1991 Suzuki Vitara JLX from Australia and New Zealand
Trusty, reliable, and oh so cute!!!
To get her on the road we had to get the CV joints done and brake pads adjusted, plus replace a side mirror. $A450.
Today we replaced the spark plug leads, which were extremely worn and making her pull and jerk. She is now running smooth as... $A45.
Air conditioning out needs refilling but at $A250... windows will suffice.
Upon purchase in August 2008 Suzi was in extremely good condition for her age, the interior very clean, and no marks or wearing on her seats. She looked even better with a cut and polish, which she has had done twice since I have owned her.
I personally think she handles well, she turns really easily, gives a quick response, to park we can squeeze in anywhere, extremely reliable and petrol wise no more expensive than my Toyota Celica.
Great view from open tinted windows - very safe - and as far as driving in the wet, like any 4wd, use common sense!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
