Mr & Mrs Harding With Daihatsu Dealer Roger Chapman

Although spring is just around the corner, Daihatsu Dealer, Roger Chapman from Express Garage, Herne Bay, can't wait for more snow!

During the February snow storms, Roger was cleaning the snow from his Daihatsu Materia when curious passer by, Alan Harding from nearby Herne Bay, politely waited until he could see which model lay underneath the distinctive shaped snow. Once it was revealed it was the funky mini-MPV Daihatsu Materia, he immediately ordered one!

In fact, the boxy yet wide and squat design theme with flared wheelarches and minimum overhangs has not only created a cult-following in Japan but also created one in his own home, because when his wife, Coralie, saw the car, she wanted one too!

Mr Harding said: "We weren't even looking for a new car, never mind two! But we are very happy with our perfect package - reliability, friendly and excellent service from Express Garage, great build quality, five-year warranty and a great looking car."

Daihatsu Materia's specification is exceptionally high. Prices start at £10,770 for the manual and £11,550 for the automatic, with a five-year warranty available on all models.
