    JMAN ang gandang Charade mo! Sobra! Ang ganda ng kulay! Aba, may sunroof pa!

    VHANGISSSSSSS!!!!

    Pwede ba sumali ex owner? I sold mine two months ago and it was one of the worst decisions I ever made. I used that car for two years na walang major repairs except for a snapped timing belt. Sobrang yabang ko talaga pag drive ko charade kala mo convertible ang dala. I'm seriously thinking of getting a GTi model. Damn!, I really miss her!

    Maliit man ang engine ng Charade (997cc, parang big bike) bawi naman sa power to weight ratio. Iwan nga lang sa rekta unless its a GTi turbo.

    Daihatsu = Japanese for "Not Korean"

    Keep on coming DAIHATSU CHARADE OWNERS!

    Otep, what I know is until now tied up pa rin ang Toyota and Daihatsu, I even saw a video na naglabas ng mga bagong models ang Daihatsu with the team up from Toyota, I think sa Tokyo Motor Show. Wala nang labas na bagong Charade pero nag-market na sila ng smaller cars na ibang model like Terios, YRV (w/c is kung titignan mong mabuti parang galing sa Charade) and Cuore.

    Jman, ayos yung sunroof ha! Info naman kung saan mo pinagawa? Anyway, in terms of piyesa, wala naman akong naging problem kasi so far no major parts pa akong napalitan. Meron nga pala, yung balljoint napalitan ko last year pa.

    To all KIA Owners, I have nothing against your car. I just wanted lang all DAIHATSU owners to know each other para pag may problema, iba na yung may idea ka coming from your co-owners.

    Kiaallmotor,
    yep i know about the festiva(Ford Festiva is U.S.) and mazda 121, ganda nga siguro laban ng turbo na Kia sa Gtti model ng charade... power to weight ratio na lang.
    kaya nga pocket rocket (souped up small cars) hindi stock pockets...

    actually, i think pareho ang design ng under chasis ng daihatsu sa toyota small cars... starlet and charade, echo verso and daihatsu YRV. part kasi ng Daihatsu sa Japan is owned by Toyota tama nga ba? :lol:

    Thanks! JMAN. Consider ko baka next yr na lang...

    Yung pics ng ride mo, naka-indiglo ba yung speedometer mo? Correct me if I'm wrong. If yes, saan and how much.

    Ilang years na sa iyo yan? Yr/Model?

    Thanks!

    nope d ako naka indiglo... dko kasi type sakit sa mata stock lang palit minsan bulb para linaw palagi sometimes light green sometimes orange. mag 3 years na sa 'kin 'to pero 92 model pa ito repainted na dating white. if i have the excess money and right source gusto sana pa-turbo na medyo bitin sa rekta pag simul lang ang carb... top speed i achieved was 160 kph sa batangas ko na gawa dun sa bagong hi-way. :lol: target ko patakbuhin kahit 180-190 kph .. hehe (taas pangarap no?) pero pag nagturbo ako o palit makina i have to upgrade my brakes and suspensions din kaya medyo magastos.

    Mine was a 91 model... Under body paint siya ngayon... Actually, got this from my father-in-law 3 years ago rin, nakita ko nabalandra lang sa garage nila, kaya yun kuha ko cheaper price tapos ako na nag-furnish.

    Top speed ko was around 140kph lang, sa NLEX madaling araw. Okay naman ang handling, by next yr plano ko palit shocks. Experience mo na putol clutch cable mo, ako twice. Yung una kasi di orig yung nakuha ko (moral of my story) kaya yun I was stalled in the middle of Ortigas, uphill naman. Di naman ako na-tow kasi gumamit ako GI, konting tali ayos, may temporary clutch na ko. Yun ang advantage ng cable clutch...he he :lol:

    Any major repairs? Saan ka ba nagpapagawa? Ako kasi hilig ko kalikot, pag di ko na kaya saka ko lang dinadala kung saan saan? May particular auto supply na kinukunan ng parts? Suggest ka naman oh... TY Jman! 8)

    JMAN, oo nga no ang ganda nga siguro paglabanin yung dalawa lalo na kung kasya ang.........................sa Kia Pride = 210HP stock, Tapos sa Charade ano?
    Oo nga power to weight ratio na lang, lalo na pag ang gamitin na body ng Kia Pride, e yung 2-door version tapos ang makina e yung 210HP. The Gtti Charade is only 100HP Stock
    :lol:
    JMAN, hindi (stock pockets) ang akin, (souped up) All Motor ang akin. Pero if what you believe by pocket rocket is nakaturbo, then ok=Turbo to Turbo as what i mentioned above, ok lang din pag labanin. O kaya yung all motor ko na Kia ilaban sa Turbo na Charade, ok din basta stock turbo and boost PSI at SOHC version. :lol:

    I know the Kia Pride's potential, sorry if i want to establish my point.

    vhenok,
    so far di pa nangyayari sa clutch cable ko na maputol, normal lang naman napuputulan nun basta may edad na ang kotse, i guess i have to keep an eye out for that.
    2 months ago naputol timing belt ko dahil lokal nilagay nun dati kong mekaniko.. so far okay na uli takbo nya after being overhauled. may magandang bilihan ng piyesa sa banaue ingat ka sa mga manlolokong tambay... i had to learn back then from experience.
    if your looking for parts kalimutan ko name nung shop pero bagsakan kasi yun pati mga ibang shop dun kumukuha. galing e. rodriguez pagpasok mo banaue unang kanto kaliwa ka dun yun shop bago mag chinese school.

    kiaallmotor,
    hindi ka naman dapat mag sorry if you want to point out your opinion, you're entitled to it. I admit i could also be wrong... siguro nga napaka bilis na ng auto mo, i have nothing against your car... but i wouldn't trade my charade for your kia pride no matter how fast your car is. point ko lang din yun. :wink:
