Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)

You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.

× An area for non Suzuki Jimny related chat. Keep it clean etc. as this is a public forum with young readers.

Is this the reason??

Could it be that I have driven 4x4s for so many years - like 35yrs - that I have never had the problem this article describes. Do you car drivers find the Jimny is a lot quieter than regular cars?

i can see what they mean, of all the cars/4x4's/van's ive had (30+ all told), the quietest have always had larger tyres and independent suspension/chassis construction. My jim is regularly commented on by passengers as to how quiet it is (unless im on the loud pedal) :-)

Its a complicated question. My Jimny is generally quiet apart from its mud tyres.
My old shogun was good for road noise but it was on 15" wheels with 31" tyres. :)
My civic is the Type S GT, lower and stiffened on its suspension with 17" alloys on 225/40/17 tyres.
Its very quiet unless you are at higher revs using the V-tec. :)

Jimny JLX Facelift model 2005.

2" lift with Procomp Es1000 shocks.

Yeah, I fully expected and up to date car to be as quiet as it gets but I am amazed at the noise.
