Such a reliable car have only done oil changes since I got it and hit a deer even and have no problems with it, withstood the deer greatly and only had to buy a new headlight case!! Highly recommended for daily driving of close to 100 miles a day! Also amazing in snow with the AWD.

I love driving my Aerio SX

I got Black Betty with less than 9,000 miles, over 7 years ago. She has been the best car EVER. my little 5 speed purse on wheels. She has taken me all over the country, through snow and ice, hail damage, dirt roads, curb checks, trash cans - the beach - the mountains and everything in between. I love this car! I can fit a LOT of stuff in this car! Mechanically, this is a very good car. Today the check engine light came on for the VERY first time (120,200 miles). And it turned out to be the O2 Sensor... No big deal- $100 fix.o2 sensors typically go out about 100k. The only "issue" I have had with this car - would be the freakin' electronic alarm/door locking system - it locked me in the car and the alarm would not turn off It went on for 45 minutes....this ended up happening to me on 3 different occasions. I tried everything - resetting the alarm-resetting the key to no avail,I finally ended up pulling the alarm/auto lock system out of the car.and went old school. The other issues cost of tires- and brake replacement. I love Black Betty - and I hope I can check back in when I. Reach 200k!

This car is worse than I thought. I feel sorry that I gave up my 2000 cadillac sivill for this dumb thing. But the good news is its very comfortable and its exterior style is good. But I liked evry thing about the caddillac. Once the air condiconer wasent working so I went to go get it fixed. The car suzuki said couldint find the problem. I have never had that problem with the Caddillac.

Very Dependable Vehicle I Have Owned

The 2006 Suzuki Aerio SX I owned for four years was a very reliable vehicle. Never had any major problems, never was in the shop except for regular maintenance. The air conditioning system was never serviced and always kept us cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter. The gas mileage was superb, as I got in the habit of planning my routes, I would only have to fill the tank once a week. The seating was good, with fold down seats in the rear you could put almost anything in the back. There are hidden compartments in the rear for storage with its own wash bucket. Went out of town a few times to Charlotte and Atlanta or Valdosta, Ga. and had to fill up twice with a ten gallon tank that got about 250 to 270 miles.

Reliable car

by from Huntsville, Alabama on January 30, 2010

The only thing I do not like is I put 25.00 worth of gas inmy aerio and just riding around the city seems to be money consuming gas wise.

I drive the Infinity G35 and my wife a Durango. Gas prices left us wanting for a 3rd car 4-banger... Not wanting just another mutt of car (I do like a little style) I ran into the Suzuki SX. Cool little car! Quick, nimble, very roomy, loaded with options that typically just arn't there in this class. The milage has been awesome and that was the motivation...but what a great surprise to love the little car so much. I looked at FIT, Yaris, even Sentra...but this car has a bonus at every turn on those. CHECK ONE OUT! Join the Suzuki car lovers club.

Decent Car For The Money

I've been driving this car - Aerio SX AWD - for about 1.5 years now and so far so good. I can't complain considering all of the options for the price ($16100 out the door). I feel safe in this car on all road conditions. I live in the Chicagoland area, and we've had several major snow storms just this past year. The car handled great. The AWD, traction control, and braking performance all faired well compared to other AWD vehicles I've had to include a Subaru Outback. The only negative comment I have is in regards to the life of the manufacturer installed brakes. At approximately 28,000 miles, I already replaced the front brake discs/pads which is rated at 40,000. Maybe it's the city driving conditions with all the stop and go, but a brake job every 1.5 years is going to be expensive.

I have owned this car for about a year now. I like how I can use it on the farm and haul item when I travel. If I go places with friends and family they can all ride comfortably (even when they are over 6 feet tall). The mp3, cd, and radio are a great combination. I travel a good bit and the best thing about this car besides the look and gas milage is how easy it is to clean out. The carpet and the seats can all be cleaned with a vacuum or even a sticky roller. The only draw back I see for this car is that it is front wheel drive instead of all wheel drive like the newer ones coming out. I live in the country and the hills with mud and ice and snow would be a little better handled I do believe if I had that feature. Though it does do very well in town no matter the conditions. Even in the ice and snow I was going while others had slid off the road. I will definatly be looking to trade this Ario sx in later on for yet another one. I LOVE THIS CAR!
