Anyone here have a Jimny with an automatic gearbox?
I'm wondering how it performes, both on and off road and in cold weather. I'm not looking for a sports car that can outrun the cops, but since most of my driving is situated in between red lights within the city, a bit of oomph isn't too bad
And, regardless of transmission, how does it handle in slippery conditions? It has a rather narrow wheelbase, is it prone to making 180° turns on it's own, with the 4WD engaged?
Another question, I test drove a used manual 'box Jimny about two months ago and the clutch was very, very stiff. I'm talking more stiff than the clutch of a rusty Massey Ferguson tractor. Is that normal, or has driving the Yaris for three years turned me into a wimp?
Yet another question:
After looking at some threads here I notice a lot of people seem to have problems with the steering wheel shuddering. Is this common in the Jimny? If so, the Jimny sounds kind of unsafe
Oh.. one more question.. Am I over thinking stuff when I should be out buying a Jimny?
