 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 recalling 200K crossovers over airbag woes

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 08:29:00 EST

Suzuki may not be selling any new cars in the US anymore, but there are still plenty of them on American roads. Nearly 200,000 of those will need to be taken off said roads - for a little while, at least.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for 2006-2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara SUVs and 2007-2011 SX4 crossovers due to a faulty airbag sensor. The issue apparently results from the front passenger-side floor mat causing the Occupant Classification System (OCS) sensor to malfunction over time, so whether there's a kid or an adult in the front seat, the airbag could deploy in the event of a crash.
As a result, Suzuki Motor of America is calling in 193,936 vehicles to replace the front passenger-seat cushion assembly. That's a whole lot of cars to recall, but it comes as no big surprise. Owners can expect to be notified in October. Full details in the recall announcement below.

Suzuki Authentics Concept is genuine but drab

Sat, 20 Apr 2013 13:59:00 EST

Looks can certainly be deceiving. Have a glance at this new Suzuki Authentics concept, for example - we were told that this would, essentially, be a proper sedan version of the new SX4, but our folks on the ground in Shanghai tell us it's actually much larger. Like, bigger than the Kizashi. (Hey, remember the Kizashi?)
Regardless, Suzuki says that the Authentics concept previews a C-segment vehicle for the Chinese market. A good move, too, since that segment has the highest volume in the Chinese market. (That's why automakers like Ford, for example, have more than one offering in the class.) If we're honest, the Authentics concept looks a bit "meh" for our tastes - there isn't a whole lot of emotion going on here with the design. Consider it a competitor for that spiffy new Ford Escort that also took the stage here in Shanghai.
We don't have any more details about the Authentics concept at the moment, but considering the fact that Suzuki has officially exited the US market, at least we don't have to worry about this thing showing up on our shores anytime soon.

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.
