An old friend back

Post by Alboy » Sun Apr 25, 2021 4:17 pm

Hello everyone,

30 years ago I bought a brand new Vitara JX long wheelbase. It's 1.6 engine managed at best around 26 mpg. However, it was a great car we loved it to bits until we sadly exchaged it for something more 'suitable'. Then 6 months ago after a few boring cars in between, I bought a new Vitara 1.4 Boosterjet SZ5. It's like having an old friend sitting in the drive.

Alan.

Hi max,
Yep, still loving it. :lol:
I've always liked the changing Vitara designs over the years.
Getting about 48 mpg(manual) as I seem to be doing longer journeys recently. :doublethumbs:
Cheers,
Alan.
