1992 Suzuki Sidekick JX 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

It is a great surf truck, it takes your beer and your boards and your friends to the beach, on to the beach, across the beach and back from the beach. It has 180k miles on it and the saltwater is rather quickly taking its toll, but I'll probably buy another when the repair bill is no longer worth fixing the one I've got. The door handle thing is annoying (I just roll the windows down and open it from the outside) some 4 door parts are expensive and/or hard to find (muffler and brake master cylinder specifically) It is a great basic truck, it isn't for the cayenne crowd, it is for someone who would like a basic 4wd truck that you can pick up cheap and have some fun with


Favorite Features

4wd it is actually pretty good. I can follow a Tacoma anywhere, sometimes I have to be a little more careful, the Sidekick is better in deep sand, room for 4 friends and some beer it's basic, so stuff doesn't break too often and is fixable if it does. My dog likes sticking her head out the window


Suggested Improvements

Interior door handles are dependent on the plastic cover thing! Which engineering intern designed that bit of brilliance?

1992 Suzuki Sidekick JS 2dr SUV w/Soft Top


Review

I bought my Suzuki for my first vehicle and sold it to a buddy of mine. When I bought it, the kid I bought it from beat the hell out of it, I didn't beat it too badly, but then my friend I sold it to beat it. It does still run, still moves, but not inspected. it has 180000+ on it and refuses to die. The tranny makes noise, the body's held on by 1 or 2 out of 8 body mounts, the engine rattles, the clutch isnt the best, the frame isn't real good, but after the beating it took, that's pretty good actually and it still goes anywhere you point it. If there is one thing about this Sidekick, it deserves to be gold plated and put in a glass case somewhere, but we will continue driving it till it dies.


Favorite Features

Can take a whooping, goes anywhere, runs no matter what.


Suggested Improvements

Body mounts should be heavier built.

Review

I have owned my Sidekicke for 2 1/2 years now and I have found it to be a simple yet enjoyable SUV to own. It has had some design flaw with the door handles which I have had to replace twice. All other things that have be in need of repair are typical for a SUV of this mileage. Poer isnt the greatest but it sure gets good gas mileage of 25 city and 30 HWY. Body do not have a flake of rust and it is 10 years old. Overall this was a wise buy and I will be looking at the XL-7 as my newxt buy:-)
