Update - I've sold it!
OK, this is an update to my previous reviews. I've sold it. Due to the pandemic and the shortage of vehicles, I got so much more for it than I was expecting. After 5 years and almost 120 000km, I just couldn't bond with the car. My experience with Toyota Australia really spoilt this ownership experience for me.
I put a lot into trying to make the vehicle mine..upgraded the suspension, rear drawers and fridge slide, roof rack etc...etc. Fundamentally, the vehicle is actually pretty good. I never really encountered the DPF issues so many other ow...
Toyota's poor response
I bought this in 2019 for towing my 2 tonne van (around 2.4 laden) & for general use. It tows well but rear springs are so soft. The addition of air bags didn't seem to improve as much as my previous vehicle because of stupid size limit inside the coil springs. Only got a lift of around 15-20 mm with van weight. Appalling!
The car is fairly easy to drive but very bouncy on the bitumen. We initially got around 8.6 to 9 L per 100ks.
These Fortuners don't come in a five seater only in a seven, WHY?... Removing the rear seats was not that diffi...
Purchased in July 2019 for $42,000.00.
I am not getting the Toyota feeling
Hi, 2018 model, 50k on the clock. Car does country work and some towing. I am over it with, the dpf, mine does ideal 100+km/h running and I still have had smoking issues and extended burn times; transmission, no manual control unless you think limiting the highest gear it can change to is manual, my commute of 70km has no more than a 20m max elevation change yet it will not stay in 6th and often wants 4th, why cant the car access its torque? ans its got totally stupid tranny mapping, you cant programme the gps on the move and isnt that what p...assengers are for; ride is abysmal; service people cannot answer questions and when you ask Toyota they say ask your service people (catch 22?). I have have Nissan, VW and Audi diesels, they are much more fun and stay in top gear over any terrain once you're over 80km. Come on Toyota stop selling second rate products; I do regret this purchase, every day
Purchased in February 2018 for $55,000.00.
