What makes a good looking Jimny? At the picture section I've tried to show some of the better looking ones.
At the forum you'll find a web page showing how to get the EZ-Locker in your car.
For some of the Swedish visitors technical English is hard to learn. Therefore the Forum's enhanced with a Swedish language section by this date.
The picture section is groving. More is added.
The forum is up and running again. Thanks to my friend Roger! :-)
Yesterday I uppdated the forum to the latest phpBB version. And after that it won't work. I'll look in to it tomorrow.
New pictures added. Take a look at the future Jimny!
In the forum you'll find a link to a page that tells some about what the engine oil does in your car.
Now the site has been here for more than a month. And at this date we are more then 40 members registered in the forum. Some are more active then others. That was expected.
Time will show how the site and forum develops. Under any circumstances the site will be around.
At Technical Info there's new info added.
The site starts in september 2005.
Searching the web for Jimnysites gave allmost nothing in return. Sites dedicated to Jimny only are reare. Far to reare.
There are other sites but they are for the guys who drive offroad for real. I'm just doing that by accident.
What better to do to start one of my own then?
Technical Information at
At the 08/09/2005, I got a phonecall from the technical manager at Suzuki Sweden. He didn't appriciate that the Jimny and Samurai Service Manuals where found here. Then he gave me a hint that it might be illegal too. So, sorry guys, but when it comes to legal talk I'll back off. Therefore you will not find the manuals here anymore, they are gone fore god.
But it can hardly be illegal to tell you where I found them. More info in this sencetive topic is found inside the Forum in the Tips and Trix section.

I've had some overheating problems in my Suzuki Jimny. It's a 2000 year model with 1,3 liter SOHC engine and automatic transmission.
At the Forum's Tips & Trix section you'll find a description of the problems, the causes and the solutions. For some of you this is old news I'll believe, for some it might not be. Anyway, there you'll find my experiences.

The Jimny is built on a frame, just like a truck or a lorry. One of the benefit building this way is a very stabile car and body. A frame wont twist or bend.
Here's the measurements of your car:
The name's Boris Ekner, born in the beginning of the 1960's. Single with a small pile of kids.
I'm the kind of guy that fix my car on my own. It started in the early years mending fathers alarmclock - it never got the same again... Hahaha!
Then it was bicycles, motorcycles, military jets and now it's cars.
Over the years it's been complete engines, suspention, exaust, electrical and so on. So far I've never failed...
I'm not realy a 4x4 entusiast, I just like the Jimny as it is - allmost - and use it as a tool in my profession distributing morningpapers i Stockholm Sweden. I've driven the Jimny for several years and more than 260'000 km's now and are very happy with it.
It's small, easy to handle and fulfills my purpose.
...and here's a picture of your's truly.
