2003 Toyota Hiace ZR 3.0L from Australia and New Zealand
Diamonds don't last forever... Buy a Toyota
Interior wise, these vans really don't stand up to the challenge; the drivers seat is well worn and the floor under the pedals is worn through to the steel (a replacement rubber mat is $1800.00 +GST through Toyota NZ).
It lacks basics (such as cup holders and air conditioning).
These vans were designed as a work horse, and a work horse it is. Mine runs solid for 13 hours a day 5 days a week (I am a courier driver), and it doesn't show signs of slowing down.
It also feels a little unsteady at high speed. (wider tyres may solve this)
These vans are good for a million KMS.
The gearing ratio is fantastic, and the fuel tank is massive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
