2010 Suzuki Kizashi GTS: Pull This Ring for Reverse

September 17, 2010

I like many things about our long-term 2010 Suzuki Kizashi. Selecting reverse isn't one of them. To get reverse in the Suzook you need to pull up on the ring and move the shifter back and down to the 5 o'clock position. It's not that bad mind you and certainly not a dealbreaker. But if you don't pull the ring up fully you won't get reverse.

I prefer reverse to be up and the right at the 1 o'clock position without pulling up of rings or down on the shift knob. Many GM cars including our long-term Camaro have this, and it's quick to get reverse without any chance of accidently selecting 1st. And going from reverse to first when you're parking is fast and easy.

How about you? Do you have a preference or don't care about this at all?
