    Actually, it looks like they are a DaimlerChrysler product.

    Hey, if it's cheap and gets good fuel economy and if parts are easy to obtain. Why not buy one? We have a guy in town who drives a dihautsu (a division of toyota) and it's a real neat little truck. It gets very good fuel mileage. never mind the fact it's the same size of a compact. Has anyone ever thought of what would happen to the US market if it had access to every manufacture?

    Looks like a neat little truck. 16 inch wheels and good ground clearance, Dana 44 and 66 spicer axles, and a 850 pound payload, little 4 cyl diesel should get pretty good mileage. Now if we turbo the motor and put some big meats on those axles....

    I like the look of that truck. It's trying to look like a truck. Not a truck with a frou-frou look.

    ps in german stands for horsepower (Pferdenstarke). I don't know if the turks use it too, but I kinda guess that's what it is.

    Hope the rating in the "Power" column, 90 ps, isn't refering to how many passengers it's powerful enough to haul!

    probably gross weight not what it will haul, that would bring capicity down to about 500 lbs
