    Default Corolla 2.0D Saloon....Why do we hate it???

    Why is it that everyone I talk to hates the new corlla diesel? Some say its the pickup, some say its noisy, what exactly is the issue. I think it's a perfectly good car. Far better than the previous.

    Salam,
    Well first of all the new corolla 2.0D is a very good car. It's engine is also great and have no problems at all.I have been keeping diesel cars till last year and preferred tem more than petrol due to the power they give you at an ecnomical level. But in the situation nowadayz, a diesel car is no more ecnomical as diesel proces are very high and keeping a petrol car costs mush less than a diesel one.And the only thing in which the previous corolla was better than the new one is the driving position i.e. the steering wheel infront of you rather at being at stomach level as it is in the new corolla....

    The old and the new 2.0D have the same engine ...the only problem is that this time the body size is bigger hence more weight which the engine can not support as well as it did in old shape.

    ok guys u shud keep it real, first the engine is not the same, there are mid level improvments, the top is changed u wont c exhaust pipes on front and other things, i have driven old one and this new 2.0d, infact i own the latter one, leme put it straight "its faster than old 2.0d", what i have observed here is that all u people concern is BODY WEIGHT, but in certain caes u have to forget ur damn bodyweight and look broader, i even raced the sunny diesel 2.0d and the crap fiat 1.7D and the old 2.0d. the new one was faster than the other three right from 1st gear. i dont want comments here but if u want get to roll on this one!

    well to make a few things straight here, 1st of all the 2.0d has the same engine as old one maybe a few improvements, what makes this one slow is the gear ratios which are configured for load bearing and not acceleration. 2nd the body of all the new corrola's is the same, if a 1.3L runs fast then why cants a 2.0d do the same?? this is where the gear ratios come in they make the car slow! 3rd the vehicle is very noisy once you hit 120km/h, does any one know why??? well i did a thorough investigation of the vehicle and it turns out the guys at toyota forgot to SOUND PROOF this junk! Hell man even my 1.0L Diesel Charade is sound proofed.Some of you might differ with my views but believe me you 2 will find out through your experience with the car.

    mr gttx, are u a worker in toyota who forgot to put the sound proof system of urs, ur car is 1.0L so definately it wub produce less sound in cabin, secondly ur mingling with gear ratios in technical, but what iam tellin u is what i have done in practical, the races.....and to correct u the new XLi isnt considered as fast! and as your gear ratios r concerned dont compare a petrol's gear span with that of a diesel. and do tell me the max limits of ur 1.0diesel and the old 20.d in all gears, coz mine are:

    1st gear=40
    2nd gear=65
    3rd gear=100
    4th gear=~135
    5th gear=went upto 180, didnt went further

    and now if u want to c it yourself come to defence lahore n i can show ya buddy!

    well few things and corrections.
    1- body weight makes a big difference!(as u can see most racing cars are made of fibre aswell!

    2- (new 2.0d) engine is new, different and offcourse modified. new technology!
    by the way what slope were u talking abt buddy ? were u trying to reach K2? and new 2.0d could'nt passed the slope on the other hand 99' 2.0d did... strange!!!

    3- new 2.0d has more sound in cabin and old one has less ? all bullshyt.. 99' 2.0d has different exaust which has some crappy "jali" which connects manifold to silencer pipe.. but the new one has more better exaust system so offcourse noise is lesser than 99' 2.0d

    4- cabin is far better than 99' 2.0d and looks preety good.

    5- gear ratio is bit diffrent but still new 2.0d moves good, on the other hand 99' 2.0d runs fast caz of body weight.. its light!

    6- hey man dont campare patrol cars to diesel... PLEASEEEEE!!!! and also charade diesel 1.0 to corolla 2.0d.. (i dont beleive u guys)

    7- nice question baby.. economically both cars are good, 2.0d and new city.

    8- one more thing which can't be ignored, new car is new... old is old.. i mean the old car cant be good as a new car. still u see, too many camparisions!

    9- i have had 3 2.0d limited(all 1999' in excellent/maintained condition),still owns one!... have driven new 2.0d several times and i can bet new one is better than 99' 2.0d!(still im not saying 99' 2.0d is not satisfactory)!!!

    Salam,
    First of all, the old 2.0D is more liked by all the technical people out there in all the factors. The only thing better in the new 2.0D is it's shape..... Nothing else

    guys why r u so obsessed for the the old generation cars, the new corolla even has softer n comfortable suspension, and bilalahm wud u mind explaning how the old 2.0d is liked by all the technical people? and engine which is 12 years old? while the new 2.0ds engine whichis 7 years old.
    and if ppl are trying to b soo technical y dont u discuss or try to go for the common-rail CTDi???
    and again body weight, lol, the new 2.od gives 10 HP more and 5 NM more torque, proved by corollas technical staff! the gear ratios are lower meaning better acc and lower top speed. the gear box used in the new corolla is the same as tht of 97 Avensis,
    secondly overall the new corolla is the shape of 2003 and u ppl say overall the 1990 was better, which is now considered as crap internationally if not nationally.
    i think some of u havent even driven this car and r jsut making false aqusitions.....if i hv this new corolla im not standing taller here like a typical paki guy, but even if i had the older 2.0d i wud hav admitted tht newer is better...

    Guy it seems there is a big confusion in your heads. What i am saying based on my own practical tests is the following,

    1.The body(excl. the engine) weight of all corolla's is the same....same was the case with the older shape as well. Go ask Toyota Manufacturers (not the dealers plzz)

    2.The gear ratios are designed for load bearing not acceleration. Where as the older 1 had better ratios in favor of acceleration.

    3.I compared 1.0D's sounproofing witha 2.OD not the engine sizes. I guess you guys dont even know how sound proofing is done. Its not only the exhaust u stupid ****. So first learn what soundproofing is all about only then blabber here in the forum.

    So in terms of sound proofing and acceleration the old 2.0D wins. this was my comparison.
