2009 Toyota Corolla Advance 1.3 from South Africa
Clutch was changed at 26500. Got it back after two weeks, and 15 minutes later an oil leak from the gearbox. Drove the car for a week, and the clutch burnt again, and a second clutch was authorised by the field technician.
The car now is sticky, especially in the morning in first and second gear. At times it feels as if it grinds in second gear as the car gets hotter while driving.
Toyota SA says after driving the car today, that it's right according to the spec., so it has to select gears like that they say. Spoken to just about everybody, and no help. The car is still doing the same thing. A courtesy vehicle I drove does exactly the same; even the sales manager drove the same spec. car, and agreed that the car he drove does the same.
What now? You can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Fuel economy good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
