Great vehicle great value

published

So impressed with this van. Much better than I expected. Built quality is excellent. Just listen to the way the doors close. Everything feels good quality.. I travel 200kms each weekday. Average 7.8ltrs. per 100kms. Very comfortable seats and driving position. Would like auto wipers as standard.. 13000+KMs now and all very good. Its service completed quickly and van washed and at fixed price of $260.. why buy VW or Mercedes.

Purchased in at Rockingham Toyota for $49,960.

Paintwork shocking

published

Bought the van brand new in feb 2021 .
Now have rust coming through under the rubber tailgate seal and bare metal around the drivers door where the rubber meets .
It has now done 60000 kms and I’m heading for the third set of tyres .
First ones ( Toyota ) lasted 21000 and were so low they were illegal .
Fitted better ones $1000 for 4 and now looking at changing again .
The wheel alignment has been checked 3 times .
Been back to Toyota , they are not interested in the slightest .

Starts and drives great but very disappointed in a $47000 purchase .

Purchased in for $47,000.

Life is Hi ace

published

Fantastic Van got a 2014 5sp petrol lwb from new
done just over 105k km now never missed a heart beat great work horse service regularly and on its 5th set of new Tyers . Only mistake toyota did was discontinued the 3 seater interior however the centre console is like a desk top organiser small gadgets to put nik naks in 4 cup holders Fantastic. The radio system is a little primitive but pumps out great bass. Cargo interior is a little shorter than my previous model 2004 hiace however this doesn't change my opinion of what is a great Van

Purchased in at Scifleet for $34,000.

The HiAce I bought was second hand, it was a 1984 model bought in 2003. I bought it to use as a camper and it was very cheap because it had a lot of miles on it. The previous owner had converted it to LPG and it had no seats.

As with all the Toyoras I have had experience with it was reliable, cheap and efficient. Never any problems with it and if there was it was minor and parts and service is easy and cheap and readily available.

The other vehicles I refer to are Toyota Camrys and much the same story. Highly recommended. Well crafted vehicles, efficient and reliable.

Purchased in at Private Seller for $3,800.

2006 2.5TD 3500000km and still going strong

published

No complaints, only servicing cost but it's a diesel and I haven't serviced it since 300000 apart from replacing injectors, timing belt and an oil change or two. I bought it with 120000km on it about 9 years ago. Been a brilliant car. Compact vehicle with a nice long storage area inside. Other similar size vans are too short at 2.4 in the back. Sure the cab is small but if you're a "regular size" person it's no issue. Seats are fine, comfort is fine. Be sad to sell it when the time comes.

Purchased in at Westside Auto Wholesale for $21,000.

Getting There

published

Finally Toyota has got rid of their old outdated set on the motor then the new HiAce is such a massive step in the right direction it has all the safety features which are amazing has plenty of room and a big plus is it has a very small turning circle but the only problem with that it shoes through the passenger front tyre lucky to get 15000 ks out of them on the negative side it does drink a bit of fuel 1 major negative point the seats are very very uncomfortable it has a hard edge when entering in and exiting the vehicle as a career this stuff to cause leg problems the drink holders are not the best the aircon vents are poorly designed but apart from that it's got so much going for it and a step in the right direction

Solid workhorse

published

This is the second of this series Hiace I have owned, both 3lt diesel, first one auto, this one manual. Do a lot of highway kms, probably around 60%, currently has about 257,000kms on it. The van is relatively comfortable, although a bit noisy on the highway. I have not had any problems with it at all other than after a bad batch of fuel I had to replace the fuel filter twice. The diff has been noisy for at least the last 8 years. The auto used quite a bit more fuel than the manual does. I change the oil and filters (air & oil) myself every 5,000kms, seeing I am not paying for labour it's not that expensive to try and ensure a bit of reliability.

Purchased in for $25,000.

767,000 Km and still a daily driver!

published

My 2004 Toyota Hiace fual fuel, 5 speed manual has over 767000 km and still going strong on interstate trips. Changed the power steering belt, engine mounts, and rocker cover seal. Its also due for a reconditioned or 2nd hand differential soon ($750 fitted).
Highly reccomended. Not selling it even when I buy a newer van which I will because my Hiace has no safety tech.

Purchased in for $4,300.

Happy to have Toyota representatives restore it a bit for me ! The gear linkages are sometimes sticky. Drive it from Sydney to Newcastle on the weekend and it didnt skip a best! What a reliable van! Never selling it.

Happy for Toyota to put in a new differential for me and loosen my gear box linkages but this Toyota Hiace is bulletproof!
