2003 Suzuki Liana Gli 1.6L petrol 4-line 16v


Reasonably Good


When I got the car brand new from the dealer, there are some unimaginable faults. Firstly, the wheel alignment is out (even after rectifying once and till present, it is still veering left), faulty lock in rear left door, and poor pre-delivery polishing.

General Comments:

The new face-lift was a great! Especially the hatchback. Spacious interior, and has a ample boot space.

The high seats allow easy entering and exiting by old folks and mommy-carrying-babies. Kerb weight is around 1.8 ton which quite heavy for a 1.6L engine.

The only setback is that I'm clocking the fuel consumption at 1l=9km. And also even sadder that the VVT engine version is not brought into Singapore.

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

I'm sorry I made a mistake on the kerb weight. It is actually 1,180kg for the 1.6AT 5-door (2WD)

Y your fuel consumption quite high? do you travel a lot in city areas?

I'm clocking an average of 10.8km/L now. More on city driving than highway driving after 9 months now. Already installed the Cyclone2 and manufacturer also gave Denso iridium plugs. Recently made them changed the disc brakes which constantly gives a "snapping" sounds...for free.

A Good value for money car


The air-con vent selector had a minor defect. Got it fixed within 1 hour from local Suzuki agent. Impressive service!!

General Comments:

This car has very good handling and I love most the digital displays. I have done 800Km driving without feeling the usual fatigue you get out of a Sedan, because it has a large viewing windscreen and the diver has a wider view. It's sturdy body is very stable while overtaking larger vehicles. Its engine is very quiet. Interior noise is kept to very minimum even landing on road bumps. I give 8 out of 10!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
