I have a hilux invincible, double cab with truckman top, 61 plate. I have two kids, eldest is 7yrs. I use mine for everything from working on the shoot to the school run.
Yes its a bit noisy, but only from the outside. Don't really notice it inside. Its great on the motorway and comfortably cruises at 70mph, with lots more power in reserve! We quite often go on holiday in it and the back swallows the luggage (all girls!!!) including their bikes etc. Used to swallow, cot, pram, pushchairs etc.
Excellent off road and in the snow (with All terrain tyres). Last time it snowed the girls loved going out and rescuing all their school friends parents!
The only downside that i have found is its length. Its the same size as a vivaro van. You need a big parking space. I have a reversing camera which is invaluable. In some multi storey carparks it can be a bit tight manoeuvring.
I will definitely be getting another pickup when the time comes to replace mine.
