Summary:

Possibly a good car for a good price

Faults:

2004 model year.

My vehicle had problems with "cold-starting". The dealership couldn't determine what was wrong with my car. Suzuki finally replaced my car's computer and the problem seems to be resolved.

I was traveling on a very hot day and my check engine light and check oil light came on, and my car stalled out. I called the service center and checked my oil. Currently my car is at the service center and they do not know what is wrong with it.

The back seats are uncomfortable and the seat belts "dig" into the neck of whomever is seated in the back.

General Comments:

The problems I am having probably denote that my car is simply a lemon.

However, the back seats are truly uncomfortable. When you test drive, have the sales person drive while you sit in the back.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Well, this car is made by Daewoo and is soley based off the Leganza plaform. The Verona is basically an updated Leganza which is not very well known in the USA. Daewoos are much more widely accepted in Korea. Suzuki is a good brand of car and I would think that the Verona is a reflection of that. I have had several Suzukis and never had any trouble out of them.
