The best and most dependable vehicle I have ever driven
Well, beside the fact that I rolled it once a couple years ago, the only think I have had with it was the computer connector come out of the computer and I overloaded the alternator so I had to get another one. Besides that, I have had absolutely no trouble. It is, however, top heavy.
I got this vehicle when I turned 16 and at first glance, it looks...puny. When I rolled it 3 months later, for some reason I got attached to it. It was totally mechanically sound right after we flipped it back over. I conduct my lawn mowing business (about 54 full sized yards) and I pull a 4,000 pound flat bed trailer with it for 3 straight summers every day all summer long. It does excellent on gas compared to my Chevy 1500 truck with 350 engine. It does excellent on the highway except when passing. It will haul a 12,000 pound load at 65 mph getting a little over 20 mpg. This Suzuki Sidekick is also a beast at offroad. This is the most reliably, fuel efficient vehicle with enough cab space to suit me and my 3 employees. Also, the engine runs very smooth and the manual transmission is wonderful.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
