A fun, but practicle car you will volunteer to drive down the milk bar to get the milk!
Clutch adjustment nut slipped.
I forced the ashtray into its receiver with out checking the setup and now its stuck.
Fantastic. Versatile and practical. You must pay the extra for the 4 door to receive these benefits.
Security and keyless entry great.
Stereo is rubbish. For 2002 model vehicle it is ridiculous that Suzuki still haven't worked it out. Most of their models have dud stereos and or poor speakers/positioning. The rear speakers are high mounted in the rear pillars so sound isn't muffled by cargo, but no base at all. Absolute pain to put better speakers in this position and sound still not great. Front speakers are just tweeters. I am looking at mounting new speakers in the tail gate.
No adjustable steering either - bearable though on two 800km trips.
Seats are good.
Motor fabulous. as per Suzuki standard, very zippy (60kw in 900kg car) with good gear box combo it can push back in the seat just enough to scare older people (I'm 35).
Annoyed with clutch accelerator combination when changing gears - clutch is either in or out and accelerator is either on or off making it hard to drive smoothly. This problem was not evident at the start so we will get that fixed. (pleasure to drive originally)
Does feel a little top heavy when cornering hard around town, but fine on the highway.
Tyres could be 10mm wider and the hubcaps are ridiculous.
I am 1.9m tall and plenty of room for car of this type.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
