Signal Mountain, Tennessee, United States

Purchased from Extreme Zuks in Florida for $6700, and have installed high torque engine by Extreme Zuks Off Road $2400.  (1.3 Flat top pistons, .040 over, new Weber Carb, new rebuilt transmission, new clutch, new front end seals in the bearings and new bearings in the rear axles,-the car is driven by my son and we live on a mountain and we wanted higher torque and hp for driving up and down Signal Mountain TN).   Installed uphostered seats that are covered in nice black cloth(seat covers have been on since we did the seats) recovered and installed rear seat. New Carpet/ Paint is less than a year old. Installed custom headliner with insulation to reduce heat in the summer, this really looks good in a tin top. Has the customer shifter knobs on both shifters  from Low Range Off-Road.  Window cranks, door glass rubbers, and inside and outside handles are new. Installed the windshield wiper blade support plates as a preventative measure since these are a stress point, while doing that we installed a new wiper motor behind the dash and insulated and re-taped to factory specs all the AC hoses and connecting pipes inside the dash. New Radiator and Hoses. Heater works great(Heater Core and Dash removed and cleaned, all dash lights work and tac works great from Extreme Zuks Off road. Exhaust Header from Extreme Zuks.  Samurai has a great sound system by Pioneer that has 6 speakers and is wired for and additional amp/subs for the back, the sound system sounds great.  Installed factory AC on this car and it works great, blows very cold air and we live where it gets near 100 in the summer and it provides good AC.  Rims have just been powder coated white to original color.  New Hankook Optimo tires with less than 1000 miles on them. New brakes and rotors have less than 2000 miles on front and back.   He has recently gone to college and has put most of his money into another daily driver Sammy and needs the money.  This will be a great vehicle for some lucky person, its eye appeal is unmatched.  This car has 2 defects that have not been fixed, there is a small dash crack above the digital clock installed in the dash, and there is a slight and I mean slight leak on the rear transfer case back seal, I have only added about a half a pint in the last year it was ran and I have the seal I have just not replaced it as it has not been an issue.  I have always used 50/50 Lucas Oil additive and differential lube in the transmission, transfer case, and front and rear differentials/pumpkin, and have changed this every 6 months since we had the car, change oil one a month, I do this on all 3 of my Samarai's I have had.

This will be a great vehicle for some lucky person, its eye appeal is unmatched, it would make for a great car for a daily driver, it gets about 25-32 miles per gallon and has passed all emissions testing in TN which is a tough place to pass.  New Catalytic converter and exhaust system with muffler installed also.

Suzuki recalling 200K crossovers over airbag woes

Mon, 16 Sep 2013

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 Chapter 11 bankruptcy plans approved by US court

Tue, 05 Mar 2013

It's pretty much a done-deal now, folks. A US bankruptcy judge has approved Suzuki's plans to wind down its operations in the States. As part of Suzuki's Chapter 11 proceedings, its automotive unit will cease to exist in the US, leaving the motorcycle, ATV and marine units to function as Suzuki Motor of America.
It's not clear how many vehicles are left on the 219 remaining Suzuki dealership lots - the company reported sales of 1,764 in February - but the automaker has assured customers that warranty service and parts will remain available. Suzuki made an investment of $45 million to ensure its past and current customers aren't completely left in repair-work limbo.
Check out the complete announcement from Suzuki below for more information, and please join us in mourning the loss of the Kizashi sedan and SX4 hatch, two vehicles we are legitimately going to miss when this whole sordid affair is done and over with.

Incentives aid smooth Suzuki wind down

Tue, 04 Dec 2012

American Suzuki is continuing to offer buyers substantial incentives even as the company winds down operations. Those looking to nab a new Suzuki vehicle will find rebates of between $500 and $2,000 and zero-percent financing for up to 72 months as dealers look to liquidate inventory following the automaker's filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month. The strategy is working so far. Last month saw Suzuki sell a total of 2,224 vehicles, up 22 percent compared to the same time period in 2011. The Japanese manufacturer says it will continue the incentives through December.
Suzuki had around 5,000 units in dealer inventory in the US when it went into bankruptcy protection, with an additional 1,500-1,700 vehicles headed to dealers at that time. The company says it will continue to honor warranties moving forward using its current dealer network. Most of the dealerships will become Suzuki service and parts stores after American Suzuki shutters car sales in the US.
