Awesome car love it

published

I bought my 2014 model SR auto, diesel in 2014 and have done 55,000km. It gives me 800k out of a 65 liter tank in the city.
U can treat it as rough as u like and it loves it.
They don't have the highest horse power engine but it does me and my 850kg camper trailer just fine.

Is reliable

Got a 2013 sr5 update model. Does everything it supposed to do. Not as fast as some other 4wd's but im happy with it and at the time it was the 2nd cheapest of the popular 4wd's. The gps and reverse camera are a good idea cause im crap at parking and I got no sense of direction

Awesome ute. A little primitive compared to other cars in class

published

Good Tough Work ute, Get about 600 to 650 K's out of 65 litre tank. Dashboard is tacky but simple like the driver. 130,000 k's on clock now. Good size inside. Don't flog it and you don't have problems. Same as all cars. As ute is safety pack the over sized brakes and ABS are awesome. Wrapped and good for another couple years. A good Fourby. After mate bought current shape Hilux and very disappointed, next ute may be a D Max as friends and co workers are very happy with the Izuzu's.

Disgrace

published

I have a 2015 SR. It is a total disgrace. First gear is useless, grinds whenever I tr and use it. Doesn't have the tray carry capacity they claim it has. Has the up and go of a 2 stroke lawn mower. Will think twice before buying another Toyota, despite being a fan for many years.

Can't really complain

published

Honestly this car runs perfect only problem in 50000 kms were warped rotors which got fixed under warranty at Llewellyn Toyota (good people) interior is a bit simple and out dated, standard Tyers are too small. Good interior space compared to other competitors. Good fuel consumption. Love the stereo Bluetooth system.

I should've thrown my 50k in the bin

published

Bought a 2013 manual sr5 diesel hilux from Brian Hilton Toyota after owning a single cab hilux for 7 years. After 10,000k's the clutch needed replacing and again at 40,000k's and now again at 75,000k's. It also needs new injectors. I've only ever used it on the freeway and I'm half afraid to tow anything because of the clutch issues. Everytime I've taken it to the dealership I've been made to feel like it's my fault and it's a hassel for them to fix it. Needless to say I won't be buying another Toyota.

Perfect for the Territory!

published

My husband and I bought this car because we live in the Territory which has rough roads and needs a 4x4. This car gives me the comfort I'm used to and makes those dangerous roads much safer. I always thought a big ute would be noisy but it's quiet and the reversing camera makes it so easy to park. We love it!

Is this really a car, or did i just buy a golf buggy???

published

Last year i was seriously injured as my brakes on my brand new Toyota failed. I ended dup in hospital for a month and in coma for 2 days. I thought it was just a one off so i bought a Toyota after my accident, and month later the engine broke down. This was very upsetting since everyone brags on how amazing Toyota is. I am going to spread the word not to buy a Toyota. Not to mention my uncle's Toyota, the wheel was flat after a week of driving on smooth roads.

Great Cars

published

Purchased the car used and had done 75000 kms with full service history. Had it now for about 6 months and has never missed a beat. Been in friends single cab ute 4x4s and none of them are as comfortable and spacious as the hilux. Been off road many times and keeps up with lifted cruisers and patrols. Great on fuel. Stereo system is great. Tray space is great. Would buy another one in a heartbeat.

work horse

Hilux petrol workmate. have done 30,000k from new, so far no issues at all. Fuel consumption slightly above average, but it depends how you drive .Work mate was chosen for its reliability and good re sale value when it is time for me to upgrade. Primary a work vehicle but the following additions would make life a lot easier such as intermittent wipers and central locking. So far very happy with the vehicle.

Brilliant

published

I have a base model 2015 SR diesel, it is the best car I have ever owned. 715 kms out of a tank towing or not , I have a 2.4 ton boat and it towed it like it's not there, if I was a multi millionaire I would not change my ride , love it! Only pitfalls is Toyota Link - crap and stereo sound- crap , no colour but white available and no choice of interior colours.

Unbreakable or unbearable

published

Nice to drive, looks ok, the rear seat doesn't fold forward,losing lots of good storage, front speakers only, poor for a 2014 unit. The biggest disappointment is the power or lack of, couple up the caravan,1400 kg, what a pathetic effort up slow lanes or even worse a mountain, Toyota are way behind, a work vehicle, what a joke,so high geared and a crap clutch, why do they sell so many, certainly my last one.

2011 toyota hilux 4 litre.

published

4 litre motor is powerful but extremely heavy on fuel and noisey while idling and driving. My sr has only done 46000 k and sounds like a chaff cutter when warmed up and idling. Toyota by this stage should be producing trouble free cars. Never buy another one.

The Gladiator Of The 4X4 World

published

These utes are unbelievable they drive like a family car and pull like a tank. There's no stopping them they are so comfortable, it kills any other ute I have come up against. I work in the mines and we have all makes of utes. The rangers are nice but kept smashing out the front suspension, Navara's kept getting bogged and Bitsaremissin were dissapointing. Loved the Hilux so much I bought an SR5. All the other negative comments on here are just tossers, try all the others like I have then you will see the light


Öh what a feeling (reaming)

published

Toyota Australia - You are a joke a recall for the Hilux due to a fault in the spiral coil in the steering - My car has a fault in the spiral coil yet they are not replacing it because its a different part number (my car has stereo controls on steering) They want $600 for the part which I can buy OEM for $120. I have spent the last 3 weeks on the phone to their "helpline only to be messed around "by disinterested teenagers who cant get their facts straight. Toyota Australia your behaviour is pathetic and you are putting peoples safety at risk with this unconscionable behaviour.

Reliable Safe and Tough

published

I use my hilux for work and I am on my second hilux and lets face if this ute has a hard life when I'm driving it and when one of my apprentices drive it even harder
it's great on fuel economy which is deisiel the service costs are reasonable and I always take it back to the dealer for the services .the ute carries a lot of materials as I'm in the landscaping game and the tray can take heavy loads and a bashing with tools overall a good sterdy work car

I don’t believe so because of a model update and extra air bags ring your local dealer service department

Will a 2018 hilux tub fit a 2012 hilux

1 answer
Peter S.
Peter S.

It will but the contours of the tub and cabin are slightly different which shows when the tub is bolted up. The mounting holes are exactly the same so the tub will go straight on but the petrol cap sits low because of the wider late model tub. You will need to lengthen the wires to the tail lights and the tailgate brake light and the existing number plate light fittings are different.
