2007 Suzuki SX4 Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
My wife and I were looking for a small car with reasonable mileage and comfortable seats. Mileage is constant 27mpg with commuter driving 110 milies per day. Ride great for small car and the seats are better than some larger cars. My wife at 5'5" has hard time with view at front left due to bad blind spot. Here's the rub, needed first break job with rotors(no warning) at 42k (not bad). Could not get dealer appt. and had metal on metal so we had our local garage do the job. None of the parts are available after market and the front pads alone cost $200. With rotors the front brakes were more than $400.00. AWD maintenance is also greatly out of line with other makes.
Comfortable ride, AWD excellent and easy to drive.
Fix blind spot on left front. Make pricing on replacement parts realistic. I can not recommend this car because of high maintenance costs. I have an 06 Suzuki Areo sedan and find the same problems with costs I just paid $172.00 for 1 front caliber.
