Overall pretty good. Ride is very harsh
in cold weather, more tolerable in warm.
After 14,500 miles, dash rattles a
little. Paint job still looks new. Rest
of vehicle is solid. Never been off
road. Very little highway miles.
The engine and trans. are smooth as
silk. Plenty of power. Gas mileage
around town is actually 20.5. Handling
is very sport like, not SUV like.
Suzuki should make a smoother riding
around town model similar to Honda's
CRV. 4 wheel independent suspension
would probably do it. Better quality tires.
