Toyota corolla-Japan

Recommended Posts

i own a 2004 model corolla. toyota might be known for reliability world over, but let me tell you mine in india has been pathetic to say the least. starting with the materials used , well toyota has totally skimped , the overall quality is poor, buttons & switches feel fidgety. front legroom is poor , suspension very noisy & uncomfortable, tube type tyres, rattles & squeaks are common ,

cd player conked of after 3 yrs. , power windows used to stop operating sometimes. the overall fit & finish is poor. cost cutting is evident everywhere. fuel economy - 8kmpl is less. engine noisy & boomy, in the begining it did not even have an abs , which means braking is a chore & the wheels lock up pretty easily sending you in i skid.    poor show toyota

Is India getting the Step-Motherly treatment?

Hey that question has the same answer for any foreign brand. I'd be surprised if some company doesn't give us step motherly treatment (correct me if am wrong).
