Hello,
I'm interested in purchasing this Vitara. There is some right side body damage and The key turns hard and rattles while running. Any ideas why the key would turn hard? Is this a minor steering column problem? Is the rattle exhaust or may it be something more?
Thank you!

Hi there,

Thank you for the donation, you may just have to lube the lock with a little powered graphite, if that does not work you may have to replace the lock, the rattle can be any number of things, but an exhaust rattle is high on the list, I would start here.
