About Suzuki Forenza

Like their mechanical clone, the Suzuki Reno hatchback, the Suzuki Forenza sedan and wagon also are manufactured in Korea by Daewoo and boast Italian styling, one trim level with loads of standard equipment, few options, attractive pricing and an outstanding warranty package. The pair share common Reno downsides, as well, notably an aging platform design, no higher-performance version, only mediocre fuel economy and the absence of features like traction control or stability control -- items offered by most of the competitors, including the Chevrolet Cobalt, Honda Civic, Kia Spectra, MAZDA3 and Toyota Corolla. Ironically, Suzuki's own SX4 crossover utility vehicle and new-for-2008 SX4 Sport sedan have become the Forenza's most direct rivals.

Pros: "Amenities inside, Great for learners."

Cons: "Performance, replacement parts availability, mpg"

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

"Perhaps the worst mpg for a 4 cyl. on the road, 26hwy at 110+/-8hp? If its get up and go you want, dont think about it. If you thought your chevy cobalt or cavalier is a drag, think again! I had a cavalier before this and I miss it every single day. Everything else is ok except replacing parts, just not everything is offered online or in parts stores like the strut springs. Its comfortable inside i dont know about the back seat though but up front it's decent. Amenities i would rate above average but its performance kills me, I cant get over it. The only reason I still have this thing on wheels is because its paid off."

Pros: "Cute car. Sound system is decent."

Cons: "Unless you know a good mechanic forget it!"

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

"I have had multiple service problems. I have had to return to the dealer eight times for the same problem. The "check engine light " turns itself on and off. Most service problems can be related to lack of training. Recently the drivers door mechanism broke and I couldn't get out. The dealer doesn't stock most parts and you have to wait days for parts."
