I love my car! It's fantastic to drive and has all the space we need and there is always room for extras.
So much space. I love the way you can move the back 2 rows of seats to just about anywhere in the back of the car.
Anchorage for baby seats is only in the middle row so the only way to access the back seats when baby seats are installed is to climb over them.
Car is enough strong and powerful to be relied on for both short and long journeys. I am a team manager and has been using this car to carry my team of 6 on daily basis for more than 1 year now. It is my personal favorite among the list of Multi Purpose Vehicles as the maintenance cost is comparatively low while the overall mileage and performance is very satisfactory.
Its a peoples car which is suitable for accommodating a family having mischievous children who needs more space and freedom than anything else.
Boot space is certainly an issue although can be extended by folding in some chairs which means I have to negotiate the seating capacity. Not very good when it comes to climbing up hill
My 1984 Toyota Tarago (the van ones) is a bit embarassing to drive with the family on board (it looks like a work van) but its got character. After buying an MPV i still kept this car because i just couldnt bring myself to sell it. Its served me so well, and because its based on a van body its amazingly spacious. Today i use it as a work van (with the seat removed) as i use to own an old hiace. This car does the job perfectly.
Dirt cheap now-a-days. Very reliable and very cheap parts etc. Heaps of room.
Engine is under the passenger seat. Very noisy and very slow (only a 2.0L engine). Feels unsafe as there is no bonnet.
This car i would recommended if you have a large family and like to go out to family outings and this car is also a fuel saver.
This car is pretty good because of its spacious 8 seater car that is great for family traveling. It also has a great interior in the inside and love the dash. It has a very smooth traction control great for city and highway drving.
This car sometimes can get hard to slide it back and forth. It also has a lack of horsepower and that it does not have cruise control. This car could also use a good sound system for the price of this car and also the brakes could be alot better for this size of car.
This type of car is good with lots of kids in the same family, or even for the people who only have three children, as on long or short trips you can seperate the children so one is in each section, so they have less chance to argue or fight in the car. This car has plenty of room for taking friends out to dinner, so only one person needs to stay alcohol free. there is plenty of room for close family, friends and grandparents. Some of the chairs can be folded to make more boot space, but with large families this is not always enough.
great people mover
not enough boot space
no money spend on this baby its as good as the day we brough it.
have a 2002 gli & the only thing it has ever cost is the cost of servicing.3 yrs & no break downs- no unexpected repairs;
WHen you think Tarago, you think of space, luxury, economy all in one package and thats what this car is about
Awesome! and when i say awesome i relly mean its just truly one of a kind. You can relax stretch your legs and sleep if you like in any seat in this car. Huge leg and knee space, 8 seater and a large luggage space.
Not very suitable for just driving it to the office.

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??
How do I replace spark plugs and what tools will I need
