    Default Corolla Owners beware (ECU stealing on hit list)

    All Corolla owners please beaware where you park your car.

    Sidemirrors
    Audio systems
    Emblems
    Wheel caps


    They havnt left the ECU too.

    Last friday we went for Namaz on coming back rear quater glass was broken and the car failed to start, the deck was there, nothing seemed unchanged.

    No body even bothered thinking that the ECU could be stolen , The car was towed to Toyota Central and we got to know the ECU was stolen.

    Is it that easy :/ i noe its just a clip and a couple of screws but thats freaking crap, its costs around Rs70,000. Altho the car was insured but its a 2008 we would be paying around 40% depreciation.

    Since the engine is same in the 9th and the 10th Gen, so thoose cars arnt safe either, once a person gets into ur car, weather its behind the dash or inside the hood it can be stolen.

    Becareful everyone.

    Godforbid if ur coming with your family late night, and ur cars ECUs missing it can be trouble some.

    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.
