I believe the leakage from the oil filter over time is called as sweating. They confirmed that it isn't that. For the left pulling yes I would be visiting a place outside of the A.S.S. for resolution!

At the fag end of the old Innova ( Type 3 & Type 4 ), I remember the customers & reviewers complaining of poor / uneven panel gaps especially around the hatch area.

Can also personally vouch for the very poor paint finish - the bumper especially - & very poor quality - had a front bumper to rear bumper scratch owing to a thorny tree branch near my office approach, of my Type 3 Innova GX.

Also the paint of my running board had PEELED off within 6 months or so. It was rectified by repainting the running board.

Never ever faced such a problem in any of my Tata vehicles.

Yes the Toyota A.S.S was very supportive & proactive but still it is something not necessary & expexted for a 15 lakh vehicle.

On a different note, if these reported problems werr on a Indian manufacterer vehicle ( ie Tata for example ) by now the grave would have been dug & a very deep one at that to bury the vehicle as unsafe & pathetic.

Just my thoughts.

Hello fellow members,

My friend brought a Innova Crysta V model 10 days ago and he has two queries which i would like ask other crysta owners.

1. Reverse camera - around 15 - 20% if the screen show the bumper + partial number plate.

2. front disc brakes has around 0.5 - 1 cm of oxidized layer of rust closer to the inner circle (nothing major but is not like regular paint or coating which we can see in regular disc brakes. apologies for the non technical description.

Are these normal and if any of the owners could crosscheck and confirm it will be great. Thanks.

Posting pictures of the Brake rotor of my innova crysta which has done 7000kms Only. I did the brake pad cleaning during 5k service from the Toyota showroom. But now the condition has deteriorated. Booked for a check up with service center for tomorrow.Niggles & issues with the Toyota Innova Crysta-img_5987.jpg

It was a surprise (and not so pleasant one) to stumble upon this thread . As most of your have reiterated, Toyota and niggles don't go hand-in-hand . The Innova was my dream car and to see all these issues cropping up in the Crysta really hurts. I can understand the feelings of all you Crysta owners, who have shelved in excess of 20 lacs to get the bullet proof Toyota reliability.

Since there has been no update on this thread for the last 18 days, i assume things might have started settling down now. I think we should give the benefit of doubt to Toyota for the below reasons:
  1. The Crysta is a new product and any product newly launched goes through its lifecycle of initial teething troubles/ niggles and takes some time for stabilization.
  2. With the Crysta, Toyota has tried to increase the localization/ indigenisation content (don't know the exact percentage, but it is substantially more that the previous generation Innova).
  3. Most of the complaints/ issues listed so far point to either the sub-par component quality or gaps in Quality Control. I hope Toyota will be very quick to react on this, tighten the screws in its vendors and its QC people as well.
  4. The only design issue I can think of, is the tyre bursting one.
I was the owner of a pre-worshipped Innova for one year. I wouldn't have sold it if I never came to know that my Innova had met a major accident and undergone a massive repair by the previous owner. However one thing stood out in that one year was the Toyota service, they strive hard to get a 10 out of 10.

Sorry to spoil the party, but a few more instances on the Toyota Innova Crysta - Official Review thread. Not many would imagine that this thread can even exist.

...My ZX manual is already rattling like a cheap entry level car! So many rattle sources...

Just feeling terrible. Sigh!

Some people have raised the volume a couple of notches to fix it, but I can just not deal with it, it bugs me. If Toyota cannot fix it I'm selling this within a month.

Hold off for Hexa I'd say, I'm considering it too after my fatal experience with Crysta.

BTW, I switched from Tata Manza to the 2nd Generation Toyota Innova (pre-owned) and my service experience (rather limited though, must admit) was quite contrary. Toyota's service experience was glossier - more smiling faces, more welcoming spaces, etc. but when it came to actual work done, delivery wasn't as good. Perhaps was unlucky, and hope it changes on my next visit to the service center. BTW - I never got any call to provide feedback/rating for the service experience.

Front fog lamps in my refreshed ARIA cost me Rs 2500+

Cost of entire tail lamp assembly along with 4 bulbs ( tail, brake, fog and another one ) in refreshed ARIA is Rs 1200/-

Recently traveled in a Innova Crysta Taxi for 200 odd KM. The rear bumper was broken and there was a dent in the boot door. The car as rear guard fixed. Driver told me, a biker hit the rear bumper, which led to the crack in bumper, dent in boot door and he has collected Rs 10000/- from biker for repairs

My ARIA was rear ended with a thud a by TATA SUMO at reasonable speed. All i got was 4-5 hair line cracks in bumper.
