    Default Where did the alloys go from my Corolla?

    Guys, does anyone know why the Corolla SE Saloon (the most luxorious & expensive locally assembled car) is now being sold with wheel covers?
    Why did they stop putting alloys on the top end model? Everything else is the same but why remove this?
    I dont get it. Is this another tactic to rip off our pockets while still increasing prices?

    yeap Toyota have removed the alloys. Why ?? they say they were of poor quality. So where did the spend those savings??? i asked them and they said that they beefed up the audio system. i havent seen the new system but i have heard the head unit is from PIONEERS PREMIER series. lets see.

    True story is that, that the son of a minister (sherafgan) got killed in a road accident when the alloy of his car broke in two pieces. The minister sued toyota in high court and won the case. So the poor toyota lost lot of money in compensation, after that case they stopped using alloy wheels.

    These idiots in indus motor think that they are making a car, infact toyota is a piece of junk. I bet if this car is taken to europe, toyota indus would be bankrupt after paying compensations after compensations.

    Alloys wheels are more tougher and reliable than normal wheels but god knows what these s*n of b*****s make in our country.

    Very True My friends! Indus motors also braggs alot about giving an E-type Driver Airbag in S.E and @.0D Saloons! they lie!!!! a week ago i saw an S.E Saloon Auto smashed from da front on sherpao bridge.The Driver just missed from being creamed totally! it was hard to get the poor chap out!! i didn't see any AirBag deployed. they lie to the people of pakistan, and perhaps take advantage of our lack of awareness/interest. onemore thing the engine installed in the S.E saloon and the other saloon is that of the previous Corolla. Corolla is a real piece of junk! corolla's power steering is very stiff!!!!!

    I read that the car makers are thinking about raising the prices again, they want to get their share of the premium that people pay for buying these cars...Shame on Indus Toyota.
    CAUTION: DSC OFF!

    Indus motor and suzuki sell piece of junk in our country. There is no real alternative except allowing open import of cars from all around the world.

    Our corrupt/bitchy government gets money from these killers and ban on car import. Not everyone in this country knows that there is ban on car import. if I go dubai and like a car there, which I want to bring pakistan, i cannot simply bring it. it has to come under some f*****g scheme like personal baggage, Tr or gift and if I am in dubai for a week, then no way to bring it to pakistan. i would have to give money to someone who lives there for over 7 months to bring the car under his name. This really sucks.
