2002 Suzuki Baleno Wagon 1.8 from Australia and New Zealand
I have contributed to this site before with cars that I own.
However, a recent one week rental prompted me to add this review.
I have not driven such an appalling car for at least 20 years.
Where do I start?
Slow as a wet weekend.
Every panel in the car rattled. Sounded like a bag of marbles let loose in a biscuit tin.
Drank petrol at an alarming rate!!
Steering felt like I was attempting to lassoo a merecat with a long rubber band.
Ride was like two unattached pairs of wheels sloppily articulated somewhere in the middle.
I hasten to add that I have no axe to grind -I have owned a Vitara and a Swift along with countless Suzuki bikes, including the magnificent GT750.
Next time I hire, I will insist on a Corolla.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
