First impressions.

First impressions. was created by Jimx5
After buying my car on Saturday i haven't had the chance to drive it since and it's been sat on my drive for the last 5 days.
So tonight i couldn't wait any longer and i've just had a 45min drive and to say i am pleased with it would be an understatement, the engine loves to sing, meaning drop a cog and let it go, it's no slug if you remember to change gear.
The only niggles with it at the moment is the steering wheel sits about 5 degrees to the right, which having read a post in the technical thread is an easy fix.
Nearside wiper blade doesn't wipe fully, another easy fix.
Windscreen washers only squirt out of one of the dual holes both sides, again an easy fix.
Only one question at the moment, does the fuel gauge have a low level reserve light, not that it's a problem if it hasn't.

I don't know how to post pictures here yet but here is a link to the original sellers ad, if it works.
Thanks for looking.

Ohh, and should the electric mirrors and light leveller dials illuminate.

Congrats! Fuel gauge has no light. I always reset my trip and know aprox how many kms i can go, and when the gauge is at empty i can start noticing in turns when the end is near. Often I can barely get to the pump haha, think its a inner competition on how long I can wait

When low on fuel the Jimny alerts you by the ignition warning light and charging light coming on along with a marked drop in engine noise
