Very reliable vehicle

by from OHIO on September 11, 2017

Very reliable. Great gas mileage, and goes very well in the snow. Always been taking care of. Honestly hate to sell this car but can't afford 3 car payments.

2007 Suzuki SX4 is a surprisingly great car!

My 07 SX4 is one of the most trouble free cars I have ever owned. Have spend almost nothing on repairs, it just keeps going. Changing oil every 3,000 miles, rotating tires, and washing it is all I have done in my years of ownership. At 150,000 miles its still going strong, and I think I will see 200,000 with out any major bills except tune-up. Does use a bit of oil (all the 2.0 liter Suzuki engines I have owned do), IF you drive at 70+ mph for 3 + hours. Around town I rarely add any oil between changes. Otherwise perfect. If they still sold these in the US (still being made in Japan) I would buy one new! Can't go wrong with an SX-4.

Everything on this car is great. It's roomy, drives well, good handling, good fuel consumption, good stereo, good feel and driveability, reasonable performance (feels like it's being held back a bit, like the engine is a bit weak but capable of more). This week though, out of nowhere the bottom end is gone. Low oil. It's inbetween service but I figured out how stupid this oil pump setup is. It will give you no warning whatsoever and when the oil light comes on it's too late you're smashing up your bottom end conrod bearings. This is the SECOND motor I know about that has done EXACTLY the same thing, a major manufacturers fault. It seems to chew oil but doesn't blow smoke so as long as you regularly monitor your oil levels you'll have a great car.

I bought my 2007 model used with only 13,000 miles on it in 2010. Switching from my beloved Ford Ranger Pick-up to this car, appeared to be to be simple decision for me to make at 1st. I want a truck, wife wants a compact car, I have the money so I'm getting another truck right? WRONG. Wife insisted I take the tiny little Suzuki for a test drive before going off and spending 20K on a slightly used pick-up truck. Long story short, I left the dealership that day owning a slightly used Suzuki SX4 for only $13,000.00 and do not regret it one bit. I did miss the extra room that the truck had for carrying and hauling stuff so I installed a Thule cargo box on ol' Suzy and solved that small issue. The car gets 2X the gas mileage that the truck did and I can park this little thing just about anywhere. I live in downtown Seattle and love being able to fit into parking spaces that most vehicles can't due to their length. Another cool feature this micro machine has is the super extra large penny slot built into the hatch back door. Not sure where I can find a giant 2' x 2' penny to slip in there, but when I do find it every body driving near me better watch-out cuz this puppy will be doing wheelies and donuts, all day n night, up and down the avenue. :0 :) Next thing I want to do with my SX4 is race one of those new little Fiat cars and blow it's freakin' doors off. Weeeeee!!!

Boring, slow & stupid

My wife's car has become mine after we purchased her an A6. The car is uncomfortable for any drive over a half an hour and terrible in situations where there are wind gusts - you had better be paying attention. While it is less than sure-footed in serious wet conditions it is better than expected in the snow. This is more surprising given that the "all wheel drive" disengages at highway speeds. It is slow to obtain highway speeds when merging. A small fuel tank (10gal) combined with MPG similar to vehicle with twice the fuel capacity means you will get to become better friends with your local fuel station clerk. I will say that after 115K miles we have had no major failures. It's just so less than average.

great little car, gas tank is small only 10 gallons. But having all wheel drive available on the fly priceless. This car fits what i need, not big not too small 143 hp gets you were you need to go. Overall reliability seems good, i'm new to the Sx4, so we'll see how it goes.

finanally someone gave this little boomer its proper due. great headroom , lots of room for legs. its just me and my wife so back seats havnt been sat on. we own 2 other cars, an infiniti 2011 g35 and a totota truck tundra 4wd 2008 and we bought this ltlle suzuki just to put our large dogs in the back to take them to the park etc. fold down seats put in thick paddinfg and its a dog palace, nice airflow to the back, rear windows go down halfway. perfect for dog riding lol gas tank could be bigger but where are these people who get 28 mph driving?? ours routinely gets 40 mph. great sound system and we bought the only burnt orange one ive ever seen for the 12,000 we paid , who cares. dealership was going out of business so we drove 120 miles to buy it and theres a dealer 12 miles from our house who wanted 16,000 for exact car( protection package, extended warranty blah blah blah 45 k and just change tires a small great car

Suzuki SX4 AWD

by from Madison, WI on May 13, 2011

Great value for the $$ - the AWD handles very well in the snow. Not a real powerful engine which is what I wanted for kids car.

I purchased my Suzuki SX4 2007 three months ago and I just love driving it. I wasn't much of a driver until now. I am a small lady but not in this car. I sit up high enough.. better than the 2007 Honda Fit. The Suzuki actually feels more sturdy than the Honda Fit.
