    Daihatsu Terios...........

    Has anybody got one ?? Had one ?? Good ?? Bad??

    I was thinking of getting one for my lad who's just got his learners licence, I purchased a Subaru Brumby for him but he's a bit too big for it I noticed that there seems to be more legroom in these and they seem to go in the mud too

    We were at L/Cruiser Park a quite a few years ago & I was quite impressed where a bloke took his. His only comment was about side slope stability, being so narrow!

    A lady friend of mine had one, if hers was anything to go by stay well away from them, if the price is cheap expect problems, a TDI D1 would be a reasonable choice IMHO

    My wife had 1 for several years, she loved it.
    They are quite sporty to drive, go pretty well for a 1.3, & you can fit a lot in them.
    Problems, uncomfortable on a long drive, the dash is very close & I bashed my fingers thinking I had further to reach, not much else, very reliable.
    We gave it to our daughter & she also loved it till her boyfriend rolled it, they are very skinny & top heavy.
    Fun car though.

    My Dad bought me a car when I was 18 without my consultation - was a Morris 1300 auto when I had Mazda R100 in mind - I offloaded the heap of crap a few months later and Daddy could not understand.

    I am with Loanrangie on this one - if you bought me a Terios you would not be my favourite Dad.

    Discuss with son first and then buy what is likely to be appreciated.

    It has to be a cheap reliable run around and economical too

    I think if I bought a Disco for the same money it would need a rebuild

    I run a Suzuki Carry Van for work and it's so reliable it's hard to believe I've covered 70,000k's in it (flat out everywhere) and it's only been in the garage for a blocked radiator and the odd oil change. It hardly drinks fuel either.
