Hi Guys,

What are the things to look in and out for when buying a Toyota Hiace LH 102? Short Wheel Base.

As a newbie driver I'm concern about followings,

  • Parts Availability
  • Durability
  • Long Drives
  • Hill Side drives
  • Fuel Consumption
  • Maintenance
  • Future market value

Any valuable inputs are appreciated. 

Or do you have any other suggestions? Im looking forward for a vehicle at this range to invest on.

 

Regards and Thanks.

Hi and welcome to AL,. !

You're talking of a vehicle around a quarter of a century old.

by this age, you'll get mostly mixed answers to your questions, 

Also consider any possible crash damage which has been encountered by the vehicle,

and critical maintenance like T.belt replacements

 

TT.

The LH102 was one of the earlier models of the 100 series with the 2L engine, which came out in the early 90s so find one in good nick will be a difficult therefore it’s best to keep some cash in reserve for repairs

 

1. Parts are plenty available, at least in Kandy or Gampola areas.

2. Mechanically they are well durable especially the engine. The L series engines were low stress simple engines.

3. Haven’t driven LH102 but have been in and driven 113/162, The are alright in terms of comfort but don’t expect car like comfort.

4. The 2L engine was not exactly a powerful powertrain hence it will struggle on uphill drives if the van was full of passengers and luggage.

5. No idea, but expect something between 8-12km/l

6. From what I have, they are cheap to maintain

7. Hiace vans generally hold their value well
