Minor tweaks add steering-wheel audio controls to the Convenience Package and Bluetooth wireless connectivity to the options list while the sunroof gets eliminated from the Reno's already-meager available-extras roster.

About Suzuki Reno

Endowed with a bit more aggressively styled bodywork than the Suzuki Forenza on which it's based, the five-door, front-drive Suzuki Reno hatchback has room, ride comfort and lots of standard features, but a somewhat dated mechanical package. With a very attractive base price compared to the Honda Fit, Kia Spectra5, MAZDA3, Nissan Versa and Toyota Matrix, and backed by a truly outstanding warranty, it offers budget-minded buyers the chance to acquire a practical and reliable new car. However, seizing that opportunity requires accepting a one-trim-fits-all package with performance and handling characteristics that fall behind many of the current segment leaders. Given that the same holds true for its resale value, maximizing your investment in a Reno also means being prepared to live with it for a while.

"I will start off by saying that I bought my Reno in 05 brand new 14 miles on it.I do alot of mixed driving,the average gas milage I get is usually 22-25mpg.I have the oil changed in it every 3000 miles,I have only 2 incidents that were brought to my attention by way of a recall letter to me.The first was for the water pump mounting bracket,and the other was for a headlight connection. Both of these were taken care of by Suzuki.I now have 49,000 miles on the car and have had trouble free driving.You really have to hand it to Suzuki for taking on the responsibility of a car that started as a Daewoo/GM project."

Pros: "great value, versatile, comfortable, reliable"

Cons: "base model has no cruise control"

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

"It's not fancy, and there is nothing specifically outstanding or "fun" about this car, but it is the best car I have ever owned. It is nice looking, spacious, comfortable, and reliable (haven't had to do a single thing outside of the routine maintenance). The cargo space is incredibly versatile. It's truly amazing how much you can fit into such a seemingly small car. The legroom is also great in front and back. Car performs and handles well. It is quiet and has pretty good pick-up for a 4 cyl. Great Gas Mileage--I average about 30 mpg (that's more than the advertised amount). I have the base model, which has power doors and windows, but no cruise control. That's the only thing I wish it had. Other than that, this car is perfect!!"

"Bought mine with 6k miles on it. Added cruise control, lighter drive pulley, and high flow exhaust. I love this car, great quality you'd expect from suzuki. You'll be hard pressed to find an equally equiped car at this price. I'm 6'1 and I had no problems driving this across the US. I've taken it on the german Autobahn, no stability problems at 130+. Yes this car goes 130+ I recommend this to anyone on a budget looking to get the most bang for the buck."
