Reliable and extremely cheap on gas
Replaced tires at 170,000 km.
Replaced lower control arms at 180,000.
Excellent car! Wonderful on gas, and extremely reliable (that's why I bought two!). The only reason I had to let the first one go (also a 2000) was because it was written off in an accident. I had that one for 2 years, and only changed the oil. The second one, I replaced the tires and the lower control arms. No other issues. Oil changed regularly, this car has given me some great years, but alas, another accident has meant that I will have to let this car rest.
Great handling in the city; okay handling at 110+ kmh. Fun to drive, really has a lot of zip. Love driving this car. If Suzuki still made it, I would buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
