    My car

    What an excellent surprise!

    I was aprehensive about considering a Suzuki when looking to change my Fiesta, but once inside the showroom all my doubts went. The staff were helpful and positive and the car was a revelation!

    Stylish, roomy, well equipped and even good to drive.

    In all, the Honda Jazz is the better product (more quality, better engineering, top notch image), but I would have the Suzuki for it's youth appeal.

    Well done Suzuki! A breath of fresh air!

    My car

    further to my previous reviews i have now had a lot more problems with this car. it is plagued with rattles in the doors, seatbelt adjusters, headrests and now an unforgiving rattle and vibration coming from the dash. And to top it all off i have found cracked paint which has started to rust!

    In the 6 months of owning it i have taken it back to the dealer more than 8 times to get sorted and it never seems to happen.

    I have sought legal advice and am pursuing a replacement or refund.

    I really wish i bought a fiesta or clio now!

    AT LAST, A SMALL CAR WITH SOME CHARACTER! IT'S REASONABLY WELL PUT TOGETHER WITH A LARGE INTERIOR, AND ESPECIALLY GOOD HEADROOM. IT'S FUN TO DRIVE.
