Hi all,

Just a quick question... should a piston on a 3-4 year old jimny o2, which has been regularly dealer serviced, just suddenly disintegrate?

I was just wondering if this was a known problem and to get an idea how long this part should really last?

Many thanks,

Laurence

Simple answer is no. How many miles has it done and in what way did it fail?

Thanks for replying... well its done about 60k or so, started off with an occaisional tinkling noise, then after a few days it suddenly got louder, about 10 minutes after that it was properly clanking and then the engine just died. No warning lights at all.

The dealer its been regularly serviced with said it needs a whole new engine and at £1,500 to £4,000 for a car that's only just out of waranty, i'm a little miffed.

I suppose the real question is... will suziki do anything about it?

Cheers,
Laurence
