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.

"We bought the car at 16K miles, and are trading it in at 45K. The only reason is because of a new addition to our family, and need a minivan. The only thing I've noticed with this car that would be a con is the whining I hear from the power steering. Not sure why. Full fluid, new tires, and belt is fine. Never had any problems, just a weird sound it makes. Gas mileage is ok as well. About 21 MPG. Not great, but maybe because it's a 2.0 liter."

"My friend owns a 2007 suzuki reno and it has less then 40k miles on it and they already had to get a new auto transmission in it from the dealer. The ride is rough and bumpy. So many blind spots and very hard to see backing up.. Very bad gas mpg around the city and highways.. Just a cheap quality car.."
