I am purchasing a Toyota Hiace 2.8 Diesel ( non turbo) auto from Japan and wondering if anyone can comment on the reliability, performance of the 3L engine on this Hiace. I have seen some local Hiace Communter are eqipped with this engine but not sure how good they are. I know this non-Turbo engine can be sluggish to drive but I am keen to know how bad it can be.

The 3L engine has 91 ps (66.93 kw) / 4000 rpm , Max.torque(Net), N*m(kg*m)/rpm 19.2 kg*m (188.29 N*m) / 2400 rpm. From the number above it is NOT too bad when compared with Mitsubishi Delica 2.5 TD.

Any comments are welcomed , especially from the Hiace owners

just make sure the timing belt has been done.
just replaced a motor in a hiace because of the timing belt snapping.
they are not a cheap motor to replace over $4000.

Hold me back.............I think the 3 day old custard skin is in danger of getting pulled off by the power and torque...............
