 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 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.

2013 Suzuki SX4 gets new generation to carry on without us [w/video]

Wed, 06 Mar 2013 07:00:00 EST

Despite the fact that the coffin has been sealed on Suzuki's US automotive arm, the brand is carrying on elsewhere in the world. The first new product to spearhead the Japanese automaker's product offerings in Europe is this SX4 crossover, making its official debut here at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. You may remember the little SX4 as the cheapest all-wheel-drive car on sale in the US, packing cute styling and efficient, affordable packaging. And it doesn't appear that the formula has changed too much for this new generation, despite what we think are less attractive new duds derived from Suzuki's 2012 S Cross Concept.
The new SX4 is powered by a choice of two 1.6-liter engines - one diesel, one petrol - the former mated to a six-speed manual transmission while the latter uses a CVT with a "seven-speed manual mode" operated by steering wheel-mounted paddles. All-wheel drive remains intact on the SX4, now with four driver-selectable modes and the Allgrip name.
Suzuki is touting the SX4 as having the world's first double sliding glass sunroof, offering "the largest opening areas" in the segment. Overall, the updated interior looks nicely designed and quite functional, though not exactly a shining beacon of refinement.

Suzuki bringing compact iV-4 to Frankfurt

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 09:29:00 EST

Even though American Suzuki Motor Corporation filed for bankruptcy last year and stopped selling cars in the US and Canada as part of its reorganization, there are still plenty of countries around the world where Suzuki continues to sell autos. For those markets, the automaker is working on a compact sport-utility vehicle, called the iV-4, which will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
Suzuki says the iV-4 "embodies the basic ruggedness of an SUV," and that its styling is modern and innovative. We'll have to take Suzuki's word on that one, though the teaser above certainly looks the part, with the grille reminding us of the one found on the Jeep Grand Cherokee (minus a few slats, of course).
Scroll down for the short-and-sweet press release, and expect the full brace of information to be revealed in September.
