Review of the 2005 Suzuki Aerio

  • As the most affordable all-wheel-drive car on the market, the Aerio may suit buyers in harsh climates, but in most other respects it lags behind its more refined competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Available as a sedan or wagon, optional all-wheel drive, roomy interior, powerful standard engine, long list of standard features, solid crash test scores.

  • Cons

    Some low-grade interior plastics, sloppy handling.

Also, side airbags are now standard on all Aerios. The base S model gains power door locks, keyless entry, a rear spoiler and additional interior trim accents.

Extremely dangerous on highways

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Aerio S Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)

The 2005 Suzuki Aerio is a danger on the highways because the front axles may suddenly break without warning!! In July 2011 while in a parking lot about to make a left turn from a stopped position, the left front axle broke. The dealer's shop replaced Control Arm only. Two weeks later, went someplace else & had wheels aligned because car vibrating badly. Found CV joint damaged & boot ripped. CV joint replaced Sept. 2012. Oct. 2012, while stopped at a corner about to make a right turn, the right front axle broke. Called Suzuki in Calif. but they aren't interested in the danger. Owners should stay off of highways and have front end carefully checked at once under strong light.

Enigne, transmission & paint

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Aerio S Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

This car is junk. At less than 100,000km the paint began to chip, the muffler and exhaust rotted completely, went through 2 sets of tires, and im pretty sure my rotars are long overdue. At 105,000km, I had the engine replaced because of a manufacturers defect. A Piston rod snapped firing the remaining pieces through my block, into the oil pan. At 120,000km, My transmission goes (M.T.). My synchros is finished causing severe grinding when decelerating during a downshift. The stock battery is terrible. I left my stereo on for 10 minutes while the car was off. DEAD. My airbag light came on at 85,000km. The road noise is terrible, the electrical motors in the windows are failing. enuf said?




Megamega tire eater

Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Aerio LX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)

Our car eats tires. We also lost our AWD. Our dealer has fixed the viscous coupler joint and aligned the tires. We still have a serious vibration at 55 mph and above. Our current tires are wearing fast.




Tire eating machine

Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Aerio LX Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

This car has eaten three sets of tires in 70,000 miles. Something is wrong with the rear end. The dealer says that nothing is wrong, yet it eats tires. I'm on my 4th set of tires, good tires Michelen's Symmetri. It also has worn out Goodyears and two sets of Bridgestones.

Exellent car

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Aerio S Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

My husband and I have owned two Aerios. The first we bought used, and bought the second when we traded in the used Aerio because we wanted some of the updated features it had. The Aerio has been nothing but reliable. It had great acceleration and is agile and superbly handles city and highway traffic. It's easy to back out and park like a small car but has almost the interior space of a touring sedan. It's more attractive than much of its competition and offers a comparable or better engine to boot.




Lucky lady

Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Aerio LX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)

I named my Aerio "Lucky Lady." It's been months and I'm still crazy about driving it. I'm a regional store manager, and drive little winding mountain roads every day. I upgraded the factory tires with Yokohama TRZ and have had no problem getting to my distant store in snow or ice. I never miss work! My passengers are always amazed by the comfort and roominess of the interior. My boss loves my trunk space. He is always loading me down with cases of drinks. Anyone ever heard of Old Fort Mountain in NC? My Lucky Lady loaded with drinks, can do 60+ over it and I pass everyone. Its great gas mileage is a bonus in times like this.
