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.

Love that suzuki!

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

I purchased my 2004 Aerio SX new in June of 2004 and I love the car. I drove it from Columbus, OH to Cincinnati, Dayton, Mansfield, and Indianapolis, IN as part of my job as a manufacturer's rep until early 2009 and usually got 28 to 30 mpg on the highway. I have over 156,000 miles on the car and have had minimal problems (in fact the only one was the replacement of a catalytic converter), but I change the oil every 3K to 5K miles, and have had two or three brake jobs and one engine tune-up with new platinum plugs plus about three tire (all 4) changes. Even with all the miles it has had very reasonable maintainence costs. Too bad Suzuki dropped this model for a smaller version of it.

I have had the following issues: rattling noise under car (dealer sais noisy compressor and would not fix under warranty) Driver side door buzz with radio turned up. The rear wiper only goes fast. No slow speed.




Suzuki aerio sx fun

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

The Suzuki Aerio SX is more fun with comfort. I wanted a car where the seats went down in the back so that I could have room for plants, dog & more. It is roomy, great looking, very comfortable for my bad back & isn't too high like an SUV or a gas guzzler either! MPG is great; it looks hi-tech; it has everything inside you need; a great CD/radio sound quality. I owned luxury cars, but do not drive long distances anymore & wanted a car that is smooth driving, easy to handle and fun to drive. If you're looking for a good deal, happy motoring days ahead & savings, go for this baby! Many other cars like this are overpriced too.

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

After purchasing our first used Aerio Sedan in April, 2004, I was so impressed with it, that I bought a new Aerio SX in May...just about a month after the first purchase!!! These are sharp looking and performing cars...am a little disappointed that the gas mileage is not higher...but hey, at 29- 32 miles per gallon, who am I to complain with all the Aerio has too offer!!! I recommend these autos very highly!!!




Fun car to drive

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

I've had my Aerio SX for 14 months now. If I had it to do over I would by the exact same car again. It fits my use perfectly. I researched other wagons but found the Aerio SX was far superior in meeting the needs I have for carrying my agility dog around yet having plenty of room for passengers. It's fun and comfortable to drive and ride it. Suzuki did good in designing this car.
