If only I had known this was going to happen!! I bought my 2012 Suzuki Kizashi SE Leather Edition for $21,000 with about 200 miles on it. I would have loved the model you have but the $30,000 sticker price made me stay humble! Glad you like it!! I know I love mine!!! Glad I did get it,although had I waited 4 months,I could have swung a real deal like you ... Read More
This is my long winded way of saying stop doubting yourself. Drive what you like. I'm the proud owner of a new 2012 Kizashi Sport SLS in Azure Gray Metallic. Others might prefer the Optima, Sonata, Legacy, Fusion et all but you're not buying a car for them, it's for you. Bingo! You hit the nail on the head. I am a car guy and I find out about new releases ... Read More
this Kizashi is a real sleeper, meaning no one seems to know about it. To know about this Suzuki Kizashi you have to be a car person, I'm serious. I am, so I was waiting for this one before it hit the lots. I still want one and hopefully one day I will. It was so easy to drive, the car barely jostled you when it went over bumps. It was ...

No, instead they closed dealers in 2010 like it was the end of the world. It was a stupid idea to consolidate dealers in order to move more units per dealer. You need to have dealers close by, or people won't buy. Here in WI, they closed every Suzuki dealer in the northeast quadrant of the state. Sales plunged in that area. It didn't take a rocket surgeon to predict that. ... Read More
It was all new for 2010. This is its third year out. Suzuki lists 14 Kizashi trim levels for 2012, including manual transmission and FWD models. As for its advantages against Subaru (Legacy), they are pretty evenly matched in terms of AWD, power, and gas mileage. The Subaru may be a tad slower, but mpg will be a tad better than the Suzuki. The Legacy is a bit longer and roomier. ... Read More
An all-new model for 2011, the Suzuki Kizashi slims down to a single configuration for 2012. The front-wheel drive and manual transmission previously available have been discontinued. Given the sales levels they slimmed down the transmission offerings, the FWD version was lost in a sea of competition, the AWD sedan has some relative advantages against Subaru and much more expensive AWD choices. This low snow winter in the northeast and midwest ... Read More
I am really interested in purchasing a 2012. I have read many reviews via forums. I am undecided at this point but need to make a decision soon.
All your points are well-taken. I have been to India many times. Suzuki absolutely dominates there, as well as in other places. But for whatever reason (lack of product is certainly one), they have not been able to gain a foothold here in the US. The very good Kizashi is unlikely to change that. It does get good reviews and comes in mid-pack or better in the comparison tests that have ... Read More
