1997 Suzuki X-90 1.6 from North America
I have only owned the car for about three months now. So far so good. Have done nothing mechanical to it other than the oil and filter changes every 5000 kilometers as advised by the dealer.
Power Windows seem to be rather slow. While surfing on the internet I notice the motor kits for these always seem to be on auction so replacement of these seems likely.
Disappointed in the trunk as there is no spring that allows the trunk to stay open. You have to hold it with one hand while loading with the other. Can be rather difficult at times. I made a stick to use to hold it up to solve the problem. I thought for the money though it should have been something Suzuki did automatically.
My passenger side t-bar roof leaks slightly in heavy rainfall, but nothing major.
So really just a couple of small things wrong, but overall an awesome vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

There is an X-90 owners group on Yahoo that has a detailed description of swapping the torsion rods that hold the truck up. When you swap the left and right rods the trunk lid pops open and stays open. My car only has 24,000 miles on it and won't stay up so I suspect that the rods were installed wrong at the factory rather than think that they've weakened in such a short time.

I have a 1996 X90 made the Jan. of 96 and in the trunk there is a gas charged shock to hold the trunk open.
I think suzuki put it in for the extra weight of the spoiler, so check it out if yours has one. It would be on the left side of the trunk near the spear tire.
