1992 Daihatsu Rocky Review
Great Little Rig For Those Who Like Driving 'different' Cars. — 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 fired right up! and runs like a champ. The removable hardtop is also very watertight, even when unbolted It doesn't leak when a pressure washer is sprayed at the mating surfaces. The truck is pretty peppy and does pretty good in off road situations.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Not everyone has one of these trucks, (there were only about 4000 imported to the US from 1990-92)
Cons: Parts availability can be a pain but luckily Diahatsus are still sold worldwide so most everything can be ordered online.
