2008 Suzuki Reno 4dr Hatchback w/Convenience Package (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I just bought my '08 Reno a few days ago, and so far I'm very impressed with its performance and ride quality. MPG aren't too bad, but they could be a little better. For about 20-25 dollars you could expect to ride for a pretty good bit on a full tank. That's pretty good compared to a much bigger vehicle. My roommate has a minivan, and that take anywhere from thirty to forty dollars to fill up, and gas doesn't last half as long as it does in mine. I'm 24, and this is my very first vehicle, and so far I'm very happy, and well satisfied with my purchase.


Favorite Features

Stereo System, Aux capabilities, and Seating.


Suggested Improvements

My only suggestion would be with the gas mileage, which for me isn't that big of an issue right now.

2008 Suzuki Reno 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this '08 Reno with 2,400 miles on it. It's my ride from home to work and back. This is the first small car that I have ever owned. I traded in my '98 Lumina (168k miles)and $5400 cash and drove it off the lot. So many of the reviews have been less than complimentary, but as an owner, I think this is a great little car. 3 year/36k mile bumper to bumper, a 100k powertrain warranty, and 24 hour roadside assistance. I don't like the fact there aren't many dealerships around for service concerns, but I have only had one issue with the airbag light staying on all the time. Remember that you get what you pay for. I bought a 4-cylinder automatic. I don't expect to keep up with a Vette!


Favorite Features

Interior is roomy for a smaller car and looks good. Sound system works well. A/C blows cold and hard. I like the sunglass holder on the driver's side. As stated above, it has an excellent warranty and free roadside assistance program.


Suggested Improvements

Keyless remote, cruise control, should have electric unlock on passenger side also, and improve MPG.

2008 Suzuki Reno 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We bought this car with a sonata in mind but the price point was to much to pass up. Its peppy and quick for such a small engine. Plan to put on wheels, Cruise, tint and keyless with an alarm. Love it get lots of second looks in the parking lots. Put on a coat of turtle wax ice and it looks great. Only problem was pass seat airbag light but was resolved in one visit. 12k out the door cash and we are really happy with it! Lots of room for a small car and with some things like new wheels and tires maybe springs it will handle even better. Also try a k&n airfilter it will bump up the hp and gas mileage! Had a Suzuki motorcycle and this lives up to the name!


Favorite Features

aux input for ipod and blackberry, seat comfort, not to 45 is impressive


Suggested Improvements

cruise, keyless, foglights, turbo model? could be a great tuner car for the younger set!

I drive 90 miles a day and I get from 420 miles to 380 miles on a full tank of gas so the mileage is alright. Needs cruise but hey it's a good price on a car that get me to were I gotta go


Favorite Features

Its steering and power locking doors plus it's roomy


Suggested Improvements

Cruise and key remote should be standard on this car.

2008 Suzuki Reno 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I just purchased this vehicle but thought it odd there were no reviews from users on this vehicle (expert reviews are unkind). It truly is a bargain and drove every bit as well as a Ford Focus. Yes it is basic but for $240 a month for 60 months and 0 down how can you go wrong especially with the warranty this manufacturer offers. We all are facing some realities with gas prices escalating and while the given mileage specs aren't overly impressive most people are getting better than posted mileage. The interior is very nice a pleasent surprise This is the first time I have considered a compact car and I will be ok with this. I didn't feel silly in it and the Suzuki moniker adds intrigue


Favorite Features

Interior ergonomics, music system adequite, hatchback and four door, not feeling like you are in a cheap compact vehicle, price vs performance and value, driving was fun and this thing was pretty peppy, I live in Colorado and it handles the mountains just fine


Suggested Improvements

Not sure yet but I am sure as I get more familiar I will find some irritating things. Nothing is perfect especially at this price point.
