a car is no good if you cannot use it as a car

after being burnt by Audi i wasnt looking for another expensive classy luxury car id drive that q5 500 miles and it would start breaking down finally i got sick of being stranded and gave it away at 100k miles it needs about 7000 in work easily ! a suzuki was the last car on my mind but after driving it i was hooked the suzuki i bought was in an accident with a deer so the guy wanted it gone his insurance totaled it because the deer damaged the hood the front bumper and a headlight assembled all of which are easily replaced by anyone with mechanical aptitude! the insurance company loss my gain this suzuki has already been a million times better than my audi q5 not stylish or classy but runs circles around my audi in dependability and fuel milage ! a car isnt much good if its always breaking down suzuki is no longer in america because they ran forever and dont break down ! my only regret is that i didn't purchase 3 of them for the price of one audi and im sure there are many like myself whom wish they had shown more support for suzuki !


Fantastic little car.

@197,000 miles this little beast keeps trucking. It's as reliable as a Corolla and the AWD works great. My average MPG is 29 . This car has exceeded every expectation and I'm sad that it has been discontinued.


My Best Friend

Alright, I was not expecting to fall in love with this Suzuki. My beauty isn’t much when it comes to looks, but she’s fast as I need her to be, handles the ice well even though I only have front wheel drive, and has never given me any issues that weren’t considered routine maintenance. She’s taken me on some of my most meaningful journeys in life and I’m excited to experience the world in this vehicle. I’ve never seen a front-wheel two-wheel drive sedan make it so well off-roasting. She’s inconspicuous enough to get me around places without getting shot or pulled over n fast enough to get me out of places darn quick.
