Summary:

Versatile and addictive

Faults:

Nothing, as it is like a new car.

General Comments:

Reliable, versatile, and built on a model that has been around for 12 years (i.e. body shape and motor).

The later models have more KW under the bonnet, and better electrics and gear boxes, but the parts are so easy to get, and cheap as well.

www.delicashop.com for parts is really good as well, and www.delicaclub.com is a world class online resource.

Hi. I'm interested in buying a Space Gear. Hope I can ask you some questions. What is the use of diesel for 100k's, and has it enough clearance to go off road? Do you have experience with the car driving off road?

Thanks. Bo.
