The 5th gen. Hilux double cabin pickup (1988-1997) is known all over the world for its legendary durability and ruggedness.It has been called as an unbreakable vehicle despite using and 'abusing it' and even nowadays its considered reliable by most users here in Pakistan.In fact,they are a common sight on roads both in urban and rural areas of our country.
I've got 2 questions and would be really grateful if you guys could help me out.
1) What I want to know is that- is the Hilux Surf of the early to mid 90s also enjoying this reputation of hardness and durability or is it somewhat 'softer' than its brother,the Hilux double cabin pickup of the early-mid 90s?
2) Is the Hilux pickup double cabin of the early 6th gen (1998-2000) also as hard and reliable as its predecessor ,the Hilux pickup of 1988-97?
P.S- I am only talking about imported vehicles,in case local assembled vehicles of these models are also available .
