1995 Suzuki Sidekick JX 1.6L 16v
I would buy another in a heartbeat
This little vehicle has been incredibly reliable. I have replaced the normal "wear and tear" components, including clutch, brake pads, all fluids, plugs/wires/rotors. There are no mechanical failures to note. Even after 140,000+ miles, seats are still in excellent condition.
Originally purchased for my commuter vehicle, I have transitioned this vehicle to serious offroad use. It has been modified for severe offroad use, but still manages to be incredibly reliable. Plenty of room for a small family looking for an inexpensive vehicle to own and operate.
I have been so impressed by this Sidekick, that I purchased a new 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Limited with Leather, a V6, etc. We are now looking to add a Suzuki SX4 to the family for my wife as her commuter vehicle. Suzuki's are wonderfully reliable, simple, and fun.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
