I can give you the heads up on Grand vitara's (98 to 2004) but thats about it. :cool:

Rust around the fuel filler cover in the back,if they have been used for wave running, they will rust there.Also around the holes in the floor, if they still have the rubbers in them.Where the body bolts to the chassis,also where the flairs bolt on.the lip where the rear door/gate shut if its a soft top, window frame and where it sits on the car
if i can remember anymore i will post them up

Bent front diff housing .
They dont like being jumped, even in sand dunes.
Also not very happy other halfs when they find out what you've been doing in their cars.

step-son in bellingen has in recent years built up a 'fleet' of these little gems (thats what he thinks of them anyway) - easy to work on; his last acquisition he paid $2600 for had been 'bodgied' up a lot behind the scenes with silastic and lots of holes drilled and screws put into sheet metal to keep the rear detatchable canopy on tighter (bringing on a degree of rust) - aside from that he only had to replace all the rubber bushes on the leaf spring mounts and seals on the gearbox and transfer case. most of this he was able to do himself, barr the bushes which required an extra hand to push on the chassis at the right time to line things up
