Lol. As a Honda civic owner, I can say that initial teething problems are present in such cars.
If you remember, the civics boot. didn't close initially. The Honda dealerships then found out that there was a problem in its alignment of the mechanism and it was fixed. The rear mudflaps look like they're going to fall-they still haven't been able to find a solution to that.
I have yet to test drive (if there is a test drive available) the new corolla, but looking at the pics, it's a good enough car.
Yes, it lacks an immobiliser but it has some interesting specs not found in the previous models like an android based touch screen.
Yes it does lack an extra air bag, climate control in the top of the line model. But it doesn't matter, every second car on the roads shall be a new corolla despite our complaints, thanks to the lack of options.
But you gotta admit - the price is very reasonable- especially for the basic models.
