Why you shouldn't buy an SX4
By Greg Myers on


2007 Suzuki SX4 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Rally Package (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought the SX4 for my wife as a Christmas present in 2006 . The colors was beautiful and it had a manual trans . (Her favorite ). Since then , the engine failed at 30,000 miles , the airbag module($1800)failed , it has thrown numerous check engine lights and and now has a bad catalytic converter . Guess what , if you aren't aware , your emissions warranty runs out at 80,000 miles and there's no getting around it. The trouble code is for a catalytic flow efficiency problem that is more likely an oxygen sensor fault like Nissan has just experienced . The dealer installed cost of the new cat is just over $900.00. Do it yourselfers can get it at the dealer for about $500.00.

Best Features

The copper paint is very nice. The AWD is great in the bad weather. Visibility is great.

Worst Features

Poorly geared, needs a 6th gear on the manual or higher 5th gear. The brakes need beefier calipers , it does not brake well. The powertrain is weak and is the weakest link in this vehicle. The seats are very uncomfortable. The stereo is poor.
