I had booked a toyota liva on 12th October, 2011 from Shinrai Toyota (nariman point, mumbai). I had done the full down payment and they promised me that the car will be delivered by 22nd October, 2011. Then they called me up on 20th of october stating that the delivery will be delayed for few days as there were some production loss. Today it is 10th november, 2011 and still they have no idea when will the car come. I have asked for a refund of my full money and they have agreed for the same. So my sincere suggestion to all the people who want to buy toyota liva don't go for it. They are having some serious issues in production and in delivering the car, they will take you for a ride by giving you false promises when you make the payment and then they will not deliver the car. I don't want others to go through what I have gone through.

    I think the pro avablem is with the dealer n not toyota as the car is easily available in our city.. Complain at toyota's website and things will be sorted out. Toyota has an extremely gud reputation in serving customers!

    This is your dealer's problem dude..I own a liva and its a amazing car backed up by strong customer support of Toyota. Complain on toyota's site and they will help u..I got my car delivered on the promised date..and also i didn't had to make the full payment on booking..your dealer is cheating u not toyota..

    I recently booked the Etios Liva Diesel GD recently like two weeks back; Does it come with car audio??? How about the engine noise at traffic signals; while you start at green; does it make lot of noise; I own a Maruti Swift vdi(ABS) too.. Compare??

    Please don't compare Toyota with Maruthi... Build quality of cars from companies like Toyota, Honda are uncomparable to Maruthi... I have seen Toyota Etios. Superb build quality. Ofcourse there are some cost cutting tactics visible in interiors. But, These are not bad as people saying. Look and feel of the interior plastics are not so good. But, these are reasonably strong. Moreover you need strong body and build quality for safer side. GD is a good choice and it doesn't comes with Music system. Go for your own choice of players in the market depends on your need/budget. It is a fantastic car to own it!

    good said ganesh. i too booked a liva for me. its a very good and very spacious car.

    toyota has normally only one dealer in one they r giving only poor customer satisfaction.but maruthi is concerned if we feel bad from ones service ,can go someother.also toyota sevice precision is concerned,our poor literate indians r doing service,not japanees technitions.also sevice cost,must be twice or triple than maruthi to etios liva..dam better to go for swift!!!!also its resale in india is amazing!!!!!!with cheap service cost

    i like to compare etios with swift on service front. swift D has a service interval of 5000 kms whereas etios D has a service interval of 10,000 km. also below a comment from the owner of swift diesel ---I just dropped my Swift at the authorized Maruti service station for servicing. It is the fourth service and hence a paid one. The estimated bill came to around 5500 bucks. Whereas from a etios diesel owner --- absolutely no issues with 12k kms on the Odo in 9 months. I continue to fall in love with the driving experience, no rattles, no seepage etc.10K servicing cost was 1185. so to calculate an average swift got Rs 1.10 per Km. whereas etios got Rs 0.10 per km. think which one is cheaper.

    jerry |07 Jan,2012 09:20:07 PM

    we are not standing in a garment shop to jump from one to another after buying a car for 6.5L. if you find anything wrong in the service write to toyota. they are better managing the service centers after analysing the market rather than just opening here and there with poor infra and poorly trained engineers. get into toyota service center and then question what is poor and in what world you are.

    Good!... I got the delivery. I drove it from Coimbatore to Chennai which was nearly 500 Kms at a stretch for 7 hours. It was really a smooth drive and not even felt tired. I have just completed the first free checkup after 1000 Kms. The next service will be after 10,000 Kms or 1 year whichever comes first.

    good said Ganesha. i too booked a Liva for me. its a very good and very spacious car.

  • Ramakrishna |10 Feb,2012 04:17:25 PM

    Hi Friends, I was wondering about the build quality of the CAR.... It seems that it is not upto the standard, and not as good as Maruthi vehicles. Toyota has made a trade of with the quality making it thinner and lighter to get more fuel economy. The dashboard material is very very delicate. The placing of the AC vents are also looks bad...on the dashboard. This is my touch on the Liva....
