Review of the 2005 Suzuki Reno

  • Comfortable, well equipped and solidly built, the Reno represents a good value and provides a more youthful alternative to the Forenza wagon.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Lots of standard features for the price, comfortable cabin with unexpected conveniences, solid construction, predictable handling.

  • Cons

    Unrefined powertrain, subpar fuel economy, similarly priced Aerio makes more power.

  • What's New for 2005

    The Reno is an all-new car for 2005. Based on the Forenza, the Reno uses the same engine, transmission and underpinnings but adds a little attitude with a sleeker five-door hatchback body and a flashier interior design.

Suzuki reno '05 problems!

Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Reno LX 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Bought car in 08/2006. Right after purchase the serpentine belt needed replaced. After one month (9/06) the steering joint had to be replaced, I also had an oil leak and the valve cover gasket needed replaced. 11/06 I had to have the power steering system flushed and the fuel emission serviced. 1/07 The following needed replaced: Front strut upper mountings, bearings, and sway bar links. Luckily most of these repairs were covered under the bumper-to-bumper warranty. I had a brake from repairs until 5/08, the power steering sensor had to be replaced along with the drivers seat assembly. I've had some starting and idling issues and now I have a really hard time starting it. No power.

Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Reno LX 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

A practical car, not a head turner, I bought it for just that practical with decent gas mileage. At 79,000 miles there has been no problems, the 5 speed is great and the sound system for the quality of the car is awesome. I don't like the windows, when they are down they vibrate something fierce. Outside of that great little car, and of course I put the spoiler on, lights inside and options that were available. I would buy another one.

Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Reno LX 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I have owned this vehicle since February of 2005. It now has over 31,000 miles. It has been great. I put new tires on it 2000 miles ago. I opted for wider tires and it has improved its handling.




Suszki reno's water pump problems

Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Reno LX 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

At 4,000 miles, less than 6 months old, the timing belt went out because of a faulty water pump. My car had major motor damage and spent three weeks in the shop and Suzuki knew of the problem and refused to recall the Reno. Now I can not trust the vehicle.

Vehicle: 2005 Suzuki Reno LX 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

When I bought the car, I loved it. Specially the one on display which had special rims and tinted windows. I had decided to get a manual but ended buying the auto. I read reviews and the person did not recommended doing this, but to me it's a very reliabable car. I drove it during the snow and it took me to and back from work. The only thing that I don't like is the fact that is not good when it comes to gas.
