2009 Suzuki SX4 Crossover 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Technology Pkg, Nav (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Purchased the car used in November 2011 with 21,400 miles. Six thousand miles later I have had zero problems. I have only changed fluids and rotated tires. Traded a 4-cyl Ford Ranger for the SX4. Gas mileage for both vehicles is the same: 27 city/30 highway. However the SX4 has AWD, a primary reason for the purchase. It supposedly carries the lowest MSRP of any AWD vehicle sold in the U.S. Although after owning the SX4 six months, nothing on it appears cheap. The glowing consumer reviews on Edmunds sealed the deal (thanks Edmundsí readers). It is a tall vehicle which probably explains the high wind noise which becomes annoying at speeds greater than 80mph. Also the engine needs a

Favorite Features

Engine torque. The seating position. I have a bad back that starts hurting after driving or riding for less than an hour in the typical compact car. Not an issue in the SX4. Solid body panel fit. No tinny sound when closing the doors on this vehicle. The solid sound when closing the doors speaks to the high quality of the carís body panel construction and assembly

Suggested Improvements

Add a sixth gear to the manual transmission. It would lower cruising rpm and improve gas mileage. Steering wheel controls while convenient, would be easier to use at night if lighted. Vague clutch engagement when shifting from second to third gear.

For model year 2010 and up a sixth gear has been added to the manual transmission with slightly lower cruising rpm and improved gas mileage. Syncros have been strengthened for smoother shifting between gears. Also for model year 2010 and up, steering wheel controls are illuminated for night time operation.
