 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 Kizashi recalled due to pesky spiders

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 15:30:00 EST

Spiders seem to love the fuel tanks of Japanese sedans. Mazda had to recall its Mazda6 twice for arachnid webs blocking their car's vent lines. Now, the Suzuki Kizashi is also being called in because spiders can block the car's evaporative canister vent hose, a condition which could cause excessive negative pressure in the tank, eventually leading to a crack and fuel leak. The campaign covers about 19,249 examples of the 2010-2013 model year Kizashi built from October 2009 through July 2012.
According to the automaker's defect notice released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the first report of a spiderweb blocking a vent line was in 2011. It began monitoring field data and found six more incidents from 2011 to 2013. In 2014, there was one more case, and with further investigation, Suzuki decided to initiate a recall. There are no reports of accidents or injuries of the webs causing accidents or injuries in the US.
In a similar move to Mazda, Suzuki is replacing the evaporative canister vent line with one that has a filter in place to keep the spiders out. Also, if the lines are obstructed by webs in a specific vehicle, the fuel tank will also get swapped. Scroll down to read the full recall announcement from NHTSA.

Four seniors to drive around world in pair of Suzuki Jimny SUVs for charity

Fri, 29 Mar 2013 07:58:00 EST

Plenty of us here at Autoblog have designs for epic drives. Whether it's bouncing around the country in an old International or heading from Alaska to Chile on a bike, we like to think we have big aspirations. Or at least we did until we heard about these four gentlemen. You see, Leslie George Carvall, Alan Butler, Glyn Maher and Charles Scott are all in their 70's, and they plan to pile into a pair of Suzuki Jimny SUVs and drive around the world. Sort of makes a hike across country seem like a trip down the block to the local corner store. They're calling it "The Ultimate Challenge," and they plan to undertake the journey for two reasons.
First, they want to prove that age shouldn't stand in the way of people doing what they want to do. Second, the group hopes to raise funds for the 'Heaven Can Wait I'm Busy' group, which aims to direct money toward worthy charities both in the UK and around the world. Save the Children and Oakhaven Hospice are the two currently designated charities.
The trip gets started in just three days, and you can head over to the effort's site to track their progress. The route should cover some 16,500 road miles and 10,375 sea miles. You can also catch up with the project on Facebook.

It's a hard knock life for a N"urburgring rental car

Wed, 12 Dec 2012 10:15:00 EST

Rental cars get no respect. They're abused, misused and flogged mercilessly as athletes in Rental Car Olympics. And that's just at your everyday airport rental counter. The torture gets extreme for rental cars thrashed around Germany's infamous Nürburgring.
Rent4Ring expects its customers to drive its cars around the 'Ring with enthusiasm and, in some cases, less skill than the pros. Rent4Ring just recently retired its Suzuki Swift Sport from its fleet and shared the car's two-year-plus lifetime highlights.
The little hatchback made more than 2,800 laps of the 'Ring over three seasons amounting to more than 310,000 miles driven by 457 different drivers. "Some were fast, some were slow. Some were nice to the car, a few were frankly awful," says a Rent4Ring rep.
