Value for money
Great specious vehicle, probably you can live in it.
You must be a good driver as the van is big it is bit tough to park and get around.
Take fair bit of fuel though.
Good warranty period

2010 Market Value
Hi there, wanting feedback on the market value of a 2010 Hyundai iMax 8 seater fuel auto 170,000kms approx. The vehicle is service regularly. Clean and tidy inside. Had a touch up repaint.
Purchased in for $18,000.
The petrol engine is perfectly adequate, who are you, Craig Lowndes??!
I own a 2014 petrol automatic. I've just returned from a trip with four blokes in it, luggage and heaps of gear, vehicle was probably pushing three tonnes, the car was faultless.
People go on about the petrol engine being gutless. Yes, there is less torque than the diesel, but it's easily driven around...How you ask??
Just kick it into third via the button on the gear stick! The car was accelerating up hills this way, it's totally adequate. Torque peak is at 4000 rpm, let it spin there when you need to, and you will have no problem. It just r...
We use ours as a big family wagon, minibus and van. Getting the seats out is easy but they are heavy! Also the 14mm bolts holding the 2 rows of seats come out of the factory super tight, so you'll need a heavy duty rattle gun to loosen them for the 1st time. The petrol is underpowered and requires the use of the overdrive button on steep hills. The 2.4l engine is super quiet and might have enough grunt if it had 2 or more gears. That aside it is very quiet out on the road, not just for a van, it is very quiet, the sound system is good and the w...arranty and service from Hyundai excellent. There is lack of flexibility as the seats don't fold down. However you can carry 8 adults in comfort and still have plenty of luggage space. Being rear wheel drive and sitting over the front wheels it's quite a pleasurable driving experience with an amazingly tight turning circle. The lack of cruise control can be fixed with an aftermarket unit for $750, that's only 1 or 2 speeding fines so definitely worth it. Overall, it's cheap and it's big :) Update* On the Diesel vs Petrol argument The diesel is quicker The petrol is cheaper to buy, maintain, service, the engine is more reliable and the cost ULP makes the fuel costs comparable. The petrol is super quiet round town, the diesel sounds like a commercial vehicle. The diesel engine is known to be fragile and very expensive to fix
I love my imax
I have the diesel and it's a great drive. I love the torque of the diesel. Pulls like a bloody train and l get nearly 900km to a tank. I tried the petrol but wouldn't recommend. It's a very basic vehicle which suits me. Good mechanics and a great turning circle. Build quality is good and it's very solid. My only gripes would be:
The very rear seat can not be folded down to make extra room- it has to be removed (4 bolts and a two person lift)
There is no grab handle for the passenger but there is one for the driver. This is odd as the van v...

Great spacious car
Now have a had two of these, updated in June 2017. Current 2016 model is diesel instead of Petrol which has more power and tank lasts twice as long. So spacious for our large family, only wish it had more towing capacity as we will probably have to trade in next year to a more suitable vehicle to tow a camper.
The kids love it with a DVD player now and plenty of space for growing teenagers and the young ones with car seats.
The main issue/complaint is the latest models cruise control is terrible and very delayed at responding, probably not ...
Good engine poor plastic
We bought this car in 2014 and recently we started having issues where the dashboard fascia crashed and started to fall apart, cup holder also broke in the second year or so, power outlet socket came off in the third year.
I've also been extremely disappointed with the service centre where I take the car to get maintenance done but that's a different story.
The pros of this car is the space and and engine reliability.
Big family car
We bought our family 8 seater car in Feb 2017. We love this car cos it's a very spacious car. We just back from camping and we put even tower fan, 2 bicycles, 5 camp strechers , tents, blankets and all camp equipment into the car. Perfect size except the petrol is so so.
We understand the big car probably petrol is one of the concern. Other than that, the bluetooth is good too.
I love the air conditioning in the 2nd and 3rd rolls so my kids can adjust during the hot or cold day by themself.
One of dislike is the slide door is too heavy. I need to close harder.
Can't beat it for a big family
We've had this car for five years and we're in love. Not only does it cart us around (five kids two adults and a dog) to everywhere, we could pretty much live in it because it has so much room! The seats are normal size so even with 8 adults it is comfortable - the only negative is I wish it had cruise control and that the windows could open more at the back. Air conditionings pretty good!
Excellent People Mover if you dont fancy all the Bells and Whistles
This is in particular the 2016 Hyundai iMax TQ3-W Series II (Aug) -Petrol
We drove one of these as a hire car for 5 days. What a vehicle it was.
We use to own a tarago so i am comparing my though to a Tarago. (Base Model vs Base Model) - I'm not sure if the IMAX even comes in different trim levels.
* More spacious than Tarago
* More comfortable than Tarago (much roomier / ride quality)
* Very responsive to throttle response (6 adults and constant Air conditioning)
* It is a Very big vehicle but if your a car person you wont feel it tha...
Questions & Answers
The lights on the gears have stopped working on my 2016 Imax , can someone tell me if this is just a fuse issue or something bigger?
What is the real word fuel consumption of the petrol versus diesel?
What is the real world servicing costs of the petrol versus diesel?
Looking at one for rideshare and do about 5,000klms a month.
I have a 2015 imax, I’m trying to remove the sliding tracks out of the floor from the muddy row of seats. I have removed the two star headed screws but still not budging. What else do I have to do??? HELP
