    I have a long wheel base 20ltr td.

    I was thinking of selling it until it sailed through its MOT.

    great wee trucks and not to bad on fuel. I'm getting 40 mpg on a run and with a old set of at tyres its going all over the place with no issues.

    I have been using vits for the past 10 years and find them great wee trucks.

    I hope you find one.

    Got one now and would have another in a heart beat.
    Brilliant little motors.
    Maybe the only drawback? Could do with a bit more ground clearance.

    2" lift kit works wonders, did it on my old one but not this one, running 235/70/16s seems to work ok and not got stuck yet !

    hope you are well.

    Fantastic vehicles
    Regret selling mine
    If I were you I would get a petrol as there are almost silent when running.
    For my sins I've got a Land Rover which is ***** so I've left it outside to rot!

    If you have good tyres and the right driver you will get even the 1.6 petrol engine out of the dirt, with the TDI engine you have a shoot more torque but the engine is a tad bigger in the weight department,but still very capable of going places that you think are a bit to much for a vitara......no way they will go many places with little or no problems,

    I have the 20 lt turbo diesel 5 door and it's great for what I need, but now my boss is planning to get me a newer one I'll be selling mine soon, that will keep the wife happy as I was promised a company vehicle some 3 years ago but it's taken a wee while to get here I'm still happy....no bills
