Edmunds' Expert Review

  • Low price, smooth power delivery, comfortable ride quality, strong brakes, attractive interior design, simple controls.
  • Weak acceleration, sloppy handling in the corners, lots of wind noise, some low-grade interior materials, no side curtain airbags.

A low price and a standard six-cylinder engine may make the Verona appealing to bargain hunters, but most shoppers will be happier with a better-performing four-cylinder Accord or Camry.

2005 Highlights

New standard features for 2005 include a tire-pressure monitoring system, side-impact airbags, a trunk-mounted tool case and iridium spark plugs. A power sunroof is now standard on the LX model.

Our Suzuki Verona has had so many problems its crazy. We are having problems with stalling,and let me add Suzuki is not willing to own up to it. I think it is a unsafe car and I'm not the only one.

Loved Car @ 1st, Now Suffering Many Issues!!!

LX 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)
We loved this car @ 1st. We've had it 3 yrs. It's an 05 we bought in 07. Shortly after purchasing the back bumper was hit in a parking lot. Instead of only bending the bumper, a 2 1/2 ft. long piece of paint peeled off and fell. The check engine light comes on frequently & took it to the shop the first couple of times, to find out that "nothing was wrong". It still comes on and goes off all the time. A month ago it started jerking while driving, at random times. Sometimes within 5 mins, sometimes we drive all day before it happens, sometimes it won't at all. Now the key won't turn in the ignition 75% of time. After trying several times it finally will. Is this happening to anyone else???

S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my Verona last year and I now have about 9,000 miles and I haven't really had any problems. Its only been back to the dealership for scheduled maintenances and once because the transmission had to be replaced. The car used to spuck and skit all over the place until the transmission was replaced at 3,000 miles at no extra cost. Now it runs like a gem. It has a smooth, quiet, relaxing ride, with a fairly responsive inline-6. The interior has high quality materials with a pretty decent 6-speaker audio. If you are looking for a midsize sedan and can't go over $20,000, I don't think it gets much better than this.

Should I lease or buy a 2005 Suzuki Verona?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
