Best car I ever owned

published

I bought my SR5 in 2014 done 223,000 some very long drives from Karratha WA to Perth WA and Sidney NSW to Tom Price WA with hotshots for mines. Car never give me any trouble just basic services and tyres. Never have done brakes on it. Drives much the same as the day I got it. Highly recommend the SR5 never let me down.

Purchased in September 2014.

poor ride/bad fuel consumption

published

had to upgrade suspension due to weight carried in the rear, also says its a 80 litre tank, warning light comes on when 12 litres left and sometimes 20 litres, the most I have put in it when refueling is 69 litre, can only get around 560 kms from a tank, vehicle is 250 kg under GVM, so its not over loaded, this is sitting on a speed of 110km WA, and some driving around town, poor fuel economy for a 4 cylinder.

Purchased in September 2019.

7 Years & 220,000KM - Zero Issues!

published

Purchased our current Hilux new in 2013 and as of January 2020, still own it with no plans to sell. Have done 220,000km in that time and have only done standard servicing in that time - nothing has failed and we have had zero breakdowns.

Is it the best or most capable 4wd on the market? No, but it has been outstandingly reliable for us with a mix of daily driving, dirt roads, offroad touring, towing a van, beach driving and more.

Keep up the servicing and they are a tough little unit!

Purchased in June 2013 for $42,000.00.

Great work horse, not a problem!

published

So reliable 1984 model was voted most reliable car ever. Love my luxey. Have a workmate 4+2 man and tows so easily put near 1 tonne in it every day handles so well. had a triton and hated it didn’t tow well or handle weight. Hilux is total opposite. Search top gear Hilux to watch a 3 part short film on trying to ‘kill’ one.

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.

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

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 .

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.
