There is nothing wrong to be a car enthusiast but after reading your both reviews about New GLI A/T, I believe many forum fellows might be more confused. I think majority of people who drive Corolla Gli or want to purchase it, need this car for going one place to another place they have different (I say SIMPLE) frame of mind about their cars as compare to enthusiasts. While driving they already have worries in their heads about their jobs , delayed payments,huge electricity bill they gonna pay in few days and off course the creepy traffic jams and in this rush a motorbike rider coming less then an inch near to his beloved car,list goes on. In this scenario I have few questions to ask from a different mind set then yours
So here are questions of "Mango Man" mentality :)
How good GLI A/T is if
1- A person want this car for daily use,going and coming back from office,pick or drop kids,going to Matro or Mall of Lahore,Sahrah e Faisal or any good place for shopping.
2-He is going to drive his car at the average speed of 70 to 90 max in rushy and semi rushy areas of city or he may often drive this car in his native town or village. He may travel on motorway or GT road 2 or 3 times in six months
- He is not speed seeker not a cornering expert and dont want to be known as a drifter
4- He believe in good looks and luxury appearance of this model(14/15)
5-He do not dislike the gap between rear wheel and body, actually he think it is good to have a suspension with higher ground clearance
5- The pure 'Mango Man'' want to keep this car as long as the this model is ''نواں ماڈل " and then he will replace it with new or better option and in all this process he want very small loss or no loss means the car should have better resale value.
please note I do not want to offend you or or any car enthusiast, I ask these questions from an other perspective .Hope you understand and answer these in simplest manner
Regards and best wishes
