2004 Suzuki Verona S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I acquired this as a used car with only 11,500 miles, and loved the aesthetic value. It looks wonderful, inside and out! But this past January, I had to have to the transmission completely replaced. I've also had my doubts about the axles and CV joints, though the dealer hasn't found anything wrong. The "check engine" light has come on a couple times over false alarms and I've noticed that the transmission can be quite sticky when switching out of/into reverse gear. I also have some concerns about whether the Verona could've been designed with better fuel efficiency. Lastly, I've abandoned using the wheel-mounted stereo controls; they don't respond accurately at all.


Best Features

I love the heated seats and the interior is quite impressive. I've had a lot of compliments on the luxurious feel. The sunroof is pleasant and I must commend Suzuki for giving the Verona more than adequate trunk space.


Worst Features

Better fuel efficiency, definitely. The engine could use a bit more power also. A smoother transmission system is an absolute must! Move the stereo controls off the wheel, or make them thoroughly reliable. And like everyone else, a passenger seat with power controls would be vastly appreciated.

2004 Suzuki Verona LX 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I cant believe there is anyone out there that is happy with their Verona. It must be that some are great and then most are junk. My Verona has been in the shop six times and it is still junk. I have read that the engine was not designed to run on fuel that has an ethanol content. My Verona has been in the shop six times and the engine is still not right. Suzuki does not stand by this great Warranty they claim to have. I have also read that a lot of Verona owners have had Suzuki buy back their Verona, why would Suzuki do that unless they know the car is junk. I am trying to make the same thing happen. Its a battle. Good-luck.


Best Features

Its hard to find any favorite when you cant drive this vehicle without worrying if it is going to leave you on the side of the road.


Worst Features

The best suggestion I could give Suzuki on this Vehicle is to stop selling it until they decide to put a Suzuki designed engine that is meant to be operated in the United States. And do the right thing and buy back anyones Verona that has had the engine problems that mine has had.

2004 Suzuki Verona EX 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This car has proven to be a poor choice. Although it has nice styling both on the outside and inside, the constant miniscule problems I have had for the past 4 years have all but driven me crazy. There have been few major problems, except just last week I got it out of the dealership shop for a tapping noise. Thank God for the 100,000 mile warranty, because Suzuki just replaced the entire head, no questions, and it didn't cost me a cent. It continues to be reliable, but I will not purchase another Suzuki.


Best Features

Nice interior appointments, and exterior styling. Nothing remarkable, but nice. The warranty is unbeatable.


Worst Features

This car will not compete with other foreign mid-size sedans without some significant quality improvements.

2004 Suzuki Verona EX 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I'm pretty pleased with the Suzuki Verona. I've read the other reviews and I haven't had the same number of problems as some of the reviewers. I have only had two problems. The first is that in the city and on the highway I only seem to get 19mpg. The second problem that I've had is the car occasionally stalling out at red lights. That's the reason that I decided to post a review. I took the car into the dealership and they told me that they couldn't reproduce the problem but it happend again on the way home. The good news is that I put STP Gas Treatment in the car the next time I filled up and the problem hasn't recurred in 3 months. I suspect it was bad gas or a dirty injector.


Best Features

The car looks good and it has a lot of accelleration.


Worst Features

Needs better cup holder and better gas mileage.

2004 Suzuki Verona LX 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Love the leather, heated seats and the way it handles on hair pin curves. Needs more cup holders. There have been some serious problems with it, so far most have been resolved with warranty (100K warranty thankfully!). For resale though, I sure wish I would have bought the Camry.


Best Features

Leather, heated seats, traction control, handling, looks nice when all cleaned up, zips down the road easily. Not a real tire burner in 40-50 mph range, kind of delays on me and then goes ok.


Worst Features

Evap filter needs redesigned - I've had to have it fixed twice. Waiting for parts sometimes is 3-4 weeks - a pain for major parts. More cupholders would be nice.
