1987 Suzuki Samurai from North America
Get a Wrangler!
Catalytic converter went out at 20,000 miles. The dealer replaced it at no cost.
It threw a connecting rod at about 100,000. Because the ex-wife didn't check the oil.
Developed a bad oil leak at about 70,000, and I could never find it. May have been a cracked block near the water pump.
It was a fun little thing to drive.
Great in the Wisconsin winter. I bought it new in California, then moved back.
Got tired of looking for the oil leak, it wasn't burning oil, but left tracks everyplace. Just when I thought it was fixed, it started again.
Gutless, even for a small 4 cyl, it lacked power. My Schwinn was faster.
But in the winter, I could climb over snow that was hanging up snow plows. Because it was so light.
All in all, I would never get another. Have a Grand Cherokee now. Same gas mileage, lots more power and room.
I called it my "Japanese Jeep". Sorry Jeep. I realize now that it was a disgrace.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
