Sazuki SUV

I rented a car today while mine is being repaired, and I was fortunate to get upgraded a gazillion levels above the "cheapskate special" I had ordered, because they were out of those kinds of cars. As a result, I am driving a green Sazuki SUV.

Unlike the RAV 4, it has a two-wheel drive option, but it seems to be the rear wheels that do the pushing. I think this is to get better gas milage. When you need to and have the time to do it, you can switch to 4-wheel drive by stopping, putting the car in neutral, and moving a shift lever. You can even select a low-geared 4-wheel drive in case you're pulling a tanker or something.


Hey Ron, isn't that supposed to be a 'Suzuki' ? Or is there another brand in SUVs that I am completely not aware about ! :-)

Oops, quite right. I hope I got the Japanese spelling right :-)
