1989 Suzuki Sierra from Australia and New Zealand
I'll never sell it
Water pump failed.
O-ring on distributor failed.
Clutch spring broke needing clutch replacement.
Seats have collapsed.
Rust around the windscreen hinges.
Front rotors replaced twice, pads 3 times.
Steering box is getting some play in it.
Sounds unreliable from that list, but it's never failed to get me where I'm going. I've put 250 000 km of very hard driving on it. Driven through salt water nearly to the door handles, driven to work every day, summer and winter. Slide around almost every corner.
Simple to work on, any parts available very quickly from Suzuki at a reasonable price. I've only ever had to wait more than a day for parts just after the earthquake and tsunami.
Great off road if the tyre pressures are right (low).
Some exhaust gas comes in the back if top is on.
Top is very slow to put on and take off.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
