"I have had my car for almost ten years now and since I work from home, I have low mileage. But this car rides smoothly and has only had a battery change in all this time. I love the design and it is large enough for comfort. It has a cargo rack on top and the back can be let down to accommodate long and large packages. I usually keep my cars for twenty years and it looks like this will be just fine for another eleven years. I would recommend this car to anyone."

"I have bought this car when it had already 93,000 miles on it. It sounded a bit rough from the start, but I was able to have it back to good running order. I didnt replace a whole lot of mechanical parts other than the gasket seal and the transmission switch control. I like this car and I feel it is really under estimated from the value that most of these companies take it for. It rides real nice on curves because of its smaller design and handles really easy on the steering wheel when you go at least 90mph which I tried a few times. It does have a little bit of a lag when you go from 0-60..which for me, it takes 18 seconds but onces it gets pass 40 it takes off. I feel you would get more for your money if you buy this type of car than buying a brand that has ads all over the net and TV because I personally feel cars that are not well known from ads, are the best kept secret to own because they do not cost as much as a car that is too well known and that gives the company a way to jack up the price because everyone wants it. Overall, i feel this car is worth the money if you keep it up like any other car. Just only put Shell or Chevron Supreme gas, dont make it a habit of going over 70mph, and give it its daily tune up with higher graded stuff like Double plated spark plugs, Castrol GTX Oil, and K&N Air Filter. This is a fun car to drive with curves, no shaking of the steering wheel when hitting high speeds, and it does have enough leg room. Im 5ft 10 inches, and im able to lay my leg out comfortably. I would prefer this car to someone that is looking to down size, but wants a car to have fun in. I do think they could have done better job with the driver seat with power seats. It also has bucket seats which makes it a climb getting out because when you do sit in the car, it feel comfortable like your laying down."

"I love my Suzuki. It is a zippy little station Wagon that had done me well. It gets decent gas mileage, can carry my drum set around, and is super comfortable. I have an hour drive to work and it is a great car to be in for the drive. We have had to use our extended warranty a couple of times for some minor mechanical problems."

"Have it since new, Not one problem yet. I've got the manual transmission version. I'm amazed how good it's been. Sad Suzuki is pulling out the U.S. market, parts may be a problem in the future."

"Great car especially for trips. It has a smaller tank for gas, so it is relatively cheaper to fill. Great mpg as well. Keep it clean under the hood and it will last for years."

"Front end destroyed. Multiple problems with transmition. Exost leak on block. sheered off bolts on manfold and need to remove the block to fix. Not cost effective for repair. Better to trade in or sell and get a new car."
