I have had my wonderful Copen since Jan 2004, and I have never had a problem with it until the last year. I needed a new tubo and clutch. I live in Australia, and the State that I'm from doesn't have one Copen for sale. Hence, they are as rare as hens teeth here, as Daihatsu stopped selling cars in Australia, around 2004/2005. I love my Copen to bits, and really don't want another car, but unfortunately, I am thinking I may have to sell it:-(( . I would love to hear from other Copen owners, especially from Down Under! If I do keep my car, I am looking to buy parts so I can store them away, as I have also read, that Japan has now pulled out of the European market, due to the high YEN. Thanks for reading!!!
