Pros: Solid construction
Cons: needs more power
Advice: great car for everyday drivingI've had the car for 3 years now, no problems ever! safe, fun to drive, solid build. I've had Z28's, a corvette, Honda Prelude, VW Passat etc, this is the most reliable car i've ever owned. Just change the oil and put gas in it, nothing else needed. I've read of some engine prob's but i've never had any. I do change the trans fluid every 20,000 and run synthetic oil as well. My girlfriend liked the car so much she traded her old eclipse in for one. Now theres two aerio's in my garage next to my Suzuki Hayabusa as well.
Pros: The design
Cons: manual transmission
Advice: You are not going to regreatI love this car, looks small, but it has a lot of room in the interior, it's design is wonderful. It is a very economic car, gas last a lot.
Pros: Easy to drive
Cons: Quality, Dependability
Advice: DO NOT BUY! Tell your friends and hopefully they will tell there's.With in the year and 9 months I've owned the car, I've had to replace the front bumper, best of all replace the engine due to a rod going out. Luckily it had the 7 year/100,000 mile drive train warranty or it would of cost me $7,000.00! The dealership where I purchased the car just told me my 3 year/36,000 mile warranty expired and failed to mention the other warranty. After checking the Suzuki web site, I confirmed having the better warranty and took the car to another Suzuki dealer. It is currently being worked on. Good luck!
Pros: interior room
Advice: Watch the patches on the front & rear bumpers or you will lose them.I really like the car and the way that it handles.
Pros: The radio is very nice
Cons: No arm rest
Advice: Think twice about buying this carI had the car four months and I'm finding it's not a bad car except every morning waiting for the cold light to go out so that it shifts into overdrive. I also found out that the metal on this car is very weak if your hit by someone at very low speeds. The air condition is not so up to par, and I found out that you can't get Twenty-Five miles to the gallon around town.
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.
