The Suzuki Samurai (Jimny) was a compact off-roader with a BIG 4x4 punch! What kicked off as one of the most revolutionary all-terrain vehicles, even outselling the Jeep Wrangler two to one in 1987, ended with an unbelievable fraudulent crash lawsuit that killed Suzuki's automotive American dreams. Sharpen your katanas because host James Pumphrey is about to take a stab at one of Suzuki's greatest creations.

OMG... I didn't know how "Consumer Union" tweaked and manipulated result. I have used Consumer Report to get some ideas before purchasing new/used cars, but I completely lost trust in them from now on. It takes years to build trust, but it's so easy to loose it... However, it's great to know that honest people like you & your team do exist to reveal the truth behind it. Thank you!

If you can't beat them, make fake news and take it out from competition. This car is a legend and there are many suzuki gypsy in my country that are still used by civilian. It can go anywhere, do anything. Hell, it can climb a tree if you wanted it to.🤣😂 You can beat the shit out of this car, it will shrug it off like nothing. It's indestructible.

My first car was actually a Samurai. It was a fun little car! Distressingly underpowered, though... it could barely get up to highway speed, and couldn't get there with any kind of headwind or positive grade. The result was an upside-down gas mileage! I used to get about 36 in town, and about 14 on the highway, 'cause it was floored the entire time, lol. If I got a tailwind, or went down a hill and could get up to 70 or 75, it was good times! Actually...

We bought my son a used 2007 Suzuki SX4 for Christmas 9 years ago so he could drive back and forth to high school. Little 4-banger for good mileage and all wheel drive which is great here in Colorado. He has since graduated from college, makes good money, but keeps driving the SX4. Its simple and basic but its cheap to run, cheap to fix, gets him through the snow, and is very reliable. And, sadly, stopped import in 2013 and likely suffered the side effects of the Samarai Smear.

"Why were they good at off roading?" They only weighed 2,050 pounds. ( 600 pounds less than a Jeep CJ) They don't sink as deep into sand and mud as they head down the trail so they dont get stuck as often , and when they do get stuck they are easier to pull out.

In 1986, my Dad bought a new SJ410 (same as Samurai) here in the UK and exported it to Burma, where he was working. When he brought it back to the UK in 1988, he gave it to me. It was a great little vehicle, but I did have a nasty moment at 70mph on the motorway when I had to swerve to avoid a lump of metal that fell off an articulated lorry in front of me. It was difficult to regain control. I'm sure today it wouldn't be an issue as cars have very effective stability control systems.

My oldest brothers best friend lived with us for quite some time and we got him a little geo tracker (he also had a geoetro that was just a boss little gas saver) the tracker was a hard top and we only had one issue with tipping when we put it on the side of an extremely steep Hill, all it did was lift the front wheel slightly. He loved his little mini jeep but sadly, living in pennsylvania and him using it in the winter made it rust to the point where it was unrepairable.. he had it for a few years and honestly it was fairly capable for its size. Now we have quite a few subarus and I'd love to get a samurai for a fun little summer vehicle

@A-Team Off-Road well Berliner in one context can of course mean someone living in berlin or being from there. So now strap in: Berliner is something similar to a donut but seperate. In Berlin people call them "Pfannkuchen". But elsewhere its also referred to as Kreppel or Krapfen. But krapfen in Bavaria is something very different than in the rhineland Pfannkuchen in the rest of Germany means pancake but Berliners call pancakes eierkuchen. Basically it boils down to, you will not talk to somebody about pastry outside your home region without having an hour of discussion about what something is called. if you feel like reading a translation of something about language (it probably wont work out well) this article might be for you anneschuessler.com/2014/01/12/anne-erklart-geback-berliner-pfannkuchen-krapfen-und-so/#:~:text=Wir%20lernen%20also%3A%20Pfannkuchen%20hei%C3%9Fen,was%20in%20Bayern%20Krapfen%20hei%C3%9Ft.

“ *Those who are capable of tyranny are capable of perjury to sustain it* .” “... *only those who have the will and the power to shoot down their fellow men, are the real rulers in this, as in all other (so-called) civilized countries; for by no others will civilized men be robbed, or enslaved* .” ― Lysander Spooner, No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority *"So these villains, who call themselves governments, well understand that their power rests primarily upon stolen money* . *With money they can hire soldiers, and with soldiers extort money* . *And, when their authority is denied, the first use they always make of money, is to hire soldiers to kill or subdue all who refuse them more money* ." *-The payment of taxes, being compulsory, of course furnishes no evidence that any one voluntarily supports the Constitution* . *It is true that the theory of our Constitution is, that all taxes are paid voluntarily; that our government is a mutual insurance company, voluntarily entered into by the people with each other; that each man makes a free and purely voluntary contract with all others who are parties to the Constitution, to pay so much money for so much protection, the same as he does with any other insurance company; and that he is just as free not to be protected, and not to pay any tax, as he is to pay a tax, and be protected* . *But this theory of our government is wholly different from the practical fact* . *The fact is that the government, like a highwayman, says to a man: Your money, or your life* . *And many, if not most, taxes are paid under the compulsion of that threat* ;. *The government does not, indeed, waylay a man in a lonely place, spring upon him from the road side, and, holding a pistol to his head, proceed to rifle his pockets* . *But the robbery is none the less a robbery on that account; and it is far more dastardly and shameful* . *The highwayman takes solely upon himself the responsibility, danger, and crime of his own act* . *He does not pretend that he has any rightful claim to your money, or that he intends to use it for your own benefit* . *He does not pretend to be anything but a robber* . *He has not acquired impudence enough to profess to be merely a “protector,” and that he takes men’s money against their will, merely to enable him to “protect” those infatuated travellers, who feel perfectly able to protect themselves, or do not appreciate his peculiar system of protection* . *He is too sensible a man to make such professions as these* . *Furthermore, having taken your money, he leaves you, as you wish him to do* . *He does not persist in following you on the road, against your will; assuming to be your rightful “sovereign,” on account of the “protection” he affords you* . *He does not keep “protecting” you, by commanding you to bow down and serve him; by requiring you to do this, and forbidding you to do that; by robbing you of more money as often as he finds it for his interest or pleasure to do so; and by branding you as a rebel, a traitor, and an enemy to your country, and shooting you down without mercy, if you dispute his authority, or resist his demands* . *He is too much of a gentleman to be guilty of such impostures, and insults, and villanies as these* . *In short, he does not, in addition to robbing you, attempt to make you either his dupe or his slave* . *The proceedings of those robbers and murderers, who call themselves “the government,” are directly the opposite of these of the single highwayman* . *In the first place, they do not, like him, make themselves individually known; or, consequently, take upon themselves personally the responsibility of their acts* . *On the contrary, they secretly (by secret ballot) designate some one of their number to commit the robbery in their behalf, while they keep themselves practically concealed* . *They say to the person thus designated:* *Go to A- B-, and say to him that “the government” has need of money to meet the expenses of protecting him and his property* . *If he presumes to say that he has never contracted with us to protect him, and that he wants none of our protection, say to him that that is our business, and not his; that we choose to protect him, whether he desires us to do so or not; and that we demand pay, too, for protecting him* . *If he dares to inquire who the individuals are, who have thus taken upon themselves the title of “the government,” and who assume to protect him, and demand payment of him, without his having ever made any contract with them, say to him that that, too, is our business, and not his; that we do not choose to make ourselves individually known to him; that we have secretly (by secret ballot) appointed you our agent to give him notice of our demands, and, if he complies with them, to give him, in our name, a receipt that will protect him against any similar demand for the present year* . *If he refuses to comply, seize and sell enough of his property to pay not only our demands, but all your own expenses and trouble beside* . *If he resists the seizure of his property, call upon the bystanders to help you (doubtless some of them will prove to be members of our band)* . *If, in defending his property, he should kill any of our band who are assisting you, capture him at all hazards; charge him (in one of our courts) with murder, convict him, and hang him* . *If he should call upon his neighbors, or any others who, like him, may be disposed to resist our demands, and they should come in large numbers to his assistance, cry out that they are all rebels and traitors; that “our country” is in danger; call upon the commander of our hired murderers; tell him to quell the rebellion and “save the country,” cost what it may* . *Tell him to kill all who resist, though they should be hundreds of thousands; and thus strike terror into all others similarly disposed* . *See that the work of murder is thoroughly done, that we may have no further trouble of this kind hereafter* . *When these traitors shall have thus been taught our strength and our determination, they will be good loyal citizens for many years, and pay their taxes without a why or a wherefore* . *It is under such compulsion as this that taxes, so called, are paid* . *And how much proof the payment of taxes affords, that the people consent to support “the government,” it needs no further argument to show* . *Lysander Spooner (1870)*

They flirted with the idea of Jimny's as patrol vehicles in Australia in the late 2000 early 2010's. They were woeful. I could get it up on one wheel just doing a reverse three pointer. It did handle some pretty steep inclines, but it felt like it was going to roll backwards and kill us all. Not that ... that was an official test or even something anyone knew we did in it. The only upside was I could park it in a service lift and get it to the third floor of a building to fsck with the day shift. Anywhere that meets disabled access requirements you can get a Jimny basically. :P

I remember sitting in Samuri back in the day and instantly realizing I could tip this over. Did the same with a CJ-5 and a Land Rover. So what I just drove them within their operating rang and never had a problem. If you did not drive well enough to not tip the over don't blame the vehicle. With a set of reasonably sticky tires a Corvair Monza could corner very well and were surprisingly fast for 1967.

Interesting, you're a fast talker but this is a bullshit take on the Jimny. I've been in a rollover in one at low speed 40km/h all you need to do is pull the wheel hard and turn on an off camber road with a bump in it, and it will launch so hard off the wheels it will land on its roof before the side hits the ground. The wheels are so flimsy if in the Australian version that if a grown man kicks them while the thing is on its side, you will literally bend the wheel. I knew of 3 separate people that rolled these vehicles. 3 out of 3 Jimnys my friends owned none survived being driven in town by teenagers.. well one rolled outside town in a flat paddock. The roofs of these vehicles just collapse to the floor in the 2 seat utility models when they roll BTW. The town I grew up in had a Jimny/Samurai wreckers in it for 10 year or so. Every single one of their 50 odd vehicles came from my area and they all had silver sides (from sliding on tarmac) and/or collapsed roofs from rollovers. If you think they are appreciably safe, get in a stock one and turn hard off camber at 45km/h, see what happens! I dare you to try it. Also please record it so we can all watch! Never heard of some consumer group saying these were unsafe but everyone who owned them knew they were unsafe as they have all been in rollovers, and the rollovers are fast, violent, unexpected, and hurt when you land.
