Pros: Available 4 wheel drive for the snow.
Cons: Needs better gas milage than 25mpg.Great reliable car with 4 wheel drive. Just needs to get better gas mileage. Fun to drive, easy access, very quiet. A fabulous used-car buy!!
sometimes less is more
Pros: awd w/ three settings
Cons: cheap floor mat holder-dealer ignorance re:wiper size.Less space than my Voyager. More fun to drive. Less mpg than I expected. More dependable in snowy climates. Easy to park. No important problems after 3+ years. I might buy another if they improve details and mpg. My lady friend loves it. Looks like a baby high priced SUV. :-)
Could use improvement
Cons: interior-The fabric covering seats and lack of armrest.The interior needs a major upgrade.The choice of seat fabric is very find to to keep clean.The foam is crumpling underneath the seat.This leaves a pile of foam under drivers seat all the time. The drivers mirror is loose and wiggles around at highway speeds.I will not purchase another Suzuki product.
Pros: Sporty look, roomy back seat.
Cons: see aboveThe secret is the gas cap never fits very well so your engine light comes on and stays on costly mistake thinking the Catalatic converter was bad, anyway to fix it 'NOPE' ,the lumbar support broke the first week we owned the car. Wheels/rims have to be replaces often then bend easily. Several recalls. And bumpers are easly damaged backing up into something. Over all the cost of this car you get what you pay for it, actually has more power then you read about, gas mileage is also better. Mine is almost paid for will be good for another five years then I will go back to a American Truck that by then may get better gas mileage. Also be fore you ship a car to another state make sure this car was sold there, and can be serviced there, this model was never sold in Hawaii, and is serviced by a Toyota dealership garage.
Motorcycle now car!
Pros: The amount of room inside from a small car.
Cons: nothingI purchased used to save money on gas from a Jeep (still have) & this Aerio is great! Love the ride for traveling, little loose for the twisties. Power is great for a car that gets 30MPG average on mountain back roads, highway & traffic. Plenty of torque for the hills. Tons of room when seats are down & rear seats have great room for adults.
