1989 Suzuki Sidekick JX 1.3 from North America
If you get the chance to buy 1 and pass it up, YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!!
On my 3rd windshield; glass frame flex's a bit to much for the truck's own good.
Original clutch went out at 75,000. Easy to replace and adjust.
Seat sliders springs break to easily. Replacement parts for this tough to find.
Am just beginning to see signs of oil ring wear.
Spark plug holes in head must be checked to ensure you do not strip threads during tune-up. Can happen VERY EASILY!!
Bought the truck as a strictly commuter car. Wound up getting rid of my Taurus as the Suzuki is more reliable. Goes on a daily commute of 90 miles round trip and still only have to fill the tank every other day. At 11 gallons a toss, MAKE ME CRY!!! Now have 137,000 miles on it and shows no signs of wearing out. When will the Big '3' make one like this?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
