    you could have bought softer shock absorbers for front to solve the problem otherwise drive within speed limits and i also know that this is impossible for majority of corolla owners

    Typing lessons on mechanical typewriters. (Nightmares as compred to nowdays keybords with pressure sensitive pads)

    Comming to Corola brakes. Its more of a myth than reality that they are bad. They are OK. Every car brake is bad if not applied properly.

    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Many will disagree with me, but ABS is only useful for areas with lot of rain, snow and icing condition. In countries like Pakistan it is not that much required as we think they are. Braking on normal asphalt surfce with non-ABS brakes is more safe if you are driving within controllable speed limits. With ABS you may need more braking distance on dry asphalt surfaces.

    99.999999% of the time you'd be right but sadly the roads of pakistan offer very little resistance and are almost as shiny as glass which is more or less like driving on ice. that is th emain reason why ABS equiped cars make more sense in PK.

    another factor is that the driver here don't belive in any speed less than 100km/h and usually are only required to park a car in order to get a driving liscence.

    if you look at the flipped rolla you'll see that the front is mashed up so it seems that the driver braked too late and hit something which caused him to flip.

    it's common to see rollas screeching to a halt all over the rplace,.. but if you take a note of the drivers who do that you'll see that they all fall into the same catagory... the one which come just before apes became humans.

    it's sad that a bunch of gorillas with liscences make everyone with a rolla look bad,... it's not a bad a car as people make it out to be.

    Hi there guys..
    I have recently joined this web site as a member..
    well talkin abt ur topic regarding the brakes issue of XLi....changing the tires of the vehicle does not do it for u....basically the problem lies in the brake booster of the vehilce and not the issue of the tires....though by having the tires changed u will only have a better grip on the roads...

    so for safety purposes get ur alignment and balancing checked over a regular period of time and not rely on the brakes.
    for more information plz contact
    neatautos@hotmail.com

    Thanks and Regards.

    @stonedsaint
    oh sir jee firstly you are stating everyone knows xli brakes sucks . Then you are mentioning to get a civic. Then are having a gli yourself and having no problem and being happy . I am thinking there is no difference between xli and gli . So i ask you. Aren't you included in everyone ? Aren't you having problems if xli has problems ! Why not you buying civic ! Or maybe you were really stoned while writing that post ? no offence intended !
