2000 Swift with 38000 km = 24k miles

Still more barely driven Suzukiclones coming out of the woodwork!


2000 Swift with 38000 km = 24k miles, $2200 Again the wrong engine and trans, though!

'95 Firefly 1.0 / 5-spd, 51k km = 32k miles



Yay, this one has the correct drivetrain!

wrong drivetrain, but still impressive

One owner! Literally a little old lady - selling because she's moving to a nursing home.





1999 Firefly. Just 94,000 km (58k miles).


AND IT'S THE SPORT MODEL!


Which seems contradictory, considering it has the wrong transmission, sadly.


Asking $2200

'93 with 77k km = 48k miles







$1500 asking price... but wrong transmission! Sadness!


Who drives just ~1800 miles a year?

If I didn't work out of town, and drive 50 miles to get groceries (yes it pays off, several times over) I doubt I would do more than that. Other than go to work and go get groceries all I ever do is get to church twice a week, otherwise I stay home.

Motorhome dinghy Metro 3/5

$500!




1994 5-speed with 235k km / 146k miles on the clock would seem to disqualify it from this "low miles" thread, BUT... the tow bar attachment indicates it was used as a dinghy behind an RV. So unless they disconnected the speedo cable while towing, the engine & related bits have a lot less kms than that.

It looks like original paint, too, with groovy 90's decals intact! And there's a telltale sign of rust-proofing (oil creeping up from the bottom of the door).

And as a dinghy, it probably spent its winters in the sunny south - yet another explanation for the lack of rust.

Very tempting. It's a bit too far outside my beater radius though, otherwise I'd be going to look at this one ASAP.

No link to the ad, where is it? I also think you mean a 1994, not 2004.

^ Ha! You read me like a book. I did in fact contact the owner.

Location is near Belleville/Trenton, Ontario.

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/...ale/1467269812

And correct, it's a '94.

I got confirmation it was towed behind an RV for about 15 years, up to last year. Assuming it was flat-towed to Florida, all four wheels on the ground, the odometer has at least an "extra" 60,000 km / 40k miles that aren't on the engine. There's also a chance it was bought as a dinghy from a previous RV owner.

That's also 15 years of not being exposed to road salt, which is the only reason it still exists in this part of the world.

I asked for more photos - esp. of the underbody / control arm mounts. If they come through OK, I may go look at it.

They just cancelled the insurance last week because one of the brake lines sprung a leak, so it's clearly not as MINTY underneath as the outer paint colour indicates.

ASS-U-ME

So... it wasn't a southern dinghy (that was my assumption).


The owner towed it during summer road trips in Canada. So the rust/odometer question is a bit more up in the air. Still awaiting underbody pics.

barely used

This one, on the other hand, was hardly driven:





'94 with 61k km = 38k miles. Wrong transmission, though! Asking $2500 in Toronto.
