General impressions:

I bought Space Gear in August Release year stated in the was 1996 but I soon found out it was April 1994. As soon as the car was I noticed the leakage in the pump. the bearing started screeching. we were changing the pump, came out something resembling solution, rather than

The blades were all corroded by environment. It surprised me that the did not overheat even on high It proved many times that overheating 4М40 is to impossible.

The result of such of the cooling system was the following: though I changed the antifreeze times, after two years of the front heat radiator got clogged, gave up heating and leaking. In the upshot, I had to change the (which was an absolute hassle), as as the antifreeze again.

When the car reached me, the total according to odometer, was 123,000 km. I assumed that the real was between 223,000 and 280,000.

To item 2. Efficient passability. The car easily with deep, snow. Of course it is also a of tires: Bridgestone Winter tires are very soft; also succeed on icy roads.

I this car is intended for winter Apart from good it feels confident on icy ground and great visibility thanks to the position of the driver. It starts even when there is a frost.

And driving in winter is better fun, I think! I at ease even when I’m winter clothes inside. And forget that winter 8 months where I live…

I enjoy how the automatic transmission It switches slowly and intelligently.


The oil filter is placed in a wise manner: from the upright. This means it is freely accessible and always filled with oil. My is quite big, about 1.5 and it has a small plug.

1. The car tends to heel to the side. I twice seen Delicas on their sides. I also noticed that the car dives at midcorner braking. And if you don’t the heel is not that big. reduce the speed in advance, or do not brake at all and turn at the same – the car will sure forgive

I advise Delica-owners to experiment just to try.

To sum it all up:

Despite the car seemed … when I had just it, it happened to prove really I have used it every day for 3 now (except for holidays and vacations). All criticism about Delica probably has to do with the wear cars have got in Japan. why you should be very attentive and when purchasing a used
