Suzuki Jimny Reviews

Reading a Suzuki Jimny review is a bit like having to get bad news about those we love, such as:

  • School Reports.
  • Medical diagnoses.
  • Band break-ups.
  • Expensive new mud tires don't fit under the guards.

It can all be too hard to digest.
But you can't run from the truth, for that is the path of later disappointment, despair and angst.

So in the interests of having a well-rounded view, we have tried to dig up all the Suzuki Jimny reviews that are currently floating around. Brace yourself! Some are quite unkind.
In general, the reviews fall into three categories:

  • Haters
  • Lovers
  • Hypnotised by the Jimny mojo (wanted to hate, but couldn't)

A most interesting aspect of the Hater reviews, is the amount of comments and replies that rush to Jimny's defence. Nobody likes to see Jimny get picked on...that's mojo for you!

You may agree with any of the reviews or not, but let us know with a rant or an opinion of your own what you think.
Or if you find one, feel free to post it.

And remember, just like your pets or children, nobody will love your Jimny as much as you!

A Note On The Reviews
All of our review pages have links to the original articles and we include a little summary of the article.
In every 'review-of-a-review' (r-o-a-r!) we present, you are getting our opinion of the review, other visitors opinions in comments, as well as an idea about the original review, and a link to the review to read more.
We are trying to add value to the original information.
These r-o-a-rs(!) use some text of the original articles as "fair use" for the purpose of discussion/education about the reviews, especially as there are 'groups' of reviews (haters, lovers, mojo-mesmerised) The brief descriptions and the titles of the pages mean you can choose what information you want to read about the Jimny.
We chose to present reviews this way because we thought it looked less spammy than a bunch of links to other sites with no description of what you were in for.
We hope you enjoy reading!
