Daihatsu Terrios review
Added: 11th of October 2016
I am on my second Diahatsu Terios because I think it is a great small car for a senior citizen to drive locally. I am tall (5ft 8ins) and even with my hair up I still have head room. I have a bad back and is the right height for me to slide into the car without discomfort. I live on a hill so in icy conditions it is great to know that I can flip a switch and it goes into 4 wheel drive so that I can to and from my house without issue. It is reasonably economical and very reliable. The manual is easy to follow so I can maintain items under the bottom - oil, brake fluid, windscreen washer, coolant etc. I mainly use it for going to/from work, shopping, taking the grandchildren out and driving locally. I take it on long journeys (2-3hrs) about 4 times per year, fully laden with son/grandchildren and baggage and it has not let me down, although the comfort for all passengers is reduced. The only issue I have with it, is the drivers electric window mechanism is not very sturdy and I have had to replace the unit twice in the past - It would also be nice to have electric heated seats.
