1987 Suzuki Samurai JX 1.3 from North America
This car is great
So far I've had to install the transmission shifter bushing, and randomly tighten things that rattle loose and drive me nuts while I'm sitting at an idle.
It's slow. It doesn't bother me much, because it is perfect for zipping around the city.
Interior is a bit spartan. This also makes any kind of tinkering very simple, as spartan equals easy to work on.
You feel every nook and cranny of the road. Strong suspension components, although they don't articulate very much.
No power steering. I love that.
Amazing gas mileage for a 4x4 that you can use as a material hauler if you have to. I play in a rock band, and have a large guitar rig. It all fits no problem, blizzard or not.
Aside from long distance highway travel, this little truck does everything. Groceries, commuting, cruising, off road. And it's easy on your wallet.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
