1992 Daihatsu Mira J 0.7L
Reliable and cheap
Timing belt replaced at 125,000km.
New Muffler at 144,000km.
Rear vision mirror fell out of the roof once, straight forward fix.
Red paint faded, but it had no garaging nor a carport.
This was a very reliable car right up until it was written off (it got sandwiched between two other cars in an accident).
The clutch would have required an adjustment if it was still around, it would have cost approx AU$750 as the entire engine would have to be removed to get to the clutch.
The car didn't hold up well in the accident and it was stationary, if travelling at speed I'd hate to think what would have happened.
It was VERY cheap on fuel and could park anywhere, I miss my Mira!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
