  3. Carplay disconnects at the exact location every day. For folks from BLR - this is while I am crawling upwards in traffic at the Marathahalli flyover on the east
    bound carriageway towards HAL. This does not happen anywhere else. Not even on the same flyover when I am on the other side - usually there is no traffic and I mostly zoom through when driving west bound. I understand there might be some kind of interference but the problems is that once it disconnects - it simply refuses to pair with the phone again. I even tried turning off the car while waiting for the traffic to move ahead and tried pairing it but to no avail. It only connects after a complete shut off and some time has passed.
  4. Someone has mentioned this on a previous post - google maps has a weird offset from your actual location (this doesn't happen everywhere). I have seen it happening in the Varthur road between Jagriti theater and the Kundalahalli underpass. Happened multiple times and not a one off incident. The irritating part is that google maps is constantly trying to re-route. My understanding was that CarPlay works on screen projection and it should be using my phone's location but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Got a call from my SA at Nandi yesterday. They said they are still working with Toyota's technical team. According to him, they said there are complaints from every dealership in India on the GPS issues. He mentioned they might replace/repair the GPS sensors. The other HUD issues are also being looked into.

The issue with my microphone where my voice sounds muffled to people on the phone is not a very commonly reported issue but there are a minority who have reported it. There was no ETA given though as to when a fix would be available

Iíve booked my G variant with Nandi as well (Banaswadi branch). I am expecting to receive my car in a couple of weeks. Wanted to check who your SA was and how was your delivery experience. Anything to watch out for? Did you manage to get any discounts or free accessories?

Going by experience with Nandi Whitefield, please ensure to do a PDI, and again do an inspection on delivery date before you sign any delivery forms. My car had a deep scratch on delivery day that wasn't there on PDI so now waiting on them to repaint the panel. As of now they are not offering any discounts to compensate for the hours I was left waiting on Friday apart from the fact they are now giving me a car that has a repainted panel, before they could figure out what to do to get it fixed.

Thanks for sharing your experience. The product is priced on the higher side and these experiences drive away potential customers.

I am beginning to get the same kind of sales experience from Viva Toyota as well, with asks for documentation that I have never had to provide for any of my other cars, if I choose to go for external finance options.
I will probably go down the same route of cancelling my booking as well if this persists.

Disappointing that the pre sales experience has been like this and it sure does not inspire confidence in the post sales experience to come.

I would agree with you it is surprising to read, other Toyota dealers are behaving similarly. I used to own a Toyota corolla a while back in the US and I had gone in for an oil change, i was promised my car would be ready by 11:30 a.m. The service advisor come back to me at 11:35 with my car keys , says my car was ready but the apologized saying they went over the quoted time and said the services was free for that reason!

While that is one extreme the situation here seems to be the other end of the spectrum with dealerships not caring for customers just because they have demand. A lot of them tend to put up with such behavior just so that they can get their vehicles.

I booked in Nandi Queens Road branch. Had an excellent delivery experience. My SA Jithu was accommodating and didn't really push any extras. It is Toyota and a new model so expecting discounts would be too optimistic .

I got my own insurance. The chap who was managing the finance/insurance told me about how other insurers make you wait but the package from Toyota would be totally cashless. That sounded a bit..weird. All it took was a call to Nandi's service centre where they put me through to the service in-charge. They confirmed as long as its not a PSU like New India, Oriental etc. - it is all cashless. The SA didn't push much either after that.

There was some mandatory accessories of 4400 in the demand note for payment. I never sent it to them and they didn't pursue.

They did throw in free floor mats and mudguards without asking - so that was nice.

I requested a PDI and got the VIN beforehand. Once the manufacturing month was confirmed - the car was sent from the Banaswadi centre to Queens road for me to inspect. It was only after the PDI that I sent the payment.

Overall good experience at the Queens Road branch - will recommend.

Thankfully, today after a bunch of follow ups since Friday, I got the delivery of my car (Blue V variant Hybrid) - they repainted the scratched panel, looks identical to the factory finish (I'm sure a more discerning eye would be able to identify, thankfully I can't ), the Fibre cladding has been replaced and rest of the car was detailed. They threw in a decent discount on the accessories availed (side step, door edge guard, door sill light, and sunroof film) to make up for botching up the delivery. A full tank of petrol was fed to the car, and she's finally home now. Looking forward to getting the puja done at a temple tomorrow and some weekend rides to run the car in, and to get used to the dimensions of the car, coming from a Polo. All's well that ends well I guess.

Not totally sure about the esim but I'm guessing yes. All the smart features are part of a 3 year membership I think. Not exactly sure how much it costs post that.

I have driven just around 60 odd km after delivery so can't say for sure how the tyres are. Maybe some of the others who have had the car longer can comment.

I got the sunfilm installed on the sunroof, honestly I still feel a lot of sun comes through post this also, but with the sunroof cover on its been bearable, it's very early days for me though. So maybe get the car, drive it for a bit and then decide if you want the sunfilm on the sunroof.

Re: Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder Review

Has anyone tried blacking out all the chrome on their Hyryder? I'm definitely going to get the rear done on mine but I'm not sure about the front.

I plan to get the chrome between drls blackened and may try red wrap on the small plastic panel on C pillar between the roof and the body.

Should get the delivery by weekend or next week, based on RTO timings. Excited!
Are you getting it for new price as of 2023 or with old price

Re: Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder Review

Does Toyota have the boot mat for strong hybrid? Nexa does not seem to have one for the strong hybrid version. The mat of the mild hybrid does not seem to fit the strong hybrid
