2002 Suzuki Aerio S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I just bought a used ex-rental(with a
touch under 18K miles) Aerio S
automatic for my wife. OK it's a budget
car, (power windows, but no power
locks, why?) but in silver she be
lookin' fine (both the wife and the
car!) Due to the price I paid, $8900
($92 more than Edmunds TMV!), I am
persona non grata at the used car lot,
but hey it's the car my wife wanted at
the price I wanted!

Best Features

Cheap but cool (OK, if I have to...its...cute), 141 hp, lots of room, "Best Pick" crash test rating by IIHS-HLDI, timing chain not belt = savings down the road, built in Japan

Worst Features

Powerlocks and locking gas cap standard on the S model. Better tires. Just say no to Suzuki Dealer gouging on service, parts, and accessories.
