Loved this car, just a little heavy on fuel

I only owned my Estima 2007 G for 12 mths, but I loved driving it. Incredibly powerful V6 3.5L engine on the open road is magic, but round town was very heavy on fuel (its a trade off).. but it had every possible feature you could want and it was great to drive. No body roll for a big car, good suspension, nimble in acceleration... if you have kids, it's the perfect car. If I had a hybrid version I would have kept it for the next 20yrs, fantastic car Show details

Excellent Road Trip Van

Fantastic vehicle for the family to tour the country. Has never let us down and gets good fuel economy 9l/100km. I have over 260,000 km and it still runs perfect just with minor maintenance ie oil changes and filters. Show details

This vehicle is truly a great design

I have had this car from 2013 to 2020, never had a single issue apart from changing the headlight lamp twice. As far as you service (oil and oil filter, brake pads) this vehicle on time, it lasts forever Show details

A disappointing cramped fuel guzzler

We upgraded from an older Toyota Hiace Super custom to the 2014 Tarago. we have 6 kids and I knew from the start it was too small but went against my gut and now regret it. 8 seats yes but don’t expect to fit a realistic family of 8 comfortably. 2 adults, 2 teenage boys and 4 younger kids and no one is happy.

Add the terrible fuel consumption of the 4 cylinder and it’s a big regret on my part.

For a smaller say 4 kid family zipping around the suburbs it probably do fine but a big family

Great and durable car!

Driving experience is great! Very smooth and great if your looking for a family car. I suggest if your looking for a car with better interior designs but less durability, get the Nissan Elgrand. Reliability is great and is cheap for its price. Servicing is cheap since the parts are basically everywhere

Family workhorse for over 20 yrs and still going strong

They say Toyotas last for ever and from my experience it has always been true. I also own an 90s corolla and both vehicles have out lasted the delivery trips from bunnings, road trips with the kids around Australia, up the snowys, etc. Performance is impeccable. Love the space in the vechiles. Love the rounded look on mine, i am confident it will keep going for another 20 yrs.

Perfect Family car

This is a great family car, drives very smoothly and noise is limited. The dashboard and interior are quite nice but now out-dated compared to other cars. There is a lot of leg room for the front two rows but a bit squishy at the back. It is not heavy on fuel which is + and is quite affordable to run it but we do have another car. It is a beautiful family car, with it seating so many people and looking so good.

I absolutely love it

last year I bought estima Aera g Edition. Very smooth Light interiror. ITs very elegant car. you feel like you are driving 2010 car. The engine is very storng and this model has a lot of features. Automatic doors. Moveble seats. Both windows at the back roll down. Its much better than tarago.

Great van for camping or families

Very smooth car. Also, very efficient with the gas. lots of interior space. the engine is definitely big enough for its size. You can take the seats out and have lots of room for moving furniture or even for camping. taking the middle seats off is not that easy though. overly, happy with the car.

If I remove the back seats, can the middle seat fold forward to allow for a mattress?

Depending on the configuration you can remove all rear and middle seats
