You can't buy a better 4x4 pickup ANYWHERE


Absolutely nothing, not even a flat tyre.

General Comments:

This is the third Hilux I've owned, and I haven't had a single problem with any of them. I can't recommend these vehicles highly enough.

This is the 3.0 auto model, and it still returns 30+ mpg.

The interior is all leather, and considering it's supposed to be a commercial vehicle, it's very well put together, and has a comfortable cabin.

The general build quality of these vehicles is exceptional, and I've owned supposed top of the range vehicles and 4x4's that don't even come close to these.

I owned a Mitsubishi L200 briefly before this, but I didn't keep it long; I soon realised my mistake and went back to a Hilux.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
