Summary:

The engine is too small for the car

Faults:

The engine was damaged... developed cracks in the head, mixed water with oil.

General Comments:

Though I replaced the engine twice with original second hand engines, I never had the luck to have the machine run for more than 15 days without trouble.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I am sorry that you had a bad experience with this little Suzuki. I have owned two and the only real problem I ever had was cheaply made lug nuts and the really junkie carb. Both of these had over 200,000 miles on them. They were also just about perfect off road.
