we will have to retire our 23 year old HiLux and were looking at the second hand car market for a replacement, costing between 10000 and 15000 $AU.

The Ford Courier 4x4 diesel might be at least price wise a good replacement for the Hilux.

What is your experience regarding reliability, availability of spare parts, life span and travelling with it in the desert (Canning, Simpson).

Just a thought, shop sharp and you will get a present-gen Hilux 4WD for $15K. It will be petrol and 200Kkm but plenty of life remaining...

We had some at work and had a good run out of them. Only problem was a head on one, but this is a common problem with motors that have ally heads and iron blocks due to diff expansion rates. The trick is to find one thats been looked after.

I've had two of its cousins, being a B2600 4x4 petrol on gas and did 320000 kl before up grading to diesel Bravo 4x4 which had done 380000kl before trading. If you get one with good service history they can go the distance.
