Great offroad car
The most common issue with this model is rust.
Second thing is the steering case, which needs to be replaced ~50 euros and the rubber bushes.
It's the best cheap offroad you can buy. I got it in places that I would only dream about.
It works like a dream on snow and mud with the proper tires.
I own another 2 cars, one for the city and one for long drives, but for rides in the mountains the Samurai rocks.
I got also in some offroad competitions, and I can say that it beats the Patrol, Land Cruiser and Pajero easily (all cars standard equipped).
I don't plan to sell this car ever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
