What used Suzuki Jimny 4x4 will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Suzuki Jimny 4x4?

The Jimny has always been one of the cheapest new 4x4s, and it's the same in the used market. Other than the Daihatsu Terios, you simply can't find another 4x4 of the same age and with the same mileage for less. It even makes the Mitsubishi Shogun Pinin look dear - no mean feat.

In terms of daily running costs, the Jimny is pretty much on a par with the Terios. It does only a couple of miles less to each gallon (38.7mpg), but the two cars' insurance costs are virtually identical (groups 7 to 9) and routine maintenance costs are slightly less on the Suzuki. What's more, if you need to repair your Jimny, there should be no nasty shocks. According to Warranty Direct, both average repair bills and dealer labour rates for Suzuki are among the very lowest of all makes.
