Awesome vehicle; wish they still make them. A great vehicle from Suzuki.
Value Ranked 1998 Toyota RAV4 2 Door Convertible worse.
"Suzuki Sidekick has more power, handles better, corners better and just is fun to drive. Toyota is somewhat dangerous as it will not merge on freeway safely and seems like it wants to tip over when going thru a roundabout. "
