Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Daihatsu Charade hatchback?

Being a relatively small manufacturer, Daihatsu is rarely included in reliability surveys or the JD Power Customer Satisfaction Survey. However, Daihatsu has made some incredibly reliable cars in the past, and that doesn't just apply to the big cars like the Fourtrak off-roader.

The Cuore was a little car with a big reputation for reliability, and the Charade promises to be even better. According to Warranty Direct, few complaints have so far been received. Because of its simplicity and inherent toughness, little should go wrong.
