I need infomation on this vehicle
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
Does the job!
Its clearly the best in people movers! Ours is a 2007 Toyota Estima G/ Tarago GLX, its an 8 seater and comes with dual electric sliding doors, electric tailgate, electric folding mirrors, bluetooth controls on the steering wheel, rear tinted windows, multi function display on speedometer, rear DVD player which plays from the speakers - ours comes with the $4000 sound system option
This doesn't feel like a van, it feels like an average sedan, when you go up a hill on low throttle it automatically chooses the right gear to g...
Amazing hearty car
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
2014 Tarago Ultima V6
The build quality is excellent, as one would expect in relation to a car that has been on the market for 8-9 years. In many respects the quality of the Tarago is Lexus-like. Personally, I think the leather is superior to the Mercedes.
The drive is terrifically smooth. The combination of the ride, engine and transmission is silky. The 3.5 litre V6 is responsive and always in the right mood.
As mentioned by others, the third row does not have ISOFIX nor does it have a latch to tether a child seat. It is, however, suitable for booster seats (chi...
Good family car, but that's it...
We bought the Tarago for family get around (the other is an Audi small hatch). It's the Ultima trim with V6 engine and full leather interior
Good practicality, huge boot, sits 7 and heaps of room. The leather seats are heated and makes it looks rather special. Two sunroof are good to have open on nice days to give airy feeling to the interior (glass cannot be opened though). Sliding doors are a blessing in tight car parks and loading in kids. Pilot style second row seat are nice to travel in as they have recliners and foot rest li...
2010 v6 GLi. Fantastic car for family with 3 kids
We are a family of 2 adults, 3 kids and usually my father-in-law too. We spent months test driving iMax, Odyssey, Carnival and looking for the best deal. Bought the 2010 v6 gli and couldn't be happier. Roomy, comfy, a shedload of power, can drive all day without getting sore, great to separate the kids, everything within reach. After years of paying out on Tarago owners I must admit I am totally sold on this car. I love it.
V6 Ultima bought with 203000kms on the clock.
Had it for a year so far and can't fault it.
Got it cheap 23k for a 2008. Powerful engine handles really well considering size. Smooth transmission.
Had a Prado, Kids much prefer the Tarago.
Love the captain seats in the middle row.
The electric doors, the electric foldaway seats. Everything works and keeps working.
Haven't even had it serviced yet. Better do that.
Engine Power, and those electric sliding rear doors
Light interior marks a bit easy.
Excellent people mover
We owned our 2000 Toyota Tarago GLi for 13 years - only tradiing it in yesterday. Nothing was wrong with it and we have never had any problems with it. We traded it in because two of our four boys are older now - in the higher teens - and don't wish to travel in one car any more.
It provided room for 8 adults - comfortably. The Tarago was extremely reliable - for 13 years. The Tarago was very easy to drive and great to park. I hope it is purchased by a family with a number of children who enjoy it as much as we did. Even though it is a big v...ehicle, it was economical with petrol. What helped make us decide purchasing the Tarago over other people movers, and we had viewed many different people movers, was that it provided air conditioning to the very back of the vehicle, whereas other manufacturers had their air vents only in the first and second rows of the car - leaving the third row without air conditioning.
My favourite car so far
I love the ergonomic design of the car, like a bullethead. My dad has been driving it for 7 to 8 years, and there have been any major problems, other than those caused by human error. It still looks brand new after that many years. The model I have is the GLI one. There are many seats, which is so comfy for a three person household like mine, where you can stretch your legs, or turn the seats into a bed. It is a good travel car, as my dad has used it to drive to other capital cities across Australia, like Adelaide. I would recommend anyone buy ...this car. Spacious, efficient, durable and long lasting, good travel car. I dislike the manual window openers? I prefer the automatic ones, but that is included in the GLX, which is more expensive. Only the front of the car has automatic windows, the others are manual.
Love tarago s
I am currently waiting delivery of my 5th Tarago, this is my first brand new one. A 2013 GLX. We have found them reliable, economical and comfortable. We are foster carers and need flexibility, we also take the grandparents on holidays with us regularly. Nice to drive does not feel like a tank, easy to park and they look great. It uses half the petrol of our much smaller Subaru forester. I have been driving Taragos since the 80s. We sometimes have 5 baby seats and booster with no issues. Love this car would recommend them to anyone. Very comfortable drive. I have sold the last 3 for what I paid so hold their value well. Sold privately as soon as they are listed
Style, comfort, fuel economy
Hard to get
Excellent Very reliable family car!
We are a family of 6 and we own a 2008 Toyota tarago glx. We bought it new and it has been a dream to drive since the time we drove it off the lot. I knew exactly what Tarago I wanted so had no hesitation In purchasing this vehicle directly from a Toyota dealer off the Internet.
It is our second tarago as we upgraded from the older style because of the back sliding doors. Our old tarago was always reliable and never let us down so there was no second thought In upgrading to the model we now have. A bit pricey than other vehicles of the same...style but you will get a very reliable and large family comfortable car! Highly recommended! Oh what a feeling! Great overall family car The dashboard display is not easy to see. I can't see the 'nearly empty' petrol light when it comes on because it is at the bottom of the dashboard display.
Excellent vehicle...if your thinking shall I buy...BUY!
Bought a 2001 Toyota Estima model...yes I know...it's the the Non Australian version of the Toyota Tarago... but very similar to the Tarago. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about it! Tonnes of room for our big family, doors on both sides for ease of getting in and out. Tonnes of space in the back and very easy for kids to get to the back without standing on the seats. Motor is not thirsty either, very economical to run. Would absolutely recommend for a large family. Also, is great for sticking a DVD player on the centre cieling and the kids were entertained on every trip!
Reliable, fuel efficient, aesthetically pleasing, back window tints, back windows also power windows not push outs.
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
We bought this model Tarago hoping it would be a safe, comfortable car for our family of 7.
It's been very reliable, comfortable and good on fuel.
The airconditioning is great, it goes right into the back so everyone is cool when needed.
I like the look of the car. I love that it has 2 sliding doors, it was what gained my initial interest. The air con that goes into the back is great when you have an entire car full of people in the middle of summer. The middle and back row of seats are on tracks that you can slide around to where is good f...
I always said I would never drive a Tarago but with bub no.4 joining our family we needed a people mover if we ever wanted to go out as a family ever again! I love this car!It is easy to drive and smooth, it doesn't feel as though you are driving a people mover at all.Parking is easy too, if anyone finds it hard to park the Tarago, then they must also find it hard to park other cars also.The only issue is that I am short and can't really see how much room I have in front when parking, but I am taking notes and getting better at judging it now. ...I love it when it rains and I can get all the kids in the car, we close all the doors and I proceed to walk around the car to do up seatbelts.I then walk back to the front,hop into the drivers seat and off we go! No more wet bum from it sticking out in the rain. There is ducted air con all the way to the very back seat so everyone has their own air, the seats slide forward and back on rails also.Seats are comfortable and the driver and passenger have arm rests. Also lots of cup holders for everyone and 6 different lights inside. Feels like you are on a plane trip with your own cabin! I would recommend this people mover to anyone with kids. You don't even need a large family. We bought ours second hand (5 years old)and it's price was VERY reasonable! Tarago GLX: So much space,well set up interior,easy to drive, smooth,very good on fuel Love everything about it!
We love it. Apart from the "Cons" listed above, both my wife and I love driving this vehicle. We (a family of 3) have many needs that identified the Tarago as the best vehicle to suit our needs. We often need to move theatre props and costumes (and other related bits) as well as a number of elderly parents in the eighties with baggage. I equate the driving experience to low level flying. It is not as economical as our 1994 SAAB 9000 turbo estate, but we average around 10 litres/100K at the moment. That can blow out if you get stuck into the sem...i-auto gear box and have a bit of fun without a load. Relax and take it easy - and the fuel economy is fine, but get the V6 is you need more power! Seats are comfortable - as there are plenty of adjustments. We do a lot of long k's in this vehicle and find it most comfortable and easy to drive. Lots of room, Reasonably flexible space. Great cruiser. Toyota reliability - and we need reliability being self employed! Can't remove the last row of seats to get more room in the GLi version - basic problem that should not exist on such an expensive people mover. More expensive versions remove the problem - but is should not exist! Period! Not comfortable with the instruments being so far from the drivers view - messes a bit with the visually impaired (us glasses users)
Good for families with young children.
We have a 2007 GLX V6 and bought it as a second hand at a Toyota dealer with having 96K on the odometer at the time of purchase. We have had this vehicle now for 1 year and are quite happy with it. Toyota generally has a good build quality and it shows on this vehicle. Sound proofing and suspension are good as well as the list of safety features and number of storage, which is quite handy.
Would recommend this vehicle for families with 3 kids or more who generally still use child/booster seats - very flexible. Mrs currently sits on the 2nd r...ow with our 7 months. Our 2yo and 5yo sit at the back. 2nd & 3rd row space, which is far more superior than any other 7 seaters on the market; Deep boot space on the GLX V6, which accommodates our double pram and still has room for groceries and other stuff; Ability to fold the 3rd row seat flat on the floor, which is ideal for moving furniture and other like; Good configuration of having 2 seats in the 2nd row and having the capability of walking thru to the 3rd row (this is very handy especially when Mrs have to attend to the kids quickly at the back); Good bright dash to display speedometer; Front & rear parking sensors are a bonus for this long vehicle; Very good adjustable driving lights for night time. Premium unleaded (95 RON) which is expensive; Beige cloth seat fabrics and carpet, which is not ideal for young families - would have prefered darker colours to hide those stains; No trip computer to display kms to go til empty; Spare wheel is not a full size alloy.
We love our Tarago. We initially bought it so we could easily accommodate 3 child car seats (instead of cramming into a sedan) but now wouldn't go back to a 'regular' car. It's a pleasure to drive around town or over long distances and has so far been easy to maintain.
Easy to drive, easy to see kids in both back rows (I recently hired a new model on holiday and couldn't see the kids in the back row very well). Easy to park, tight turning circle, reliable, reliable, reliable. More boot space in back than newer models and by flipping up one o...
as a people mover the tarago is second to none especially between 95-99.if you have a large family and a low budget very good value for money as they range from 10,000 to 15,000 depending on year and kmh.
lots of room made for moving people safly and comfortably, rather than cramping retro fitted seats 6&7 in 4 wheel drives up againts the rear tail gate.
my 99 GLI has cruise control and is used regulary as i do lots of family day trips ,has all the mod cons cd player(retro fitted) AC,airbags,elec windows, int ok remembering the thing is over ...
I enjoy driving this car, this model is not equipped with too many electric gadgets, it is responsive, toyota reliability and great family car
Go the V6 Tarago. Finally a reliable people mover made with real power - Aurion/Lexus engine. I own the GLX (2007) model, bought near new and its a great car. I have 4 kids (ages 3 to 12) and easy for kids to get in and out - 2nd row has captain chairs (7 seater), rear seats go into floor, comfort plus and I feel safe. Beats my previously owned Chrysler Voyager (2003 model) by a mile.
No trip computer, too much front end power
