Summary:

The best car/van I have ever had (will never sell it}

Faults:

The radiator cracked two months ago.

Repaired rust along top of the rear door, This was at about 355000kms.

Drivers seat is badly warn. But still comfy.

General Comments:

This is the best van, I know the first owner and this van is coming up to 400000kms and the engine has never been lifted, It burns no oil, Putts along at 100kph fully loaded and even up to 160kph. Great for long drives, Very low maintenance.

My Hi Ace has done 380,000 kms with never a bleep in its entire life. It's travelled frequent long distances, on all sorts of roads. I've changed the shock absorbers, battery, brakes and tyres, and one alternator (Which I doubt was the problem, Autoelectricians are sharks!) It is without doubt the best vehicle I've ever owned! YAY Toyota and YAY again!
