1999 Daihatsu Terios SX 1.3 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Fantastic value! Go anywhere with confidence
It needed a new carpet despite genuine floor mats, This was replaced under warranty at almost 2 years old.
The car has a very high quality feel to it apart from engine cooling fan noise and a body buzz at speed. Don't expect to cruise more than 100ks and hour, TOPS.
The air con is not nearly as good as my Charade was.
Its undergeared for better off road performance and that spoils it on long runs, but makes it much more agile off road than you would belive it's easy to climb very steep loose surface that you struggle to walk up/down.
Only get 400/420ks to a tankful of petrol.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
