Is it broken? Mine is quiet, very comfortable and pretty good on fuel.

No not broken. A tongue in cheek post but a little noisier than my previous car which had auto transmission. I've had my eye on getting one for years and I finally bit the bullet. I'm very impressed with all the interior luxury bits supplied by Suzuki for the SZ5.

Well done you, I am sure you do love it.

I bought a 2020 SZ5 just over a month ago and compared to my previous car (a 2012 Jimny SZ4 for 4.5 years), it's quieter, faster, more power plus it uses far less fuel. I had a 7" touch screen display in my last car so the SZ5 display is not really new, but I like the cruise control and some of the other internal features.

Like you I had to wait almost 10 years after driving a Jimny on holiday before buying one, it was worth the wait.

There are plenty of little inexpensive mods you can make to your SZ5 that will make a difference, but it all depends on what you want to use it for. I have nicked all the good ideas from others on here, so have a look at my blog to see what I have done.

For those of us who regularly drive tractors and other heavy live axle 4x4 monsters a jimny is like being in a Bentley. For those used to modern conventional cars a jimny is like a tractor.

I find the "flaws" that most people used to driving other bigger and more powerful vehicles identify with the jimny is what makes it so much fun.
It's a vehicle that doesn't have a lot to give, but loves to give it all, and it's that enthusiastic behaviour that gives it the personality that it has.
I'm sure you will love owning one.
