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.
Great family car
Nice to drive
Good list of safety features
Popular, so better resale value
High fuel consumption around 13.1l/100km
Frequency of service every 6 MTHS or 10k
Cabin dashboard display a bit dated compared with rivals
Purchased in June 2018 for $55,000.00.

A great all round car. I would have given it a 5 stars if only it tech was updated to meet it competitors. They need to introduce apple car play to get the rating. But I am lead to believe they will offer an upgrade soon.
Purchased in January 2020.
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.

Good Car, solid engine, but missing key features
Had one of these as a hire car, only 6 months old with 10,000kms on it. The AWD version.
The good. : Rides well, lots of power and good on fuel. The inclusion of adaptive cruise and lane guidance are great features to see toyota finally adopting.
The average: The styling is typical toyota blandness , lacks any real quality feel or style. The entertainment system has no car play or any real function beyond basic blue tooth and radio functions. The usb doesn't even charge your phone as it doesn't provide enough power to keep it up to spee...d. Seats average comfort , but not heated or cooled seats, and no lane avoidance features, makes others like Jeep look like better options. No auto wipers but auto lights... good they got one thing right. The annoying: Constant beeping of the lane system made me want to hit it, the 1-2 minutes of it trying to connect to blue tooth each time you start the car, and the use of the awful stalk for the cruise system, and a left pedal manual handbrake feels like a 10 year old after thought. Overall it could be a good package, but toyota have just features out that are standard on others for the price.
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?
