1990 Suzuki Sierra JX 1.3L N/A petrol from Australia and New Zealand
The most inexpensive, reliable 4WD ever!
Apart from the obvious servicing of the Sierra, I did bend my front axle in some sand dune, just north of Yanchep, due to excessive speed and a large bump, however could have easily been prevented.
I am just about to change the clutch, but it has the original clutch from the factory still in it, and it is just about to crack 162,000km.
Oh and it popped a radiator hose, no biggie, but other than that nothing.
If you are after a comfortable on road 4WD, don't buy a Sierra, but if you are a off-road fanatic, I recommend a Sierra to you!
It tends to get blown around a bit on the highways, nut off-road my car has out performed many landys and patrols!
The best 4WD ever I reckon!
The fuel burn is obviously a lot less than bigger 4WD, s, but I get between 10 - 13L per 100km, partly to do with my 2 inch exhaust though... but before I had that installed I got around 8.5L/100km, so not too bad I think.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
