    My car

    I like it! yes it's bit of a fight on the road, but still easy'er then most 4x4's, to handle. Off-road it's really fun, an easy to ride. The 4wd is easy to use, and reliable all the way.

    small price, big fun!

    My car

    This was the biggest motoring mistake I have ever made. The car felt dangerous on the motorway and was frightening in heavy winds. This was not helped by a wheel wobble that the dealer couldn't fix.

    It had a number of faults, including the wheel wobble and an oil leak which the dealer dismissed. After 11 months the wipers failed in heavy rain. Suzuki Assistance's contractor refused to put it on a truck, forcing me to drive 20 miles in heavy rain to a garage. After 3 days the dealer still had not attempted to repair it, so I exchanged it that same afternoon for a secondhand Nissan Almera which turned out to be fantastic.

    When I contacted Suzuki customer care they were rude. No-one in my family would ever buy another Suzuki product.

    My car

    I have owned one for two years, driving it around Switzerland and the Alps in France near Mont Blanc.

    In winter it comes into its own: I never had to use snow tyres and in March 2006 when there was a day of ice in downtown Geneva, I was very glad of it.

    This is a real 4x4 that is real value for money. On-road ride is not good, but then it is not designed for that.

    Suzuki even points this out in the advertising for the vehicle.

    My car

    I have been in a Suzuki Jimny. It is such a good car it will probably be one of the best cheap 4x4s in the Suzuki range.

    In my opinion, take a test drive.
