Summary:

Be very very careful

Faults:

Passenger air bag light came on at 4000 km and 110000 km.

Replaced tires every 30000 km.

Passenger front window switch at 110000 km.

Front edge of the bumper is too low to the ground; it hits speed bumps and has been ripped off twice now.

Fog lights burn out constantly.

AWD clutches burnt out at 65000 km.

Threw a connecting rod at 115000 km.

General Comments:

I bought this car because I wanted something that was better on gas than my 5.7 L Silverado. It was great on gas and handled great in the snow. It had a great ride and had lots of room.

I had my oil changed every 5000 km religiously, and at about 115000 km the connecting rod broke!! I am very disappointed in Suzuki, as I was their biggest fan up until my car blew up. I had no major car crippling malfunctions till now.

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