Toyota products are known for their low maintenance costs and reliability and this service experience of a Fortuner that has been driven for over 1,30,000 km will surely leave you pleasantly surprised.
You might think that the service cost of a big SUV like the Toyota Fortuner might be too much but this video suggests otherwise. Fortuner is one of the most popular and highest-selling full-size SUVs in our market. The sales have seen a boost after its arch-rival, the Ford Endeavour was discontinued (Ford quit manufacturing all cars in India in September 2021). After that, Toyota launched multiple special editions of the Fortuner claiming the throne to itself.

The YouTuber bought this Fortuner as a second-hand model which explains why this SUV has already clocked over 1,30,000 km. He takes the viewers through the entire service procedure from inside the workshop. Most of the tasks involving the service are regular that you would find with any car like AC filter change, engine oil change, etc. However, the YouTuber had mentioned certain specific issues like the handbrake being a bit soft and the clutch being a bit heavy. The mechanics fixed all these issues and assured the YouTuber that there is no need to change the clutch. This genuine advice from the service centre is pleasing to see.
