There is nothing wrong with Daihatsu cars :)

They are the market leaders for kei cars in Japan and is pretty much owned by Toyota. Toyota gets Daihatsu's small cars as sells them as Toyota and Daihatsu takes Toyota's large cars and sells them as Daihatsus. There is a lot of R&D and tech sharing going on between the two companies.  The Move is sold as a Subaru and a Perodua (or is atleast based on it). In some countries the Move was sold as the Daihatsu Charade.

Which Move are you looking at ? THe Move comes with a 660cc engine and in some markets came with a 1000cc engine.

Usability wise, being a kei car it will be quite handy and economical doing city runs in traffic. Driving at highway speeds, pulling up mountains with the car full and with a lot of luggage will make you push the engine hard.

Being a somewhat uncommon car you might have to do a bit of work to find body parts (You can always have them imported)  Engine components are shared with some other Daihatsu (and depending on the model even Toyota) cars so you should be able to find some. It won't be as easy as walking in to any random shop and buying the part though...

Daihatsu even going to offer 48V mild hybrid systems like Wagon-R soon, where as Toyota only has full hybrids in their lineup. I am quite sure it will be a hit here.

Well...Toyota (being the parent company of Daihatsu) has been teamed up with Suzuki for about 3 or 4 years now (with the more stronger buy in to each other happening between late last year and start of this year)....part of the agreement was that Toyota shares their Hybrid tech with Suzuki and share development of small EV vehicles (and even share models (they did not specify in which markets). When Toyota signed the agreement it was obvious that in many ways it was Toyota plugging in Daihatsu in to Suzuki (as that is Toyota's small car arm). The huge concern was that this would pretty much completely take away any product differentiation between Suzuki and Daihatsu.
