• Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    I'm an individual who thinks outside the box (no pun intended),.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Divided opinions, but it's my choice not theirs.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Totally, such a pity Daihatsu have left Europe.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Maybe see about importing the Materia Turbo from Japan. This one's a hoot, so I can only imagine what the turbo will be like. Not intending to part with her for a long, long time yet.

    April 2013

    Cracking deal, amazing mileage, brilliant price.

    I needed a taller car and found this one with 5,000 miles on it, 3 years old and only £5,000.

    What was the dealer like?

    Superb, would highly recommend CEJ3000 from Doncaster. Only deals with low mileage cars.

    What's it like to drive?

    Fantastically fun to drive. Excellent handling, great ride, peppy engine, nice and quiet too.

    A doddle with those massive door mirrors and the parking sensor.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Only just bought it, but not anticipating anything as it's got 2 years left on the manufacturer's warranty and of course there's Daihatsu's bombproof reliability record.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Massive door mirrors and sliding rear seat.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Love everything about it, especially the sliding rear seat, the parking sensors and the excellent stereo.
