Toyota Innova Service Cost History

Toyota Innova, as every one knows is an excellent Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV) selling around 4000 units per month in India. I too laid hands on one in 2008 December and has been using it ever since as a self driven vehicle.

There is no special need to review this vehicle as it can be summed up in just one statement.

"A no nonsense vehicle free of niggling issues and high uptime, which can transport 6 people in good comfort without fatigue for very very long distances"

More than 95% owners whom I have come across with are satisfied with their Innovas
Here I am sharing my service and repair history which will give prospective buyers an insight into what to expect. I bought my vehicle and is regularly servicing the vehicle at Nippon Toyota, Kazhakkoottam in Thiruvananthapuram (Capital of Kerala state).

Remarks:

Two accidents: Two bikers hit each other, one of them skidded and hit on vehicle left side underbody causing an inward dent. Not repaired as it is not visible quickly.
An Alto hit a biker, skidded and came right in front of my vehicle travelling at 80 Km/hr on highway, eventhough braked hard hit the alto at the rear, occupants didn't even know about the accident, bumper came out loose, fitting charges Rs. 100
Got lots of scratches on body, most of them caused by protruding branches of trees during my visits to hill stations and some probably by bikers or passerby when the vehicle is parked. Most of these are visible only from close range.
Two punctures, but both of them made the tyre flat only after the vehicle was parked in garage.

Details of year 2011 to follow.

Please feel free to ask any queries about the user experience, by way of comments.

Almost all my travels which I blog in http://subups.blogspot.com/ is made in this excellent cruiser.

I own a Innova for 7 years now. I bought one as soon as it appeared in the market.

My experience over 7yrs has been so trouble free, that it is amazing.

The most recent service at 65K cost me just Rs. 700/- which is less than what I pay for any Wagon-R periodic service at Maruti dealer (Rs. 1,100).

Even other replacements & Consumables are not rip-offs. I find Innova cheaper to maintain than my Wagon-R.

That's amazing.

I am a fan of innova. I owned a 2007 model and currently owning 2012 model. Over this period I could very much feel the deterioration or worsening quality at the same time such steep price hikes for each upgrade. My current car is still in warranty and already they have replaced the bearings of both front wheels, driver seat belt, some pulley associated with the steering and finally a fuselink which is not covered by the warranty(probably they themselves knew that it is of poor quality). I dont know what would get wornout after the warranty. This never happened in the earlier model. Now they boast of 6 airbags and I wonder if these would open in the event of any calamity. Just because they don't have a stiff competition they have been increasing the price without maintaining quality for more profits. IS THIS THE Q REVOLUTION THEY MEAN?
