1987 Toyota Hiace Van. SWB 2.4lt from UK and Ireland

Summary:

A Magnificent Piece of Engineering Thank You Toyota

Faults:

Torsion Bar Broke away from body on its on its first Doe, maybe the test was far too heavy. That was about ten years ago. It was repaired and I never had to replace it since. I had a problem with a cracked cylinder head at about 95000 miles and I had a reconditioned one fitted and also had a sleeve fitted to a cylinder. The van is still going well.

General Comments:

This Van has only broken down once in the past 16 years. I have used it every day and it never lets me down.
