    10 Reasons To Consider If Want To Purchase Toyota Hilux 2.5 Double Cab 2.5 AT       

    Just want to share my driving and ownership experience after evaluating the car
    performance of my four months old new Hilux bought on April 2010. If you are
    thinking of owning it, please read the following experiences and product
    performance evaluation based on the unit owned by me, please bear in mind that l
    am one of the owners who is timely and routinely send it to the “Toyota
    Service Centre” for regular service for every 5,000 km bearing the Merit
    membership for being one of the loyalty customers.

    WANT TO BUY TOYOTA HILUX? 10 REASONS & OWNER REVIEW

    WANT TO BUY TOYOTA HILUX? 10 REASONS & OWNER REVIEW

    1.        First, you must be able or mentally prepared to tolerate and be patient with
    the situation of under-power performance: Based on my regular highway usage and
    after-service centre inspection, l can’t achieved the maximum speed of more
    than 100km/hour or 3.0(x1000) RPM, if you traveled on slanting or hilly road
    condition especially in the Ipoh part of highway. Please don’t waste your
    diesel even if you press the accelerator to the maximum. It just can’t go as l
    expect it for a 2500cc vehicle. On the normal highway, 140km/hr or 3 (x1000) RPM
    is the maximum l can go !

    2.        Accept the fact that old vehicle of other brand 4×4 vehicle will easily
    exceed your new car performance expectation when you travel on the Toll highway
    , Just like my experience , other older 4wheel car which bear the number plate
    of WPH of other brand can easily overtake my unit bearing plate number WTT
    easily while traveling on PLUS highway. May be there are some extra hidden
    security feature installed in my Hilux unit to encourage me not to speed on
    highway!!!

    3.        Thirdly, be prepared to spend more of your time to send it to the service
    centre for problem inspection due to the service centre that equipped with
    qualified personal to attend to it .As in my experience, they will ask you to
    send it back for whole day car inspection after l had complained but the end
    result is the same with the under-performing condition. Am told that my Hilux is
    in normal condition and the rest of their other units are the same performance
    as mine, so ask me to accept the fact of it!!! My second checking are
    rescheduled in different city (Ipoh service centre), can u imagine that they had
    put my vehicle in idle for 2 hours unattended and the very reason given was that
    they don’t have enough staff or technician to check my vehicle. So l have just
    to sit there and wait ….wait ….What a ridiculous excuse l ever heard in my
    life!!!!

    4.        Don’t expect any product explanation on the car features because you are
    expected to read the given car manual thoroughly on your own. For example, as in
    my experience , l was not even guided or instructed on the feature of the
    4-wheel gear usage during purchase or delivery or after-sales service. Even you
    asked the servicing technician …they can’t scantly told me the actual
    application.

    5.        Don’t stick to one fixed Toyota service centre even though if you are
    inconvenient in sending it to other location , In my situation, due to my
    working location, l have to send to the nearest service centre for regular
    service but after the third 10,000km service , l found that my vehicle can’t
    perform as the condition of before-service instead deteriorating ! Now l have to
    send my car to other city for checking and may be re-service to find out what
    wrong with this under-power performance even l have hectic time table.

    6.        Before you buy, must go for car test driving! My previous ownership of Toyota
    Vios told me that Toyota brand carried much weight in term of reliability and
    trust-worthiness in it product performance satisfaction, that is the reason why
    l trust and bought this Hilux without test drive. But now, the situation is
    unpredictable, l am deeply regret!!!

    7.        Don’t trust fully what advertisement that depicted. “ 2500cc with D-4D
    technology features a common-rail injection system that delivers atomized diesel
    at high pressure for a cleaner, more powerful combustion, for that extra punch
    in performance when you need it. This technology results in greater fuel,
    economy, smoother power and cleaner exhaust emissions” Based on my experience,
    l don’t buy it anymore!

    8.        Pride of ownership = Shame of ownership. I can’t feel any pride or
    satisfaction of owning it due to all the above situation . A small family car
    with less that 1100cc can easily exceed my Hilux maximum speed.

    9.        Be prepared for extra budget of disposing it if can’t fixed the problem. I
    am very disheartened and disturbed now because my work required me to travel
    extensively and the transport l have been eagerly want it can’t deliver and
    eventually it had affected my work performance. Now l had to but find the best
    way to dispose or get rid of it and incurring additional cost or expenses to
    replace with other brand of 4-wheel car.

    10.        Think twice ! Think Thrice don’t get regret like me  ….if want to own it
    !!!!

    KDI : Danny submitted his regret message into our email. thank you for sharing. Nowadays, there are a lot of complaint on Toyota cars. The service center also are not as good as before.

    Maybe they are really comfortable with their sales and good reputation before. This is a very bad issue. Especially when buying a car which is expensive. Not really worth for your money if you have big problem like this. So Toyota, wake up! You have bad reputation right now.
