Would you buy this car again? YES
I’ve only had this ute for about 3 months so I haven’t done to much off-roading in it. It rained a bit not too long ago and it was all muddy so I decided to see what it could do in the mud and it never let me down. It got through all the mud, never got bogged and it wanted to keep going.
It has some brake issues but it had them before I got the vehicle. I haven’t done any long trips in it except driving it back a couple of hours from where I bought it. I really like Hilux and their looks especially the dual cab ones with flat trays. If I had a lot of money it would all go on the car making it strong and better. I haven’t gone on the beach yet since the tyres I have are hwy terrain and I’m looking at getting mud terrain, since they are better for mud and look nice and chunky.
I am really happy with the car it needs a little body work but other than that it’s the best car I’ve had so far.
