2022 hilux single cab 2.7HiLux MK8.I 4x2 Workmate Petrol (2015-2023)
Was given this Ute as a company work vehicle. It currently has 29000 ks on it. The fella that had it before me towed a single axle trailer with it. His fuel consumption was between 14.5 and 17 litres per hundred ks. I have had the Ute for 6000 ks and also tow a trailer for work. I don’t put the Ute hard and with the trailer I always manage 11.5 and 13 litres per 100ks. Just depends on the terrain. When the Ute is unlaiden and no trailer, I get between 9.5 and 10.5 litres
Per 100ks. That is a mixture of hiway and town work. My latest fu

Excellent so far 2018 2.7 AutoHiLux MK8.I 4x2 Workmate Petrol (2015-2023)
Purchased my 2018 used (60,000 klms) from a dealer. Had it for 12mnths now. I tow a 17ft caravan and have had no issues with the engine or auto. The petrol engine has plenty of grunt for a heavy, solid Ute. The best thing is it's so easy to DIY service.Show details
Absolutely love itHiLux MK8.I 4x2 Workmate Diesel (2015-2023)
I went with the hi-rider single cab, bought 2nd hand from Queensland, for my everyday car in rural NSW, 3ry 60,000 km's in absolutely immaculate condition, like brand new, I drove up in freinds Rav, as I just sold my 15 year old Corolla ascent, the unladen 6 hour ride back was great on the highway, even on back roads it is no where near as bad as some reviews make out, and it is not harsh, it used 8L
/ 100km, and that was with A/C on ,I now have so much room for my kayak, bicycle, straw for the chooks,fire wood collecting, I love being up high, and love having a manual again, more fun to drive than an automatic, I love that is has no carpet to get in a mess with leaves and dirt, yay, so if your not a tradie this review is for you.
WorkhorseHiLux MK8.I 4x4 2.8L Turbo Diesel SR5 (2015-2023)
I've Just sold my 2011 SR 4x4 which never once let me down in all the years I'd owned it. I purchased the 2022 SR5 4x4 just to upgrade and mostly to receive a tax deduction for my business. I've been using it as a fleet work vehicle for a month now and have just really gotten used to it. Haven't 4x4 yet so can't stare how well the locking diffs work but the SR was magnificent off-road so would only expect this to be the same or better. I'm getting around 7 litres not towing, around 10.5 litres towing a trailer with mower etc on the back. This t... Read moreruck is not modified, you will lose fuel consumption if it is, just be aware but I've been there, done that in the past and the stock wheels, tyres etc are fine for almost anything you would ever need. Drives well, handles well, feels nice and high to ride in. All the bells and whistles a normal human needs without being too over the top. I really like mine and expect it'll just go and go and go.
Very average uteHiLux MK8.I 4x4 2.8L Turbo Diesel SR (2015-2023)
I have a 2022 4WD Hilux SR, and I must say it's a very average ute considering its high price. It has the worst fuel economy compared to other utes I have owned and driven. Additionally, I don't believe it should be called a 4WD since everything underneath the body is exposed. On one occasion, a stick ripped the return line from the tank, causing fuel to flow out and grease everything underneath the body. It even seeped onto the rear axle and eventually reached the wheels, making them very slippery. This resulted in a big slide that almost caus... Read moreed a fatal accident. So, if you drive this vehicle, be sure to check your return lines. On a separate occasion, the stick ripped the ABS wires on the rear axle, triggering a bunch of warning lights on the dashboard and causing the speedometer to malfunction. Fortunately, I wasn't far from home at the time. Should these kinds of issues happen to a 4WD ute with such a reputation? I highly doubt it. Sticks causing such damage? Seriously?
Great Ute but nothing lik my last 3.0LHiLux MK8.I 4x4 2.8L Turbo Diesel SR (2015-2023)
Fuel economy is horrible! Best highway av yet is 13.5L / 100kms. I believe the v8 75 cruisers get around 12 ishShow details
Good but not without faults and beware - the diesel particle filter.HiLux MK8.I 4x4 2.8L Turbo Diesel SR (2015-2023)
This is my third Hilux and in some ways it is perfect and in others, frustrating and a disappointing on minor but annoying stupid items. Would I buy again - yes provided dpf was rock solid.
Bought an ex gov 4 year old with only 65,000km from QLD Toyota dealer and transported to Vic. Single cab SR auto 2.8l diesel with aftermarket tipping unit to Toyota tray. I wanted the tipping tray. Middle of COVID and got a bargain. Immaculate , scratch free but only minor wear on seat. Fitted with window tint to reduce UV and aft
360k and Hilux still going strong.HiLux MK7.II (2008-2011)
Toyota just don't make them like this anymore.!
We've had this Toyota 2008 hilux from 60k as an ex blue mountains council ute. D4D 3.0Td dual cab. It's been everywhere, Gibb, Finke ,Birdsville you name it. Beaches aswell. It's been very well maintained ,but hell it just keeps pulling. And haul it does 2T anytime. 360k on the same engine, sure it's had new fuel rails and injectors etc but all the required stuff is done. Toyota clutches aren't the best either. Replace that.
No DPF filters or modern rubbish ,just core 4wd stuff. Fit them out the way you want. More electronics in the 2023 stuff is more to go wrong
Parts are pretty easy to get aswell ,it might be expensive but it lasts..
HILUX ...try and break one.
2017 single cab Toyota Hilux workmateHiLux MK8.I 4x2 Workmate Petrol (2015-2023)
This ute looks great and handles ok. But as for the fuel economy it is a peice of crap. I drove to Canberra from Young and back which is about 360 KMs in total and it cost me around $75 - $80 return. For a 4 cylinder vehicle you should be doing that distance for around $38 - $40 return. We have another Toyota corolla and you couldn't find a better car as the fuel economy goes. As far as the Toyota Hilux workmate goes I will never buy another one of these. They are rubbish. If I had of known that they were so heavy on fuel I wouldn't have bought it in the first place. And as for Toyota lying about the fuel economy per tank they should be made to take theses vehicles of the market until they can fix the problem with the fuel economy.Show details
VERY BAD FUEL ECONOMYHiLux MK8.I 4x2 Workmate Petrol (2015-2023)
Only got this a few days ago and have already used a 1/4 of a tank for 100km traveled, freeway and suburbs (No traffic and not pushing it hard at all) . Thats a whopping 19km per 100km. Absoloutely disgusting especially when Toytoa say you should get around 10km per 100L. And this is for the 4 cylynder with NO load on the back. Just the tray. This is my first ever Toyota and if the fuel economy stays like this it will be my last.
Auto transmission seems to be a bit all over the place as well.Show details
The Little Things Let you down, Poor Workmanship,HiLux MK7.III (2011-2015)
Over all its ok, But not what I would expect for a Toyota, The price is over the top from new. The electrics always playing up, especially in the wet. Cant keep front end wheel aligned no matter what, Suspension is rubbish from day one, After 40000 totally destroyed, Empty most the time. Whats standard in Dmax and most other vehicles is extra in Hilux. FUEL IS CRAP, Plastic from engine bay to all other parts of the vehicle become brittle after 3 years, crack break. Auto sluggish, cant make up its mind. Front rotors are horrible, bad vibrations when going down hill from day one...Normal apparently, Next Time a DmaxShow details
BUYER WARNING - DO NOT BUY A HILUX SR 5HiLux MK8.I 4x4 2.8L Turbo Diesel SR5 (2015-2023)
I'm the unfortunate owner of a 2021 Hilux SR 5 Dual Cab, my car has a vibration at approximately 850rpm. I've taken it to two different dealerships trying to get this issue resolved only to be told that the level of vibration is normal for my model/year. I've contacted Toyota guest experience only to be fed the same nonsense as the dealer. TOYOTA DOES NOT STAND BY ITS PRODUCT, DO NOT BE AS STUPID AS ME AND BUY A TOYOTA HILUX SR5Show details
Vzn167r dual cab great carHiLux MK6 (1998-2004)
Great truck. Drives a bit like one to. I use mine on and off road. Never lets me down. Great on the beach, gravel roads and climbing up and down harsh terrain. The rear end is a bit loose on bitumen especially when wet. So you drive to the conditions. It’s very versatile, Carries loads all day every day. Not great on fuel, I get about 400k on a 60 litre tank. The v6 makes short work of overtaking though. Very reliable.Show details
Got the Ute for work now enjoy it in retirementHiLux MK8.I 4x2 Workmate Petrol (2015-2023)
For the first 3 years I used my Ute for work , got it because it’s a low Ute to load, now I’m retired I use it for everything from tip runs to camping towing my boat , it has a great turning circle and good on fuel 550 kms per tank as long as you drive it properly . It serviced every 10,000 kms no issues at all not even a rattle. For me it’s just a great honest work car , I enjoy driving it , have no plans on selling it now I’m retired.Show details
Questions & Answers
I'm looking at purchasing the Toyota Hilux Rogue but have been told there are problems with this model. Most of what was said I chose to ignore as it sounded like "sour grapes" to me. However, one area of concern I did listen to was the Rogue going into limp mode. Is this an issue or a once off?
