I purchased this Toyota HiLux new for $42,000 (including all on-road costs) and would buy this car again because I absolutely loved the car so far. It has been exactly what I wanted and more.
Nothing wrong with the car so far.
Ownership has been great. Car was exactly what I was looking for and needed.
Great to have capped price servicing. Toyota Service centre customer service can sometimes be a bit hit and miss depending on where you go but generally pretty good.
Would be nice to have apple CarPlay considering it is a 2019 model. The off-road traction control system is seriously impressive. Leaves all the other dual cabs behind off-road. Its pretty rare that I need to use the rear diff lock.
Fuel economy is pretty decent for what it is. I have a moderate number of external accessories and get an average of 10L / 100km, do a mix of city, highway and off-road so pretty happy with that. Tends to run out of guts when you are trying to accelerate at 100, especially when you have a bit of weight on board. You really need to drop down a few gears to get it going up hills or overtaking.
The safety suite is pretty impressive. The lane departure warning becomes a bit annoying after a while so I end up leaving it off most of the time. The AEB has come in handy, saving me a couple times when a car has pulled a dramatic move in front of me. The radar cruise control is reasonably good but sometimes will slam on the brakes for a car which is merging out of my lane and I am starting to go past.
Ride comfort is pretty decent and to be expected of a ute with rear leaf springs. Can be a little bit light in the rear over bumps around corners on country roads and jump out a bit but always pulls back in.
Headlights are pretty dim on the SR. Definitely requires light bars etc for night driving in country areas.
