2004 Suzuki Aerio SX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love my Suzuki Aerio. It is very comfortable, with a surprising amount of room inside. It is the best vehicle I have ever owned. It gets great gas mileage and its controls are easy to use.


Best Features

I love the amount of room inside, not sure that's a feature exactly, but it is my favourite thing about this vehicle, it looks really small from the outside but it has more room than my mother-in-law's VW Jetta Wagon. I managed to fit in my daughter's Peg Perego Polaris 700 kid's 4 wheeler into it!

2004 Suzuki Aerio SX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My Suzuki Aerio is not even two years old. and we have had it in the shop 8 times now. We are talking major stuff here. The transmission has been changed,along with the head and new pistons. The front axle fell out while my husband was on the interstate. We had the car one month and it went in the shop for the first time. My advice, don't buy this car. We are being told there is nothing we can do about the car. This was by the district manager.


Best Features

The only thing that I like about the car now is the interior.


Worst Features

You don't want to know what I think on this.

2004 Suzuki Aerio SX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love this car and with gas prices continuing to rise it is very affordable!


Best Features

I love the way it looks and so does everyone else, I get comments all the time on the style and color of this car. (electric blue)


Worst Features

The only improvement I would make would be that to add an armrest on the passenger side front seat.

2004 Suzuki Aerio SX AWD 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

If you are looking for 0-60 acceleration or fast and furious performance, don't get an AWD Aerio. The automatic tranny just won't allow it. The interior is well designed with the controls for everything placed just right. The car is very comfortable for my 6'3" 280 lb. frame. The factory radio is incredible and with the rear seats folded down I can fit more things in this than the old S-10 Blazer I had. This car really shines in bad weather. It handles snow and rain like a champ, and it eats up country dirt roads. All in all, with the interior room, all weather capability, and storage space, you almost feel like you are driving an SUV... except this has more standard features that most SUVs.


Best Features

The factory sound system is incredible. AWD makes the Aerio a true all-season performer. The people/cargo room is competitive with most small SUVs. Little things, like factory driving lights, rear wiper, adjustable up/down seats, split rear seat, etc., just makes you think Suzuki actually cares.


Worst Features

A sunroof option would be nice, but from what I hear it's not possible due to safety beams or something. And the tires are terrible. The prone to losing air Yokohama Geolanders may get you 18,000 miles if you're lucky. Everyone I know switches to Kumho's. Maybe have the Solus or Ecsta be the factory tire.

2004 Suzuki Aerio SX AWD 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I drive my Suzuki Aerio SX mostly for the 11 city highway miles to work. I took it up the mountain to snow ski and it exceeded all expectations on icy roads. We got 3 snowboards, a pair of skis, and four people inside comfortably. If you are used to high-powered imports, then this car will disappoint, but all four wheels really take you around the corners quickly even when conditions are bad.


Best Features

I love the AWD, 100,000 mile warranty, and tall / roomy interior.


Worst Features

Install a transmission that lets the 155hp's run. Better struts would make this 3,000 lb. car handle properly at high speeds. Why are tinted windows not an option?
