The Suzuki Sidekick was the result of a joint venture between GM and Suzuki, and was aimed further upmarket than its Suzuki Samurai sibling, with young, urban buyers its main sales target. It was actually based on the underpinnings from the old Lada Niva. It looked good, and sold well. The second-generation car looked softer but also sold well, although the three-door version was dropped. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Suzuki repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Suzuki Sidekick repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
