Pretty cheap car to buy bought one for $1400 with
95k miles, currently has 98k miles. Pretty good starter car if you can invest the money in it to keep it running. For example: a person who cant consistently pay a car payment ontop of full coverage insurance but can afford to save up money and eventually fix stuff. Car is pretty peppy so I don't know what other people are talking about on the car not having pep. Also seems to get pretty good gas mileage. Hwy it averages about 35mpg city, I haven't really measured.
Suzuki Aerios are like the perfect secret. It's a little seen car that will last forever and is a blast to drive. It has plenty of headroom (something other Japanese cars like Hondas and Toyotas sometimes lack), has a spunky engine, performs well in winter. I drive my Aerio around to conventions all around the midwest, racked up tons of miles and any repairs it needs is routine maintainence and oil changes. And the best part - they are totally affordable! I bought mine used at 52,000 miles for $7,500. If you discover this hidden gem for sale, buy it!
The Aerio's interior finish/materials
feel very Germanic (Golf-like), the
engine is very quick off the line and
smooth at 80MPH Highway Speeds, the
digital dash is GREAT! The seats are
all firm and very supportive and there
is plenty of room. There is also a
TIMING CHAIN, not a timing belt as
well as the 7 Year/100000 Mile
Powertrain Warranty also. I would just
recommend to anyone, before buying
anything else in this class to cross-
shop this car, because I think you
would find it to outperform the others
in most categories, aside from the
Aerio feeling more upscale and
substantial than its price would
It is a fun car to drive, has alot of
power for the cars in its class. I
have yet to see alot of aftermarket
parts, but im sure there soon to come.
There is alot of room, I'm 6'4" and i
fit in this car pretty good. The
resale value is not that good, but its
not a civic.
