    Default Custom Driving Seat, Immobilizer and car selection.

    Hello Members!

    I want to know if it is possible to install a customized driving seat and immobilizer in Corolla 2010-2013? By customized seat i mean height adjustment, cause my height is 5'2".

    I have a range of 20 lacs and want a car for my personal use (i'm not married lol) kindly suggest me a good car which must have the following features:-

    1. Full Automatic including automatic gear
    2. Fuel Economical
    3. Good drive and must be comfortable
    4. Immobilizer is must.
    5. Driving Seat Height adjustment option
    6. Availability of parts at reasonable price

    I was thinking of Corolla 2011-2013 model but other suggestions are welcomed, you can mention both local and imported cars. Please keep the above mentioned features in mind while giving your kind suggestions.

    Will be waiting for your kind reply.

    Thanks.

    considering your height, it is absolutely normal, and all big cars have seat height adjustment that makes the height to a certain level.
    Im 5'5" and i adjust seats of all my cars to the lowest level and still comfortable, so if you adjust them at the highest level, it will be fine.


    Regarding Immobilizer, you can install after-market, but it will not be a Real Immobilizer, so you have to buy a car that has factory fitted immobilizer, (Civic is in your range)
    Dont go for the after-market immobilizer.

    A Honda civic 2013 prosmatic(new shape)should be easily available in your budget.
    A civic reborn is also an option in your budget.
    Or you can get a toyota aqua if you don't want huge rear seat room. Is very economical when it comes to fuel.
    Don't buy a corolla, there are no after market immobiliser. The so called immobilisers available are toys, no actual security.

    Current 9th gen civic has driver seat height adjustment option which works great with adjustable telescopic steering. It also comes with immobilizer.

    My friend, local cars don't have height adjustment option except Grande and she is out of my budget. I don't want to spend so much money on a local assembled car.

    Right, Baleno does not have, but the factory height is perfectly fine.
    My seat adjusttment style is back side is reclining towards back seats, still I can see the bonnet.

    I had baleno 2001 previously, and now 2005, the 2005 has more lower seats than 2001.

    Then go for a Japanese car, as suggested by Abdullah,
    I have a very good experience of Japanese cars, regarding your point of parts availability if you buy a Nice car, then it does not need any parts at all (except filters etc which are easily available)

    I had Passo 2007, it had a seat height adjuster also, now i have Passo 2011 it also has same, (the immobilizer version has height adjuster, but the simple version does not have)

    I have an EK, it also has a seat adjuster.

    and i drive all these cars on the lowest height of seat.

    Even I was thinking of getting a Japanese car like Vitz or Passo, as far is Aqua is concerned its an Hybrid. I've heard good reviews about it but someone told me that Hybrid cars are sensitive as compared to Non-Hybrids when it comes to maintenance.

    Do Japanese Cars have a good resale value, if i sell my car after 3-4 years will i get a good amount, be it Aqua, Vitz, or Passo?

    Most of the Japanese cars have nav system and back cam facility if for instance, the facility is not available then would I be able to find a good nav system and back cam system in the market easily?
