Review of the 2001 Suzuki Esteem

  • An also-ran at the economy car track meet.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong 1.8-liter engine, sporty wheels with performance-oriented tires, attractive -- if not distinctive -- exterior design.

  • Cons

    Engine gets noisy at high revs, so-so suspension, no cruise control or ABS with manual transmission, doesn't offer the most appealing value package in this segment.

  • What's New for 2001

    In an effort to ply prospective Esteem buyers, Suzuki has equipped every model with an in-dash CD player. Stereo head units also get larger controls. Elsewhere, you will find gentle cosmetic changes: The front grille has been restyled, the seats are wrapped in a new fabric and floor mats are standard. Sky Blue Metallic is no longer available as an exterior color.

Vehicle: 2001 Suzuki Esteem GLX Plus 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

I'm glad I did my research before finally deciding on my Suzuki Wagon. This wagon is really a hidden gem in the minefield of Ford wagons and the Subaru . None of them can compare to the relibablity of the Esteem. It has the room I needed without sacrificing fuel economy. Best of all, it's subtle sportiness gets compliments from classmates at college while still being respectable at the workplace. This car has never given me any problems and from what I have heard, I don't expect any down the line either.

Vehicle: 2001 Suzuki Esteem GLX Plus 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

What is it about motorcycle companies that move on to building cars, they make the best engines. This is the second suzuki I've owned (the first was a sidekick 4 dr), I'm pretty abusive to engines in general, high RPMs & irregular oil changes, and I can't ask for a more dependable powerplant. The rest of the car is only so-so, but I know that the car will still be tooling down the road at well over 200,000 miles.
