Should have listened to dad!

published

After owning a 2021 workmate, I decided to upgrade to the 2022 Hilux duel cab 4x4 so I could ferry the family around. I cannot fault this car mechanically, it’s powerful, quiet and returns 8.5lt/100km. The only negatives are the internal finishings scratch way too easily, the rides a bit rough without weight and the turning circle is terrible. All are small trade offs for just how good everything else is! 9.5/10 car for us.

Purchased in at Toyota Dealers for $59,000.

The fuel consumption is really bad

published

I bought a brand new Hilux 2.7 petrol 2022. I fit a full-size canopy on the back of the tray. I've been able to Only Drive 350 kilometers with one full tank of around 60 liters. I went to Toyota and I said to them your car has faulty but they said because of the canopy your fuel consumption jumped higher. Before I decided to buy this car I check the specification and it said an average of 9.8L to 11.8L per 100 kilometers. The reality was over 16L per 100 kilometers. I sold my car straight away.

Purchased in for $30,000.

Not such a great work ute.

published

Work ute for trady to carry tools and parts from base to work sites. This ute is used 5 days a week traveling aprox 120 kms per day. My company purchased the car in April this year brand new so it has only had its complementary service so far. We will have it serviced as per log book.
The driver noted that the hand brake warning alarm sounds regularly as the zipped fabric cover on the base of the handbrake holds the leaver up a little so it does not disengage the alarm. The gear box is clunky between gears, and the motor very thirsty.

Purchased in at Scarboro Toyota for $28,500.

Manual Gearbox + Tub = Fuel Efficiency

published

Comparing my current 2021 2.8L Workmate 4x4 manual with the previous 2019 2.4L automatic I had. Auto model had aluminium tray and I never saw less than 12L/100km....14L/100km was the norm. My current Workmate regularly returns 8.4 to 8.9L/100km with the worst being 10.1L/100km. I put the difference down to the manual gearbox and the tub body....oh, and having tyres to 40psi makes a markedly difference in bringing the fuel efficiency towards the 8.4L/100km figure.

Crude slow, noisy device with poor brakes

published

I have had to drive a Toyota Hilux ute for approx 3 years in my job and is driven daily. Brakes are very average and the rotors tend to warp very readily. In the wet it is lethal and very tail happy around corners. The performance is OK for a ute but very noisy. The suspension is very rough and has very average ride compliance. Has been reliable in a noisy, hard riding poorly braked ute kind of way. If you are ignorant of modern sedan/ SUV standards of performance, ride and handling you might be quite happy. One eyed Toyota fans in a vacuum of comparative information might like it Yes it is still performing ok with 279,000km on it, I do not like driving it plus it has that cheap plastic Toyota smell.

Purchased in for $29,500.

I’m not excited

published

Purchased this car brand new in 2021. The most obvious let down to me is the cheap plastic that gets scratched! I thought spending $50k on a car would get me a good quality interior but I was very wrong. The car drives ok but the turning circle is really bad. This was supposed to be my dream car but I’m not excited to have it and to have paid $50k cash for it.

A great, honest ute.

published

I have a 2017 SR5 4x4.
It now has 165,000 kms on the clock and has been trouble free so far. Have been up to date with all services. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because it lacks a little bit of power. I probably should have got a tune early on. That just me being picky though. Other than that it goes great off and on road.

2021 Workmate, single cab.

published

I agree pretty much with what JohnB wrote. Just returned from a trip to Canberra back to the Shoalhaven. Went via the Hume Hwy. This is the first long trip I have done in this car. Very unimpressed with the auto gearbox. The thing has no idea what it’s doing. Fuel consumption woeful. And as for traction, it was raining when we left Nowra and going up the mountain roads was a real experience. Had to be very careful not to loose it on steep grades and hair pin bends. Was actually a bit better coming down.
I’ll just have to learn to live with this car. It is a second car and won’t get a lot of work and won’t be doing a lot of long distance driving. So for that reason I’ll most likely be able to live with it. And also no INTERMITTENT WIPERS!!!
