It really takes the fun out of driving
I just bought a Toyota Corolla made in South Africa. I believe they should recall this model or fix this problem.
Because when it is in automatic and when the engine shifts from 1st to 2nd, the engine chocks up for a while and then it is released (every time). I spoke to Toyota engineers and they informed me that this problem is common in the 2009 model, and that they are waiting for instructions from Japan.
I have driven BMW, VW Mazda and Honda and never have I seen such a problem. And never would I have believed that Toyota with the reputation of high quality performance would release such a problem, even if it is made in South Africa.
I will be filling a complaint with the consumer protection agency. If anyone wants to ask me anything my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. My mobile number is +20122150578, my name is Tamer Mesharafa.
I have no problem with the interior, it is very spacious. But the color of the seats is very boring.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
