so my shiny new car has issue , i recommend to all out there..DO NOT BUY A TOYOTA lOCALLY ASSEMBLED CAR!!! and NEVER GO TO TOYOTA SOUTHERN MOTORS ON KORANGI FOR IT!!
here is the story in a letter that my abba wrote
“I have purchased a brand new Daihatsu Cuore Ecomatic in November 2008 for my daughter’s use. I preferred a brand new automatic car for her as she should drive a trouble free car due to her odd office timings and generally as well.
With this intimation I purchased Coure Automatic, but it did not workout for her. From before the first service time the car started giving her various problems of gear noise, low pick up etc. Within four months the car stopped on the way in the late evening hours. She had to leave the car at a friend’s home for the night and had to hire Radio cab as she is not allowed to use a taxi at late hours. She took the car to the workshop of Toyota Southern where they simply charged the battery and returned the car the next day. I also did not say anything as it happens sometimes.
During the next 2 months the car again went to the showroom for some an alignment issues which was causing the car to shake and make noise, this was replaced and the other gear noise issues which had resurfaced were fixed too but apparently in vain. The battery issue occurred again last week and the car stopped just like that at late hour while she was returning from a wedding alone. This time at such an odd hour, she had to request to one of her friends to drop her all the way from Defence to North Nazimabad.
Next morning the car was again at the Toyota Southern. They kept it for two days again but initially could not find any fault or reasons for car not being switched on and then after two days realized that some unit had to be replaced which would take another 2 days. Due to her dire need for the car for then, they returned it after simply charging the battery and she was asked to bring it back next week and they will fix it.
Over all the car has gone 6 times to the showroom from the beginning till now every time with an issue, and this time was the limit, for this should not be happening in a brand new car.
If such is the condition of a brand new car from a firm of repute such as yours then how are the parents to relax and trust the vehicle when the young kids are out driving at any given hour. I bought her a new car so she would be trouble free and for my peace of mind, obviously the circumstances are completely opposite.
It is requested that kindly ask your technical people to see to this repeated occurrence of some issue or another, the car stopping just like that being a major technical problem, and if it is not rectified, then please exchange it with a new car as it is still under warranty.
Look forward to your kind cooperation.”
