The Suzuki Jimny is every much a mainstay in the Suzuki truck line today, as it was 25 years ago when it was first launched. The durability and versatility of the Suzuki Jimny truck has been proven in many applications, from military use to high altitude off-roading. It has a cult following around world, where the many variations can be found with a large number of modifications. Hundreds of Jimnys are available from every generation weekly at the Japanese dealer auctions.

Like many Japanese manufacturers, Suzuki obtained one of their most famous models by acquiring another company. The Jimny started off as the Hope Star, and it was a small 2 cycle 359cc machine with a 4 speed Manual transmission and 4wd transfer case, putting out a modest 21hp. At the time Suzuki was looking to break into the jeep market and bought the rights to the Star from Hope Motor Company, their first step to becoming a leader in the market.

This first official Suzuki Jimny was born in 1970. The LJ10 featured the same engine as its predecessor but had a completely redesigned chassis and body. Suzuki added zip down canvas doors as another new feature. Several other changes took place in the 70s: A water-cooled 550cc engine, a wider chassis and a longer body to meet new kei standards, and solid doors. The SJ10 greatly improved the Jimny’s off road capabilities by increasing power under the hood while maintaining the light weight chassis from previous models. Suzuki also produced a larger 800cc 4 cylinder model for export which was very successful overseas.

The second generation Jimny, introduced in 1981, was completely redesigned with driver comfort in mind. The wheel base was expanded, suspension improved, cab size increased, AC was offered as an option, and the interior was designed to be more stylish and appealing to a larger customer base. During this period the Jimny 1000, which boasted a tough, 4 cylinder 1000cc engine that put out 52hp @ 5000rpm, was the truck that really brought the Jimny to the world. Several variations were produced: Half metal door convertible, full metal door type, hard top, and pick up. Suzuki also expanded production to India, Australia and North America where it was marketed as the Samurai.

In 1990, the kei regulations changed in Japan allowing for a larger body and engine. Suzuki introduced the new JA11 equipped with a the 3-cylinder 660cc, fuel-injected turbo F6A engine and intercooler. The F6A was quick, durable and popular engine and was used in many other Suzuki models throughout its second generation, including the Alto Works. Though the Jimny continued to be exported to the US as the Samurai, this engine never made it across the pond. Other changes to the JA11 included: steering improved with the use of universal joints, transfer case was relocated to the center floor area, and front disc brakes improved stopping power.

This particular Jimny is a Turbocharged, 5 speed, 4wd, full metal door model with AC. It has been completely repainted inside and out, and has a clean rust free undercarriage. It was sourced from USS Tokyo auction house, the heart of the JDM auction market. Our customer wanted his truck to be as stock as possible, but Jimnys with various mods can be found at auction or on dealer lots across Japan. The most common mods are lift kits, fender flares, winches and bumpers.

The Suzuki Jimny is as tough as a Landcruiser and quick like a Samurai (literally). They tend to hold their value better than any kei truck, from that time, and several are available in good condition daily from Japan’s used car market.

  • review rating 5  A few months ago I set out on my goal of importing a vehicle from Japan through an auction. After tons and TONs of research and countless emails, I decided to use Japan Car Direct as my exporter in Japan. From the beginning of my interactions with JCD, I was thoroughly impressed. My contact, Yoshi, was amazing...definitely a huge asset to the JCD team. He answered all of my questions promptly, translated dozens of auction sheets for me, and advised me of what to watch out for when looking for a vehicle. He was beyond helpful! I picked up my Kei truck at the port in Newport News a few weeks ago and couldn't be more pleased. Since then, the truck has made it to its final home in Charlottesville, VA on my farm. Yoshi and the other guys at JCD are now my go to team for more of these soon. Thanks again JCD and keep doing what you guys do! You all are the real deal.

    review rating 5  Since a kid the FD RX7 has always been a dream car but i didn't pursue it till i graduated high school but the prices just for the shell over here in california was over 15k!! I kept looking around until I decided i would just import one. I found JCD while looking for the top 5 importers you could trust and they stood out more than all the other ones, and for a couple months of more research on their page until I ultimately decided I would go through them. Although this was my first time getting a car from Japan and having an endless amount questions spanning a couple hundred emails until it would freeze up and i had to make a new email thread .. Mathew always answered every question and helped me though every step. I didn't have all the funds in the beginning but they were very patient with it until i was fully ready, then after a month of having Matt give his thought on some of the FDs i was looking at we finally won the auction for a 94 Efini type R Fd3s. As we picked it up from Long Beach till the drive home I couldn't believe that it was here and soo much better just looking at the picture but i defiantly would recommend JCD to anyone looking to import their dream car too and and want to thank matt and the whole team with getting me my RX7.

  • review rating 5  I'd been looking to buy an RF series Honda Stepwagon to convert into a mini camper for a while but the UK prices always seemed too high. I had joined a few JDM import sites to get an idea of auction prices and costs (including Japan Car Direct) but just couldn't bring myself to take the next step, it seemed such a risk ! Finally after reading so many good reviews for JCD (and Mathew in particular) I took the plunge and contacted Mathew. After he answered my many questions regarding costs, fees etc I felt confident enough to pay the deposit and start hunting the Japanese auctions for my Steppy. My budget for the Steppy was pretty low (pathetic even !) but I felt Mat still put the same effort into replying to my questions and queries as he would have done if my budget had been into the tens of thousands. The result was I now have a very tidy Stepwagon with lower mileage than any vehicle I've ever owned, I've paid far less for it then I would have done buying in the UK and I've got a bigger budget now for the camper conversion. I wouldn't hesitate to buy through them again, and hope to do so soon.

    review rating 5  5 star experience from start to finish. Transparent and easy process, and Mat was very patient to answer plenty of questions I had during the purchase! Can’t wait to do it again because the Japanese cars from this era are pure automotive art and these guys hold the keys to the museum!

    review rating 5  After an initial inquiry several years ago, I still wanted to get a Japanese Delica or Hiace. Matthew was immediately in contact and helped with all the details. His videos were perfect for my search. Matthew was able to answer all of my questions and my wife and I were able to make decisions based on the great information he provided. I would recommend Japan Car Direct to anyone interested in getting the right car at the best price.

    review rating 5  All around exceptional experience! Matt was great to work with and guided me through the entire process with ease. As a first timer, importing was a bit nerve racking but JCD did a great job providing a cool little truck I can enjoy here in Delaware. I look forward to picking up the next toy/vehicle through them.

    review rating 5  The experienced, grizzled veterans of the import scene. They were very accommodating with all my questions and concerns. It was my first time importing, so everything was confusing and intimidating, but I'm happy to report everything went as planned! I'm definitely calling them back when I finally come up with an excuse to import another!

    review rating 5  Working with Mathew and his team was an absolute pleasure. I went from never knowing you could import your own vehicle to owning my own Suzuki Cara within 6 months. Mathew was so helpful and completely transparent with me during the entire process. We spoke on the phone and via email and he helped me pick the perfect car exactly within my requirements. He dealt with my excitement and inexperience with patience and understanding. I couldn't be happier with my experience and will absolutely use Japan Car Direct again when it's time for another project. I highly recommend Mathew and Japan Car Direct.

    review rating 5  Just purchased my second car through Japan Car Direct. Could not be more pleased with their customer service. Matt went above and beyond to help me find the right car. Translating countless auction sheets, messaging sellers, requesting vehicle inspections, putting up with me and my requests well after his time in the office, etc. I can happily and honestly say that I would recommend this company to anyone looking to purchase a car from Japan and that you will not be dissappinted. Very kind, helpful and professional. Can’t wait for vehicle number 3.
