    2005 Suzuki Aerio SX - w/AWD AWD AWD Hatchback

    Pros: AWD

    Cons: Beeping noise if you don't buckle your seat belt

    Advice: Suzuki is little known, but their quality, warranty, and price are better than your other options

    I test drove the Aerio and the best thing that I could say about it was that it handed phenomenally. I found myself taking corners in this car at a much higher rate of speed just to see how hard I could push it. 155 horsepower may not seem like too much but when you step on the gas, you get going. I loved the new upholstery for 05 and the seats are so comfortable. I'm 6' 200 lbs and I can sit in the back seat easily. Like any other shopper, I shopped around at other dealers and no one could come close to matching the amount of comfort, safety and performance features for even close to the price. Throw in all wheel drive in a car for under $18000 and it's a no brainer

    2004 Suzuki Forenza - S (M5)

    Pros: Seats

    Cons: I hate how the check engine light keeps coming on every 1000 miles

    Advice: Do NOT buy this vehicle unless you plan to visit the mechanic every month or so. The car has stalled out on me mid-driving (not a a stop either, I was moving) twice. (Good thing I wasnt on a busy road)

    I thought when I test drove this vehicle it would be a great car for the money. Comfortable, mid-sized, and handled easily.

    2002 Suzuki Aerio SX - (M5)

    Pros: Cargo space

    Cons: A few sqeaks and rattles

    Advice: Take a look at this car even though not often mentioned by the car publications

    The main reason I bought the car was the cargo room. I take road trips with 3 small dogs plus food and gear for 2 everything fits. I have gotten 17 bags of woodchip mulch in the back as well as 45 1 gallon plants plus landscape supplies. With its combination of price, cargo room, features and good MPG I highly reccommend this car. A better value than other small wagons and much better a mini SUV. I have had no quality issues, but unfortunately I bought before Suzuki upgraded the warranty program.

    2004 Suzuki Aerio - LX (M5) FWD Sedan

    Pros: Great performance & economy

    Cons: It's not gorgeous.

    Advice: Buy it.

    I own a 400 hp pickup & a $57M Caddie, so when I was given this car while my pickup was being serviced, I almost fainted. However, after driving the hell out of this little car for 4 days; I just wish I could justify buying one, just for the fun of it. It looks small from the outside, but it has plenty of room inside; alot more than my Caddie! It drives like the devil itself. I had it up to 80 mph & it felt like it could go alot faster without much effort. It handles well & whether turning or stopping, it always felt like it was under good control. I didn't compute the mileage but after 4 days of use, it took less than $5.00 to fill up the tank. I had a plain Jane model which isn't gorgeous, but I've seen more expensive models that looked pretty good. Again, considering what I'm used to driving, this little car left me flabergasted. I can't comment on how well it holds up after serveral years though.

    2004 Suzuki Forenza - LX (M5)

    Pros: The look of the console. It is all very modern

    Cons: I wish I had gotten the leather seats instead

    Advice: Test drive it on the interstate to see if it is your speed level first if you tend to go fast anyway.

    Great. I like to speed, so this car doesn't have as much get up and go as my last car, but it can still edge out the slow people at a stoplight. It is adorable and handles really well. I have driven it in snow and rain and had no problems. It turns well on a dime. Great car.
