1993 Daihatsu Charade LX 1.3 petrol from UK and Ireland
Driver's side seatbelt fell off multiple times.
Rear left brake drum failure.
Loss of 3rd gear.
Dull to look at. Dull to sit in. Not very comfortable. This car isn't good at many things, it's terrible in fact. But it's good on fuel so it has that going for it. The reason it's so good on fuel is because it accelerates slower than anything on earth. When going past 60mph, the car would shake violently and make a loud rattling sound. The steering was very inaccurate and suffered from heavy understeer. Wouldn't recommend you buy it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The Charade is an excellent Japanese car. Yours has been abused and not looked after properly, and at 22 years old has had enough, so it is not really fair to slate it.
