Hello People, I couldn't find an appropriate place to post this message. I heard the Innova is being discontinued and that a new model is in the offering, is that true? Somebody to clarify this news please. This happened when I got the Qualis (albeit I sold her for huge gains thereafter!), it was discontinued six months after my purchase and now this, its been the same six months since my purchase of the Innova! Some luck if the above news holds any truth.

Cherio

I was at my mechanics garage this weekend for a chat and an Innova was parked alongside lifted on a jack with the silencer being the focus of attention.
I was told that the Innova, a 2007 model was not responding to acceleration and had to be driven with difficulty as the throttle, engine and driving wheels had some kind of mismatch.The pick-up had reduced a lot.
The TASS checked the MPV and told the owner that the auxiliary silencer (that which connects with the engine exhaust manifold directly) will have to be checked and if need be the whole silencer unit will need a replacement.The cost of the whole unit was a cool Rs 34K.
The Innova was brought to this garage and the auxiliary unit taken off.The picture shows how it looks like. It has two electronic temperature sensors too.
All T-BHP INNOVA Owners- Your Car Pics here Please-dsc07161.jpg
The auxiliary unit looks like some old used and discarded ammunition.
There are two units along the silencer pipe. The unit on the rear (left on this picture) has a very light ceramic inner lining on the inner side, all along the metallic body. This greyish white ceramic lining has thousands of tiny square mesh like passages to allow the fumes to pass through.I believe it is a SPM filter kind of thing (can be corrected here) to conform to Bharat /Euro pollution norms.On hammering the outer part of the two units and the exhaust pipes, dry ash like residues, both dusty and as solid lumps fell off. More than 400 grams of the ash residue fell off and sadly parts of the ceramic filter (in broken condition ) too along with.
After the job was done the auxiliary unit was refitted and the MPV did the trial run very well.
The owner could save Rs 34K but the SPM monitoring ceramic within the auxiliary exhaust was much destroyed.
I was told that diesel engines if used for jack rabbit acceleration,too much throttle in neutral or any abnormal throttle moves that are likely to release unburnt exhausts can progressively block the auxiliary silencer with residues from the unburnt fuel.

Anjan, that looks like a cat or catalytic converter. The ceramic inner is the
called the substrate or brick. its coated with rare earth metals. Those are 02, not temp sensors.

The second one is probably the DPF but I'm not sure if it was required for BS3.

Thanks Mpower for the information. I could not click pictures of the ceramic inner nor the ash dust/ lump residues.

Hey guys What should be the ideal tyre pressure in the Innova? Both front and rear? I couldn't find it in the manual.

Guys, Good thread and loved most of the pics in this thread!

@docaxe, sorry to ask - are those scratches at the back of your car? above and on both sides of the number plates? I have been reading that the paint job on the Innova is the most -ve rated point. Doesnt Toyota want to do anything in this regard?

Hey guys, wanted to know what you all think of the INNOVAs rear-most seat comfort?
How is it for adults on long journeys?
It it more comfortable for the back benchers in a captain seat formation or the ordinary rear bench?
What about luggage space? If you are doing a 7 member ride for an extended weekend, do you need a luggage rack?
Do the rear seats have rails, like on the SCORPIO so that they can slide in front to liberate more room for back-benchers?

Pretty good with reasonable leg space. better than most cars

Very comfortable. The ride is a bit firm on low speeds but ok.
Quote:

Captain seats are more comfortable, but if you want to have 5 persons and a lot of luggage, you might have to think.
Quote:

It is a Santro size boot. I have carried 6 persons and a fortnight of luggage in my car, simply by folding one of the rearmost seats. With 7 persons, you will have to put 4 in the middle row that is not so safe.

Of course, the luggage space if enough if everyone carried not more than 1 change of clothes.

Yes they have.

For more details on innova, you can also look up my ownership experience

That's not scratches but dust deposited from the mud roads...
