I have had problem after problem since I bought this car. ECM probs, and constant oxygen sensors going out. It is in the shop now getting the 7th one replaced and there is only 33,000 miles on the car. I was told after the warranty expires, it will cost me $300 to replace each sensor. Forget it. 3 year warranty is up next week. It's time to go trade it in for a Toyota Camry, something reliable. I was also disappointed in the gas mileage, about 21 mpg.
I have enjoyed all the features inside. The climate control AC, the stereo being able to be controlled on the steering wheel. Also the seats are very comfortable. The wood grain look on the dash looks very classy. I really like the car, when it's not in the shop.
This car I only had for 1yr 9 mos. Been in the shop 5 times. I filed a claim under the lemon law. I turned in this car on May 16th, 2007 with 37,332 miles on it. I got it with only 23,900. It's a really nice car, and I got lots of compliments on it. Considering the motor, the suspension and the lack of speed. it was not nice enough to keep and deal with. It would be nice though, if Suzuki can fix the problems on the Veronas, they are very nice. The first car I have ever really liked turned out to be a lemon.
Sound system, the color of it inside and out, interior lights and locations.
Fixing the motor and suspension, it really lacks speed.
The Verona seemed like a great buy, almost luxurious with the leather, heated seats but in 2 short years I am now waiting for a buyback on it. In January (this is April)the engine and transmission were replaced; it is now sitting because of the same major problems and no doubt needs a new engine again. The transmission is erratic and also clunks into gear. The engine leaks oil into places they can not fix - such as the pistons. I didn't have the heart to even trade it in for another car, I didn't want someone else to be stuck with it. My suggestion - don't buy one!!
This was my first car so I was happy to druve any thing but it would not be my first choice. The good thing anout this car is that I havn't had too many mechanical problems with it. The bad thing about it is that it is a 'blah' car. Nothing special about it. I have only seen about 5 others in my city!
A year of ownership this car has major problems. It's been in the shop every month since then with repair bills ranging from $250-600 a shot. This car has had 2 engines, a transmission, suspension, wheel bearings, countless computer reprogrammings ($60 each), axle comes loose about every 6 months (makes a grinding/thumping noise upon acceleration); that's just in the time i've owned it. It's past it's 36k warranty so the only thing that has been covered is the engine and tranny. I baby this thing as i have done with all my cars. Now not out of love but out of fear of it breaking! My thoughts: Don't ever buy this car! If you have one I suggest dumping it fast! Take the equity hit it's cheaper
Sunroof is a good design. Doesn't come off track and has always been smooth.
