I would like one of these. According to Wiki these are still being built today. It looks like a Samurai to me which I had a 1988 and wish I could have that car back.

Cool

Wadaya call it?

It's cute and looks like a real gas saver.

This bankruptcy has, in a weird way, given me some piece of mind. I've been thinking of trading the SX4 on an alternate vehicle for the reasons stated previously, but now it looks like I'll be keeping it. I do intend to trade/sell our other vehicle (HHR SS) on a Fiat 500c in the spring if all goes according to plan. The SX4 is actually a Fiat Sedici so I'll just be expanding the family with the 500c!

I've been using synthetic oil since Day 1 and it's been driven carefully, so hopefully it will prove to be a 10-15 year vehicle. It certainly will not fetch a decent amount on any trade or sale now. I'm planning on having the gray aluminum wheels resurfaced in a gloss gunmetal black and maybe adding some tasteful red, white, green pinstriping (Italian flag colours). One wheel was actually damaged by brake residue when the rear brakes failed prematurely at 28,000 km (17,000 miles). I'm interested in the stories that others have posted about their trade-in experiences since the Chapter 11 announcement. Cheers.

Those things go a long ways toward Killing Owner Satisfaction. Eh?

Hey Shadow have you joined the Kia Soul forum yet?

Yes, actually three of them. One is in England. Those limeys really love their Souls.
But across the pond, the 1.6L is a Diesel. A Soul with right-drive and a diesel engine just wouldn't be the same.

SUzuki alive in Jamaica
..excerpt from The Jamaica Gleaner, nov 11

........Suzuki Motor Corporation, however, reaffirmed its commitment to the continued development and advancement of Suzuki vehicles in the Caribbean region, including Jamaica.

Brent Murphy, general manager of the authorised Suzuki distributor for the Caribbean region, explained that "Suzuki's new model plan started with the 2012 Swift, which has been a great success for the brand, and continued with the 2013 Grand Vitara". Murphy also noted that Jamaica will see the introduction of an exciting new crossover sometime next year.

- How will warranties be serviced if all the dealers are closed?
- Are replacement parts going to be really expensive now?

My first thought was how lucky Shadow was with the timing

I don't just feel Lucky.............I feel Blessed!
I got rid of my SX4 in the nick of time. And, I got the full book price for it.
Nothing extra, but at least I got Book.

I put a trailer hitch on my Soul this morning and then proceeded to drag my road. By just dropping the air pressure in the front tires, it did as good a job as the SX4.

My trade has been nothing but a huge plus for me.

Thanks guys, for letting me beat my chest a little bit.

Cheers Mates!
