"I've had so many problems with this car! I had to replace the engine, at my cost, before I even reached 80,000 miles. Suzuki wouldn't cover it because I was missing an oil change receipt (1 out of 5 years of maintenance). THe factory tires were aweful and were replaced soon after bying my car. Numerous issues with engine light always coming on. I'm charged a diagnosis fee every time they look at it, but am afraid that if I don't take it in immediately and something happens, Suzuki will decline to replace my new engine. There is only a couple dealers in my area that even service this car, and they are inconveniently 25 miles + from my home. I've replaced the gas cannister (again, not under warranty) and several other engine related things. Nothing at all was ever covered under warranty. I have receipts for over $8,000 of repairs in the just 5 years I've had the car (not counting regular maintenance). Also, a little annoyance: I often have to take the car in because my airbag light always comes on. Every time I go in they tell me that the wires come loose if things get under the seat, so I made sure not to store anything back there, but when I adjust my seat for driving, it comes loose again. Cosmetically, it's ok. There are only 1 1/2 cup holders in the front, which is weird and inconvenient for long trips or frequent carpools. My CD player will not play anymore.. radio still works though. It's very dissappointing because I take extremely good care of my vehicles. Although by my review, you wouldn't think so. I've done all scheduled maintenence on time, all iol changes, tire rotations, engine cleanses, etc., but the car just isn't made well. I also have a short in my fog lights. Tried to have the bulbs replaced, but that didn't work. I don't have more money to put into it to repair these small annoyances, so I'm just waiting anxiously for the day I can pay it down enough to not be upside down, and get rid of this car! Bought it brand new. I DO NOT recommened this car at all! Buy anything else! I should have done more research before I decided to buy."

"Mostly dependable but if anything breaks you can't by major replacement parts without going trough a Suzuki dealer. That in itself is not usually bad with some other brands but Suzuki wants over $400 for the rear shocks alone and there are no after market company that makes shocks. Front shocks cost $450, not counting installation trough, Suzuki dealer. Trottle position sensor went bad just out of warrenty and will cost $322 trough Suzuki and no one carries it in the after market. November 2011 some parts that an online company sells for this vehicle are no longer going to be sold because Suzuki has stopped suppling parts for this car to them. The other fact is that Suzuki only sold this car two years and stopped and according to a local parts dealer probably made less than 200,000 Veronas since no after market companies make replacement parts."

"I have had several cars in my life and have never had a car go out so quickly, with parts that were very hard to find. Every where I call to get estimates for repairs don't work on this model. I have talked to Suzuki dealers about the verona and have been told that this is the worst mistake that Suzuki has made, that is why they only made it for like 3 or 4 years."
