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.
great car !
Cons: seatsgood on gas , peppy , handles well
Pros: The smooth
Advice: Test drive it and you'll fall in love with it.All I can say is 'whatta car'!! It's got power, a very smooth ride and the quality is outstanding. Riding to work early in the morning it's like the Kisashi is just floating along...it's so quiet and smooth. Traded in my SX4, which I always said it was the best car I ever owned but the Kisashi is exceeding my expectations. And everywhere I go, I get compliments on the beauty of the car. It's a love affair. Test drive one and you'll see why I'm saying this.
Pros: AWD; surprisingly alot of power for this little car. :)
Cons: Blind spot on driver's side between side window and front window. Have to really look carefully.
Advice: I'm happy with my purchase; it's small yet comfy. Very economicalAwesome performance; bought it for travelling up to the mtn. Never have had to put on chains...handles great in snow. I'm glad I bought this car!!
