  1. Hello, My 2009 Kluger Grande GSU45R powered tailgate was functioning with no issues (opening & closing) in the past few years. A month ago I tried to close the tailgate but it beeped, started closing and jumped right back, the behaviour is like the system detects a resistance of some kind. I have no issue when the door is shut and I open the powered tailgate, it opens all the way up, the issue is only when I try to close it. I took off the gas struts and got them tested by a professional and the reading came out good, meaning that the issue is not from the gas struts. I trie
  2. I have been hearing a weird buzzing noise coming from behind the dashboard. It's sounds like an old computer starting up or like a hard drive booting, very similar to when a CD player loads a CD. It comes and goes and when it comes, it's annoying. Could it be related to the doubled in? I have searched online and mainly it points to brake boosters and aircon servos. Has anyone had a similar situation? MOV_0002.mp4
  3. Hello Everyone, I have recently bought a toyota kluger grande 2008 awd. i have filled the fuel couple of times it just does not go beyond 62 litres while the tank can be filled till 72 litres. Can someone please guide me what information i am missing on? regards, Maaz.
  4. Hi fellow Kluger owners, I'm researching wheels for my Kluger, as I would like to change up from the current 18 inch stock wheels. I have come across some beautiful 22 inch Wald Jarret wheels, which I can import. Costs are similar to factory 20inch wheels from Toyota. Anyone had any experience fitting 22 inch wheels to their Kluger? Thanks in advance. Simon
  5. Hi all I am having trouble with my 08 kluger grande . Check vsc came up on the dash a good 6 months ago , scanner picked up bank 1 sensor 1 and sensor was changed. 3 weeks later lights came on again , same thing on scanner bank 1 sensor 1. So my dad had swapped the sensor to bank 2 . Lasted about 3 weeks again and lights came on again. Definitely same sensor so we have changed again for a brand new sensor and lights on strait away . Car is running fine , feel like it has traction and fuel consumption is between 11-14 which is quiet normal. Has anyone got any ideas on why t
  6. I own a 2007 Kluger, which has two wireless locking keys, and one Valet key. The wireless keys work as they should wirelessly, but do not open the doors manually. The Valet key and the wireless keys only open the luggage door at the back. This does not line up with what the manual says. Any suggestions? Jeff
  7. Hi All, Sudden noise the other night when driving home. Checked it out the next day and still persistent. From my googling efforts and reading forum posts, it seems like it is the infamous water pump. I am in Adelaide. Been quoted $1980 at one toyota stealership (typo) and $1468 by another for the replacement. The usual story is that it is engine drop and will take up to twelve hours. What are your experiences with this? Anyone had theirs done at a non Toyota Dealership? Please see video below that shows where the sound is coming from.. https://youtu.be/FNoV4xhn3fA
  8. Hi, just joined this forum. hoping the wealth of forum knowledge can help me with an intermittant problem with my 2009 Kluger Grande. this issue has only just started. The Alarm (sometimes) intermittantly goes off after 20 minutes or even 40 minutes after locking. all doors, hatch glass hatch lid etc are closed. has me confused. i was thinking a faulty door/hatch/lid switch but it does not show open on dash LCD unit? any one had this happen ?
  9. Hi, I have a 2013 Toyota Kluger which has developed an issue with the central locking. It started with one door randomly not locking / unlocking when either the key fob is used (both of them) or the door lock/unlock switches. After a while of this the door just doesn't respond. This process has now reached the fourth door and I think it will stop working over the next few weeks. The whole process has probably taken a few months all up. On its last service I asked the mechanic (dealer) to have a look. They have just said it's your door actuators which aren't under warranty.
  10. Hi All, Recently a Check Engine light showed up on the dashboard of my Kluger. My scanner indicates that there is an issue with a downstream oxygen sensor. While looking for a replacement, I've read suggestions that Denso parts should be the first choice for Toyota cars. However, It seems like there is barely any auto shop in Sydney that would sell Denso parts. I was wondering if you guys can suggest what would be the best place to buy Denso parts in Australia?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. Is it possible to install the Toyota Genuine Tow Bar and side steps from my MY13 Kluger to the new MY17 Kluger ?
  17. 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
  18. 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?
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. 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!
  22. 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?
  23. Hi guys, I own a Kluger Grande which I had driven for about 90.000KM already. I frequently use its built-in GPS to navigate around. I think I have the 14 Map DVD. I don't know what happen but the streets' names suddenly disappear. Only freeways and main streets' names are currently showing on the screen; other small streets' names in my neighborhood are not showing as they used to (Although I have tried to zoom in). How do I enable the the names again? I hope you guys could help me with this cause I have tried to play with all the buttons there but it doesn't help. Thank you very much! Luke.
  24. Hi, Just trying to find out how to get an update for my maps on my 2013 Grande. does anyone know where?
  25. 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 se
