Good vehicle but.
This is a nice vehicle to drive, very spacious, smooth and fast for an SUV.
Fuel consumption is ok but not brilliant around town. For a base model you get enough to keep you happy. Toyota reliability went out the door under warranty, full $8000 auto replacement. Toyota fixed it so it says volumes for Toyota.
Klugers are made in the US now, not Japan and it shows, probably accounts for the transmission.
Services are not cheap if you use the dealers and follow logbook schedules. The car has done 100000 kms and has had front rotors replaced, automatic never failed, just developed a clonk which wasn’t normal.
Dumped it within the first year
Underpowered, under optioned, uneconomical, worst car I have ever owned and couldn’t wait to get rid of it before it’s one year anniversary. Dealer couldn’t even provide matching floor mats.
Purchased in February 2020.
The Seats are a real big disappointment, The Dealership was not very helpful after the deal was signed
Paid $69000 for a brand new Kluger Grande 2019 model, the driver seat has all the adjustments but the passenger seat don't have any except for forward and backwards, The wife and me bought the car together but sadly she will never have the same comfort level... (Better not tell her about this) Paid extra for the Grand model thinking were getting more but not so, the car looks old fashioned inside and gets dusty on the dash very quickly for no reason, there is nothing in the car that says grande..
The steering wheel gets sweaty pretty quickly,...(Don't know why they didn't use punched leather here to absorb the sweat) the side mirrors cannot curve in when parked in a tight spot. The rear loading section is not flat, is angled at about 15 degrees and is stupid because now we cannot sleep in the rear.. The engine is sometimes non responsive when needed and extremely heavy on fuel.... (What happened to Global Warming and Sustainable / Renewable manufacturing practices?? do we real'y need such a big engine?? The USB port is sooo hard to locate, took 3 months to find, (Just one port.. 4 Phones between the kids the wife and me, the rear seats are horrible uncomfortable, they can'not even fold right back.. No Bump protectors on the large doors, the sun visors don't even cover the full length of the door if used sideways.. No ventilation in the large armrest (vanity box, between the 2 seats), also no light in there, i can put my grandma in there and never find her again.. The rear roof mounted DVD is way to close, hurts your eyes.. No mute button on the steering or radio, the electronics in general, RADIO, GPS and ALL software on the LED screen is hard to use and feels outdated...
Purchased in November 2019 for $69,000.00.
Amazing family car
I use this car mainly for family transport, my everyday car. It has cotton service once as we just purchased it just over 6 months now which Toyota does every 6 months
Purchased in November 2018 at Toyota Dealers.

Questions & Answers
Brand new car. It seems battery discharged very quickly. Every time I need to jump start.
Even if I drive more than an hour today, next I couldn' t start the car, I need jump start. Dealer checked and said there is no issues.
Anybody facing similar issue.
Hi, I just bought Kluger GX AWD 2018 model. I want to install navigation system in it and want to change the Ac panel and want to install climate control panel in it. Is it possible? If yes then how and where can I do it?
Hi, I don't own one but am looking at buying one. I am confused as it says the GX doesn't come with sat nav. However looing at Carsales.com, I have come across 3 2018 model GX's that do. So either there is an option to upgrade the panel or some come with it. Don't know if this helps.
Can open and close window by key on Toyota Kluger GX 2018?
