The manager of the eco-lodge said she was giving us a “Jimmy car.” That confused me because I thought she was trying to say it was a car just for me. Then she walked us out to the parking lot and gave us a little Vanna White wave of the hand and showed us the Jimny car.
Not a Jimmy, a Jimny. With an n.
Turns out a Jimny is a four-wheel drive off-road mini SUV made by Suzuki. I didn’t know there was an automotive category called a “four-wheel drive off-road mini SUV.” Did you?
I looked it up. Believe it or not, Suzuki has sold nearly three million of these little suckers in 194 countries since the first one rolled off the assembly line in 1970.
It may have been the perfect car for the rutted, potholed roads of Easter Island.
