Which used Daihatsu Fourtrak 4x4 should I buy?
Choosing an engine is easy: every Fourtrak comes with a 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine, and, very good it is, too. True, it's not the quickest, but its strong, low-down pull and excellent flexibility are ideally suited to towing and off-roading. There's also no choice of gearbox - it's manual or nothing.
What's more, from mid-2001 to the end of the car's life, there was just one model available, the 2.8 TDX. All you might want to do is track down a model with the optional air-con fitted. Before that there was also an SE version. You should avoid the entry-level TDL version, as it is simply too basic, with no central locking, electric windows or even a stereo.
