1998 Daihatsu Fourtrak TDX 1.8 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
The best for serious, no frills off roading
The Fourtrak Rocky is the best 4x4 we can find.
There have been no problems with it whatsoever, even after missing services.
It can easily put a Land rover Defender in its place, or see off one or two other specialized 4x4's.
It's a shame they where discontinued in 2002 as I would buy another one.
Tows like nothing else I know of, and does not give up easily when under serious pressure.
Excellent for 300000 mile guarantee, and a massive 2.8 liter engine gives it raw power under the bonnet.
It's a unique and powerful car - no other like it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I disagree, I have had my fourtrack for under a year. Admittedly it was second hand, but at 40,000, I expected a workhorse that would last. It has depreciated by over £4000 in the last twelve months. To top it all, the clutch was slipping at 40,000 miles - £600
The Gear box needed a rebuild at 45,000. - £1400.
MMMM - wish I'd never set eyes on it, any of you fans out there want to buy it? Very much for sale.
Next time I'll buy a Mitsubishi, maybe it will manage a reasonable mileage?

Fourtrak 2.8 is the best,I've had just about every other 4-4.

Just bought a T reg Foutrak having ditched the Mitsubishi L200 - a nightmare of a vehicle- horrendous road handling. A boat. A pig of a truck. Welcome lovely Fourtrak xxx.

I recently bought a four trak, T reg, at first I was a little put off by its 'box like' outline, but when you look inside, they are spacious, neat, modern, perfect for children as mine is a 7 seater. Now I love my four trak, it is the best car I have ever owned... drive like a dream, at last driving is a pleasure once again... And for all of you who say they go wrong, I cannot support this either, as I have known the owner from new and there has never been any problems with it, so you must be cursed! :S.

I think you were had. It's very unlikely you needed a gearbox rebuild. A very common problem with these is gearbox problems. Almost always sorted by tightening 1 bolt, which works loose.
