What is better…a manual transmission 1.8 petrol or a 7 speed CVT.
In terms of better pick up and acceleration
Is manual transmissn equally good or better than the CVT version…or
latter is better pick… which is a better option..?

Subject: – Toyota New Corolla Altis AC manufacturing defect

I had booked the New Corolla Altis 1.8 JS colour Champagne mica Metallic
(Rs.13, 79,775/- on road price, order form attached) with Rs.50, 000/- (By
Cheque no.866501, PNB in the name of Cosmic Motors India Private Limited-
receipt attached) advance on 1st, June, 2014 at Grace Toyota, Saket and
they said you will get your vehicle after a month. On 9th June, 2014, I got
the call from sales person Mr. Mohit Sharma that one car is coming in 7
days but that is a upper model New Corolla Altis 1.8 G Pearl white Metallic
(Rs.15, 79,070/- on road price) which is 2 lacs above from the Model I
booked and they somehow convinced me to take the upper model. They said you
please get the loan approved from the bank and pay the balance amount
before delivery. Then I paid them another Rs.4, 00, 000/- (By Cheque
no.722391, PNB in the name of Cosmic Motors India Private Limited-receipt
attached) on 16th, June, 2014 and Rs.1, 00, 000/- (By Cheque no.260874, PNB
in the name of Cosmic Motors India Private Limited- receipt attached) on
12th, June, 2014. On 18th PNB bank has delivered the bank draft of Rs.9,
73,256/-(Loan Amount).

Total On road price Rs. 15,79,070/-
(Insurance done by HDFC ergo insurance agent & Rs.37, 946/-).
Total down payment Rs.5,50,000/-
Total Demand draft made by PNB is Rs.9,73,256/-

After paying full amount they deliver the car on 18th, June, 2014, after
few days I discovered that new car AC is not working properly and same has
been informed to the Grace Toyota sale team Mr.Mohit Sharma, Mr. Furqaan
and Mr.Ramit Kapoor (GM sales). They have taken it very lightly that this
cannot be happened in the Toyota cars so they advised me to get it checked
at the 1st service. Grace Toyota doesn’t have their own service station in
South Delhi so they advise me to get it checked at Galaxy Toyota workshop
in Okhla. On 30th, June, I personally gone to the workshop and called the
Mr.Mohit Sharma, Grace Toyota to have a word with service attendant
regarding AC problem to check the car AC. The AC technician just checked
the AC with their hand and said that it happens in monsoon that AC get
tripped when it get cooled, so they advised me to change the settings to
lowest and keep the fan speed at four and it will run perfectly in this
mode. Then I tried running AC at that mode it runs fine for few minutes and
again it tripped off and temperature goes up. Again I informed to Mr.Ramit
Kapoor that AC is still not working, and then he sent their representative
Mr.Davender Singh at our door step on 8th July, 2014. He checked the AC and
found that there is some problem with AC and they said that there is a
problem with the compressor and they might have to change the compressor.
They said you please bring the car to our workshop which is situated in
Gurgaon.

I shocked to hear that how they can deliver the new car whose AC is not
working from the beginning despite of many quality checks at Toyota
Manufacturing unit in Bangalore and dealer workshop in Gurgaon before
delivery. How can anybody imagine a 16 lakh car whose AC compressor is not
working from the beginning?

After knowing this I informed Mr.Ramit kapoor (Gm-sales) that how you can
deliver the new car without being its AC tested and its compressor has
manufacturing defect. After having this argument he requested me to get the
car tested at their Gurgaon workshop. On 10th July, 2014 I went to their
Gurgaon workshop for AC testing and they test the AC with some thermo
device and came to know again that AC compressor is not working. After this
I met their Manager and they said that they will replace the compressor and
Ac will work. I said that how can you people not tested it before delivery
of the vehicle, why should I suffer because of your negligence. How you
have given it an OK certification if you people have not checked it
properly. After this argument they have made me meet their Vice president
Mr. Vinish Mittal and they called their team GM-CS Mr. Vikram Suri and Head
Customer relation Ms. Dimple Tomar. They all tried to convince me to get
the AC compressor changed but I insist why I should compromise with this
due to Toyota Manufacturing defect. I requested them to replace my car with
new one. They said they cannot decide on this and they will call the
technical team from Toyota Kirloskar Motors, head office, Bangalore, they
will again re-inspect the vehicle and after their inspection they will
decide what to do.

On 11th, July, 2014, I again visited their workshop at 11:00 AM and they
kept me waiting for one and half hour. After one and half hour I persuaded
them to check the vehicle. Their technical team from TKM (Toyota Kirloskar
Motors) has started inspecting the vehicle with their computerised
equipment. They started the process and it has taken them 45 minutes to
diagnose that AC is not working efficiently and car compressor needs to be
replaced. They all again tried to convince me to get the AC compressor
replaced and I again insisted that you please change the vehicle why should
I compromise in new car which has manufacturing defect from the beginning.
I have paid for the best technology and quality car from Toyota then why
should I compromise on the manufacturing defected car delivered to me. They
said our authority is to change the compressor rest will depend on higher
official after they submit their report to head office.

Then I made them to give me a report (copy attached) that its compressor is
not working properly and it needs to be replaced. I again met their
complete team to replace the vehicle as it has a manufacturing defect from
the beginning and they said they are only dealer and final decision is of
Toyota Kirloskar Motors. They have sent my concern to the TKM and they will
revert on my email regarding their decision. So know I am waiting for their
mail.

This has caused a lot of harassment and mental agony to me and my family.
Firstly running after the dealer and the company due to the manufacturing
defect and secondly I am unable to use the car for which I have paid
through my nose.

You will appreciate that I am incurring cost towards AC cab services
everyday on account of unavailability of my owned vehicle, not to mention
the mental harassment and social embarrassment it is causing me. Please
note that Toyota Kirloskar Motors and Grace Toyota (Cosmic motors Private
limited) are both jointly and severally liable for all financial and other
loses caused to me as a direct and foreseeable consequence of your
negligence and inaction, for which I reserve my right to seek damages.

Kindly look in to the matter seriously and replace this manufacturing
defect vehicle with new vehicle in good condition without any manufacturing
defects.

Thanks and Regards,
