Toyota HiLux 2005 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota HiLux 2005 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Toyota HiLux 2005: What is causing my car to have engine issues?
A number of vehicles of your vintage using that engine suffered from a lack of oil pressure due to accumulated contamination on the oil pickup. Remove the oil drain plug and inspect the oil pickup and make sure it isn’t clogged up with accumulated crud that could affect the oil pressure.
Toyota HiLux 2005: How much is it worth?
It would be worth $5000 to $7000.
What's a a good family ute for $12,000?
With your budget you’re looking at quite an old model, particularly if you want a 4WD dual-cab ute. You’d be looking at something around 2007-2008, but my concern with vehicles that old is that they will have done quite a lot of kilometres. If you want a dual-cab ute, and it sounds like the best option given your needs, go for a Toyota Hilux diesel. The alternative is an SUV, such as a Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota Prado, but again you’ll be looking at older models.
Toyota HiLux 2005: What's a good price?
A rear-wheel drive model would sell for $10,000-$13,000 depending on condition, a four-wheel drive model would sell for $13,000 and $16,000, again depending on condition. With170,000 km on the odometer, yours would likely be at the high end of that range, if it were in tip-top shape.
