Best Car I've driven so far...

by A Suzuki fan from Tulare Co.,CA on Sun Aug 24 2008

After test driving many newer vehicle's I found this '04 Aerio SX and never looked back. It has plenty of space for me and my family and more than enough room for our luggage. I've taken the car on 3 trips and never had troubles going uphill or passing. Plain and simple it's a great car.

Suzuki Aerio is Great Car

by Knitknot7 from on Sun Apr 23 2017

I drove the car 10 years. The first 4 years, I was getting brakes about every 1.5 years. The car only drives smoothly with the factory tires which are expensive. The only exception was one year I just did not have enough money to buy the high-end tires so I went to Sears and got some Toyo tires, when the tires were inflated properly they worked great but now Toyo does not make those tires for this car anymore. One other down side is finding parts. If you have to take it in for work and a part is needed you will have to wait several days in most cases.

Great bang for the buck

by Jbig9 from Eatontown, N.J. on Sat Feb 24 2018

So far my Aerio is very good! Bought it used from a Cadillac dealership as a trade in. It has the 5 spd., so it’s nice and peppy! The interior is not great as far as looks, but it’s plenty roomy for over 6ft. people. My only complaint is that when it’s windy out, prepare for a fight! The Aerio dances in the wind like a drunk at a party, it’s all over the place! Great little commuter, but don’t expect to turn heads or get any compliments.

Excellent Commuter and Travel Car

by Knitknot7 from Georgia on Wed Nov 08 2017

I was lucky enough to be given a brand new 2004 Suzuki Aerio SX. It only had 9 miles on the speedometer? For the first 5 years I drove it back and forth to work. I could fill the tank up on Sunday night and it would last until Saturday morning. The model has a great sound system with 6 CD changer. I am 6'1" and there was plenty of leg room to spare. After the first 5 years I got into a hobby that had me traveling around the Southeast US quite a bit. Excellent highway miles. At about 8 years old things started to need to be replaced (Which I understand). The only down side to it is that the parts are very expensive to replace and hard to find. Don't expect anyone to have the part on hand. It will almost always need to be ordered. I got stranded in Savannah, GA when something went wrong with the passenger side wheel well. It took three days to get the part in and then an extra day to replace the part because the Suzuki uses a special tool that only one mechanic had and he had been on vacation.

Our Take on the 2004 Suzuki Aerio

The Little Engine That Can
2004 Suzuki Aerio LX

Let us consider the urban runner.

It has four wheels instead of two feet. It consumes gasoline instead of carbohydrates. It emits carbon monoxide -- which, unlike the carbon dioxide exhaled by humans, isn't good for green plants or other organic life.

But with proper pollution controls, the motorized urban runner can be good, practical and even fun. It is small, efficient, a blessing in city traffic and parking garages; and it is growing in safety, numbers and engineering sophistication.

You can be forgiven for not knowing that. The American preoccupation with sport-utility vehicles, pro and con, has consigned the urban runner to obscurity... Read More
