Paid cash 5 years ago for a Reno with less than 20k miles. Just use it as an around town kinda car. Has approx 80,000 miles now, I've had to replace the engine, the transmission, the radiator, and numerous other things. My mechanic told me they are not well made cars.... and judging by the $$ I've had to spend to keep this thing on the road, he's right. There are plenty of choices out there today, think twice before choosing this car. I'm so mad about it, I don't think I'd ever buy any Suzuki car again

I haven't had any of the issues that the previous reviewers mentioned. The only time my Reno has been in the shop was for tires. I am completely spoiled by the gas mileage, i drive quite a bit for my job and can usually go 2 weeks on one tank.

I can't believe the two previous reviews based on the fact that this is an "economy car". I bought this little car fro my 69 year old mom two years ago and she adores it! Great gas mileage and reliable transportation that does not cost a fortune! I would not recommend for someone with long commutes or lots of highway driving, but to get around town, great car!

Suzuki Reno... never again

I bought this car for driving to work, not for long trips. I bought this car because it was inexpensive, low mileage, clean and had a decent exterior. But now after 4 month it is clear that this was a big mistake and a waste of money despite the fact that the car was inexpensive in comparison with other cars same age and mileage. During my first test drive with that car I thought the driving is acceptable for short distances, like driving to workplace every day. But it is not ! In no way! Even not for short distances. It probably better than going by foot, but maybe not safer. The suspension is simply horrible. The car is going up and down like a boat, even in curves, wich gives you a very bad and unsafe feeling. The automatic transmission is shifting or not, it seems to be a matter of luck, wich is especially not very nice while you are passing a truck. The interior looks OK, but if you are using the car for a longer time you realise how bad it is. and and and and ....... So stay away from this car !
