I bought my Aerio with 130k, and I couldn't be happier. The Four cylinder, is quiet, built well and doesn't lag. As with typical small japanese cars, required service is minimal, changing your oil, ATF (very important), brakes every 20k. When it comes time to do service like timing belt and alternator, it is still easier to do than many other vehicles. Headroom inside is very good

Good car till you need a repair!!!!!

Beside changing tires and brakes the other repairs are laborious!!! Try to replace a ball joint, all the bolts are rusted and you need to replace them all!a job of 30 min takes 4 hours in labor. wait and youll see those major flaws!!

Amazing Vehicle!

I bought this car new and now have over 290,000 KMs (180,000 miles) today. You did not read that wrong! I have never had a problem with the engine or transmission. To put this in further perspective, I live in the coldest city in the world, Winnipeg MB. This car has been an absolute blast to drive! It still handles beautifully and still has as much power today as the day I drove it off the lot. With routine maintenance I don't think this car will ever die. I would recommend this car to everyone!

What an Amazing Car!

I've owned my Suzuki Aerio SX for 5 years and have over 80k miles. In that time I've driven it through ice/snow storms, high heat and across country twice. This little car hasn't given me ANY problems whatsoever. In fact, except for fluid changes (and irregular ones at that), 2 new sets of tires and new brakes at 75k miles, I've had no problems. Body still looks brand new, although the bumpers are a little flimsy and may crack if you hit something high. Interior is very high quality, especially compared with the cheap stuff in cars today. After over 80,000 miles it's still running like the day I bought it and body is still solid. Impressive for an inexpensive car that I've driven hard

I liked the room and AWD. Car does great in all conditions. Milage OK avg. 27plus MPG commute. When there is no traffic 30 MPG at 65 to 70 MPH. Stero system terrible in the PA mountains. Only complaint is that it goes through factory front pads every 12k. Goes 30k with after market pads. I have over 175000 miles on the car and it shows no signs of giving up.

It's a good car. Although, when we went on vacation and unplugged the battery cable and came back and plugged it back in, the stereo was locked. Now we can't use the stereo - it's locked forever!

My Aerio has been a great car, bought it new, only 5 miles on it. Some initial buzzing in door panels, but dealership fixed that right away, just tightned some nuts. Gas MPG's started out low but kept improving with more miles. Now gets 25 city if I drive reasonably and as high as 41.5 mpg hwy with avg hwy mpg's around 33 mpg. Storage capacity is outstanding, specially with the back seats down. Only 1 warranty claim so far, the water pump bearing, and the dealership treated me like royalty, free loaner car and fantastic attitude. I constantly get compliments on the looks of the car interior. Has it's minor quirks just as all cars do but none of them are serious. I recommend it to anyone!

I was researching many different cars and trucks focusing on Ford Rangers, which I like a lot, Corolla's, and the Matrix Wagon. As soon as I drove the Suzuki Aerio around the block I was sold. The car had 45,000 miles on it but ran silky smooth, has good acceleration and go cart like handling. I will definitely consider buying another new one. Suzuki has made a believer out of me. Like another reviewer here I am 6'3" and this car has more head room and open space inside than my Subaru, or Rav, which are both great cars as well, it's just the Aerio is the best handling sporty drive of the three and shifts gears so smoothly I rarely feel it. The sound system also rocks.

Decent car, great value

I purchased my Suzuki Aerio new for just over $15k. I drove it until the fall of 2008 when I went to a Nissan Frontier. I put almost 50k catastrophe-free miles on it, and believe I got more than my money's worth. Though not as refined or well-designed as it's competition, the Aerio is a terrific value and, at least in my case, a reliable, versatile vehicle. If you can deal with it's quirks, and don't mind a rough ride, it's definitely worth a look. I don't regret going to a pickup, but I do miss the fuel economy of the Aerio. My mother has the car now, and has been using for over a year with no issues; the AWD is a great safety feature, and a real plus here in snowy N

Purchased used 06 in Jan 2010 with 48,000 miles. Very pleased with 31 MPG. Seats are comfortable and supportive which I believe the tall cabin and upright seating contribute too. Mine is the basic model so no cruise. Wish Suzuki had cut cost on the “Auto” climate control system and made cruise standard. Also wish the intermittent wpers had more variation. One speed intermittent wipers just doesn’t cut it in the Northwest. Clutch is smooth and positive. Impressed with fit and finished of interior except for the carpet which is a bit thin. Large trunk area is nice and fold down seat add to the space but body structure intrudes making the opening behind the seat somewhat constricted.

This car is a blast to drive. I have doubled my driving distance since buying this car because it is so much fun to drive. I find I drive it a little to fast but I love to drive it fast. I'm 63 and would recommend this car to any age. Such a shame they didn't do better advertising on this car, it would have out sold a lot of other cars if it had gotten more air time. The only car I have ever owned that I loved as much as this one was my 1961 Red Austin Healy. My SX is red not as fast as fast as the Austin Healy but just as much fun to drive!

While it is fun to drive, the sound system needs upgrade in speaker placement and sound quality. The cup holders in the front only hold a 12 oz can securely. Anything else will spill all over when accelerating or braking. The seats are comfortable even over long distances. I'm very disappointed with the gas mileage. I'm getting only 22 mpg. A little car like this should get more like 30 mpg. Perhaps a larger fuel tank so it will go farther. The new Camaro gets better mileage. Cargo area is excellent and the area under the floor is very convenient.

I LOVE the AERIO. The couch in a boat(crown Vic) was scary driving on wet roads and the weight was great for coasting. The security the Aerio has provided is the biggest seller for me. It hugs the road and grabs the corners without any sway. The control of the front end with the Aerio sets the ice fear to the back burner. The power on the 2 uphill climbs over looking a steep cliff makes me feel !!!! The seat wraps around you like a race car seat for secure fit in a drive of great head and arm room with two people in the front, I the larger lovebug and I do NOT feel crunched in any way. Like sitting in a chair, sliding across the seat for entry (not a drop to the floor)

All of my family members love it. The trunk has a wide opening and plenty of room for an oversize stroller and lots of other items. It is getting good gas mileage, too.

The brakes in my Aerio went out the month of Nov. I had to wait one week to get this fixed I had to rent a vehicle to drive. I am not a happy customer. I do not like this car. I have spent more more on repairs in six months than I did on a used vehicle in a year. This was suppose to be economical for me, so far I have spent over $1,000. I still need to get an oil change again. I drive a lot. I need my car to get to my grandson. This is not a good vehicle for me. It is not acceptable that dealers do not keep parts in stock when they know no one else can get these part for a year before they release the correct specification.

But after my Mom took me to a Suzuki dealership, which was unusual because I am a Honda lover, I immediately fell in love with the look of the Aerio. Because I am in my 20's, I didn't want a minivan but also didn't want to revisit my teenie bopper days. It's a hip car with a mature feel.

The cabin is roomy even with my wife, two kids, and myself in the car there is plenty of room. The car has the power to do what we need and still gets great fuel economy. For a guy who loves the big cars I am really impressed with this little car. Driving it is fun, just ask my wife. She herself is tall and she is extremely comfortable in it and loves the stereo and steering wheel controls. Neither of us would be shy about recommending one of these little cars to our friends or family.

I traded my Subaru Legacy for this sweet ride. It has a smooth ride, good gas milage, an attractive exterior, and a nice interior. Plus I saved a bunch of money by buying it instead of buying a new Subaru. Its AWD system is the same, it has a good driving position and good seat height (which is important if you have a bad back). Its seat is higher than the ones in Subarus . This is a great little wagon.

It's not as peppy as the 03' Mustang we traded in but it's a lot of fun to drive. The best feature of this car is the roominess inside. It's very deceiving!

I bought my 2006 Aerio SX premium package based on my roomates expirience with his 2004 SX AWD. I think it's the best car for the money. Its warranty has no deductable and is FULLY transferable, not just to a family memeber like the Korean brands. The only negative about the car is buzzing door panels on rough roads. Talk to your dealer, they will fix for free like mine did. If you can find any of these cars left, then snatch it up because they are no longer making them. A new car is coming out but it won't be an Aerio. Hurry before they are all gone!

From the shiny exterior to the upgraded interior features, the Suzuki Aerio offers much more than its class competition. It comes with electric windows, door locks, mirrors, keyless remote entry, side airbags, a visually catchy instrument panel, and great CD/MP3 6 speaker sound system with steering wheel controls to start things off. Add an impressive 2.3 litre power plant with a responsive automatic transmission for quick highway response. As a tall person, I appreciate the high seating position that aids in visibility and easy access. Its steering is responsive and the suspension gives you a bigger feel than the car actually is. the Aerio has a unique design in the parking lot and on the freeway, I like Aerio's stingy attitude toward gas.

My 2006 Suzuki Aerio is my fourth new car purchase and fourteenth car purchase ever. For a small, low-priced and economic car, the handling, power, and comfort are excellent. This line of cars will catch up to the other Japanese car-makers in a few years and will probably become like-priced. Buying now gets you a super-bargain.

Fun Car

I just love the fact that the Suzuki Aerio is so roomy and comfortable, but still handles like it's a sportscar. I have tons of room for road trips with friends, trips to the grocery store or just moving one large object with the fold down seats. Being a tall person, I have plenty of head and leg room without stealing it from the others in the car. This is a must look at if you love to travel or just like looking good wherever you go.

I just bought a 2006 Suzuki Aerio Premium and I love it! It's so easy to handle. It's a perfect little car to keep me on the go.

Great Car

I had a couple of TSBs to take care of on my Suzuki Aerio, but since then the car has been great! I am getting better than the rated mpg and I love the amount of room it has for such a small car. The interior is a little weak or "cheap," but the rest of the car seems great.

Great value for the money

Everything in my Suzuki Aerio seem to be of good quality for a vehicle in this price range, including the audio. The dash plastics seem to have been upgraded in the 2006 model to be semi-soft. The tires pick up a bit of road noise - probably replacements will help. It is a bit narrow compared to its peers (especially the MINI Cooper and Scion Xa) and the track is actually less than the width. Thus the Scion and Cooper exhibit a bit less roll and slightly better handling, but the engine and wealth of features make the Aerio a much better choice in its class.

I only bought my 2006 Suzuki Aerio because the 2006 Honda Civic was out of my league. It turns out that this was very fortunate for me. It's big, comfortable, and has lots of zoom. This is a fun car and it is loads cheaper than Hondas!

Way to go Suzuki!

This is a big car in a little package! It is fun, safe, and very roomy. The Aerio is very practical, especially if you have pets or children.

Lots of Fun for the Price!

I'm tall, 6' 4" and commute 120 miles per day. My Suzuki Aerio is very roomy for its size. This was not my first choice, but it was the right choice. It is powerful, roomy and just plain fun to drive. It could use a little more power (for the canyon), but otherwise it is a great buy. With the options for the price, you can't go wrong. Plus it comes with a 100,000 mile warranty. I haven;t had any problems with mine so far.

Love It!

So far, this car has been great. We average 30 mpg. We are older, and very tall people and find the comfort and convenience all that we can ask for in this inexpensive car.
