One of the best 4x4's by far

AdvantagesHnadling, Performance, Economy, everything really.

Disadvantagesnot a lot

"The 3rd Generation Surf was introduced in late 1995 for the 1996 model year and ran until the end of the 2002 model year. Available only in the home market of Japan, other market variants whilst essentially the same, were marketed as 4Runners. Engine choices ranged from 2.7L 4-cylinder and 3.0L V-6 petrol's to 3.0L 4-cylinder diesel models, with the diesels having the option of an intercooler. This 3rd Generation marked a large departure from ..." Read review

Quick review of Toyota Hilux Surf

"I have had my Surf 2.4 for 5+ years now. The head gave me problems when I first purchased it. As it was still within warranty it was repaired twice by the garage I bought it from. Since then I have been on numerous trips to France and in the Uk and my other half said she would cut my goo***s off if I ever tried to sell it. It is brilliant!! My son desperately want me to "pimp my ride" ie better rims etc, but I am quite happy with her looks. I am going to keep it FOREVER!!! A bit thirsty on town runs , but long distance, I think is comparable to any new vehicle of it's size.GET ONE ! To hell with global warming... lol :)

Advantagesspacious, lovely to look at

Disadvantagesimported??

"We have had our Toyota Hilus Surf for 4 years and we have had no problems with it whatsoever. It is now 10 years old. We have not found a problem with it being a Japenese import, if you need any parts usually a garage can direct you to a local supplier (ours is round the corne!) I would advise you to shop around for insurance as some say it is hard to get - it isn't! I filled in an online comparison and then let people come to us, it worked! and from ..." Read review

toyota hilux surf 2.4td 1993

Advantagesultimate reliability. super tough chassis, body, paint. comfort. offroad.

hilux a drivng legend

Advantagesnever breaks, very practical

Disadvantagesold models looks bad

"...now I have had a Toyota hilux I must say I have been very pleased with it, at first I bought a hilux from 1985 for a very low price, this was mainly because of the damage it have had but I have never had any problems with the engine. The hilux is good to transport goods in, and with an old car like that I changed oil every 4500 miles not that the engine was using too much oil but just to keep it well function. It surprised me in a good way you can ..." Read review

Hilux surf - 10 months of ownership

AdvantagesGreat to drive, excellent on & off road and all mod cons

DisadvantagesNone so far

"I purchased the hilux surf ssrx from a local import company. It had low mileage (50000) and is in excellent condition. I have not had any problems with the surf & it continues to be a pleasure to own & drive. When you are behind the wheel you have a commanding view and driving position and other road users start to respect you! If you are considering one of these vehicles it's worth checking the following: Cost of insurance Fuel econemy (I'm ..." Read review
