Question No Model Specific Section for X-90s? :-(

I'm sad.

This is such a GREAT site ---- but there's no model specific section for X-90s.

How come?

Us X-90ers would like to have some recognition, too.

We wanna feel like we belong.

Yeah, what's up with that? I just bought my 10th Zuki and it's an X-90. Reckon there just ain't enough of us to make a Model Specifc area.

Yeah ---- in the poll (as of this writing), there were 9 who said they drive a Verona and 8 who said they drive an X-90 ---- and there is a MODEL SPECIFIC section for the Verona but not for the X-90.

I can respond to this in two ways - the first being that there are more Veronas than X90s and so they have their own section.

However - the real answer is going to lie in the fact that under the skin, the X90 is a two door Vitara - if you have the owner's manual, you'd have noticed that one manual covers the entire range - anything you find mechanical related in the Vitara section applies to the X90.

Forums don't work well with "limited numbers" so that X90 owners are going to be better served by grouping them with the Vitara owners.

As far as I know, the Verona can not be "twinned" with any other model, and so has to have it's own section.

I understand that answer. Most folks tell me they have never seen an X -90 when they see mine. Even my tire dealer, and Dwayne sees a lot of vehicles.

However, worldwide there are lots of X-90s.

I understand combining models. My owners manual calls it a Sidekick X-90. I tell folks it is a Tracker under the sheet metal. My shop manual covers everything from Samurai to X-90.

However, I see several models on the left column that should be combined under that logic. Some with their model specific section on that list are identical vehicles, only a name change.

There's even a section for that new big car. One thing I do not want from Suzuki is a big anything. I don't want a Zuki Cadillac or Suburban.

One more question someone may be able to answer. How do I find exactly what the U.S. government classified the X-90 as -- truck or car. I call it a truck, since it's a small SUV on a Sidekick frame. It matters because I'm having the windows tinted and there are different standards for cars and trucks. Robin will fail my vehicles in a second if they ain't right. She's calling it a car.

I wouldn't agree with that.

I live in the caribbean where Suzukis are often used by the rental car companies - they're very popular with the tourists - and I have never seen a X90 in any of the islands, I've never seen one in the US, and in fact, I have only seen one ever - at a local government auction lot - seems someone brought it out of the US and had problems paying the import duties & taxes.

You could also take a look at the wikipedia entry on the X90 - not that wikipedia should be considered as authoritative, but the car was just not that big a seller compared to the other Suzuki models.

Hey I forgot I was gonna reply to this in the other message. A lot of X-90s or anything is relative. Yeah, they are rare. Less than 8,000 possibly sold in US. My daughter has been driving it this week, her Tracker gettin tranny rebuild. She has noticed the stares and questions. Questions from guys who say they know Zuks. I like, "Is that a new electric car."

Our little Southern town has a lot of Samurais. I have six. I drove my 1986 today, last few days. Saw four more driving around town today. Lots of Trackers and Kicks too.

Yeah, lots of folks know them from the islands. Around here it is the Hispanics who often ask me if the Sami is for sale. We have a large Central American population. Lots of Zuks down there. Guys buy Trackers here and ship to Central America.
