1992 Daihatsu Charade — Performance: There's nothing special about this one. A 1.3 L four-cylinder engine with single carburetor is enough for daily city driving, but for high speed or mountain driving may require a lot more work. I recommend the GTi model to accommodate such need. Build Quality: A typical cheap japanese car build quality. It's okay resistance for a few minor bumps, but you may careful about major crash as these kind of bump will smash the car badly. Appearance: Well, I'd say this car appearance is quite good. The streamline shape assure good aerodynamics and looks. A few tweak will turn this humble car into a better ones.

Pros: Appearance, Fuel Efficiency

Cons: Performance, Durability

Cheap & Cheerful — 990cc 3cyl non-turbo. Performance is better than it looks on paper, but still not great. Won't pull the speed limit on a flat road with the air-con running. It was a cheap car when built, so is plasticky inside, but fairly well put together. I paid $400 for this one. It is much bigger inside than it looks, quite spacious, almost a sleeper Tardis. Looks a bit odd outside with the amputated boot though. Low maintenance, very good on fuel. 50-70mpg. Quite fun to drive around town, easy in shopping centres, easy to park. quite nippy at low speeds. Very direct on the road, much like the oversize go-kart that it is.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy, parking

Cons: Power, crash safety.

The Little Charade — I loved this car, 3 cylinder engine with a hair blower sized turbocharger, 5 speed manual gearbox and an honest to god little beater! A very fun car to drive. It sound pethetic on paper but it's a little hero! RIP though because I totalled this car in a horrid accident but the little hero saved me and my friend...not much with my friend because he was hurt but he's fine today and the hero lives in our memories

Pros: Fuel economy,Performance(for a 3 cylinder!)

Cons: Ride quality,engine noise

First Car — Only for those who is low on budget and high on expectation in performance. The only reason this car still commission on road is because there are more useless car on the road right now in my country, and of course budget is an important factor. After an engine transplant and a coat of new paint, this car looks acceptable in the current society :)

Pros: Fast and light

Cons: Noisy and weak

Great Little Giant — Very Reliable and amazing little engine that produces so much power. I got 193 BHP out of 3 cylinder 993cc!!! That must be crazy, as I have just lost my gearbox! What Can I say, unbelivable little GIant GTti. The first 100 BHP per 1 litter engine!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Wont let you down and good fun to drive

Cons: NOTHING

Ok Especially If There Is An Injector Engine Under The Hood — my car is white it came with a 1600cc carb engine and a 5 speed manual gearbox it ran well, one thing the mechanical parts I've purchased so far are expensive in comparison to a corolla. Its ok and for its make it corners good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: gas consumption

Cons: parts are expensive

My Little 3 Door, 3 Cylinder, 1 Litre Sedan. By Jude

Poor old thing is well past his prime, but I can't bear to let him go yet. All my other cars (except for one) have been ancient so I'm hoping he will last until he's at least 20! I love him. Read More

Nasty Little Deathtrap By Tim

Interior is durable, but cheap. It's a tiny little car with such amazing features as an AM radio. No air-con, no power steering, no nothing. You'd think that'd mean "no worries" but you'd be wrong. ... Read More

One Little Kicking Horse By Luka

the car is great, well on my car the springs became really soft and the brakes are now a little soft, but if those 2 things are fixed it would be a little rally car :) Read More

Worst Wintercar Ever! By Michael

A wintercar that was truly horrible! The brakes sucked, the handling was worse than a freight-ship. Steering was awfully unprecise! Read More
