FWIW I strayed into the dark side a few years back & bought a (new) Hilux, never again. I put 125k miles on it in 4 years & it cost me a fecking fortune & certainly wouldn't tick the "Economical to run box"
New flywheel & clutch at 5k miles
6K servicing (no wonder they last forever)
It used to eat front tyres, despite numerous visits to the dealers & several "4 wheel alignments" they never cured it. It permanently pulled to the left, one service manager tried to tell me it was because we drive around round-a-bouts anti clockwise, yeah right
It did around 22mpg.
Awful ride unless it had 1/2 a ton of gear in the back to soften the cart springs.
Turning circle of 2 super tankers, side by side, carrying a scaffold board between 'em.
Hiluxs', you can keep 'em.
