Bought this car with 85000 miles and am now up to 117000 miles with NO problems. I averaged 41 MPG on a trip across the country and have not had to spend money on repairs. I change the oil, filters and belts when needed. Great car. Radio and speakers are cheap and problematic, but overall car is very dependable and economic.
Great gas mileage. Bought car new, but then the interior lights start burning out at 1 year. Interior starts fading, poor material. Air flow modulator went out costing 1000 dollars for just the part. Has 2 catalytic converters, but don't know which one to replace. Can't get it inspected because computer can't tell what is wrong with it. Will not buy another Suzuki after this disaster.

the car over four times. Where I was

(hitting a culvert in a driveway at 45
mph) it did well. I was able to walk
out of the car. The car is totalled,
but I owe that I am writing this today
to that car.
I liked the car's enterior design.
When you got in, you were ready to
drive. I really liked the air bags and
other safety features. I can
appreciate them now

In the beginning I had virtually no
problems but over the past few months
it is one thing after another. The car
isn't even a year old yet. It has been
an inconvenience for me to have to take
the car back and forth to the
dealership. I just wish I would have
never bought it.

Hire mechanics that know what they are
doing so my car doesn't have to keep
going back to the dealership, and make
a car that actually lasts.
