Sixteen years after purchasing my 1990 Suzuki Sidekick, we have never had a problem with this car. It has no rust. It's still in mint shape. It starts every time. We have had no break downs. Honestly, every car should be like this.
I love how we went from Ottawa to Flordia on 10 gallons of gas.
It should use a little more room in the back behind the seats.
why buy a diesel for fuel economy, its
noisy, shakey and no one knows how to
fix it. why buy hybrid cars for fuel
economy, they are expensive and not
yet perfected. This SUV is made in
Japan. Not Korea and not USA. In fact,
it is being sold by an american car
maker as GEO Tracker. Why? because
they can't make anything this
perfect. Fun to drive, quality built
and so economical.
For a 1990 year model, it has
everything you can ask for.
All the improvements I thought of was
already done in their newer models.
like ABS, Air Bag, etc.
I have had this car for four years. I
have killed this car, even though I
take care of it like it was new. I used
to go "mudding" with it constantly,
since I didnt have an ATV. I have gone
through 2 axles, 3 sets of tires,
numerous shocks, struts and other
little pieces of equipment that would
brake from excessive abuse off-roading
with the 4 wheel drive and the top off.
It was a fun little car, and would be a
cheap pickup for anyone that likes to
go off-roading and try to kill
themselves. All in all I have no quirks
with the car other than I would have
liked a little more power and a roll
cage. Ha ha !!
Removable top when warm. 4 wheel drive
for off roading.
Soft top stinks for long drives or
highways. More horsepower
