True Varun...

Some manufacturers are penny wise pound foolish. Glad to see Toyota is not one among them.

Bhandari Motors in Delhi was a large Maruti Dealer located in South Delhi, But a few years back due to some irregularities Maruti cancelled the dealership and printed a Half Page Ad in all National Dailies, advising customers to go to alternate MASS for warranty and issues..Since then Bhandari has taken a New Avtar and is now " Pronto Motors" and a Dealer for Mitsubishi..!

On a Personal front, We had complained about " Rajiv Motors" located in Connought Place, as the dealer had swindled a few things from our Lancer SFXi ( Replaced all OEM Luxury Mats with Mats of Maruti Esteem-Logo was printed of Maruti) - Din't provide Spare Lamps and Fuse- Gave a night delivery...! Got him hollered at by HM Chennai- Got all the goodies back..and later all servicing is done till date at " Excel Motors" located at Mohan Co-Op..!

This evening when I was shopping I heard a Innova pass by. What surprised me was the racket the engine was making. I was quite shocked as I have observed many Innovas and always found them very smooth & quite. The noise from this particular Innova was pretty loud especially when compared to my Tractor...errrr sorry.... my Sumo Victa.

Has any one seen this or is this just a stray case.

So long....

Got a call from Uttam Toyota that TKM is offering a free interior coating and the car needs to be send on 4th july. What i understand that they will change the fuel pump or/and fuel injector to solve the smoking problem in early innovas. I hope other innova owners should be getting a call for the same.

Heard abt Bajaj cancelling dealerships in S.E Maharashtra, more than once. But I do not have confirmation about this.

Can all Innova owners who have been facing this problem and who have got Toyota to fix things please specify here what exactly has been done in their case. This would help each one of us to understand that things are being fixed the way they should be. In my case the following have been done:

1. The ECU has been reprogrammed in line with diesel quality in India.

2. The old catalytic converter has been replaced with a modified one.

3. The injectors have been cleaned at Denso India (which has the specialised machine required for this job)

My car's performance and general drive quality has distinctly improved and there is no black smoke noticable now. But from a couple of days things seem to have declined somewhat again. The car seems to be slightly heavier and sluggish again. Can't figure out what's wrong now.

Was reading this thread again and noticed talk about replacement of fuel pump and injectors which have not been done in my case. Would appreciate if affected Innova owners can specify what exactly has been done with their cars so that we all know whether Toyota is being selective in their recall policy.

Hi, while hunting for info on smoking Innova, landed here, just at the right spot

Mine is 2005 G3, delivered from Uttam Toyota currently in Pune, has done around 42K and have recently observed this smoking issue

This thread is pretty dated, but if you guys are still around can you please share if the ECU re-map and other measures helped in the long run, did the problem ever surface again

I am planning to talk to the dealer DSK Toyota here on the subject and I want to know the facts before I take it up with them

Thanks

Hi Anupam. Sorry for pulling up such an old thread.

I wanted details about where you got your remap done. Spoke to Abhishek from KIIRUS a few days ago and he said that a remap was not possible on the Innova. I would be really keen to know some details please.

Hi,

I've seen code6 remapped thars and one thing I can say is the owners do sport a good grin. The vehicles also sound really sweet.

However, I remember those guys saying a Toyota is not possible to remap. Something about the ECU difficult to crack. Ill get back after gathering some concrete info.

How does a re map change the engine/exhaust note of a thar, unless you play around with the exhaust?

Re mapping was done at the local Toyota dealer as per the standard specification, sorry for the delayed response I am not very regular at the forum, these days

You are right! Generally, people go in for a decat and a downpipe from them, thereby changing the exhaust note!
