Compact car specialist, Daihatsu, plans to breathe new life into some of its most popular older models with parts price reductions aimed at keeping them on the road.
Savings of up to 33.2 per cent can be made, lowering repair costs and effectively extending the operating period of ‘workhorse’ models such as the Fourtrak 4x4 – still a firm farmer’s favourite.
Daihatsus covered include the Fourtrak, Sportrak, Grand Move, Applause and older Charade – all of which are proving extremely durable among the older vehicle car parc.
Price cut examples include a Fourtrak SWB front exhaust pipe which now costs £76.88 instead of £115.17 (down 33.2 per cent), Charade tailpipe assembly for £69.30 rather than £93.23 (down 25.7 per cent) and shock-absorber for a Sportrak costing £109.92 instead of £146.55 (down 25 per cent). All prices exclude VAT and fitting.
Other parts affected by the initiative include radiators, water pumps, clutch covers and brake discs and pads.
Furthermore, all genuine approved Daihatsu parts carry a no-quibble 60,000 mile/3 year guarantee and are available from around 110 Daihatsu dealers.Published 7 August 2004
