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."

Good first car!!

"Bought this car used had 100k miles on it, it now has 124k. I've had no major issues with this car other than the usual tune up, tire change, etc. Not bad on gas, gets you where you need to be, love the body and room inside the car, drives smooth with good tires on it, radio system it comes with sounds great. I really have no complaints about this car it's my baby!"

"I got this car at 94000 miles and it has done nothing but break down on me over and over again. Each time I get it fixed, it breaks down almost immediately again. I hate this car so much but it's really comfy to drive in."

The forenza made the 1000 mile round trip to Minnesota without problems!

"This car has been nothing but good to me! The forenza has been almost 100% reliable. This car can go the distance and back wherever you need it to go. You can tell the car was made cheap. But that's the point of the car, cheap yet reliable. The forenza gives you a great value for your money. Parts are getting hard to find because of suzuki going out of business, but the parts are somewhat cheap. It has so far completed every task I have asked it todo and more. I give this car a 8/10 overall because the car does what suzuki says it does. Also, the car looks sharp! It is something I'm not asshamed to drive. But don't forget this is a cheap car. There is not a lot of features, but it gets the job done and then does it the next day. Love this car and I plan to drive it until the doors fall off!"
