Great car, disappointed head unit

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. Show details

Drive it like a motorcycle

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. Show details

Awesome 4x4

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.

Greg L. · Jimny (1998-2024)

Hi there. My 98 jimny is an automatic. Normal gearshift’s up until about 20 minutes of driving at around 80 kms per hour average. Then out of no where a couple of erratic shifts, the revs climb then the car goes into safe mode and will not shift gears up or down, just stays in the one gear which appears to be third gear.
I can pull over and turn the car off then back on and the shift changes go back to normal for another period of about 10 minutes then back to the original problem. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
