1989 Suzuki Sidekick JLX 1.3L from North America
Died at 360,000 miles!
Threw a piston through the block at 360,000 miles!
I love this car so much.
The only time it got stuck is when I forgot to put it in 4x4, and took it into 4 ft of mud.
The MPG isn't bad for a 4x4; I averaged 24MPG.
The seats are not good for long trips, but are fine for 40 to 50 mile trips.
The suspension is decent for being 20 years old.
It did throw a rod at 360000 miles. I love this car so much I ordered a new engine for a 1996, and put it in my 1989. It went from 90 hp to 120hp. Now I love it even more, and would recommend a Sidekick to anyone.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
