Check the registration certificate and even the invoice if you have it. Last option is to call the dealer and query TKM's system with your registration # and VIN.

The Innova completed it's 10th year with us this March. I had just gotten the A/C Cooling coil replaced and was using it for a week as the Fortuner was in the garage for some body shop repairs. I was really happy with the car and had decided not to sell it.

The backseat comfort is supreme even after 2.5 lakhs.

I got my Fortuner back from the workshop and handed over the Innova to my brother. The very next day he sent me pictures showing that the fuel tank is leaking, AGAIN! We had just got the fuel tank repaired a few months back, this time we decided to source a new fuel tank and fit it from a FNG. Total expense incurred was 10,000/-

My father, however decided that he does not want to spend anymore on the cars upkeep (we had just spend 14,000 on the A/C, some more on Insurance, tyres and so on, all in all about 55-60 grand in the past 6 months itself)so we decided to sell it if we get the right price. Within hours of just telling people near us I had offers lined up. I got offers as low as 3.75 lakhs. In the next 2 days I found a buyer who was willing to pay 4.2lakhs for the car, which I thought was a fair deal for a 10year old 2.5lakh km driven car.
I had purchased it for 10,96,000/- so was still getting 40% of the money after 10years of rigorous use!
And just like this the Innova was sold a week before lockdown.

Some pictures of the Innova in it's last days of ownership with us

One last picture before I hand over the car(Look how teary eyed I am!(Just joking, it's the camera's flash)

We even found a replacement for the Innova, paid the full amount for it on 18th March 2020 and then lockdown happened!

Finally took delivery of the Maruti Suzuki XL6 Auto around a week back

And on that note we end The Toyota Innova Experience!
Was a pleasure owning one and good luck to the new owner

Needless to say the XL6 has big shoes to fill in. Let's see how it serves us. It's already done a one way trip to Kerala the very next day of delivery.

Hi guys,

I have a different querry and did not find a better page to post it on.
Has anybody been able to add a 2 inch (approx.) lift to the (1st. gen.) Toyota Innova?
If so then what do we do to the front suspension?

The front end (tow hooks) tend to scrape the ground in certain situations. I have also been very successful in scraping the crossmember behind the front suspension. Even though small scrapes wont hurt the solid chassis on this vehicle, sometimes we just wont be able to avoid them. It also saddens us to have to do this to our pride and joy.

I hope somebody has been successful in lifting the Innova. I do not look forward to heavy modifications, just something simple like adding taller springs up front. Don't want to alter the suspension geometry too much either.

The rear setup is as simple as it gets. No worries there.


Thanks.

Hi,
I would advise against lifting just the front. Your suspension geometry will change for sure. And adding just 2 inches will not make any perceivable difference to your approach angle either.

My advise would be to live with the car as it is and go slower over these obstacles. If you still want to persist you can check with Perfamana (Mods, accessories, body kits & upholstery - PerfAmana (HH Customs) @ Kozhikode, Kerala). I have seen them install kits on the Fortuner, no idea about the Innova though.

Thanks a lot for the info. Will contact them as soon as possible.

I did not mean that I plan to lift just the front. I didn't put that down as I intended. My bad. What I meant was that the rear, being a solid axle, would be much more easier to lift. I also have something in mind for the rear which I plan to do if and when I find a suitable solution for the front.

As you rightly stated, lifting the front alone would definately be bad.

Thanks a lot.
