I find them to be quite low for highway driving, and staying in high beam all the time comes with moral conflict.
I found two screw like adjusters behind the low beams on both the headlamps, but couldn't get them to move either way, thus the query.
Thanks in advance.
We got it done from the dealer itself since the owner's manual mentions that you should get it done at the dealer only but anyways BHPian sridhu did this on his own although he also recommends it to be done by the dealer.

Haven't experienced the same problem after that untill this trip and seriously it's a nightmare to go at legit high speeds with the concern of this heavy steering vibration. I usually stick to 100 - 120 KMPh throught out whenever I drive on the highways. The ODO is close to 29k KMS now and I plan to get checked during the 30k service interval.

Sankar, I remember that you have got the discs skimmed long back. Did it help?
Let me list own the reasons why the steering vibrates during braking and the reason for the discs reaching this state too.

1) When you brake hard say from 120 kmph to a standstill say for a signal and end up keeping your foot on the brake pedal, there is a phenomena called 'etching' which means it passes on the brake pad material to the disc, with a couple of such high speed stops and brake pedals pressed on the disc, the dreaded brake pedal vibration will start as brake pad material has etched itself on the disc, the only solution after etching has happened is to get the disc skimmed and you will be back to normal. Remember to always have your foot off the brake after a high speed stop, your discs will remain wonderful for a long time.

2) If the balancing is out, it would cause steering vibration while braking when you pass the unbalance point speed, overtime the disc will unevenly wear and even after balancing is got right, the steering vibration will remain.

3) Highly unlikely in a new car but if the wheel studs are bent a little or if the hub is damaged or bent, this can cause the steering vibration while braking too as the brake disc sits on these components.

If I had to root cause analyse your problem, I would start with point 2 first, 1st point then, and 3rd point last.

I hope this helps

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

It appears that some dealers are offering discount upto 1lakh on VX variants.

Not sure what the reason is and article doesnot mention any dealer in specific.

I got this done at the dealership also like others have mentioned. The first time around they adjusted them, it made no difference at night when the car was fully loaded. The next time I went in, I had them adjust the car while it was empty and then once again when it was fully loaded. The service manager called over seven employees to simulate a fully loaded car and the lights were once again adjusted. This time around, they were perfectly aimed. Not too high to blind other drivers, but high enough for me to safely see the road ahead. Suggest you ask your service advisor to do the same.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

Is it true that Rajpal Toyota, Indore has been removed by toyota as their dealer? I have been hearing this for a while now.

They had been doing a lot of malpractice like overbilling, under invoicing, cheating in service, etc.

My own experience was not very good. We were overcharged by about 42000 and that amount came back few months later when we finally got frustrated and had to write to Toyota India.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

Just saw my cousins Crysta closely. Car is good but very very over priced for what it offers. He paid almost 24 Lakhs still no top end model which is really sad. Toyota is just looting people. One thing bothered me - I started the engine and it shakes quite a lot and the gear leaver was shaking / moving like old jeeps which is really sad to see. I never expected this from 20 Lakh car. My half price diesel Ertiga don't have such huge vibrations at all. Gear lever don't shake at all.

Is it normal in Innova Crysta?

It was common in my old innova. I think it has more to do with the long gear stalk being exposed more than in your ertiga and being visible to our eyes.

It is common for manual RWD ladder frame SUVs and trucks, the reason is the gear lever movements on its mounts and unlike the FWD's, the lever isn't connected via rods etc, its more of a direct mount.

Not just Crysta, pick ANY RWD ladder frame SUV (especially diesel) and it will be there

As stated by VKumar Sir, it is very much normal for all ladder frame vehicles to have their gear levers dancing around while driving.
I have noticed that it shakes even more violently if the car is revved while stationary.

I drove the new Toyota Fortuner 2.8 4X4 MT today, and the gear lever didnít shake as violently as it does in my Innova Crysta 2.4 ZX.
Does the presence of the four wheel drive system have to do anything with the gear lever being more composed when compared to a RWD car, or am I missing something here?

Thanks for clarification friends .. Still i am not convinced. I am sure this issue can be fixed with some engineering. Gear lever dancing like cheap, old jeeps is not at all acceptable in such a costly, advanced car in today's world. I am sure Toyota is saving some money here.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

Acceptable or not thats how it is. Ertiga has a transversely mounted engine with gearbox sitting next to the left front wheel and gearshifter connected with cable. Innova has a longitudinally mounted engine with gearbox sitting under the gear shifter which is directly connected to it and it moves with the gearbox. In my automatic crysta there is no shake because the shifter is not solidly connected to the gearbox, instead its cable (similar to ertiga) and electrical wires.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

I tried looking for other threads and I believe this is the best place to ask this question about the Crysta.
We decided to go for the manual top end variant, Z 2.4 in grey. A month later, the dealership still says the said colour will be unavailable, and has avant garde bronze and white ready to go. I'm keen on getting the car soon, and three dealerships have denied the availability of grey. Should I go ahead and take the plunge for avant garde bronze? It is the colour I least dislike. Both dealers (Espirit and MGF) are quoting a waiting period of 30 days. Any insight would be appreciated

Since your preferred colour is grey, silver is the next closest colour that you can go for.
I personally detest the bronze colour & find white to be a little too taxi for my liking.
If youíre still not convinced with it, you can try talking to the GM of both the dealerships to get an insight & also try procuring the grey colour.
I am friends with the GM of Grace Toyota, so if you could contact me on ashubrah29@gmail.com (since youíre a newbie & donít have PM), I could try & talk to them for you.

Does not matter. We Indians love Toyota so much we will pay whatever they ask. At the rate Toyota is going we will hit 50L for the Innova in a few years
