The Daihatsu YRV is a mini MPV which was manufactured by the Japanese automaker Daihatsu from 2000 to 2005. The name is short for "Young Recreational Vehicle". The car was aimed at young mothers who needed a car big enough to take the kids to school yet small enough to park. Often criticized by Japanese reviewers for the ongoing problems of 'remote steering' at speed.
