Rusted and Busted
By Magicdog39 on


1999 Suzuki Esteem GL 4dr Wagon


This car was bought used. All the CV joints needed replacement three years ago. The outer on the right side exploded and left my wife stranded miles from home. Shortly after this the sub frame just fell apart from rust. The new sub frame just fell apart from rust last week just like the first one did. We also have had to replace the radiator and heater core. I have also had to put six outer door handles on this junk car. Right now brand new brake rotors, and lower control/ball joints are on the way by UPS for it. Parts for this car are expensive. Don't buy one even if its the last car on earth! Next month I will be buying a nice used Honda.

Best Features

The aftermarket Sony CD player, and Polk speakers that I put in the car myself are nice.

Worst Features

What can I say. This car needs work in most every area. This will never happen. Spend your money buying some other known good brand.
