Nothing so far.

General Comments:

The car had been a rental, which is usually a red flag for me, but so far I've really liked it.

Got the regular FWD model, which has a bigger gas tank than the AWD model. Have just owned it for a couple of months and am saving a lot of money on gas. Get about 30 MPG, and with the 13 gallon tank, I get about 380 miles between fill ups. Paid $10,000 for it and think I got a real bargain.

Most of the negative reviews have been from people who owned the AWD or 4WD models; I would avoid those types completely.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The fact that Suzuki has stopped selling vehicles in the US should have been a red flag also.

Plan to keep it a long time, because the resale value will be far less than the $10K you paid for it.

Parts are not a problem for Suzuki owners, as there are quite a few after market suppliers, as well as Suzukicarparts.com, which sells OEM.

Additionally, these vehicles remain popular world wide, and parts can be had from other countries, if necessary.
