Most Reliable car I own in snow,mud and freeways.
Love this little car. I replaced the rag top and had a custom top and sunroof made and shipped from Canada. I have used this car for everything and it always has room for more stuff. It has never once let me down and can turn on a dime.

Tough little ute.
I bought this car new in '99 and other than regular maintenance it requires minimal trips to the mechanic. Fun to drive despite it's smaller engine size. Responsive handling with little body roll make it quick and stable around corners and on country roads. It is okay for hauling luggage etc if you are able to fold down the rear seats, otherwise pack light. I do have a few complaints though and they are mostly about the exterior. After just eight years there is heavy rusting on the rocker panels, the real tailgate has seized and thus the door does not open and a rattling heat shield. Inside the door handle on the driver side has snapped off which requires anyone driving to reach outside the window and use the door handle on the outside to get out. All in all.. it seems to be well built mechanically but I think the problems mentioned above indicate Suzuki went cheap on certain things.
