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.

We bring a few of these in, usually with a bit less kms, however they're hard to find now. This one has a few more kms on it, but still low mileage if you compare it with Australian varieties... In Australia, they often have 500.000 kms on it and still going perfectly stong. This imported model is a 4wd version, you can't buy them in Australia, hence we bring them over from Japan.

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.
