1990 Suzuki Samurai JL 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

Mine was bought by a naive young Marine (myself) for $500, thinking that I was getting a great deal. I had owned a 94 Tracker before that (same as Suzuki Sidekick) and it was a great vehicle. The Samurai I had was not. It ran rough (turned out to be running on three cylinders), had no power (see prior comment), barely fit me inside (I'm 6 foot tall, but I had plenty of space in the Tracker which is only slightly larger), leaked oil from everywhere, clutch was out of alignment, and would not engage 4-wheel drive. The one good thing I can say for ti was I got my full $500 back in trade when I bought my 96 Jeep Cherokee.

Best Features

small size, great starter vehicle for an off-road build-up

Worst Features

engine (power, reliability, efficiency)
