Toyota Kluger 2013: Radio replacement

Answered by CarsGuide 10 May 2019

It isn’t something that has appeared on our radar, but I can’t believe that Toyota wouldn’t be able to fix it. You should consult Toyota’s customer assistance people and lodge your concerns with them.

Best 7-seater under $30k?

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Mar 2016

You’ll struggle to get a 2013 Kluger KX-S within your budget; you would have to go to an earlier model to find one that fits. You’re right the Kluger is roomier, but thirstier than the Outlander, which would fit within your budget. You say you’re a family of four; presumably two of those are children who might be comfortable in the rear seats. It’s probably a compromise, but it seems the Outlander would be the better choice for your circumstances.

Toyota Kluger for value

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Apr 2015

On seven-seaters, the Territory runs last, the Kluger is fine and reasonable value and the Audi is definitely the car to reward yourself, but the Q7 could get very expensive if anything goes wrong.

Toyota Kluger 2013: FWD vibration when accelerating

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Feb 2014

It's interesting that the dealer has told you there is a problem, but Toyota denied it. I reckon I would believe the dealer in this instance, and suggest that Toyota is fobbing you off while they scratch their collective heads and try to work out what's wrong. I reckon it's an issue with the lock-up torque converter. Press for a solution.

Go back to the dealer and explain your concern to a more senior person. You should be able to resolve the issue on the spot, if you still not satisfied then take your complaint directly to Toyota.

Toyota Kluger 2013: Clunk in the front steering

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Aug 2013

Toyota is aware of the problem and issued an alert to dealers early this year. The clunking is coming from the intermediate steering shaft sliding spline, which is binding and releasing as the shaft turns. While they develop a long term fix they recommended to dealers that they replace the shaft, grease the steering shaft universal joints, grease the spline, and/or remove the shaft and work it up and down to free up the spline. They added that it is not a safety issue that is likely to cause a steering failure. Go back to your dealer and ask for an update on the company's efforts to find a long-term solution.

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Mar 2013

We haven't had any other reports, but on the surface it sounds like it could associated with the engine mounts, and I would be pressing Toyota for a solution.
