Summary:

Gas saver in the city, uncomfortable though!

Faults:

Very unstable at > 80kmh.

Noise from the engine & outside.

General Comments:

The Daihatsu Xenia 1.0 only has a 1000cc engine; a real gas saver, but performance is very poor on the highway.

It's good for traffic in Jakarta Indonesia, because of its gas saver nature (stop n go traffic), but once you drive on the highway, it feels very unstable and dangerous. Seems Daihatsu only care for its cheap price, and not maintaining its safety.

You can hear noise from the engine, very loud, and also traffic from the outside.

Overall, it's good only in the city, not the highway. Very good gas saver, probably 1:15km, but performance and comfort is very low!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

This car is made for those who seek for an affordable vehicle with its function of carrying 7 passengers in one small car. I'd say this is a great value for money car. In a car at this price, you don't expect performance or stability. Besides, this is a 7 seater subcompact MPV, what do you expect from its "stability?".
