We're just running a standard 2wd SZ-T 1.6 petrol. The Wife wanted a turquoise blue colour and so I found her one, luckily at one of the four local Suzuki dealerships we have near us, all within 20 miles of where we live, so servicing etc, no issue. The car had only ever been owned by Suzuki and when we picked it up, had just 4700 miles on it. It was also a really good price after some rather skilful negotiation on my part. It has now done just over 6k and we're very happy with it. We've had a brake light bulb blow and a fuse blow which caused the rear lights and number plate lights to stop working , but since replacement, we've had no further issues. I bought a diagnostic code reader and plugged it into the OBD2 port, no errors or stored codes. If there had been, it would have been straight back to the dealership.My midlife crisis. I bought a Daihatsu Copen last year and sorted it completely but the MX-5 is a much more sorted car, particularly with the folding hardtop.
Which Vitara are you running ?
I'm going to have one of the wheels off this weekend just to mount the space saver to make sure it sits ok on the hub. I'm not going to drive it anywhere! It will also give me the opportunity to check the disc retaining bolts. These usually are made of cheese and the heads have a habit of sheering off when you come to change the discs. I usually swap them out for stainless steel allen key head bolt screws to prevent any seizing issues come disc and pad changes which I always do myself. I've just bought a brand new pair of genuine Suzuki front discs off the famous auction site, from a dealer selling off stock, £35 for the pair. I don't need them, they will just sit in my garage until the time comes for me to change them.
