Hi all looking at getting a 2011 diesel 12 seater hiace commuter in an auto.

Has anyone got one or had one.

Looking for any advice on them as can't find many reviews.

I have a slightly older Petrol Hiace commuter, we have had it for about 4-5 years now, do A LOT of KMs in it and the only time we have ever had to use our RAA membership was because the battery died which needed replacing and because one of the kids locked the keys in the car.

 

The only other issue is the tendency for DH to either clip something while reversing or because it takes up so much space in the car park, people drive into the back of it while parking. We've had to have the back door replaced 3 times at 4k a go, it has another dint in it currently and I've given up.

 

It is also a bit more difficult to find an insurance company that will insure Commuters and that was even before the above mentioned back door issues.

 

We do a lot of long intra and interstate trips in ours and it is much more comfortable for the kids as they have so much more room.

Hi all we ended up purchasing the 2011 turbo diesel

And we love it great on fuel and heaps of room.

Getting in and out of the front takes some getting used to.
