1998 Suzuki Esteem 4 cylinder. from North America
This is has been a very reliable car for me
I can't say that anything noticeably bad happened with this car.
I had noticed a tendency from time to time for the transmission to rev up as if it had shifted down suddenly. I took the car in to get it checked out, but the problem didn't happen when the guy test-drove it, so it wasn't fixed. There seemed to be no particular pattern or reason for this problem, but it's possible that I'd just worn out the transmission a little. Who knows?
The seats are incredibly uncomfortable, especially over long trips.
The car has had no mechanical problems.
It gets great gas economy.
It has handled many long distance trips very well.
A very reliable car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
