  1. 2017 Kluger just had first service at 6 months/10000km. The dealer noted an oil leak "between the engine and gear box" but are not fixing yet. Should I ask them to? There is a new (wet) drip (highlighted) but no oil on the carport floor.
  2. Hi - Hopefully I am not repeating an old post. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips on popular performance modifications? Tune up possibilities for the Kluger? I have the 3.5v6 and I am sure its possible to get more Oomph out of the engine with a bit of tweaking : ) Also - Is there any basic maintenance people recommend other than the usual servicing? I have a 2008 model. Its going great at the moment. I've seen 'engine sludge' mentioned on other posts though?
  3. Hi Everyone, Has anyone had a steering problem on their Toyota Kluger? My Kluger Grande AWD nearly killed me the other night when the steering completely failed. I could not turn left or right. The steering wheel just kept turning continuously and unable to control the car. The incident did not result in death or injury to other drivers or myself but it was the most frightening experience I have ever had driving a Toyota. Watch the video. 20170811_195341.mp4
  4. Kluger ignition signal

    I recently built a battery box for the back of my 2012 Kluger kxr. It has a projecta Dc-Dc charger which needs an ignition signal to tell it when the car is running for the best charging. Does anyone know the best (easiest) place to pull an ignition signal from?
  5. Is it possible to install the Toyota Genuine Tow Bar and side steps from my MY13 Kluger to the new MY17 Kluger ?
  6. HI We are looking to convert our 2012 KX-S Kluger to LPG Gas. We have 102,000kms on the clock, we love the space and extra's the Kluger offers and don't want to swap to a new smaller car as we have teenage boys who are taller than us! However the Kluger loves the petrol and with all the city stop start driving it is costing us about $80 a week in fuel. Has anyone converted to LPG gas recently and what was the outcome?
  7. Aftermarket Multimedia unit

    Hi all. I'm keen on replacing the factory stereo unit in my 2016 Kluger GXL. Looking at a Pioneer 8850BT & maybe upgrading the speakers (Maybe a hideaway sub as well), will be installed by a qualified person too. Has anyone put in an aftermarket unit in a 2014-2016 Kluger? Did you have any issues, like with the steering wheel controls, or any other electrical operations? Thanks in advance for your replys. Jason.
  8. Kluger cam chain replacement

    Hi all, My sister has a 2010 Kluger (Australia). It was run low an oil and is now making a nasty rattling noise which seems to worst at idle. It's been like this for a few thousand k's without getting noticeably worse. Toyota has said it needs a new engine. Although a 3rd part mechanic thinks he can replace the cam chain and tensioner and it should solve it for $3k but it involves removing the engine. Do you need to remove the engine to change the cam chain and tensioner in these? Is that an OK price to do it? Would you take the gamble?
  9. Hey there, I am new to the forum. I am looking for a used Kluger under $15000. I just saw a 2005 model, and it looked way smaller in the boot than my friend's 2009 model. Was I mistaken? Does anyone know whether they grew a lot in the later 2000s ? Thanks in advance. jo
  10. 2013 Grande Maps update

    Hi, Just trying to find out how to get an update for my maps on my 2013 Grande. does anyone know where?
  11. Hi, Looking at a Kluger AWD. We currently tow a 1.5 tonne Bayliner and hubby is concerned with the Kluger's ability to pull the boat in and out of the water. Does anyone have any experience with this? Was the Kluger able to handled it well? Thanks in advance!
  12. Hi all, My 2011 2WD Kluger GSU40R will be reaching 40,000kms soon, and keen to give it a good service. Could I please get some advice on the following: Which fluid is recommended for the following: Automatic Transmission Brake Radiator Transfer case or Diff? (As it is a 2WD, I am assuming that there is no rear diff? Is there any fluid change in this space?) Power steering - Can't seem to find anything on this. Any thoughts? If the Toyota fluid is the best option for the above, then that's what I will go for. I tend to use Castrol for my engine oil service. Is there any other preventative maintenance anyone else would recommend for the 2WD Kluger? Thanks in advance.
  13. Hi, I am looking to purchase a Kluger, preferably 2014 + model with under 100,000km. I would be happy to buy someone out of their lease OR come to an arrangment for a depreciated business vehicle. I love this car but I am also a fan of looking out for other people. If I can purchase an excellent vehicle for a little less whilst helping you out, then this is mutually beneficial. I prefer to help out a family. Thanks
  14. Toyota Link Update

    Just bought a new Kluger last week. The multimedia system prompts that an update needs to be done. Tried many times, the update is stuck at 82%. Anyone had the same problem? If there a fix for that?
  15. 3rd row seat swap/sell

    Hi I have a 5 seater kluger KX-R 2012 and wanted to convert it into a seater, wonder if anyone wants to swap the 3rd row seat with a storage or want to sell the seat separately.
  16. service docs

    Just out of interest does anyone have access to this? (07-13 Kluger service manual). Are they concise? I am interested in the audio wiring details https://toyotamanuals.com.au/document/landing_page/kluger-service-repair-manual-may-07-dec-13 Unfortunatley the system doesn't support mac so it is pointless for me to subscribe. Sorry if this question is not allowed. Let me know. Open to PMs Cheers
  17. Hi folks I am looking to improve a few things on a 2013 Kluger Altitude. First issue is to get the rear entertainment system playing through the speakers. The result may just be plug in Bluetooth or FM transmitter but I would prefer it directly through the head unit. Second is to get the rear camera to play through the head unit, Not the teeny screen above. It is my understanding that it is possible, just depends on how easy (and cheap) it turns out to be. In regards to all of this, what is the wiring in a Kluger like. Are wires/cables etc installed in the factory and then not used for certain models or AU cars? I read somewhere that the AUX wiring for the rear entertainment unit is already there through the passenger A pillar??? is it a myth? I know that getting the rear camera working involves having the "reverse switch" activated. I checked mine through the head unit and it doesn't appear to be activated. Again is the wiring there just not used? Thanks for any advice you may have. Waps
  18. Hello

    Hey all Stopping by to say hi. I have a 2013 Kluger and want to try a few things, mainly audio video related but we will see how far I delve in to doing DIY stuff. First things I want to do are, get audio from Rear DVD to play in the stereo. Divert rear camera to main Sat Nav screen. See you all soon.
  19. I have a problem with my 2003 Kluger Grande also called Highlander in USA.Its intermittent but most of the time the airconditioner controls, sat nav, outside vent air controls and radio auto functions wont work. Sometimes it all comes back on and all works fine, but then it stops again. I have pulled the head unit out and wriggled the wires but cant find which one is the poor connection causing the fault. Does anyone have any ideas or experience of this? I have ordered an electrical manual which might help to track down the problem, but its very time consuming and frustrating! Please help anyone??
  20. Hi all I'm new here - I have posted this is in the Kluger section and thought I'd post here as well (please let me know if this is ok). I have searched through but can't seem to find a thread for this issue - please point me to one if there is one, thanks. I have a 2008 Kluger Grande and the control knobs have come off the unit - the ones that control the radio volume, on/off, tuning, etc. Mine is not the only one that had this issue - I test drove a couple of others and they had the same thing as well as seeing others since. I have taken the car back to the dealer several times and they ordered in new knobs and found that they could not fit them as they don't have the bit inside the knob to attach them to the unit. They have said that they need to replace the whole head unit because there is no way to repair or to attach the new knobs. They said that they will look for the exact same unit for me (which suits me as I'd like to keep it as original as possible). Anyone have a solution to this other than replacing the unit? Cheers, LA

  22. Hi All I've just purchased a Kluger Grande - (late) 2008 model and am loving it. A few little issues that I'm still working out with the dealer (yep - I bought from a dealership) and once they are sorted I'll be happy as Larry. I'm based in Melbourne. I chanced upon this forum while I was looking for a Kluger and there is heaps of great information on here. I look forward to reading and hopefully being able to contribute as well. Cheers, LA
  23. G'day all

    Hi, just found this forum when looking for some info on filters for our 2008 Kluger. Great car, not the first Toyota we've had, won't be the last either.
  24. Hi all, I am a proud owner of a 2015 Kluger Grande. I look forward to sharing my experiences with the group, try to help other member's queries and finding answers to my queries :) Cheers
  25. Hi everyone, I recently purchased a 2015 Kluger GXL and had some of the toyota accessories installed a week or so after pickup as they weren't ready yet. The accessories installed were front parking sensors, tow bar, roof racks and tinting. When i picked up the car, all the toyota link services worked fine (weather, fuel finder, local search etc), however after the accessories have been installed it seems that the Kluger can no longer use the GPS from my phone, so the services like fuel finder and local search just default to me being in Melbourne. I've taken it back to Toyota for it's 1000km service, and called the Toyota link hotline but there doesn't appear to be anyone who knows what the issue is. I've tried removing the battery for over half an hour, i've reinstalled the iPhone app, i've deleted all the personal data from the Kluger's media unit and setup everything from scratch but nothing has made any difference. Any assistance would be great. Regards,
