YOU LOOKING FOR A GREAT 4X4, then, look no further, you have found it!
As they say 'Toyota.....King Of All Roads!'
I have a Toyota Surf SSR-X, have owned this vehicle for over 6 years and only had to change the tyres and put a new battery as the original ones had started to slow start!
They are very reliable on the road and great for towing, with little effort and good power for when needed. Good fuel economy as long as you don't keep 'red lining' it!? With my 96 ltr tank, I easily get over 600 miles (less when towing but not that much less) It all depends on the driver, how you take off and weather you have a heavy foot?
You have plenty of power when over taking and going up steep hills. You will also have to watch your speed as you can very easily creep over the speed limit without noticing it! especially on the motor ways.
Very comfy to drive and spacious for the whole family including dog!
Great climate control air con that works!
Toyota stock spares or can get them so you never have to worry! they can be pricey though but least they are genuine and not pirate parts which are NOT recommended as they don't last and cause a lot of headaches and break downs!
Servicing through Toyota is also recommended, not as expensive as some car dealers are.
Road tax is £190/annum, fully comp insurance is £233.71/annum with a clean licence and over 10 years no claim bonus.
I am very happy with this vehicle and expect lots of pleasure in driving it! will highly recommend this type, (3 ltr engine not the older 2.4 ltr) to anyone looking for a very good reliable 4x4 with out a doubt.
I know this vehicle will out last any other 4x4.
