Innova has run more than 1,22,000 Kms and battery issue got cropped up yesterday.Had to change the battery yesterday itself and costed Rs.5000 for it and Innova has been crunching more mileage like anything.Did 46000 Kms in 2.5 years of usage while after accident,did 40000 Kms in 2 years.Need to give the car for 1,20,000 Kms service as we are not finding enough time to give the car for service.

Had an highway trip in Innova today.Did around 250-270 Kms on highways and the car was full with 7 members on board.While coming back from the trip,the car was not starting at all and again the problem was battery itself but reached home safely.Need to give the Innova for servicing today as it has run 2500 Kms more(present odo is 1,22,500 Kms) and need to change the tyres too as the present set of tyres are nearing to end of its life.

The Innova had spent most of its time on highways last week and this week.

Adding pictures makes the story more interesting to read [cheers]
Sure will post the pics soon.

Anyways,our Innova has run 1,23,700 Kms as of today and he is more of a highway runner rather than a city runner(thanks to gram Panchayat elections),the Innova is seeing highway roads most of the time and yesterday,dad did around 200 Kms up and down to hometown.

Finally,gave the Innova for 1,20,000 Kms service at 1,24,300 Kms.I know its late but due to gram Panchayat elections and other commitments,had to give the car today.Got the bill around Rs.27k and replaced brake pads along with driver side ORVM,which costed me around Rs.8k.As soon as the Innova comes out of the service,I'll get the tyres changed to Yokohama Earth 1 stock size as the present tyres are at the end of its life and my service guy had suggested me to replace it ASAP and these tyres cost me around Rs.25k.

And,dad is willing to sell off the Innova as he wants to go for new Tata Harrier or Creta or Innova Crysta and due to increasing maintenance costs,dad doesn't want to keep the Innova anymore.

Got the bill of Rs.33k along with change of brake pads,steering tie rods and driver side new ORVM.Now,he has run nearly 1,25,000 Kms(donno the exact odo),with two back to back highway trips,which happened last week after service.Now,next expense is to get new tyres by this week and some other works which I will reveal it soon.

Got tyres changed to Yokohama Earth-1 205/65R15 yesterday and got my Innova's glasses tinted as summer has started bit early in Hyderabad.Yokos costed me Rs.23400 including WA/WB and valves while tints costed me Rs.4000 and changed the mud flaps too as I had lost one mud flap few months ago.

And,odo completed 1,26,000 Kms today with an highway run on new tyres today.

Innova has run 129700 Kms and nearing to 1,30,000 Kms soon and ran nearly 4000 Kms in nearly 40 days since tyre change and got Fastag too as we do highway runs a lot every week.

My dad did around 600 Kms within 3 days that too on highways this week.But we have no intentions to sell this off because we had spent ₹70k to rejuvenate the car and recently changed the front windshield too,which got cracked and got it done through insurance.
