"I bought this car in 2006 from Carmax. First 90 days was OK. Then it began having major problems. It would stall in traffic, die going down the highway at 70 mph. It would rev up 1500 rpm and then die down the same and do that 7 or 8 times per minute for hours. I had the electronics worked over a dozen times. At one point the tranny failed. Last big bill was $3000+ in Dec 08 and it was in the shop 2 months. I had a service contract that covered most of it but I was out the car so many times I would have gladly traded but was upside down $2500. DO NOT BUY A VERONA FOR ANY REASON. I would not even recommend any Suzuki."
"I have had nothing but problems with this car. The trim on the handles has peeled off and it cuts and cuts deep. Have had the car checked out more times then I can count and they still can't explain why that car stalls. So it stalls for no reason. The car reves up with out touching the gas. I hate this car."
"I bought my '05 Verona used; it had been a rental car. I have had no major problems at all. Our local dealer does very well servicing this car. I LOVE the ride - very quiet and comfortable; great for long trips. I feel I got a lot of bang for my buck - lots of bells and whistles. I really hadn't even wanted to test drive it, but when I did, I was extremely impressed. Hopefully it will continue to be a good car; if not, I'll trade it in just like the VW I traded in for this."
