So many nice pictures of Innova. Innova really looks rich in black.

I am gald to see Innovas without the protection road on the rear bumber. I have always wondered why people go for that? If they fear that the rear bumper is prone to dents and scratches, these look natural and are less of an eyesore then the protecion rod.

There are many Innova owners but what I found is people don't spend time in trouble shooting so they don't have much knowledge about their Innova apart from just basic things they need to know

Hence people don't care to post long term report because there is no thrill about it. I could see only minor issues in Innovas.

Innova has much more +ve aspects than -ve. Very less discussions indicates its trouble free vehicle. Owners spend happy time rather than feeling bad. People who sell Innovas when they relocate or need money urgently or spent happy motoring for 3 or 4 years and getting brand new Innova from company/finance.

1. GT3 goodyears are bad tyres for Innova.
2. in Bad roads not so smooth ride but still much better ride than every hatchback and few sedans.
3. Without parking sensors Reversing Innova is but pain untill we are used to it.
4. Minor rattles like rear seats, doors/window glass but very very minor when driven frequently in bad roads.
5. Paint quality is not good.
6. Petrol Innova has weak battery.
7. Diesel Innova makes extra roaring sound beyond 90kmph.

I am talking about old Innovas, with facelift I hope Toyota have rectified known BUGs in Innova.

I rate this vehicle 9/10. One cant find anything wrong in Toyota cars.

Ravi.

Well Said. Paint is really foil thin. I get 1 scratch everyday and if someone leans against the door, it gets a dimple.

Else, the vehicle is a private jet. (if only it came with hostesses like in Kingfisher, sigh!)

I desire a mini rest-room at the rear most end of the vehicle wherein half is a WC with steam shower. Maybe it needs to be a stretched version like a limo.

We will call it the Limova if ever made. Guys from MH or CH may pounce on the idea.

It has the chillest of airconditioning at idling.

My innova has had two rear end bumps from bikers when the car was stationery. I will now try to get a bull bar - new design for Xylo fits well in Innova and scare The Yellow Kolkata Taxis from now on.

Great photos guys! A real treat to innova lovers!
as btirthankar said very very few photos on the net even though the car is so common and is sold in many merkets.

cheers

Nice to have this thread here. Me too agree with btirthankar that only very few innova pics are onboard tbhp.

IMHO, from the pics posted so far, Black is the most beautiful

Interior pics of my innova is available in this post

Glad to see your Innova pictures.

Black is also the most painful when you live in a city where you get
1 scratch per day with garnishing of Bird Poop.

Default why only few pics?

Are there only very few Toyota innova owners in TBHP or are they less passionate about their vehicles.

Still only very few owners posted their ride's pics here

Some of the best pictures of Innova there, tirthanker. Black *is* beautiful. Almost makes you wanna buy one. Has the resale price of pre-facelift Innovas dropped now that we have a newer model in? Definitely in my wishlist now :-)
