Toyota HiLux 2007: Should I have to replace the clutch after only 10,000km?

Asked by Eric

THE clutch had to be replaced in my 2007 Toyota HiLux SR5 turbodiesel 4x4 after 10,000km. I was told by the dealer I was responsible because I'd been riding the clutch. In 20 years I've never had a clutch replaced in any other car, and I don't believe I caused the problem. Is there a problem with the current model? I know of two other guys who had HiLux clutches changed at 60,000km.

TOYOTAS have a bit of a history of clutch-wear issues when geared for highway work, as is the latest HiLux. But usually the problem surfaces only if you're doing a lot of low-speed driving or towing. This could be an explanation in your case, but we'll wait for other HiLux owners to contact us and see what they have to say.
