    Default help : dad goin bad.....

    hi there....where to start from....well...we have a 98 corolla which we got brand new. the car is still in awesome shape and has done 1,20,000. recently dad has planned to get a new car, and he again planned to get a corolla. well, we (the brothers) tried our best to get him a lancer or a sunny (ma bro got a lancer 2 months back), but he is bent upon getting a corolla (i even showed him the new city, cuz i think its better than corolla in fuel economy, price and braking), but he today announced that he IS goin for a new GLi.....so i have two questions now
    1. i wud DEFINITELY change the tyres the very first day, so please tell me whether i shud go for yokohama C drive or yokohama ASPEC
    2. wats the fuel economy (per liter on petrol and on 55 kg CNG tank) of the car....both with AC and without AC

    the second question doesnt matter much now, but still want it for info

    thankx

    it's really upsetting at this age when WE should be making such decisions, or at least they should be listening to our advices. however, not that i care much, i've come to realize myself that parents are always right; just see for yourself what pathetic options you're giving him. toyota has cheaper parts, maintainance and better sales than any of those you mentioned. right now its his money. perhaps you could gift him one (of what you like) at a later stage when you can afford one and for now, thank Allah that at least he's getting a new thing unlike mine where i have the same since `97 and daddy dearest refuses to put in a penny more to its sale for ANY new car

    @waleed
    Your situation has reminded me off my own situation a year or so ago. We had a 96 corolla and when dad planned to give it to me and buy a new one for himself, he wanted to go for GLI. I tried my very best and eventually made him agree to go for honda if not lancer or sunny or any other imported brand. Mind you my dad has no idea about cars or poor performance or low quality of new corollas. he wanted to go for corolla only becoz the previous two experiences have been very good (96 corolla, 78 corolla).
    Good luck. I believe u will be getting approx. 11km/lit in city. with cng i believe 2.75-3 Rs per Km. (i am not sure)

    i have gli 2007. petrol millage is gud , all depends on ur way of driving, i get approx 14-15 km/liter , easily in city , secondly , on cng i have converted my car from toyota capital , got 60wl cylinder and its giving me 150-160 in city with, and 200-210 km on motorway and all these readings are 4 ppls with Ac on,
    breaking is not that big issue, but yes , corolla needs ur intensions while driving at low speeds, like on 20-30-40 km/hr, i have experienced car slips most at this speed, rather than at high speed breaking, tires must be a big issue, better change them, i have As539 yokohama, 195-65-14, and they are working gud in it.

    Regards

    on motorway with Ac , 4 ppls on board, i attained 170 km/hr and Rmp was at 5000 rev , it might go further but i haven't tried.
    i personally like corolla's gud look rather than city , lancer is beautifull and gud option, but i think ur father is thinking right , also consider optra, show him optra and its accessories, they are to gud, for example , climate control, only present in optra ..........

    was that speed on CNG? if yes, then its pretty nice. and i agree, corolla has better looks, but then, the shape is too old now. dad doesnt wanna go for ANYTHNG other than a corolla. the lancer which ma bro has is just AWESOME, but then u see....dad has his own choice

    bro on cng i attain max 170 with ac, but at this speed mileage sucks ,

    the mileage i mentioned was at 110-120 km/hr ..........

    i like corolla above city or other brands for its durability, road clearance, solid engine and its sound, else indus sucks of big time regarding accessories they provide, laken pheer behi gud car also from resale point of view.

    bro check it out .


    https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply_az_TopicID!46357~ForumID!10~pw.html


    after sale is same as others, but i have peace of mind abt car's engine, kits originality, electronics like adv and Emu , cng conversion switch, all are genuine and sealed up box opened in front of u, nothing will be attached with ur car from out side that box, even screws etc.
