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


Review

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.


Best Features

The exterior and the sporty looks.


Worst Features

Make it more fuel efficient.

2005 Suzuki Reno S 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I was apprehensive about buying a small car such as the Reno, but after test driving the Kia Rio and then the Suzuki Reno I was assured that the Reno was the car for me. The Reno out-performed the Rio with its acceleration, comfort, noise level and cost! I love my little Reno. It would be just perfect if only it got a wee bit better gas mileage for its size.


Best Features

The tilt steering, CD / MP3 player, hatchback, power windows, and comfy seating.


Worst Features

A louder horn and better placement for ease horn use would be nice. Also, its standard features should include power locks and remote keyless entry. The Reno could get better fuel mileage.

2005 Suzuki Reno S 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My Suzuki Reno is the second Suzuki I have owned. I also currently own an XL-7. I LOVE this car. The interior is set up great and there is plenty of room for me and the kids. The sound system rocks and the ride is as smooth as silk. The braking with the 4 disk brakes is sharp and the speed sensitive steering is awesome...especially in parking lots etc. The only knock I have so far is the gas mileage isn't great. Hopefully that will improve as the car gets broken in better. I highly recommend this vehicle to those looking for a small reliable car! You can't beat the 7 year / 100,000 mile warranty either!


Best Features

The speed sensitive steering, 4 disk brakes, 8 speaker CD / MP3 stereo. I also love the radio controls on the steering wheel!


Worst Features

My only complaint is the gas mileage...it could be better for such a small car.

2005 Suzuki Reno S 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We recently purchased a new 2005 Suzuki Reno. We are very pleased with our purchase. We love how quiet and relaxing it was to drive/ride in. The gas mileage is pretty good (30mpg). We also own a '97 Geo Metro so we're big on gas mileage. We were complaining about wanting more room on longer trips and wanting 4 doors. So we very pleased with the roomy interior, safety features, and the hatchback style. The cargo room is something we have been wanting more of and we are thrilled! We can't wait to go on our first camping trip!


Best Features

The roomy interior, split folding seats, the fact that it is so kid-friendly/family friendly, and the stereo control on the steering wheel. It's a stylish and comfortable vehicle.


Worst Features

The only thing I wish it had on the base model was cruise control. I can install a remote starter and keyless entry myself...but the cruise control is what I think would make this car an 11! But we are completely confident with our purchase.

Review

Hello, I purchased my Suzuki Reno just about a month ago and I have had nothing but great compliments from everyone. If you are looking for a good reliable car this is it. For all the standard features that came with it, it was a great buy. I realy enjoy driving it. For as small as it looks it has a lot of room in the inside. I looked around at a lot of cars , but the Suzuki Reno had everthing that a lot more expensive cars didn't for the very reasonable price. Yes it may not get top gas mileage, but it gets good mileage. I live where it snows and it just snowed a few days ago, it drove and handled very well. All I can say is before you make up your mind on a car, do yourself a favor go test drive a Reno!


Best Features

The stereo controls on the steering wheel. Power tilt/slide sunroof. The key is the remote keyless entry device.The added exterior look w/the SWT pkg.The driver's seat adjustments. The power heated mirrors. The niffty sunglass holder above the driver's side door. The added style with the alloy wheels.


Worst Features

The only thing that I can suggest on improvements is space out the brake pedal from the gas pedal, it's a little close. Also, maybe darker tint in windows.
