2011 Suzuki Kizashi SE 4dr Sedan AWD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
I bought a 2011 around this time last year.
From a mechanical and fun to drive standpoint, its great, but the painted metal surfaces are rusting and Suzuki is denying it as a defect, claiming instead that its an environmental.
I haven't owned many cars that rusted, let alone with only 6000 miles on them.
Needless to say, my good will towards the company is lost and now it will become a legal matter.
Its ashame really, as I did whole lot of research before picking this car.....so I really wanted it. Now I'm not so sure.....and who really know's the extent of the rust....it could be encompass the entirely of the unibody.
Beware as this isn't an isolated issue, just the responses vary.
Seats could offer more lower cushion support and the steering wheel blocks the speedometer in the position I use.
Obviously the paint is an issue for me.
I won't be buying another as result of manufacturer's response to my situation
