2005 Toyota Innova E 2.5 diesel from Philippines

Summary:

Reliable and fuel efficient car

Faults:

Battery warning sign went on whenever I heard a tiny squeaking sound from the engine. It must be coming from the bearing of the alternator. When that sound is gone then the battery is charging again. I experienced this just a few weeks ago when my kilometer reading was at 63,000 km.

The supposed turbo charged engine cannot be felt when you hit the 100 kph speed.

General Comments:

The car is a good and excellent family car. Spacious. Trouble free for the past four years of use. The suspension is still excellent.

The interior and dashboard are comparable to a car. It has a chassis and is therefore very rigid and stable.

I have not replaced my battery, and it's four years now and still good. This is the first time that my car battery lasted for four years.

Diesel consumption is fairly economical, despite its 2.5 common rail diesel engine.

2007 Toyota Innova 2.5 D4D diesel from Philippines

Summary:

Hopefully I would like to own another one

Faults:

Absolutely nothing.

General Comments:

This is a Toyota quality vehicle. Made for Asia only but surprisingly it is comparable to international standards. It has a D4D common rail injection engine, the flagship of the Toyota diesels in different displacements.The Innova model has a chassis for more rigid and sturdy operation in rough road conditions. A rear wheel drive advantage. The ride is very good with 3 layers of seats. The adjustable forward and backward front seat, the same with the middle seat which can be adjusted full back if the rear seats are not to be occupied. The city/ highway average is 13 km/liter.
