Good Pick 2002 SX 5M
By Cary on
2002 Suzuki Aerio S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Bought this 2002 in Nov 2003 as a "temporary" car after the one I was dring was totaled. Four years later, still going strong. No real problems from SX at all. Good room inside, plenty of head room for me (6'3"). Nice design touches: reclining rear seats, arm rest in rear, cargo cover, height adj front seat, tilt steering, storage tray under pass seat . Not a huge fan of digital dash, but function can't be faulted and forward visibility is excelent. Easy to maintain, good on tires and brakes. MPG good but not great (28-29 most of the time), that bigger engine has its downside.
Interior space, seat height, a lot of standard features.
Out of production, but could have had longer shifter lever, rear disc brakes.
