Suzuki Aerios are like the perfect secret. It's a little seen car that will last forever and is a blast to drive. It has plenty of headroom (something other Japanese cars like Hondas and Toyotas sometimes lack), has a spunky engine, performs well in winter. I drive my Aerio around to conventions all around the midwest, racked up tons of miles and any repairs it needs is routine maintainence and oil changes. And the best part - they are totally affordable! I bought mine used at 52,000 miles for $7,500. If you discover this hidden gem for sale, buy it!

I use this car for work. Stop and go driving. I start and stop the engine approx 41 times a day and the car runs for 10-12 hrs at a time. I have beat this car into construction sites, drilled a guard rail doing 65 mph backwards, and drove it off road nailing rocks and going over logs. I replaced tires, two front wheel bearings at 150,000 miles, 4 front brake rotors, a serpentine belt. It now needs a full exhaust system and a radiator, its not the most comfortable car on the market or the most fuel effecient but keep good fluids in it and it should provide you with adaquate transportation. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one again.

Best quality auto have owned and ease of handling is superb definitely will look at Suzuki when buying in the far future the build is above everything else and is built to last years. Just needs a cruise control as the engine will get you way the speed limit if you don't monitor.

I just bought a used ex-rental(with a
touch under 18K miles) Aerio S
automatic for my wife. OK it's a budget
car, (power windows, but no power
locks, why?) but in silver she be
lookin' fine (both the wife and the
car!) Due to the price I paid, $8900
($92 more than Edmunds TMV!), I am
persona non grata at the used car lot,
but hey it's the car my wife wanted at
the price I wanted!

Great Car with 140HP+, VERY reliable.
my friends with their focis(focuses)
and cavaliers laugh at my choice to go
over-seas. I laughed at both of them
last week when their crappy american
made cars were in the shop for sensor
failures and oil leaks. Gas miliage is
great. It has a lot of pep to it.

The Aerio's interior finish/materials
feel very Germanic (Golf-like), the
engine is very quick off the line and
smooth at 80MPH Highway Speeds, the
digital dash is GREAT! The seats are
all firm and very supportive and there
is plenty of room. There is also a
TIMING CHAIN, not a timing belt as
well as the 7 Year/100000 Mile
Powertrain Warranty also. I would just
recommend to anyone, before buying
anything else in this class to cross-
shop this car, because I think you
would find it to outperform the others
in most categories, aside from the
Aerio feeling more upscale and
substantial than its price would
