        VEHICLE STORY

        This Vitara JLX was my first car, which was the result of a (longer than planned) "father - son" project. My dad got the car for 400€ back in 2007 off a friend who lived round the corner. It had failed the TüV (German road safety certificate) due to a very long list of things - the main of which was rust. Lifting up the carpets we found 2 things. Rust and a lot of holes! After working on it whenever possible over the next 3-4 years in summer, it finally passed the TüV and I was able to drive it! It was impractical, had high fuel consumption and was slow - but a great experience and introduction into the motoring world. Needing a more practical and reliable car, it was sold in summer 2014 Miss this car a lot now, and wish I had kept it!
