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!"

"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!"
"I bought my 07 Forenza new in 2007. it is still running fine with over 90K miles. i drove it all over the US with no issue. it drives great in the snow.
i replaced the following since i bought it:
1-new 4 tires at 60K
2-New brakes (front and Back) at 80K
3-regular oil change every 3 months"

"I just traded in my car, 2006 Suzuki Forenza, for a new car but I wanted to let everyone know this car was a very good car. I traveled everywhere in this car and it was very reliable and comfortable. I had it for 7 years before the brakes needed changed, in the front. The back never needed changed. I never had any major issues with the car. I was told Suzuki went out of business, so good luck getting a new one but the old one was a great car. I actually would have loved to keep it but needed a down payment/trade in for a newer car. :("
"I got this car and paid $8000 for it when it is worth $2000 I have had to replace the tires a few times after having this car for 2-3 years. This car takes a lot of gas and there isn't a Suzuki dealership where I live. My advise is to NEVER buy a car that doesn't have a dealership in your town. This car is "throw away money" Good luck."
