1991 Toyota MasterAce Surf 2.0 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Good budget MPV alternative
Bought with an electrical fault as the starter was sticking. Sourced a second hand unit and replaced battery terminals.
Middle sliding door roller worn out, home made replacement done.
Power steering drive belt has recently become loose.
Very reliable 2.0 turbo diesel engine bolted to a usable automatic box with plenty of gears plus overdrive. Not a race winner, but a reliable plodder averaging around 40mpg on runs.
Large comfy cabin with good sized seats, good quality carpets and curtains fitted. Mine has the 6 sunroofs, 2 being removable.
Steering van like, and suspension sloppy and bouncy under load.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
