2004 Suzuki Forenza - S (M5)
Cons: No keyless, cruise
Advice: Get the stick.Not a bad deal for the price. Expect 22-26 on the highway and 18-22 in the city. I like the car enough to start a web site called www.forenzamotorsports.com , and the reason was to show people you can get cool parts for a Forenza. We have a Forenza Cold Air Intake, Forenza Carbon Fiber Dash, Lowering Springs for Forenza, Forenza Exhaust...Forenza Body Kit ( Forenza Ground Effects )..so do not buy a Honda because you think there are no parts for this car. There is!!!!

2005 Suzuki Forenza - LX (M5) Sedan
Pros: the interior setup.
Cons: lack of power
Advice: if your looking for value and reliable transportation with a bit of looks...then this is your vehicle.The vehicle is great. It can't be beat...you get more for your dollar. My only complain would be the lack of power during take off. The vehicle's stopping was very impressive as well as the way it handle cornering. Overall the vehicle is definately a great investment.
2005 Suzuki Forenza - S (M5) Wagon
Pros: Driver's cockpit is simple
Cons: Two Ashtrays are such a waste (This IS 2005) Replace with cupholders or other storage.
Advice: Go with the 5 speed if you can. I found the automatic a little weak.Purchased a silver 'S' wagon with a 5 speed two weeks ago. Very pleased so far. 30 mpg on each of 2 fill-ups. I must say that it is a very 'sexy' looking car and once it was home, the looks grew on me even more. I'm looking forward to stuffing it full and loading up the roof rack for a trip at the end of the month.

2005 Suzuki Forenza - LX (M5) Wagon
Pros: Nice features / standard items for the $$$$
Cons: Fuel economy and uncomfortable front driver seats
Advice: If you live in rural america could be an okay purchasePurchased a 2005 Suzuki Forenza LX Wagon with 4 speed auto trans and 4 wheel abs. Vehicle offers a standard features pakage that impresses. The vehicle unfortunately is underpowered and fuel economy in city driving is bad. I have owned a lot of vehicles and this car being manufactured in 2005 is an embarrasment with the fuel economy performance. If you push the engine or if you baby it in stop and go city driving I am seeing 13.5 to 14.5 Miles per Gallon. This is unacceptable in the world we live in today.
2005 Suzuki Forenza - S (M5) Sedan
Pros: Stereo system
Cons: sluggish acceleration, buzzy whiney engine when pressed to limit
Advice: Shop around, in my area the price range between dealers was around $2,000 differenceThe Forenza has a relatively smooth ride for a smaller car. It's suspension does not totally isolate you from bumps and jars in the road, but it does not transmit much jarring to the occupants either. The engine noise and road noise are low, except when really stepping on the accelerator, then the engine becomes buzzy, and whiney. It could use a little more power on the engine too, as well as better fuel economy. The nice thing about the Forenza is that the quality of fit and finish is flawles!! No rattles or weird noises at all!! Great stereo system!! Has nice features for the money!!
