“One of the best 4x4's by far”

published 21/02/2005

Hnadling, Performance, Economy, everything really.

not 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...

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 :)

spacious, lovely to look at

imported??

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...

None 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...
