2001 Daihatsu Terios 1.3 from Costa Rica
No-headaches and a practical little SUV
The engine began to lose power at 95,000 kilometers until I figured out it needed a clean-up of its injectors. Outside from that, this has been a no-headaches car.
Whether you think of it as an oversized station wagon or an undersized SUV, once you've used it you cannot deny how practical this vehicle is.
Although the ride is not as comfortable as riders of larger SUVs may be used to, this light AWD car will definitely take where you command it to go with good fuel efficiency and no major concerns.
It has enough room for my small family and a full load of groceries or two couples on a beach trip with full load of coolers and bags. You probably won´t believe it, but I've even fit a small 50cc motorcycle on the back (with the back seats folded).
I've gotten more than I paid for and I consider myself a proud Terios owner...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
