1997 Daihatsu Terios DX 1.3L
Completely reliable plus practical for city use (economical) and exploring the Australian Outback
A rattle developed inside the muffler (silencer) during the warranty period. Replaced without question by supplier.
An excellent vehicle. I travelled 12,000kms last year in a period of seven weeks touring all over Western Australia through Kakadu and Darwin in the Northern Territories. We traversed some extremely rough, testing tracks including into the Bungle Bungles in the Kimberley region, a 50kms drive which takes on average about 3hrs and requires the crossing of about 8 water courses. We travelled the Gibb River Road from Derby to Kununurra in the far north of Western Australia and upto the King Edward River. Forded many water-ways, some upto half a metre deep without any problems whatsoever. An amazing 4WD with a price tag some AU$5,000 below other 4WD vehicles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
