TOYOTA HIACE Used Car Review

This Japanese mid-sized light commercial vehicle, which dates back to the late 1960s, remains a favourite with Australian businesses. The latest, fifth-generation model has been around since 2005, so is getting on a bit though was given safety and fuel economy improvements across 2015 and 2016. The latter included the addition of a diesel particulate filter. The Toyota HiAce features a cab-over-engine van design that is rare these days and is available as a regular cargo-focused van, a Crew variant that carries extra people, or even a 12- or 14-seater minibus.

Pros

  • Vast, versatile load space - especially long-wheelbase models
  • Dated cabin design short on features and storage
  • Short on vehicle refinement
  • Awkward access to cabin
  • Four-star crash rating falls short of five-star maximum

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO TOYOTA HIACE

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: TOYOTA HIACE (2005 ONWARDS)

The HiAce bucked Toyota tradition a little by actually suffering a few design-induced faults.

The most serious ones were all to do with the turbo diesel engine, while the petrol-powered version seems to be much less trouble. By no means a widespread problem, there have been enough piston failures in turbo diesel HiAces to call it a trend.

Those in the trade suspect that it's a piston design problem, but there's also a reasonable rate of injector failures with this engine that could be a contributing factor.

The advice from some workshops is that the injectors should be changed every 100,000km as a precaution.

The life of the fuel injectors will be shortened by a HIAce that is used for heavy towing. But a vehicle that has been filled with dirty fuel can also be a problem as the contaminants won't be tolerated by the small tolerances inherent in the injector design.
