Pros: Cute Exterior
Cons: Digital Tachometer
Advice: A great value rideThis little great car has more than enough features for most of the consumer. It has more horsepower than any other city car in the states with the extra large headroom, indeed this is the city car that could accommodates the comfort for longer trip passengers. With the price of Korean, you can get a Japs, I think it’s a great deal.
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.
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.
Pros: Power, back seat leg room, easy to park and maneuver.
Cons: Not enough torque, small and tight in cargo and seating.
Advice: Compare this to other manufacturers' and make the choice that is right for you.I was recently lent this while my car was being serviced. It has good h.p. but lacks enough torque. It has good back seat leg room but little front seat. It lacks sufficient cargo room. It is tight on the hips, shoulders and head. It is not available with a sunroof. Nor is it available with traction control, although it has a full ladder frame. It had a 4-speed AOD transmission with lockout. I found out it is the shortest in its class which makes it the easiest to park and maneuver but small and tight. So, I leave the choice up to each individual. I suggest to compare it to other manufacturers and see which is right for you.
Pros: Great Headroom for a small car.
Cons: A bit of a radio/cd reach.
Advice: You might want to wait a bit to see how the vehicle ages, but if a small car in on your menu I'd consider this one. . . particularly if I were a larger or taller person.I drove this vehicle in the snow in Detroit for a week. Off the Interstate it performed admirable: good traction and nible handling in slippery conditions. Visibility was good and the dash layout - slightly unconventional- was easy to get used to. The service engine soon light would stay on in the cold weather until the engine heated up. The car was slightly sluggish at higher speeds, about what you'd expect from a smaller car. The cabin felt good lot's of room to stretch.
Pros: speed on the highway when you nedd it.
Cons: nothing but the price but for a good car i don't mind it's safe to drive
Advice: go check it out there great little carsfor a little car it really has alot of get up and go. getting into small places are so easy . and it looks so small from the outside, but when you sit inside the car it's a different story. you really have so much room. my son has so much room in the back seat to play w/ his toys and the pockets in the back let him keep his favorite toys in the car at all times thanks suzuki for coming out w/ a car so smart.
Cons: No arm rest
Advice: If you plan to own it for a while, buy it.Have owned the car for 6 months and I am still impressed. Given the cost, this car offers great size/roominess, speed/acceleration (manual trans), safety (See independent reviews), and so far reliability. Had heard negative things about Suzuki, but it looks like they got it right with this car. A lot of car for the money. Dealer service has been very good.
