I have written before about my SX4 Sport sedan. It was totaled over a month ago when a brand new Chevy Impala rental car sideswiped it after the Chevy ran a red light, collided with cross traffic, and crashed into my car as I was crossing the intersection at about 40 mph. The Impala hit my SX4 in the rear drivers side door and ripped the left rear wheel off the Suzuki. The side impact airbags saved me from serious injury according to the police and the EMTs.
Side impact airbags!
Suzuki needs a bigger dealership network in the US and the SX4 has terrible resale value for that reason. Suzuki parts are very expensive. I bought a Ford Focus SES sedan as a replacement vehicle because it will hopefully hold its value better - but I would highly recommend the SX4 Sport to friends!
