Terrible fuel consumption,

published

Fuel consumption over 12ltr/100kms, Automatic gearbox (artificial intelligent) has overcomplicated itself. Without a Toyota reset these vehicles don't go into 6th gear within the legal speed limit. They admit this is a large contribution to the high fuel consumption, but don't want to release it to the media.

Purchased in December 2018 for $56,000.00.

Reliable, cheap to run, go anywhere

published

Purchased new sr5 plus this year mainly due to reliability and style. Little slow but it is a Ute... drives great on and off road cheap to run for 4wd. Stereo is a little glitchy, interior is great and the whole thing is built well. I got a good price otherwise its an expensive dual cab compared to others. Mine has the upgraded system for dpf and Ive never had issues here, acceleration isnt awesome but power button definetly sorts this for overtaking and manual gearbox is effortless. I love it but have owned 4wd utes prior...its no passenger car

Purchased in July 2019 at Jarvis Cars for $48,499.00.

Not much bang for your buck

published

Gonna keep this short and sweet. Terrible fuel economy. The cruise control system is garbage and interior/speakers/ just the little things are lacking. Had a Mazda BT-50 XTR before this I’ll never buy another Hilux can’t wait to get rid of it.

Good ute

published

I brought a new Hilux twin cab sr5 in 2014 and it was a good ute except the cruise control was very touchy it would kick back even on the slightest of hills but besides that it was a good solid ute with plenty of grunt I had the 4 litre fuel injection petrol motor with 4 speed automatic transmission and it certainly never run out of power, the interior was a bit plasticy and the sat nav dropped in the screen which was fixed under warranty the seats where very comfortable and quite a good ride for a ute . The service was great loan car and capped price services is a good thing all in all a good ute .

Purchased in April 2014 for $51.00.

Good vehicle but not great

published

Brought the Hilux Rugged X as a boat towing vehicle and everyday work vehicle. Features for a $65K vehicle is quite low. Does not have a lot of the standard features you expect from a car this expensive.

All in All a Great ute

published

Our 3rd Hilux after 2 x 2007 models.
Have had no issues whatsoever, we run a regional electrical contracting company so vehicles carry plenty of weight. Fuel consumption isn’t great, but nothing with ladders on roof and bullbars/spotlights is.
Feels stronger in the chassis and driveline than previous model. Have done 80,000km in the past year now and it hasn’t skipped a beat.
Only downside is seats aren’t as comfy or shaped/positioned as well as previous model.

Purchased in March 2018 at Peter Kittle Motor.

Great vehicle

published

Done 55k,serviced on time by myself,never had any problems. I drive my hilux every day, usually 10 kms to work and back,no dpf issues ever. In saying that i do use the correct dpf oil at services and have minimal idle times. Have never had any driveline clunking i have read about either.I see people believe theres a fuel gauge problem, because they can only get 60 liters in the tank once the low fuel light is on.Isn't this simply a early warning system meaning fuel level is getting low and it will need filling in the next 100 200 kms?Unlike my previous new ute which had many problems from the first month i owned it until i traded it with auto trans problems at 90k ,this hilux was cheaper to buy and much more reliable than the ranger
