2000 Toyota Tarago ACR30 2.4 litre petrol from Australia and New Zealand
In most cases these are great cars and are comfortable and reliable; I'd love a new one
The previous owner had totally cooked the engine by towing a heavy item.
Bought the car in good faith that the fan belt needed replacing, however, after replacing that and getting a really good service I found that it was burning oil a huge rate.
The previous owner had topped it up with fresh oil just before I visited to look at buying the car.
I have had an Estimata which is the UK version of this car, an earlier model and diesel too, and that was simply one of the best cars for reliability and comfort that I have ever bought, so I bought the newer version.
If it had been cared for properly and hadn't been flogged I would really like it; I have since put a reconditioned engine in and it runs well.
I'd buy a new one if I had the money. Time will tell if I have any more problems, but from past experience I shouldn't now have any reliability issues.
In most uses they are a great car, comfortable, and fast on the freeway.
They do get through bit of petrol, but they are a big car.
Air con works lovely and it's smooth and comfortable to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
