2001 Suzuki Esteem GL 1.8 from North America
A basic reliable import wagon
I have had two Suzuki Esteem wagons and they are just as good as the highly advertised media darlings like the Civic or Corolla which I have owned also. If you love imports do you really want a Focus?
Don't believe every car review that you read as you will be surprised with Esteem.
I am disappointed that Suzuki is dropping Esteem because the styling is superior to the Aerio. The Aerio looks like a box with wheels.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have to agree, the liftover to the cargo area of the Aerio is too high, making it difficult to load heavy items.

I bought mine because it is one of the few "usable" wagons with almost no lift-over. I don't want to lift up anything heavy, it's much nicer to be able to slide it straight in or out.
