Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: AWD with ESP
Cons: Sub Woofer is cheap
Advice: Try one. You'll like it.Great little car for the money. Handles great. You won't see yourself on every corner. AWD system with ESP works excellent. Pay the extra for the top of the line model. You won't be disapppointed.
Pros: smart pass keyless entry, steering wheel radio controls
Cons: no middle compartment, could use an extra cigarette lighter/ power source
Advice: If you need an AWD but can't afford the big bucks, this is your car.The vehicle handles great. The steering is very tight on the highway and responds very quickly. It does loosen up a bit around when turning but it still handles adequately there too. The acceleration is lacking a little bit but it's plenty to pass cars or make quick turns. I noticed that it seemed to be a little jerky when stepping on the gas but that's slowly improving as the car is broken in. There is a suprising amount of interior room and I love the controls on the steering wheel and the XM radio built in. It could use a compartment between the seats and some features like automatic door locking once you start driving but overall, it's a great value for the money and I highly recommend.
Pros: Probably it's style, comfort and safety features.
Cons: Right now nothing really.
Advice: Like with all vehicles treat it well and it will treat you well.I have a 2007 Reno Suzuki and I've drove it everywhere and I haven't had any problems so far I think it drives we'll and feels comfortable also it's my first car.
Cons: Engine Performance
Advice: Do Not Buy This VehicleThe only advise I can give to anyone is do not buy this vehicle. It may be pleasing to the eye with the nice enterior but mutiple engine problems that no Isuzu dealership seems to know how or want to repair. Very sluggish, transmisson issues, fuel pump issues, engine light and tire light issues. To top it off the resale value is as bad as it gets. Bought my Verona for $16K, a year later was offered less than half that amount by 5 different dealerships. Once your in it, you can't get out of it for a very long time.
Pros: The Color of the car
Cons: Just about everything
Advice: DONT BUY!!!Ive had this car for about a month and a half any everything possible has went wrong with this car. This is a horrible car. DONT BUY IT!
Cons: Not very fast
Advice: Buy one if you want an affordable, safe, somewhat sporty vehicle.I have only owned mine for 3 days but it sure beats my old car (a 2001 Neon). The features are amazing compared with the price. I love the fact that it is AWD and comes with just about every safety feature available. Its not the fastest car but has sufficient power. I like the look and feel of the car.
Advice: If you want a small AWD, buy one.There are better choices out there, unless you want AWD with Traction & Stability Control and great gas milage. What other (non-hybrid) AWD gets better than 24/30 mpg? 143 hp does not make this a sports car, but you can safely merge into traffic and keep up. In bad weather you can pass almost everyone on the road. The list of features on the Sport is impressive. The sound system shakes the earth.
