My 2000 is almost desintegrating as I go...so it will be gone soon. Have problem finding a suitable replacement. I had thought of a 2011 Grand Vitara...4 cyl...NOrth-south engine, main traction from the rear, 2wd, 4wd, HI-Lo and lock transfer case, all these features I wanted. But the sideways back door ..and on the wrong side (Japan drives on the left...) is a nuisance: I use to run the sporty with rear hatch opened with long loads...no way with a sideway door....
I keep looking....
