Good beater by tonyducks on 08/26/2004. Trim: 1989 Suzuki Sidekick JA soft-top, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: 150K miles and minimal repairs, rust is the only issue which is not unmanageable. I still drive it everyday and expect to make it to 200K. Gas mileage is acceptable. If I were to buy another, I would just inspect the frame for rust. Especially around the trailing arms connecting the rear differential. In the snow, the four wheel drive is outstanding. Also, the brakes and tires tend to last a long time because the car is so light. The car is easy to fit into urban parking spots.
Cons: Slightly underpowered. Interior trim is cheesy and cheap, but who cares, the car justs keeps running.
Overall review: I would buy another sidekick or tracker (sister car). Durable and cheap. Convertible is great fun.
