Summary:

I would buy this car anywhere, except in my home country

Faults:

I only discovered that there was no oil in both gear boxes when I had it serviced outside the authorized service station. After adding oil to both gear boxes and coronas, it has become a totally different car, less noise and very smooth. However, I failed to find an email for Suzuki Japan to issue a complaint regarding its local service stations.

General Comments:

It's a pretty nice drive, looks and feels elegant inside and out.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
