Review of the 2004 Suzuki Aerio

  • As the most affordable all-wheel-drive car on the market, the Aerio may suit a few, but for the most part it lags behind its more refined competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Wagon-body style, available all-wheel drive, affordable price, roomy interior, powerful standard engine, solid crash test scores.

  • Cons

    Almost no storage space in the cabin, low-grade interior plastics, sloppy handling, no side airbags available.

  • What's New for 2004

    A 155-horsepower, 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engine; a seven-speaker stereo; and a driver-seat armrest are now standard on all Aerios. LX sedans (formerly called GS) and SX wagons now offer heated mirrors, foglights, a revised rear spoiler and an automatic climate control system on cars equipped with ABS. There's also a new 15-inch alloy wheel design.

Very reliable ride

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki Aerio SX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

This is the best car I have ever owned. Gas mileage is about 25MPG city and 30 MPG highway. Very peppy drivetrain. Turns on a dime, lots of storage space. Nothing has ever broken down on this car (knock on wood). I have only replace oil, air filters, and a battery. I highly recommend it.




My newest purchase

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki Aerio SX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

My husband and I purchased a 2004 Aerio SX Wagon Standard on May 1, 2006 to replace my Ford Ranger XLT, which I was putting 45 dollars in gas a week into. I haven't measured the gas mileage, all I know is now I'm only paying 25 dollars a week in gas, as opposed to the 45, which is great. I do a lot of interstate driving to and from work, and this car has so much more oomph than my Ranger did. It's very roomy for being a smaller car, and the storage is great. I love the storage in the trunk.




Fun car, has everything i

Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki Aerio SX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

This little car has everything I wanted including power. If I was to improve it I would reduce the power a bit and try to get a bit better gas mileage. I can fit all the camping gear, bikes and freinds I want into it. I'm now hauling my new Kayak on top and it has worked out great. I love this car.




Great vehicle - i love

Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki Aerio SX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

I love my Suzuki Aerio. It is very comfortable, with a surprising amount of room inside. It is the best vehicle I have ever owned. It gets great gas mileage and its controls are easy to use.

My suzuki is the worst

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Suzuki Aerio SX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

My Suzuki Aerio is not even two years old. and we have had it in the shop 8 times now. We are talking major stuff here. The transmission has been changed,along with the head and new pistons. The front axle fell out while my husband was on the interstate. We had the car one month and it went in the shop for the first time. My advice, don't buy this car. We are being told there is nothing we can do about the car. This was by the district manager.




Great car

I love this car and with gas prices continuing to rise it is very affordable!

I like the Aerio, but the interior looks very cheap. Word is that the 05 Aerio will get the updated interior from the 04 JP Aerio....

there was only one vehicle left- a 2004 Suzuki Aerio GS 4-door. As I walked toward it, all I could think was how odd looking it was and I couldn't fight that fact that I instantly liked the wonky-l...
