Maintenance costs for Parts and Labor

For the first 1,000 and 5,000 kilometers, you can expect to pay Php 2,400 for each mileage. No major parts are expected to be replaced. Basic parts such as a new oil filter and air filter are likely to be installed. Some say that you don’t need to replace it as early as in this stage. However, this is a preventive measure to keep your Hilux in tip-top shape.

You should prepare Php 4,300 to Php 5,500 after reaching the 10,000-km mileage. The final cost will depend on the condition of your Hilux and what parts should be replaced. If you are careful enough, then you can expect a lower price in the said range.

Once you reach the 15,000-km mileage, expect to pay around Php 3,500 to Php 7,200. It gets hefty once your Hilux reaches the 20,000-km mark as the PMS costs Php 7,500 to Php 10,400. And by the 25,000-km mileage, expect to pay Php 3,500 to Php 7,200.

So for the first year of owning a Toyota Hilux, the total estimated cost would range from Php 23,600 to Php 35,100. That is if you drive the pickup truck on a daily basis. The annual cost of maintaining your Hilux will get higher as more critical parts must be replaced.

Toyota Hilux

<p>The Toyota Hilux is a pickup with a globally known nameplate for being one of the reliable workhorse vehicles. It was 1968 when Toyota&#39;s pickup truck started building a reputation for being rugged and dependable, and it continues until today with the facelifted model launched in 2020. This popular pickup continues to evolve and slowly move upmarket after gaining luxuries. The most significant revolutionary jump of the Hilux happened in 2004 when the seventh-generation of the model was introduced. It was the first 21st-century iteration of Toyota&#39;s pickup. It is also the first generation to ride on Toyota&rsquo;s new Innovative Multi-purpose Vehicle architecture. It provided improved safety, better ride comfort, modern D-4D diesel engines, more interior space, and a more modern aerodynamic body. The current 8th generation offers a more refined and stylish design than its predecessor, but the tradition of being a tough pickup continues. It gets a much-awaited refresh in 2020 inline. Aside from improved looks, the Philippine iteration also comes with more powerful engine options. The Toyota Hilux is available in 4x4 and 4x2 variants. In the Philippines, the pickup truck is offered with diesel engines. It is available with automatic or manual transmission depending on the variant.</p>
