Daihatsu Reviews

Daihatsu earned a reputation for ruggedness and reliability in the 1960s with its light trucks, and built on its good name with a range of small passenger cars and light four-wheel drives such as the Charade hatch and Rocky 4WD over the next few decades. Toyota gained control of the company in 1988, and in 2000 the Japanese company's Australian operation was absorbed by Toyota, and sales ceased here in 2005.
