This car is just awesome! 175,800 miles and still kickin'! A bit worn, but reliable as the day it was bought. Needs axles at the moment but it's still on the originals. Maintenance has been excellent. New clutch in 2003 and just scheduled maintenance in between. Doesn't get there fast, but you will get there. Ride is stiff, but drives like a go cart. Just point it and it goes where you want. This car has been on the interstate, city streets and in the woods where only a goat would go. May not handle it with grace, but gets the job done. My hat is off to Suzuki for building such a tough little car! By the way the engine is original and never been torn down. Still getting 40-42 mpg.
