    Default Looking at buying my 1st Jimny 2011 model guys please give input

    Good day guys im looking at buying a jimny 2nd hand it has 120000 on the clock. Must just sign the paperwork. Everything fine on the body even checked floor of the boot for rust and behind the front lights. Went for a ride in it and it has the "death wobble" from 70kmh to 90kmh after that it settles down the dealership said that they will sort that out for me. All im worried about is the milage you guys think it's too high. And with such milage what sort of problems can i expect if any. Will appreciate any response / comments.

    Milage not high. But I won't buy a vehicle with a defect/safety issue.

    The death wobbles is mainly wheel balance that isn't right. TWT usually the best at balancing my jimny had it also and after rebalancing it is smooth all the way

    Wheels must be balanced the correct way....with all wheel nuts tightened to the balancing machine, not just with the standard center nut system. Kilos no issues if well maintained.
