Pros: "I'll drive it until I can't stand the noise."

Cons: "badly engineered drive train no solultions"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"Bought the car new. At about 30,000 miles the manual transmission failed. No new or rebuilt transmissions are available. The tranny is very loud. The orbital gear is warped. I know of others with the same car and problem. Car runs fine but it sounds like a big worn out 2.5 ton truck. Very loud in the car and can't even hear the radio. Bad engineering in an otherwise good car."

Like the Energizer Bunny it keeps going and going

Pros: "Energizer Cars they keep running & running"

Cons: "AC on these cars get old and need work"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This is my second Suzuki Aureo and I would get another one but they no longer make them. These cars never give a problem. except for the usual wear and tear of a car and the needed service they need they just keep running and running and running. Oil Changes, Tire replacements Tune up occasionally battery replacement. They are the best Cars I have ever owned. The only problem and concern I have with the Suzuki is the AC units go out on them. Other than that they are like the Energizer Bunny they Keep Going and Going and Going!"

Pros: "Value"

Cons: "Tires"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"One of the best values if you're utilitarian about car travel (ie commuting for the lowest price tag). One major flaw that i've heard from most owners are the tires. Something about this car damages the tires. You get flats every 20,000 miles or so."

Pros: "great price and fun to drive and reliable"

Cons: "factory tires only lasted about 25000 miles"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I am the original owner of this car and other than the normal maintenance required, I haven't had a single mechanical failure with 168,000 and counting! It's too bad they stopped making this car or at least shipping it to the US. The only thing I missed having was a cruise control. It had everything but that."

Cons: "tires,brakes,electric problems"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"From my own personal experience: A good urban scoot about. Not a good car for long trips or winter conditions. Very basic. Have owned it for 3yrs and hasn't let me down. Does require a high degree of maintenance brakes, tires, etc. Repairs are affordable , but sensors are expensive to replace. They seem to be a bit retro for this day and age. They're zippy , but not powerful. Overall they're ok , but they come from a past era."
