Summary:

Reliability personified!

Faults:

I have 2 of these 4x4 vehicles; the Feroza in Spain is probably one of the best! Purchased just 2 years ago, it has only now clocked-up 26,000 kilometers!!!

The one in the UK (my 2nd Sportrak), purchased in June this year, has over 100,000 miles and goes equally as well!

I am getting on (a bit), but I/we do not find these cars uncomfortable as long as you are not too heavy-handed with them.

The 1.6 engine provides adequate performance & economy, as well as considerable reliability.

It is a great pity that Toyota (Daihatsu's major shareholder) has put a stop to UK & EU importing any other Daihatsu.

Toyota should recognize that without Daihatsu bringing the FIRST Japanese motor here, "things" may be different even for them!!!

General Comments:

Great 4x4.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
