Is the Toyota Avanza a Toyota or a Daihatsu?

We all know the Toyota Avanza. The strangely proportioned 7-seater MPV that has the ground clearance of an SUV. While opinions are split between the car’s look, there was no denying that it was a helpful workhorse whether you’re ferrying workers or family around. Those on the elderly side also love the height clearance as it means easier ingress and egress! If you’re a very observant person, you would notice that according to the Avanza’s VIN plate, th

This also means that many cars have been left parked for an extended period of time.To be clear, leaving a car parked for an extended period of time won’t damage your car. It’s not unusual for new cars to be parked at a dealer’s lot for months before it is sold.
