Toyota Owner Car Reviews

2011 Toyota Rukus Build 3 review

  A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been provided with this review. This baby is a beast! A 2.4-litre hottie. It powers up the hills of South Gippsland with ease, and has an awesome sports-shift auto so you can relive your old manual days if you are feeling nostalgic. There's enough room in the back with the seats down to fit pretty much anything...

2007 Toyota Aurion Presara review

I was looking for a second-hand car and was tossing between a Toyota Camry, Toyota Aurion or Honda Accord. In the end, I saw this handsome metallic black Toyota Aurion Presara 2007 with beige/stone interior. I personally did not know much about the Aurion and had not done extensive research about the car. The Camry and Accord were much more familiar cars to me...

1989 Toyota MR2 review

I have owned this car for the best part of five years now, and since owning it, it has never missed a beat. The car is a 1989 Toyota MR2 1.6-litre N/A manual, probably Toyota's first affordable sports car. The party piece of this car is its mid-engine rear-wheel drive two-seater combo, which at the time was only found in very expensive exotics...

2008 Toyota RAV4 SX6 review

We moved to Australia from the UK back in 2013, and needed to find transport pretty quickly with work commitments and house-hunting duties giving us a three-week window of opportunity. We left a Mercedes C220 and a Ford Focus 1.8 behind, and were looking to buy one mid-sized SUV powerful enough to tow, it had to be reliable with decent performance, and have reasonable standard equipment including a sunroof and climate control air-con...

2018 Toyota CH-R Koba (2WD) review

I absolutely love this car. I'm so happy – it’s so comfortable, easy to drive, and looks awesome. I looked around a lot to see what I wanted. I looked at the Hyundai Kona and Mazda CX-3, but all the time I kept going back to the CH-R Koba. This car is so gorgeous to look at. The number of people who stop me and comment how much they love the look of my car is amazing...

2007 Toyota HiLux SR review

I bought the car off my dad, as I needed a new car and I work as a tradie. I wasn't the biggest fan of it at first, mainly the looks and how it drove, but over time I added my own touches to the exterior. The car is rather basic in terms of technology for its year, however it has all the main things you want in a car: AUX and Bluetooth, a semi-decent stereo system, ABS, and two airbags...

2003 Toyota Crown Estate Athlete V review

My car actually is a 2003 Toyota Crown Estate Athlete V. Quite a mouthful, I know, but you'll want to get used to it, because I guarantee you won't be able to leave the house in it without someone asking you what on Earth it is. The Crown was only released in Australia in the late ’80s, but the production of this car didn't stop in Japan, though, hence I had to buy one that was freshly imported...

2013 Toyota LandCruiser Prado GXL (4x4) review

Why did I buy a Toyota Prado? Let’s address the elephant in the room to begin: it wasn’t for the badge or the price. Everyone knows that Toyotas by nature are overpriced. So why did I buy it then? Seven seats, lots of cabin space, comfy seats, economical engine and reliable off-road abilities...

2011 Toyota Yaris YR review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied. I was really worried about the size of the Yaris, as I had never owned one beforehand. After driving one, it was hard to believe it was a small car. It has lots of leg room in both the front and back seats – and I'm just on 180cm tall – with lots of head room...

2013 Toyota 86 GT review

In 2013, I purchased my Toyota 86 GT sight unseen and based purely on the glowing recommendations from the world’s motoring journalists. What followed was an epic seven-hour drive down the Alpine National Highway from the dealership at Cooma to Melbourne. My initial impressions of the car were that the seats and overall driving position were excellent...

2004 Toyota Echo Sportivo review

Before my Echo Sportivo, I had owned a Toyota Starlet and found a chance to upgrade to a slightly newer car while keeping all the positives of the Starlet. These positives were Toyota build quality, fantastic fuel economy and nimbleness. I had been browsing the web for a few months for an Echo Sportivo to be listed for sale that was well looked after, as they are quite rare and some are not well looked after...
