It's a decent car, but....
By bigjazzfan on
2005 Suzuki Forenza S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I bought a 2005 Suzuki Forenza with 116,000 miles.
For what I need (a commuter car) it ran great.
I realized it leaked quite a bit of oil, and the antifreeze was disappearing, and the airbag light was on of course.
When speaking to a dealer he said he'd never seen a 2005 Forenza NOT leak a considerable amount of oil.
I had it for a few months, as long as I kept my eyes on the fluid levels, it was ok.
I eventually traded for a different car.
If you're looking for a car to rack up miles on, this is it.
If you're looking for comfort or long-term reliability, look elsewhere.
Though odd, I liked the "hold" button for going up hills, so i didn't rev up the engine more than I wanted.
I also liked how fast it got up to speed for a 4 cylinder
I would just suggest a sturdier car and a better electric setup so dash lights aren't going off like a christmas tree all the time.
