Between the payments and the insurance, I don't have a lot left for add-ons, but I did get the windows tinted and a red stripe most of the way around the body. It really looks great on the light blue paint.
I've recently added the rear Skid Plate, from Primitive Racing and a U-Haul Trailer Hitch.
I live out in the sand dunes in Central Florida, and so far I've not seen any obstacles I could not overcome, with my SX4.
When I put it in 4WD Lock and turn off the ISP, it pulls harder and with better traction than my 2000 Grand Vitara.
Traction can be doubled, by just dropping the air pressure in all four tires to 25#. I used to do that in the winter, up north, to get through deep snow, with standard street tires.
I'd like some of those deep tread grabbers, but at the speeds I have to drive on the interstate, (80 + ) those tires would howl like a banshee.
I do love to hear what other drivers are doing with their little SX4's.
I'm just wondering what kind of gas mileage y'all are getting?
My best so far, is 27.6 on a 100 mile road trip.
Not too bad for a 4WD vehicle.
