The best part? The seller has a marital disclosure. Yup, if he doesn’t get his price his wife will “cut him off like a pimp”.
I am pleased. The shop used all OEM parts and washed and vacuumed the car, too. They are billing Allstate (the other guy’s insurance) for the extra cost and parts they had to order.

The Suzuki Jimny rebadged as the Mazda AZ-Offroad was available in Japan from at least 1998-2013. I just sent an email to Mazda USA asking if the new 2019 model will be available in the US in 2019 or 2020. Lets bombard them with requests.
