Great power to weight ratio, in normal range, really quick in power range.
Relatively large travel and soft suspension.
Spacious cabin, and the ergonomics are very comfortable, outstanding for this class, and a real buy compared to others in its class.
I bought this from Car Max August 2008, after calling Suzuki who verified the dealer had used it as demo, sold at auction to Carmax in July 08, and that warranty would be 9 years 11 months and remainder of 100,000 warranty, i.e. It was as close as I could get to brand new for steep discount compared to other makes or models, new or used.
Routinely obtain 29.5 mpg in mixed highway and city driving, approx 33 mpg when driving 65 mph on highway for trip.
This is lighter car than the 2001 Saturn L200 we have with its 185,000 miles, and therefore is subject to some crosswind movement on highway if the wind gusts or a transfer truck speeds by...
The content and operation of power mirrors, locks, windows, and superb stereo system are real joy to use. Touch and operation is light and crisp to all switches.
The headlights, daytime running, low beam and high beam, are fantastic.
This is best purchase I've made in my life. My wife borrows it every chance she gets when she wishes to visit relatives about 250 miles away.
Can't say enough good things about it...
