First trouble free car owned
No failures or problems at all.
The car has been the most trouble free car I have ever owned. After losing the engine in my Century due to the intake manifold gasket destroying the engine, I needed a car quick. This Verona was a lemon buyback, but I cannot understand why. The car has performed flawlessly and I was able to buy it for 40% of the new car price, approximately $9,000 and still carries the full Suzuki warranty to back it up. Apparently the first owner had a stalling problem that took three times for the dealer to fix and then the owner still complained about the problem. It has never done that for me.
Rides as smooth as the Buick Century, quick off the line, maybe not as quick to pass on the highway (but I rarely drive over 5mph under the speed limit). Made several trips in and out of Florida this year already.
One possible improvement, I use to get 29MPG on trips in the Buick and it had the 3.1L V6. This engine although still a small 6, so far has only given 28MPG on the trips and has not been quite as good in the city. Use to get 21MPG and now get 20MPG for the around town driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
