Because I usually do alone in the car, I went looking for a small, clean car. Fuel consumption was one of the main criteria for the new car. The Cuore then came quickly into view as it is considerably more efficient than its direct competitors. Some competitors were also presented with a more polluting EURO3 engine, unlike Cuore which meets the EURO4 standard.
Since the time of purchase, I have never regretted my choice. Inner Space is fine for me (1.87m). Comfort is also OK, he's surprisingly quiet even on the highway. The small wheelbase does make the car what is jumpy bumps in the road.
I chose the Osaka version because it comes without power steering. The car will send good directly and through its low weight also steering is not heavy at low speed. I was looking for a basic car, electric windows so I was not important. Another benefit of the low weight is that the car is still quite tough. You can keep up well with the 43kW motor.
The road holding is sufficient in normal use, but it is not a sports car. In fast cornering the Cuore is pretty understeer and front wheels lose grip quite quickly. But again, when driving normally you will not reach this limit. I had read in a number of test reports that the crosswind is one less point of the Cuore. It is huge with me for such a relatively high light car. Even when driving in the storm to keep the car on track. Of course you feel something, but I really do not think I will be blown off the road.

3.000 km (10 Mar 2005)
Meanwhile I drove 3000 km. Fuel consumption is against me some; Although I try to drive economically, the average consumption so far 18.2 km / l. I did not expect to get the manufacturer Daihatsu (21.6 km / l), only 20 km / l, I should have expected.
5,100 km (May 2, 2005):
In the last update I complained a little too fast. After 3000km, consumption dropped because quickly. The last four tankjes was consumption over the first 21, the last one tank even at 22! There is thus a clear entry securities, and that higher temperatures will also have an impact. The engine is now also clearly runs more smoothly at low speeds.
7,300 km (29 Jul 2005)
Average consumption over the last five tankjes (2900 km) is 22.2 km per liter. Very neat seem. Even with today's gas prices I keep laughing at the pump!
11 500 km (19 Jan 2006):
I have the car now owns just over one year. Last week, the Cuore has had its first turn, without special actually. Slightly increased consumption in the winter months, but in the last three months I drove still averaged 21.3 kilometers per liter. The Hankook bands (12") That are original equipment wear out reasonably quickly; if this continues, I do it with up to 25000km. And while I have a quiet driving.
24 000 km (20 Feb 2007)
The mileage is 24000 km. Last week the car has had its second annual service without incident. Have 2 years now run completely smoothly, there is even no light passed piece. Average consumption from Jan. 2005 to present is 21.1 km / liter, this is including the running.
51 300 km (29 Aug 2009)
By changing job some time ago I actually do less mileage on the car, commuting I mainly do on the bike. It is 15 km one way, and with the bike I am often faster.
74,500 km (3 Jan 2012)
12 091 km driven with 548.19 liters. Average consumption for 2011 so one at 22.1.
Total maintenance spent € 124.80. For this purpose, replace the timing belt tensioner, the multi belt, coolant, brake fluid, oil and koplampje line (guarantee). I perform maintenance yourself, so this is just the cost of the parts!
87 859 km (8 Jan 2013)
13 178 km driven with 594.62 liters. Average consumption for 2012 so one at 22.2.
Total € 180.80 spent on maintenance. For this purpose, the engine oil (0W-20), oil filters, gear oil (75W-80), windscreen wipers and rear portion of the outlet and is replaced preventive added a van injection cleaner.
100 240 km (18 Jan 2014):
12 988 km driven with 578.32 liters. Average consumption in 2013 so one at 22.46.
In 2013 I spend € 430.90 on maintenance. For that money I bought 4 new winter tires with new wheels (again, in the size 155/65/14), and the car inspected two times MOT (first time in early January, the second time in December). Nothing broke down in 2013! Reliability is still top!

The car was tested for the first time MOT. This is one of the first cars under the new rule, so he only needs to be tested again in 2 years. There are now for the first time replacing two tires and be the last piece of exhaust pipe turned rotten, it is replaced.
48,000 km (1 Mar 2009)
The diagnosis engine light came on. By means blink codes I have the computer read out, the problem turned out to be the heating of lambda probe. This cost at more than 200 Daihatsu amout! Started looking on the internet and now have a universal sensor for 43 euros incl. Shipping. Removing the old sensor was not easy, it was quite stuck. I could have set a big wrench, but the cramped space did not have to put up sufficient strength. After removing the bumper and grill as I could from the front in, and when it did work. New probe fitted and the car runs again like a charm.
51 300 km (29 Aug 2009)
With mileage 51300 I also replaced the front part of the exhaust, it was torn at the weld of the second damper; The complete pipe has now been so refreshed.
56 500 km (21 Apr 2010)
You hear more stories of universal oxygen sensors do not work properly, and I can now confirm that. The universal lambda probe has done any good, but consumption has increased again after a few months and is the engine light might light up again. The probe mounted I had was an unknown brand, perhaps a universal probe eg Bosch is working well, but I had no desire to continue experimenting; I still only an original probe obtained by Daihatsu for, wait for it, 292 euros. Mounting it done again itself, remove the front bumper an hour of work. I think the price Daihatsu charges or outrageous, especially for a part that apparently broken by a design fault, because a lambda probe just should not go as often piece. (Also read the forums on www.daihatsu-forum.de only once after). Some leniency with regard to the part price had been in place.
60 415 km (10 Dec 2010)
The Cuore has again a fresh MOT valid until Jan 2013. Everything was fine, no comments or suggestions!
64,600 km (1 Feb 2011)
I wanted the external olieleidinkje to replace the front of the engine. This was very corroded and I had on the German Daihatsu forum already read a few stories of cars where this pipe had rotted. The engine oil spray then appears which can lead to large result damage.
This afternoon I was in the Daihatsu dealer to get a new line. Here I was told that they had recently received a letter from the importer on the line, and that it could be replaced under warranty. It was a particular series Cuore's my type L251 and L701 also the pastor. They had immediately time to replace the pipe, so after waiting half an hour I drove away again fitted with the new leadership! I think this is still very decent for a car of six years, which has long no longer in service at the dealership! This makes my bad experience with the lambda probe yet again a little good.
Furthermore, last weekend the first light broke down since I got the car; it was the right headlight. After six years and nearly 65.000km still not bad!
70 122 km (12 Jul 2011)
I replaced the timing belt tensioner with the belt and the coolant. It was the first time I've done this with this car; there must be some kind developed to recover the timing belt (bumper, headlight and engine mount), but all in all it was not against.
71 190 km (4 Aug 2011)
Today I changed the brake fluid. Last time this happened was during the last turn at the dealer when the car was two years old. So it was high time, although I did not see the pollution of the old brake fluid. The discs and pads (never replaced) still looked fine.
I immediately changed the wheels from front to back.
85,800 km (6 Sep 2012)
Today I did some maintenance performed on the Cuore. It had been some time since the oil was changed, so once again installed a new oil filter and filled with 2 liters of fresh 0W-20 oil (level is already almost up!)
I also immediately changed the gearbox oil, Daihatsu wrote this for six years after 90.000km.
And now that we enter the autumn weather, but also mounted immediately new wipers.
This past year I have for my doing a lot of mileage, the Charade remains very reliable!
87 800 km (10 Dec 2012)
The end piece of the exhaust replaced for the second time, it was again rotted just behind the flange after 4 years. Thankfully, this piece of pipe just 34 euro ... Exhaust I have a whole must withdraw because one bolt flange vastgerot was and I have not woke up under the car. The two bolts were stuck terrible the front exhaust pipe, and were after loosening crooked. This I had also some small equipment required at the dealership, two screws and a gasket, which cost me 31 euros.
87 859 km (8 Jan 2013)
The Cuore is again gloriously passed the MOT (RDW sample). No comments or suggestions.

In my previous car was a board computer, which I surely liked and convenient. The Cuore I missed this, I have solved that for several weeks with a Scan Gauge II board computer. This is easy to connect to the EOBD port and displays all information about temperatures, pressures, fuel consumption and the like. Also fault codes them to read and reset.
55 500 km (12 Feb 2010)
I mounted instrument panel with tachometer from a Nagano-performance, looks better and I am nevertheless pleased to have a tachometer. For a bargain price scored the demolition, and I was lucky that the mileage is substantially the same as the original unit (400 km difference).
56,250 km (May 14, 2010):
Via marketplace four brand new wheels (155/65/14) bought a Peugeot 107 and mounted on the Cuore. Tire circumference is about 4% larger than the standard tire. The speedometer displays normally always something too much, with the new tires he knocks exactly (checked via GPS). The handling is also significantly improved by 14" wheels.

7.760 km driven. The Cuore is used as a second car since early 2014 and is mainly used by my wife. It shall keep the consumption does not, but the scan gauge gives a consumption of approximately 1 to 20 at.
In 2014 I spend € 140 on maintenance. There was received a new battery (after 10 years!), New wipers and oil and filter are changed. The car is also back trouble came by MOT.
As head car we have at the Honda Civic Hybrid in 2011. In terms of practical usage, the Cuore clearly more economical, although they should do the same on paper.
