Owner’s Thoughts:

This is probably the GREATEST car I have ever owned.

The off-road capabilities of this car are phenomenal. Living close to the Brindabella Ranges and places like Flea Creek, McIntyres Hut and Lowells Flat, the ZR has shown that it has no problems handling these mountain tracks.

It’s level of comfort combined with technology are just exquisite. Standard features include heated leather seats, SatNav, a fantastic sound system (which is also a DVD player), sunroof and a plethora of other features. It also has radar cruise control and a pre-collision warning system that are outstanding.

The ride, whilst a bit floaty with factory suspension, has now been rectified with a two inch lift consisting of King Springs and Bilstein B6 shocks. The improvement has turned the ZR into an absolute dream to drive on and off road.

Rear drifta draw system, icom450 Comms, projecta IDC25 with solar input, ARB bar with winch and 9inch LED spotties just compliment this beast.

The are very few flaws with the ZR. The two main flaws are single tank of 87 litres and the entry into the rear is quite tight but I have small children, so this wasn’t an issue for me. I intend on keeping this vehicle for the next 10 years.

Outstanding build quality from Toyota, why would you waste money on any other brand?
