You don't have a link for that, do you?

I think maybe the Autoclutch deserves its own thread.

Had a friend who took a demo of the automate clutch on a 800. He said it s*cked and was not worth the cash and scrapped the idea of installing one.

i think automate will take quite a bit of getting used to!! like shifting into neutral when you would just press on the clutch if you came to a stop momentarily! plus revving at times like push starts would be quite an issue!
the advantage of an automatic is to not worry about gearshifts and it clearly does'nt solve the purpose!

Default Converting a Manual Transmission to an Automatic Transmission

We do have more manual transmission models then that of automatic transmission one though automatics transmission of the same model are available outside India!!

I was wondering if one can get Manual transmission Innova converted to an Automatic transmission one. Sourcing parts might not be an issue as Automatic transmission spares are massively available in thailand and other countries.

I inquired Toyota India for purpose, but they denied somehow. Is Manual to Automatic conversion a cumbersome job ??

Though in my understating being a same chassis it might not be that cumbersome job to import automatic transmission spares from thailand and use them to convert transmission. Though it might be an costly affair and voiding warranty straight forwardly.

Any cost estimation and practical grounds for such project ??

Wish Toyota had launched Automatic Transmission Innova with facelift.


EDIT: Found a related thread, http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...tomatic-2.html (Convert Innova Manual into Automatic?) but somehow it is revolving around autoclutch review only. Mods please merge the thread if necessary.

It might be cheaper for you to buy an A/T WagonR or Santro for city use!

I doubt you'd seriously want an A/T for highway use.

And if it is DIY thrills you're after, there's nothing stopping you!

Option are available indeed but for smaller cars, within SUV/MUV criteria no such option is available till now atleast < 12-14 lakhs.

A combination of toyota reliability along with an automatic transmission will be perfect combination for sure.

ashthedivx, one of the most endearing qualities of the Innova is its long-term reliability. After 1.0 lakh kms, 2.0 lakh kms or even 3.0 lakh kms. In all probability, you will be foregoing the reliability of the Innova with such a swap.

My suggestion : Don't. If daily traffic is bothersome, get a driver for yourself.

There is the Scorpio A/T but it feels like a half-hearted project vehicle. The engine + transmission mating is far from perfect.
