I purchased this car new following
extensive research. Thrilled initially:
great performance, adequate gas
mileage, able to be loaded up with STUFF
and then coverts easily for passengers.
And, FUN TO DRIVE. I began having
mechanical problems around 40,000 mi.
Front axle seal came out of position
causing leakage--3X! (Very costly
repair)Finally, root cause is determined
to be ring and pinion. Dealer and
Suzuki picks up cost. 3 months later,
another costly repair involving the air
conditioner. Love this car, but I will
never buy another one. Too many
problems. Dealer service was EXCELLENT.
I guess I was lucky there.
Folded back seats leave flat space for
cargo. It's got power for a vehicle its
size. Great body design.
