Most uncomfortable car I've even seen

Most uncomfortable car I've ever seen.
Seats are extremely cheap and uncomfortable.
Myself, my kids any of my friends short or tall say the same thing, especially tall people. Show details

Extremely capable family vehicle

Had mine now for 12 months and love it. No mechanical issues at all. The 2.8L engine tows my camper trailer like a dream. The fuel economy is good but not exceptional. At the boat ramp it provides me very good traction and 4WD capability Show details

Generally very happy

just ticked over 110,000 klm. Overall happy with car. Seats are a little hard as is suspension. So run pirrelle tyre's at 30psi. For better ride. Towes well, 2500kg boat very well. Nice and nimble on twisty roads unlike Prado. 8.9l p/100 constantly. Have had PDF white smoke issues from new. Toyota have been very good in Hobart trying various things. Second replacement unit coming. Feel like I'll get 350,000klm easy as motor seems refined. Not sure what to get next. Love the discovery series 5 looks, but dam they have a bad reputation. So may well hang onto this for a few more years. Show details

Easy and reliable car. A Toyota through and through

Bought a 4x4 for the occasional family camping but mostly used in the city. It's a very easy car to drive, doesn't feel bulky or overly large (I'm a petite 5"2 lady). What I actually love the most about it is their maintenance flat rate/cap. I think it's only like 160-250$/service? My compact jeep renegade SUV (Not 4x4) costs me at least $400/service! Toyota is always a reliable choice. Highly recommended! Show details

Awesome car!

We purchased the top of the range toyota fortuner 2017.

Really loved the car especially the 4w driving side of it.

Spacious leg room , comfortable and luxurious leather interior. This car has also a built-in reverse camera and GPS.

We would say that the car is extremely reliable as we havent had any issues with it since purchased date.

Added the steel bulbar and it is just amazing.

A Very Good 7 Seat

After having 2 versions of Toyota Kluger in the last 10 years we looked at other options in the market with a minimum of 7 seats. The Fortuner came up trumps in terms of value for money and running costs. We bought the top of the line Crusade that came with all the bells and whistles (power rear door, leather interiors, navigation, digital radio, etc). It is noiser considering it is diesel but overall we are extremely satisfied.

Is there or will there be a fortuner where instead of the rear seats folding upwards and clipping to the ceiling, they fold down and away?

The prados rear seats do but I doubt the Fortuner will ever change. Mine are in my garage and I have a massive boot space

We have 2017 Hilux with the DPF issue. We complained and told Toyota to fix it. After returning to them twice they agreed. There is a permanent fix for it but you have to whinge and whine to get it done. We had ours done 1 year ago and no more white smoke. I have no idea what they changed but they had to book in advance a order all the parts required. They also said it would take them all day. Demand better guys!

I sold my Toyota and now have a Triton. Much better feeling! I wouldn’t drive a Toyota again even if I was given one.
