1996 Toyota Hiace Review
Doe swhat I brought it for
Not fast enough
Great Van — poerformance is crap, brakes are quite good, handling is better now it has been lowered. The overall quality of this vehicle is great, it has done over 160k now and still goes the same as the day IO got it. It is reliable touch wood, it is cheap to run being a diesel, and as long as you service every 5k you would have no problem
