Its The "what Is That?" Car. — Dislike the inability to exchange motors with anything but another Daihatsu. Parts can be hard to come by if you don't have a support network. Luckily there are various clubs and forums where folks can buy or exchange parts and information.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car for a teen driver as it is underpowered, 4 seater and four wheel drive.  Great for running around the island.  Used as a pizza delivery vehicle in the snow down unpaved roads where other drivers couldn't get.  Makes easy work of it. Tight turning radius due to the short wheelbase.

Cons: Underpowered yet when revved to 4000 RPMs you can feel the power start coming in.

Overall:

Onlyb Uy It If U A Midget, Drunk Or From Congo — performance was very average, braking was too jerky, handling was stiff & uncomfy, but it rarely broke down &was very tough & robust for offroading trips. its interior was very cramped for any one 5 ft 10 or more, and was very uncomfy for any journey longer than 40kms, exterior design wasnt bad but my sport rims helped a bit.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its very economical with fuel, easy to park, rarely breaks down, cheap to maintain,

Cons: it is cramped so any 6 footer cant seat in it, its uncormfortable,

Solid feel when driving, Bigger engine than the Suzuki, more stable in cornering due to the independent suspension and the front sway bar. Wider front track.

Great Little Rig For Those Who Like Driving 'different' Cars. By Tomme

I got this truck from a close friend and I have to say that I am very impressed with the quality of it. It sat for 5 years out in the weather, I got it, replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter and it ... Read More

1991 F75 By Robert

This in a good starter SUV, easy to maintain and frugal on fuel. Also it has enough room for family of four in it. It's a little bit rough and spartan, but still ok for daily use. Read More
