    Default Urgent assistance required for buying Corolla Gli

    Dear Pak wheelers, I am planning to buy a corolla gli in karachi and my budget is 1400,000 The thing I want to know is that as it will be my first car from Karachi I want to know the following things

    1. Out of corolla gli 2010, 2011 and 2012 which car will be suitable for me in the given price range. What are the pros and cons of each model?

    2. Is it better to buy from a showroom or from sunday paper? The showroom guy says he will give his guarentee that the car is genuine and is not tampered with?

    3. I ll be driving on highways most of the time so I need ABS. So please dont recommend xli or a city.

    4. Do the old lights of gli pre 2011 model can be changed with the new ones and if yes does it require any modification in the body?

    5. Lastly, anybody selling a good Gli 2010, 2011, 2012 please let me know.

    Thank you in advance

    Regards

    Ali

    Never ever trust showroom people. never ever. You might end up in serious trouble. Try to find cars in local market with your references over there.

    Brother first of all Xli or Gli is never a good car for highway because its weak engine.

    Any u can get a 2008-09 Altis Cruistronic SR with old lights in ur budget.

    U can also get an imported 2007 Axio for 14.5 lac and fielder for 13.5 lacs lekin CNG nahi lage gi.

    There are no difference in brakes of XLi & Gli because of ABS both have skiddy brakes Gli ka Abs sensors zyada kharab hota hai that is why Xli brake are more reliable. new shape corolla brakes are much better then old one even new shape xli brakes better then old shap altis which has ABS with brake assist.

    2005 model ki japanese X corolla with 1.3L bhi 12 lac mein mil jaye gi jis mein CNG lag jati hai lekin us ka petrol average already buhat acha hai.

    Agar aap ko buhat travel karna hi tu aap 2011 ki new lights wali Xli ECOTEC le lein around 13.5 lac.

    If u want luxury Axio & Fielder are best.

    If u want luxury with economy app ko local Altis 12 lac mein mil jaye gi with CNG.

    If u want to run on petrol old X corolla is best.

    I went to the Toyota dealership in Korangi today. They had a used car showroom there. I saw a gli 2010 over there and I liked the car. The Toyota Company rep told me that Toyota will give me a warranty of 6 months. Furthermore the showroom will give guarantee that the car is not accidented. Altough the prices are slightly high
