I normally stick to Toyota schedules strictly which means I did not change the oil at 1000 kms and instead waited till 10,000 kms.

One exception I have to the above rule is using Toyota Synthetic Oil instead of the regular mineral oil. All other replacements, I stick to the user manual recommendations strictly.

PS: Some of the replacement intervals also have a timeline attached to it and not just the kms. For example, the brake fluid replacement is 40,000 kms / 2 years whichever comes earlier. The Toyota software will miss the replacement in a regular service if the time has breached, but kms hasn't. So be mindful about that and ask the service advisor explicitly if they miss it out during the estimate. Happened to me during 60,000 kms service. The estimate missed the brake fluid replacement even though it has been more than 2 years since the last replacement. I had to educate the service advisor to get it replaced.

I had the same reply from Nandi Toyota dealer in Whitefield Bangalore, that it is not recommended by Toyota to change oil but one can also do the change on own accord. I insisted change of engine oil (after 1500 Km) and paid for the change and I am happy that I did it.

For BS4, Toyota has option of Mineral or Synthetic, where as BS6, there is no option. BS6 oil supposedly is synthetic, however I am no expert. The price is higher than BS4 mineral, almost double.

The photo I posted above is for the BS6 version and its not synthetic oil.

Yes, that's the only option available with Toyota for BS6. I am not sure if this is Mineral or synthetic or a blend, recall someone telling this is synthetic. The price though indicates this might not be mineral oil, which used to cost around RS 300/L.

That would be synthetic with low ash content to suit the DPF. If earlier oils are used then it's a farewell for the DPF. Also it's not correct to judge oils by their price. Synthetic oil is not always expensive in today's market. What matters is the viscosity range and the grade. Higher the viscosity band , more expensive will be the oil. For 5W30, the cost would be on the lower side. Not the same for 0W40 or 5W40 which would be expensive.

For same grade, i believe synthetic will cost more than mineral oil? Like 5W30 synthetic will be expensive than 5W30 mineral. Toyota for quite sometime now has been using 5W30 as I know, may be 5W40 long ago.

I think the unladen ground clearance is lower than 180mm in the Crysta. Did you face any issues with this during mild off-roading?

Has never been an issue so far. In fact I have the side steps installed and it has never scraped that as well. But I do not fly over humps and potholes and its a smooth crawl especially if the car is fully loaded in the interest of the third row passengers. Guess that works.

Since last few services of my 2017 Crysta 2.4 V, the service centre has been using BS6 engine oil which is costs over INR 4500. Earlier the oil change used to cost INR 2800. I was told by the service centre that all Crysta's be it BS4 or BS6 will be using the new expensive oil as per Toyota's directive. I found that counterintuitive but let them go ahead. Today I was going through the service cost calculator on Toyota's website and found that on selecting non BS6 crysta, the oil change was for INR 2800 while for BS6 crysta it was INR 3900. Wanted to check with other BS4 Crysta owners if they too are using the expensive oil or continuing with the original recommended oil. I hope the service centre has not been scamming me because I explicitly asked during my last service why are they not using the oil they used to. Also I hope the engine oil grade is same for the two and it hasn't caused any adverse affects as it may have been done atleast twice if not more.

Mine is 2019 Crysta 2.4 G.
Last oil change was done 9-October-2021 (during 20k service).
Engine oil expense was 2214+tax (approx 2613).

Will both of side of Crysta's 2nd row tumble (variant without captain seats)? Noticed that my office cabbies are only flipping the right side of the 2nd row seats to get passengers out from 3rd row and they says that other side is fixed. This is highly dangerous for a RHD country and I don't think Toyota will do it. Any inputs will be helpful. Been noting this for a while.

We can tumble both the sides. It's 60:40 split with slide and one touch tumble.
