Toyota Mark X Zio

customer feedback

2004 Nissan Cima 450XV

Its been a while since receiving the car from compliance and would like to share a quick review of my import experience of my Nissan Cima.

Ben, thank you for making this experience an easy going and enjoyable process for me. I have always wanted to import a car from Japan, but have been hesitant when i thought of all the possibilities that could go wrong when importing. But your processes and knowledge on importing cars put my mind at ease. It was great that any questions i had were answered promptly and accurately.

2 months on from the car landing in SA and i'm still loving it. I have had no issues or bad surprises and its simply an amazing, good condition machine.

I am more than happy to recommend your service to anyone i know that's interested in importing a car.

The J-Spec Mileage Promise

Speedo tampering is rife in the Australian market to the point where more imports than not sold by Australian dealers have had their mileage wound back. See how importing yourself easily avoids this pitfall.

Toyota Mark X Zio (GGA10 series)

The Mark X Zio was made from 2007 to 2013 and is an interesting hybrid of a sedan, station wagon and mini van. Importable models have 6 or seats with large amounts of storage space inside possible, and comes with good performance and luxury features. The name is actually pronounced "Geo" as there is no way to say "Zio" in Japanese, though if that takes off or not in Australia is another story.

The Mark X Zio has a 206kW 3.5L dual VVT-i engine, this is the 2GR-FE and is shared with the Toyota Camry, Avalon, Tarago, Estima, Alphard, Vellfire and a few Lexus variants as well, so parts availability is no problem. This is mounted to a 6 speed tiptronic transmission.

While there is a 7 seater available for lower spec versions, importable models are the luxury models with 6 seats with 2 front seats, 2 middle seats, and 2 seats for the third row. The rear seats are thin fold down seats, wiht the second row of seats a pair of "captain's chair" style seats with a centre arm rest and console.

Safety features include S-VSC (Steering-asstisted Vehicle Stability Control) which combines cutting engine power, applying brakes and adjusting steering to stabilize a car that's skidding or out of control, front airbags, side airbags, various braking assists, and the car also uses radar to detect if a crash is about to occur and pre activiates brakes and seatbelts in anticipation.

As well as the usual slew of luxury features a modern, high end car such as this has, there is also radar cruise control (the car will maintain the distance to the car in front), smart key access with push button start, and parking assist which uses sensors to detect the surroundings during parallel parking, and controls the steering to guide you.

Standard and optional features include:

ABS brakes Front and side airbags
Brake Assist Electronic Braking Distribution
Traction control Stability control
Anti theft system Dual zone climate control
Leather seats Multiple parking cameras
Parking sensors Parking assist
Pre crash mitigation Power folding mirrors
Smart key access with push button start Radar cruise control
Power seats Heated seats
Adaptive Front Lightings Sytem (AFS) Steering wheel controls
Cruise control Xenon headlights
