Re: Samurai - Endangered Species....
The Samurai is no longer sold in the US. However, it is still built in Spain-save for a new dash, bumpers, and cosmetic items-it is the same Samurai that was sold in the US from 86-95. So, they are still being built and sold across Europe. I believe that the factory in India is still pumping them out too. The Japanese factory is still producing the coil-sprung Samurai-not the Jimny-but the coil sprung Samurai.
IMHO, the Suzuki Samurai is much more popular than the Jeep Wrangler here in Europe and in the mid-eastern countries. Therefore, Suzuki will have the parts for years to come. It's just a question of whether or not Suzuki of North America will choose to import these parts.
