Toyota Hilux SR5 2012-2013: What is the best engine?

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Sep 2018

The best engine for economy is the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel. The 4.0-litre V6 is a great engine, but it does consume a fair amount of fuel. In terms of reliability they are much the same. On average they would have done between 100,000 and 150,000 km. Pricewise they would average $28,000-$31,000. The main thing to look for is any sign of hard work or heavy off-road use.

Toyota HiLux 2012: Is 200,000km on the clock a good buy?

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Sep 2017

To fully answer that I would need to know more about the car; is it a 4WD, dual-cab, which diesel engine, and its condition and price, but in terms of longevity and reliability the Hilux diesel is generally a good deal. The key to future reliability is regular servicing, so make sure the car you buy has been regularly serviced and hasn’t been neglected in any way.

Toyota HiLux: Cruise control disengaging

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Sep 2012

No, you don't have to put up with it. It shouldn't be disengaging simply when you drive over a bump or similar, there is something wrong with it and as the person who fitted it the dealer is responsible for fixing it. Take is back and demand action; you have been sold a dud product.
