“If you buy it, you are asked to sign the contents of the Euro4 spec diesel, thanks,” he wrote.

Furthermore, Liberty told me that when she first wanted to buy a Fortuner GR 2.8L, sales had required the car to use Pertamina Dex, but then sales it retracted his words.

“So when the car was delivered in early February 2022, the Fortuner GR 2.8 sales said the contents had to be Dex, sir, otherwise the warranty related to engine components will not be covered.

I asked ‘where is the statement which states that the contents other than the warranty dex are void?’ He called his superiors and got the answer that it’s okay. Bio’s contents. Then I said, if you really have to fill in Dex, at least there is an official letter or information related to BBM in the manual or statement letter.

I used to buy a Lexus RX200T in 2017 there was indeed a signature on the Lexus Menteng letterhead stamped with BBM, must be Pertamax Turbo, otherwise, the engine warranty will be forfeited during the warranty period.

Then 2 days ago, my WA sales said they just had a meeting for the delivery of a new car, a ‘letter like the example above’ will be given to the customer to be educated (read: forced) the contents of Dex.

The letter above is planned to be official and on letterhead. That’s the story. Well, what I’m asking is not about being able or not being able to buy Dex, but just avoiding misinformation regarding the specifications in the manual.

If it’s really required, please, what’s important is that the official statement regarding the warranty must be clear. Thx.”
