An individual, no matter how senior, can always say he was misquoted or his words were taken out of context. The V3Cars article also hedges itself by saying that the gentleman did not give a direct answer. Had Toyota been open and honest about E20 compliance, they would have simply issued a press release and put this issue to rest for good.

Toyota along with Mahindra remain the only relevant and mainstream manufacturers who have not come clean on E20 material compliance. Itís not a coincidence that these two are also the ones with the highest waiting periods. Seems the strategy is to just get away with things for as long as they can.

Thatís really not done and did not expect toyota to take so long to fix this up. Toyota has been manufacturing hybrids for long now.
I am sincerely hoping that your friendís car get fixed at the earliest.

Once you have paid the full amount and car is registered in your name, there isn't much you can do. When you are sitting in the showroom with your entire family, after having signed endless papers and then finally being given your car, you probably won't refuse delivery. You will most likely just leave with the verbal assurance that is a small problem that can easily be fixed if you bring it back in the next day or during first service.

Re: Toyota Innova Hycross Review

From the entire list of accessories I was thinking to get the below ones done as these look like must/good to have. Thoughts?

- Fog lamps (are they any good?
- Mud flaps
- Front and rear under run (what exactly is itís use and what is it made of)?
- Door edge protector

I wanted to get the black wheel arch moulding however that is not available as accessory and only the chrome 3/4th shaped wheel arch is an accessory.

Can anyone recommend good/great mats for the car in Hyderabad or if anyone ships across India/To Hyderabad?

This question is asked to the OP of the post.

Is it standard practice (in Toyota purchases) for full payment to be done prematurely, to sign registration papers and accept car's delivery without ever doing a PDI?

Are these luxury imported cars? Isn't that brand called Lexus.

Why are customers getting arm twisted by dealers?

What is the need to abandon due diligence and caution for commuter car purchases?

The larger picture is often missed in such dogma.

Mate, there is a massive waiting list for the hycross and people are desperate to get their hands on the car as soon as possible. When all the leverage is with the dealers, you can get your arm twisted without even trying.

Other than Tbhpians, most people don't even know what a PDI is. In retrospect, it's very easy to blame the victim and say "why didn't you do this, why didn't you do that"

Steps taken by the "victim" are unknown, the OP is yet to respond to my query.

Questions were addressed to you, as it appeared you were a believer in the blindly-trust-the-OEM-with-vast-sums-of-money approach.

It was registered in his name and he stupidly bought dealerís promise of solving issue.

I am also facing similar issues on toyota i-connect app with my family's Innova Hycross Zx(o). All remote commands keep getting delayed and are getting timed out. I contacted Toyota customer care helpline aa well as the dealer but not getting any resolution which works. Can someone suggest a way forward for the solution?

Re: Toyota Innova Hycross Review

Hey guys, I have been offered a ZX(O) in sparkling black pearl crystal shine colour. My booked colour is attitude black. Has anyone seen this colour is person? Is it the purplish colour that was present on the crysta?

The salesman also mentioned 1% cess hike from next month in Kerala. I'm not sure if I should go for it considering the BS6.2 deadline at the end of this month. From our observations on this thread, the current Hycross isn't E20 certified.

Yes, it is the same colour that was offered in the Crysta and continues to be offered in the Fortuner.

According to the lighting the colour changes its hue, as can be seen in this video:


HyCross in the same colour:

It is not the purplish Colour that came in Crysta. That colour was called Garnet Red. I guess sparkling black pearl crystal shine would be a more glossy black. Go for it if you are ok to maintain the colour. I heard an unofficial rumour from Amana Toyota that there would be a price hike in April as well.

- Mud flaps
- Front and rear under run (what exactly is itís use and what is it made of)?
- Door edge protector
