Congratulations Harish on the new car !! Toyota is indeed one of the most reliable car manufacturer. Have been reading your ordeal with Skoda, I wish it will come to an end soon.

Cheers,

Congrats Harish,

Welcome to the Toyota family. I think you took a very wise decision of going in for a reliable and time tested model after all that you had to face with the SODA. opps! Skoda. I found the Shinrai service Top-notch till date. Do post some pics.

btw, what is the progress on the Skoda case. Hope you've hired a good lawyer.

All the Best

Hey Lalvaz. It's not a sports car. Toyota calls it 'sports'. It only has skirts and spoiler.

Congrats Harish. I'm sure your experience with Toyota would be much better.

As said by others, all the best with your case, and looking forward to you emerging victorious. I really admire people like you who take the time and energy to fight out these cases till the end. Kudos, and don't let Skoda get away lightly.

Nice choice, Harish. The Altis is a comfortable and super reliable mile muncher. I'm sure you'll have many wonderful years with Toyota.

Congratulations on your new car. The previous gen Corolla is one of the most reliable and cheapest cars to maintain in its category. I owned one for four years and done 70K kms. It never had a breakdown, not even a single fused bulb in four years.

Absolute peace of mind!!
