Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

The car continues to surprise and delight me. After 2 year service the car has become smoother and nicer to drive. It returned a eye popping 18.3Kmpl over a 500Km.drive Bangalore to my native. This can rival hybrid cars if driven with soft legs.

Can you check if the oil used was 5w-30 or 0w-20. Thanks.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

In prep for Bangalore Summers (that would have been an oxymoron) a decade ago, can anyone recommend a well fitted window sun screen for the Innova?

Sun screen = the ones you can snap off when not needed, and either use suction or something similar to hold onto the glass.

The road side 100₹ ones I got don't cover the entire window.

We do not have any sun film installed and the bare large windows need some sun protection.


I'm hitting dead links from the older posts on the same Q.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

I'm planning to change stock tyres after another 5k km to reach 40k km. I'm happy with the stock tyres Apollo Apterra R16 205/65. Tyre tread is good and can actually run for another 10k km but for safety, i am inclined towards replacement at 40k km. Can you help with below questions? Thanks.
  1. Can i go ahead with same brand and tyre profile?
  2. Can i change it at ASC or Tyre dealer or purchase it online?
  3. Is there any rebate given for the old tyres?

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

Now I am facing some peculiar issues. Its a 2022 October Crysta Diesel Auto

At the 20 thousand service, Alignment balancing was requested as per schedule.

Everything before that was perfect, the car was sure footed, at any speeds it would feel like its on rails, but no more.

After the service, the steering has become excessively loose, even a slight twitch and it changes direction, at higher speeds it become so loose, it feels like there is no connect to the ground.

What could it be? Excessive Toe Out? I am going to saifee tyres in santacruze tomorrow, are they good at alignment and balancing?

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

You might want to check tyre pressure also Humyum. From what you've written, it sounds like a lot of excess air pumped in.

I don't think they did it. You might want to check the invoice once. Clearly an issue of alignment and balancing. For some reason Toyota showrooms do not get that right. Please take it to a dedicated tyres shop and they will solve it.

Also since you are at 20k, Toyota folks will tell you that your alloy wheels are bent. For that issue also take it to a dedicated tyres shop and get it confirmed before you take any action.

  1. Changing it to All Terrain tyres - will it bring better comfort (or) only meant for all terrain maneuver?
  2. What is the cost difference of All Terrain tyres to normal tyre?

+1 to both the points. I have left pulling issue that the ASCs couldn't solve it through their WB/WA, something wrong with their instrument or steps. They also told about "rim bent" during 30k service, will check with local reputed shop as suggested.

The alignment was out, waayyy out and hence the Crysta was behaving like it was behaving. I can't believe the service station can mess this up so badly. Camber was out, toe was out on both wheels, there was so much toe out that the vehicle was behaving like a race car on turns (We had been on a highway trip) and on straights it had no stability. Everything was set back as per specs. Balancing was done and I did a short high speedspin near bandra reclamation and it seems things are back on track. Balancing was done too and one allow seems to have a residual weight of 10 grams and was weight hunting, we put it on the rear left.

Before the service, none the wheels had such high imbalance, now one does. I am wondering, do service stations swap alloys by any chance during service with other vehicles and suddenly tell us that something is wrong? Is that even a possibility?

We have a highway trip planned tomorrow, will report after the 200 km drive how everything feels.

I have these on my Crysta and pretty happy. Visibility from inside is very good. I paid 10500 for the set which has 7 pieces including one for the hatch.

You don't have to stick anything to the window frame of the car.

Re: The Fuel Additives Thread

Hello,
I was just reading about the issues created by BS6 fuel in BS4 vehicles. As a remedy people are using various kinds of "jugaad" like "Liqui Moly" diesel additive, "Motul 2T oil and IPA" etc.
As I've BS4 Innova Crysta Z 2.8 which is nearing 1.1L kilometers, I would like to know if anybody of you have used such additives in your vehicle and what is the result. Should I be worried or just forget it.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

And the beloved Crysta turned over a much awaited milestone yesterday.

The 55555 was during March 2021

The 77777 was at October 2022

I was expecting to cross the 1L km mark much earlier, but the Crysta was patient enough when my attention was towards my Jimny offlate.

This beauty of a machine has taken me places. More importantly, it's got us back safe and sound with tonnes of memories across beaches, mountains, jungles, highways and the likes.

The rarity of the 2.8L AT is reminded each time I visit the service centre where I'm invariably asked on my plans to sell this and I keep getting unsolicited offers each time. Though tempting, I really have no plans to exchange this car.

A few random clicks below.

I purchased similar setup for Crysta, came as official Toyota accessory from my dealer Ravindu Toyota in Bangalore. Costed me Rs.5500 in 2017.

So reporting after almost 1000 km of running after the alignment balancing at Saifi's.

The steering still does not feel as solid as it used to before the service, but its better after the alignment but still not the tight steering that I was used to, it gets a bit lighter at 120 + speeds. Just to test I took it quite a bit north of 100's and it did not feel like my Crysta, steering was not vibrating but it did not feel like my old Crysta, it got lighter a tad bit lighter higher speeds, this is with the same tyre pressure of 33 all round, its like something you feel when there is a bit of toe out, amazing on corners but straight line stability is a little compromised. Did the tyre rotation do this? I don't know. The alignment when was done at Saifi's Santacruz was out and they did it picture perfect, I saw them do it on the hunters and there could be no flaw there.

Has anyone faced this with the Crysta before?
