Great Little 4x4! — I absolutely love my Suzuki! Before it I owned the older version of it (1990 Geo Tracker) and it was such a rock solid vehicle that I bought this one- and I wasn't disappointed. It is great on gas (I get about 550K from a 45L tank- so approx 9L/100K) and super fun to drive in the summer with the roof off. It also performs very well in the winter in 4 wheel drive, and although I haven't done much off roading in this one, it has been capable of everything I have put it through so far. My only complaints about it are that it is slow on acceleration and the manual transmission is geared so low that when I'm doing 120K/H in fifth, the engine is screaming at 3500rpm. Aside from the fact that it's not built for lots of highway driving, its a great vehicle and I'd recommend it to anyone who asked!

Pros: Excellent year round performance, lots of fun

Cons: Acceleration

Suzuki Vitara And The Skinny Pedal On The Right — The Suzuki Vitara struggles to pull the skin off a rice pudding. Performance around the 'burbs is barely adequete. However......get it into the sand and it comes into its own. Suddenly it becomes a fun car, in the environment it was built for. It floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee....making light work of Landcruisers , Patrols and other such heavy vehicles.

Pros: Sandboarding

Cons: Traffic LIght Derbies

Cons: Slow and handles like abarge or ST185

Another Summer Toy — The Vitara was a fun car to own it was a reasonable priced 4x4 off roader soft top not that it ever went off road much. I bought the car because I thought it would be a fun car to own and it was I owned this car at the same time I owned the BMW convertible and it was a nice alternative different pace of life car. Take the roof off on a nice summer evening and have a drive across the hills to Whitby

Pros: Trendy little capable 4x4 and it was a soft top too. Great for camping trips to scotland.

Cons: Cost a fortune to run due to the gear ratio's on the gearbox it was cheaper on fuel to use the 2.8 BMW to

Urban 4x4 — It's petrol, it's 1.6 L, it's ALL manual and I like it. It's the art of cars in its simplest form yet it's very reliable (maybe because of the simplicity). 30 mpg makes it a reasonable car (4x4) to sit in and drive in the city, and its accelaration is not bad at all compared to normal 'cars'. In fact I seldom lost a start-up at traffic lights. It's more like sitting in a proper car than in an un-comfy 4x4 like Freelander alike.

Pros: Cheap, reliable and car-like. You'll never be worried about getting caught speeding again!

Cons: You'll never be worried about getting caught speeding again...
