2003 Suzuki Liana LX Hatchback 1.3 from Sri Lanka


The Best



General Comments:

This is a very good and comfortable car.

Fuel consumption is 12KMPL city and 14.5KMPL outstation.

I've been using it for one year, and so far no problems.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer?

2003 Suzuki Liana L 1.3 from UK and Ireland


Has to be the best value car in its class


Ambient temperature sensor failed at 35,000 Km. It has no function except to display the outside air temperature, so it wasn't replaced.

General Comments:

I have never had to spend a penny on this car apart from servicing and a new battery. It is the most reliable car I have ever driven, and at a budget price.

Build quality is first class, no rattles or shakes and all doors close firmly.

Interior is good with great headroom. suspension is not of modern Ford or Audi standard, but perfectly adequate.

Only downside is emissions rating is slightly higher than other cars of the same CC, which means higher road tax €333 per annum in Ireland.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had a LIANA RXI model 2006 1.3 Lit. I drove it till 2010, it was a trouble free ride, throughout the four years.

Now I have a Liana LXI since Mar-2010. This version is even better. I agree that it is the best car for its value.

Good pace, good place


Interior lamp burned out.

Front brake rotors got warped during a emergency stop from 130km/hr.

Nothing else.

General Comments:

Good solid car. Wide view out front. Nice high seating position means good comfort and view.

Handling is better than most cars at this price level.

Power is decent, but low end torque is weak when the AC is on.

Brakes are OK, but not exceptional.

Digital instruments are very clear and easy to see at night, but not so good on bright daylight hours.

Engine is pretty noisy, but not beyond the point of comfort.

Transmission shifts smoothly and promptly.

Wind noise is louder than most cars I have been in.

AC is OK, but not as good as Nissan or Toyota units.

It gets about 9km/L of fuel which is good, but worse than a Civic or a Sunny.

My Liana/Aerio uses 7,5 l/100 km (after 8000 km) and the consumption will probably reduce 5 to 10 % after 10000 km. I like to drive fast but also try to keep a steady speed most of the time.

The only faults I have experienced is rattle from the glove compartment in cold weather (fixed by myself), rattle from the front passenger door and a minor rattle from the rear (only when cournering with a heavy load).

Reasonably Good


When I got the car brand new from the dealer, there are some unimaginable faults. Firstly, the wheel alignment is out (even after rectifying once and till present, it is still veering left), faulty lock in rear left door, and poor pre-delivery polishing.

General Comments:

The new face-lift was a great! Especially the hatchback. Spacious interior, and has a ample boot space.

The high seats allow easy entering and exiting by old folks and mommy-carrying-babies. Kerb weight is around 1.8 ton which quite heavy for a 1.6L engine.

The only setback is that I'm clocking the fuel consumption at 1l=9km. And also even sadder that the VVT engine version is not brought into Singapore.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I'm sorry I made a mistake on the kerb weight. It is actually 1,180kg for the 1.6AT 5-door (2WD)

Y your fuel consumption quite high? do you travel a lot in city areas?

I'm clocking an average of 10.8km/L now. More on city driving than highway driving after 9 months now. Already installed the Cyclone2 and manufacturer also gave Denso iridium plugs. Recently made them changed the disc brakes which constantly gives a "snapping" sounds...for free.
