Toyota HiLux Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Toyota HiLux reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
What's the most reliable 4x4 diesel ute?
Buying a car sight unseen is not a good idea. I would go for on of the big three: HiLux, Triton, or Courier. They are all much of a muchness when you get to the used car market. The important things are service history, odo reading, and previous use.
What's a good second-hand car for $10,000?
Your budget will limit you to an older model, around 2008/2009, which will have higher kilometres, and be less safe and less reliable than a later model.

What car should I buy for $70,000?
You’ve pretty much covered the field there, so it should come down to what you want from your car. Do you want comfort, safety, fuel efficiency, offroad capability, cabin space? If you are mostly driving on the highway, then a diesel SUV is probably the best bet. I would rule out a dual-cab ute because of comfort, unless you need the flexibility a ute gives you. I would rule out a hybrid, they’re not at their most efficient on the highway; they’re better suited to town use. Based on your annual mileage I wouldn’t keep the car any more than 3-4 years, that way you’ll have a decent resale value when you get out of it.
Is the Toyota HiLux or Nissan Navara a better work vehicle?
I would rank the Hilux marginally better than the Navara, but there’s little to separate them. Both are similar for safety, rated at 4 stars they have the most essential safety gear in terms of airbags and ABS braking, the Hilux gets the nod on reliability, running costs are dependent on which engine you chose, and I would suggest you don’t buy a V6 petrol Hilux as they are thirsty, but the Toyota has capped-price servicing which makes it attractive.
What ute should I buy?
Petrol is really the best in your situations diesels are not at the their best in stop-start driving. I wouldn’t suggest a Great Wall; I feel they are still to earn their stripes in this country. Go for a 2.7-litre petrol Toyota HiLux.
Toyota Hilux 2014: if the production date is 2015 why can't I find reviews?

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