Bought this 2002 in Nov 2003 as a "temporary" car after the one I was dring was totaled. Four years later, still going strong. No real problems from SX at all. Good room inside, plenty of head room for me (6'3"). Nice design touches: reclining rear seats, arm rest in rear, cargo cover, height adj front seat, tilt steering, storage tray under pass seat . Not a huge fan of digital dash, but function can't be faulted and forward visibility is excelent. Easy to maintain, good on tires and brakes. MPG good but not great (28-29 most of the time), that bigger engine has its downside.
Interior space, seat height, a lot of standard features.
Out of production, but could have had longer shifter lever, rear disc brakes.
The Suzuki Aerio seems to have no power and no leg room. The engine size needs to be a 2.8 liter or larger. This will give much better gas mileage and power to pick up speed due to the wieght of the vehicle. The steering wheel needs to be raised more up words. The dash board could have more features. GPS maybe. This is a family station wagon. The family needs to be safe and know where they are going.
I kile how this vehicle is inconspicuous and does not draw too much attention.
Increase the valve size on the engine, giving the vehicle more pickup power and allowing it to still save gas because it is so light. Also, add more luxury features, like GPS.
The 2002 Suzuki Aerio SX was the best car I have ever had. I would give it an 11 on a scale from 1 to 10. It's sporty and fun to look at as well as to drive. It has tons of storage, and kept me safe in an accident. I love this car!
The hidden ice bucket, great gas mileage, exterior design, fold down seats...everything!
Best quality auto have owned and ease of handling is superb definitely will look at Suzuki when buying in the far future the build is above everything else and is built to last years. Just needs a cruise control as the engine will get you way the speed limit if you don't monitor.
makes you feel like in a much higher priced auto, Like the simple but easy to read dash instruments.
