A year of Jimny ownership was created by Daytona
Actually more like a year and seven weeks now! Anyway, here's a quick summary of a first year.
So what's gone wrong with it? Very little! The one way valve on the rear window washer failed and was eventually replaced under warranty by the dealer. The engine management light came on but cleaning the sensor and ensuring the connectors were tight sorted that. Just recently I put new seals on the front swivel hubs. And the battery failed! So for a nine year old car it's very impressive.
On the road it's fun to drive and the ride isn't too bouncy if a bit of care is taken. We've had a few trips to Manchester (180mile round trip) and one to the NEC (350mile round trip).
However, the bad weather over the two last winters really has shown the car in its best light. All the reasons my wife had for chosing one have helped, good visibility, good traction, easy to drive, small size and light weight have been bonuses when the weather closes in.
She still loves it and we still get a buzz whenever we go out in it. Brilliant.
