Good for family and touring
One of the front axle became noisy.
The engine is under power heats up very quickly to an alarming point it must have 2.2 engine.
Engine being under front seats not easy to work on for repairs very congested space it takes an extra hour to reach engine.
Electrical wiring and fuse box system is in close space.
Not easy to change flat tyre jack mounting are not secure specially when rear wheel is involved.
Mostly new parts are not available, but used one are available in junk yards.
This is my second Town ace in the span of ten years last one was 2x4 manual and this one is 4x4 automatic.
Recently repainted, engine rebuild by replacing old engine block with another used one having standard bores, replaced pistons and ring sets, crank grind, repair-service some other necessary part as I want to keep it for another few years.
Appearnce is impressive specially the SKY LITE gives the feeling of a convertible car.
Roomy enough for a family of six and still got space in the boot. Kids love to ride on this machine.
4x4 version makes it safe for the rough tracks.
Dual AC with a mini bar is worth in hot summer days.
Comfortable to drive with a long range visibility and easy to maneuver on tight turns.
Taking to a Toyota service centre is expensive for a 1987 model so I usually work my self or along with mechanic for repairs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
