Review of the 2002 Suzuki Esteem

  • An aging economy sedan that offers little in terms of value or amenities.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong 1.8-liter engine, attractive -- if not distinctive -- exterior design, sedan and wagon body styles.

  • Cons

    Engine gets noisy at high revs, so-so suspension, ABS not available on sedan, doesn't offer the most appealing value package in this segment.

  • What's New for 2002

    Not much changes for the 2002 Esteem. The seat upholstery is new, and sedans now have an inside trunk release handle. Suzuki has changed with the trim levels, and last year's GLX+ and GLX Sport sedan trims are no longer available. Suzuki now offers a 24-hour roadside assistance program.

Most dependable car ever

Vehicle: 2002 Suzuki Esteem GL 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

I have no complaints, used to be Toyota man, but my maintenance costs have been nearly nothing in the first 100K miles

Great car for the price

Vehicle: 2002 Suzuki Esteem GL 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Bought it used (5 speed, wagon) and never had any issues whatsover. With the rear seats folded down, it had very good usable cargo space. You can fit stuff in there you can never imagine in a sedan. Wonder why people still prefer to buy sedans over wagons.

Super reliable

Vehicle: 2002 Suzuki Esteem GLX 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

I just traded in my Esteem. Broken-hearted. A fantastic vehicle. I used it for courier deliveries. Back seats fold flat and the cargo space held everything! Handled very heavy (500 lbs) loads without too much complaining. Lots of jackrabbit starts (deadlines you know) and sudden stops. But the reliability was great. Never even changed a headlight until 260,000 km. Several things (rad, control arm, CV boots etc) went this week. But now that its got 365,000 km (228 k miles) I can't really complain.




Need more thinking

Vehicle: 2002 Suzuki Esteem GLX 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

after using this car for one year i don't like the brake because it makes a thump when you push hard on it. tires and suspension are hard going over bumps. the engine is so noisy when trying to push the car. the interior is not well thought of. it has a spot for a digital clock in the dash but nothing is there just a whole.




Wonderful wagon

Great car, so far so good.




If i could turn back

Vehicle: 2002 Suzuki Esteem GL 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Cheap body materials, thin paint, cheap interior. Average exterior styling. Poor interior styling. Handles well, but performs average to below average. My automatic hesitates on acceleration, and jumps between gears as I accelerate or decelerate while driving. Headlights are dim, and poorly aimed.
