1988 Suzuki Samurai base 1.3 from North America
Best vehicle I ever had
Lockouts, re-lubricated at about 30K. Appeared not to have been greased! Rustsicles had formed under covers and on splines would not engage.
Had rotors & drums turned at about 40K, tried metallic pads (ouch!) switched to organic :)
Put 205 70's on it at about 30K...almost too wide for snow, but great for over-sand.
Hit a deer at about 86K, new fender & grille.
64 horsepower teaches patience & humility. Got 26MPG like a clock; didn't matter how I drove it! Worst MPG: 15, after a week of surfcasting.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
