    No also auto but got better consumption. Had a Jimny till we ran out of seats. GV was the natural progression from there. Cant complain one bit but wouldn't mind a Jimny as well

    Went along with the Suzuki Club outing on Sunday at Honingklip.
    With the Auto box, lift kit and decent tires she just purrrs through the obstacles.

    Missed Red Hill somehow. Think we took a wrong turn somewhere but I'm as happy as a chappy with this purchase!!

    Took 6 weeks to find a replacement block, I think it eventually came from A stock yard in Germany).
    I was about the 10th GV to have had this issue in SA, there was a batch from the production line that had an inferior short block, of which about 20 odd came to SA.

    Since then no issues whatsoever.
    Mine has just gone in. Cracked block. I guess there was more than 20. When Northcliff told me mine had a cracked block, they had 3 others in the workshop with the same issue.

    Good luck. I hope Suzuki start fixing this at no cost as a goodwill measure. We don't all have 80k hanging about for an engine.

    What is your mileage BTW?
