Hard To Beat For The Price And Cost Of Ownership. — I've got a modified 1994 Daihatsu Charade. It has a turbo 1.0 3cyl, has front mount intercooler, bigger turbo, efi, custom plumbing and exhaust, 15" wheels, strut brace and sway bars. Doesn't sound like much but goes pretty hard for a little car. Have some lowered suspension that I need to fit and then it will be a good little pocket rocket. Best parts are the turbo rush, reliability and cost to run. Worst parts are turbo lag, lack of refinement and the fact it's a Daihatsu haha.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cheap to run, fun to drive

Cons: small, unrefined

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

Cheap & Cheerful By Mal

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 plasti... 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

Money Sucker By Henry

Easy to drive. It's small but enough space. Not very fast, but enough. My front left crashed once, and the front suspension never perfect after since. Brake squeeks and imbalance. Noises from suspensi... Read More
