Beyond excellent in EVERY aspect!
Head gasket and fan clutch recently.
Front brake rotor sticking.
Bought and did a frame-off restoration on a 1988 Suzuki Samurai recently, only to have my left knee prohibit manual gear shifting. Had to sell the Samurai.
You might wonder what would inspire purchase of a vehicle this age with nearly 200,000 miles on it?
A great 'love' for this type of vehicle remained, so I began searching for a solid Sidekick, with auto trans and power steering.
Found this one in amazing condition, bought it and drove it through snowstorms for 200 miles coming home. Love at first drive. She did 35 MPG and never complained. Learned from my mechanic that the head gasket, fan clutch and rotors are shot.
Tough little machine didn't complain once, and certainly didn't quit on the drive home.
Passes like a dream, keeps pace with all traffic on the interstate, maneuvers brilliantly, and is quite comfortable for several hours without a break. No complaints about her performance or livability. Body and frame are solid after all these years, also, along with interior seats, dash and windows.
Great product build!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
