2004 Suzuki Forenza - EX (A4)
Pros: Leather seats and sound system...
Cons: The rear of the car needs to be restyled
Advice: Good solid car, and warranty!My EX is great. The leather feels very expensive for a vehicle like this...I looked at a Hyundai Elantra GT, and this call just felt so much better, interior wise, and the engine was much quiter....
2002 Suzuki Aerio SX - (M5)
Pros: Back seat room
Cons: No arm rest
Advice: Look at other cars first, because once you drive this you will not want any other carWe already have a 2001 Vitara, and were surprised that this car has more room than the SUV does. I have been impressed with not only the gas milege but the ability to get in and out of place with ease. I love the room in the back, and unlike the Vitara I can drive (6ft tall 300lbs) and my father who is 6'2 can sit behind me with no problem. I totally love this car, and I am in the process of buying the 2004 version.
2004 Suzuki Forenza - S (M5)
Pros: everything associated with sound system
Cons: no cruise control
Advice: get the extended warranty, original 7 yr 100000 only covers engine and transmissionFor the most part, a great car, only a couple things missing. No keyless entry and no cruise control on S model. Everything else is great, a lot of fun to drive, has many nice features, great 8 speaker sound system, cd and tape deck, back seat arm rest, 2 12 v plugin jacks, lots of headroom, very quiet and responsive.
2002 Suzuki Aerio SX - (M5)
Pros: Drives very smoothly.
Advice: Compare it with the competition, can't bet the value of this car.Very fun to drive! 'Best Pick' by www.highwaysafety.org, for safety! Very economical on gas. Low emissions, better than what is required(CA). JD POWER best value award, it is very similar to the Toyota Matrix or Pontiac Vibe, but, it costs thousands less! It has many standard features, most of which the competitors charge as options. If you are in the market for a small car, try it and you'll be glad you did. Looks cool, too!
2003 Suzuki Aerio - GS (M5) FWD Sedan
Cons: The Noise
Advice: Don't botherLoud, abnoxious, slow, top heavy little teenie tiny minature car. Although it seems larger on the inside than outside it really is not. The 145hp engine is loud and I mean LOUD! The car justs feels like a disposable car. Pass it up for anything except maybe a Kia.
2003 Suzuki Aerio SX - (M5) FWD Hatchback
Pros: Appearance & gas mileage
Cons: Cant see the front of the hood
Advice: Dont hesitate-buy itIt has a very responsive & quick pick up has nice turning radius,I get plenty of stares & (what kind of car is that)-It is the first smaller car i have owned & I love it. Highly recomend it.Plenty of cargo space even for my wheel chair,with the back seats left up.
2003 Suzuki Aerio - S (M5) FWD Sedan
Pros: The sound system
Advice: Don't judge this car by its cover.Overall I found the Aerio very fun to drive(much to my suprise). The 5-speed is easy to drive and gives you plenty of pep. The cockpit is stylish easy to use w/a digital instrument panel. Pletty of space inside and a large trunk. The stereo/CD player w/6 speakers is quite powerful, better than most cars costing twice this price. I had a problem with the headrest it seemed to be to curved and to far back. The only other thing I disliked was the fact I couldn't adjust the height of the drivers seat.
