View Full Version : DD vs DB
03-31-2008, 02:40 AM
Just a quick question to all Suzuki fans. Which model do you prefer, DD51T or DB51T. Please often ask me which is better, and I just tell them the options. But, I'd love to hear what the public thinks.
For me, I like the DD51T with round headlights. They do sell well in Canada. The DBs with round headlights are good too, but some people say they look older.
Just looking for thoughts!

OK, now you've piqued my interest, what is the difference between them? I didn't realize there were any differences.

I was trying to see what people think of the differences between the DD and DB. There are differences. Some people may not be bothered with the differences.

So........basically the headlight issue? No biggie.
We have a 90 and a 92 with positive-switched lights and a 91 with negative-switched.....how does that work?
90 and 91 are round headlights...not sure of the S/N prefix, but I'll check that out.

there is a wee bit more room in the dd51t
the wiper switch is higher
for operating the clutch

OK, I noticed that, but I guess I attributed it to one being newer than the others....Learn something EVERYDAY on these little guys. For instance, CHECK ALL OIL AND FLUID LEVELS!!!! And the tire pressures....the ones we got rode like lumber wagons, until we discovered the tires were aired up to 88 psi, must be for shipping purposes, so they don't bounce and shift around in the container during the Pacific crossing.

what i can say is...the dd51 has a tighter cabin than the db51 which is roomier that can fit 6 foot and above driver.

The only major mechanical difference that I have found is that the DD has the radiator sitting right out in front just behind the plastic bumper and a little piece of sheetmetal between the headlights. The DB has the radiator sitting inside of the engine house right underneather the shift lever. Very similar to the Diahatsu trucks. I feel like the radiator is better protected in the DB without having to install anytype of front end gaurd.

Sorry to jack this, but a quick note for Canadians.
Of course most of the tires must be replaced in Canada by law. If they are not stamped with a load range or stamped DOT they do not pass inspection.
