Toyota HiLux Used Car Review

The Toyota HiLux was the first ute to become Australia's best-selling vehicle (in 2016), maintaining its status in 2017. Since its release in 1968, the HiLux has gone on to forge a reputation for trusted reliability and 'unbreakable' toughness. A performance variant called the TRD (for Toyota Racing Development) and featuring a grunty supercharged V6 engine was introduced in 2008 though this lasted only a year in showrooms. The eighth-generation Toyota HiLux was released in September 2015, retaining its comprehensive line-up of body styles and variants but improving in key areas such as refinement and towing ability.

Pros

Cons

  • Latest model improves off-roading and towing ability
  • Vast range of models, from cab-chassis to dual-cab
  • Latest 2.8L turbo diesel more refined than older 3.0L
  • Renowned for its reliability and durability
  • Missing key safety features prior to 2014 facelift
  • Maximum 5-star crash rating from 2011 onwards only
  • Jiggly and bumpy ride when unladen
  • TRD supercharged model (2008-2009) could be a handful

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO TOYOTA HILUX

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: TOYOTA HILUX

Huge reputation for reliability hasn't been a fluke, and the latest Toyota HiLux continues that theme.

However, like any modern, common-rail diesel engine, the Toyota's is subject to all the caveats. Those start with fuel-injectors that can fail, comfortably within the first 100,000km. They're expensive to replace, too.

Injectors seem to wear faster with heavy use, so a HiLux that has been used for towing big loads is one to be wary of. A service record is absolutely critical to know that you aren't buying expensive trouble. We'd also be very careful with a HiLux that's been modified for serious off-road work. Not that they won't handle it, but everything wears out faster with harsh use.

Ex-fleet examples have usually been well serviced and don't present too much of a problem, but the one we'd run away from is the ex-mine vehicle. The seller will try to convince you that the vehicle has never been underground (in a mine) but that doesn't matter: The mining industry kills vehicles dead. Best avoided.

And don't pay extra for a car with Bluetooth: Toyota's Bluetooth was rubbish and even the dealers couldn't fix it.
