What's the used Daihatsu Fourtrak 4x4 like?

Scan through original road tests of the Fourtrak and one phrase appears more than any other: Ôfarmers' favourite'. With good reason.

In spirit at least, the Fourtrak is closest to cars like the Land Rover Defender and Jeep Wrangler, a dedicated and extremely capable off-road workhorse. If you need a car that can head off into the wilds, this should be near the top of your shopping list. If, on the other hand, you're looking for a dash of 4x4 style, but don't need any real off-road ability, the Foutrak will strike you as positively agricultural - in all the wrong ways. None of the models are well equipped - some are particularly spartan - and they all suffer from a jarring ride, sloppy steering and a general lack of comfort and refinement. Performance, too, is very limited, as is practicality; it's best to treat it as a two-seater.
