It has been very reliable. The only problems have been the pan hard rod eye breaking - which was terrifying! On tarmac I might add. The problem was a poor weld in manufacture. Then there's the wheel wobble at 47 mph. Apparently the latter is very common with Jimnys and I have tried everything to eliminate it with limited success. It is a very practical 4x4 which copes very well with the conditions around our rural area and it's small enough to park easily in town. Given the problems mentioned above, my next car will probably not be a Jimny unless I am very very convinced that Suzuki have done something about them.
