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!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
