Excellent Road Trip Van

published

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.

Purchased in August 2015 for A$7,000.00.

This vehicle is truly a great design

published

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

Purchased in November 2003.

I absolutely love it

published

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

published

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.

I need infomation on this vehicle

published

This car has only done 75k which is very low for a car of this age and I would like to hear any problems if anyone has got one or owned one it has been very well looked after and in very good condition I am thinking of buying it but don't know about parts for an imported model

Amazing hearty car

published

I have had my Tarago for 11 years. It has only given me trouble when l left on the interior light. When you have 3 kids at all different schools, you need a reliable car. I am ready to update my car, but it is just such a great car to give away. The only gripe I have is that it is not the most comfortable car which was a 2002 Gli. Otherwise the car has been through thick and thin

OK

published

I would recommend for reliability and space but I can't recomendd for seat configuration. It is dissapointing that it comes with 2 lap belts and only 3 anchor points which makes it difficult for people with more than 3 kids in child seats/boosters.
Very room, nice driver seat adjustability. Nice to drive and very reliable. We have had a secondhand 2005 tarago for 3 years and have had no problems as all.
Having 2 seat with lap belts makes those seat virtually usless unless you use have a baby seat in the middle seat of the middle row. Having no anchor points makes the back middle seat usless in all circumstances untless you are comfortable with compromising safety.

I love this car but Toyota need to re-think seatbelts and anchor points

Best car for a med/large family who also carry stuff and need flexibility of space. Reliable, comfortable, versatile and would highly recommend it ------ by why, oh why, did Toyota stop making it!?!?!?
The space is brilliant, nothing quite like it in the market, so it's a real pity they stopped making it! This is my fourth Tarago in a row, since 1993! I was thinking of replacing the current one (new in 2004) so have test driven everything else and none have the space and comfort, so I'll keep mine for now.
Wish the handbrake was somewhere else - it's nice to have space between the seats (the old Tarago had the brake by the driver's seat).

We bought this car due to it's good reputation and are still very happy with our decision.
I would recommend to families with 3 or more kids however the seatbelt issue may be a negative for some depending on childrens ages and the new seatbelt laws.
I love having the extra space, with 4 little ones it's practical and comfortable.
It's great to drive, nice and quiet and easy to park. Also having a sliding door on both sides is handy for accessing children and shopping.
I do dislike the fact that as a people mover a car perhaps for the larger than average family it only has 3 anchor points and has 2 lap only seat belts in the middle seats.

The Tarago is fantastic! Ours is a 2001 up to almost 170,000km and never missed a beat. I love having 8 seats, it is so handy for taking friends and family. I think the boot space is great, because of the shape of the back and the way you can move the seats, you can easily pack lots in - I can fit all the luggage for a family of 6 and camping gear in mine - if you can't you are packing too much!!!
(and I never pack higher than the top of the back seat). The best car I've ever had!
Very reliable, Lots of Space, Good looking a very comfortable. Don't know how we could live without 8 seats now!
Expensive

Excellent, for this vehicle has large enough power to push itself to hold all the people inside the vehicle. Wonderful for touring the family around.
If you have a large family this car would be the untimate choice, giving a large amount of space for the legs and the large number of people who can sit in the car (who are the lucky ones). So many features found in the large vehicle which is good, especially for something so big. Space and comfort and performance is the most ultimate part of a car.
The boot cannot fit alot, for if each person had a luggage each it won't fit.

Best car we have ever owned.

Tarago XR 30 (2000-2006)

I have toed a pop top caravan, horse float & car trailer (no car) with my 2004 Gli Tarago & the inside of my rear tires have worn badly. My mechanic says to replace the rear axel & my best friend who is an automotive engineer says to replace the bearings. Fantastic vehicle & don't want to lose it, no oil leaks with only 261k on the clock & great fuel economy. What should I do about the rear end??
