What should I look for in a used Suzuki Ignis hatchback?
Japanese manufacturers have an unsurpassed reputation for reliability, and although Suzuki's reputation can't match those of the best Japanese car makers, it has a pretty good track record overall.
Suzuki finished recent JD Power Customer Satisfaction Surveys in mid-table, and much of this success was down to solid mechanical reliability.
The Ignis itself didn't do particularly well in its latest appearance, but the good news is that most of the grumbles were over the car's looks, the way it drives and the high running costs. The Ignis's record for solid reliability remained intact.
Our most recent Reliability Survey also found that on the rare occasions that Suzukis do go wrong, repair bills are usually very cheap. In fact, Suzuki boasted the cheapest average repair bill in the entire survey, and the cheapest average hourly rate for labour.
