    Yep, not bad vehicles. I own the lwb 4x4 that my wife adores. Could use a few extra hp, but she does 120km/h easily, 5 people and a trailer. Engine just sounds noisy. Just under 15000k's on the clock so no troubles yet. The dealer that I bough the vehicle a idiots, but the service centre (in Stikland/Cape Town) are fantastic. I mainly use here to tow my quad trailer, so bad gravel roads and sand are no problem. Haven't been bundu bashing yet, so cant. I am buying a GWM Hover Dci 4x4 next year for R265 000 for myself as the wife uses the Terios. You just loses a lot of retail value on the Terios. Its a year old and no one are willing to give me more that R150 000. The wife at least are happy as we are keeping it.

    Default Offroad

    Hi,

    The Terios also comes in a special offroad version. Quite a bit more power, ground clearance and a whole buch of extras that are realy good value compared to the standard 4x4.

    Cheers

    I own a 2003 Terios I. The most surprising little car when it gets off the beaten track. It's got reasonable ground clearance, and excellent sand driving capabilities for a softroader. I've even attempted limited inclines with loose rocks, and it performed reasonable considering it's a "softie"

    What's it like during day to day driving and on the open road? I've read that it can be quite bouncy and uncomfortable.

    What's your average fuel consumption in town?

    Smile Terios eienaar

    Aan die Terios eienaars,ek ry self 'n 2000 Terios met omtrent 245000kms op sy klok en
    stil going strong.Omrede hy so klein is sien ek kans om enige plek met hom te ry en bygesÍ
    sien ons klein outjies kans vir die groot 4x4's

    My Swambo het nou ook haar hart gesit op 'n Terios AWD so die huiswerk moet nou gedoen word vir ons 2de 4x4. Hy is egter die kar wat die beter brandstofverbruik moet gee want hy gaan daagliks die verste ry, omtrent 40km.

    Dit klink darem of daar positiewe bydraes deur die hul eienaars is.

    Ek is geinteresseerd in 'n 2006 model, 94000km 1300 vir R 109 000.00 Die prys klink egter 'n rapsie hoog vir my. Ek het 'n 2002 en 2003 modelle opgespoor met minder kilos vir ongeveer R 75 000.00

    Klink hierdie pryse omtrent reg?

    Blykbaar moet hulle omtrent 13 km/liter gee?

    Default Amazing

    I own a 98 Terios.
    Struggled a bit to keep up at the beginning but that was taken care of with a few mods.
    The main problem with them is to get traction over serios axle twisters with one front and one rear wheel losing grip due to no rear diff locks.
    Can be fixed with about R9,000 and a decent set of tyres.

    Nico, Ja die prys klink omtrent reg vir daardie jaarmodel.Myne gee my so ongeveer 14km/liter wat nie sleg is nie.Sal goed wees om van die ander Terios
    eienaars te hoor wat nou al lank reeds hul voertuie gebruik.

    Default What mods did you do for the R9000?

    You can get a LSD or a rear diff-lock for between R6,500 and R9,000 fitted, but I must clarrify that I'm only fitting that the end of June. I fitted M/T 215/75/15 at the beginning of this month and it's amazing what they can do.
    I,m waiting for Scooby doo to get back to me in regards to wether it is worth adding such an exspensive mod, seeing as his is fitted with a LSD.

    Any pictures of your modified Terios's??

    Can you replace the 1.3 engine in the first gen with a Toyota 1.6??

    Assume that you have a one-on-one visit with your Creator quarterly. Now live accordingly.

    We replaced Swambo's Megane (excellent car!!) with a 2010 Terios 4x4 for the simple reason that we needed an alternative to the Terracan for weekend driving on back (dirt) roads and the not so serious off the beaten track driving. Swambo also drives a company car so I have the luxury of using the Terios for my every driving where it averages 7.5 - 8.5 L / 100km. We replace the standard 215 / 65 tyres with 235 / 60 's and I mjust admit that the ride is very smooth. If people complaines about bumpiness it is because of over inflated tyres. The off road ability is also very good for this type of vehicle. It is fitted with a solid rear axle which gives good articulation and with the centre diff lock it can surprise you off road. That is however not our main application for this vehicle - the Terracan will be used for the real off road expeditions. The Terios has the least warranty claims of any vehicle and yes it is in fact a Toyota - it is just marketed here as a Daihatsu !!

    Have you looked at a Jimny?
    If you're used to the off-road ability of a Landy, the Terios is going to frustrate you.
