This vehicle has many positives and very few negatives. Overall, with close to 150,000 miles on it, it has held up very well mechanically. The only repair work done has been because of worn parts. The engine is still going strong with no signs of trouble. The vehicle's interior still looks nice and the cloth fabric has held up very well. There is ample trunk space. The vehicle comes equipped with 4 wheel drive which makes it nice to drive in snow and muddy conditions. It hasn't had a problem with anything we have asked it to tow. Best of all, the trunk without the security cover makes the perfect place to load your dogs and head out on an adventure with them.
We bought this car used, everything seemed fine but there is a safety issue with this model with the passenger airbag sensor for when it knows children are in the seat or not. That was a pricey repair bill...And this still haven't recalled this part as far as I know. It's comfortable for everyday use, medium length trips but not for long ones. Gas mileage is fine, about 22. Repair costs are a little difficult to say because since it's a foreign car it's a gamble on who can and cannot work on it besides a Suzuki dealer, if a shop can then it's a gamble on whether or not they get the right part in and how long it takes them to repair it. It's fun to drive, handles great, and it feels like a safe car (once we got the safety issue fixed.)
