    Default Corolla The Most Successful Car Ever

    The Toyota Corolla is a compact car produced by the Japanese automaker Toyota, which has become very popular throughout the world since the nameplate was first introduced in 1966. In 1997, the Corolla became the bestselling car in the world, with over 30 million sold as of 2007. Over the past 40 years, one Toyota Corolla car has been sold on average every 40 seconds.

    Corollas are currently manufactured in Japan, the United States (Fremont, California), the United Kingdom (Derbyshire), Canada (Cambridge, Ontario), Malaysia, China (Tianjin), Taiwan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Africa, Brazil, Turkey, Philippines, Thailand, Venezuela, and India.

    (this is enough for those who think corolla is a junk, infact its the most popular car throughout the world and has got the most number of "satisfied" customers than any other brand)

    why dont the corolla guys justify around 900K for an Xli first?

    Honda city definitely has a lot more to offer in the same price,let alpne any other marketing offering

    Now please dont give me the resale stuff. Value for money is exactly opposite of resale value. Its the bang for your buck.

    Only thing which corolla enjoys is resale and thats it. Its a trap which gives indus guys oppurtunity to exploit you all

    @Lotus
    Official cars are unfortunately corollas in most cases and Thank GOD we wont be having it after March 2008. To enlighten you a little, i dont drive it even with free fuel, Makes you think something, right? My head bangs on the side pillar even on the sligtest jump, its a torture for sure. Supposedly the high sitting position helps in visibility but the same side pillar can make a whole motor cycle invisible on u turns, but who cares about these things, its a corolla, name says it all. its not meant for comfort f the buyer, its meant for making a safe investment only

    These are very few of the identified problems

    if millions of people are doing something it doesnt mean, by any law, that the decision is right..

    Microsoft Windows is the most successful OS ever but everyone knows about its bugs and security issues..(6)

    Civic is a
    sincere
    car..

    sir jee firstly u compared a city with an xli.... then u said about the xli pillar which can hide a motorcyclist, agreed but bhai jaan city has a pillar which is even more wider than a corolla....

    people have their own preference, according to their taste, comfort etc etc.. for some driving position is excellent according to their height etc, for u it wont be.

    the other thing which i believe is the low maintenance cost which none of the mitsubishis, hondas can ever come closer. unlike you, most of the people cannot throw away thousands and thousands of rupees each month to maintain a car... corolla's XLI has been specifically designed for those low budget category which dont need power windows/ mirrors and other such luxuries in their car as they increase the maintenance cost for sure. if anyone to buy a fully loaded corolla will surely go for GLI/ SE or ALTIS but XLI is primarli for middle class..

    and the driving conditions of the whole country are not like islamabad. here in karachi you may need to change the shocks/ suspensions every year frequently... maintaining a honda or a mitsu is terrible for those who have hand-to-mouth situation with their income, yes for those who dont have any financial problem will be happy maintaining their hondas for thousands of rupees but these pople are not among the majority.
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    @ Spectra bhai: Sir plz we are talking about Corolla so compare it with Civic, the thing is Corolla has almost as good stuff as Civic to offer in less price, I agree that Corolla is not as Stylish, Comfortable and advance in technology as the Civic but it has everything as good as Civic...

    And with respect sir Corolla is much more easier to maintain than Civic so its not just the re-sale value...

    As far as Xli is concerned its a crap one should go for Lancer but not City,

    But Altis is much better than Civic in the Price Indus ppl are offering it in...

    Again Sir Ur much experienced than I am, I could ofcourse be wrong...

    perhaps this is the very reason why suzukis and corolla specially XLI is so popular.... becuase their is not any competition in this category... let honda or any other brand introduce similar vehicle with equal maintenance cost and equally easy availibility of spares then u will see a healthy competition buildup.. without it there wont be any reason people would switch from corolla to city/ civic or lancer.

    Pakistani Customers want a car thats value for money i.e Gud Resale, Soft Maintainence, Reliable Company, Brand Name, And as much features as possible without increasing the price toooo much... Thats what I have to say... Well I am in my first year of BBA.... A few more years and I will be able to analyse the market more effectively... But this is true as far as I have analysed at this level...

    do u think a salaried person will only go for a civic when its rear suspension/shocks costs more than 45 thousand..??? last year my freinds vti got a gearbox problem and got it fixed for 75 thousand rupeees...

    the thing is all these prosmatec/ vtec/ steermatic sounds very good but just think of maintaining them.... companies can maintain such car but a normal person with a limited income cannot... XLI offers manual gear shift means no problem in maintenance. it doesnt offer power side mirrors means no need to afraid of motorcyclists who often get responsible of breaking the side mirrors particularly when ur standing on a signal.... my cousins city's side mirrors costed him 15 thousand for a set, when they were broken

    ever wondered why XLi is available in only black n white with no metallic color to offer??? just because it is there to satisfy the low budget category... all those who need luxury & comfort go for GLI/ SE etc

    Maintainence yes, Thats why we bought a Camry instead of n e second hand car in the market like... Accord, Mark X, Benz, Bmw bla bla.... And not even the crapy Honda Atlas Acoord...
    And its a tention free car, almost zero maintainence and a smashing gud consumtion of 10-12 km/litre consumption on Motorway with A/C...
