    AWD is useful even when the road is wet and slippery specially during down pouring. Vehicle feels stable and planted. this is a First hand experienced on Vitara AWD.

    Suzuki Vitara 2019 SZT

    Superb writeup. Compared To mine and as your input. it’s a completely different class of vehicle than previous generation of Grand Vitara / Escudo.

    New Defender Design??

    For me this is Too much sensors to fail. i like the simplicity of the Old Animal. not this Computer gizmodo. love the new Jimny Siera, oh well they thought other wise with the New Vitara, which doesn't even related to old Mule. Sad!.

    True, found out that Toyota T-IV ATF is nothing other than re-branded Mobil 3309. and Valvoline Zerex Asian Vehicle Coolant is the supplier of Toyota Pink SLLC (Super Long Life Coolant).
  6. Im not sure on this part since Brand New status can be stated in the CR for cars which got down by Authorized Agents (Unless this is imported by A*W). for parts, why don't you check with Wijerama area Part dealers (Few calls would do). i believe its the same engine (K Series Boosterjet) which shared among Baleno, Swift and Vitara. so apart from Body parts, i dont think it would be much of an issue for Running gear. by the way, is this is a AWD Model? for that Price, it's well worth it.

    Just Curios, can the R12 Based Compressor will be able to handle R134 Gas?

    Brake system failure

    It's Not ABS System Resetting (Resetting and ABS Auto Bleeding is 2 Different Things). it's called "ABS System Auto Bleed". only Advanced Scanners (Launch Creed or OEM Scanners) would support this feature. General Scanning would not detect Air in the ABS Unit.

    Have you Done the ABS unit bleeding using a scanner? i strongly advise do a better diagnostic before throwing cash to replace parts blindly.

    Is the Grand Vitara worth it?

    Interesting, i don't see any issues if the conversion is done properly.

    Is the Grand Vitara worth it?

    Hmm, isn't R2 is from Mazda? i know some times Manufactures use, different Manufactures engines for Diesel Variants, for example 3rd Gen Vitara uses Renault F9Q Engine in Diesel Variant. but check whether 1st Gen Vitara uses Suzuki Diesel or something else.

    Brake system failure

    Adding to what Davey said, there's a Method to get rid of the Air in ABS Module using a scanner called "Auto Air Bleeding ABS Module". this will require a fully fledged scanner like launch creed or you might need to consult the the Agents. below link contains how it has been done. once this is done, air trapped inside the Module will enter the brake lines and you should follow the normal bleeding process (Pedal Pump or Vacuum Machine method) to get rid of the trapped air in the lines. you can do this in manual way by Slamming the brakes on a gravel road or ground (where there's no traffic) to activate the ABS and activate all the solenoids in the ABS module, but doubt the success.

    CHR 1200cc colombo city Fuel consumption per liter

    I'm getting the similar figures (6.5-7.0 kml) on my Vitara which is a 2.0L AWD on similar route (Wijerama - Dematagoda OrionCity). i thought it was a gas guzzler. 😸
