Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Suzuki Liana hatchback?
Despite the firm ride and the choice of only one engine, Suzuki Liana owners seem to take every available opportunity to express their satisfaction with their purchase, as its high showing in What Car's JD Power Satisfaction Survey shows.
The only major fault that seems to have emerged with any frequency is the suspension. If you are buying a high-mileage car from a private buyer without any warranty, it could prove useful to take along an expert who can check the supsension.
There's a fair chance that most Lianas will have been well looked after in their early years, but demand the usual test drive before purchasing.
Look out for slack-feeling or noisy gearchanges and any evidence of clutch slip. Check all the electrics are in good working order, including the central locking and the air-conditioning.
