    Re: Programming of key

    I think Suzuki went cheapskate on the central locking system on the Jimny. The Grand Vitara and the old SX4 have that system - one press driver's door, 2 presses all doors. Those two also have unlock...

    It depends on the circumstances. There is an obstacle at Hennops that I was able to do easily with my Jimny with TC that the SJ's with Much bigger tyres and diff-locks could not do. The Diff lock...

    Re: Suzuki Jimny Qustions

    The stock tyres are crap. Changing them to a better all terrain in 215/75R15 makes a huge difference. Unless loaded, 1.6 bar all round gives the most comfortable ride on tar.

    There is an easy fix for this. There is a plug near the ignition that can be unplugged. I can't find the pics right now. I'll post back here when I find them.

    The only thing you can turn off when in low range is "hill hold".
    ESP can be turned off in high range, but reactivates over 30kph.

    I have had my Jimny since Nov 2018, if the traction control could be turned off, I would know about it. Please give the reference in the manual where it says the traction control can be turned off.

    The manual isn't much faster. Yes, it can maintain 120kph on the highway. Top speed is around 150kph.
    Even though it is slow, it is still fun to drive.

    Depends on what you want it for. Hard-core off-road, then auto. Milder trails and overlanding, definitely manual.

    You won't be disappointed with it's off-road abilities. I've done virtually everything with mine. From doing Koos se klim at Moegatle (when it was totally stock), to Baboons pass and DVR Falls.

    It depends what the goal is. If you are after better off-road performance, then definitely tyres first. If you are after improving the ride, then suspension first.
