My life changed this morning when I discovered for the first time that a brilliant two-stroke, 4x4 Kei Car is actually available on America’s very own Craigslist. It’s called the Suzuki Jimny LJ20, and I’ve found multiple examples online that I’m having a hard time resisting. Please help?
Back to work on Monday and not a holiday in sight? No problem. Get out there and drive like a champion anyway.
Don’t just throw some cell phone pics on Craigslist and call it good. What you need is action, drama and possibly a, well, I don’t want to spoil it.
The Suzuki Mighty Boy is a teeny-tiny pickup made for Japan’s super-small Kei class of cars. What do you get when you swap an LS V8 engine into one? Burnouts! Burnouts for days.
I went to The One Motorcycle Show in Portland over this past weekend so you didn’t have to. Actually, you should have, because it was awesome. More than 120 bikes on were on display, ranging from the pristine to bizarre. Plus, lots of beer and food, live music and more stickers than you could possibly use.
If you want to buy a car from a company that actually, genuinely seems to give a damn about you, then I think Suzuki may have just proved themselves to be worthy of your business. I say this because it appears that Suzuki has issued a recall for a minor issue affecting some of their 1996 Cappuccino roadsters. And by…
A big truck gets stuck only to be rescued a mighty (and most-certainly modified) Suzuki Samurai. It makes sense. The mini-SUV is just following the Samurai code.
Choosing the right motorcycle is more of an emotional decision than a logical one. With cars, most of us would love to buy with our hearts instead of our spreadsheets, but concessions have to be made. You might need to carry passengers, to tow and haul, to get good fuel economy, or any other reason why you can’t…
The 1988 Suzuki Cervo was the first production car in the world with electric power steering, or EPS, a system developed by Japanese auto supplier Koyo (now JTEKT). The new system was more efficient than traditional hydraulic pump-driven systems that were prominent at the time, and today, almost all new small cars…

Lot of neat cars at the Paris Motor Show this year, but I’m like “That Suzuki Cervo though...” Give me the rear-engined kei car!
“Cute.” “Awesome.” “Practical.” “So tiny!” These are the things I hear regularly when people describe Kei-cars, the minicars sold almost exclusively in Japan. Their funky designs, so different from what people outside of the country are used to, generate lots of love and envy among gearheads around the globe. But…
Suzuki Samurais are not only lightweight, but they’re tough as nails, and have the approach, departure and breakover angles to climb and crest even the gnarliest hills. But most importantly, they’re small. Really small.
Remember that time Suzuki threw a GSX-R engine into a lightweight concept roadster? That would have been fun.
You may know that the El Camino style car-with-truck-bed (“ute”) is the unofficial national vehicle of Australia. It’s common to see Ford and GM variants dialed in for huge performance. It’s not common to see a Suzuki Mighty Boy at all, let alone one this... angry.

If seeing that a vehicle has a zero-star safety rating isn’t enough to frighten a person out of his or her mind, seeing said vehicle in a wreck probably is. Five cars designed for India—which has minimal safety requirements for vehicles—just received that number in crash testing, and videos from the test show why.
It’s Friday! Prepare for your grand escape!
After a suspect in a police chase damaged a fellow motorist’s motorcycle while attempting to steal it, Kawasaki arranged to have a brand-new bike sent to the rider. The bike isn’t the same brand as his old one and took some street fighting with a police suspect in order to get it, but hey—a free bike is a free bike,…
