1997 Toyota HiaceReview
Great For Gear And Road Trips — Tons of room. It accelerates about the speed of a lawn mower. It does brake well. It handels great in a straight line. The quilty is very good. Runs great. No leaks. Low maintance. It's most likely the ugliest van. Check out the cool curtains. It gets about 350 kilometers to a full tank of diesel. Which I fill up every two weeks. This van is lots of fun on road trips. I have a great sound system in it. It can fit all my friends plus gear.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Lots of room
Cons: If you want to pick up chicks this car is not for you

Excellent Car. Highly Recommended
Performance: It's a little sluggish when it comes to speed, but it's got a lot of torque because of the diesel engine. And it has a cavernous cargo compartment. Build quality: This thing is solid as ... Read More
