1994 Daihatsu Hijet 1.0 from UK and Ireland
A low cost van that does everything I want and I mean everything
Choke has an intermittent fault with the light on the dash, being fixed at service (full service £95)
I love it! Its fantastic. I have had 4 smarts, 2 minis, 1 mercedes and a big estate. Some of them cost 10 times as much as my little £1000 van, but this is the best by a long way!
I need to fit a good stereo as it did not come with one. Was owned by Hamersmith Council until 15k miles then a lady who did antiques fairs. It has double locks all round. Has a few knocks and scratches one on the roof. Was red now a sort of orange where the paint has faded.
Its very comfortable to drive no rattles, goes quick when you put your foot down. Its seems very well built, and does not rattle or wonder like my minis did. I am going to use it for my personal car/van.
I have put all my sleeping bags in the back and am going to give it a trial run for camping in tonight. I can't quite lie flat along it as I am over 6ft, but its still super comfortable. If all goes well a trip round europe is the plan.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
