    Re: New Jimny automatic

    The auto actually works quite well. It would be nice if it had more ratios though, it is only a 4 speed, so the revs tend to get quite high when it changes down on the hills. There have been a...

    Suzuki Grand Vitara, but avoid pre-2010 (Some had an engine block cracking problem that surfaced around 90k km, after that they solved the issue).

    Re: Tesla 1million mile battery..

    That's pretty good. I spent R75k in maintenance on my Jeep over 3 years (10 years ago), and the same amount in petrol over the same period (6km/l).

    Re: SHOULD I BUY A 2010 Suzuki Jimny??

    130 000Km is reasonably low mileage for a Jimny. The main draw back the Jimny has for overlanding is the fuel range. It is very tempting to put a lift kit and bigger tyres on, however, this has a...

    Re: Rattles on a 2018 GV

    The latch that holds the back seat down on mine used to rattle. It was fine when someone sat in the back I ended up with a wad of rag under the seat to keep it quiet.
  8. Re: Suzuki Jimny ground clearance with a mountain bike?

    It would depend on the type of rack that they want to use. Note that the racks that mount on the spare wheel of the Jimny should not be used - the back door cannot take the weight and buckles.

    The only problem I have heard of with the Jimny's was someone driving on the pans in Botswana with an auto in high range and the ESP detected wheel slip, and caused the car to do 360's.

    Re: Jimny Auto 2020 duine traction control

    In high range ESP is turned on over 30kph. In low range ESP is off. There is no way to disable the traction control. It may be possible by removing fuses, but I haven't tried yet.

  14. Re: 2020 jimny beep beep for key in ignition door open

    There is a plug close to the indicator stalk that you need to unplug. I did post pics here a while back, but I changed phones in the meantime, so don't have the pics any more.

    Not available in SA. Suzuki Auto SA also don't seem to be interested in providing it.

    Google maps works great, Waze also works, but I have had issues with it where it stops working occasionally.

    Re: Suzuki Jimny lift options

    The tyres don't fit because your front bumper is not in the position it's supposed to be. Grab it by the underside and give it a good tug forward.

    Not at all.

    The 235's do, but that is mostly because I damaged the front bumper by diving into a donga.

    Usually using something like a shifting spanner works better than a hammer.

    Re: What lift kit is the best for the jimny?

    Des-Sol do a similar kit, and I think the price is fairly similar. If you can swing a spanner, fit the kit yourself and save a few more bucks. It's easy enough to DIY.

    You might want to either start before 8:30 or after 11:00. There are usually quite a lot of Suzuki's and we enjoy ourselves, and take our merry time about it.
