This is an interesting move by Toyota. I also found sometime back that the Corolla does not have a provision for the "Tow Hook" at the front. I heard that even an Innova does not have this feature. Speaks volumes on Toyota's confidence on their products... or just missing out on important features..

As I mentioned in the hidden features thread - toyotas don't break down. They just accelerate away

Innova has tow hooks both at the front & rear.

I don't think so. The communication clearly mentions that roadside assistance is applicable to vehicles "invoiced after 1st April, 2010".

So I am a bit miffed that by purchasing the Innova 6 months ago, Toyota will not cover me with this roadside assistance program.

On another note, my wife left the lights on in the Baleno on a shopping trip and came back to find that the vehicle had no cranking power. She had no clue what happened & called me. I gave her Maruti (specifically Varun Motors in hyderabad) number. Within 45 mins, a service van from maruti reached her and they jump started the car.

Total cost charged - ZERO. And my Baleno is nearly 5 years old now.

Now compare this to the Toyota 3 year roadside assistance program limited to vehicles bought after 1 April 2010!!

No wonder I will shift to Maruti again if they ever made a car like the Innova!!
