My partner bought the 2014 Diesel Hilux 4x4 before the the funny front end and slanty dash come in has been a great car, compared to our friends 2014 Colorado which they have had problems very early its like they take it in with a computer error and just reset it without actually fixing the issue they've done this numerous times.

Have to say it this is Toyota country ANYTHING ELSE IS JUST PRETEND

I had a 2004 Triton which run like a dream , I done 4 trips to Sydney in it without having to touch a spanner .
Did the upgrade to the Amarok this year and so far no complaints , love it . Glad to see its not on the above list of issues :D
