    Cause of Problem: Normal wear and tear according to Suzuki dealer

    Cost of repair: Brakes R1 900, Suspension R5 600, Tensioner R300
    Who did repair: Suzuki Dealer

    Comment: Bought the vehicle new and serviced every 10 000km by Suzuki dealer. Do mainly tar road driving. Parts are very expensive and are not always available. I have a 1997 Isuzu 280DT that I pull a caravan with and replaced disc pads after 100 000km - so 10 000 to 20 000km on a much lighter vehicle that does no towing is not acceptable.

    Note: belt had been squealing for a few seconds at startup for more than a year, but would never make a sound when i take it to the mechanic to tell him about the noise. He checked tension on two separate occasions and said it's fine.

    Problem: Massive vibration when driving low speed (which is nearly always when in the city)
    Specifics of repair work carried out: Universal on the short propshaft (between the gearbox and transfer case) worn out. Replaced propshaft as the universal is not replaceable
    Cost of repair: I had a spare
    Who did repair: Me
    Vehicle under warranty: Nope
    Was damage covered by warranty: Nope
    Comment: I have big hands and that propshaft sits in a small space. Loosening those bolts on the propshaft happened 1 click of the ratchet at a time... And I had to loosen the exhaust because it was in the way. And there was a bit of an oil spill as the propshaft was pulled out of the gearbox. The oil seal is still holding well.
