Horrible Car, And I Would Recommend Staying Away From Charades... — I rented a Daihatsu Charade (it IS a charade) in Grand Cayman, and as we were driving along, we heard a creak and rattle, so we got out, and the EXHAUST FELL OFF! Performance: poor acceleration, bad brakes, poor handling. Build Quality: Very squeaky/rattly. Appearance: Very ugly car, too low to ground, wheels the size of dinner plates, and too small and cramped. Fun Factor: This car is as fun to drive as getting stuck in the wilderness surrounded by wolves.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Average AC, good mileage.

Cons: Bad performance, not fun to drive, THE EXHAUST SYSTEM FELL OFF COMPLETELY, ugly, too low to the ground, 4 imperial gallon gas tank, very rattly and squeaky, also low tech, no central locking, hand powered windows, and no CD player (only cassette).

'98 Daihatsu Charade — This 1998 Daihatsu Charade has most probably earned itself the nickname of a smiley face. With this tag, it is hard to associate itself with any lavish comments. However, as my first ever vehicle, it had served me well. I had bought it with a mileage of approx 38000km and took it for a spin for about 3 years. Throughout this time, it had traveled long distances (500km per trip) and short distances (lazy to walk to my neighbours) ... and guess what, no problems whatsoever. This is definitely a no nonsense first car that you would want as a first car. It is relatively new compared to others of its price/year, e.g. hyundai excel, suzuki swift etc. Furthermore with the very fact that its 1.5l engine can do a 500-600km range in 1 tank of unleaded, it is definitely worth a shout if you are shopping with a budget. Do note, however, that not every charade a fitted with Air Con. So do get one with Air Con, or be ready to be toasted during the summers!

Pros: Niffty for its range, easy on your wallet

Cons: Aircon is optional, getting old

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
