Default Finding a Suzuki jeep in Canada?

Hiya, i'm over in Canada for a little less than a year and want to buy myself a little 4x4 to drive around in (and do a little off-roading on my familys farm land)

I'm having trouble finding any for sale in Ontario...is there a special place where they are all hiding?! Ebay is crap in Canada, everything seems to be in the U.S!

I would imagine you can't find any because they are all rusted out in that region assuming you want an older one. There are a handful of areas that hold wet and salty water and rot out fast and most shitheads don't seem to look after that so you get rot. If you do manage to find one be sure to check ALL of the cab mounts and frame cross members especially the one right by the gas tank.

Suzuki jeeps are hard to find and not cheap in Canada. I found you can have a Jimny shipped to Vancouver from Japan for $4,000 to $10,000 for a used one, and about $20,000 for a new one (if you don't mind right hand drive). That's with shipping included.

What everyone else said - including this:

There is no such thing as a Suzuki Jeep.

Jeep (and "jeep") is a registered trademark of Chrysler-Fiat.

What you are looking for is a Suzuki 4WD vehicle. Or a Sidekick, Geo Tracker or Vitara.

Sellers and owners will look at you funny if you use the words "Suzuki" and "Jeep" or "jeep" next to each other in a spoken (or written) sentence.

Just sayin'...


I hope that this helps!

Everyone knows jeep is a brand name, however before the term S.U.V. was coined, every off road passenger vehicle was reffered to as a jeep, and in many countrys still is. When I was growing up we had a land rover, then a scout II, then a bronco. We called them all jeeps. Sorry if it bothers you but I am still going to call it that.
