I love my ute there's no doubt about it. With a 2.4 engine, 2 main seats with an extra cab plus tons of ute space there is little lacking from this vehicle that is lacking from many utes on the market.
Interior is good quality and didn't hurt to spruce it up with a bit of interior paint and a new stereo, whilst the exterior needed a repainting.
Reliability has been the key feature for me, and for a 2wd it has been across some seriously rugged terrain and I've never lost a tyre in it.
The engine hasn't missed a beat and due to keeping on top of checking the oil and water I don't think it will for years to come.
This vehicle has made a true blue Toyota lover and I'd definitely recommend a HiLux.
