I am back working in the rural areas on Dirt roads. Which my Sirion Gtvi really does not like.
I thought about a Terios.
Upon reading a few reviews they dont really get a good rap.
gives a two star rating.
Gives it a one star rating
What’s the used Daihatsu Terios 4x4 like?
In theory, the Terios sounds sensible: real off-road style in a city-friendly package. And, while that much is true, it falls down in many important areas.
For a start, its size is a problem - the cabin is horribly narrow, and two people next to each other can’t help but rub shoulders. To make matters worse, the boot is tiny. So, if you want to carry anything of any size, you need to fold down one of the rear seats, making the car a three-seater.
If you thought that was bad, things get even worse when you start driving. Performance is pedestrian; the ride is dreadfully choppy on anything other than a perfectly smooth road and the combined assault of road, wind and tyre noise makes long-distance, high-speed trips hard to bear. A small consolation is a tight turning circle and some ability off-road.
Can anyone confirm the above to be true? Or is this a land cruiser owner biased report?
Could the suspension be modified to make it better. Or should I stay well away?
Its hard to believe that the makers of the Sirion could make someting that rates so low
