2005 Suzuki Jimny JLX 1.3 cc petrol
The only small 4WD car to buy!
Nothing has gone wrong with the car, perhaps because it is still quite new.
When I read the reviews I was nearly afraid of buying this car, but when I made my test drive I found that the car was not noisy at highway and it is more comfortable than I could expect. Of course, I have the comfort pack included with air condition and more. And the car has 4WD and has low petrol consumption -Seems to be a very good buy!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Do you still have the Jimny and if so how has it been - what's the verdict on the handling, especially on the motorway or wet roads?

I borrowed the car while on vacation. We drove all day long through an island in Greece - it was great because of the roof having been taken off, no need for a/c (despite the hot summer day). It is a funny thing and I enjoyed it very very much, but I wouldn't buy one. First: because it has virtually no space for luggage and second: because cornering on the road really feels dangerous. Now I don't drive fast, but I live in a city and in dense traffic or high-speed motorways you sometimes can't avoid unexpected maneuvering, which would eventually turn the car on the roof. However - on that Greek island it was a good choice.
