Best daily driver ever for commutes and errands
Replacexed wheel bearings, battery, alternator & tires (8). that's it And of course using Mobil 1 (5k chgs) and valve drive belt.
Most efficient car ever owned. Still gets 50 mpg after 180k miles. Running cost, including damages (killed 2 deer) maintenance, and upkeep and depreciation (cost $5885 new is under 8c per mile and getting better. Has hauled bricks, TV, plastics parts, machine molds and race tires (8 at a time) without complaint.
Do have Suzuki GTi suspension - raced the GTi in IMSA Firehawk - and seats so I have no trouble beating traffic, interstate or not. And I don't have to buy batteries. Suzuki ought to offer this car again. I've owned over 130 cars and this is the only one more than 2 years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
