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.
Motorcycle now car!
Pros: The amount of room inside from a small car.
Cons: nothingI purchased used to save money on gas from a Jeep (still have) & this Aerio is great! Love the ride for traveling, little loose for the twisties. Power is great for a car that gets 30MPG average on mountain back roads, highway & traffic. Plenty of torque for the hills. Tons of room when seats are down & rear seats have great room for adults.
great car !
Cons: seatsgood on gas , peppy , handles well
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.
Cons: red backlite on the radio is hard to read
Advice: get the touring package has a lot of options I wish I had gottenI have the CVT transmission which takes a little getting use to but has much better performance and is smoother than the 4 speed auto in the 2009, would've got the manual but I do a lot of stop and go driving. For a small econo car it's got some pep especially in the manual transmission setting. The AWD is great on snow and ice, but had to get snow tires the ones that come with aren't up to handling really bad ice/snow conditions (I live in Colorado)
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!!
Pros: Pretty much everything.
Cons: I do wish it got just a bit better gas mileage.
Advice: BUY ONE!I LOVE my Suzi!!! I have never been so happy with a car. This little thing has more room and power than anybody expects. It also handles really well. It also holds up VERY VERY well to rear end impact! While going about 45 mph I was hit from behind by a truck going approx. 70 mph It felt like he just bounced off of my bumper. I couldn't believe how little damage there was! If I was going out today to buy a new car it would most likely be another Reno.
