A great car for the more serious young four wheel driver
Front suspension sags slightly unevenly.
The Rocky is definitely no rocketship.
Its strong points are reliability, economy and off road ability.
Although a harsh sounding motor, the diesel is a gem off road with plenty of power on the beach and torque that will climb over nearly anything.
The only reason I would not buy another Daihatsu is that my next 4x4 will need to be larger, and Daihatsu do not offer anything larger than this.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
