1996 Suzuki Esteem GL 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car new in 1996 to
replace a six month old Dodge Neon
that was a total lemon. While it is a
plan little car the Esteem has lasted
with out a single problem for years
and years.
In most areas I would say Suzuki is
just as good as other Japanese auto
makers. I love the styling and the
fact that you do not see yourself
coming down the street every other car.


Best Features

styling, dependable, fuel economy.


Worst Features

They should have had more padding in the rear seat. More power from the engine would have been nice. Has a hard time on hills. The first few years had 13 inch wheels...look like a shopping cart wheel.

Review

A suzukie esteem was on the lot when i
was looking to replace my huge van, and
i didnt even bo ther looking at it
becuase it was so gastly ugly. well,
whadda know, i drove it, and i fell in
love. the car feels fast (even though
it isnt, i mean, 98 horses, what do you
expect?), corners well, and gets
outstanding fuel economy. if yoru
worried about buying one of thses
machines, just take it for a test dive,
ad dont worry aboutwhats in head of
you, because this is a reliable car.


Best Features

gas mileage, willing engine, cheap price


Worst Features

more rear seat room woudl be nice, and more standard features, like maybe power windows (are we still in the 80's??). more power for this near perfect compact.
