Hino Trucks


Seasoned Expediter
I posted an inquiry on Truck Talk and I'd like to thank Lawrence for the article. I'd really like to hear from someone that is driving a 2007 or 2008 Hino to find out how they like it, how it performs, mpg, etc. Any info would be apreciated---Pros and Cons.

Use the search function and type in Hino. Should bring you back some information as the truck has been posted about numerous times.

I did a search before I posted and there were only 3, all of which gave NO information. There was another inquiry from a husband/wife team that didn't get any info either. Maybe no one is driving a Hino. I thought there must be a few expediters on the road with one. Anyway I'll wait to see if I get any responses.

We were parked next to a Hino truck and the driver was talking to us.
He said they don't pull up hills very good. That's all I have heard.

They get either 7mpg or 10mpg depending on who you talk to, at least based on the people I've talked to. They are underpowered by most people's standards. They have a good powertrain warranty but I'm afraid the engine will need it due to the strain on it's underpowered system.
