 I have had this Samurai since about 2004.  I drove it every day for quite a few years and then just when needed in the winter.  It's never given me a problem. 

It has the Sidekick conversion that makes it very desirable.  I also have an extra sidekick engine that I can sell separately.  The Sidekick engine really give a Samurai much needed horsepower. 

This Samurai has been in the Pennsylvania winters and does have rust as you can see.  It has been patched over the years and has always passed inspection.  The windshield is cracked as the hood flew up one day and cracked it.  It has good tires. 

It has been started up regularly, but with the ethanol gas the fuel pump was clogging up.  It has just been replaced. 

When I moved it last, a brake line blew.  I bought the new brake line, but have not installed it.  The rest of the brakes are good.  You can replace the brake line or crimp it shut. 

It's always had a hard top on it which has protected it inside.  I am keeping the hard top, but have a nice soft top and bows that will go with it. 

There is also a spare for it, not shown. 

You are welcome to come see it or drive it if you are near Somerset.  This would make a good trail vehicle or daily driver. 

A $500 non-refundable deposit is due within 24 hours of end of auction.  Balance is due within 7 days.  Car must be picked up within 14 days unless prior arrangements have been made.

Suzuki reopens India plant post-riot with police outnumbering workers

Fri, 24 Aug 2012 18:00:00 EST

Suzuki's plant in Manesar, India builds cars for Australia, specifically its Alto small car. Or at least they were building cars before violent worker riots forced the factory to close. The plant has been idled for five weeks as a result of worker violence that led to the death of one manager and 95 injuries. The riot was spurred over a labor dispute - specifically, a gulf in salaries between temporary workers and their salaried counterparts who earn triple the contract workers' wages.
According to reports, on Tuesday, the factory re-opened with more than 1,200 police officers stationed around the plant. The staff of actual workers at the plant numbers just 75 currently, meaning the police force greatly outnumbers Suzuki employees.
The number of employees will eventually grow to 300, and the officers will run in shifts of 100 at a time, but the initial disparity of workers to police is meant as a show of force to the more than 500 permanent and 500 temporary workers who were found to be involved in a July 18 riot.

Suzuki recalling 2,800 XL7 models over faulty fuel pump

Sat, 29 Dec 2012 15:05:00 EST

A recall has been issued for the 2007 Suzuki XL7, but only those vehicles either bought or registered in four states: Texas, Arizona, California and Nevada. Potentially 2,380 of the SUVs manufactured from June 13, 2006 to December 22, 2006 could have an issue with their fuel pump modules: The plastic supply or return port could crack. If that happens, it could lead to a fuel leak and then to a fire.
Suzuki hasn't said when the recall will begin. Once it does, owners will be notified and can have their dealers make the necessary repairs free of charge. There's a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration below with more information.

Suzuki calls in 26,000 Daewoo-built Veronas for overheating lights

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 18:02:00 EST

Suzuki is recalling yet another Daewoo-built model due to possible problems with the daytime running light module in the instrument panel. This time it covers about 25,899 units of the Suzuki Verona from the 2004 through 2006 model years that need fixing. Like the repair campaign of the Forenza and Reno in May, it's possible for the part to overheat, melt and potentially cause a fire.
According to the Chronology of Principal Events section in the defect notice submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this recall was actually a direct result of the Forenza/Reno campaign. After finding the problem in those vehicles, General Motors Korea started investigating for more affected models and discovered that the Verona was also at risk. However, the report says that no cases of melting or fires have been found in the Verona.
Obviously, Suzuki will be notifying affected owners and will replace the DRL module free of charge. Scroll down to read the recall request or check out the full defect notice in PDF format, here.
