap that our local manufacturers are selling us. If prices are may be lower than international market, that's because these "new cars" lack several features. Where is immobilizer in rolla? Cheap pig iron is use to make the body of these "desi" assembled cars.

    pig iron bodied corolla??

    can I have a panadol please??

    And still you bought two!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In cars' world lighter is better, heavier is bad. All car makers are losing their sleep over weight reduction. They advertise reduced weight for their new models as a selling point.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Someone threw a stone or hit something on our corolla, this is I think a 2013 model. Anyways it was a 1 inch spot on the rear right top panel the one behind the door. As you have said, I think 2-3 days was all that was needed to see it rust!
