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