Visited the Toyota Service center & Showroom at Pathanamthitta, Kerala. Toyota Innova Crysta is displayed there. This time again received one letter from Hi-Tech traffic Enforcement Station. I found one app which is useful in such situation. But, I derail. I should follow the rules and regulations. Yes, Hence reduced the speed.

You have a very, very good camera, Mathew! And also a good lens. All the best. Happy shooting. :-)
Thanks HR.
Used the camera for covering an Auto Expo.
Do you have any suggestions or settings for Automobile photos?

I did not update this thread for some time. Mean time the vehicle crossed all six digits. Poor visibility today morning. Few attractions displayed at LULU shopping mall.
Due for next service, 70000km.

How much do you pay for maintenance ?
Thanks allhyundaicars.

The routine maintenance is reasonable. Periodic maintenance include, disc skimming, brake pad change, etc. This time the maintenance charge came to 14,000/- equivalent Indian Rupees.

I learned something new, Flash Guard., which is identical to Saree Guard in bikes. The engine bay is protected from wheel well using Flash Guards. This is made using special rubber materials.

Today visited the "Made in India" expo arranged by Indian Embassy.

Visited a Strawberry Farm, which is around 200kms away from the house. We covered the distance in less than two hours. The entry allowed once per week. We can pick the strawberry as much as we want, and bill will be settled on the way out. The farm is enclosed and made green environment using poly house. Few photos attaching.

Did not update this thread for some time. Time passed season also changed. Previous winter was little hectic. Temperature was very low on most of the days. Now, the weather changed. This time, we got sufficient rain. The vehicle crossed 75000kms, and it was time to change the tyre. I opted for Geolander H/Ts, made in Japan. It is costly.

The couple of days later, the rear left Tyre was showing signs of air leak. Upon investigation found the culprit. The nail/screw was on the side wall, and that too inner side. Did a sticker type puncture repair.

Did 5000km Service at Toyota Service Center, Pathanamthitta, Kerala during my vacation. I asked for Tyre weight balancing and rotation. No major travel, but the vehicle crossed 6000kms in 30 days. The showroom is also opened for sales on Sundays. Lots of Crystas' are selling. I saw this Crysta in the show room with Etios.
