    Default Poor quality of 11th Generation Toyota Corolla 2016

    I bought a Toyota Corolla Gli in Feb 2016.
    2 days ago my wife tried to enter the car from front passanger side but the door refused to open.
    The door would open from the inner side latch but outside latch failed to open the car.
    Took the car to Toyota Garden motors ( where car was bought from). Even after taking an appointment a day back i was told to wait for at least 1 hour before my car to be checked. I took the car to Toyota Cantt motors where i get my prado serviced and they in an instant started work on the car.
    Opening the door inside it was found that a small plastic clip of the door mechanism had broken and the clip ( yellow in picture) was not available alone. The whole assembly had to be changed which costed Rs 1200
    Further more as it was a plastic part so it was not covered under warranty.
    Very poor quality of parts in toyota. Imagine a part breaking in less than 6 month old brand new car!!!!!!

    QC issues are not specific or exclusive to Pakistan happens every where. They are not universal, but some parts do get through the QC checks (as not all parts are manufactured by Toyota etc). Here are some examples

    Kelley Blue Book

    "I have leased VW cars since 2003, and I had stayed with the brand because I loved the value and quality for the price. My 2012 Tiguan SE was my second Tiguan, my first being a 2009 SE. Both of these vehicles were very different from my previous models, the Jetta (2003) and Passat Wagon (2007). The quality, especially on my 2012 Tiguan was lacking. Interior door handles coming off, navigation not working, and the passenger seat heater burning through the seat. It has been one year since I have traded in my Tiguan for a 2015 Acura RDX, and I could not be happier. I would highly recommend a Honda/Acura product over a Volkswagen product."

    ufff only for that small clip you have to buy the whole part, toyota is looting people, that clip is widely available at any auto store for 5/- only.

    I went there for the 1000km checkup. It was too hot to go out to a mechanic. I just wanted it to be fixed ASAP

    Perhaps in your case the issue in not major but as the quality of new corolla is getting down, if someone has serious quality issue he can take it to Consumer Court and file a case against Indus Motor.

    Can you please elaborate as what quality checks the IMC does not follow? This can be useful information to improve their QC standards

    Does IMC follow the ISO/TS 16949 standard?
    IATF Global Oversight - About the ISO/TS (Technical Specification) 16949:2009
    for reference read "Satisfying ISO/TS 16949 requirements" on page 85 of
    http://pqm-online.com/assets/files/lib/books/holye.pdf
    I bet they don't even follow the Asian quality standards such as QS-9000, VDA6, EAQF, AVSQ, and ISO 9001:2000.

    For the safety standards... perhaps I don't need to mention, probably you people know better and can compare safety specs of any European or US manufacturer. Nevertheless you can refer to
    Vehicle Regulations - Transport - UNECE
    Resolutions - Transport - UNECE
    Does IMC adopt the WP.29?

    Perhaps you misunderstood, do you have any evidence they dont follow these standards? Because unless there is evidence there is not point in blaming IMC or Atlas or anyone

    I have checked with Indus Motor Company and they did not reply and there is no certificate available on their website. Principally we are customers and after using the product most of us agree the quality of new Corolla is not up to the mark comparing with imported Japanese models. If you have any evidence that they have the required certifications, please prove it.

    I believe the IMC quality control is ineffective if they have any. As far as the safety is concerned, it is out of question. This is quite obvious... maximize profit at the cost of poor quality parts and no safety and there is no check for that!

    Why are plastic parts not covered under warranty? Why do they not stock part sub-assemblies?

    Reading all this and keeping in mind the much used excuse regarding warranty and local support for advocating in support of buying PKDM cars, how is this ordeal any different from what would have happened with any JDM Toyota vehicle? Parts might have been more easily available for PKDM, but methodology of replacing entire part for fixing issue with a small sub-assembly and expense for fixing it came entirely out of your pocket.

    Recently have seen the interior of my friend's new Corolla and was disappointed with the finish. The work has not been done properly.
