Great car, disappointed head unit

published

Starting from about mid 2021 Suzuki Australia started to install a dodgy third party head unit into their cars which doesn't have built-in GPS or maps. This would be not too bad but they refuse to share its wiring or connection diagram thus preventing customers from finding a better replacement. As much as I love the car I hate the installed head unit and don't recommend it to anyone.

Another negative point that my new car came with some rust on the frame. It's not visible unless wheels are removed. I found the rust when I was rust proofing the bottom of the car.

Drive it like a motorcycle.

published

Great small 4x4, cheap to run, as reliable as a Suzuki motorcycle. Not a great highway car as it's got a small engine. Needs to driven like a motorcycle, that is revved out through the gears. If it isn't revved enough it won't make enough power. Keep the oil changed. No problems in 70,000 km of used ownership.

Purchased in for $13,500.

Awesome 4x4

published

Reliable to a fault. Bit heavy on fuel if you keep the mud Tires on. Nothing fancy about the Jimny, it is a toy, but can be a work horse when you need it to be. it has a surprising amount of leg room, I am 1.89m tall and no worries. The Lo and High range ratio is awesome one button 4x4. smooth as. it takes a bit to get used to but I will try to always have a Suzuki in my drive way.

And please, don't buy a small 4x4 when you need a large 4x4 and then complain that it's too small.

Amazing

published

There is no other small 4wd anything like it and don't let the 1.3 litres fool you, it's better everywhere than the big trucks except on the highway. So unless you are a regular interstate traveler it's the best 4wd around. Great on fuel. Fun to drive and goes anywhere
