Daihatsu Terios

Hi Guys,

i am thinking of buying a Daihatsu Terios. will somebody help me with their experience on this model ? What is the fuel consumption in the city and remote areas? Brand new price is 5.3 mn and 3.5 years old ones with about 40000 km driven are sold in the market around 3.7 mn. I feel this model is depreciating fast as 1.6 mn diffrence is too much between brand new and 3.5 yrs used ones, according to my understanding. am i correct ? will i be faced with this kind of sharp depreciation with this model even if they are Japanese?. Or is this model has a good resale value as claimed by the agent ? thanks

I think it's appearance and the technical specifications are pretty much same as Toyota Rush.One of my friend is using a Rush and it does around 9 km/L in the city and around 12 km/L in outstation.I think Terios also will somewhere around that figure.according to him it has a slow acceleration when overtaking and a noisy engine when compared to other compact SUVs in similar category.and the cabin space is also lesser.more an all have to be very careful when making turns as there will be a high centre of gravity (ie: since it's a tall object there will be a high chance of fall over) :unsure: .I think that the Terios carries same design and specifications as Rush. :unsure:

Rush is rebadged Terios. It's the same vehicle but with a Toyota badge and price tag.

I know a couple of guys who brought down Terios with the permits they got. They are happy with it. Depreciation for brand new vehicles is common for all vehicles (with a few exceptions), not just Terios. More expensive the vehicle is, higher the depreciation, especially if its new to the market. However, prices stabilize after some time and move with the market.

All I saw there was "please please pretty please don't buy any recon vehicles from Japan cos they are no no no no good in Sri Lanka... please please buy from us... Thank you".

do you mean to say that they are not good or cheating people on this vehicle?

I'm not saying they are misguiding or cheating but trying to put down recon vehicles so that they can sell their own product. It's just a bad marketing tactic. In this desperate effort, they even claim that JDM vehicles are less safer than vehicles that are imported to Sri Lanka!

Well that is what any self respecting marketer would do :)

Having said that they do have a point. When you look at Japanese vehicles exported to Europe (where EuroNCAP is standard) you kind of see what they are talking about. Air bags became standard on cars here long before Japan (cars as old as 1993 have air bags here). And the export versions do come equipped with special modifications for the country or region it is sold in. You notice this contrast when you purchase the Indian built Alto and compare it to the Japanese made Alto of the same generation. You get bigger radiators, bigger condensers, stronger springs, shocks, and rubber bushes etc are specifically made to suite the climate and so is the upholstery. So lets not dismiss as pure marketing speak.

On most vehicles, this has not had much of an impact, but on some vehicles the issue is more obvious. I wonder if people remember how the Isuzu Fargo used to rust like no tomorrow, but the equivalent WFR didn't !

Hi all,

I v been driving a terios for last 3 years. It is a good car, but not a great one. Mine is a 1.5l Manual.

It does around 10 km/l in city with my careful driving but does an amazing 14 km/l outstation too.

As one said the drive is rough and the noise is way too much for a petrol. But you get the feeling of you are on solid grounds as the all time 4 wheel drive is amazing in stability. Good ground clearance, so do not mind getting dirty at all.

The best thing is the build quality. Very good for a Japanese and still I feel I'm driving the new car in spite my rough handling.

I read the Diahutsu drome article and it's a shame that the extent the SL marketing goes to sell their one over the others.

Contact me for more info.

Cheers

Hi,

Yeah I have a pretty good idea, cus one of my very good friend is driving one with auto. It does very poor according to him, around 7 km/l. Sounds terrible to me.

But as I told you, there is an art driving even an auto vehicle. So you must be able to get the same figures at least theoretically.

Handling is always superb in corners in high speeds, way better than a similar range saloon. Recently I drew to Badulla and it was a great drive.

Cheers
