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.
Great little car ... and cute, too
Cons: The only weakness I can see is that the paint is very thin, thought the color is great.I love this car. It's fun to drive and very comfortable, with better seats than Honda or Subaru (our last two cars). It has a fine Garmin navigation system, and true keyless operation ... and the sound system is much better than H & S, too. We're at 3200 miles now, and getting about 29 mpg avg.
