Unhappy What I don't like about my Carry / Every . . .

I know everybody loves their Carry/Every, but there might be other
times when we feel "unhappy" about it, esp. when it involves cost,
repairs, leaks, overheat, dead engine, etc.

I'll start with mine. . .

1) Since it's surplus from Japan, we don't know how the 1st owner
used this vehicle. Did he constantly check the fluids (oil,coolant)?
Did he change oil accordingly? Did the engine overheat? Did he check
the extent of damage (cyl.head, gasket, etc.)? Did he drive to the
RPM limit? Did he abuse the engine? etc.

2) I noticed for a few times only that some people look up to a "car"
i mean a real car over our Carry/Every. They would greet you with
a smile if you ride an SUV or a new car, but with our Zuki, they're
not as "enthusiastic". Is there some form of vehicle discrimination???

...mainit kapag matagal ang byahe ko lalo na underneath the driverset ang engine at radiator.
...manipis ang body ng zuki, very dangerous during head to head collision.
...limited ang pansenger seat,lalo na sa pick-up na zuki's

tama ka diyan, I forgot to mention that one. maybe that's why the
newer versions have the protruding "nose" for additional safety.
(new Japanese regulation?). Plus no air bags, side impact beam,
that's why we should drive defensively, safely, for the sake of our
loved ones, our family.

Major issues with our zuks
1. Parts
2. Stability
3. Safety
4. Power

I guess we all learned to love our zuki vans.
There's no discrimination it just doesnt appeal
to most people as a chickmagnet ride like most van type
vehicles, well it depends how you dress up or
carry your zuk. Our zuks are for people who had
practicality in mind. It has the size of a car
but the cargo space of a van.

I'll have to admit I would prefer a new sedan or SUV
type of vehicle who doesn't, but I would rather have
a zuki than a bulky van or nothing at all hehe.

*Our mini vans are much more nicer to pimp
than our huge counter part vans.

What i don't like about my Zuki van is the heat coming from the engine. My Carry van is a front engine and it has no more insulation underneath the seats. I am saving for a good car insulation to minimize the heat.
  • 4 speed lang sya at wala kang mabiling turbo.
  • Hindi pa sya fuel injected.
  • Delikado sa frontal collision (Hindi ba pareho din lang sa L300?)
  • Stability at Cornering
  • Yes, meron din discrimination for small vehicles especially for those ill-mannered drivers who don't know the driving regulations and safety practices.
  • Alternator, mababa yung nakakabit na 45 amp
  • Aircon is not that cold.( maybe because of the missing insulation)
  • Electrical wiring lalo na kung 2nd hand.
Other than that I still love my Carry for it's simplicity, practicality, low maintenance, cargo space, fun to drive and it's two sliding door. Chick magnet? Pwede syang chick magnet depending on how you set-up your ride. Sa kin Kids magnet! Kids want to ride and touch my van. Akala nila Cartoon character or ride sa isang carnival. Buti high roof sya kung hindi naayat na ito!

The new 3 cyclinder VVti ng Suzuki with turbo ang nasa wish list ko.

my idea of like and not like is really ironic...

what I don't like about it, is that because its small
what I DO like about it, is also because its small...

Yes, "learned to love" is an understatement, hehehe

I agree with you, zuks are for "practical" people,
in layman's term "nagtitipid" hehe, just kidding, or better else,
making the most out of your money. It can accommodate same
or even more people than a car, but you can put more cargo on it
than a car.

Me too! Honestly, if I have more than enough money, I would
buy an SUV for my family & a sportscar or muscle car for myself.
But this is only a dream, LOL!

We all love our zukis, that includes all their imperfections & the joy
they give to our lives, nyaks!!
