2001 Suzuki Vitara JLX-Santana 1.6L, 16v, 4 cylinder.
A reliable urban and off-road friend
Up to now absolutely nothing.
Successfull 4x4 driving over mud and snow.
Seperate ladder frame makes quiet and comfortable.
Difficult driving against side winds.
Brakes efficient and safe with reliable brake pads still original.
High quality, but complicated stereo unit.
Always starts easily even at extreme cold.
Door rubbers leaks wind noise.
Two front rubber pads over the ladder frame chasis subject to splash water from front wheels results in squeal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
