    My car

    This car must have the worst suspension of any car I have owned in the last 10 years.

    The springs and shocks are poorly suited for the type of roads in this country. Most bumps in the road can be felt, and if I inadvertently hit a pothole, it means a trip to the dentist to put my fillings back in!

    The engine has plenty of power high up the rev range but very little low-down torque and you need to rev the motor when pulling away otherwise it stalls. (So much for VVT).

    I have had the car back to the dealer on a number of occasions but they say it is OK. Well it may be OK to them but personally I consider the handling to be awful at certain speeds, with the back end wanting to go a different way to the front.

    I have only owned the car for four months but will be selling it soon, if I can get a reasonable price for it (which is doubtful).

    If any Suzuki dealers have a solution to these problems, I would like to hear from them!
